y’all should preemptively block tumblr user so-rapeable, and you should do it without looking at their blog

Ten rape prevention tips:

1. Don’t put drugs in women’s drinks.

2. When you see a woman walking by herself, leave her alone.

3. If you pull over to help a woman whose car has broken down, remember not to rape her.

4. If you are in an elevator and a woman gets in, don’t rape her.

5. When you encounter a woman who is asleep, the safest course of action is to not rape her.

6. Never creep into a woman’s home through an unlocked door or window, or spring out at her from between parked cars, or rape her.

7. Remember, people go to the laundry room to do their laundry. Do not attempt to molest someone who is alone in a laundry room.

8. Use the Buddy System! If it is inconvenient for you to stop yourself from raping women, ask a trusted friend to accompany you at all times.

9. Carry a rape whistle. If you find that you are about to rape someone, blow the whistle until someone comes to stop you.

10. Don’t forget: Honesty is the best policy. When asking a woman out on a date, don’t pretend that you are interested in her as a person; tell her straight up that you expect to be raping her later. If you don’t communicate your intentions, the woman may take it as a sign that you do not plan to rape her.

Yo, pre-emptive warning

selfcareafterrape:

to go ahead and block too-lost-2-be-found.

They’re calling survivors whores and attention seekers and just.. throwing a giant temper tantrum that I don’t have time to deal with tonight. and y’all don’t need to deal with that shit.

The biggest thing is to remember that Survivors are still people. I know that rape is a hard thing to talk about. I know that sometimes it feels awkward, but the important thing is to remember that your friend is still your friend- and they just need you to be patient and care.

About a year ago I was in a high school program that let me get college classes. I met a guy and we became friends until he started touching me under the table in class. I reported him and he's still there. I had to drop out because I was afraid.

If you are in the USA, your school is probably in violation of Title IX.

For more information on Title IX, click here.

On a personal note, though, I am so sorry that happened to you. It is absolutely awful that you had to drop out of something that could benefit you because of this asshole. It is so unjust that we have to live in fear and alter our lifestyles because there are so many disgusting people in the world.
