artbymoga: onefitmodel: rootandrock: timeofthedecade: bigdaddyg-wil: this guy pulled out his dick in front of like 5 billion feminist protestors holy shit Some context for the idiots claiming the women are overreacting: This occurred at a Slut Walk. For those not familiar with it, the Slut Walk is basically a peaceful protest seeking to eliminate the rape apologism so prevalent in society. The basis is that no woman is “asking for it,” with “it” being rape. It’s not a feminist protest; it’s a human rights protest. Many of the protesters, as you can probably imagine, have dealt with sexual harassment or rape in their own lives. Many of them have structured their daily activities to avoid being raped. The gathering is supposed to be a place for them to feel empowered and able to recover in the company of those who understand what they’ve been through or who will not blame them. Nobody at a Slut Walk will tell a survivor that it’s her fault. They will not ask what she was wearing to provoke her attacker. Nobody will say she had too much to drink. Nobody will tell the men in the group that they are inherently rapists themselves, and nobody will tell a male survivor that his experience “wasn’t really rape.” Then, this fellow comes along. He sees this gathering of survivors and their supporters, and to him, it’s a joke. He sees feminazis. He sees girls who are taking “a bit of fun” too seriously. And what does he do? He exposes himself to this group of survivors and supporters - some of whom are, in fact, underage. He sexually harasses literally hundreds of women in one act. Aside from public indecency, there was cruel intent in his actions. He wanted to make them uncomfortable. He wanted to “put them in their place.” Other photos from this event show him flipping the protesters off and laughing at their anger. And there are still people defending his actions. There are those who still feel like these women were asking for itand that they deserved to be harassed for trying to claim they weren’t. There are those who feel that women should be taught a lesson this way, and they applaud this man’s actions. So no, he didn’t pull out his dick in front of feminist protesters. He harassed dozens - if not hundreds - of rape survivors. The reaction to his actions alone outline the purpose of the Slut Walk. For those of you still doubting whether what he did was wrong (and I do wonder if there’s something wrong with you, if you have doubts), let me give you an analogous situation. Imagine a gathering of black civil rights activists. Imagine Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X, Rosa Parks, and all their colleagues gathered together to demonstrate that being black did not make them lesser people. That being black and living in the South did not mean they were “asking” to be the target of hate crimes. And at this gathering, a white man decides he should teach them a lesson by pointedly hanging a noose from the nearest tree and laughing at their anger. And other white men, laughing along with him, commend him for taking these activists down a peg. That’s what happened here. It’s not an “OMG, I can’t believe he did that!” moment. It’s an “OMG, there are people who think this is okay” moment. And the fact is, it’s not. It never will be. And that’s the take home message of this ridiculous rant I’ve written up. And this is why we still need feminism. this made me cry holy shit That was hands down one of the most well-written and beautiful responses I have had the pleasure to read.

death-limes: venipede: osteophagy: endcetaceanexploitation: Washoe was a chimp who was taught sign language. One of Washoe’s caretakers was pregnant and missed work for many weeks after she miscarried. Roger Fouts recounts the following situation: “People who should be there for her and aren’t are often given the cold shoulder—her way of informing them that she’s miffed at them. Washoe greeted Kat [the caretaker] in just this way when she finally returned to work with the chimps. Kat made her apologies to Washoe, then decided to tell her the truth, signing “MY BABY DIED.” Washoe stared at her, then looked down. She finally peered into Kat’s eyes again and carefully signed “CRY”, touching her cheek and drawing her finger down the path a tear would make on a human (Chimpanzees don’t shed tears). Kat later remarked that one sign told her more about Washoe and her mental capabilities than all her longer, grammatically perfect sentences.“ [23] Washoe herself lost two children; one baby died shortly after birth of a heart defect, the other baby, Sequoyah, died of a staph infection at two months of age. more about Washoe: after the death of her children, researchers were determined to have Washoe raise a baby and brought in a ten month chimpanzee named Loulis. one of the caretakers went to Washoe’s enclosure and signed “i have a baby for you.” Washoe became incredibly excited, yelling and swaying from side to side, signing “baby” over and over again. then she signed “my baby.” the caretaker came back with Loulis, and Washoe’s excitement disappeared entirely. she refused to pick Loulis up, instead signing “baby” apathetically; it was clear that the baby she thought she was getting was going to be Sequoyah. eventually Washoe did approach Loulis, and by the next day the two had bonded and from then on she was utterly devoted to him. *information shamelessly paraphrased from When Elephants Weep by Jeffrey Masson. Even more interestingly, after Washoe and Loulis bonded, she started teaching him American Sign Language the same way that human parents teach their children language. It only took Loulis eight days to learn his first sign from Washoe, and aside from the seven that his human handlers learned around him, he learned to speak in ASL just as fluently as Washoe and was able to communicate with humans in the same way she could. now if y'all don’t think this is the tightest shit you can get outta my face : did you know? did-you-kno.tumblr.com Michael the gorilla was taught sign language by Koko, the first signing gorilla.

