Seriously curious - not trolling

(Anonymous) 2016-11-29 12:33 pm (UTC)(link)
I want to know what's the sentiment behind the worst thing happening to characters having to be rape. I know it has to do with violation and losing power, etc., but for a trash meme it seems that everyone steers toward sexual violence as the worst that could happen to a character. There doesn't seem to be a lot of variety here and all the prompts are various flavors of gang-banging, etc.

My second question is why most vehemently defend the HTP as not fetishsizing rape, when almost all of the rape prompts are met with applause and people drooling and openly stating that they want it? Why not simply admit it's a kink? Even if it's as a coping mechanism, just admit you enjoy characters being put through trauma. It's a harmless kink and the only harm done is by people unwittingly reading it, which hardly ever happens since there's tagging. Do some not want to admit it's a kink because they feel it makes them dirty? Why not embrace your rape fetish?

Please don't take this as an attack. I'm really curious as to why this is the general theme among people that enjoy HTP.

Words like kink and fetish implies it is sexual, that I get something sexual out of it. I really, really do not, so I have nothing to admit or embrace, and rather resent the implication that I should. It is not a sexual thing for everyone.

Often the reasons for why people think rape is the absolute worst tends to be pretty personal in nature.

The general theme of htp IS non-con. If you read the rules/top level posts or the fanlore page, you can see the basic idea of it was based on this. I personally enjoy some of the non-sexual stuff, but I have to admit it's an offshoot of the original idea. That's why it makes up the minority of prompts.

As for your second question, I don't really see people acting the way you're saying (i.e. denying it's a kink). Also, whether the prompts are about rape or something else wouldn't define whether people have a kink.

I for one am completely comfortable with saying that rape fantasy, and fantasies about powerlessness in general, are sexual kinks of mine. I'd say so are most people I know personally in this fandom.

From what I've seen though, whenever someone accuses us of "fetishising rape" they collapse the distinction between fantasy and reality to give their argument more emotive power, claiming we're getting off on the real trauma of rape survivors. We're not. We're getting off on fantasies. I've been raped twice and I can promise you I didn't enjoy it. When I argue that I'm not fetishising rape, I mean that ACTUAL rape is not something that gets me off.

(I also personally wouldn't say I have a "fetish" for fantasies about powerlessness because the term "fetish" often entails connotations of pathology. Occasionally getting off on rape fantasies does not cause me any psychological distress, or negatively affect my relatively vanilla sex life.)

As for the first question, I'm not sure I accept your premise that most people here believe sexual violence is the worst thing to happen to a character. As a couple of others have said, we focus on sexual violence here because that was the context in which the community was originally created: the idea of Party Favour Winter Soldier, being passed around among Hydra goons at Hydra Trash Parties for sexual exploitation. It's expanded a bit to include other kinds of dehumanisation and violation, but sexual violence was always the trashy core we built ourselves around.

for a trash meme it seems that everyone steers toward sexual violence

This meme was established as a space for fic about "violent sex and sexy violence" -- I don't know why you'd think the focus on rape here is out of place. That’s like going to a steakhouse and being confused as to why everybody’s eating beef. You’re right, there’s not a lot of salmon on the menu … because it’s a restaurant that specializes in steak. It says so right on the door.

Why not embrace your rape fetish?

Publicly? It's an anon meme because, as I'm sure you've noticed, some people in fandom act like assholes when other people like things that they themselves do not like. I manage to keep my seething contempt for Coffee Shop AUs under wraps because I'm polite and have good impulse control. I recognize that my complete lack of interest in that genre is irrelevant to everybody who isn't me, that random strangers are not interested in the many ways in which I think Coffee Shop AUs are harmful corporatist bullshit that spoon-feed pablum to the masses in the name of ~relatability, that they completely ignore the characterizations of canon in order to generate another paint-by-numbers romantic comedy that lacks both romance and comedy. However, many other people on Tumblr are not interested in civility and, when confronted with people who like things that they don’t like, instead choose to act like complete fuckheads. It doesn’t take a genius to realize that waving a red flag in front of an asshole who’s demonstrated that they don’t give a shit about other people isn’t a constructive move.

There doesn't seem to be a lot of variety here

Do you even go here? I could say exactly the same thing about 99% of the Steve/Bucky fic I see on AO3. It’s all the same derivative crap. Back to the steakhouse metaphor: just because your palate can’t differentiate between a porterhouse, a flank steak, a striploin, or a T-bone doesn’t mean that the rest of us aren’t enjoying a wide variety of satisfying meals.

