I hope the porn blogs following me are learning a lot about social justice

i hope all the fuckboys following me are learning a lot about social justice

my fuckboy levels have decreased dramatically over time because of april.

"Sooo.... We're supposed to take advice from Eve Ensler, one of whose most famous written works is about the rape of an underage girl by an adult woman, who later recounts it as "a good rape"? The woman that, with her very flippant statement, has served to erase the rape of lesbian and bisexual women by their female partners? Thanks, but no thanks."

i didn’t even realize that was the woman responsible for the vagina monologues, nor was i aware of that line. i certainly do not endorse the idea of there being such a thing as “a good rape.” not to defend her, but apparently she later removed that part - maybe she realized it was fucked up?

as for the last gif, i didn’t really think about how it could be used to erase or invalidate the experiences/suffering of women who were raped by other women. i don’t really think it was ensler’s intention to do that, but certainly a writer should be aware of the power of rhetoric to shape perceptions/discourse on an issue. personally, i think she was just reducing/simplifying the problem of rape to focus on the fact that men commit 9 out of 10 of these offenses.

her point remains a good one, if amended: it is men who need to take responsibility for ~90% of the rape & sexual violence in this world.

ultimately, everyone is problematic at one time or another & sometimes people say things that come from the right place but fail to recognize all the angles or all points of view. the important thing is that people realize they’ve fucked up, apologize, & then adjust their stance on issues.

i appreciate you calling this out, because i’d probably never have learned about it otherwise.

seriously, fellas..

this is our responsibility. we need to change our behavior & that of our friends. how can we be ok with the continued (escalating!) violence toward the women in our lives?

if someone attacked your sister/mother/daughter you’d all flip your shit, so why should it have to come to that before you take look in the mirror &/or challenge other men about their destructive behaviors?

no one’s perfect (i’m clearly a fuckboy sometimes), but we can’t let that stand in the way of self-analysis & we can’t use that as an excuse to dismiss huge problems within our own ranks. the path to ending rape starts with us, with our friends. let’s look inward & fix this for the sake of all the people we purport to love & care about.

i think many of you would really dig this henry green remix.

you’d also probably dig henry green’s original music, fittingly categorized on soundcloud as “haunting melodic soundscapes of introspection.”

Police continue to make arrests at Ferguson protest.

Part 4.

Take note: The moment people stopped reblogging and tweeting and writing news articles and calling attention to Ferguson, they brought back the armored cars. It is not over. They were waiting for the world to lose interest and knew it would.
