Young men need to be socialized in such a way that rape is as unthinkable to them as cannibalism.

Mary Pipher, Clinical Psychologist and Author, Reviving Ophelia (via sunshine-machine)

this should have been reblogged a million times already.

(via sukedada)

And remember, they are socialized to accept rape culture as “masculinity” and “normal.” This isn’t inherent biology. So they can be socialized away from it. This quote = everything.

Victims of sexual assault expect privacy. But 16-year-old Jada was violated all over again once explicit images from her rape surfaced on Twitter. So Jada decided to take her story public.

“There’s no point in hiding,” the Houston teen tells KHOU. “Everybody has already seen my face and my body, but that’s not what I am and who I am.”

I’m sharing this because certain people on twitter  NEEDS TO BE STOP! Specially the ignorant side of black twitter! Every time something bad happen to a young black women or black girl twitter is quickly to explode it into something bigger! And Jada story is one of them! She’s a 16 yearls high school student she could be your sister,cousin, neighbor, or classmate! This tragic thing happened to her and these ignorant people on twitter looking for followers exploit this to point where the disgusting hashtag was created #jadapose. People tweeting pictures of themselves in the pose in which Jada was found! What I find even worse about this its that a lot of the people doing these poses are young black men and women. Something like this happen to someone who could possibly be your sister and instead of asking for justice you rather create a new meme? And some of them even argue “oh how do you know she got rape?” Does it matter? a picture of an underage girl laying on the floor looking like she’s passed out is not something be laughed at EVER! Like ”A rape victim’s trauma is not grounds for a new internet meme. Pls do not partake in such ignorance. Report pictures.”

I’m happy and proud of Jada for speaking and not letting this disgusting thing becoming any bigger

Which brings me to what I’m trying to ask or say here when will sexual assault towards black girls and young black women will be taking serious by young black people?

i truly don’t understand what kind of world we live in.

This is absolutely horrific and abhorrent. Look at how few notes this has. Now watch as the so-called feminists and defenders of women on this site stay silent. The black woman’s body has no value to this society except for how it can be exploited and dehumanized. This is straight up misogynoir. This is an egregious act. This shows how sick our culture is. Rape culture is so pervasive and normalized that many will see nothing wrong with this new meme, much like as was the case with ‘Trayvoning’ (though that was white and non-Black POC racialized violence). This is also why I stay off of twitter.

GAY PRIDE™ IS…

commiepinkofag:

Gay Pride™ is subordination to the State and Empire. 
Gay Pride™ is homage to capitalism, patriarchy, and white supremacy. 
Gay Pride™ is co‐optation of queer radicalism by liberals, Democrats, academics, hipsters, and NGOs. 
Gay Pride™ is the eradication of trans bodies and narratives, and queer militancies. 
Gay Pride™ is gala events for the elite. 
Gay Pride™ is walking past homeless queer youth. 
Gay Pride™ is assimilation into straight society. 
Gay Pride™ is corporate. 
Gay Pride™ is destruction of queer histories of mutual‐aid, resistance, shame, promiscuity, creativity, humor, love, community, brutality, poverty, and disease. 
Gay Pride™ is “we’re just like you”. 
Gay Pride™ is safe, privileged, accommodationist, vanilla, temporary, and very boring. 
Gay Pride™ is to ignore trans women of color being beat by police and murdered by street bigots. 
Gay Pride™ is to achieve equality and sameness, to settle and be conditional, to compromise. Nothing more. Always less. 
Gay Pride™ is forgetting about those affected by HIV/AIDS. 
Gay Pride™ is “straight‐acting”, “masc only”, “promise I’m not that gay tho”, “sry no effeminate guys”, “not into Asians”, “prefer white guys”, “no fatties or trannies”. 
Gay Pride™ is gender binary. 
Gay Pride™ is on the sidewalk, obeying the police when they say the party is over. 
Gay Pride™ is neglecting all of the queer and trans prisoners held captive by the State. 
Gay Pride™ is marriage and military. 
Gay Pride™ is poor people of color being pushed out of their neighborhoods by a white gay gentry. 
Gay Pride™ is refusing to avenge religious fundamentalists who cause young queers to commit suicide. 
Gay Pride™ is “things aren’t that bad in Russia.” 
Gay Pride™ is being able to participate in the military‐industrial complex, kill and rape people in other countries in the name of “freedom”, yet be fired from a minimum wagejob in the US because of your sexuality and/or gender identity. 
Gay Pride™ is giving a shit about corporate media and entertainment. 
Gay Pride™ is pretending electoral politics will bring about social change. 
Gay Pride™ is a rearranging of the existing social order only to accommodate a few, as opposed to collective liberation and dismantling of oppressive systems. 
Gay Pride™ is nationalism. 
Gay Pride™ is to water down and tranquilize ‐ to make “normal”. 
Gay Pride™ is men and women who arm themselves to kill people who are deemed criminals, deviants, and terrorists by the State. 
Gay Pride™ is business casual or muscle tees. 
Gay Pride™ is the invisibilization of people of color. 
Gay Pride™ is to dismiss queer Palestinians being murdered by the Israeli apartheid state. 
Gay Pride™ is gay men being misogynist pigs and committing verbal, physical, and sexual violence against women and it being “okay” since they’re gay. 
Gay Pride™ is obscuring histories of Western colonialism and silencing Indigenous voices. 
Gay Pride™ is “speak English or go back to your country”.
Gay Pride™ is a mythology and an opiate.

