What the fuck …..
I saw this and it broke my heart..
I don’t really have words for this. This hurt to the core of my being.
My heart just sank.
This makes me so sad.
it took me two reads to understand this and then I burst into tears.
…Why do people suck?
It took me two seconds to understand this. I will never not reblog this. Everyone should do the same.
… This makes me want to turn into an angry amazon and cut off some penises. Wouldn’t accomplish anything, I’m aware. But it would make me feel like some stupid people might not reproduce.
I saw a post about mothers crying that had over six million notes. Why the fuck doesn’t this have just as many? One of my best friends was raped. He told her that she was gay because she hadn’t had a guy fuck her properly. There’s no excuse for rape, and there’s no excuse for people who say this shit about/to rape victims.
I may be a guy, but I’m a feminist. Feminism isn’t just about supporting women. It’s about supporting equality — no matter what race, religion, sexuality, or gender you are. No woman should be talked down to like this. But the saddest thing about rape? It’s never seen as a tragedy to the general public. There’s always some sort of justification for rape, and it’s sickening.
And I know I include rape in my role plays, but I do it because I don’t romanticize it. I know what rape is. It’s a filthy, disgusting, power-hungry thing. It’s not sexy. It never has been, and it never will be.
So fuck anyone who supports rape, and fuck anyone who made a comment like this to any man or woman. No one should be thankful for this shit. No one.
It disgusts me that this has even been said, and that this doesn’t have more notes.
Why the fuck would you tell that to someone?
Welcome to the life of a Fat Chick. Who would rape one of us, right? We should be lucky to get some action, fat cows that we are. One more subgroup (cf gay males, straight males, trans* individuals) that under-reports rapes because of additional stigmas on top of the violation they’ve suffered.
I literally feel sick. What the hell is wrong with the world that this even happens? What the hell are those people thinking?!
I can’t even begin to find the words to describe my feelings right now.
I think it goes without saying, rape is bad and is not something to be taken lightly or made fun of, etc. etc. But if one more person asks me if I was sexually abused I’m going to punch them in the face.
First, it’s a rude question. Just because rape and sexual assault and abuse are the topic of discussion on CNN does not mean it gets to be the topic of discussion at a dinner party. Second, it’s none of your business. People choose to work in different fields for different reasons and not all of them have been sexually abused.
Ugh I’m sorry people suck hun. :[

Reddit Refusing To Remove Popular Subpages That Promote Harmful Behavior
I’m writing in an attempt to bring awareness to a current petition going on trying to enforce Reddit to actually act on their own User Agreement and remove all their pages (subreddits) that do not follow these guidelines.
“You agree not to use any obscene, indecent or offensive language… [material must not be] defamatory, abusive, bullying, harassing, racist, hateful, or violent….further agree not to use any sexually suggestive language…” - taken from Reddits User Agreement
Unfortunately right now Reddit is ignoring their own rules and letting pages like the following exist with little to absolutely no moderation:
These all exist on Reddit~ one of the most popular social networking sites that has had 34 MILLION UNIQUE VISITORS. Reddit gets around 1.8 billion page views every month. These subreddits are not that unknown either. If you go through the top subreddits on Reddit you will find almost every single one of these within the first 10-20 pages. This is simply something that everyone that uses Reddit, including their own moderating team, turn a blind eye too.
Recently one of the most popular subreddits on Reddit “creepshots” that was dedicated to users taking suggestive pictures of woman without their consent and putting it online without their knowledge was taken down. Users of this subreddit were known for posting pictures of underage girls, a teacher was even fired from taking pictures of his students and posting it on creepshots. This subreddit was deleted by the creator of creepshots because someone was blackmailing him and threatening to expose his identity. It was not taken down by Redditors moderators even after all the media backlash and arrests made that have come from Creepshots.
Related reading on the awfulness that existed in creepshots that was allowed to be there by Reddit if you are not convinced by my words alone:Obviously, a lot of bad came from creepshots. Was this all really worth leaving it up for? Can we now learn from creepshots that getting like minded people talking about taking advantage of/raping/and even murdering is only going to lead to worse actions and encouragement of individuals to do harm to others.for more examples of the TERRIBLE BEHAVIOR and related news articles about said behavior on these subreddits please visit: http://predditor.tumblr.com/
I tried to make a masterpost because people DO NOT SEEM TO CARE ABOUT THIS and they really SHOULD. PLEASE. PLEASE help spread this.
