Help Me Bring Rape Culture Awareness Abroad!

Hello tumblr friends!!

So if you’ve been following me, you might know that me and a couple peers have created a successful workshop on rape culture in hopes to raise awareness and activism. 

I plan on taking this workshop and activism abroad! Of course, money is a struggle in itself. I would appreciate any help even if it’s just words of encouragement because this is a huge step for me.

Thanks guys! Here is the link to my funding, want to be my first donator?

Almost EVERYONE tells girls to cover up that shoulder or that “It’s your fault your getting eyed by guys” but seriously?  IT’S NOT OUR FAULT THAT GUYS ARE GETTING DISTRACTED BY THE WAY WE DRESS. IT’S FUCKIN SUMMER AND IT’S FREAKIN HOT. I’M NOT GOING TO BE UNCOMFORTABLE BY  WEARING LONG SLEEVED SWEATERS AND LONG PANTS BECAUSE I DON’T WANT TO BE BLAMED THAT I WAS RAPPED BECUASE IT WAS THE WAY I DRESSED. IT’S NOT OUR FAULT!! SOCIETY KEEPS DEFENDING THESE ACTIONS BY SAYING “boys will be boys” BUT SERIOUSLY? IF GUYS ARE GUYS THEN GIRLS ARE GIRLS!!! INSTEAD OF PRESSURING GIRLS TO COVER UP YOU SHOULD TEACH GUYS TO LEARN TO BE FUCKIN RESPECTFUL AND HAVE SELF CONTROL. 

Blame the Rapists, not the VICTIMS.

SIGNAL BOOST THIS NEWS! Seriously, how come this isn’t all over tumblr? Angelina Jolie presided over the largest ever global anti-rape summit. She is using her celebrity for good. She is addressing rape in wartime and in conflict zones, which is where it is perpetuated on the most massive scale and in which context always has been used as a weapon.

Feminists of tumblr should get behind this woman. Let’s stop the perpetual erasure and trivialization of women in the media through their sexualization and start looking at the work that they do. Her acts here are easily in danger of being eclipsed by her image in the tabloids which is more concerned with her relationship to Brad Pitt and the fact that she is a sex symbol than the important feminist work that she is performing RIGHT NOW. 

I am such a fan of this lady… and she does not deserve to be trivialized for being a woman, a sex symbol, and a celebrity. Here, she is working for social justice for women all over the world. She’s doing what’s right.

I'm 16 and when I was 15 a guy had me sneak out. I was really tired and the last thing I remember was him kissing me and I told him to stop. I honestly don't remember what happened and Idk if ANYTHING did happen. I just know he was violent other times. I'm scared to trust people, I'm confused cause he wouldn't tell me if anything happened. I don't like to be touched, I cry at times. I hate it when people ask me "are you a virgin" cause I honestly question it. My moms religious. What do I do?

Hello there anon! Of course you know the situation more that I do but as far as I can tell, you may be overthinking it. Not in a bad way. I understand where those thoughts can come from but I believe you’re okay. For the most part, in the following day, you would have been able to know if you had sex. Just stay positive, don’t overthink, and don’t let it get to you. As far as the feeling of someone touching you makes you cry, feel free to message me off anon and we can talk about it more in detail !
