The Trading Post
08.12.18. Now that the Trading Post has been operating for exactly a month, we'll be making some changes in response to some problems that have arisen since it's introductions. Comments can no longer be edited after a certain amount of time, so we ask that you post ONE strudel per comment, so that you can hide the comments after it has been traded off. Posting multiple in the same comment causes confusion if you cannot hide just one strudel in particular. ALSO if your strudel is not on the masterlist, please post to the Can't find your strudel? entry on the StrudelCupboard (https://www.deviantart.com/strudelcupboard) to help us find any missing babies! We're super quick about updating!

Warning. ALL the posts linked here, actual or screen capped, are triggering- trigger warnings for rape, victim blaming, and general insensitivity towards the retaliating victims.

This is more likely than not going to get nasty because I am calling people out. I am well aware of it, but this needed to be said. It needed to be done, because what has happened is inex-fucking-cusable.

Also. The intention of this post is NOT to direct hate towards anyone. This is an example of how NOT to treat victims of rape, an example of how using rape as a plot device- without proper research and consideration of survivors- is something that should be best left to private RP and not a public forum like twitter- ESPECIALLY since I'm finding that there are more survivors in the MERP than I realized.

And each and every one of them are gorgeous, talented, strong and brilliant people- and I consider myself insanely lucky to know them.

That a sari was never raped. She just killed jokers sister so she could live. Lol

I know. The fact that she automatically assumed that the Asari's PTSD was a product of rape and using it as a reason why her "plot" was "okay" was just another reason SHE was the idiot.

Also? This girl has not played ME3, so she really has no ground to stand on in that regard. =/

It's pretty damn obvious Ashley is racist because of the first contact war. Her granddad was screwed over at Shanshi because he surrendered.

I doubt she played any game. Or she skipped over ME1.

I was abused as a kid. While it has made me a bit fasinated in rape, I leave it alone when RPing on a public forum. But just asuming any woman with issues has been raped is stupid. My vanguard has trouble commiting to a relationship because she grew up on earth and learned not to get close to anyone, not because she was raped.

There are better choices people.

I've "liked" the post. Which... seems oddly wrong in some ways. But still.

I've read it, and don't really have anything to say (quelle surprise) except that I'm here for you (belatedly; stupid laptop) and Jay and everyone.

*Generic internet hugs because predictability*

Thank you for this.

I don't think I'm in a good place to read it all but thank you so much for being brave enough to stand up for victims of abuse. I wish I had half the guts that you do.

Thank you, hon. Normally, I keep quiet because it hurts to talk about, being a survivor myself, but I just couldn't keep my mouth shut when friends of mine were being attacked for standing up for themselves.
