Rapists Explain Themselves on Reddit, and We Should Listen

This makes my stomach curl. I will not go to Reddit itself. But this is important. And in the book Unloved and Untamed you get to explicitly see why a rapist does what he does. It’s a discussion that echoes throughout the #cuilverse in many ways. It’s something that’s missing from so much “rape porn” media out there. I am the only author as far as I know that takes a trauma-informed approach to abuse. While the #cuilverse is very surreal and even silly, trauma and illness are never taken lightly. If you’d like to see some of what these conversations are like (in a possibly much less triggering context than Reddit) then let me know and I’ll share it here.

“That’s arguably the most disturbing takeaway from the thread: these guys are so disconnected from reality that they don’t even feel the need to look women in the face to be sure they’re interested.”
