stop raping me

I try really hard to just sort through the submissions and keep my mouth shut so that this blog will be about tattoo imagery and only tattoo imagery because I know that’s why you’re all following it. And I’d rather just be that silent entity working behind the scenes; it’s less work for me. But, y’all, there is a limit to the amount of poorly-drawn, hypersexualized, racist nonsense I can put up with in one submission without my head exploding, and some of y’all are pushing it today. Please stop this.

Ok, I’m going to back to what I was doing.. Thanks for your time.

I was raped and I can’t stand being touched. I tell my family and friends I’m just not a very touchy person, but they ignore me and will hug or grab me. They don’t know what happened, and I know they don’t mean any harm by it, but I’ve asked them to stop so many times..

Anon, stop sending me this shit or I’m gonna block you.  This is the second time you’ve sent me something like this (I chose to ignore the first message but clearly you’re not gonna stop).

I’m literally not in the mood for fucking trolls today.

No-one deserves to die or have anything else awful happen to them because of a damn cartoon.  Get over it.

I ain’t scared of shit he stopped raping me when I was sixteen I’m only afraid of him fuck you I’ll dive of the golden gate without a cord. I’ll drag race I’ll do whatever the fuck ever I’m not scared of anything but him

TBH?? I forgive my father for all the bad he did to me. I still hate him but I forgive him. Although he was toxic he just leaves me alone now. He doesn’t care. He barely even acknowledges my existence which is much better than my witch of a mother who continues to emotionally abuse me. Although he’s p chill now I still can’t stand being around him. The way he looks at me makes me extremely uncomfortable and it’s really clear he’s a pedophile. I can see how badly he wants to rape me in his eyes and I really don’t know what’s stopping him from raping me. His hugs are a little too tight and they want to make me puke

The question I get asked by religious people all the time is, without God, what’s to stop me from raping all I want? And my answer is: I do rape all I want. And the amount I want is zero. And I do murder all I want, and the amount I want is zero. The fact that these people think that if they didn’t have this person watching over them that they would go on killing, raping rampages is the most self-damning thing I can imagine. I don’t want to do that. Right now, without any god, I don’t want to jump across this table and strangle you. I have no desire to strangle you. I have no desire to flip you over and rape you.

“Kim Kardashian has two young kids!!!”

“Show some respect, she has a family at home!”

“Don’t make jokes, her children could have lost their mother”

every single response i’ve read about Kim Kardashian has been about pleading for empathy for the woman….except that they’re not really actually asking for you to respect her, are they?

they’re saying

“she matters because she is a mother”

she matters because she has people that like her”

but there was no

“She matters because she is a woman, because she is a human being, and women matter.”

and this is the most common trope when it comes to rape & violence against women, we only matter when our abuse affects someone else

every white knight brings out the  “what if it was your mother or your sister, or aunt or daughter!!” as if my worth, the factor that should stop men from raping me, is my relation to a man, and not the fact that i am human and no person has the right to hurt me.

Whether my words are heard by millions or none, i matter just as much. My impact on the world does not increase or lessen my right to be respected as a human being. I don’t need to be a man’s daughter, a boy’s mother, a person’s anything, to be deserving of respect and empathy, especially in the face of violence. 

Kim Kardashian doesn’t deserve empathy because she is a mother, because she is someone’s daughter, someone’s wife, someone’s sister, or cousin, or aunt or godmother or friend

Kim Kardashian, and every woman before and after her who will face rape, exploitation, violence and have that violence trivialized by others, matters because they are women

Women matter because we are people
