Post a Comment. Monday, 13 December Dawson's Creek and rape culture: Here's a strange and possibly embarrassing admission: I mean: As an adult! If you want to stop reading right here, I would not blame you.
This dynamic is taken to its logical extreme in Buffy: I'm going to make you feel it. I love you too!Beautiful Older Ladies Wants Sex Encounter West Valley City Utah
What we want from TV and what we want from our lives are not the same thing. I'm not a big fan of policing fantasy; I don't think anyone is, really: I'd imagine we Dawson Creek al sexy ladys all agree on the basic ground rules that "if you're not hurting anyone and all your sex-shenanigans involve only consenting grown-ups, then whatever gets you off is lovely, well done".
I don't think the fact that I'm susceptible to this particular romantic narrative makes me a bad person, or a bad feminist, or a rape-apologist, and I don't think it's something I need to fix. And I keep coming back to this: Rape culture is regarding violence as sexy and sexuality as violent.
Pursuit, conquest; yielding, submission. I can be merrily dissecting the troublesome messages purveyed by a Dwason while simultaneously getting swept away by the incredible heart-tugging cheese of it.
There are people who refuse to watch TV with me because it can be hard to hear the dialogue over my never-ending mutters of "oh Dawson Creek al sexy ladys, so every time you kiss her she pushes you away and says DON'T KISS ME, so obviously the sensible thing Dawsn do is carry on kissing her?
Then again, these people might just be refusing to watch TV with me because I am watching Dawson's Creek.
