I’ve been thinking quite a bit about the differences between seduction, harassment and rape and how to articulate them clearly.
I think I’ve figured out a potential explanation based on the idea of the legitimacy of consent.
A seducer accepts their partner’s state of non-consent as legitimate, but attempts to entice them to change it.
A harasser attempts to make their partner believe they have no right not to consent.
A rapist ignores consent entirely or actively seeks out a lack of consent.
Discuss and if you don’t, you’re not a real man.