Just some examples: Last Christmas she gave everyone in the family portable fire extinguishers so we don't die in house fires . The Christmas before that she gave us seatbelt cutters and glass break hammers "in case our cars go off the road and we're trapped in" (her words) . When my parents went to Europe last summer for a month, she gave them copies of The Worst Case Scenario Survival Handbook as if it were a real book and told them it had "a lot of good tips" . She gave my brother and his wife a security camera and motion light set when they got married because they purchased a home that, according to my sister, is in a neighborhood with an "unusually high crime rate." * The one that really got me was at my baby shower last week. She gave me, and I'm not kidding, this creepy infant CPR mannequin that gives feedback as to whether you're doing chest compressions luffykun3695: iwilleatyourenglish: wowvantasticbaby: Just so people know, I looked at the source and the sister was in a very bad car accident and these gifts are likely her way of dealing with her trauma. honestly…. the fact that they didn’t include this in the original post fucking sucks.but also… i know these gifts may seem “creepy,” but they’re all really practical (well, aside from the book) and show that she clearly cares about the safety of her loved ones.

Just some examples: Last Christmas she gave everyone in the family portable fire extinguishers so we don't die in house fires . The Christmas before that she gave us seatbelt cutters and glass break hammers "in case our cars go off the road and we're trapped in" (her words) . When my parents went to Europe last summer for a month, she gave them copies of The Worst Case Scenario Survival Handbook as if it were a real book and told them it had "a lot of good tips" . She gave my brother and his wife a security camera and motion light set when they got married because they purchased a home that, according to my sister, is in a neighborhood with an "unusually high crime rate." * The one that really got me was at my baby shower last week. She gave me, and I'm not kidding, this creepy infant CPR mannequin that gives feedback as to whether you're doing chest compressions luffykun3695: iwilleatyourenglish: wowvantasticbaby: Just so people know, I looked at the source and the sister was in a very bad car accident and these gifts are likely her way of dealing with her trauma. honestly…. the fact that they didn’t include this in the original post fucking sucks.but also… i know these gifts may seem “creepy,” but they’re all really practical (well, aside from the book) and show that she clearly cares about the safety of her loved ones.

Sincerely Jaymison Jones Division Manager HNONP 3 READ THIS AND PLEASE FORWARD So last week my daughter, Micah got a letter in the mail. Completely generic letter with no return address. Inside was a typed message saying Hi Micah, just wanted to let you know that we are hiring for $15 an hour here in town and are interested in an interview with you. Please give me a call so we can set up an appointment. Thanks, Austin." Micah ripped it up thinking it was spam mail since there was no buisness letterhead or return address label. Today we were just made aware of a very dangerous situation here in placer and sacramento county. Apparently there is a group of people seeking out young girls locally within our community. Finding profile pictures of pretty girls on facebook, Google searching they're information, obtaining addresses and phone numbers and contacting them regarding a job opportunity It has been reported and confirmed that once the girls meet at the disclosed Uce ue giis meet at ue uisuioseu location, they are offered water while waiting. The water contains rufinal. Once the girls pass out, they are then transported to different locations as sex slaves for human trafficking. We are so fortunate and lucky our daughter didn't fall for the letter but I think it's important to make this public. Please pass this along, it could save a life. folly-of-alexandria: thatsubmissivedragon: theroofisonfiire: thalia-freaking-grace: niv-mizzle: obi-wanz: aazvolunven: jonfawkes: breezy-cheezy: cloud-strife-amiibo: hueyfucker420: mooncryptid: mooncryptid: soundiing: icandrawthings: shishitsunari: littleblackchat: pan-apollo: jxnc: actuallycrying: existental: zayenmalik: mochimochimeido: bimuslimheaux: siliecrazie: disimba: disimba: READ THIS.