Why not simply admit it's a kink?

Where are you seeing people who say that reading and writing fictional stories about non-consensual sex is *not* a kink? That comes from the critics who want this entire genre, and all of the people in it, to disappear — it doesn’t come from the authors themselves. Rape and rape recovery are very commonly-written narrative tropes across many, many fandoms, and have been for as long as fanfic has existed -- including way back in the day when it was printed on physical paper and mailed to your house (see: Kirk/Spock) — because rape kink has been a thing for a very, very long time. There’s rape kink in the Christian Bible, for fuck’s sake. HTP did not invent darkfic or rapefic, nor did it somehow magically popularize it beyond its prior existing popularity. You'll find rape and rape recovery very obviously listed on Fanlore here: https://fanlore.org/wiki/List_of_Fan-fiction_Kinks,_Tropes,_and_Clich%C3%A9s and in every other fan space that discusses the history of fandom. I'd write more, but I don't see the point, as it's been thoroughly covered in this post: http://whatisthehydratrashparty.tumblr.com/why

"Even if it's as a coping mechanism, just admit you enjoy characters being put through trauma."

Yes, I do, and so does pretty much everybody else here on this meme -- just like everybody who enjoys reading hurt/comfort, or angst, or pining, or recovery, or pretty much any other genres of fic apart from short, plotless AU fluff. The fact that I enjoy reading stories where some of that trauma is of a sexual nature is because, in the world I live in, *very often* I encounter trauma that is of a sexual nature. Fiction reflects reality. Why would I avoid writing about ideas that examine, dissect, explore, and discuss themes that have so much real-world relevance to me?

"the worst thing happening to characters having to be rape"

Is it, though? Is that what you see when you read HTP fics, that the only bad thing, or the worst bad thing, that happens to them is rape? Because what I see is very often, the worst thing that happens to characters is the thing *leading up to* their rape -- their betrayal by other characters, their dehumanization, their exploitation, their imprisonment, their torture, the callous cruelty with which they're treated. Sexual violence is both the outcome of, and only one facet of, all the different kinds of violence that are visited upon characters here.

*sniff sniff* Mmm, gotta love the smell of bait in the morning. Found anything that'll look bad out of context yet, or are you gonna keep fishing?

But while we're doing straight-faced, earnest questions about each other's deep psychological motivations for activities the asker can barely conceal their contempt for: why do you assume that a focus on sexual violence means we all think it's the worst thing that could happen to a character?

And why have you dichotomized the issue of kink to the point of reading the numerous, impassioned testaments to what people get out of HTP besides kink as denials that there is a kink component? Not for everyone, as several nonnies have stated above, but hey guess what: it's possible to get valuable insights or reassurance or catharsis or whatever out of something that also gets you off. It's even possible to get off on something that helps you work through your rape trauma. I've seen antis so fundamentally unable to wrap their heads around the "both at once" concept that they tried to use "you've admitted to getting off to rape fantasies" as a refutation of "this has been an integral part of my healing process." Or at the very least read "this has been an integral part of my healing process" as "my interest in it is Pure and untouched by sexual gratification," and thus something that could be refuted by the exact type of admission of sexual gratification you're fishing for here.

And I'm genuinely curious--why? Why have all the responses to the constant accusations of "you're only into it to jack off" registered to you as denials that any jacking off is involved at all? Since you're making an effort to tamp down your rhetoric, convince us you're not a troll, and even pay lip service to the ideas about kink/harm/tagging/etc that you then try to undermine with leading questions, I'm going to assume that this is a genuine psychological blind spot rather than a deliberate "have you stopped beating your wife?" type question. So what's up with that? Is it about sexuality being incompatible with serious issues, and cheapening anything it touches into mere fetishization, even the fallout from the intersection between sexuality and violence? A need to separate "people who respect the seriousness of this subject" from "people who treat it in a way I find disrespectful and distasteful," to the point that anyone claiming a legitimate seat at the table in Group #1 sounds like they're implicitly denying any activities that'd qualify them for Group #2? Why are you so interested in whether we feel dirty for enjoying something you can barely conceal your distaste for, and in the course of trying to suss out the problematic motivations for our problematic kinks, did it occur to you to examine your own thinking for internalized Madonna-whore issues?

Just curious. While we're having a civilized conversation and all.

