"Romance"

I had a Blockbuster employee do this to me once. He looked up my name in their database and used it to look me up on facebook and send me a message telling me how cute I was. It was hella creepy. Don’t do that.

just in case you somehow forgot how horrible the pro life movement is

if people have the right to the hospital then i have the right to  critically wound them

If people have the right to education then I have the right to give them brain damage

If people have a right to lock their doors I have right to burglarize their home.

His logic was actually even worse and possibly more disturbing than the interpretations of the people above. ^ Because rape is a lesser crime than murder and he views abortion as murder, he was saying that rape should definitely be legal if abortion is legal. His statement wasn’t so much about thinking that rape should be allowed if women have the ability to “undo” the consequences. Either message would have been absolutely disgusting, of course.

I can see your feet and it’s very distracting and slightly arousing.

How dare that victim not have bulletproof flesh

How dare their body bleed out from the wound

How dare they die on the way to the hospital

Those poor gunmen. their lives ahead of them in ruins because someone was inconsiderate enough to allow themselves to be shot.

You see, it doesn’t fucking work this way.

When I was a freshman, my sister was in eighth grade. There was a boy in two of her periods who would ask her out every single day. (Third and seventh period, if I remember correctly.) All day during third and seventh she would repeatedly tell him no. She didn’t beat around the bush, she didn’t lie and say she was taken—she just said no.

One day, in third period, after being rejected several times, he said; “I have a gun in my locker. If you don’t say yes, I am going to shoot you in seventh.”

a restaurant in my hometown got a review that said the servers should “show some skin” so the owner added a potato skin special to the menu and all the proceeds from the special go to the west virginia foundation for rape information services (x)

A great comic telling people to stand up for their fellow fans!

You want to know how terrible that these douche bags can get? I made a Sailor Venus cosplay for my younger sister who looked amazing and proud to wear it. I made sure she wore white shorts that covered her panties and stopped where the skirt ended, (because of the horror stories we heard about perverts taking pictures up cosplayers’ skirts without consent) Turns out there were jerks trying to take pics up her skirt, but started to complain to each other that she was wearing shorts under and it wasn’t fair. SHE WAS UNDERAGE AT THE TIME OF WEARING THIS COSPLAY! Not only were they attempting sexual harassment, but ON A MINOR! Please, reblog this, spread the word, and stand up for other cosplayers if you see/hear this.

they were complaining because it wasn’t fair

"When I started playing Detective Olivia Benson, I began to get a lot of letters from viewers. I had gotten fan mail before, but these letters were different. They were coming from individuals who were disclosing histories of violence and abuse - a lot of them for the first time. I knew I had to do something, so I trained to become a rape crisis counselor, I joined Boards, I got involved. I was proud to be on a show that was brave enough to go into territory that no one was talking about, but I also knew I wanted to do more and play a larger role to help survivors heal and reclaim their lives. In 2004 I created the Joyful Heart Foundation with the mission to heal, educate, and empower survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence, and child abuse, and to shed light on the darkness surrounding these issues. I’m very proud to report that since we began, we’ve provided direct services to over 5,400 people, and that we’re determined to change the conversation about violence and abuse.” - Mariska Hargitay

Social Change Through Consumerism: Feminist Style

[Amulya] Sanagavarapu, who is finishing up her final semester at the University of Waterloo in Canada, was inspired by a prank from activist group FORCE, which advertised a fake line of “consent panties” from Victoria’s Secret last year. When it was clear that no existing companies were making moves to create the undies — despite obvious interest from would-be consumers on Twitter — Sanagavarapu decided to step up and do it herself.

So Feminist Style was born, and with it a debut line of consent-themed panties and briefs. The collection features different styles for both men and women, detailed with statements like “Ask first,” “Consent is sexy,” and “Only yes means yes,” mixed with messages of body positivity. Her hope is that it will encourage a more thoughtful discourse on consent and sexual boundaries.

“I think having consent panties as a real product out in the market, as actual alternatives to underwear slogans that teach that ‘no’ is a way to flirt (i.e., “No peeking”), would serve as a small step to shifting the culture around consent,” Sanagavarapu wrote to BuzzFeed.

“They aren’t meant to speak for the wearer, and they won’t stop serial rapists, but they may serve as sort of a fun way to initiate conversations about boundaries and what each person is or is not comfortable with. The main goal is to help shift the culture from one that encourages sexual objectification to one that promotes consent education.”

The underwear isn’t available for purchase just yet, but she’s launched a Kickstarter to raise enough money to make the idea a reality. Proceeds from underwear sales will in turn be used to fund feminist advertising.

“Our feminist advertising will mostly be in the form of PSAs that bring awareness to the issues that our products are targeting — so to start with they will target issues of consent and rape culture,” Sanagavarapu told us, citing videos from New Zealand’s “Who Are You?” campaign and YWCA Auckland as examples. “Anything that promotes our products directly will also be done so with models of all shapes and sizes.”

The underwear line is only the first stage for Feminist Style, and Sanagavarapu intends to expand the brand’s horizons with more varied products. But she hasn’t finalized anything just yet.

“Our mission is to ‘sell products that target sexism to promote gender equality’, so as long as we see ads and products with sexism there will always be something new for Feminist Style to do. One obvious example of a product that fits this description — which may or may not be our next product — is how the only Halloween costumes for women are all ‘sexy.’ There’s nothing wrong with any woman choosing to wear a revealing costume, but when that’s the only option available you know that something is off.”

As of this posting, she only has $13k out of $150k, with 17 days left! Tumblr, I know you want this, and we can easily do it!

i-once-had-a-guy-tell-me:

I was in a city downtown and a guy started following me. I tried for almost an hour to get rid of him. I stared him blank in the face so he’d know I’d be able to identify him, pretended my friend was waiting for me by making a fake phone call, stopped in and out of stores. Put he kept creeping up behind me without saying anything. Finally I decided to ask an officer for help. His reply was “well maybe he just likes you.”
