I was thinking today about Richard Dawkins and his self congratulatory date rape tweet and the way that it creates this dichotomy of ‘assault’ and assault. But the thing is every single girl I know has a story about the boy who wouldn’t stop snapping her bra straps in 8th grade, or losing her virginity because her boyfriend asked so persistently that she felt guilty saying no, or the boy who got her blackout drunk at a party and invited himself into her bed, or giving a blowjob for the first time because the boy she was with said she would if she really liked him, etc

Every single girl I know. We all have that story of non violent assault that we’ve internalized as unimportant. And really, that’s all those comparisons do, they delegitimize everything that isn’t stranger violence and shame women (especially young girls) into thinking they’re over reacting; they normalize harassment, painting it as some kind of adolescent rite of passage instead of the sexual assault that it actually is, and feed directly into rape culture

And you know, I’m a smart girl, I’ve read a lot of feminist theory, but I was still 26 years old before anyone told me that it wasn’t ok, and I’m sure I’m not the only one. So maybe let’s be less concerned with alleviating the guilt of boys who date rape, I mean that’s what this is about right?

richard dawkins deserves a slow death tbh

You serve as a perfect example of Christianity. You wish death and suffering upon anyone who confronts you with actual evidence. It’s an obvious scam that exploits a person’s fear of death and threatens anyone that isn’t gullible enough to buy into your bullshit.

i’m straight up victimized at work by both my coworkers and the oppressive capitalist system that drove me to get a job in the first place

For so long everyone has wanted to hold on to the belief that the United States is a class-free society - that anyone who works hard enough can make it to the top. Few people stop to think that in a class- free society there would be no top.
