Lisa Benson Cartoon from 2014-04-17

Reblogging again because of the truth behind it.

I am a Person that believes the “Teach Men Not to Rape” campaign and the assumption that the default state of Male is Rapist is Feminist Propaganda used to Demonize Male Sexuality and Foment Hatred against Males in General.

the-people-of:

Does this statement apply to you? Reblog it and be counted. More information here.

dotunity asked: "so that it can become more acceptable for men to speak up about such abuses" -- Weren't there feminist protesters at events that spoke about men's issues? How does more feminism help that situation?

mr-cappadocia:

That’s the cognitive disconnect. The schizophrenic nature of the Feminist movement is apparent to anyone who sits back and actually looks at it, but it’s entirely invisible to members of the movement themselves.

Quit using this boy’s trauma to justify your antifeminist crusade. Male privilege is still a thing. The reason she got a light sentencing is because of the idea that men should always want sex. Feminists didn’t start that idea; other men did. 

1. No one mentioned male privilege not being a thing. You’re attacking a point no one made.

2. That may be so, but the fact that judges in the UK are actually legally obligated to give women lighter jail sentences certainly helps. And guess who pushed that? 

3. It doesn’t matter who started the idea; the matter is that the idea is still perpetuated, and despite all the ‘WE WANT EQUALUHTEE’ cries from feminists who claim that they want to get rid of gender roles and stereotypes… feminists largely do nothing about this kind of shit. Funny that… 

4. Other men started that idea? [CITATION NEEDED]

5. Women are just as capable of upholding damaging stereotypes as men. No matter who started it, both men and women are responsible for continuing to feed these stereotypes. 

Also laughing forever at “Quit using this boy’s trauma to justify your antifeminist crusade.”

But when a woman is stoned in the Middle East for being raped, it’s ALL ABOUT WESTERN FEMINISM, right?

Also implying all anti-fems muuuust be boys

If the words:
Retard
Dumb
Stupid
Moron
Idiot
Ignorant
Cause you to immediately think of developmentally disabled people, and not just people acting a fool, then the problem lies within yourself, not with something I just said. I associate none of these words with people who are developmentally disabled, you do. I think that shows who the actual ableist in this situation is.

Hi. As someone who’s learning disabled and a tad slow I wan’t you all to know that if you get offended on my behalf about words like stupid and retard, etc. Then I’m gonna slap you.
OP is right - if you think retarded = developmentally disabled or learning disabled then that’s all on you and it’s insulting. We don’t need you to be offended for us so stfu and stop being a massive pussy. 



I agree with this post, except for one thing: the noun “retard”, as far as I know, stems from the french verb “retarder”, which means “to be late”. Late, as in late in development. Therefore the use of the term to describe developmentally challenged people most likely predates the modern meaning of “obtuse”/”ignorant”. That sets it apart from the rest of the list, which was never really used to describe those people to begin with.
That said, I myself couldn’t care less whether or not you use the word, but if someone calls you out on that, consider the above. Etymological context, yo.

Bringing up the etymology of words is about as useful for an argument as bringing up the dictionary definition of Feminism.
Hardly anybody is going to know that that’s the etymology. And all things considered, the current context of how we use the word is more important than the historical meaning of the word.