They keep fucking talking like I am about to fucking cry. No fuck that I am crying please just make them stop…
I hate people I am so fucking triggered right now.

Reddit.com is a social website that allows its user to share and discuss content such as videos, photos, articles, websites, and so on.
Reddit is massively popular (http://blog.reddit.com/2012/01/2-billion-beyond.html), especially with young people (http://en.reddit.com/r/misc/comments/nevz9/results_of_the_reddit_demographics_survey_in_pie/).
Reddit is split into subcommunities known as “subreddits,” meaning that while reddit exists as a website, it consists of the sum of its subcommunities. People can subscribe to each community and participate by sharing and commenting.
Unfortunately, the reddit community as a whole also harbors and caters to pedophiles, distributors of child pornography, rapists, peeping Toms, and sex offenders.
Last fall, Anderson Cooper aired a report exposing the child pornography hosted on the site, ultimately leading to the largest subreddit devoted to it being shut down. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VuMdQRRLoYg&feature=related http://www.reddit.com/r/jailbait
Dozens of subreddits took its place.
Reddit users, as well as people in the media, have criticized Reddit’s permissive attitude towards child exploitation. Unfortunately, while admins didn’t ban sexualized images of children on paper until last February (http://nymag.com/daily/intel/2012/02/policy-shift-reddit-bans-child-pornography.html), the rule remains unenforced, indicating that they are more interested in shielding themselves from bad press than protecting innocent kids.
A list of “jailbait” (child porn) forums that are currently on reddit:
Some of these forums are hidden and invite only which makes it impossible to know how many actually exist.
The owners of reddit know there is active trading of child porn on their forums and refuse to do anything about it. Any reports are deleted and ignored. Further, Reddit’s cofounder simply dismisses the issue and blames the exploited children whose pictures are being traded: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OXZYvrue1BE
Included in the Anderson Cooper report was the statement by Reddit General Manager Erik Martin which defends the child pornography remaining on the site: “We’re a free speech site and the cost of that is there’s offensive stuff on there … Once we start taking down some things we find offensive, then we’re no longer a free speech site and no longer a platform for everyone. We’re exerting editorial control and that’s not what we are.” http://nymag.com/daily/intel/2012/02/policy-shift-reddit-bans-child-pornography.html
The former leader of the child pornography rings, Violentacrez, is often in direct contact with the owners of the site. Erik Martin (aka hueypriest) went so far as to warn Violentacrez before reluctantly making the announcement last February. http://pastebin.com/eWhyDXCH
(4:03:13 PM) hueypriest: want to give you a heads up
(4:04:00 PM) hueypriest: we’re making a policy change regarding jailbait type content. Don’t really have a choice.
Reddit also has subreddits which publish images of women’s and underage girls’ private areas, including “upskirt” and “downblouse” pictures, without the knowledge or consent of their subjects. The users of these subreddits trade tips on how to stalk and photograph women and minors and encourage each other to go out and take more such pictures.
A list of these forums currently on Reddit include:
A majority of these images are of girls in high school classroom settings.
Creepshots’ FAQ states:
“Creepshots are CANDID. If a person is posing for and/or aware that a picture is being taken, then it ceases to be candid and thus is no longer a creepshot. A creepshot captures the natural, raw sexiness of the subject without their vain attempts at putting on a show for the camera. That is the essence of the creepshot, that is what makes a true creepshot worth the effort and that is why this sub-reddit exists.”
One user, called SFJohnny, secretly video tapes himself raping and beating hundreds of women and girls, and shares them on reddit. http://i.imgur.com/1Hkpt.png
Not only is this all of this disgusting, it’s illegal as per the Video Voyeurism Act of 2004.
Whoever, in the special maritime and territorial jurisdiction of the United States, has the intent to capture an image of a private area of an individual without their consent, and knowingly does so under circumstances in which the individual has a reasonable expectation of privacy, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both.
Other forums are explicitly devoted to filming sexual assaults and sharing them on reddit as pornography for other users. These include:
Sick to your stomach yet? Here’s more awful Reddit things:
- A pedophile’s confession -http://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/mz0au/iama_man_who_at_24_met_a_14_yr_old_girl_and_lost/
- Thousands of rapists being supported by the community -http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2012/jul/29/rapist-confessions-reddit
- A subreddit called “seduction” devoted to teaching men how to rape women
- A subreddit called “Incest” devoted to child molestation
- A subreddit called “Pics of Dead Kids”
