I just did a google image search for a specific picture of -~a world map~- and thanks to Google’s ‘best guess’ the second hit was for “This Is How Easy Girls All Over the World Are, Allegedly.”
It linked to an article criticizing some douche who made a rating system for countries where girls are “very easy to bang” through “very hard to bang.” Apparently I can’t even look for a map of the earth without being reminded of sexism.
um excuse you y’all forgot daenarys’ first time with khal drogo, which in the books is a study in “enthusiastic consent” and in the show is a classic case of partner rape that dani cries through.
i can’t with this show’s fuckery
4.5% of the men in the United States is an incredibly high number – that translates into over six million men.
If you added up every US citizen who was officially unemployed or looking for work in 2001, that would be less than the total number of rapists.
If you added up every US citizen who is Jewish, that would still be less than the total number of rapists.
If you added up every teenage boy who had any sort of job – an afterschool job, a summer job, working full-time after dropping out, including all of those – you’d still have over a million fewer people then the total number of rapists.
There are twice as many rapists in the USA as there are single mothers.
For every drunk driver who is in a fatal accident this year, there are over 500 rapists.
If you take every doctor and nurse in the United States; and you added them to every librarian, every cashier, every cop, every postal clerk, and every bank teller in the whole country; you still wouldn’t have as many people as the number of rapists in the United States.
(Think of that a second – think of how often, in your daily life, you’ve seen cops and cashiers and all those other folks. Odds are, you’ve run into rapists more often than that).
To paraphrase Tim Wise: In short, “only” 4.5% of the male population is a lot of people, so that even by the most optimistic assessment of how many men are rapists, there are literally millions out there who not only would but have raped a woman. When combined with those who are less vicious – those who haven’t raped, but would be willing to in the right circumstances, and those who would make excuses for why other men rape, it becomes clear just how real a widespread a problem rape and rape-supportive attitudes are among men today."
Also: why you shouldn’t give people shit for seeing every male stranger as a potential rapist.
Right…so what you’re saying is…a text (which, let’s be honest, the guy could have sent to himself from her phone if he was determined to do so) is a binding contract that means sex is going to happen. Even if she changes her mind later, ol’ dude has The Text so it wasn’t rape. Case Closed.
Oh, and the best part: The op-ed was written by a woman.