Given how much trolling we get here, OP, it would do a lot for your credibility if you were willing to approach us under your own name. For all we know, with the way your questions are phrased, you could easily be one of our regular bullies looking to stir up wank here now that everyone has blocked you on tumblr. Personally, every time I've had someone approach me claiming to want to better understand, it's gone sour faster than you could say 'bad faith'.

In the meantime, a couple of things that might help you better come to grips with what we do here:

1) The Hydra Trash Meme is not a unique place. Fandom kink memes have been around in this exact format for ages, and almost without exception they centre around sex and kink. If you can understand that huge numbers of people enjoy taboo, shocking, 'naughty' sexual fantasies - and that a lot of fandom infrastructure exists to let fans indulge those fantasies - then you're already most of the way to understanding the HTP.

2) If I want violence, I can turn on the TV. If I want to watch Bucky get non-sexually tortured, I can literally just play The Winter Soldier on my blu-ray and skip forward to the bank scene. Sex is generally far more taboo than violence in modern Western culture, and the places where violent sex is portrayed (notably mainstream men's pornography) tend to be the kind of creepy I don't enjoy. I'd rather make my own space with like-minded people - and a lot of others felt the same, and so this meme came into being.

I hope that helps.

I don't have a rape fetish. I like hurt/comfort. I empathise with fictional victims of abuse because I myself have experienced abuse, and I feel good when reading descriptions of my favourite characters healing physically and emotionally from the trauma they experienced.

“Not fetishizing rape” as it’s described in HTP means that when rape occurs in works posted here it is clearly acknowledged/labelled as rape, e.g. “non-consensual sex”.

This is done in order to contrast HTP works with things like 50 Shades of Grey, any of a thousand “bodice-ripper” novels for sale on the drugstore paperback bookshelf, Twilight, and other works that do *not* show clearly in the narrative of the work, or through clear labelling/warnings, that the relationships and sexual contact they describe are non-consensual (or at least of dubious consent, or having serious consent issues that are not discussed or acknowledged in the text).

You seem to be confusing the rule of “not fetishizing rape” in its specific form here on the meme, with the idea that that means people on meme aren’t interested in (or won’t “admit”, to use your words) rape fantasies as a sexual kink. Those are two different ideas, even though they both use the word “fetish” in them.

Maybe it's not the same thing for different people?

I'm one of the ones who does ave a rape kink, but even I don't read all the stories here for sexual gratification. I'm heavily into the recover factor as well. I can only describe it as being similar to going into a rollercoaster, screaming because you're scared, then getting the elief of being safe. It does things to your brain.

I think sexual violence is very visceral (but I in fact enjoy non-sexual violence too, and pre-htp I basically enjoyed post-torture fics).

Re: Seriously curious - not trolling

(Anonymous) 2016-12-04 10:02 pm (UTC)(link)
I can't honestly say the sexual aspect doesn't do anything for me, but that's far from the main reason I'm here. I mean, sure, I get off to rape fantasies occasionally, but I'm here for the emotional aspect. The part of this meme that I love is the way a character slowly breaks down (or doesn't) under duress until they're a shadow of what they were before. The way uncertainty and self-loathing worms its way into their heads and the defense mechanisms they try to find to hold on. The way even after it's over they're still broken and they know things won't be the same, and the horror of that inevitability and trying to cope with it. I love this in fiction because it's a concentrated dose of what I find myself going through in real life. It helps me cope, and it comforts me. And I'll take it any way I can get it, including sexual violence.

Honestly, it's easier to get hold of stories about rape than about torture or slavery or other kinds of human rights violations. A few years ago I tried to avoid rape stories entirely (I was also underage a few years ago so there's that) but I eventually realized the only consistent way to get my "break a character down and watch them suffer" fix was to read stories about rape.

Also, I don't know if the idea is that rape is the worst thing that can happen to a person so much as that it's a separate kind of terrible. Because it takes something that is supposed to be pleasurable and uses it against the victim, something that's supposed to be intimate and, since it's not done with someone the victim trusts or wants to be close with, violates that intimacy. (That's just my understanding of it; I've never been raped but I've been sexually harassed and that was the aspect of it that was most terrible for me.) It's not so much that rape is in necessity worse than death/dismemberment/torture, but whereas those take something already terrible and heap it on, rape takes something that's supposed to be nice and makes it terrible.

