“A man saved me from drowning, but now I am suing him for rape because he touched me”.

These are the no-nonsense words of the hysterically cold Cassidy Boon, a US comedian who never slips up or laughs at her own jokes. Recently, Cassidy set the web on fire with a string of bizarre satirical videos and articles in which she coined the hashtag #SaveRape.

#SaveRape, or so it goes, is when a man rescues a woman from a perilous situation without asking her consent, touching her in the process, and thereby committing an act of rape. Cassidy claims to have been SaveRaped after drowning in the sea last year.

“I was disgusted at this hairy man having felt it appropriate to touch my body like that. To grab me forcefully and pull me in what ever direction HE wanted to go.

He took control of my body down there in the cold water, when I was unconscious and unable to look out for myself, he touched my all-but-bikini bare body when I was KNOCKED out and unable to struggle. 

Him, being a white man, felt he had the right to possess my milky body – to put his rough hands on my innocent flesh and command my body to come with him to the surface.

I did NOT give him consent, in fact I was UNABLE to give consent and yet he grabbed me around my waist and gripped my hand and pressed my body against his like we he wanted to engage in aquatic sex.”
