PIV is always rape, ok?

Correct me if I’m wrong, but I’m assuming PIV stands for Penis In Vagina or some variation on that.

I have one simple question to ask. If as you say, PIV isn’t natural, and is in fact rape, and shouldn’t happen, how do you propose (without going into too much gory detail) we propagate the species? You still need components (for use of a better word) from both a male and a female person.

Just to recall a basic fact: Intercourse/PIV is always rape, plain and simple.

This is a developed recap from what I’ve been saying in various comments here and there in the last two years or so. as a radfem I’ve always said PIV is rape and I remember being disappointed to discover that so few radical feminists stated it clearly.

      Of course you’re right, but I can’t just sit back and do nothing while they spread their bile and bullshit.

        I do think that sometimes sitting back and doing nothing is exactly the right response to bile and bullshit.

        Namely. when the bile and bullshit is just marginal nonsense spread within a narrow echo chamber and any involvement simply helps spread it.
