"It's hard to believe that the fear of offending can be stronger than the fear of pain"

A quote from The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, when the serial rapist/murderer is discussing how he lures his victims to his place. He relies on that fear.

I was just telling another woman on a dating thread how dangerous a guy is who doesn't ask for consent but puts the onus on the woman to stop his actions. He relies on the fear of offending to get sex.

So ladies, fuck that fear....
