Anonymous asked: If a woman drinks too much and sleeps with a man, does that make it rape? I don't think so. And Hook has never admitted to rape -- has he admitted serving drinks to a woman to get her to loosen up, yes. But, it's not rape. And Hook has gone through his own demons; losing his brother, Milah, his hand, Bae, and living his life seeking for a way towards revenge for so many years. Regina isn't the only one who lost something important. As for any negative influence for a younger audience... -- cont.

Excuse me?

A man getting a woman drunk in order to sleep with her IS RAPE.

THIS IS RAPE. You legally cannot consent to sex when you are drunk.

I can’t stress this enough. GETTING PEOPLE DRUNK IN ORDER TO HAVE SEX WITH THEM IS RAPE.

RAPE. NOT “SERVING DRINKS TO A WOMAN TO GET HER TO LOOSEN UP”. THAT IS RAPE. RAPE. RAPE. RAPE. RAPE.

The fact that Hook has demons, has lost members of his family and his hand, DOESN’T EXCUSE THE FACT THAT HE RAPES WOMEN. THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR RAPE. Nothing can grant you the right to rape people. NOTHING. Not the loss of a hand, not the loss of loved ones - nothing. NOTHING.

Children are like sponges. They absorb every information you give them.

If a young viewer is watching this show and accepting these characters as their role models, that young viewer WILL look up to their actions and behavior. And if Hook’s rapist behavior isn’t addressed as a bad thing, that young viewer will not think that his actions are wrong. Therefore, they will believe that, seeing as Hook gets rewared for his awful behavior, whatever he does is the right thing to do. THIS IS WRONG.

Regina is constantly getting punished for her bad actions. Hook is constantly getting rewarded for his.

This is not about ships.

This is NOT about characters.

This goes way beyond that.

And the fact that you can’t even understand that getting people drunk in order to have sex with them is rape only further proves my point.

There are so many things off about this rant…

While I agree that a man taking advantage of a drunk/non-consensual/unconscious woman is rape, none of these things happened in this episode, nor were they admitted to by Hook.

Men and women drink in these places.  They are called bars and taverns.  Alcohol is used as a way of “loosing up” and relaxing.  There is literally no other reason to drink alcohol.

Emma, on the other hand, did use alcohol and overt sexuality to distract Hook and use his ship. 

As far as children are concerned, it’s very important to not only know what your children are watching, but to watch with them and hold discussions about any problematic themes that come up.

I literally choked on my tea when I came to the part about Regina being punished and Hook getting rewarded.  This shows the OP’s bias against Hook more than anything else.  Regina hasn’t been “punished” for even 1% of the murders she committed, not to mention some of her “lesser” crimes.  Lana’s portrayal of Regina is very moving and she is one of my favs, but she has literally gotten away with mass murder.  People not liking her isn’t really a punishment; it’s a consequence.

Hook literally lost his left hand because he fell in love with another man’s wife, was knocked out, tied to a chair and left in a storage container when he tried to kill Rumple, was beaten with a cane by Rumple after he kidnapped Archie, was hit by a car when he shot Belle, was cursed and then drowned by Zelena when he didn’t tell Emma the truth.  Heck, even his present self knocked out his past self.  I’m probably forgetting something, but you get the point.  He has been maimed, beaten, imprisoned, and nearly killed for his misdeeds.

Hook: “If I didn’t know any better, I’d say you were trying to get me drunk. That’s usually my tactic.” Hook implied that he actually got women drunk. Not that they were drinking on their own. He got them drunk and then had sex with them. That is date rape.

He’s calling Emma out on trying to get him drunk and trying to make a joke about it.  People get drunk and have sex all the time.  I suppose all the women who sleep with drunk men are committing date rape too?  No?  Is that because we assume all men want to have sex, no matter what?

This is where I believe that this goes too far.  If a man or woman forces themselves on another or drugs them so that they have no control over their own body, that is rape.  But people who drink need to know when to stop, regardless of who is encouraging them to continue drinking.  You’re placing all the blame on the one person when most times, an equal amount is on both parties.

You missed my point entirely. If the women had indicated that they wanted to sleep with Hook and then drank willingly, that’s fine. But Hook said that HE got women drunk and then slept with them. In their intoxicated state, they could not consent to having sex with him. Saying that it was his tactic to get women drunk was hardly something to joke about. That is date rape. In fact, if he really was joking about it, then I find him even more morally repugnant than I already do. (Then again, he did make rape jokes as he leered over a pinned down Emma in 2x09. And he also threatened to gang-rape Milah when Rumple came to beg for her release. Rape does seem to be funny to him.)

How the fuck do people defend this shit?

“I can live alone, if self-respect, and circumstances require me so to do. I need not sell my soul to buy bliss. I have an inward treasure born with me, which can keep me alive if all extraneous delights should be withheld, or offered only at a price I cannot afford to give.”
