I’d like to cancel my subscription to Menstrual Cycle Monthly
I’m sorry, it appears you’ve taken out a fifty-sixty year subscription. However, we can pause it for nine months as long as you sign a contract that says you’ll take out a subscription to Baby Daily for at least eighteen years
Damn those Terms and Conditions.
So I flipped out on my dad because there are middle school + aged boys running around my neighborhood, playing hiding seek. Well they keep coming into our yard and I have my blinds open (clearly because I can see them running around since I’m on the first floor) and I tell my dad in passing that I can see their heads passing my window (just a remark to let him know I know they’re on our lawn) and he tells me, “well, close your blinds. Once boys know there is a girl with an open window, they’re going to look inside, so close them.”
What my dad just said is a problem. Why should I, in the privacy of my bedroom, in my house, have to close the blinds because there is someone on my lawn who shouldn’t be there? If I do, there is an implication that if my privacy is broken, it is entirely my fault because I should have known boys would have taken advantage of it. No. Those thoughts along with the “boys will be boys” encourage victim blaming when it comes to sexual assault. That the victim should have done something to prevent i from happening. My dad should not have been warning me, he should have (if the boys were looking in my room, but they weren’t) been warning the boys and enforce the concept of what they were doing was wrong. That is something basic parenting should teach children, particularly young boys.
I guess this just reinforces my belief that our media, schools, and other resources need to be teaching boys not to rape. Not teaching girls “this is what you should do so you don’t get raped” because teaching young girls that makes them believe that the assault was their fault when it wasn’t. Schools need to teach boys that when a girl says ‘no’, you stop. You do NOT blame her or demean her because she told you ‘no’. You respect her decision, her choice. Teach boys that taking away someone’s right to choose is possibly the worst thing you could to a human being. I personally know that if I have sons, I will be teaching them that.
Men should be offended by this too because society makes it seem as if men are natural born monsters who are bound to sexually assault someone someday. Not all men are like that and those who aren’t should be offended by the way society is portraying them and help women in this fight against sexual assault and the education that leads to it.
Well done society.
279,136 .. this shouldn’t have so many notes. :((
and actually, I’m glad this has so many notes. Not because people are getting bullied, but because those people aren’t keeping it a secret.
still bullied to this day
Do we really have to take this?
A friend of mine was moving from her apartment. She asked me to look after some of her things. I agreed and not too long after she asked if her daughter Frances can come pick it up. I agreed and she came over with her boyfriend, who was also the father of her baby. I helped them carry the stuff down to the car, and during the whole visit exchanged possibly 10 words.
Next day I received these texts. I had to created a fiancee I didn’t really have in order for him to stop.
I never told my friend what her daughter’s boyfriend did. Now they are expecting a second child, so as you all see, there was no break up.
So Do we women really have to take this kind of attitude?
Do we have to invent things and people in order to be left alone.
I don’t want to have my titties banged.
I am not an easy lay.
I don’t deserve this.
Why do I go from being called “cute” “smart” and “pretty” in the beginning of the conversation, to “fatty” “bitch” and “ugly” in the end?
Reblog if you are against sexual harassment.
What an asshole..
this shit is so frustrating. these dudes are seriously psychotic as fuck. like he kept harassing her, THEN tried to pit the blame on her. that sounds like a fucking rapist/abuser/manipulator to me.
