Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images scribbledsilence: A woman came forward and pointed out her assaulter because she believed that it was her civic duty.A woman came forward with her allegations after years of getting therapy for the trauma she had experienced as a child.A woman came forward despite how scared she was to face her assaulter in front of a nation.A woman came forward and made a testament in front of a committee as the whole world watch, despite the hate and death threats she was getting.A woman came forward and spoke up about her assault, about what her accuser had done in detail, and had thousands upon thousands of people standing by her. Supporting her. Believing her.And yet,many people still did not listen.many people still called her a liar.many people still threatened her.many people still supported her abuser.many people still believed the word of a man over the word of a woman. Of a victim.Next time you think men are the victims and women have everything to gain by speaking up about their assault, please explain to me when you have ever seen that to be the case.All I see is that a women spoke up about her sexual assault, and yet she was pushed aside and ignored as her abuser was granted a lifetime position in the highest court in the country.All I see is an abuser has been appointed to a position in which he would be able to further control women and their rights to their own bodies. All I see is another reason why women are so frightened to and believe that they shouldn’t speak up about their assault.Because it wouldn’t matter.Because nothing would happened.Because you failed her. A woman came forward with an accusation she had absolutely no way of backing up.People did listen. They gave her a congressional hearing for fucks sake, an opportunity I might add she almost refused.She could not prove her claims. People she claimed were witnesses said they had no recollection of the event she put forward. Literally nothing she presented was evidence of any sort and her story was fraught with inconsistencies and vague details.Another woman came forward with a story even more completely uncorroborated. She was so unsure it was even Kavanagh who assaulted her that it took almost a week for her to convince herself it was him, and once again nobody remembers a thing.An investigation was made, people weighed the lack of evidence and determined that there was no cause to prevent the man from taking the job because we still live in a country where you should be viewed as innocent unless there’s actual evidence of your guilt.It’s not that deep.

Apparently, Asian, and Bitch: Detroit Rep. Bettie Cook Scott orn Asian opponent: Don't vote for the ching-chong! by Violet lkonomova August 16, 2018 at 11:09 AM comment v bizarre-transmission: thettasigma: ferventfox: awesome-everyday: internetdumpsterfires: Black people can’t be racist. Ugh, okay. The remark by this black woman was disrespectful and based on race. It was rude, bigoted and uncalled for. But no, in an anti black world, black people do not have the social, political or systemic financial power to be racist. Racism implies that beyond hurting and insulting that asian woman that this black woman is connected to a system that has the power to negatively impact this woman’s existence. That dark skinned black woman who’s an incumbent running for state office likely has about the same amount of systemic power as i do. And furthermore, there could be an argument made that deteoit is chocolate city and perhaps she does have that infrastructure of black networks to truly effect her opponent, but idk I was in Detroit last year and it looks a lot like Brooklyn does now. White and gentrified. White people with money, who control our political systems, finances, and predominant social narratives are claiming urban space like they’re colonizing pioneers looking to take the new world. Detroit isn’t the same anymore. Anyway, black people can be shitty insensitive bigots but we do not have the social capital to be racist, particularly not in the united states. “That dark skinned black woman who’s an incumbent running for state office likely has about the same amount of systemic power as i do.”  Ahahaha: No. A congressperson is the definition of systemic power. You can’t bitch about lack of political power when we are talking about elected politician.  Clearly the world isn’t so anti-black that it couldn’t vote her in.  Chang is also a first generation American, while Scott, to my knowledge, is not, and she specifically made anti-immigrant comments. She also has “power” within the context of her own ethnic community and she used that power to direct racism towards other African-Americans who supported Chang by implying they were somehow traitors, essentially dictating how they ought to act based on their race, particularly Chang’s husband for his interracial marriage (I don’t give a flying fuck what race you are, negative comments about interracial marriage and mixed race people are racist. period. end of story).  Even if I did accept the prejudice + power model or racism (which I don’t as that is neither the etymology or common usage of the word) Cook’s comments would certainly fit the bill. She made race based attacks on people based on types of marginalization that she is exempt from; and did so from a position of power partially gained by the fact that she is exempt from these types of discrimination.   It’s racist. Stop making excuses.  “That dark skinned woman who’s an incumbent running for office likely has about the same amount of systematic power as I do.” Is this person on drugs? They’re claiming that… A political person… A congresswoman… Has no power in the country in which she was elected… By the populace… As a politician. That, or they’re a politician too. Apparently we can say anything now and it makes sense. Huh. Also these remarks are the absolute epitomy of racism and if anyone refuses to see it, they’re not purely misinformed. They are delusional. *literally calls an Asian person ching chong*“How dare you say I’m being racist??” Thank you for attending today’s lecture on cognitive dissonance.

Crime, Driving, and Drugs: Going to try party drugs? *I'm not gonna give vou a preach now just asking for a little favour This is from me (an EMT) to you. 1. Remember the name(s) of what you took.~ 2. If vou only know the slang name, ask (the person you get it from) what kind of drug it's similar to. 3. Tell a good friend what you toolk in case you won't be able to if something happens. 4. If you don't know what you took, remember how it looked (color, form, taste, amount) 5. Please don't lie to the paramedics We are not the police. *We hate interrogating, we love helping. We won't tell you off for taking drugs. *You don't even know what a terrible liar you are when you're drunk. *Telling us that "someone must have put it in my drink" is getting old. Telling us what you took: Will actually make us quite happy, because you're honest. Will make us treat you like an adult. Will un-complicate everything. Will make us stop annoying you (asking questions) and maybe give you a break. Will shorten your hospital stay. Can spare you of unnecessary/ uncomfortable tests and treatments. Will make the ambulance ride less scary and more comforting; We are actually quite nice people and we'll always listen if you wanna talk Sincerely, your EMT P.S. Stay safe emt-monster.tumblr.com pigletkin: kenderfriend: arkhamarchitecture: edens-blog: emt-monster: Please reblog if you know anyone who might take party drugs. this is so important Also important information: A cop cannot arrest you for something you already took. You can tell a cop to his face that you just injected black tar heroin in your veins and as long as you don’t currently have any on you (including things like syringes or residue in a pipe), there’s fuck all he can do about it. I take police reports for a living. The number of people who will happily tell someone “Well officer, this fight started because I smoked crack cocaine earlier,” is astounding and also not at all illegal. The criminal charge is for Possession of a Controlled Substance. If you don’t possess any at the time, there’s no crime. The only thing you can get dinged for is if you’re actively on a drug and driving, in which case - DUI. Please, please, please tell EMTs what you took. They’re not going to rat you out to the cops and even if they did, you will still be okay. Spreading the word, being honest with paramedics and doctors can save your life It’s important to note though that the part about cops not being able to arrest you for something you took isn’t necessarily true everywhere. There are places that have laws specifically about drug use and not just possession where admitting to a cop that you took prohibited drugs could potentially get you in legal trouble. Be honest with paramedics but don’t talk to cops
