We dare you to say we don’t live in a rape culture.

Amazingly, not The Onion:

“[W]e now have young men telling Bloomberg News that they basically view their female peers as rape bombs just waiting to explode and ruin their lives.”

I REPEAT: THIS IS NOT THE ONION

*flips table*

I wish I could say I can’t believe men would say such dumb shit.

Literally, go fuck yourselves. Bye.

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.

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.

Rape victims deserve anonymity.

Rapists do not.

Giving rapists anonymity puts more women in danger of rape. 

people who have not been found guilty of rape deserve anonymity.

People who have been found guilty of falsely reporting rape do not.

Sensationalising that this person may or may not have raped someone will ruin their life. And if they haven’t, that is more than unjust. Allowing people anonymity when making false rape claims allows them to get away with it, and encourages other people to do it too.

Over 95% (I think it’s 99.6%) of reported rape cases are true.

That is literally the only statistic I need to provide.

I did some research (x, x are the most immediately relevant) and the cases that came up false in these studies seem to be around 2-8 percent of the cases reported. And, again assuming accuracy of sites, 60% of rapes are never reported to police. That means that, of all rapes that are committed (at least using United States statistics I found), .8 to 3.2 percent of rape accusations are false.

Standard or general statistics hold that if something is below 5%, it is statistically significant. Medicine (for medical tests for drugs and such) hold statistical significance at 1%.

If someone is saying they were raped then statistically they are telling the truth. Believe survivors when they say stuff. If red flags go up (and make damn sure they aren’t the flags that are there because of rape culture) then maybe think about the possibility of a false accusation. But start from assuming that they’re telling the truth. It’s too damaging to a survivor to be disbelieved, and they probably aren’t lying. So start by believing them.

See, to actually fight rape culture you need to say “Sex is always optional. You are never obligated to have sex.” You must always be concerned with consent, and that means you must accept that the answer may very well always be no.

[TW: rape]
We do know something about most men who rape. For example, numerous studies have found that while they tend to be more emotionally constricted than nonaggressive men, and are often angry and hostile to women, most of them are psychologically “normal.” The psychologist David Lisak points out that the old stereotype of the rapist was derived in part from extensive studies with incarcerated rapists, many of whom committed acts of grievous violence against their victims, who were often strangers. But according to Lisak, research over the past twenty years clearly demonstrates that the vast majority of rapes are perpetrated by what he calls “undetected rapists,” and they usually know their victims. Undetected rapists are men who typically behave in stereotypically masculine ways, see sex as conquest, and are hypersensitive to any perceived slight against their manhood. But they are not crazy, and they are not sociopaths. “There is simply no evidence, save the rape itself,” Katharine Baker writes in the Harvard Law Review, “suggesting that all or even most rapists are objectively depraved.” Chillingly, she goes on to say that given the social norms that encourage it, there is evidence that rape is “culturally dictated, not culturally deviant.

Sign the Petition: Judge who blames 14-year-old victim needs to go

Please sign this.

Cherice Moralez was just 14 when her 49-year old teacher repeatedly raped her. Two years later, Cherice committed suicide—and according to her mother, the trauma of rape was a major factor in her death. But Billings, Montana Judge G. Todd Baugh sent her rapist to prison for just 30 days—saying the victim was “as much in control of the situation” as her rapist and that she was “older than her chronological age.”

THIS is rape culture at its worst: when our courts can let a man who raped a child go free after just days in jail and then blame the child for her own rape.

Judge Baugh’s statement has made national news, and the outrage in Montana is growing. If tens of thousands of us from all over the country join with local protesters and speak out, we can make sure that authorities disrobe Judge Baugh so he can never let a rapist off the hook again. Can you sign the petition?

Excuse YOU, but fat women are routinely harassed BOTH sexually and because of their weight. Often times, these harassments come both at the same time. Not to mention the fact that fat people have to deal with a large amount of fetishization from “fat admirers” who act like they are god’s gift to fat women, that fat women should be overwhelmingly grateful that anyone would deign to consider them attractive (which is just silly because so many actual decent human beings find us attractive).
And finally yes, fat people do get raped. Often. And often rapists, or the douchenuggets that support the rapists, say that the fat person was ‘lucky’ to even be having ‘sex’ (I put that in quotes because rape is not sex) because they are so supposedly undesirable. 
im-eternally-love didn’t submit her experience to illustrate the fact that she doesn’t get harassed, she submitted it to illustrate the fact that she does get harassed, but no one believes that someone would sexually harass or rape a fat person. Congratulations, your bigotry has herded you into an incoherent pattern of circular logic.

Safety Tips for Men

manhating-babyeater:

Men, are you worried for your own safety because misandry?

You need to accept that misandry happens in the real world and take some precautions.

Take a self defense class, they’re only a couple hundred dollars a month.

Don’t go out after dark unless you have a woman to chaperone you. Misandrists are less likely to attack if they see you are with another woman.

Don’t wear anything too douchey. If you’re wearing a fedora or a sexist t-shirt, etc. you’re pretty much asking to get attacked. Misandrists can’t control themselves when they see a man in a fedora, their instincts kick in and before they know it they have a dead male corpse in their hands. Just be a good boy and don’t tempt them, okay?

Don’t ever invite a woman into your home. Misandrists will interpret this as you consenting to physical violence.

Drinking increases your risk of being attacked by a misandrist. They target drunk men because their inhibitions are lowered.

Never leave your drink unattended. Misandrists are notorious for poisoning men at parties and bars.

If a misandrist does attack you, be quiet and just let her finish or you might anger her further and you are liable to get murdered instead of just mutilated. But also, be sure to put up a good fight because a lot of men say they don’t want to be attacked by misandrists but deep down, they really like it.

And remember, accusing a woman of abusive misandry is worse than being abused by a misandrist. So before you make accusations, make sure it wasn’t all just a silly misunderstanding.
