my first “Mr.” in the mail. feels good.
“forcefully had sex”
Ugh, fuck that sugar-coated language. Nobody will call it rape because it’s Elvis Presley, but…it’s rape. According to this, Elvis was a rapist. Cope however you fucking want in hearing this, but don’t sugar-coat what happened.
Because in initiating sex with someone, no force should be used. I don’t mean the actual sexual practices, but initiating it. Getting consent. if they meant they had rough sex, the wording would have reflected that no problem. There also isn’t any “force” used in rough sex either, if it’s consensual. But “forcefully had sex” is clearly weasel language.
One time this woman in a bar called him a “son of a bitch,” so he threw a pool cue at her and damaged her breast, she had to go to the hospital and have surgery to repair it.
This book is where I get my information. It’s been many years since I read it, I don’t remember all the shitty details, but I remember that one.
In addition to being sexist, he was racist and homophobic as well.
Priscilla’s autobiography is probably where the most of that wikipedia section comes from. And yes, he did rape her. She makes that very clear. (Read that one too, those years ago, while I was an Elvis fan. These two books managed to cure me of that.)
Also Priscilla was very young when she met him. I forget…14, I see, wikipedia has listed.
