I cant, im done, I give up
This is why we look at you like a bunch of toothless yokels, Northern Wisconsin.
Oh My God, that poor little girl, to be commented on by a grown-ass man after already being raped? Jesus Christ.
I don’t want to have children at this point simply because they don’t deserve to be brought into this shitty fucking world.
[TW SLUT SHAMING, BULLYING, MISOGYNY]
A 15-year-old Tottenville High School studentwho committed suicide yesterday afternoonat the Huguenot Staten Island Railway station was apparently the victim of ceaseless verbal abuse from classmates that followed her right up to the moment she jumped in front of a subway train.
Friends of Felicia Garcia said she was on receiving end of regular invective barrages, particularly from football players who harassed her over a past relationship with one of the school’s athletes.
“This poor girl was called a slut. She was teased on Facebook,” a senior named Victoria told theNew York Post.
Garcia, a foster child whose parents allegedly passed away, would often complain about her progressively worsening situation on Twitter and Instagram. On Monday, two days before she took her own life, Garcia posted one final tweet: “I can’t, I’m done, I give up.”
Some students who were on the train platform with Garcia yesterday said the football players were still taunting her right up to the end, hurling “sexually explicit jeers.”
When the train arrived, Garcia reportedly said “Finally it’s here,” before leaping backwards onto the tracks.
“I hope the football team feels guilty for what they did to her,” said Garcia’s friend, 15-year-old Stephanie Imparato. “They were torturing her. How can you go through life being verbally assaulted like that? These guys are cruel and malicious.”
The NYPD is said to be investigating claims that bullying played a central role in Garcia’s suicide.
The same train station was the site of another teen suicide just over two years ago.
I just, I need someone to explain to me how you grow up, run for office, & repeat this in public. Like I’m 2.
Freshman Rep. Roger Rivard (R-Rice Lake) in December discussed a case with the Chetek Alert newspaper in which a 17-year-old high school senior was charged with sexual assault for having sex with an underage girl in the school’s band room. The newspaper quoted him as saying his father warned him, “Some girls rape easy” - meaning after the fact they can change what they say about whether sex was consensual. On Wednesday, Rivard told the Journal Sentinel the article did not provide full context of his comments and that his father’s exact words had been slightly different from how they appeared in the Chetek Alert.
He told the Journal Sentinel that his father had advised him not to have premarital sex, and he took that seriously. “He also told me one thing, ‘If you do (have premarital sex), just remember, consensual sex can turn into rape in an awful hurry,’ ” Rivard said. “Because all of a sudden a young lady gets pregnant and the parents are madder than a wet hen and she’s not going to say, ‘Oh, yeah, I was part of the program.’ All that she has to say or the parents have to say is it was rape because she’s underage. And he just said, ‘Remember, Roger, if you go down that road, some girls,’ he said, ‘they rape so easy.’
"What the whole genesis of it was, it was advice to me, telling me, ‘If you’re going to go down that road, you may have consensual sex that night and then the next morning it may be rape.’ So the way he said it was, ‘Just remember, Roger, some girls, they rape so easy. It may be rape the next morning.’ "So it’s been kind of taken out of context."
Of course he back pedaled after the fact, but the context he claims is missing? It’s right there, and it is rooted in rape culture. People keep telling me the Republican Party isn’t just the province of wealthy clueless white men. I don’t believe it.
I really fucking hate it when white people are like “well most white people aren’t racist.”
like fuck you.
The reason you think most white people aren’t racist is because you’re NOT A FUCKING TARGET FOR WHITE PEOPLE’S RACISM.
I have heard the argument that “because I grew up in an area predominantly white, racism wasn’t an issue. Black people were just…normal. Really.”
No, bitch. It’s because there wasn’t as much opportunity to be racist.
And while we’re at it, the whole pro-men’s rights argument of “most men aren’t rapists/douchebags/creepers”?
Yeah, fuck you.
Because most men are not motherfucking trying to get you in bed.
Why do you think you’re so fucking homophobic? Is it because you think most gay men would want you in bed?
Why is it that somehow, that’s logical, but it’s not logical for me to say “motherfucker, do not touch my body when I do not want to be touched. I will not smile at your smarmy, bed-getting compliments.”
Dude, the gay man was just SITTING NEXT TO YOU and you motherfucking freaked. out.
basically, what I am trying to say:
Unless you are the target of a specific type of bigotry, there is no fucking way you can be an accurate judge re: the accuracy of said bigotry committed by a social demographic.
Because your sample size is just motherfucking small as fuck.
You have no right to your own time and space the moment a man comes and talks to you.
You have no right to leisure time
You have no right to your own personal space.
All of you belong to men. T
I got a lot of messages in my inbox about my MRA posts the other day. Several of them brought up the issue of men who are raped by women.
So, ok, let’s talk about rape, sexism, and whatnot.
We’ll start with a quiz:
Which one teaches that men are incapable of being raped?
- Institutionalized sexism backed up by society through generations of tradition, culture, and laws
Answer: Number 1.
See, it’s sexism that teaches that men are incapable of being raped because it’s sexism that teaches us that men always want sex and are ruled by their physical desires. One of the reasons that male rape victims have a hard time talking about what happened to them is because when they do, they are not taken seriously.
Look at cases where older women in positions of authority ( teachers, bosses, etc. ) take advantage of the men/boys they are supposed to be supervising ( students, employees, etc. ). When these stories come out I usually see comments from lots of dudes along the lines of, “Man, I wish my teacher back in jr. high had tried to fuck me!” “Why is this guy complaining? He hit the jackpot!” “This isn’t rape, this is awesome!”
Even other men are oblivious to the fact that they are being hurt by sexism. They are being taught that they can’t be raped because men are inherently sexual all the time and are always happy to receive sexual attention. Sexism teaches us that all men would be happy to have a woman force herself onto them. Sexism teaches us that men cannot be abused or be victims, because sexism teaches us that these things don’t happen to men.
Feminism does not teach this. Feminism teaches us that consent needs to be given often and enthusiastically by all parties involved. Feminism teaches that men are capable of not being ruled by their erections and sexual desires and therefore teaches not only that men are capable of not raping people, but also that they can be victims as well.
So for all of those people who want to discuss this issue? You need to understand and accept that the root of the problem is not feminism, “reverse sexism”, or misandry ( Which isn’t really thing because we do not live in a society where women have power privilege over men which leads to men being disenfranchised, devalued, viewed as lesser,and denied equal rights and opportunity.). I cannot take you seriously or have an honest discussion with you about this topic if you cannot first acknowledge that all rape is, at it’s very core, a problem caused by institutionalized sexism and misogyny.
This is why I hate the term “Men’s Rights Activism” being used when discussing this issue. Because it shifts the focus away from the real problem. If you really want to fight for male victims of rape and sexual abuse, then you need to be working with feminists, WOC, trans* individuals and not against them. You are not an MRA if you want to stop people from being raped. You are a Victim’s Rights Activist, because the issue of men being raped is not a separate issue from women and trans* individuals being raped. They are caused by the same thing: Sexism and misogyny.
