While I can understand the OPs frustrations with having such a harsh accusation being made about their ship, I also see the merit (or foregone conclusion) to the idea that Captain Swan or Hook can promote rape culture. The issue lies in the fact that it is all up to interpretation. However, instead of blind accusations, I am going to choose to educate. I will provide the defintion of ‘rape culture’ and then place it alongside Captain Hook/Captain Swan scenes. Again, this is not prove that rape culture is occurring, merely showing how it can be interpreted as such.
From: Transforming Rape Culture by Emilie Buchwald 

A rape culture is a complex of beliefs that encourages male sexual aggression and supports violence against women. It is a society where violence is seen as sexy and sexuality as violent. In a rape culture, women perceive a continuum of threatened violence that ranges from sexual remarks to sexual touching to rape itself. A rape culture condones physical and emotional terrorism against women as the norm.In a rape culture both men and women assume that sexual violence is a fact of life, inevitable as death or taxes. This violence, however, is neither biologically nor divinely ordained. Much of what we accept as inevitable is in fact the expression of values and attitudes that can change.

Encourages male sexual aggression and supports violence against women.

Remember, Emma thought Hook was a stranger in this scene. This is a man - who kissed her without her wanting him to - telling Emma drink a strange liquid without any knowledge of what’s inside it. We are taught, as women, not to take drinks from strange men because of what might have been put in them. I understand Hook would never give Emma date rape drugs, but the perception of this scene within its context can be disturbing. 

Much of what we accept as inevitable is in fact the expression of values and attitudes that can change.
While people have made a case for Hook’s ‘redemption arc’ by saying he is not the man he used to be, I personally see his “change” is for less than honorable reasons.


It comes from what can be interpreted as over possessive behavior and not fierce loyalty to the woman he loves.

So, is it stupid or ignorant to think that the idea of rape culture is depicted? No. Do I think the phrase has the capacity to be thrown around by ignorant people? Yes. On the other hand, ignoring it is not the answer. This is a problem, and it is not being addressed.

BAM .


This is the fans’ conclusion to the top three most argued parings:
CaptainSwan: Rape Culture
Rumbelle: Stockholm Syndrome
Swanfire: Statutory Rape
Can people see a pattern here? Can’t we just respect everyone’s opinion to like whatever. Aren’t you people tired of fighting?

Rumbelle: Not Stockholm Syndrome. Belle was not a captive and Rumple didn’t use his authority over her to make her conform to his ideals.
Swanfire: Age is impossible to gauge for Neal because all of the information on his wanted poster was a lie, we’re not sure Henry was conceived in Oregon, and there is absolutely no imbalance of power between Neal and Emma in any of their scenes together.
Captain Swan: See post above. It is a problematic ship with a fuckton of problematic behavior from Hook. The abusive language, stalking, and over all misogyny from Hook can be backed up with evidence. That’s the difference.

Yes I know that’s the difference. I agree with everything you said. My point was about the constant fighting and insulting each other over this. I guess it will always continue.

I have a set of rules that I keep in regards to CS. I don’t go into the tags, I don’t send hate, and I tag my anti-posts for my CS followers. But I’m not going to ignore the problematic aspects of the ship or voicing my displeasure about it. I don’t think that makes me a BA, the poor storytelling just makes me bitter. Emma was such a positive feminist role model and it’s a shame that they’ve put her in this unhealthy ship for the sake of the physical attractiveness of the actors.

The thing I think people don’t understand is that it’s not ‘I hate Hook and therefore I’m going to accuse him of bullying and representing rape culture’  It’s ‘Hook creeps me out because he’s a bully and represents rape culture and that’s why I hate him.  It’s not trying to justify the hate, it’s the cause.  And we’ve been talking about this since long before CS became canon.

This would be funny if Charming and Snow hadn’t saved Regina’s life at a great personal costs just a few days earlier.

Not to mention that one of ‘the two idiots’ is Snow.  Who thought of Regina as a mother for 8 years.  Who couldn’t let Regina be executed no matter how many hundreds of people she’d murdered because she still believed that Regina had the potential to be a good person.  Snow, who was orphaned first by Cora killing her mother, than Regina having her father killed, and still loved Regina and was shocked that Regina wanted her dead.  Snow, who honestly thought that Regina was family.  Who would let a man kill her if it meant that Regina could finally be at peace and that her kingdom would be safe, because Regina’s been murdering innocent people to get to Snow.  And still she doesn’t want harm to come to Regina.

But Regina can dismiss that all, and just refer to Snow, who has saved her life multiple times even after Regina has killed or tried to kill most of her family, as an ‘idiot.’
