Hey Best Friends!WARNING
I'm sorry if this is too heavy and triggers some people, that is not
my intention. My intention is to have an open and honest dialogue about your opinion of Sexual Assault in comics specifically, but other forms of media as well.
That being said, how do you feel about it? What are examples of it being used appropriately and inappropriately? I ask because I am currently writing my first comic and the protagonist experiences being raped. I don't want to give away much else about the story right now, but her experience and what comes of it play into the world that I've built and it's a major part of her character development. Also, I don't think this is a topic (in my opinion) that is explored in comics (or other forms of media) often enough and it's a major problem in our society.
Again, I apologize if this is too sensitive of a topic for some, but please feel free to share your feelings because it will really help me express this part of the protagonist's story in, hopefully, a respectful and appropriate way. I respect this community's openness and knowledge of comics so I thought that this would be the right place to have this conversation - correct me if I'm wrong.
