I’ve been seeing these all over Chicago. Hell yeah
I saw this bullshit on some lightpoles today, so I fixed a couple of them. FUCK VICTIM-BLAMING. EMPOWER SURVIVORS. BLAME PERPETRATORS. (Taken with Instagram)
Well, here’s something relevant.
THIS IS SO FUCKING IMPORTANT
TRIGGER WARNING: RAPE
So, the African hotel maid who was sexually assaulted by the former head of the International Monetary Fund turned out not to be the blessed virgin Mary, and so now they’re gonna drop all the charges so he can go run for the presidency of France. Of course, this was to be expected.
Wealthy men have been raping the help since time immemorial. Hell, our founding fathers did it, and for Dominique Strauss-Kahn, it’s practically a resume builder that he forced a woman to blow him in a luxury hotel. The French love that shit. He’s like a Dick Cheney who can still get it up.
For those of you who’ve followed this case and are now concerned with all the unflattering details that are being leaked about the victim, please don’t act surprised. This is how it’s done. Rich creepy fuckers like DSK have access to the best character assassins in the world, and trust me, they get away with shit that would make Charlie Sheen blush.
It’s easy to make fun of an American sensibility that creates bimbo presidential candidates like Sarah Palin, but it’s a much more insidious mindset that allows rapists like this the any chance at being a head of state.
It didn’t fucking matter. They didn’t think to factor it in. In point of fact, what much of the criticism about Odd Future has focused on is the idea that their live shows are the best part of what they do; the great, punk-rock, incendiary EXPERIENCE of Odd Future, is what gets discussed. And there are real girls getting harassed, IN FUCKING FRONT OF the white dudes who are writing paeans to and defenses of Odd Future, in front of the dudes who are praising Odd Future shows. And we need to be sophisticated. We need to talk “about” “the” “music.” We need to worry about whether we sound “screechy” or like “scolds,” don’t get too upset, don’t lose your shit, don’t act like this is some kind of litmus test for whether or not you can even vaguely respect a dude as a person. Well, dudes, I have a remarkable new theory for you: When it’s YOUR ass on the line, then YOU can tell ME how upset to fucking be about it, and how I should phrase that. Seriously. When Tyler is using you as a synonym for “worthless,” when Tyler wants to shove broken glass up your asshole, ring me up, and tell me how much I should care. I’ll listen, all you want, when you’re talking about the “sophistication” we should maintain in re: discussing whether or not your asshole deserves to have broken glass shoved up it. In the meantime?
Fuck “sophistication.” Fuck “distance” Fuck “irony.” And fuck Odd Future.
Assange was arrested because he was accused of sexual assault. The victims’ allegations against Assange should be taken seriously. Those who automatically discredit the victims, don’t take their claims seriously, or blame the victims are misogynist and are enabling rape culture - a culture that views the victim rather than the perpetrator with a critical eye.
You can support WikiLeaks without supporting an Assange’s alleged actions.

I will try to scream in pain a little nice next time!
This is the most spot on description of how I feel about rape jokes I’ve seen.
