From CNN: List: States where rape is most common 
“Rape is least frequent (or is least frequently reported) in New Jersey. The state with the second-highest rate of reported rape, behind Alaska, is South Dakota, with a rate of 70 per 100,000.”

#(points to native populations in south dakota and alaska)   #(points to rate of sexual assault against native women)   #(points angrily) (via bringinglexiback)


(map of Native American and Alaskan Native populations in 2008)



Comparing these two maps is chilling.
I’d also like to point out, for any of my friends who don’t know, that assaults against Native women are primarily perpetrated by white men.

‘Men’s Rights’ Groups Are Spamming Occidental College With Hundreds Of False Rape Reports

think-progress:

400 false reports in 36 hours.

Despite the fears fueling “men’s rights” supporters, false rape reports are very rare. Just 2 to 8 percent of reported rapes are based on false claims, and the women who file false claims often receive punishments that are far worse than the consequences for actual rapists. For instance, at Occidental College, some students who have been charged with rape have allegedly received punishments as light as being assigned a five-page book report.”

"

Instead of wallowing in injustice, let’s finally wake up from the delusion that we have any more time to waste. Rape culture kills. Rehtaeh Parsons is dead and we are in a state of emergency.

Organize your neighborhood or school against rape culture: run consent education workshops and recruit participants to pledge their stance against violence. March, demonstrate, to publicly prove to all that those who inflict violence on others will not be supported or included by your community. Every time a publication runs a piece promoting rape culture, write a letter in response. Reject slut-shaming and victim-blaming of all forms. Loudly. Model respect for others’ bodily autonomy and stand up for your own in everyday situations to promote a culture of consent. Intervene if you see a dangerous situation developing, and teach others to do the same. Combat the transmission of rape culture from one generation to the next: teach kids to be better than we are. Don’t invite rapists to your parties (I can’t believe I even have to say that, but I do). Make sure survivors in your area have somewhere to turn for justice and support, and to stop their rapists from re-offending. If this resource doesn’t exist, create it. Refuse to tolerate speech that promotes rape; speak up even–no, especially–when to do so would be rude. Listen to a survivor when no one else will.

This is so clutch.

Cheerleader must compensate school that told her to clap 'rapist'

Even if you didn’t know about private prisons and rates of black incarceration and prison rape and the war on drugs and the death penalty and so many other things, you’d read this article and say, “Oh, our entire legal system needs a complete overhaul, this has failed spectacularly.”

"We’ve had an opportunity to review the facts based on what was given to the police service at the time," he told reporters Monday. "We’re satisfied — more than satisfied with the actions taken by the officers."

And Greg Evans’ Luann takes a hard line against women being slutty cockteases responsible for their own rapes. Way to go, asshole! Here’s where to get in touch with his syndicate.

"But I did want to ask about the way she got pregnant — at the party in the first issue of Buffy Season 9, after Buffy became black-out drunk. Her behavior at that party has already bothered some fans, and to learn she got pregnant there, and doesn’t know by whom, will bother some fans even more, especially those who want Buffy to be, well, more responsible."

— HOW COULD SOMEONE BE SO IRRESPONSIBLE AS TO BE RAPED? Good question, Entertainment Weekly.

APE IN A CAPE: Someone Asked...

gailsimone:

…so here we go.

One of my big problems with Watchmen is how stupidly the near-rape is handled. And it’s EPIC stupid.

It’s full of every dumbass cliche there is, and unfortunately, this was common in work of the time.

We have:

Slut Shaming, check.

Woman falls in love with her rapist, check.

This is basically why I have a knee-jerk response to the issue of how great Alan Moore is.

"This is not an invitation to rape me" campaign

feministnoise:

TW: rape

veronicasoledad:

bonanzajellybean:

veronicasoledad:

ummmmmm, that second picture ……..

um nothing. making out with someone doesn’t guarantee that you’re going to sleep with them and if you don’t give consent, that’s rape.

They chose the wrrroooonnnggg picture because her hands are telling a different story.

She could give him a blow job while humming The Battle Hymn of the Republic, he still doesn’t get to fuck her without her enthusiastic consent.

As usual, feministnoise is right, but also (equally importantly) does anyone want to join my Google+ circle of “Guys into receiving BJs while the person giving us a BJ hums The Battle Hymn of the Republic?” Everyone, right?
