I was in fifth grade when I started growing boobs. By the end of that year, I had a full C cup. They seemed to get big overnight and I was not mentally prepared for all of the things that came with having tits. At one of the school dances, boys I considered my friends huddled around me and started…

I’ve never asked anyone to reblog anything before, and I probably won’t again. But I am now - because this matters.

The Steubenville rape victim, when offered money for her legal expenses or counselling, asked that people donated to a shelter for abused women and…

Donate to Madden House at the YWCA in Wheeling

from the show’s transcript- Attorney Bob Fitzsimmons:

 There has been a lot of people that have offered support and help financial. They have offered to pay attorney’s fees. And we aren’t charging for those. 

So they have actually asked that those money be donated to the Madden House at the YMCA in Wheeling, West Virginia, that takes care of abused women and also rape victims. They would like to turn it into a positive.

i love this so much

actually i think equating an eating disorder with sucking a cock and swallowing sperm for a man’s satisfaction is REALLY WRONG AND FUCKED UP. 

My stomach drops each time I see this stupid image. The message is so incredibly demeaning. I imagine a man patting a girl’s chin when she forces down her food and saying “that’s a good girl.” Anyone who has suffered with disordered eating can tell you how harmful this is. It’s disgustingly, overtly sexual and degrading. Fuck this stupid picture
ALSO I WOULD LIKE TO ADD:
I have a history with eating disorders and during a time when I was avoiding food/meals I was dating a guy and I confided in him the problem I was having. He invited me to his house for a meal and he told his father I wasn’t eating and they both forced me to eat my entire meal in front of them. His father said “eat the whole thing” and they both watched as I ate a meal and tried not to cry

how aren’t there more reblogs decrying this image (and not just reblogging because people apparently like )

[TW: Sexual Assault, rape culture, victim blaming]

His lips crushed mine, stopping my protest. He kissed me angrily, roughly, his other hand gripping tight around the back of my neck, making escape impossible. I shoved against his chest with all my strength, but he didn’t even seem to notice. His mouth was soft, despite the anger, his lips molding to mine in a warm, unfamiliar way.

I grabbed at his face, trying to push it away, failing again. He seemed to notice this time, though, and it aggravated him. His lips forced mine open, and I could feel his hot breath in my mouth.

Acting on instinct, I let my hands drop to my side, and shut down. I opened my eyes and didn’t fight, didn’t feel… just waited for him to stop.

Twilight: Eclipse p. 331 (Bella and Jacob’s first kiss)

This is rape culture.

Young women are taught to think of this passage - which describes sexual assault - as erotic. Young men are taught to force their will on young women, regardless of any (non)verbal cues, because sex is conquest and women are objects - not something to be done between two consenting individuals because it’s pleasurable for both people.


The most frightening thing about this excerpt is that many survivors of sexual assault who have disclosed to me describe stories that sound exactly like this one.

The lines before that:

    He still had my chin—his fingers holding too tight, till it hurt—and I saw the resolve form abruptly in his eyes.
    “N—-” I started to object, but it was too late.

And after he assaulted her she punched him in the face but due to his “super human strength” she broke her hand, said “Don’t touche me!” and then:

    “Just let me drive you home,” Jacob insisted. Unbelievably, he had the nerve to wrap his arm around my waist.

    I jerked away from him.

And then:

    When he got in the driver’s side, he was whistling.

AND THEN while he was driving:

    “…There is so much I can give you that he can’t. I’ll bet he couldn’t even kiss you like that—-because he would hurt you. I would never, never hurt you, Bella.”

    I held up my injured hand.

    He sighed. “That wasn’t my fault. You should have known better.”

And then:

    He grinned over at me. “You kissed me back.”

    I gasped, unthinkingly balling my hands up into fists again, hissing when my broken hand reacted.

    “Are you okay?” he asked. 

     “I did not.”

    “I think I can tell the difference.”

    “Obviously you can’t——that was not kissing back, that was trying to get you the hell off me, you idiot.”

    He laughed a low, throaty laugh. “Touchy. Almost overly defensive, I would say.

    I took a deep breath. There was no point in arguing with him; he would twist anything I said.

Then when she gets home, to where her father, Charlie, the police officer, is:

    “Why did she hit you?”

    “Because I kissed her,” Jacob said, unashamed.

    “Good for you, kid,” Charlie congratulated him.

I didn’t read the citation first. I read the quote. I thought I was reading a woman’s account of how she was about to be raped, not a fucking passage from a romance novel.

still having this argument with people tho

it is this passage that people (rightfully) hate twilight

everyone knows that edward himself isn’t much better

(via unsexybeast)

There are bitches who swear this entire pile of tripe passing for young adult literature is the ideal romance.

And the entire series is like this. I didn’t just “jump” on the Twilight-hating bandwagon because I thought it was cool. The minute I heard the plot I knew it was going to be rage-inducing. I gave the books a chance and lo and behold I was fucking right.
