No Slut Shaming

My policy, and it should be yours, too.

My policy, and it should be yours, too

Just because someone is sexually promiscuous, even if they truly are by society’s standards or not, does not mean they are deserving of rape or open property for someone to rape. This also does not automatically make them your open target for harassment and torment. Stop the hate.

Real Men Get Consent

More on consent

Actually, this diagram even made me feel better. Why is it that victims are made to feel as if we made the wrong decision, we made poor decisions, made him feel it was okay, let things go too far, wore the wrong outfit, etc? The RAPIST is the one who is wrong, made poor decisions, and acted inappropriately. It is never okay to take advantage, no matter what the girl may say, do, or how she may dress. If she can’t say yes, that means no. If she said yes to one thing, that isn’t saying yes to everything. Women are not property, we have the right to say no. We have every right to expect to be respected. Real men get consent.
