There is a post re: through the eyes of a rapists that keeps showing up.

Of course your physical safety is the utmost importance, 

  • problem is only 7% of rapes are someone you don’t know and that is what rape kits are mainly about. 

And yes, the 2% or rapists that get convicted are “stranger rapes”.   

so yes, all this information from wearing clothes hard to rip off to never walking out to your car alone are all valid, 

  • but when 93% of rapes are a male friend, a first date, a family member

what does having a umbrella in your hands have to do with anything? 

It’s also feeding into the “mythology” you will be raped by someone not in your same race. The media doesn’t publish all the cases of women raped by who they are dating or cousin.   

Rape kits in these situations don’t prove that you screamed no.  You don’t have to prove sex occurred, but that it wasn’t consensual & that is so hard.  Even if you have bruising; he’ll just say you like it rough.  This is why only 2% of rapist see jail bars. 

I can’t stress enough:

“It’s not stranger danger; it’s Uncle Chester the Molester.”

I feel it is harmful to focus women’s attention on only 7% of the problem, while ignoring the overwhelming 93% of how it will statistically actually happen.  

When I argue with a sexist, there’s an inevitable point at which he will call me “sweetheart”. (I like to think of it as shorthand for “you’re winning”.) If I’m really making him feel foolish, he may resort to “bitch”. “Ugly” is the last refuge of the hopelessly destroyed.

I’ve been writing about feminism on the internet long enough that these names don’t really bother me. But nothing is more grating than when a man I don’t know - in comments, Twitter or real life - calls me “Jessie”.

It may seem odd that I’d prefer a curse to a cutesy nickname. Like most things men call women when they want to diminish them, “Jessie” is meant to remind me that no matter what I accomplish – the number of books written, articles published, speeches given – I’m still “just a girl”. But it’s the overly-familiar infantilization that really makes my skin crawl. Very creepy Uncle Chester.

Anything Goes Roxlin/Hartwin AU

I really like musicals okay

Merlin is desperately in love with Roxanne Morton, a London debutante whom he met at a party. So naturally, he’s dismayed when he discovers that she’s engaged to a wealthy English Lord named Harry Hart. Not giving up, he pursues Miss Morton to the SS Kingsman, a luxury cruise liner. Along with him is his close friend and nightclub singer Gary “Eggsy” Unwin, who decides to help Merlin win the lady’s heart. Also on the ship is infamous gangster Richmond Valentine and his accomplice, Gazelle; both are on the run from the police, but once they catch wind of Merlin’s romantic quest, they also decide to help him out- Valentine, ironically, is a romantic himself.

Only, when they catch up to Roxy, she reveals that she is also in love with Merlin, and has been unable to stop thinking about him since the night they met. But she must marry Lord Hart, for reasons she doesn’t share. Merlin is distraught, but Eggsy comes up with the idea to ‘break up’ the marriage, by having Lord Hart caught in a very compromising position- like in bed with a half-naked young man, for example. This is partly to help Merlin, of course, but Eggsy can’t deny that the Lord is well fit for a noble, older bloke. And to his surprise, Harry has also had his eye on Eggsy, so the seduction is fairly easy.

Harry reveals to Eggsy that he doesn’t want to marry Roxy either, but his overbearing uncle, Chester (also on board the ship), is giving him no choice on the matter, though he refuses to tell Harry exactly why he must marry her. Eggsy relays this to Merlin and the others, and they all resolve to figure out the mystery.

Unfortunately, Valentine and Gazelle are found out, and they are thrown in the ship’s brig. Merlin and Eggsy and thrown in as well, since they were accomplices. Roxy gives a letter to Merlin in the brig before the ship lands. Upon reading the letter, Merlin discovers that Roxy’s family’s business is near bankrupt, and the marriage is actually a business merger with the Harts. But Gazelle points out that a businessman on the boat earlier had said that the Morton business was worth millions. They conclude that Harry’s uncle is manipulating them into marrying to get to the Mortons and their business. It’s then decided; they have to stop the wedding.

The four of them aren’t let out until the ship arrives in port, but they manage to escape before the police arrive to take them. They crash the wedding and reveal the plot, and Roxy and Harry are more than happy to call the whole thing off. Happy ending where Merlin and Roxy are finally together, and so are Harry and Eggsy, and Gazelle and Valentine are able to evade the police thanks to their friends, free to roam another day.

The Awakening, my new Klaine AU, will begin on Saturday July 26th (finally!).

Here’s a little preview from the first chapter! Thanks to Brandi for the fantastic cover art!

“God, I can’t believe you’re finally getting married. It’s going to be the wedding of the century,” Rachel clapped her hands together. “I should probably start organizing your bachelor’s party…”

“Please, whatever you do, don’t hire any strippers,” Kurt begged immediately. “They’re so tacky. Let’s just have one of our classic sleepovers and eat cupcakes. I’ll give you and the girls a make-over.”

“Mm, we’ll see…” Rachel whispered mischievously.

TippiTV #Supernatural recap: 11-07 “Plush”

Previously on Supernatural

We met Sheriff Donna Hanscum and her dick ex-husband Doug. Donna beheaded a vampire and made friends with Jody Mills, then ran off together to start an all-woman hunters club in my mind.

Also, Sam Winchester was more scared of clowns than he was just about any other monster he’s ever come across, and that is 100% logical and fine to me because clowns are the worst as all evidence will bear out.

Currently on Supernatural

We start with married couple in suburbia. The obnoxious husband, Stan, complains about his wife’s cooking and then tells her to bring him a beer. Some guy in an oversized rabbit mask shows up and stabs him to death with a beer bottle. The wife screams.

Meanwhile at the bunker, Sam is praying to God.
