Don’t get attached to moments. Good or bad, they all pass.

The myth the rape is about sex couldn’t be any further from the truth. In reality rape is about power, dominance, and violence. When talking about certain kinds of sociopaths, psychopaths, or any human being, rape is classified similar to people who torture or kill people. Rapists, people who torture, and serial killers who receive pleasure from killing are all classified as sexual sadists. What this means is they receive sexual gratification not from sexual acts, but instead from pain from others or control and power the comes with the acts of rape, torture, and murder. It really is no stretch of the imagination to classify these three acts in the same category. So it really has nothing to do with how low the skirt the women is wearing, or how flirtatious she is. The rapist is solely motivated to enact violence on anyone they feel they are capable of dominating.

Astoundingly awful story of “every day” sexism and racism from @iSmashFizzle.

If you can’t read it here, see this timeline that I put together.

so the nice folks at FCKH8.com decided to take this comic and put it in rainbow font and put their name on it without any source or indication that they didn’t create it. when questioned about crediting the artist, they got pretty sassy and have refused to do anything other than say “we’re looking up the artist” when you can find them by a quick google search of the first line of the poem. fun, right? 

edit: the original artist is aware of this, and has commented on fckh8.com’s facebook page claiming ownership. hopefully this gets fixed soon.

Hey guys, this is regarding my gender comic that FCKH8 decided to lift and plan to put on shirts without consulting me about it. (they also misquoted- it’s “the same respects”, not “most respects”.)

I’d really like for my comic and message to just remain free on the internet until (and if) I plan to make shirts/prints/etc myself.

Now I’m wondering how many other people they have stolen from.

(thanks to butt-punx for the post and signal boost- i really appreciate it)

to add to the fckh8 drama they also said asexuality is not a real identity

What a disgusting company. Profiting off of people being oppressed and also being discriminatory themselves. Nice.
