People still try to use "not ladylike" as an insult? LOL
The worst thing you can say to someone whose power/control has just been undermined is "You should respond the way *I* want you to."
Why yes, the biological sex of (nonhuman mammals) IS socially constructed, since you ask. Specifically, by humans who categorize them.
Here's the thing with trauma. There is such a variety of ways that people react and the ways our bodies respond.
PEOPLE. It is not "motherload." It is "motherLODE." Lode is a real thing. Look it up!
Some people go numb, some get angry, some are terrified, some can't sleep, some drink, and yes, some have sex. Or any combination of those.
That the line between seduction and rape is not blurred, it's well-defined!
Could somebody be re-traumatizing themselves by having sex soon after a rape? Possibly, but it's for them to decide. There's no time limit.
That person gets to decide, that's who. It would be great if every tauma victim got to sit down with a therapist and unpack the trauma
And who would get to decide what that time limit was? Where's the cutoff?