A jury Thursday acquitted Alexandru Hossu, a friend of Putnam County District Attorney Adam Levy, of child rape charges in a case that raised questions over Levy’s degree of involvement and spurred a related defamation case.
Hossu, 36, Levy’s former live-in personal trainer, had been jailed a year, accused of twice raping a 13-year-old girl in one night in 2010 at her Brewster home, where he lived while dating her mother.
Hossu, who was represented by Levy’s brother-in-law, Daniel Mentzer, cried and smiled after the verdict was announced in Putnam County Court in Carmel. A Romanian national, he remains in custody because of a federal immigration detainer.
He was acquitted of two counts of first-degree rape, two of second-degree rape and a charge of child endangerment.
"To anyone who watched this trial the verdict was a foregone conclusion," said Mentzer, who represented Hossu along with lawyer Richard Ferrante.
"To have to go through what that man went through is inhuman," Mentzer said. "Where does this man go to get his reputation back?"
Hossu was arrested last March by Putnam County sheriff’s deputies, who Mentzer claimed didn’t investigate the case until Hossu was already in custody. Putnam County Sheriff Donald Smith and Levy have an ongoing feud and Levy later filed a $5 million defamation lawsuit against Smith over statements the sheriff made about the case.
The case attracted significant media attention after Levy, the son of TV’s “Judge Judy” Sheindlin, recused his office but then seemingly tried to influence the defense and reportedly disclosed grand jury information to one of Hossu’s prior lawyers — conduct Westchester County prosecutors deemed “potentially criminal.” Levy also paid tens of thousands of dollars at one point to fund Hossu’s defense. Despite requests by several politicians to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate Levy’s conduct, Gov. Andrew Cuomo took no action.
Levy didn’t attend the trial, but his confidential assistant, Laurie Mainey, sat through most of it and an investigator from his office, Henry Lopez, attended portions of it. Levy’s stepbrother, Gregory Sheindlin, a lawyer and former prosecutor, also sat through most of the trial.
With no forensic evidence, prosecutors were left to rely heavily on the girl’s testimony.
"We were confident in our prosecution of this case as evidenced by the length of the jury’s deliberations and the fact that they were initially deadlocked," said Lucian Chalfen, a spokesman for Westchester District Attorney Janet DiFiore. "We respect their verdict and appreciate their service."
Levy declined comment.
The accuser’s aunt, who testified at the trial, said the teenager was told of the verdict Thursday by a school social worker. The aunt said the teen was likely “very upset” inside but still processing the verdict.
"She’s a mature, intelligent young lady," she said. "She understands the power of reasonable doubt, but it doesn’t change her story."
Juror Debbie Silmon, 57, of Carmel, a coordinator of volunteer services at a psychiatric hospital, said the panel was 10-2 in favor of acquittal Monday, and 11-1 since then. She said one male juror held out, saying he found the teenager credible.
Silmon said jurors used a calendar and phone records to convince the holdout juror and rule out dates the attack could have happened.
"The man is innocent, period," she said. "I have no doubt whatsoever. He was 100 percent innocent. I thought she was a little liar. The sniffling, I think, was an act."
The girl had testified that Hossu choked her and raped her, leaving her in excruciating pain, with blood all over her bed.
The defense, however, had contended the girl’s account was implausible and that she had a number of potential motives to fabricate a story.
Juror Gwen Wilkinson, 32, of Brewster, a footwear buyer, said male jurors were asked during deliberations if they ever had sex for roughly three hours straight.
"They said it’s near impossible," she said.
As for the 17-minute controlled phone call the girl made to Hossu confronting him with the rape allegations as he was being secretly recorded by investigators, Wilkinson said, “I thought he showed he actually cared for the kids” by asking how the girl and her brother had been doing since their mother’s death. Hossu, she said, sounded “absolutely shocked” by the girl’s accusations.
"The jury took it really seriously, as they should have," said juror Bob Foss.
"They gave it the respect this entire case was due. No one took this lightly, in any case, and we worked the process as every one of us was supposed to."

What the actual fuck.



Second that… What the actual fuck

Holy shit. So supposedly he raped her and choked her for 3 hours, leaving blood everywhere and there was still 0 evidence? And he was detained for a year??

False rape accusations don’t happen though! And they certainly don’t ruin people’s lives! No way!

And society always justifies rape, bro, I bet this guy had an official fanclub when people thought he raped that kid, cuz you know society is like that.

Rapists and child molesters never get murdered in jail by inmates because even prison society doesn’t support rape. NNNOPE.

the-unpopular-opinions:

This unpopular opinion speaks for itself.

Yes, because my body is not covered that gives someone else the right to it.You must be fucking joking. No. No, no, fuck off, no.It doesn’t matter what I’m wearing or if I’m not wearing anything. That doesn’t give anyone else rights to my body. It’s really fucking simple. It’s always my body and I always have the final say. You cannot justify rape with nudity. Men are not wild animals. I do not believe every single man on earth is a rapist/potential rapist and that is EXACTLY what this picture is saying.

No it’s not. Same way that it is not saying that everyone is a mugger. The thing is that if you purposely expose something that bad people want, you are, at least slightly, increasing the odds of bad things happening to you. This is not saying all men are rapists, this is not saying rape is justifiable. This is saying that walking around naked doesn’t help either. There are people who are gonna see your body, some of them will be attracted to it, and one of those, if you’re unlucky, might be a rapist. "I will do it anyway, no one can tell me what to do". That’s right. Do whatever you want, you’re only screwing your self over anyway. As for me, I will continue with advice as it can potentially save a person from being raped. Because you know, that’s the whole fucking point of it. People you paint as rape apologists are only trying to help prevent a rape from happening.

