I like a lot of things, I reblog a lot of random stuff. I've been re-blogging a lot of bunnies. Not really sorry for that. I don't tolerate Xander Hate, Xander Harris is my King. I have this habit of writing epic fics instead of pretty one shots. Ugh. Um...I think everyone should watch Big Wolf on Campus at least once. o^^o

Yeah, the only time this particular incident is ever mentioned again is by Xander in a brief moment of panic when Impata seems too perfect to be real and he asks her if she’s a preying mantis.  And by Buffy when she says:  “You and bug people Xander, what’s up with that?”  It never occurred to anyone that Xander was almost assaulted, not just eaten.

Well we could talk about the patriarchy and the idea that men get attacked it’s funny, or at least not treated with the same severity as if it was a woman. In many tv shows there is 1 character usually a guy (Nick Stokes, Tony Dinozzo, the list goes on) who gets beat up and bashed and even if it isn’t played up for comedic affect if it is ever addressed again it is rarely shown to be a big deal (I will give CSI points for Nick yes they seemed to have forgotten he was sexually assaulted as a child and had a guy stalk him from his own home, but they did some good stuff with the aftermath of him being buried alive and the fears associated with that). I have issues with shows just hurting the same character over and over and over again.

Ugh, I hate it when any character is traumatized and then its glossed over and forgotten about.

I agree, I do like how CSI handled some of the things that happened to Nick…and after that lab explosion it took a while for Greg’s hands to stop shaking.  But after Greg was beaten by that mob…I don’t remember him having any flash backs or being jumpy in the field afterward (granted its been a while since I’ve seen those eps).

I just wish that people would get it through their heads that ANY person can be hurt or assaulted and it just doesn’t go away and its certainly nothing to laugh at.

And, thank you for discussing something so serious with me.  But I’m gonna have to go sleep now, its after midnight.

*hugs*

Night!
