When society thinks of rape, it imagines a stranger with a gun in a dark alley. In most cases though, it couldn't be farther from the truth.
Also, following proper English grammar says nothing about literacy. Maybe we should all stop criticizing the text and pick up the book and read it first.
I'm pretty sure Mark Twain's novels are a pretty apt analogy in this situation. (Not the quality of the content, but in the sense that the dialect/writing format it is written in should not directly affect what we think of the work.)
But regardless, what feminists ask is that those who are white, cisgendered, straight, educated, able-bodied, etc. etc. is that we constantly check our privilege. Being the "normal" has EXTREME privileges that we can't even begin to understand completely, since we have never fully experienced the barriers that other groups of people have.
It's not easy bein' green.
