Martin Luther King Jr., “Why I am Opposed to the War in Vietnam,” 1967
the MLK that’s never quoted; real reasons why he was assassinated
- police officer: you're under arrest for shooting someone in the chest
- me: whoever made the rhyme did the crime(:
- police officer: haha i have to give you credit for that one dude you're off the hook
Just because the body responds automatically does not mean the impulse was ever wanted, invited, or condoned.
This is also often used as an argument to dismiss male survivors’ claims, that they responded physically therefore they consented. This is absolute bullshit.
Remember. Arousal does not mean consent.
