I need an end to rape culture, because when the police found me, age 13, broken and bruised, sleeping in a store doorway, and I finally broke and told them I was being sexually exploited by my step-father who was raping and torturing me, whilst selling me to other men to do the same, I was asked repeatedly what I was wearing, how many boyfriends I had, whether I was attracted to my 65 year old step-dad at the age of 10. I was made out to be a manipulative whore, the 10 year old who was raped.
Update pakistan; 1. They are stopping people from giving blood to protestors who are bleeding out 2. They are forcing doctors not to report number of deaths and injuries 3. They have hit people with real steel bullets instead of rubber one’s 4. They are sending severely injured people home without giving them proper treatment
CAN WE PLEASE SIGNAL BOOST THIS? Because literally nobody I’ve spoken to about this even knows wtf is happening.
“Sometimes we get sad about things and we don’t like to tell other people that we are sad about them. We like to keep it a secret. Or sometimes, we are sad but we really don’t know why we are sad, so we say we aren’t sad but we really are.”—Mark Haddon, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time (via psych-facts)
my little cousin got bit by a house spider and she was crying so i went to get some stuff to soothe and numb it but before i could even walk out the door i heard her quietly whisper ‘i can’t handle the responsibility of being spiderman’
"real men dont rape" actually, real men do rape. they do. men rape. it isn’t done by ~fake mythical special brand of evil~ men, it’s done by real men, men who may seem nice, men who you think you can trust, men you know, men who you’re close to. real men do rape. that’s the problem
telling women not to wear short skirts or show their elbows or whatever the fuck is considered ~revealing~ these days is less about mens’ “self control” and more about controlling women’s bodies while normalising rape because you’re basically saying that if women are “revealing” then rape is fine
