According to the Internet, this is what Europeans think breakfast in America is like.
When young women are sexually assaulted, we question their pasts and critique their clothing choices, yet rarely ask their attackers to simply be accountable for having no self-control, and no respect for the humanity of the girls they’ve violated.
When middle school girls post half–naked photos of themselves on Instagram, we vilify and ostracize them as cheap and easy, while ignoring the dozens of young men who mindlessly vote their approval each time, who feed the insecurity, and who perpetuate each degrading act with the click of a mouse.
When high school girls get jobs at chain restaurants, which require them to expose their body parts to strangers over trays of nachos, we bemoan their lack of humility and class, yet never question the thousands of men who fill these eateries every day; many with daughters the same age as the ones they ogle.
When women embarrassingly writhe on poles for a few sweaty dollar bills, in dimly lit bars ironically called “Gentlemen’s Clubs”, we heap insults and judgement on them, yet let the many married men who pay both the dancers and the mortgage each month, come and go without blemish or critique.
Sooner or later, we need to stop letting boys be boys, and we need to challenge them to be men.
Sooner or later, we need to pull them out of their perpetual adolescence and into adulthood, and ask them to evenly carry the weight of sexual standards.
Sooner or later, we need to show our young men that the they can actually raise the moral temperature in sexual situations, not reflect them.

I don’t have the biggest following, but this needs to be shared in every possible outlet. Hayley is important to so many people here, and they are literally trudging through marsh in the cold rain to find her. Vital information is missing in this case, such as the identity of the “group of people” who helped her fix her tire. If anyone has changed a tire in the New Orleans/UNO area, please come forward. If anyone has seen Hayley or her vehicle, please come forward.
And please, please reblog this. It’s been nearly four days, and we refuse to lose hope.
This is the facebook page that has been created to aide in the search, where more information can be found: https://www.facebook.com/HelpFindHayleyHoward
do your eyes ever randomly go out of focus and then you are too lazy to focus them back in and just stare at nothing for a while
its v weird being at a point where im not close to anybody like something will happen to me and ill be like “omg i wanna tell somebody about it” and then ill realize i literally have no close friends that i could tell stupid things about my day to. i dont even have close friends i could tell serious things to like i think i only have one friend that keeps up with me and we talk maybe once or twice a week. sorry if this came off all whiny and annoying lmao it just sucks tbh
A 2010 survey reported by Sky News revealed 46 per cent of men aged 18 to 25 do not consider it rape if a man continues to penetrate a woman after she has changed her mind. Last week a survey conducted by Rape Crisis and Reveal magazine showed a third of women do not believe a rape to have taken place if an alleged victim did not fight back. It’s only eight years since a poll by Amnesty International suggested 8 per cent people believe a woman to be totally - that’s totally - responsible for rape if she’s had many sexual partners. The truth is, an alarming number of people are very comfortable indeed with the idea of rape in certain circumstances. Like George Galloway, they merely see it as “bad sexual etiquette.” Rape doesn’t horrify them, not a bit; rape accusations do.
nvm my last post i dont think id feel comfortable talking about it with anybody i just wish i had close friends that i could lol
Hey you remember that one time a black guy’s sister was almost raped but instead of being sympathetic towards him, the country autotuned him because he was so flamboyant.
Or that time a black woman house burned down, but we turned her into a meme?
