I was just talking about this with my mother. We, sadly, live in a society that blames the victim. She let herself get too drunk. If she dresses like that she was "asking for it". It's her fault for walking alone at night in THAT neighborhood. It makes me sick as a person. Women S, Human Rights, Dress, Feminism, Rape Culture, Girl Power, Feminist, Rape Victim

Stop sharia law

Stop sharia law and the Muslim Brotherhood. They're not accepted here in America! Take your stupid sharia laws back to your crappy Islamic country! Women should be free, not slaves!
Sharia law and the Muslim Brotherhood. Women are covered, can't drive, honor killings are legal, child brides are legal, etc.
Stop sharia law and the Muslim Brotherhood. If Iranian women would have fought back in 1970 today they would be seen as equals not property. What's OUR EXCUSE for not fighting? We SEE what our FUTURE will be like. STOP SHARIA LAW IN THE USA! Keep your RIGHTS! (2015)
Stop sharia law and the Muslim Brotherhood. THIS IS WHAT MINDLESS RELIGIONS AND STUPID PEOPLE CAN DO!
Iran 1970 vs. Iran 2009 - women in school -- This was going around Facebook and I found it quite interesting. I have no idea where these photos were taken.
Stop sharia law. MODERN HOLOCAUST. Islam, NOT a region of peace, a religion of wickedness.
Iran 1970 Iran 2009. A clear example for the need to separate religion and government.
Stop sharia law.. So sad
♀ Rape is Rape. Redefining Rape is evil. Using terms like non-forcible rape equate to a pro-rape stance. VOTE.

Brave women fight the rape culture: This is from the slut walk. One of the arguments is that girls ask for rape because they wear slutty clothes, short skirts, tight, low-cut tops. This girl is an example of the fact that rape victims can look like anyone, you, me, this girl. Rapists. Dont. Discriminate.
One of the most real, heart wrenching visuals on victim blaming I've ever seen. Rape culture people.

I love the strength this girl is portraying; I mean think about how hard it was for her to stand up and do things that would remind her of what she went through. Don't blame the victims of these crimes; R is R.

This Comic Perfectly Captures How Feminism Helps Everyone!! Click to see the full thing! I love this!
A comic artist known as Rasenth wants to set the record straight on sexism. Rasenth, a 25-year-old based in Japan, has created a comic showing how sexism is hurtful to everyone -- and reminding us that we can only overcome it by working together.
This comic perfectly captures the sexism that exists in our society today. Something that everyone knows it exists, but it's rarely talked about. For some, they don't want to acknowledge it.
I thought this comic was useful for reminding us of different forms of sexism that are normalized in our society. My hope is that the more we are aware of these subtle ways sexism occurs that we can be more aware of it and take steps to control it. I thought the 3rd strip was a poignant way to explain the victim blaming aspect of sexual assault for women as well.
Sexism goes both ways. Feminism helps both. - Imgur [click through for the full comic]

I love the feminism but I equally love that they added a same-sex couple in there. Rape happens to men too.
The only thing this needs to be perfect is that it should include when the woman is the rapist because it does happen and it's important to let victims of a female rapist know it's ok to speak up.
These are amazing! We need more of these everywhere. THIS is what society should be seeing, not misguided advice that supports rape culture.
Men can do the right thing, and portraying them as creatures driven, purely, by their biological desires is so wrong and unfair to all the men who actually use their brains.
This is what a REAL rape prevention campaign looks like. #rapeculture