disabledgirlism:

it’s pretty common for people discussing rape culture within feminist discourse to conveniently leave out disabled girls, but this is just a casual reminder that disabled women are far more likely to be sexually assaulted, abused or raped than able-bodied women. on top of that, 50% of deaf girls and 54% of deaf boys have been sexually abused or assaulted. so please stop leaving us out of your discussion about rape culture.

NOT SO FUN FACT

hairypitsandtits:

puta-bacan:

As recently as 1991, police in a southern California community closed all rape reports made by prostitutes and addicts, placing them in a file stamped “NHI.” The letters stand for the words “No Human Involved.” (Linda Fairstein, Sexual Violence: Our War Against Rape, 1993, New York, William Morrow.)

Things I forget outside of tumblr.

jayjsupremacy:

  • Most people are straight.
  • Nobody knows what “cis”/”cisgender” is.
  • Sexism/Misogyny is a joke.
  • If one black person does bad or “bad” thing all black people are judged for it.
  • Racism isnt a big deal unless the victim dies and if they do then they probably did something to deserve it because 2 sides to every story!!1 rite??
  • Criticizing/reacting to racism is just as bad as racism.
  • There are people more concerned with weed and guns than whether or not all humans receive the same basic freedoms.
  • Transgender people are murdered for existing. 
  • People legitimately believe rape can be the victim’s fault. 
  • What women can do with their bodies is actually a debatable topic.
  • Separation of Church & State literally does not matter. At all. 
  • I’m not allowed to mention anything on this list without “overreacting.”

ok no. the only folks who “forget” shit like this goes on are folks who don’t have to deal with it in the first place.

He admitted to it. On fucking camera. He and another boy recorded the rape and that of a 13-year-old girl.
Why aren’t they in prison for sexual exploitation of a minor and production/possession of child pornography?
Oh, right, because they’re popular football players and Matthew Barnett is related to a politician! Therefore, nothing they can do is wrong or bad and they should never face punishment and should instead be rewarded for raping young teenage girls and filming their assaults.

I just looked this up; it gets worse.

raise awareness to this shit and change something about it.

False rape accusations are an anomaly.

True rape accusations are a norm.

You’re, quite literally, more likely to be killed by a comet than falsely accused of rape.

I don’t even care about credit I just want people to stop saying this shit plz repost this if it will get people to stop sexualizing us

Just a few references on this extremely unfortunate subject:
Infographic from BiRadical: "Did you know?” Nearly HALF of all bisexual women are survivors of rape. By contrast, 13% of lesbians and 17% of straight women are rape survivors.”
BiNet USA: “2013 Bisexual Fact Sheet”
Blog posts by EvenAud (no off switch):
“Drown Them in a Sea of Noise Part 1: Bisexuality, and My Rape”
“Gasping for Air: Biphobia, Suicide and Me.”

Slut Shaming particularly of Feminine/Female-Presenting Bisexual People, based on their (presumed or actual) Dating + Relationship History is a form of Identity Policing. It is Biphobic/Sapphobic and frequently Transphobic and Misogynistic too.Being bisexual is just a thing that some people are, no different or more meaningful than being tall or short. However being a nosy, ignorant, insecure, jealous, mean-spirited, inconsiderate and unsympathetic bigot are negative character traits that most normal people work hard to avoid. Something to Strongly Consider if you or someone you know thinks making "jokes" like this about bisexual people is ok.

Educate yourselves and the people around you. Take rape seriously. Listen to people. I think a big part of why rape culture even exists is because slut shaming exists. Don’t take part in either one.
