No one wants to talk about itNo one wants to talk about it but I will. I’m tired of it. Most people don’t speak or say anything about it.
It being the frequent use of Sexual assault in the wolf RPG community. It’s gross, it’s disrespectful and it needs to completely stop.

PSA To The WWF CommunityWarning, this journal contains mature themes in the screens regarding the topics of rape and predatory fetishes, please do be advised as you keep scrolling
There are also helpful links to various journals that have spoke up on the subject below , please do read those as well!
yes, this is a callout as koeyohte so graciously dropped my name in her public group after I took the higher ground and never pointed fingers, now I am forced to defend myself.

There is an abhorrent amount of rape fetish and sexual abuse roleplayed in canine ARPG groups here on dA.
Time to put an end to that.
