I really can’t believe that I have to explain this. I’m appalled by the videos and pictures that I’ve seen. I mean really? This is dressing up pedophilia - the rape of a child, and in these videos I’ve seen girls and boys as young as fucking three - as a cute, lovable, and funny animated character. Not just any animated character, a bear. A bear that is often used as something to represent a snuggly, warm, and comforting object to a child. Now we’ve turned something that is suppose to be comforting, into a joke about raping and/or molestation of a kid.
This is utterly revolting. The worst part is I’ve seen these pictures posted from self-described feminists or other social justice tumblrs. When you dress up this disgusting problem - which is something that everyone of us should be concerned about and fighting against - as nothing more than a funny cartoon to get a few shits and giggles out of, we forget the survivors. The victims. The people that are trying to seek inner closure, or to just be fucking heard for a change. To not have the worst experience of their life used as a punchline, to have it trivialized and as if it didn’t mean anything. Because most likely, if they sought justice or told anyone about it, that’s the response they will get.
To add on to that, we’re making it seem like this is acceptable behavior, and we’re just opening up more opportunities for it to continuously happen. No, I’m not saying that these images and videos are going to jump through the screen and force a thought into someone’s head to go out and rape someone. I am stating that because we cannot, in unison, come to the understanding that pedophilia, rape, and molestation in any form, is a vile and atrocious act, and is wrong, we’re simply letting it be known that they probably won’t even be punished for it - either by their friends, their families, or even the state. And if they wanted, they could make a cute, animated bear doing the same horrid act they just did, so someone can have a good, fucking laugh.