TLDR; for me it's more the emotional horror rather than the sexual aspect; if I could find non-sexual violence fics in either the number or quality that I find sexual violence fics I would be reading those in addition to or instead of the latter, if I could find an audience I would definitely be writing them instead (I've actually never had sex do you even understand how hard it is to write sex when you've never had it), and sexual violence is in a different category of violence from other kinds of violence.

Favorite Trash Tropes?

(Anonymous) 2016-12-13 12:52 am (UTC)(link)
I know this topic comes up periodically, but I always enjoy reading people's answers, and I know there are more people around than have answered in the past, along with new people! So, trash denizens, what are some of your favorite trash tropes? I'll start.

I really like exploring dehumanization through things like Bucky being called "it" while with Hydra, or Hydra operatives nonchalantly ordering him to do horrible things while otherwise ignoring him. Just the casual little things that say so much in very few words.

On the other hand, I also love touch-starved Bucky who turns into a fawning puppy as soon as someone appears to be nice to him.

Re: Favorite Trash Tropes?

(Anonymous) 2016-12-13 06:36 pm (UTC)(link)
There are stories for my heart and stories for my... other parts.

My heart likes fic that deals with all kinds of self hatred, shame, touch starvedness and the like. Also people thinking horrible things will happen / deserve to happen to them and then they don't. Sappy h/c is a-okay, too.

My other interests include size kink, hole torture, humiliation and shameboners.

Dogshaming

Hi everyone! I've fallen into the dumpster badly and I cannot get out... Before I fell in though, I started on a Winter Soldier cosplay (the codename for the project is SovietMurderBarbie actually, haha). It's due to make its first appearance March 25th at the Dutch Comic Con. I came across this prompt for dogshaming WS, and I wondered if you guys would appreciate if I did a series of dogshaming pics in my cosplay, mhaha.

I'm not too sure how I'd do em in a way that it suggests Winter but doesn't make it too obvious that I am no Sebastian Stan lookalike. I have the muzzle, so that's something... Or maybe someone could throw on a filter in photoshop or something? So, I guess this is an offer... and a prompt, gimme all the dogshaming goodness you'd like to see!

A very cracky strange thing I wrote after a day of cosplay fun at the Comic Con!




Mission report March 25, 2017.
Mission Objective: Fun at Comic Con.
Filed by: The Asset, mission designation “Soviet Murder Barbie” and "TheAwfulDodger".


This Asset boarded a train in the east at 10.30 hours with the Handler; designation “Little Brother”. When they had to make a stop to change trains, Handler “Little Brother” bought this Asset coffee and a cookie. It was hot and had foam on top. The Asset was undercover as a civilian at this time, and initiated skillset “Small Talk” on board the second train. Asset found out that handler “Little Brother” does not know The Asset’s trigger words past Longing-Rusted-Seventeen, but can do a Russian meme impression about Chicky Bricky. This Asset thinks Commander Rumlow might have to be informed about this.


Handler ‘’Little Brother” and Asset arrived at specified location at 11.24 hours, and had to stand in line for approximately 20 minutes. Handler made good use of this time and strapped on the Asset’s weapons. At the entrance, Asset was checked over by a security... technician... and received the all-clear in the shape of a bracelet. Asset liked the bracelet, it was red and soft and had a lion on it. After Handler “Little Brother” received a bracelet, he rushed the Asset through three halls because the Asset had an appointment at 12.00 hours in the far hall. The Asset already saw a couple of almost-but-not-quite-man-from-the-bridge.


Asset was surrendered into the care of Speed dating Technicians at 12.00 hours. The technician clipped a numbered tag to Asset’s gear, Asset was #23. After this, The Asset was lead into a white room with many people and many chairs, and was ordered to sit in chair #23. A very confusing 90 minutes followed. The Asset does not know this “speed-dating” thing and does have an answer to questions like “Marvel or DC?”. The Asset is also not a Hufflepuff and does not want to be an aminal because it is already a weapon and a weapon is more useful to shape the future than an animal.


After 90 very confusing minutes of ticking boxes, the Asset was released from the care of the Speed dating Technicians, and was picked up by a new Handler (designation “Helen”, best friend). Handler Helen had her husband and two little Superheroes with her. The tiniest Superhero looked very familiar and clung to the Asset in a way that felt very familiar too. The little Superhero’s blue-red-and-white gear was giving this Asset a headachy feeling. Asset dubbed this little superhero BB!Steeb.


