Things That Cause Rape
Truth, Rape Rapists, So True, Women S Rights, Real Men, Rape Culture, Protest Signs
The prevalence of victim blaming is seen throughout many aspects of our rape culture; the general public, friends and families of rape victims, rape victims themselves, rapist, and the legal system. Questions about what women wear or their past sexual history are NOT relevant in rape cases.

A recent rash of prominently placed op-eds are working to further rape culture. But it's possible to avoid victim-blaming with just a little bit of effort.
From Women’s Rights News. Always an important reminder.
Real men and all the forms they take.
I remember I saw some horrible Rom Com a couple of years ago. There was a scene where the ex-girlfriend assaults the main character while he was sleeping. The new girlfriend dumps him because he was unfaithful, and he needs to apologize for ever for being raped. I mean, was I the only one who thought he was raped, and felt more than a little bit sick?

27 male survivors of sexual assault quoting the people who attacked them.Yes,Men are raped,sexaully assaulted and are victim's/survivors of incest too.Women are the majority of people subjected to these asaaults,but it is important for people to understand that this does happen,because A LOT of people think men can't be raped.

Rush Limbaugh, Invading Poland, Truth, Activism, Feminist, True Stories
Feminazi is a common term that has been used to make feminism more negative. People often refer to feminisms are feminazi because of the stereotypes put out there of feminists being "dykes" or not shaving or being man haters and angry all the time. Feminists just fight for what they believe is right, the female gender to be treated equally
Being treated like human being isn't what that term is used for...some feminists are utter fanatics bent on hate not equality. The term shouldn't be used though because most people have on idea what true evil really is. In a free society we can work things out.
"Feminazi" -because wanting your gender to be treated like human beings is just like invading Poland. Not to mention carrying out the Holocaust.

Rape is NEVER the victim's fault -- get it through your minds. || Stop the victim blaming and shaming, please! -- M
We live in a world of victim blaming culture. And where rape is normalized and disbelieved. I've read a preview to this book and it's an excellent memoir regarding an brave women's experience with sexual assault and the unjust criminal justice system in reporting a rape.
Rape culture keeps women from feeling safe at night because if they're wearing something revealing, people may say she's "asking for it" and if sexual assault were to happen she may not be taken seriously. This is an issue that needs to change. .
Rape culture keeps women from feeling safe at night because if they're wearing something revealing, people may say she's "asking for it" and if sexual assault were to happen she may not be taken seriously. This is an issue that needs to change. Men need to take responsibility for what they do and not place the blame on the victims.
Rape is never the victim's fault. No one "asks" to get raped, it just happens. A woman should be able to wear whatever she wants without being judged. Rapist are the only cause of rape and their are no other factors that add to that. Evil people are simply looking for an excuse to make rape acceptable.
It is a shame that rape culture has turned women into easy targets. Whether or not women are dressed in ways that society considers "provocative," a woman is NEVER asking to be sexually assaulted.
Stop victim blaming and start educating boys and men and hold them accountable for THEIR actions.

"If a rape victim falls short on adhering to any given 'rape prevention tip,' that tip is suddenly construed as being 100% EFFECTIVE against sexual assault, and the victim’s failure to successfully follow the 'rape prevention tip' becomes evidence of zir culpability."
Awesome feminist tumblr. So many good posts. This one is called "On Sexual Assault 'Prevention Tips'". Excerpt: "If a rape victim falls short on adhering to any given 'rape prevention tip,' that tip is suddenly construed as being 100% EFFECTIVE against sexual assault, and the victim’s failure to successfully follow the 'rape prevention tip' becomes evidence of zir culpability."
Michigan High School Chooses To Protect Star Basketball Player Instead Of His Rape Victims
Michigan High School Chooses To Protect Star Basketball Player Instead Of His Rape Victims. The National Women’s Law Center is joining forces with a Michigan-area law firm to file a complaint on behalf of a young woman who was sexually assaulted by one of her HS’s star basketball players. Complaint alleges that HS administrators did nothing to help advocate for the rape victim after she came forward with her story. The principal was more concerned with the rapist's future in college basketball
Michigan protects basketball player rather than his rape victims: rape culture
RAPE CULTURE. VICTIM BLAMING.

You can't always be nice. That's how people take advantage of you. Sometimes you have to set boundaries.
You can't always be nice. Thats how people take advantage of you.. Sometimes you have to set boundaries.. Keep your guard up and observe those who are real, considerate and have manners...
People who are chronic "users" look for people who are "too nice" because they know it will be an easy mark. Learn to set boundaries and say no!
Learning to set boundaries is part of DBT Interpersonal Effectiveness. It's not about being nice or being mean, it's about standing up for yourself and learning that it's okay and your right to say "no".
Halleluia! It is possible to be nice though and still set boundaries at the same time ;) I have no problem setting boundaries anymore!
So true! And it doesn't say be mean, just set boundaries.

Until now i never knew it would. I forgive those really early years of my life. Those early bricks were my foundation. After time, they settled incorrectly. Now i have no choice but to break it all up and rebuild from the start.
And the only reason ill forgive you, is because i have to. Not because i want to. But the good thing is i dont have to forgive you any time soon(:
aftermath of abuse. People don't get it. Not even counselors..Only Jesus Christ understands your pain and Only Jesus Christ can restore you to new life.

Male feminist - and it's the effing truth. If you wouldn't blame a person who got mugged for what happened, why is it okay to say women who are raped shouldn't have dressed provocatively?
"If I got mugged NO ONE would ask me if I was wearing an expensive suit (THINK ABOUT IT)." #amberroseslutwalk #slutwalk #slutshaming #rapeculture #feminism #equality #sexism
Yep. Double standard galore. Why? Because rich men have a right to exist and walk in public. Attractive women do not.
Yeah male feminists! It's the truth, if you wouldn't blame a person who was mugged; why blame a woman who was raped?
think about it: if i got mugged NO ONE would ask me if I was wearing an expensive suit
This is exactly true. Rape should not be a blame game on the victim.
No one would ask me if I was wearing an expensive suit

Whether it’s your hair, clothes, what you have to say, how you feel, what you believe and what you have. You can’t let the judgment of others stop you from being you.

Desmond Tutu was no Sheeple ... and he lives (yet/still/even today) among wolves. The wolves have simply put on new fur. In 1978 Desmond Tutu was appointed general secretary of the South African Council of Churches and became a leading spokesperson for the rights of black South Africans. During the 1980s he played an unrivaled role in drawing national and international attention to the iniquities of apartheid, and in 1984 he won the Nobel Prize for Peace for his efforts.
