Telepathic Communication Between Hobos
Twelve Steps to Creating a Rape Culture
Step 1: Tell girls they exist solely for male pleasure.
Step 2: Tell boys that the more sex they have and girls they exploit, the more masculine they are.
Step 3: Tell girls they can't actually have sex before marriage or they are unpure, unloveable, and equatable to a chewed-up wad of gum.
Step 4: Tell boys that they cannot control or make choices about their own sexual urges.
Step 5: Never mention or give accurate information about consent.
Step 6: Never mention or give accurate information about contraception.
Step 7: Call sexually active girls "sluts".
Step 8: Call sexually active boys "players".
Step 9: Blame girls for getting pregnant or infected with an STI.
Step 10: Blame girls when they get raped.
Step 11: Remind boys that they aren't fully responsible for their actions.
Step 12: Deny rape culture exists.

'if straight men like fucking women in the ass why don't they just fuck men?'

Finally, a brilliant response to a dumb question.

Females grow pubic hair

Not all labias are symmetrical

Big clitorises are not unnatural

Vaginal secretions exist outside of sexual arousal

These secretions have a smell

Some more pungent than others

The female reproductive system is not dirty

The female body can be hairy and a bit smelly and it will appear different for everyone

And that’s okay

Also, the color of your genitals/thighs can often be darker than the rest of your bod!! All those waxed and bleached labias and assholes in porn are lies, don’t be fooled. 

Want to Un-Learn Your Socialized Niceness and Reinforce your Assertiveness?

Practice By Using the Following Phrases When the Opportunity Arrises:

"I’m not interested."

"(Please) Leave me alone."

"I’d rather you not."

"That doesn’t interest me at all."

"You need to stop."

"No."

"That’s not what I said."

"I don’t owe you/anyone an explanation."

"That’s too personal."

"I would like some privacy."

"That doesn’t work for me."

"I’d like to be by myself."

"I’m going to leave now."

These words and phrases might evoke thoughts of reacting to someone bringing unwanted sexual advances. But how can we expect girls and women to be able to say no in such extreme circumstances when we’ve been socialized to avoid confrontation in such “small” circumstances as when a man is talking us when we’d rather be left alone?

You can practice exercising and nurturing your assertiveness (and confidence) by incorporating phrases like this in your day-to-day life.

I was thinking of this today, because whenever any women had to leave the workshops to run to the restroom, they apologized, and also apologized before asking any questions. I noticed this and made it a point not to say “I’m sorry” before asking my question, and even then, it was so hard not to.

Mentally ill people are not the problem. Inaccessible, unaffordable health care is the problem. Stigma is the problem. Lack of treatment is a problem. Lack of understanding is the problem. Lack of compassion is the problem. Not taking people seriously is the problem. Lack of honest conversation and open dialogue is a problem. Using jails as a housing facility for mentally ill persons is a problem. Do you understand me?

A little table to how to get rid of all that negative self-talk. We have to learn look at the good in situations too, instead of dwelling on things we can’t change- because you know what? We may not be able to change what is happening but we CAN change how we view it!

Interesting how we’re always hearing how shameful and irresponsible it is to be a teen mom.

But we never hear the same messages directed at teen dads.

Or even the words “teen dad”.

It’s almost like society demonizes women’s sexuality and sexual choices while absolving men of all sexual responsibility and judgement.
