An excellent, chilling, sickening piece by Rebecca Solnit on violence against women and its pervasiveness in our world.
“A woman is beaten every nine seconds in this country. Just to be clear: not nine minutes, but nine seconds. It’s the number-one cause of injury to American women; of the two million injured annually, more than half a million of those injuries require medical attention while about 145,000 require overnight hospitalizations, according to the Center for Disease Control, and you don’t want to know about the dentistry needed afterwards. Spouses are also the leading cause of death for pregnant women in the U.S.
“Women worldwide ages 15 through 44 are more likely to die or be maimed because of male violence than because of cancer, malaria, war and traffic accidents combined,” writes Nicholas D. Kristof, one of the few prominent figures to address the issue regularly.”
You don’t want to know about the dentistry needed afterwards.
god i wish there was a way to assassinate a twitter account
what is wrong with you people ugh
This lack of notes is disturbing.
Rape is rape, your gender does not matter and anyone who says otherwise or defends male rape is a rape apologist. PeriodDomestic violence is not gender specific either, you guys this shit needs to stop.
I am an ardent fuck-giver. I wish our culture was one that encouraged male victims to speak out.
Since the last few months have been what seems like a constant barrage of old white Republican politicians telling us what rape is, Jill Filipovic reminds us that this isn’t just a couple of old, misguided gasbags making stupid comments: It’s the GOP platform.
“Underlying the Republican rape comments and actual Republican political goals are a few fundamental convictions: first, women are vessels for childbearing and care-taking; second, women cannot be trusted; and third, women are the property of men.”
GOP VP hopeful Paul Ryan calls rape a “method of conception”
Tom Smith (R-PA), running for Senate, equates conception via rape with conception out of wedlock and suggests we think of how the man will feel if the woman aborts his baby.
It’s become increasingly clear the amount of men in our government who simply think of rape as a minor inconvenience. For a straight, white, virginal Christian woman raped by a big scary stranger, it’s horrible, but for anyone else, it’s like getting your wallet stolen— yes, it sucks that you have to replace your wallet and cancel your credit cards, and it was probably scary at the time, but seriously, just deal with it and move on. And it’s become, yet again, a conversation that ends in What About The Men. Rape is now something that revolves around men and zygotes and leaves the women by the wayside.
We’ve gone through the looking glass here, people.
Eventually a person gets to the point where they can longer withstand the constant blitzkrieg of bullshit. So, Steve King, Todd Akin, and shouty Twitter conservatives: you win. Rape outrage limit reached. I have given this all of my fucks, and the fucks I have given are still not enough fucks. So many more fucks need to be given, and I have exhausted my fuck supply. The fucks are on backorder. Employees are working overtime to restock my fucks, but in the meantime, please accept this 10% off coupon while we wait for the fucks to arrive via FedEx. I’ll be over here, drinking wine from a Pac Man mug and watching cartoons.
