Unpopular opinion time.

I think the whole, “teach rapists not to rape” thing is really REALLY misguided. Everyone knows rape is wrong. They know it is a crime. You can’t teach people not to rape any more than you can teach people not to murder, or rob people.

It IS NOT victim blaming to give…

I agree that in this cruel world many of the non-sociopaths normal college football players (for example) know that rape is wrong but still do it so teaching rape is wrong is no longer effective but the overarching issue with being taught not to get raped is that most of it is on the premise that you don’t provoke it by wearing skimpy clothing and getting drunk. That is the subtext of the message not there are terrible people conditioned by a lifetime of patriarchy or matriarchy that teaches that this sick act is power struggle to assert dominance, now because we know no matter how many times we tell not to rape it is still an unheard message resulting in horrific sexual violence, therefore we want protection in other form i.e. the buddy system but not messages such as what to wear how much to drink as if it would be their fault if they went naked to a bar

Tumblr where more people are upset about a FAKE story about a girl being sexually assaulted then they are by a REAL story of a group of teenage girls RAPING AN AUTISTIC BOY!

Yesterday my mom posted a picture on Facebook of my 5 year old brother Sam wearing a pair of shoes he picked out for his first day of preschool.She explained to him in the store that they were really made for girls. Sam then told her that he didn’t care and that “ninjas can wear pink shoes too.”Sam went to preschool and got several compliments on his new shoes. Not one kid said anything negative toward him about it.
However, my mom received about 20 comments on the photo from various family members saying how “wrong” it is and how “things like this will affect him socially” and, put most eloquently by my great aunt, “that shit will turn him gay.”
My mom then deleted the photo and told Sam that he can wear whatever he wants to preschool, that it’s his decision. If he wants to wear pink shoes, he can wear pink shoes.
Sam then explained to her that he didn’t like them because they were pink, he liked them because they were “made out of zebras” and zebras are his favorite animal :)
What does it say about society when a group of adults could stand to take a lesson in humanity from a class of preschoolers?

Words cannot express how happy this makes me.
