last year, a man was accused of sexually harassing 12 women.
this man thinks that objectifying women as a conversation topic is okay.
this man said that women in the military get raped because of cohabitation.
this man was accused of raping a 13 year old girl back in the 90s.
this man was accused of raping his own ex-wife.
this man once said women need to be treated like shit.
this man is the president of the united states.
it’s officially been a year since that tape leaked of trump bragging about sexually harassing women. it makes me sick to my stomach almost everyone forgot about it to the point where he was able to be president. a man that has absolutely no respect for women and girls was picked to be a “leader” to over 300,000,000 people. never forget how 45 has treated women in the past. never forget how his victims will most likely never get the justice they deserve because their abuser is a man of power. never forget how he views women as nothing but sexual objects. there’s something very sinister about america and its blatant rape culture, and something tells me it’s only gonna get worse.

° Marital rape was legal in this country until 1976 when Nebraska was the first state to outlaw it. South Carolina was the last in 1993.
°In Oklahoma, it’s not considered raping your spouse if there’s not violence involved. Spouses also aren’t included in the clause that says someone can’t consent if they’re unconscious.
°In Ohio, a rape that happens in marriage when the spouses are living together is a lesser charge.
°Researchers estimate that 10 to 14 percent of married or formerly married women have experienced at least one forced sexual assault by a husband or ex, according to the National Online Research Center on Violence Against Women.
°In 30 states, there are still some exemptions given to husbands from rape prosecution. A husband is exempt when he does not have to use force because his wife is vulnerable (e.g., she is mental or physically impaired, asleep, etc.) and is legally unable to consent. Because of the marital contract, a wife’s consent is assumed.
°According to the National Online Research Center on Violence Against Women, marital rape is not restricted to women of any specific age, race, ethnicity, social class or geographic location.
Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos on Thursday announced that the Trump administration is rolling back sexual assault guidelines issued by former President Barack Obama’s administration.“The system established by the prior administration has failed too many students,” DeVos said during a speech at George Mason University in Arlington, Virginia. “That’s why we must do better, because the current approach isn’t working.”In 2011, the Obama administration told colleges and universities that they have an obligation under Title IX to combat sexual harassment and sexual assault on campus. If colleges and universities do not meet that obligation, the Obama administration threatened to pull their federal funding. Read more.
Rape is the only crime I can think of that’s 100% inexcusable. There’s
absolutely no reason for it ever. In any circumstance. You can murder
in self defence, you can steal to help your starving family. Even doing
illegal drugs can really help calm people down.
But rape doesn’t
help anyone except the rapist. And it just baffles me to this day the
way people will excuse rape with, “Well he/she was drunk” or “What was
she wearing?” or “He’s a guy though, he probably enjoyed it.”
it’s the one crime that everyone should find inexcusable and yet it’s the one that people try to justify the most often.
Betsy DeVos is deciding the fat of Obama-era legislation on campus sexual assault — so she met with sexual assault survivors and… men’s rights activists.