Atheism, Religion, God is Imaginary, Children, Child Abuse, Rape, Women, Bigotry, Sexism, MIsogyny. Apparently, these baby girls are asking for it. Saudi cleric calls for baby girls to fully veil their faces to protect against sexual assault. "Rape culture: This is what happens when you tell women what to wear but don't tell men not to rape."
A Saudi cleric has called for all female babies to be fully covered by wearing the face veil, commonly known as the burka, citing reports of little girls being sexually molested. Apparently now even babies are "asking for it." really?? fucking pigs...
These people are pigs. Who threatens to rape a baby girl bc they cannot control themselves at the sight of her face? These "men" all like goats and young boys anyhow. So it's more like they want to hide them.
What is wrong with the males in that culture? Are they so obsessed with virgins that it doesn't matter if they're babies? Are those girls to be killed like older rape victims?
Absolutely uncalled for....thank God I live in America....poor sweet beautiful innocent baby girls....
If Saudi clerics feel baby girls need to veil their faces in order to protect them from being raped, perhaps the problem isn't the baby girls.
"Rape culture: This is what happens when you tell women what to wear but don't tell men not to rape." And, oh my, how will the rapists be able to pick out the girl babies then?
Omg this is getting in your face ridiculous! And yet people still just take it. Wow
How are little girls sexually attraction to anyone other than a pediaphile?
"My rapist doesn't know he's a rapist. You taught him it wasn't his fault." When society constantly tells women they are to blame for being raped because of what they were wearing/drinking/doing, rapists hear that message too...and don't think they're doing anything wrong.

D.C. SlutWalk 2011 http://dcslutwalk.org/ Hope I get to participate at some point in the slut walk!!!
Brave Girl! Basically sums up rape culture in a nutshell. Don't let yourself fall into this trap of society.
The rapist is someone you know most of the time and not some stranger. This girl was raped by her ex-boyfriend and gives very good points on how society blames her because she "asked for it." She definitely did not asked to be raped! Why does our society blame the women? No one would ever ask for such a cruel thing. A social change such as the slut walk is encouraging women to speak up about being raped because they are not alone.
This kinda stuff makes me soooo mad. No matter WHAT...rape is NEVER a girls fault. At ALL. it is all on the guy for being such a lowlife disgusting hog piece of scum. How dare society make it out to be that "maybe if the girl didnt dress or act a certain way it wouldnt have happened." Complete bullcrap. Every psychotic sicko who rapes a woman can burn in hell. And anyone who believes it was the girls fault can follow right behind them.

[PREORDER] 'Feminism is the Radical Notion' Charity Tank Top Quote by Cheris Kramarae - Juliette Said
This T shirt is defining what feminism is because there is a lot of discussion that discredits feminism entirely, or describes it as something that it isn't. This puts feminism in simple terms that someone might be able to grasp better than what they might hear from the media. Even so, some feminists would disagree with this definition of feminism, and would say that it is much more.
The irony that the style of shirt is wife beater. Still want it! [PREORDER] 'Feminism is the Radical Notion' Charity Tank Top
Feminism is the radical notion that women are people. Let's talk about that dirty F-word that people like to avoid: "feminism". But why? There's nothing wrong with being a feminist! Feminism is founded on a belief of equality, it's as easy as that. Why run from it? Show off your feminist pride! Shirts are unisex, women may want to order a size down.

Stand up for what's right. Be strong when others least expect it. Fight battles worth fighting for. Live for equality. Most people who don't know a lot about feminism wouldn't classify themselves as a feminist, but if you think women are strong, independent, and just as worthy as men then you most definitely are a feminist.

People feel removed from sexism, "I'm not a sexist, but I'm not a feminist." They think there's this fuzzy middle ground. There's no fuzzy middle ground. You either believe that women are people or you don't. It's that simple. - Joss Whedon at Equality Now #feminism #equality
You either believe that women are people or you don't. Either you're a sexist or a feminist. There is no middle ground
That's nice, but Joss Whedon is a fucking tool and all the people crazy about his 'feminism' really need to research him.
Being a feminist means you accept a woman is a human being and as such they deserve human rights and deserve to be represented in society and in art as such. If you don't accept and believe this you are sexist. Joss is saying that there is no middle ground and we all must pick between sexist and feminism. This is not a false equivalence. This is a reasoned and accurate argument.
Joss Whedon -- Just one more reason to follow this man to the ends of the earth and beyond!
Every time I see a quote by this man, I fall more in love. Thank you, Joss Whedon

This goes to show that it is the fact that we live in a rape culture, is part of the problem. Not everyone who is raped is raped because of their clothes. That is just an excuse. Living in a rape culture has made the idea to rape not sound bad and made it in a sense okay.
