this guy pulled out his dick in front of like 5 billion feminist protestors holy shit
Some context for the idiots claiming the women are overreacting:
This occurred at a Slut Walk. For those not familiar with it, the Slut Walk is basically a peaceful protest seeking to eliminate the rape apologism so prevalent in society. The basis is that no woman is “asking for it,” with “it” being rape. It’s not a feminist protest; it’s a human rights protest.
Many of the protesters, as you can probably imagine, have dealt with sexual harassment or rape in their own lives. Many of them have structured their daily activities to avoid being raped. The gathering is supposed to be a place for them to feel empowered and able to recover in the company of those who understand what they’ve been through or who will not blame them.
Nobody at a Slut Walk will tell a survivor that it’s her fault. They will not ask what she was wearing to provoke her attacker. Nobody will say she had too much to drink. Nobody will tell the men in the group that they are inherently rapists themselves, and nobody will tell a male survivor that his experience “wasn’t really rape.”
Then, this fellow comes along. He sees this gathering of survivors and their supporters, and to him, it’s a joke. He sees feminazis. He sees girls who are taking “a bit of fun” too seriously. And what does he do? He exposes himself to this group of survivors and supporters - some of whom are, in fact, underage.
He sexually harasses literally hundreds of women in one act. Aside from public indecency, there was cruel intent in his actions. He wanted to make them uncomfortable. He wanted to “put them in their place.” Other photos from this event show him flipping the protesters off and laughing at their anger.
And there are still people defending his actions. There are those who still feel like these women were asking for itand that they deserved to be harassed for trying to claim they weren’t. There are those who feel that women should be taught a lesson this way, and they applaud this man’s actions.
So no, he didn’t pull out his dick in front of feminist protesters. He harassed dozens - if not hundreds - of rape survivors. The reaction to his actions alone outline the purpose of the Slut Walk.
For those of you still doubting whether what he did was wrong (and I do wonder if there’s something wrong with you, if you have doubts), let me give you an analogous situation. Imagine a gathering of black civil rights activists. Imagine Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X, Rosa Parks, and all their colleagues gathered together to demonstrate that being black did not make them lesser people. That being black and living in the South did not mean they were “asking” to be the target of hate crimes.
And at this gathering, a white man decides he should teach them a lesson by pointedly hanging a noose from the nearest tree and laughing at their anger. And other white men, laughing along with him, commend him for taking these activists down a peg.
That’s what happened here. It’s not an “OMG, I can’t believe he did that!” moment. It’s an “OMG, there are people who think this is okay” moment. And the fact is, it’s not. It never will be. And that’s the take home message of this ridiculous rant I’ve written up.
And this is why we still need feminism.
this made me cry holy shit
That was hands down one of the most well-written and beautiful responses I have had the pleasure to read. Thank you
wrote saturday’s drabble to beyonce’s heaven and i’m crying now goodbye
hey guys! so, i’m away for a while to celebrate easter with my family, so i won’t be that active on tumblr anymore. the drabbles, however, will continue. today’s theme is seeking solace. although i can’t guarantee that the theme is explicit in the drabble.
the link is here. i hope you guys enjoy it!
yeah, soon. fifth harmony soon, most likely. i’ll be out traveling for the next two weeks with hardly any time for writing, but i’ve usually found that the more pressed with time i am, the more i do. so, who knows. i mean, i do have half of the chapter done already, so.
hi omg you’re dumb AND THE PHONE ISNT WORKING GOD DAMN IT I COULDNT GET IT FIXED TODAY YOULL HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL LIKE SUNDAY/MONDAY
hey guys! so i totally forgot to post the drabble yesterday, so i posted two today! the themes are lightand darkwhich go conveniently good together and kinda have a common idea, and they’re here and here, respectively.
i hope you enjoy them!
shit just remembered i didn’t post a drabble today ok tomorrow there’ll be two, if i have my computer with me
the amount of weight camila lost is, and i think it will always be, such a shock. but i honestly don’t believe it’s bad, or that she’s alarmingly, sick-looking skinny. she’s just really thin (with an ass outta this world but let’s not get into that).
so this answer kinda snowballed and i would put it under a read more but i can’t bc mobile so beware, a mess of lauren feelings/discussing follows after this paragraph. you’ve been warned.
and yes, the lauren thing. it’s not even that people get too hung up on everything she says, ven if they do, it’s on what they focus and how they read it. i’m not gonna lie and say that, once i thought a lot more about the ask thing, it was kinda rude. calling camren a delusion is kinda offensive, even if it might not seem so to her (she’s probably not a shipper and doesn’t /get/ it like camila, which doesn’t exactly excuse her ((thinking before posting is like an always rule)) but it does make some of her actions understandable). the whole point is that people don’t try to understand where she’s coming from - they just throw the rocks. o m g she didn’t reply to the lana vid fan, she’s so rude! ever consider she might not know who posted that video? it’s basically viral in the harmonizer twitter & tumblr fandom, must be hard to figure out who got it. or wow she’s confused by us that’s so rude when she answered simple “nope! you just confuse me” (quoted almost verbatim). i just don’t see where the issue’s at, you know?
she’s on twitter answering fans who send her nice pics and art stuff and being all passionate about that and retweeting photos and going wow you’re so good at photo taking and interacting /positvely/ with fans and people are complaining that she gets confused by the fandom, when even people in the fandom get confused too? it’s just beyond my comprehension.
i don’t understand why no one ever focus on lauren’s good replies to the fans, it’s always about “omg how rude was she that one time three days ago???” when there are a lot of cute and thankful and respectful answers before and after the semi-rude ones?
Everyone who reblogs this will get the title of a book to read based on their bio/posts.
Everyone. I mean it.
THIS IS THE BEST POST
I HAVE EVER SEEN
they really do mean everyone
i mean, i guess if you’re discounting the obvious marriage to some celebrities that come to mind, you could say that.
