The thing is, though, that some women in the industry actually do seek out that kind of thing and do sign up for it because that's what they like. It's an emotional and physical experience that some people really enjoy going through. Maybe someone's tastes are a little more "fucked up" than yours. Doesn't mean they shouldn't enjoy what they want to enjoy. Don't try to speak for people you haven't spoken to.
Oy vey, I knew someone on tumblr would come in with kink-shaming accusations.
I’ll fold this into a Read More so only people who want to get into it will get into it.
Here’s my theory. The Harry Potter trio are actually representations of the other houses. Hermione is Ravenclaw. Ron is Hufflepuff. Harry is Slytheryn. They’re all in Gryffindor because they asked. In fact, everyone in that house could have been in another house if they hadn’t asked to be in Gryffindor. You have be ask to be in Gryffindor because their most defining feature is bravery and anyone can choose to be brave.
Had my tank top ripped down by a stranger leaving visible scratch marks on my chest while he screamed “puerto rican day parade”
Had a friend’s husband drunkenly stick his hand down the back of my pants under my underwear and almost inside me using the excuse that he was trying to give me a wedgie
Was talking to a guy, seemed nice, kinda cute. I refused to give him my number all night and told him I had a boyfriend (which I did). At the end of the night he started freaking out that he couldn’t find his phone and asked me to call it for him. I did with out thinking. He smiled and took it out of his pocket saying “ha ha now I have your number.” He then proceeded to drunk dial me for three weeks. (he was a west-point cadet)
Got a ride from a friend to get cigs, he stated that he wouldn’t drive me back to the bar until i made him cum. I hopped the fuck out and called my sister to pick me up.
Countless ass grabs from strangers who would then turn/run away
numerous men not taking “thanks but I’m just here to hang with my girls.” as an acceptable response to their unwanted advances.
I was dating a guy for a few weeks. I went to the bathroom, when I was coming out he was standing there, pushed me back in and tried to have sex with me against the sink. I had to knee him in the balls to get out. Never spoke to him again (added bonus, he was a cop)
And that’s just the shit that’s happened in bars. This is why we look at all men as potential predators, this is why we never feel safe, because this shit has happened to EVERY SINGLE WOMAN I KNOW.
Notice how many of these were by people she considered friends. We’re not even safe around people we should be able to trust.
And she was even with people. Stuff like this is why it’s hard for me to go to bars with friends, God FORBID alone
Look, I’m glad ‘12 Years [A Slave]’ got made and it’s wonderful that people are seeing it and there is another view of what happened in America. But I’m not real sure why Steve McQueen wanted to tackle that particular sort of thing.
[‘Fruitvale Station’] explains things like the shooting of Trayvon Martin, the problems with stop and search, and is just more poignant. America is much more willing to acknowledge what happened in the past: ‘We freed the slaves! It’s all good!’ But to say: ‘We are still unnecessarily killing black men’ – let’s have a conversation about that.
I think in light of 12 Years a Slave winning the Oscar for Best Picture, this needs to be remembered. Because it is a very important point in terms of the palatability of 12 Years a Slave and why Fruitvale Station didn’t even get nominated when it has such acclaim outside of the Oscar world.
But there’s an even older, even more critically important hint that I caught in an earlier episode but never brought up because it seemed too obvious - yet in the weeks since this particular episode aired, I have yet to see a single person talk about this. Maybe there was a post and I just missed it, but maybe not, so here goes.
I know what the endgame of this show is going to be.
Her: “But but what if your moirail is matesprites with your kismesis??” Me: “Then you go update your wall.”
I’m guessing the thought process here is something like, “what if someone you like likes someone you hate?”, but in a healthy kismesitude, there’s no reason you can’t be civil, or even friends, in the same way you don’t have to be constantly doing cutesy romancy stuff in a matespritship or human relationship. You could just hang out sometimes. The idea that you immediately must fight with your kismesis upon seeing each other should be contained to bad romcoms.
The details for why this is consider “a-okay” are really disgusting. Time to take action and make some noise, folks. This is a serious and dangerous issue.
(I first came across this article on facebook, when guys I know were posting it and high-fiving each other about it)
This court ruling is shameful. The implications of this are that wearing a skirt is putting someone at risk of having a photo taken of them without their permission. This is rape culture at work in a really harmful way.
