    While I understand why, it’s unfortunate that women are almost never willing to talk publicly about the crimes done to them. Perhaps we’d be a better society if they did.

    • Not just women. If what I heard is true, male rape victims are less willing to talk about what happened to them than female rape victims are willing to talk about what happened to them.

    • My interpretation of the comic was that the women expect that the narration will cause their rapes, and that is where their objection is coming from.

        • It’s kinda hard to say if that’s true regarding fictional characters. I mean, most are given “backstories” that chronologically predate the beginning of the narratve stream, so it’s not unreasonable to say they’ve already been raped, they’d just rather not talk about it.

          Ah, the philosophy of fiction.

    What I find mildly amusing is, I assume none of these women have been victimized yet, so it isn’t even that they don’t want to talk about their rape, it’s that they don’t want to be raped just so they can be used in this example case.
