Rape Escape

  • Easy and very effective
  • Requires nothing but your body
  • Includes attack

Very useful to know, pass and share please.

Worth watching

I don’t mean to impose a personal favour on you guys, but I really would like to ask that everyone who follows me reblog this. 

I don’t think I made it very clear but last month I was sexually assaulted by someone who I thought was my friend (I don’t want to talk about it don’t ask), and it’s… really fucked with my head. 

Had I known this a month ago I would have been able to get away

So, essentially, I’m really pleading with you to reblog this so everyone who follows you doesn’t get stuck in the same position I was with no way out. 

I mean again I don’t want the point of this to be my sob story or whatever but if you could reblog this it would seriously mean a lot 

» THIS IS IMPORTANT!!!

I have reblogged this video multiple times - it’s really one of the most practical and simple things I’ve ever seen, I highly encourage you to watch it.

"The way we talk about a subject is the way we think about it. When people call rape, battering, and sexual harassment “women’s issues”—and many people do this without a second thought—they contribute to a broad shifting of responsibility from the male perpetrators of violence to its female victims. This is likely not intentional, but words nonetheless convey subtle but powerful messages. The message to women is that it is their job to prevent—or avoid—sexual and domestic violence, and they should not expect a lot of help from men. The message to men is even more insidious: they need not tune this in. It is women’s burden. As long as you do not assault women yourself, you can pretty much ignore the whole thing.

The simple phrase “women’s issues” eloquently reinforces this point. Guys hear “women’s issues” and not surprisingly think: Hey, that’s stuff’s for girls, for women. I’m not a girl or a woman. It’s not my concern. Generations of men and boys have been conditioned to think about sexism—including gender violence—as something they need only concern themselves with when forced to do so, usually by a woman in their life."

Keep It Simple Stupid

The student president quoted the turtle from Kung Fu Panda in his commencement speech and I’m thinking BEST SPEECH EVER. Then Merle Haggard gets an honorary fine arts doctorate and speaks for less than a minute.

Get off my lawn

Came home from a early walk this morning to find my kitty chasing a chihuahua off his lawn. It was quite amusing.

I wouldn’t mind joining with some biscuits right now.

Fuzzy Bitch is an awesome nickname. As long as it’s not yours.

That is all.

I’m feeling generous today, so I’ll be glad to give away one of my steampunk super heart necklaces free to one person who reblogs this!
The rules are the usual: You can only reblog once, no creating fake accounts. It has to be a reblog; likes do not count. You have to be willing to surrender your address in order for me to mail it to you. And I’ll decide at the end of April who gets the heart. :3 
Edit: Since so many people are asking where they can get one, I thought I’d bring light to the fact that the “source” link will take you to my Etsy shop where you can purchase one, if you’re interested. Thank you guys for all the reblogs. I’m pretty much stunned.

jodiferous asked: Umm, yeah, I'd like to know how you got SO AWESOME? For reals.

An excellent question! But one with no clear answer. Several theories abound. DNA? Environment? Pixie dust? The jury is still out.
