Tumblr, teaching more about rape culture than they do in school

(via misandry-mermaid)



Remember this rape culture Kickstarter debacle? Today Kickstarter has issued a formal apology, started an internal review of their policies, and is donating $25,000 to RAINN (Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network). This is a prime example of an apology done right. From their blog:



As an experiment for my Religious Education class, reblog this if you think a woman should be able to have an abortion if she wants to.

"If you have the privilege to view rape as such an abstract concept that it could be funny to you, then good for fucking you. Not all of us are so lucky, and we’re sure as hell not laughing."

Respecting a survivor’s sense of self is really the biggest thing- and as always, Support and Affirm Worth.

I hope you guys are having a fabulous Wednesday, and as always, take care of yourselves <3

Please, please read, comprehend, and never forget this. It could drastically change how a survivor lives the rest of their life after an attack. It could also be the line between being an asshole and a true support system for someone.

"It’s been over a century since the birth of the suffragette movement and boys are still not being brought up to believe that women are their equals. Instead we have a whole new battleground opening up online where boys can attack, humiliate, belittle us and do everything in their power to destroy our confidence before we even leave high school."


What happened when I started a feminist society at school

"If owning a gun and knowing how to use it worked, the military would be the safest place for a woman. It’s not.

If women covering up their bodies worked, Afghanistan would have a lower rate of sexual assault than Polynesia. It doesn’t.

If not drinking alcohol worked, children would not be raped. They are.

If your advice to a woman to avoid rape is to be the most modestly dressed, soberest and first to go home, you may as well add “so the rapist will choose someone else”.

If your response to hearing a woman has been raped is “she didn’t have to go to that bar/nightclub/party” you are saying that you want bars, nightclubs and parties to have no women in them. Unless you want the women to show up, but wear kaftans and drink orange juice. Good luck selling either of those options to your friends.

Or you could just be honest and say that you don’t want less rape, you want (even) less prosecution of rapists."