If you were trying to prevent rape you’d spand more time addressing the actual problem. RAPISTS. What I do or don’t do means nothing. I shouldn’t have to walk around scared - EVEN THOUGH I DON’T WALK AROUND NAKED. This conversation isn’t about me, personally. It’s about the fact that naked bodies are everywhere. If simply being naked were the cause of rape, the rates of rape would be MUCH higher than they already are. This is ridiculous. I shouldn’t have to explain that my body is my own and I should have the right to do whatever I please without fear of being violated. College guys are allowed to run around streaking without that fear. What if one of them were raped? Would everyone say it was his fault for running around naked? No. It is the rapists fault because rape is a crime WHICH HE COMMITTED. The victim is just that. A victim. It doesn’t matter what he or she was wearing; rape is always rape.& YES, this picture is saying that all men are potential rapists. It’s saying “don’t walk around naked because some man might see you and not be able to control the yearning in his loins” “some guy might take advantage of you” I SHOULDN’T HAVE TO LIVE IN FEAR OF MEN. MEN ARE NOT EVIL. This picture says otherwise. You and this picture both are saying it would be my fault if I just happen to be half naked and raped at the sane time. That it’s my responsibility to keep my body covered at the risk of provoking some man. FUCK THAT. How about men learn some fucking boundaries, how about that?

Stop strawmanning you moron.1) Never said it’s not rape.2) Never said it’s your fault.3) I EXPlICITLY said you HAVE the freedom of doing what you want.You give me a huge ass response about how it is still rape, not your fault and I shouldn’t police bodies or whatever??!! What are you even on??And what do you expect ME to do about rapists? Want me to put my vigilante mask on, walk around the streets and ask people “are you a rapist?” and kill them if they say yes? Are you insane? Rape, same as murder and robbery has existed since the dawn of time, and still exists. We haven’t figured out how to stop crime, so the best we can do is AVOID it. I get it, is not your fault, doesn’t mean that you can’t do something to avoid it. Normally I wouldn’t explain the exact same point twice, but let’s see if you actually read this time: No, not me and not the picture are saying all men are rapists. Rapists are human beings, sometimes they are horny and aroused and other times they are not. If you show rapists revealing skin and clothes you might get them aroused and since they are immoral they might rape you. Who is a rapist? We don’t fucking know, that’s why it is not smart to arouse everyone and just hope there are no criminals out there. Plus I’ve never even said men I think??, neither did the picture, and roughly 40%+ of rapists are female, so that’s your own fucking feminist mind telling you that.I don’t know where you live, but in the hot weather of Orlando, I’ve only seen two shirtless guys in two years (without counting the pool and beach). So I call your bluff of men can just be shirtless anywhere. If they are in a street shirtless people will look at em weird. If they go into a restaurant they will get kicked out or asked to put a shirt on. And in discos and shit, women wear clothes way more revealing than men. So I think you and slutwalks are both full of bullshit.

Uh huh, whatever you say.

Response of the century. Anyway, what I say matters little. What matters more is that YOU actually put thought into it. Since it could potentially decrease your chances of being raped, I guess it is worth a shot, isn’t it?Because if I get robbed, it is indeed the robber’s fault. But if people ask me why I was wearing a rolex while walking through a ghetto at 4am, I shouldn’t be surprised or offended. If rape happens to you, I have no reason to blame you. Blame what? A victim of it’s own crime? What for? Who’s winning?? If I tell you it could potentially help you, I’m trying that NOT to happen. Why would I want a bad thing like that to happen to you? I don’t even fucking know you. The fact that you assume most men don’t care or blame you when theyre trying to help you shows very well what you and feminism thinks of men.

I never said most men don’t care because I know better. You’re now putting words into my mouth - probably based on the fact that I’m a feminist considering that little comment “shows very well what you and feminism thinks of men” I’m dating a man. I am friends with many men. The only fact here is that you know absolutely nothing about me and that is really fucking obvious.I take no stance against people based on gender or lack of gender. I think very highly of PEOPLE regardless. I was immediately done with this conversation when you insulted my intelligence for no fucking reason at all. Have a good fucking day or whatever. I really do not give a fuck anymore; this will be my last comment.

