‎”THROUGH A RAPIST’S EYES” (PLS TAKE TIME TO READ THIS. it may save a life.) Reblog this!
  It seems that alot of attackers use some tactic to get away with violence. Not many people know how to take care of themselves when faced with such asituation. Everyone should read this especially each n every girl in this world. THOUGHT THIS WAS GOOD INFO TO PASS ALONG…FYI - Through a rapist’s eyes! A group of rapists and date rapists in prison were interviewed on what they look for in a potential victim and here are some interesting facts:1] The first thing men look for in a potential victim is hairstyle.They are most likely to go after a woman with a ponytail, bun! , braid, or other hairstyle that can easily be grabbed. […]



JFC. This shit has been being passed around on the internet for 14 years now. This is just straight up victim blaming. About 2/3rds of rapes are committed by someone the victim knows. So please don’t think you’re helping people by telling them to wear their hair in a bun.

Also that fucking picture? A young white girl with a man who appears to have dark skin? Fuuuuuuck that.

Last words of unarmed black youth gunned down by law enforcement. 

"There are reasons why white gun’s rights activists can walk into a Chipotle restaurant with assault rifles and be seen as gauche nuisances while unarmed black men are killed for reaching for their wallets or cell phones, or carrying children’s toys. Guns aren’t for black people, either.”

from America is Not For Black People

if you live your whole life and then die without making a purposeful choice to become a white ally then American racism becomes your legacy.

This part infuriates me:

"Bisexual activists have been extremely critical of Slate’s running of the post, though there has been no formal response from Slate despite “multiple inquiries” and the only response GLAAD received was from Prudence herself thanking GLAAD for their note.”

A thank you note?  Do they think they can patch this over with a thank you note?  A thank you note is what you send your elderly great aunt when she buys you an ugly Christmas sweater, not what you say when civil rights groups point out your flagrantly offensive rhetoric!  What the hell Slate? 

Yoffe owes the bisexual letter writer and the bisexual community an apology.  She needs to make a commitment to doing some kind of bisexual cultural competency training with someone — be it GLAAD or BiNet or BRC.  Or she needs to stop giving bisexual people her so-called “advice”. 

And where the hell is the Outward (Slate’s LGBT section) staff on this?  It is happening on their site on their watch and you’d never know it to look at their section.  Are they going to hold their co-workers accountable to write fairly and accurately about the B in LGBT, or does Outward only exist to shove queer content into a little ghetto so Slate can try to sell us a Lexus?
