*cries* why can’t they make this in the US?
Damnit. I feel sick, slept to make a headache go away and woke up cause of it. Yay.
But women can never be careful enough, can we? If we take naked pictures of ourselves, we’re asking for it. If someone can manage to hack into our accounts, we’re asking for it. If we’re not wearing anti-rape nail polish, we’re asking for it. If we don’t take self-defence classes, we’re asking for it. If we get drunk, we’re asking for it. If our skirts are too short, we’re asking for it. If we pass out at a party, we’re asking for it. If we are not hyper-vigilant every single fucking second of every single fucking day, we are asking for it. Even when we are hyper-vigilant, we’re still asking for it. The fact that we exist is asking for it.
This is what rape culture looks like.
This is what misogyny looks like.
Labor Day 2014

Labor Day in Ferguson.
Michael Brown’s dad before the burial.
The emotion and all of the sweat…. shit is hard to look at, even if its only a picture
I didn’t want to reblog this because it’s hard to look at, but people SHOULD see it.
We SHOULD see a father mourning his teenage son.
We SHOULD see how a killing like Mike’s can take a toll on not only a community, but a family.
It’s as easy for young black men to become martyrs as it is for them to become victims. They can never just be humans.
We can never just be.
[Context: Doctor Michael Kimmel explaining the sex-based division of social roles, subsequently leading to women’s second shift, as a central factor in the argument against it being possible for middle-class working women to “have it all” (a successful, engaging career life and a fulfilling family/home life) and that it is men’s lack of household involvement in these specifically heterosexual, cohabitant relationships that is reinforcing the barrier that makes it difficult for women to excel and balance both home life and work life as men traditionally have].
