In my job, I have a variety of files to choose to work on. It’s just the nature of the job.

But if one of the files is a Title IX or other sexual assault case, I am instantly wayyyyyy more likely to choose that file.

Because, even though it’s painful and depressing and frustrating to listen to those interviews and testimonies, at least, even in the smallest of ways, I am helping that victim’s case move forward. Hopefully, I am a part of their journey to justice.

BROCK TURNER HAS SUFFERED ENOUGH BECAUSE OF ON…

BROCK TURNER HAS SUFFERED ENOUGH BECAUSE OF ONE TERRIBLE THING HE DID. PEOPLE ARE BEING WORSE THAN HE EVER WAS, THEY THREATEN HIS LIFE, LEAVE HIM SCARED TO BE IN PUBLIC AND PUT HIM IN A BOOK AS THE DEFINITION OF RAPE. DO YOU AGREE? (SORRY FOR CAPS LOCK, I HAVE CATARACTS)

don’t apologize for the caps or your cataracts, that’s fine, you can’t help that, but I will literally vomit on your head for the rest of this mess of a message.

he should be in prison, his “””sentence””” was ridiculously lenient. he is absolutely a definition of rape. i have no issue with that. and i have no sympathy for him.

“Here’s a pretty
unbelievable story: Laurie Holden is an actress who plays Andrea on “The
Walking Dead,” but she isn’t just an actress. Holden also works as a human
rights activist with a group called Operation Underground Railroad. It’s an
organization run by an ex-CIA agent named Tim Ballard that works to take down
unsavory human traffickers and the like. So, Holden and the group went down to
Colombia to try to take down a group of men who were trafficking in underage
prostitutes. Ballard, Holden and co. ingratiated themselves into this group and
set up an elaborate party in an effort to catch these men in the act….” Adam
Pliskin, Elite Daily 

“For months, the
group put together a massive sting operation in cooperation with Colombian
authorities. They each had an elaborate cover story. Ballard’s story was that
he was the best man in a wedding back in the U.S. and was looking to hire
several underage prostitutes for a big bachelor party in Cartagena. The cover
was meant to lure the sex traffickers into a setup so that Ballard and his team
could rescue the girls, many of whom were under 18. … In order for Colombian
officials to prosecute the sex traffickers, they have to catch them exchanging
money for the girls on tape. … Holden’s job was to “keep [the traffickers]
occupied by the pool area while Ballard and the undercover officers worked to
catch the traffickers on tape exchanging money.” Candace Smith and Aristides
Pinedo-Burns, ABC News 

“When the
traffickers agree on camera to to pimp out the underage girls and the money is
exchanged, the cops move in to make the arrests.  During the ordeal Holden works with social
workers to comfort the girls, who fear they’re the ones who will be in trouble
and that they won’t be paid. Holden is clearly heartbroken when interviewed
after the fact. But she should also be extremely proud of her work.” Ian
Cervantes, Complex

saw some uhhhhhh hot takes about sex yesterday

if your partner or anybody else ever insists you NEED sex to have a good relationship and be healthy spiritually just turn around 180 degrees and sprint away bc this is genuinely dangerous rhetoric

Why do feminist think it’s okay for men …

Why do feminist think it’s okay for men to rape little boys but not okay when they do it too girls let me tell you i was a 6 year old boy when an older man sexually abused me why is it okay when they do it too boys I had to be anonymous cause it still haunts me we want to be with you in this war against these racist sexist pig men but you loose people like me when you say all men are rapists cause I was raped by a terrible man my parents trusted as a little boy thanks for your time

i don’t know who you have been interacting with because no feminist i know would ever advocate for anything like what you’re saying. rape is rape, no matter the genders of the perpetrator and victim, and every victim deserves justice. i am so so sorry that you had to endure such horrific abuse and i hope you are able to find the support and help you need. i understand your need to be anonymous, it’s a very difficult and painful topic for a lot of people. if you need, there are a lot of people in the feminist community who can help connect you with resources for survivors, both locally and remotely.

Rape is the only crime on the books for which arguing that the temptation to commit it was too clear and obvious to resist is treated as a defence. For every other crime, we call that a confession.

I’ve gotten more angry asks about this post than I have actual reblogs.
