weavemama:

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.

Betsy DeVos announces roll back of Obama-era Title IX sexual assault guidelines

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.

what a nice day to remember that 12 year old girls aren’t fucking sexually mature

And another friendly reminder that 12 years don’t need to wear ‘proper’ clothing so men don’t stare. You shouldn’t be staring in the first place

And yet another friendly reminder that it doesn’t matter if a 12 year old looks or acts “mature for their age”. They’re still children, you sick fucks.

Piping up with a friendly reminder that there is no evidence that 12 has ever really been considered an age of sexual maturity and if you attempt to make it sound like their was you just sound like a pervert.

dashisgone:

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.

Taylor Swift’s testimony is ‘badass.’ It also explains why many sexual abuse survivors stay silent

  • Testifying at trial that radio DJ David Mueller groped her in 2013 — reaching up under her skirt and grabbing “a handful of [her] ass” while she posed for a photo with him — Taylor Swift delivered what many outlets have called “brave” and “badass” responses to a set of questions seemingly designed to shame and discredit her.
  • “I’m not going to let you or your client make me feel like this was my fault, because it isn’t,” she said, according to the New York Times, adding, “I’m being blamed for the unfortunate events of his life that are a product of his decisions. Not mine.” 
  • It makes sense that Swift is now being hailed as a hero for her testimony on Thursday: her answers were excellent. A less talked about — yet just as laudable — aspect of her testimony, though, came when Swift said she wasn’t surprised to hear Mueller call her cold after the fact. Read more (8/11/17)

20 attorneys general pen letter to Betsy DeVos urging her to keep campus sexual assault protections

  • As Education Secretary Betsy DeVos ruminates on possibly dismantling Title IX protections for victims of campus sexual assault, a group of 20 attorneys general are pleading with her to keep current guidelines in place, according to BuzzFeed News.
  • “We are committed to working collaboratively with your Department to address the problem of sexual assault on America’s college campuses,” the attorneys general — from 19 states and D.C., led by Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro and New Mexico Attorney General Hector Balderas — wrote in a letter to DeVos.
  • “But any effort in this area must be deliberate and allow for meaningful input from all stakeholders, and it must focus on the ultimate goal of ensuring that all students are protected from discrimination, including sexual harassment, assault, stalking and domestic violence, under Title IX,” they continued.
