facebooksexism:

Hello! Would you please do me a favor and take my rape culture survey? It’s anonymous, and I’m trying to obtain responses from a more diverse audience than students from my small town. Please and thank you! https://docs.google.com/a/mygccs.com/forms/d/1AHKaf3pGza9AvMHKzKg76CI0ac-Y5yF_zoejG4MuvQk/viewform

Everyone in America should know that an actual candidate for U.S. Senate said this about women who are raped. 
Please share this.

From what I understand from using my brain, this man is a legitimate idiot. Vote, people.
Donate to his opponent, Sen. Claire McCaskill.

Reminds me of the mediaeval belief that women couldn’t conceive unless they orgasmed, and that meant that if a woman got pregnant then it wasn’t “”“real rape”“” because she enjoyed it…

I just can’t even.
As far as I can tell this is a real quote, and he’s trying to say he “mis-spoke” when called out on it.

Do I have to say it?  THIS IS WHY YOU NEED TO VOTE!

Brave was really, really awful. It is abuse enabling and victim blaming. This movie was obviously written by abusers. It is NOT what the previews lead you to believe. It is not a “progressive” or “feminist” movie with a…

here’s my sex+ guide to having safe, pleasurable butt sex!  leave your taboos at the door :P

remember:

-butt sex should not hurt.
-lube! lube!  more lube!
-never go straight from anus to vag
-only do it if you want to
-everyone has a butt!  anal play is not inherently “gay”

(Sex+: Laci’s Guide to BUTT SEX)

This is one of the big problems with sex-positivity. Laci Green says she received an “alarming amount of messages about people being pressured into anal sex”. I think we all know that by “people”, she means women. Her solution is to make a video giving advice on how to have anal sex. How does that help those women? “Just don’t do it if you don’t want to”. No shit, Laci, I’m sure that idea had already occurred to those women. It’s easy to tell women to just not do things they’re not comfortable with, but that doesn’t do anything about the GUYS PRESSURING THEM TO DO THOSE THINGS. They’re still in the same boat they were before, trying to figure out what to do with a guy who wants to fuck her butt in a world that says women will die alone if they don’t let guys fuck their butts. There’s not a moment in this video where she is reprimanding these guys or telling em’ to knock it off, because OMG THAT MIGHT HURT THEIR FEELINGS AND MAKE THEM FEEL ASHAMED OF THEIR SEXUAL DESIRES. On the first fucking page of Youtube comments, there’s a guy saying that he’s “too big for her butt”, so he’s gonna buy her “anal relaxers”. That makes perfect sense if you’re a misogynist! Her body is rejecting his penetration despite their best efforts, so he will numb her ass instead so she can’t feel the pain and tearing that comes with forcing your penis inside a rectum that is not receptive to penetration.

P.S. putting numbing gels and relaxers on/in someone’s butt before anal play is a huge NO-NO. It’s very dangerous for the aforementioned reasons. You need to be able to feel pain to make sure you’re not injuring yourself. This is safe anal sex 101, and I wish I wasn’t so well-versed in this doodoo. No pun intended.

Fucking thank you Eli. I’ve had this problem with her for a while but didn’t quite know how to articulate it. She’s far too passive. Her videos all make sense if you are in a loving open relationship with someone who’s not a douche. Her videos all seem like the perfect Ta-da solution FOR A PERFECT WORLD. The sex+ attitude excuses a lot of things that are fucked up purely because they are sexual in nature, and sexuality is not to be shamed. This attitude leaves no room to call out misogyny and rapey situations. Tbh, men don’t need any more encouragement to want to try buttsex. They don’t feel shamed for it, the porn industry fixed that problem a long time ago.

Talk to me of Survivor spaces.

My current space is not understanding why saying gay = bad is a bad thing.  I’m trying, DEAR LORD I’M TRYING. Contacted all the other admins, on my like 6th email to the guy who emailed me back.

Where do you go to talk to other survivors?
