The duality of feminism

What if you could properly punish a person for lying about being raped?

Oh, you have no idea how much fun I had with this story. It was a story that was begging to be told and I can’t tell you how much darker I originally wanted the story to be. Oh, wait…I can actually. I wanted there to be a public execution but thought that was too much for the point that I was trying to convey to my audience. I was riding high on the #METOO movement and cheering with the real feminist that made it possible for all those terrible human beings to be put behind bars. Alas, we still have a long way to go. You know…one step forward, two steps back. Don’t know what I’m talking about? Well…

Think about this for a second. How many times have you read in the paper about a man being found innocent after a woman comes clean about her lie? Better yet, how many different types of justifications have you heard come from said woman’s mouth? Rape, sexual assault, and all others of that nature are already heinous crimes without it being a lie. But to use it as a weapon to get back at someone who you claimed has wronged you is beyond reprehensible. And what’s baffling to me is that they’re seldom punished for it. Not by the law, anyway. So, I decided to do just that with my usual flair of cracking things up to an eleven.

For the story itself, the idea was straightforward. A lie that was uncovered and began to affect all parties involved with the liar. The only twist to it all is that I wanted there to be an emotional connection to the liar and a sense of duty and urgency to putting it all to rest. This brought me to create a separate entity that is intimidating and frightful to create that said urgency.  And, to make it better for me, I created the entity from the ground up like I did everything else. I think I might use them for another story in the future. It wouldn’t hurt; they are pretty terrifying for a neutral party.

I also wanted to draw some historical moments regarding lying women. Two specifically, actually. One was regarding the Scottsboro Boys (click here) and another about Brian Banks (click here). Both of them I had to do heavy research for which, again, my favorite part of the writer. I actually bought the movie because there were too many articles to read (click here to buy). I also watched the PBS document on the Scottsboro Boys and it was truly heartbreaking as well as eye-opening.

Using the knowledge from the two, I knew I wanted the main character to be an African American woman who is sick and tired of fake feminist and entitled girls. She is beyond wise and has very little tolerance for bullshit. Actually, I based her off on my best friend who also graced the cover page. And she did such a good job doing the cover that I got to thinking…I need to make a series off of her. ASAP!! Yes, she was just that good and, with that, I hope you enjoy the story.
