“If You Know Someone Who Doesn’t Believe Sexism Exists, Show Them This”

think HARD about that: not only did they white-wash Katniss, they EXPLICITLY PROHIBITED WoC TO AUDITION FOR THE ROLE OF KATNISS. Smells like blatant racism.
The girl, whose file indicates she’s extremely averse to confrontation and would forgo even her own needs to please others, was questioned again and again by officials, who told her she was a liar until she finally recanted the story. She was then expelled for a whole year. And when she came back, she was raped again. Doctors examined her and, indeed, there was evidence she had been assaulted, including DNA evidence that makes it pretty unlikely to be a made-up story, so the school suspended her for disrespectful conduct and engaging in public displays of affection, which is the cool new way shitheads refer to rape, apparently. This being a 12-year-old girl in special ed classes known to do whatever other people want to make them happy. Feeling queasy yet?
The girl’s family sued the school and almost a year later the case was settled. The school is reported to have paid the girl and her family about $185,000, which is just about the exact amount of money a scumbag will pay someone for being a scumbag if they can get a court to agree they don’t have to legally admit they’re a scumbag. Worth noting is that, in the school’s response to the lawsuit, they claimed the charges were baseless and the girl herself was at fault for failing to take reasonable means to protect herself. That feeling you had when you read that of being slapped in the face was just the metaphysical weight of the balls some lawyer must have had to write that down in legal papers crushing your psyche.
oh my god in middle school a girl in my class was suspended because a guy groped her and pulled down her shirt, exposing her chest. she was suspended for breaking the dress code and for PDA. even though it was nonconsensual. in high school one of my friends was assaulted in a hallway and she was given in school suspension, while the two guys who assaulted her had nothing happen.
how the fuck does this shit happen in schools? it’s fucking disgusting
I don’t hate men. But I sometimes wonder why not.
I am going to vomit.
The project is saying that street harassment is not okay. That feeling entitled to treat and speak to women any type of way, is not okay. That demanding a woman’s attention is not okay. That intruding on a woman’s space and thoughts is not okay. That women should be able to walk to the train, to the grocery store, to school - without having to cross the street to avoid the men that she sees already eyeing her as she approaches. That making women feel objectified, sexualized simply because they are women, is not okay. That grabbing a woman’s wrist to force her to speak to you is not okay. That requesting for a woman to “smile for you” is not okay - because women are not outside on the street for the purpose of entertaining and pleasing men. That it’s quite possible women are wonderful, happy, intelligent human beings that simply want to move through out the world comfortably and safely while wearing their face however the hell they want to.
A lot of people will not agree with this project. A lot of people, men AND women, will not understand it. And that’s okay. This project is not asking for there to be zero interaction between men and women in public spaces - it’s asking for the interaction to be respectful and safe. This project is not to persuade women to feel offended. Rather, this project is for those who do feel offended by unwelcome aggressive treatment from men.
It’s my hope that some women will walk pass these wheat pastes and feel empowered. That men will at least take notice and consider what the posters are saying. And that the conversation about street harassment will continue to be enlivened and hopefully produce some sort of solution.
So lemme get this straight… Being friendly and smiling telling a woman she should smile more is now intrusive and shows she’s there for entertainment? Some of the shit people fight for smh. Touching is one thing, being rude while talking is another. But asking a woman to smile because smiles are great is a nono also?
so you realize forcing your touch on me is intrusive but telling me to smile because you need someone to smile for whatever reason you can think of isn’t intrusive? when someone is smiling it’s because they wanted to fucking smile, an absence of a smile is not an indicator of anything other than that person is not fucking smiling - why is that a problem? why do men feel the need to control womens bodies?
EVERY. DAMN. DAY. Some man tells me that I’m too pretty to not be smiling! EVERY. DAMN. DAY. If I don’t wanna smile, I’m not gonna! And I
shouldn’tdon’t have to explain myself to random, usually creepy men who pass me on the street.
men at large think they are being robbed of something when an attractive woman with a 90% chance of developing breast cancer gets a double mastectomy
what better illustration of the male sense of sexual entitlement do you need
A message from Prince Harry at the CHIME for Change concert. (x)
I would totally put my face 4 inches from her chest and scream, “I’M SO HAPPY RIGHT NOW!” And I’d make a point never to take my eyes off her boobs until she got so uncomfortable and creeped out that she decided to leave, go back home, sit on her bed in the dark, and think about how completely stupid she was to write “STILL NOT ASKING FOR IT” while asking for it.
This woman’s a disgrace.
But she’s not asking for it. This is a human body, nothing more, nothing less. It’s not being sexualized, in fact, she’s covered her nipples too. I’m sorry, h-plus, that you feel that your body and the body of other women should be considered a disgrace. Do you feel uncomfortable when looking at pictures in the doctor’s office of a woman’s naked body? And do you, leftybegone, get uncontrollably horny at the same sight? Control your python (or garden snake), man, you’re not 12. Have some maturity over the matter. If you did that to that woman, leftybegone, you’d just be putting a bad face on us guys, making us seem like sex-crazed, immature horndogs. Maybe you are one, but I’m tired people making that assumption of us as a gender. It’s disgraceful. She wouldn’t think it was stupid of her to do that if you did. You’d just make her movement more powerful.
Rape (noun):the crime of forcing another person to submit to sex acts, especially sexual intercourse.
Men aren’t primal fucking animals. They’re humans that are completely capable of resisting their urges. I bet you (leftybegone) are a kid with some serious hormones since you, obviously, can’t control yourself.
“She was asking for it”. Really? Can you really blame an individual for someone else’s lack of control? The mere fact that a woman is more likely to be assaulted if she wears certain types of clothing does not make it right. She could walk around naked and that still doesn’t excuse rape. The solution to the problem is not for women to “dress less slutty” but for men to realize that a woman’s choice of dress is not an open invitation to sexual assault.

but then again, its kind like putting a meat suit on and telling a shark not to eat you
We (men) are not fucking sharks!
We are not rabid animals living off of pure instinct
We are capapble of rational thinking and understanding.
Just because someone is cooking food doesn’t mean you’re entitled to eat it.
Just because a banker is counting money doesn’t mean you’re being given free money.
Just because a person is naked doesn’t mean you’re entitled to fuck them.
You are not entitled to someone else’s body just because it’s exposed.
What is so fucking difficult about this concept?
I think it’s amusing that you have one half of tumblr who just get it and understand that rape is caused by rapists and nothing more than that. And then you have the other half, as you can see above, who are just still so fucking ignorant and oblivious to their own stupidity. How are you functioning in society with this view of the world. How.
If I were a man, I would be fucking repulsed and completely offended if someone used the whole “oh, it’s hormones/instinct/human nature” excuse. Bullshit. Men are humans. With functioning brains and the capability to make clear, calculated decisions. A naked woman does not change that. Nudity/scantily-clad bodies do NOT excuse rape. Rape. Is. Never. Okay.
I hope people realise that there is no such thing as “Asking for rape” because the whole idea of asking for rape completely contradicts the definition of rape. It’s not rocket science.
