"Don’t take a nude pic if you’re a famous woman and don’t want it leaked."

mysharona1987:

"Don’t wear a hoodie if you don’t want to be mistaken for a criminal and shot."

"Don’t get drunk at a party if you don’t want to be sexually assaulted."

"Don’t argue with a cop if you don’t want to get killed."

"Don’t walk home by yourself if you don’t want to get raped."

Victim blaming 101: Everyone should live in fear from ever doing anything.

Raining Spiders

In the southern Brazilian town of Santo Antônio da Platina, hundreds of spiders can be seen hanging from telephone and power poles.

The species of spider are Anelosimus eximius, which are classified as social spiders. They weave a massive web which allows them to capture bigger or more prey than an individual spider’s web would.

These are forms of male aggression that only women see. But even when men are afforded a front seat to harassment, they don’t always have the correct vantage point for recognizing the subtlety of its operation. Four years before the murders, I was sitting in a bar in Washington, D.C. with a male friend. Another young woman was alone at the bar when an older man scooted next to her. He was aggressive, wasted, and sitting too close, but she smiled curtly at his ramblings and laughed softly at his jokes as she patiently downed her drink. ‘Why is she humoring him?’ my friend asked me. ‘You would never do that.’ I was too embarrassed to say: ‘Because he looks scary’ and ‘I do it all the time.’

Women who have experienced this can recognize that placating these men is a rational choice, a form of self-defense to protect against setting off an aggressor. But to male bystanders, it often looks like a warm welcome, and that helps to shift blame in the public eye from the harasser and onto his target, who’s failed to respond with the type of masculine bravado that men more easily recognize.

BOOOM.  Read this if you are a dude, please.

Anonymous said: you here about Antonio French being exposed as an opportunist ?

kingjaffejoffer:

This is the so called “evidence” people are using against him saying he was an opportunist.

I don’t see what the big deal is.

And I don’t see how him sending out this tweet negates the fact that he was on the ground every night inhaling tear gas and playing peacemaker to prevent people from rioting and looting. 

he’s a politician so I’m not trying to say his intentions with anything are 100% pure and that he’s an angel. But I’m saying I think he’s done far more good than harm and its sad that people want to wash away all his deeds because he wanted to be verified on Twitter.