Handler “Helen” took the Asset and the little Superheroes to another big hall filled with many people. There were quite a few Not-Quite-Steve’s there, and even another Asset. The Asset did not like this other Asset, surely that other Asset could have been left in cryo. The Asset hugged a few Not-Quite-Steve’s but none of them were the right fit.


Handler “Helen”, the superheroes and the Asset were joined by Handler designation “Kallanda”, and they went to get food. Handler “Kallanda” picked an American diner style place to eat. This Asset thought it was Capitalist garbage, but changed its opinion after it got to have real people food too. The Asset got a burger and a coke, which was pure Capitalist poison but also the tastiest thing this Asset had in 70 years. The little superheroes did not want to share the Asset’s food, which was weird, because the Asset was not supposed to have human food in the first place. Afterwards, the Asset was useful and put the trash where it belongs. The Handlers praised the Asset, which was nice.


Handler “Kallanda” took the Asset to a Very Familiar Exhibit after lunch. There was a Very Familiar Costume and Shield at the exhibit. There were also pictures of the Man On The Bridge, and someone who looked like The Asset a lot but was identified as [REDACTED]. [REDACTED] looked at the Man On The Bridge like he was the sun. The Asset wanted to touch but there was glass. It looked at its own reflection and felt very sad.


After this, The Asset did many weird and wonderful mission-related things with both Handlers. Handler “Kallanda” and Asset rode a motorbike and visited a strange place called “Rainbow Road”. Handler “kallanda” took the Asset on a mission to find a pikachu hat. Handler “Helen” bought the Asset an icecream cone, it was soft and cold and white, but sweet and nice, unlike other white things. The Asset shot the ceiling and the bullet ricoched into the icecream truck. BB!Steeb and the Asset went disco dancing in a Guardians of the Galaxy disco. The two little superheroes and the Asset met a mechanical dog at a blue box, a man with spiky hair, a striped suit and a long brown coat took pictures. The Asset liked the man’s shoes.


During the mission, The Asset and the Handlers encountered a lot of other Operatives and civilians. Some wanted to take the Asset’s picture. Some looked very familiar. Some wanted to fight the Asset. The Asset did not critically injure anyone, nor sustained damage itself. Notable amongst these were the targets named “Logan” and “Little!Falcon”.


At 18.00 hours, the handlers deemed the mission completed and succesful. Handler “Kallanda” dressed the Asset in civilian gear again. The Asset was hugged by Handler “Kallanda”. It was a good hug. Handler “Little Brother” was nowhere to be found, so the Asset was sent back to base by Handler “Kallanda” after many a ‘hail Hydra!’. The Asset travelled back to base by train in undercover mode, and arrived at the base around 20.30 hours. It was hydrated, cleaned and put into cryo with a smile on its face.




Do ace people have kinks?

I'm legit confused here, and I know it's offtopic but this is an offtopic discussion, so...

Yes, some ace people do have kinks. Being asexual just means not feeling sexual attraction towards other people; it's like being, say, a gay man in a room full of women - technically, you could have sex with these women but you don't feel sexually attracted to them and really you'd rather not. Being ace is like that, only with any and all genders.

Some ace people don't have sex at all, while others are sex-neutral (don't really see the point of sex but will do it to e.g. de-stress or make their partner(s) happy) or sex-positive (enjoy the physical feeling of sex). Sex-neutral and sex-positive aces can have kinks that make the sexual experience more enjoyable for them. Kinks are separate from attraction to people, and some kinks can be enjoyed without a partner or even without sex. So aces can and do have kinks, and this has no effect on whether they're asexual or not. :)

There is a gangrape fic featuring young Brock Rumlow somewhere on the first pages of the Dumpster #1, if I'm not mistaken.

This darkfic shall the ficcer post online;
And the dumpster tag shall ne'er be empty,
From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be remember'd;
We few, we happy few, we dumpster den'zens;
For they to-day that read the fic with me
Shall be my fam'ly; be they ne'er so vile,
This fic shall hit their kinks and int'rests:
And faint of heart in fandom now a-bed
Shall think themselves quite blessed they were not here,
And hold their triggers close whiles any speaks
That read with us the contents of the dumpster

On AO3 here: http://archiveofourown.org/works/10501485

The line "We few, we happy few, we dumpster den'zens" popped into my head, and then I just had to write the rest of this parody of the St. Crispin's Day Speech in Shakespeare's Henry V. Thought I'd post it here where it could be enjoyed by its intended audience. :-)
