There’s this shitty thing that happens when you learn about the reality of racism, sexism and misogyny. You start to hear it from the mouths of your parents, grandparents, friends and siblings and you can’t ignore it anymore but you’ll see how many of them will ignore you when you speak out about it.
I felt so bad for Idina at the Oscars. First, Travolta messes up her name completely and then they had to make the song shorter and faster resulting on her being nervous and that awful scream at the end. Definitely wasn't her night.
yeah, i know :/ she looked so nervous and i didnt really love this perform (but apparently most ppl did idk), but it was still a very nice moment and they won 2 awards anyway lajsskakdldajsjdkd
Two weeks ago a man in France was arrested for raping his daughter. She’d gone to her school counselor and then the police, but they needed “hard evidence.” So, she videotaped her next assault. Her father was eventually arrested. His attorney explained, “There was a period when he was unemployed and in the middle of a divorce. He insists that these acts did not stretch back further than three or four months. His daughter says longer. But everyone should be very careful in what they say.” Because, really, even despite her seeking help, her testimony, her bravery in setting up a webcam to film her father raping her, you really can’t believe what the girl says, can you?
Everyone “knows” this. Even children.
Three years ago, in fly-on-the-wall fashion of parent drivers everywhere, I listened while a 14-year-old girl in the back seat of my car described how angry she was that her parents had stopped allowing her to walk home alone just because a girl in her neighborhood “claimed she was raped.” When I asked her if there was any reason to think the girl’s story was not true, she said, “Girls lie about rape all the time.” She didn’t know the person, she just assumed she was lying…
No one says, “You can’t trust women,” but distrust them we do. College students surveyed revealed that they think up to 50% of their female peers lie when they accuse someone of rape, despite wide-scale evidence and multi-country studies that show the incident of false rape reports to be in the 2%-8% range, pretty much the same as false claims for other crimes. As late as 2003, people jokingly (wink, wink) referred to Philadelphia’s sex crimes unit as “the lying bitch unit.” If an 11-year-old girl told an adult that her father took out a Craigslist ad to find someone to beat and rape her while he watched, as recently actually occurred, what do you think the response would be? Would she need to provide a videotape after the fact?
It goes way beyond sexual assault as well. That’s just the most likely and obvious demonstration of “women are born to lie” myths. Women’s credibility is questioned in the workplace, in courts, by law enforcement, in doctors’ offices, and in our political system. People don’t trust women to be bosses, or pilots, or employees. Pakistan’s controversial Hudood Ordinance still requires a female rape victim to procure four male witnesses to her rape or risk prosecution for adultery. In August, a survey of managers in the United States revealed that they overwhelmingly distrust women who request flextime. It’s notable, of course, that women are trusted to be mothers—the largest pool of undervalued, unpaid, economically crucial labor.

which cities of south america would you visit or have you visited? did you like them? (besides brazil)
First i know you said except brazil but like all cities from the northeast are SO pretty! Like tourists usually go to Rio (wich is a beautiful city, but like even rio the state has nicer places and i’m from rio k) but you dont know the northeast is WONDERFUL it has the most beautiful places i’ve seen in my entire lifeee
and i wanna go to santiago, uruguai ❤️ in general, machu picchu and patagonia (i know it’s not a city but i wanna go there anyway)
What do you think about the current set of female performers on SNL?
i’m gonna be honest, this last year for me has been so busy (disney, college etc etc) i gave up a lot of tv shows, and hm i’m not proud but i stopped watched snl regularly? I’ve seen some eps, like seth’s last episode and stuff like that, but i dont really watch it anymore
ANYWAY i’m rambling i’m not really sure what i think about them from the gifs i’ve seen they’re great
But isn't Ben obsessed with Game of Thrones? Maybe Leslie got it for him. (I've haven't seen this weeks episode yet either)
oh idk i’ve seen a gifset where ben is like sitting on the throne and leslie says something about a spaceship (?) or etv and i dont get it? Like i really thought the show followed a path in which leslie watched got and was a fan? and then she says something as if she’s thinking about star wars and i’m kinda upset bc she’s khaleesi she learned fucking dothraki for god’s sake
(note: i havent seen the ep i could be wrong which i hope i am)
there’s a class representative election going on in my class (duh) and like there’s no one there and i wanted to try but i’m afraid i’m gonna lose to literally no one and idk idk i already feel embarrassed for myself
