40. No is a complete sentence.

No. You don't need anything after that, and anyone who doesn't respect that no, is a rape apologist. Treat anyone's no as negotiable, and you are enabling rape culture, pure and simple. Most often, of course, it is women who try to say no, and when you take the fact that women are conditioned by culture to give only soft nos, the picture gets even more damning. Anyone who wants to have sex has the responsibility to make sure the consent is enthusiastic, and arguing that men might not pick up on a soft no is no longer an excuse. They have no problems picking up on soft nos from other men, but women are suddenly so difficult? That is rape culture in practice.

I didn't read past the first rape apologist example in the sub-thread op, don't have the patience to anymore.
