Anonymous said: Sorry, but as a female I think women who claim to be raped multiple times are either lying for attention or really stupid. You're obviously doing something wrong if you put yourself in a position to be raped multiple times by either the same person or different people. #sorrynotsorry

housewifeswag:

you know, you must be right. you’ve solved the entire rape crisis by blaming the women who are being raped.

This must be ESPECIALLY true in countries where men believe that they are sexually entitled and there are unequal gender relations. I’m sure you were talking about the US but let’s take a look at the rest of the world for a moment:

Now the US is 6th on the list with 28.6%/100,000

You mentioned that women who are raped multiple times are either lying for attention (in which the truth is only about 8-10% are ‘unfounded’ and honestly, it’s hard to grasp the correct % of those ‘lying’ for attention) because incidents like this occur far too often. Now about them being “really stupid”… About 2/3 of victims know their attacker and more than 50% of all rape/sexual assault incidents were reported by victims to have occurred within 1 mile of their home or at their home. Do you think maybe they’re simply afraid to report the person because they know them and their rapist has threatened them or they trust them not to do it again? Yeah, probably. Or maybe they don’t think anything will come from them stepping forward or they’ll be blamed. Only 3 out of every 100 rapists will ever spend a day in prison. Not to mention the effects of being raped are extensive and can include depression, PTSD, and suicide. 

I’m going to assume that you haven’t been raped, let alone multiple times. However I think it’s safe (and very sad) to assume that someone close to you has been raped considering 1 out of every 6 women has been a victim of rape or attempted rape in their lifetime. I can assure you that if it was someone dear to your heart or you, that you wouldn’t take this smug approach. 

You are part of the problem. Victim-blaming compounds the psychological trauma experienced by survivors (remember the effects we talked about earlier?) You’re giving rapists a free pass and are possibly allowing them to harm another individual. 

No one wants to be hurt. Especially in such a violent and hurtful manner.

What the Mexican media is doing is taking something Lupita Nyong’o worked very hard for and making it about Mexico… knowing fully well that, had Lupita tried to start a career in Mexico, she wouldn’t have been able to.

This is an opportunity she wouldn’t…

Edward Scissorhands: a lovely story to explain that, adorable as they might be, goths are not well suited for a life in captivity and best left in their natural environments.
If you encounter a goth in the wild, please, take a few pictures then leave in peace. It may not seem like it, but they really are much happier alone in their dilapidated mansion. Introducing them to the suburban household always ends in tears and angry mobs.

Tonight moving into Tuesday is supposed to be pretty fucking bad, you guys. The US hasn’t seen temperatures like this in decades (with windchills some places are looking at being -30°F or -40°F) and a lot of snow is going to be falling on top of everything else. When you add this to high winds conditions are going to be just plain dangerous.
PLEASE STAY SAFE.
This is some seriously heavy shit. There are all kinds of things that you can do to stay warm. Bundle up. This isn’t really a time to skimp out on heating your house. If you are worried about your pipes freezing, allow your faucets to drip a tiny bit at all times. If you have heat tape, plug it in. But most of all. Please don’t drive in these conditions. A lot of places have already put driving bans in place and I can’t stress enough that they are there for a reason. 
Stay warm, everyone. Stay safe. Also please spread this around so that people understand just how serious things are going to be. Some places may experience power outages and that is terrifying with these conditions. Tell your friends. Be informed. Pay attention to what your local stations are saying.

Hello americans, as a Canadian I have some tips for dealing with the cold. First is that if your power goes out and you don’t know when it will be back on the best thing to do is immediately go and use the hot water and put some in a thermos for later on. If you have camping gear I suggest you get it out so that you can use the sleeping bags to keep warm. If your house gets cold enough for water to freeze then when you go to bed I suggest actually putting some water in a container in your fridge, fridges are well insulated and even though it will make the water cold compared to normal room temperature the fridge temperature should be high enough to prevent it from freezing. If you have a dog or cat letting it share the bed with you is a very good way to keep both of you warm, if they are under the covers they can help heat it up. Give all hamsters/mice/rodents extra bedding so they can stay warm. Personally I put some toilet paper or kleenex in for my hamster because it’s a good insulator and it doesn’t get tangled in their feet, but only use stuff that isn’t medicated because that might hurt them. Dress in as many layers as you can and use thicker clothing made of fabrics like cotton. Decide which rooms you want to keep warm and close the doors to all other rooms to prevent heat loss from the others, if you can have everyone sleep in the same room do it, that will keep people warmer. If you are already using all the blankets you can also use towels to help keep warm. If the sun is out open your drapes so the sunlight can help heat the room, if the sun isn’t out close them tightly to prevent further heat loss. Don’t let yourself overheat until you sweat though, once the sweat cools it will be very hard to warm yourself back up again, also don’t let yourself get cold because of how hard it is to warm up in these conditions. I think that’s about everything so stay safe and stay indoors.
