NASA’s Cassini spacecraft has provided scientists the first close-up, visible-light views of a behemoth hurricane swirling around Saturn’s north pole.
If women covering up their bodies worked, Afghanistan would have a lower rate of sexual assault than Polynesia. It doesn’t.
If not drinking alcohol worked, children would not be raped. They are.
If your advice to a woman to avoid rape is to be the most modestly dressed, soberest and first to go home, you may as well add “so the rapist will choose someone else”.
If your response to hearing a woman has been raped is “she didn’t have to go to that bar/nightclub/party” you are saying that you want bars, nightclubs and parties to have no women in them. Unless you want the women to show up, but wear kaftans and drink orange juice. Good luck selling either of those options to your friends.
Or you could just be honest and say that you don’t want less rape, you want (even) less prosecution of rapists.
So this graphic explains how “reverse racism” doesn’t exist because of deeply embedded institutionalized and structural racism…. but then TOTALLY misses the mark regarding the sexism portion.
I don’t think a millennium of social, religious, cultural, and (thus) institutionalized patriarchy can be reduced to “I hate women” nor can you use phrases like “I hate men” to describe the TONS AND TONS of tangible transphobic, sexist, and homophobic problems that have arisen from that patriarchy AND THEN dismiss those problems by saying that women’s (and queers’) issues with men are really just whining [WTF @ the “better than being DEAD” quote].
uhhhhh, started strong and then ran into the ground.
