My teacher brought it up in psych class. I'm genuinely concerned I tried looking it because I'm highly concerned. Are there other factors. Someone explain and help

I think it more has to do with the comment you made sounding judgemental towards women who struggle with this. For a lot (probably most) of them these fantasies stem from some kind of trauma. You can recognize the fantasy isn’t mentally healthy and shouldn’t be acted out and that you need trauma to deal with the source of it, but still struggle with having the fantasy. I don’t think the women with this fantasy (who are fantasizing about being raped) are actually thinking rape is okay, they’re traumatized. The real issue lies in the normalization of enacting the fantasy rather than treating it as what it is - a manifestation of trauma.

I get that, but some women who are into this shit have never been abused by anyone and still they promote and defend it, and they encourage men to "fake" rape them in real life.

Anyone who has been sexually abused has my sympathy, and I don't think most women on Ovarit will defend these practices. But I also find it traumatizing. I have seriously considered both suicide and transition due to the fact that men think women just love rape. It's highly, highly triggering to me and more than anything else, it makes me want to dissociate from being female. I shouldn't be downvoted for that.
