To think that some people don’t see a problem with society is disturbing
it’s not just disturbing, it’s fucking scary.
Y’all “rape culture doesn’t exist” preachers can fuck RIGHT off
Women who served in Iraq were more likely to be raped by a fellow soldier than killed by enemy fire.
23-28% of women serving in the military will be sexually assaulted over the course of their service. And those numbers are rising.
Let that sink in.
THIS IS NOT OKAY
This Anna Kendrick Little Mermaid SNL sketch is impossible to find (NBC ran into some legal issues with Disney)… watch while you can!
Today is National Day of Silence. For those that do not know, Day of Silence is an event where the purpose is to make schools safer for students no matter their sexual orientation or gender identity. It is to bring attention to anti-LGBT name calling, bullying, and harassment.
This will be my 6th year participating in Day of Silence, and although I cannot be completely silent today, I will be silent when I can and no excess talking.
I personally was silent for 4 years of my life about being bi-sexual. And since coming out, I have felt better about myself, and only had a few instances of name calling and bullying. I was scared to come out earlier in life because I did not know how people would react and I was afraid of being harassed. That is a problem students, youth, and adults everywhere are still facing.
By participating in Day of Silence, you are showing that you are an ally for those who are afraid to come out, that you will not harass them, and that you will stand by their side.
So please, take a moment, and think to yourself, What are you going to do to end the silence?
Today Everyone Is Gay is recognizing the National Day of Silence alongside all of you who choose to participate.
is this snake fucking serious
like was that actually fucking necessary
