I post about feminism and racism and politics stuff, just generally trying to reach the lowest rungs of human decency. Little bit of nerdy shit, lot a bit of nicki minaj. Basically everything I think is cool that comes across my dash. I'm 21 and I go by she/her pronouns.

Petition for sex positivity to be reframed in a way that is actually intersectional and doesn’t prioritize protecting kinks over protecting the survivors who are triggered by them.

"Is it political if I tell you that if we burn coal, you’re going to warm the atmosphere? Or is that a statement of fact that you’ve made political? It’s a scientific statement. The fact that there are elements of society that have made it political, that’s a whole other thing."

"Sex Workers Can’t Be Raped."

In California, a police officer who ejaculated on a woman he’d detained at a traffic stop -and threatened to arrest her if she took action against him- was let off even after admitting what he’d done. Why? Well, the victim was a stripper on her way home from work. In officer David Alex Park’s 2007 trial, Park’s defense attorney argued that the woman “got what she wanted” and that she was “an overtly sexual person”. The jury (composed of one woman and eleven men) found Park not guilty on all counts.
Similarly, a judge in Philadelphia ruled that a sex worker whom multiple men had raped at gunpoint hadn’t been raped at all -she’d just been robbed. The victim, a twenty-year-old woman, who’d worked for an escort service and obtained clients via Craigslist, had agreed to certain sexual acts with the defendant for a set amount of money. But he lured her to an abandoned piece of property and pulled a gun -then more men started showing up. When a fifth man was invited to assault her, he instead helped her get dressed and leave because he saw that she was crying. But municipal judge Teresa Carr Deni insisted that what happened to this woman wasn’t rape -it was “theft of services”.
“I thought rape was a terrible trauma,” Deni told a Philadelphia Daily News columnist. “[A case like this] minimized true rape cases and demeans women who are really raped.”
Women who are “really” raped. You can’t get much clearer than that -a sex worker just doesn’t classify as one of these victims.

if you think gender has nothing to do with rape you need to fucking do your research

here look i’ll do some for you

no one is saying that men can’t be raped we would NEVER say that. but when we are talking about the prevalence of rape culture in a patriarchal society, that’s when we are focusing on women. and you all only ever bring up male survivors to derail discussions and further your anti-feminist (misogynist) agendas anyway.

^^ ALL OF THIS. Simple math, people. Learn it.
