About Me

I'm a chubby little kitsune that likes to read alot!  Forgive me if you find me asleep in your fanfiction, I'm probably just recharging a little before I finish.

Plotbunnies make delicious snacks, which is why so few of my tales ever get published.

 

Want to find me elsewhere?

Main

I am against stories that treat sexual abuse, harassment, and rape as normal behavior. I have written several stories containing such topics, especially when writing true-to-life/history stories, but I always mark them as being about deviant behavior and acknowledge that it's illegal or morally wrong. Contrary to my detractors' beliefs, I do this not to 'protect' someone from the hard facts of life, but so that I do not contribute to the belief that people should put up with this behavior from someone who claims to love them.

Everyone, even, and maybe especially, we fanfic writers, need to stand up against sexual abuse whether it's toward a male or a female. One of the reasons sexual harassment and date rape was and can still be so very hard to prosecute is because it has been socially acceptable for so long. After all romance novels have rape scenarios. In women's own popular fiction, it's often considered permissible for one person to force another as long as the forced person enjoys the act at some point.

The fact is that beginning in the 1970s, the romance book industry pushed writers to incorporate rape in their novels if they wanted to be published. This gave birth to the 'bodice ripper,' novels that espoused women being raped and later falling in love with their rapist. These were set in a "remote historical setting allowing women to enjoy the rape fantasy from a safe distance." That's party line, folks, right out of official documents.

Legally-speaking, these stories stopped in the late 1980s, though they have continued through today in paranormal romances. Now called non-con, these stories labor under the so-called 'understanding' that the creature perpetuating the rape is ruled by animalistic tendencies. What makes them 'okay' to many is that though the person does not want to have sex, being forced (a less emotionally-charged word than raped) eventually leads to so-called 'true love'. Frankly, if I knew that getting bit by a were-animal would turn me into a rapist, I'd put myself down immediately. Exerting power over another person does not equal love, nor does it lead to love. Ask a rape counselor, cop, or psychiatrist, and they'll agree... exerting your will over someone else's stated desires is rape.

The truth is that no matter what is done to it, the human body will protect itself and act as it is designed to. That means that even if the brain is screaming in horror, the body will react in many of the same ways it would if a desired lover was touching it. It's not that the person wanted to respond to or enjoy their rapist's touch, it is that their body reacted normally. That's nothing to hold against the assaulted person, or that they should hold against themselves... although it regularly is.

It is conjectured that half to three-quarters of all rapes are date rapes, and date rape is one the least reported kinds of rape. Currently, statistics on rape say that 1 in 6 women are rape survivors, and 92,700 men are raped every year in America. 1in6.org, an excellent resource for male victims, says that one in six boys under sixteen have been victims of sexual abuse. Yes, in this so-called modern America that we are so proud of, over a third of our population have been victims of rape or molestation.

itsonus.org states that it is up to each and every individual to recognize that non-consensual sex is sexual assault, to identify situations in which sexual assault may occur, to intervene in situations where consent has not or cannot be given, and to create an environment in which sexual assault is unacceptable and survivors are supported.

For purposes of Texas sexual assault law, a "child" is a person younger than 17 years of age. The act is considered to have been without the victim's consent if physical violence was threatened or used in order to get the victim to submit or participate to the defendant's actions. Also, if the victim for any reason is physically unable to resist or appreciate the nature of the act being performed, there is a lack of consent. Consent is lacking in any situation where the defendant is in a place of power or charged with the care of the victim. This includes the defendant being a health care services provider, clergyman, public servant, or an employee of a facility where the victim resides. - See more at: http://statelaws.findlaw.com/texas-law/texas-sexual-assault-laws.html#sthash.Gz3VDmsO.dpuf

Awww, thank you for your kind compliments on The Shikon and the Miko, I'm so happy to hear you're enjoying it! As it is a drabble story I have regular updates, a new chapter will be out every Tuesday!

Hiya!

Thank you for reviewing Chapter 11 of How to Annoy A Hanyou! Your review was very kind, but also very informative too. I honestly didn't know about Chokyuuki! I do now after googling about him. XD!

I had no idea that the concept I'd used for the necklace had already had similarities in the anime!

Wow! That's brilliant!

It's sort of canon! Sort of lol!

Thanks again, and you do raise an interesting point. I have plans for Sesshoumaru, and a few more things to add in later about the necklace as well. The extra info you've given me shall definitely make things very interesting.
Feedback from SilverontheRose: Oh yes, Kagome has been subjugated many times by lesser demons wanting to marry her. She's always broken the compulsion though. Glad I could give you some good fodder for your story!

The Everly Brothers - they had so many good ones. I have to say Ebony Eyes and Cathy's Clown are probably my favorites, though Bird Dog is up there, too. Glad you liked what I did with Ebony Eyes - thinking about it, this song was just perfect for an AU Sess/Kag, you know?

Thank you, Silver, for another review on Chain. :3

I'm glad you liked the chapter, and how I managed the reunion. I wanted Inuyasha's reaction to be canon and realistic, and not just make him the usual jerk he is portrayed as quite often.

And I'm really happy and honoured to hear you think my portrayal of Kagome's emotions is realistic, as realism is the very goal I strive for! ^_^

And Kagome's feelings for Sesshoumaru have already begun to change. ;3

You're welcome. :3 I'm glad you appreciated the dedication.
I'm happy to hear you found it realistic. The mating scene was really difficult for me to write, considering my characterisations and the couple's feelings in that situation.

Inuyasha's reaction will be told in next chapter. ;3 So keep intrigued until then, at least!

And have happy holidays! *hugs back*

Thanks for the review!

Sesshoumaru is good at practicing restraint. I need that hime for later on in the story, so I can't go killing her off. *Sigh* And, it is a Jane Austin story so no blood and gore, unless you are reading the zombie version out there.

Besides, Sesshoumaru is growing up...all little demon boys learn that killing something is not always the best way to resolve a disagreement. Right? Hm, maybe.

Thanks for the review on chapter 7. It has been very difficult trying to keep the two as close to character as possible, when I have forced them into different roles.

It is highly satisfactory to know that I have managed, to some degree, to fulfill this task with this literary endeavor. *wink*
Feedback from SilverontheRose: You are doing a fine job. I know how hard it is to not add in one's own interpretations... especially with Sess and Kags. Keep up the good work!

Welcome to Dokuga I bumped into your fics "Broken Blessings" and "Sacrifice" in ffnet some time ago. Glad to see you here.
Feedback from SilverontheRose: Thanks! I've been reading here for a while, but got the urge to move some stories to a new home. I'm so happy you liked them!
