girls must protect girls im not sticking around for more girl hate, call someone out for shaming a girl for a clearly misogynistic reason, tell young girls they’re worth everything in the world, educate them, girls support girls 2k14

Honestly this is so important, do this!!!

honestly if you dont think like, the tumblr feminist scene, with all the occasionalyl cheesy kawaii-aesthetic misandry art, hasn’t had an impact on anyone at all like

Charda Gregory abducted, humiliated, violated, restrained, scalped and tortured. 
If this were reversed, with black police officers who were sworn to uphold peace and justice but instead were documented victimizing a white woman (who was already a victim), this news would have trumped the Olympics!

Truncated version: drugged at a party, abducted to a motel, wakes up during unwanted sexual violation in a motel room full of strangers, fights like hell to escape, motel employee calls the authorities, she gets arrested for destroying motel property and it just gets worst from there.

Every officer who participated in it and even those who witnessed it and did nothing should be punished but instead they just fired the woman?
No rape kit, no police report on the people inside the motel room, no investigation of her claims, no accountability for missing motel entry records, no video from the motel but she gets detained for fourteen days?

(Btw, when did your tax dollars begin purchasing Abu Ghraib type water boarding chairs?)

My God, my God!

Well. That just destroyed the last shred of hope I had for this country.

“Just so everyone is aware, there is a bunch of misleading info being spread around re: ALS research - the “27%” figure is based on previous years’ annual funding; furthermore, the remainder goes to improving the quality of life of those suffering from ALS. Given that the annual funding is approximately 16M, that’s just over 4M spent on decreasing their suffering. It isn’t greed, it’s a lack of money.”Shut up already.

The ALS Association has a 4-star rating from Charity Watchdog. 
And the next time you start to complain about a charity either a) working on multiple fronts (because that’s what ALSA does—both seeking a cure and helping people suffering now) or b) daring to have administration expenses—let’s see how long you can last, much less tackle a cause, without printer paper and an internet connection. 

As someone who has watched a family member die from a neuro-degenerative disease; funding to develop better wheelchairs and bedsore creams is *just* as important as funding research to cure the disease itself…

A friend of mine posted an update from one of HER friends to FB earlier.  Her dad has ALS.  The ALS foundation came out to see if they could put in a ramp for his wheelchair, but they couldn’t afford it because of the kind of ramp he needed for the kind of house they had.
This week they called back and said hey, the thing is, we suddenly have a bunch of money, so we’re coming out to build that ramp.  And they did.  She posted pics.
So if you feel like bitching about the ice bucket challenge…reconsider.

This is fucking infuriating.

No, what’s infuriating is women who make false rape accusations

^

No. Literally, this is fucking infuriating. How long did you think this shit would get passed around before someone handed it back to you on a silver platter?
Let’s talk false rape allegations, okay? You wanna go big or go home? The estimated percentage of false rape allegations is 2%-8% of all reported rapes. Let that sink in.
Now, a few points.
The process of reporting a rape is fucking hell. Do you think most women would seriously put themselves through that if they had nothing to actually report??
Even women who were truly, legitimately raped have been put down as “false rape accusations”. It happens a fair lot more than you think. (Warning for graphic depictions of violent sexual assault and resulting treatment by law enforcement in the link.)
Seriously. Read this entire goddamn piece and every single hyperlink and source if you want to talk false rape allegations instead of spouting bullshit.
Here’s an article I found written by a man on false rape allegations. It’s full of disgusting language and casual sexism/misogyny. He cites old studies without even linking to them and blows his statistics way out of proportion. He literally says “I’ll take the word of one man I trust over a dozen corrupt and career-climbing academics” and I dunno about you but I wouldn’t trust this guy at all after saying that.
I’m not gonna waste my time tearing down his stupid article but in the very same section entitled “women receive no punishment for false rape allegations” he cites “Ashleigh Loder, who spent just six months in jail for a false rape accusation.”
Yeah, let’s not forget the Steubenville Rape Case, where the rapist got one year in juvie for rape itself.
"The Definition of Rape Is Subjective". Listen. Listen to this. The definition of rape is the absence of consistent and enthusiastic “yes”. Dubious or coerced consent is still fucking rape. Are these really the guys you want speaking for you?? Really?? These are the guys defining and writing about “false rape” for other guys.
Anyway, I’m done with this trash article.
Additionally:
Please keep in mind how many rapes are not reported. Your percentage of estimated false rape accusations would be even lower if more actual rapes were reported. Which they aren’t. Why? Well, that brings me to my next point.
Rape culture. That’s right, kiddos, there is a culture around rape, and it’s pretty much targeted towards women.
What makes rape and false rape accusations different besides statistics? There is no false rape accusation “culture”.
False rape accusations are actions of an individual and are not purported and promoted and supported and encouraged by an at-large culture. Rape fucking is.
Here’s another thing.

This graphic is from a year ago and is described as follows.
The above graphic, passed along by the Huffington Post’s Laura Bassett, was put together by the Enliven Project using data from Department of Justice’s National Crime Victimization Survey and FBI reports. It drives home extremely well the fact that false rape accusations are exceedingly rare, despite what media reports might suggest. Almost as rare are cases when rapists actually go to jail.
 Update: Rape statistics are notoriously hard to collect, and Amanda Marcotte has a compelling critique of the methods used here, which Enliven describes in more detail here. So while the phenomena described here are real (and Marcotte argues that, if anything, the chart exaggerates the number of false accusations), be aware that the exact numbers are subject to dispute.
Bottom line?
You, my friend, attempted to deliberately make false rape allegations seem a lot more commonplace than they actually are.
The majority of us are too busy being terrified of being raped to bother with this bullshit. How dare you try to insinuate otherwise. How fucking dare you.
How dare you take these statistics (or better yet not even do your research) and think “I’m going to try to make women feel like shit for feeling like their fear of rape is one of the more important issues out there”.
How. Fucking. Dare you.
And I KNOW that’s what you did. How?? Because the OP’s graphic is a fucking offensive rip off of/parody of/shot at something feminists and rape-battlers created because they were sick and goddamn tired of being told how to avoid being raped.

Rape is an act of violence and control. To compare false rape allegations— cultureless and fucking RARE and ISOLATED INCIDENTS— to rape itself is beyond insulting and shitty and the actions of an asshole and you should feel fucking ashamed.
Disclaimer because I know some people will try to say this: Yes, I know false rape allegations happen. I know women threaten them. Probably some men, too. I also know men and NB/trans individuals are raped, as well. These are all terrible truths but none of them detract from anything that I just talked about.
And you’re welcome to fucking fight me on this.