Oh you think very highly of me, that’s why you thought I was a victim blamer? Or why you took like 3 points I made and argued the opposite of them? Or is your high regard of men why you naturally assumed that when we were talking about rapists we were talking about men?See, I had reasons to insult your intelligence. You can’t seem to understand that there are things that you actually do to avoid and lower the chances of almost every crime there is. That is some pretty simple shit that even 5yr olds can understand.

Btw: 1. The stance you took, as I understood it, blames victims; I apologize if that wasn’t your intention. Your comment that the above picture isn’t justifying rape led me to believe that. Because it kinda sorta fucking does.2. I don’t assume “rapist” equals “man”; I am more threatened by men which is why the wording is the way it is. Not only that, I thought we were discussing male on female crime? Is that not what was happening? 3. I never disagreed with the fact that you can do things to reduce your chances of being a victim of a crime. I did, however, state that even if you don’t do anything, that doesn’t make the crime any more your fault considering someone else committed it. If you have a yard sale and someone comes and steals all of your things, that doesn’t make the crime any more your fault just because it was all on display.You can justify it any way you want; you still look like an asshole. I never insulted you and was very civil with you. I only expected the same amount of respect. and THAT’S some pretty simple shit that even 5 year olds understand.

Alright. Wear what you want. While you’re at it, don’t lock the doors or windows in your house, teach robbers not to rob you. I can’t be blaming anyone if I’m fucking trying to prevent it from even happening in the fist place.And nope, kids can actually be the biggest assholes out there sometimes, because they are still learning social behaviors and empathy. When you tell them not to walk away with strangers though, they get it. That is not childism and we are not blaming kids for being kidnapped, they actually understand that they can do at least something to lower the possibility of that happening. If you think you can’t do absolutely anything to help prevent a crime from happening to you, idk what to tell you tbh.

I hate to say it, but you’re wasting your breath man; people like that could step out into traffic and claim they weren’t asking to be hit. Because they’re entitled and stupid. It’s not worth arguing with someone who’s determined to be a victim.

I really do not give a fuck anymore; this will be my last comment.

Oh you think very highly of me, that’s why you thought I was a victim blamer? Or why you took like 3 points I made and argued the opposite of them?

Or is your high regard of men why you naturally assumed that when we were talking about rapists we were talking about men?

See, I had reasons to insult your intelligence. You can’t seem to understand that there are things that you actually do to avoid and lower the chances of almost every crime there is. That is some pretty simple shit that even 5yr olds can understand.

Btw: 1. The stance you took, as I understood it, blames victims; I apologize if that wasn’t your intention. Your comment that the above picture isn’t justifying rape led me to believe that. Because it kinda sorta fucking does.

2. I don’t assume “rapist” equals “man”; I am more threatened by men which is why the wording is the way it is. Not only that, I thought we were discussing male on female crime? Is that not what was happening?

3. I never disagreed with the fact that you can do things to reduce your chances of being a victim of a crime. I did, however, state that even if you don’t do anything, that doesn’t make the crime any more your fault considering someone else committed it.

If you have a yard sale and someone comes and steals all of your things, that doesn’t make the crime any more your fault just because it was all on display.

You can justify it any way you want; you still look like an asshole. I never insulted you and was very civil with you. I only expected the same amount of respect. and THAT’S some pretty simple shit that even 5 year olds understand.

Alright. Wear what you want. While you’re at it, don’t lock the doors or windows in your house, teach robbers not to rob you.

I can’t be blaming anyone if I’m fucking trying to prevent it from even happening in the fist place.

And nope, kids can actually be the biggest assholes out there sometimes, because they are still learning social behaviors and empathy. When you tell them not to walk away with strangers though, they get it. That is not childism and we are not blaming kids for being kidnapped, they actually understand that they can do at least something to lower the possibility of that happening.

If you think you can’t do absolutely anything to help prevent a crime from happening to you, idk what to tell you tbh.

I hate to say it, but you’re wasting your breath man; people like that could step out into traffic and claim they weren’t asking to be hit.

Because they’re entitled and stupid. It’s not worth arguing with someone who’s determined to be a victim.

Oh my goodness! What a mail day. I FINALLY have a cat skull, thanks to the seldomseenfox! I’ve got her in a jar for degreasing before I begin the whitening process :)
