so i took it upon myself to move on a few months back and create a separate account that would let me indulge a little more into my nerdy side. it also allowed me to gain some privacy from some people that i didn’t want to know certain things. but there are so many of you that i loved following and loved having follow me. so with this new year i decided that i will start using this again from time to time.
filling out this application feels like a big step to me
no more community college
i can finally get that bachelors degree i’ve always wanted
mosquitoes, please stay away from me this summer. i’ve had enough of you already. kthanks.
tonight was one of those nights where you’re driving home and you start to think about the person you’d rather be. these next two weeks need to pass as quickly as possible so i can work on that.
so for now i will turn on the etta james station on pandora and have a quiet night to myself.
I don’t know if rape jokes encourage rape culture. I don’t care. You still shouldn’t tell them.
Statistically, if you have told a rape joke to a group of more than five people, one of the people you told it to was a rape survivor, possibly of multiple rapes. They will not necessarily disclose this to you; rape apologism is endemic in society and most rape survivors are cautious about whom they tell. Some may even be too ashamed of their rape to admit it to anyone, or because of rape-minimizing narratives like “men can’t be raped” and “I consented to oral, so I couldn’t have been raped” may not admit it even to themselves. The fact remains: if you’ve told dozens of rape jokes in your life, then you have almost certainly told a joke that minimizes or trivializes rape in front of a survivor.
And if you put as your Facebook status “I totally raped at Halo today” for your two hundred Facebook friends to see, statistically, you have just reminded thirty-three people of one of the worst experiences of their entire lives.