Vector (which is actually a real company) has released a statement addressing false sex trafficking accusations they’ve been getting. However! Do not work for this company as it’s essentially a pyramid scheme. Vector promises its workers (mostly college students and recent high school graduates) that they’ll make $15 or more per hour, but this is rarely true. When you work for this company, you basically have to sell ridiculously expensive knife sets door-to-door, which–not surprisingly–don’t tend to sell very well. You only make any money if you reach a certain quota, which most people don’t meet because, again, the knives are insanely overpriced. You have to buy your own demo kit (at full price) to bring with you. (In other words, you have to pay them before they’ll hire you, which is one of the telltale signs that you’re being scammed.) They also encourage you to try and sell to your friends and family, which is shady as fuck. I haven’t personally worked for Vector, but everyone I know who has says it’s a scam. Moral of the story: responding to these letters won’t get you kidnapped by a sex trafficker, but this company is still not to be trusted. My actual response to this post the first time I saw it: “I got one of these. I shredded it thinking it was one of those knife selling scams.”OH HEY LOOK It’s actually that knife selling scam.: Dear Baille, My name is Jaymison Jones, and I currently manage a local business in Sacramento.

Sincerely Jaymison Jones Division Manager HNONP 3 READ THIS AND PLEASE FORWARD So last week my daughter, Micah got a letter in the mail. Completely generic letter with no return address. Inside was a typed message saying Hi Micah, just wanted to let you know that we are hiring for $15 an hour here in town and are interested in an interview with you. Please give me a call so we can set up an appointment. Thanks, Austin." Micah ripped it up thinking it was spam mail since there was no buisness letterhead or return address label. Today we were just made aware of a very dangerous situation here in placer and sacramento county. Apparently there is a group of people seeking out young girls locally within our community. Finding profile pictures of pretty girls on facebook, Google searching they're information, obtaining addresses and phone numbers and contacting them regarding a job opportunity It has been reported and confirmed that once the girls meet at the disclosed Uce ue giis meet at ue uisuioseu location, they are offered water while waiting. The water contains rufinal. Once the girls pass out, they are then transported to different locations as sex slaves for human trafficking. We are so fortunate and lucky our daughter didn't fall for the letter but I think it's important to make this public. Please pass this along, it could save a life. yarnaddiction: sassycrafty: kuejoh: breezy-cheezy: cloud-strife-amiibo: hueyfucker420: mooncryptid: mooncryptid: soundiing: icandrawthings: shishitsunari: littleblackchat: pan-apollo: jxnc: actuallycrying: existental: zayenmalik: mochimochimeido: bimuslimheaux: siliecrazie: disimba: disimba: READ THIS. It was posted on FB today, then someone commented on it and said their 19year old son even got one in the mail TODAY. If you live in Sacramento read this and protect your selves as well as friends, family, and peers. Huge human trafficking area!!! Sacramento,CA. Is the #2 hotspot for human trafficking in the United States. BOOST Oh my god. I got a letter exactly like this in Louisville, KY. The exact same wording and everything. I threw mine out because there was no letterhead or information and I thought it was just a scam but I had no idea that it was this bad. I have no idea how they found me. Please be safe out there. I got this letter too wtf… I got that letter too in AZ everyone be super careful. This is also happening in San Diego!!! I received one in the mail on friday! I live in Kansas and got this letter a few weeks ago too. Be careful everyone. Holy shit I live in AZ I’ve got this letter like 5 times that’s scary as hell I GOT THIS LETTER IN THE MAIL A FEW DAYS AGO IM SHAKING RIGHT NOW Please be careful oh my God i can’t stress enough don’t fall for fake shit like this they are very apparently suspicious but they target teens who are desperate for a job PLEASE be careful holy shit Yeah it’s fucked up. I’ve gotten two addressed to me. Everyone please be careful Idk if this is real or not, but since so many of my followers are female, please be careful. <3 The hell?! This is why I never post my pictures on the Internet. Ever. I don’t even SNAPCHAT my face in case some freak gets their hands on it. Fuck men. Living in AR and got it too. Kind of freaking out. dude what the fuck i got one of those too??? the terrifying thing is that i was actually going to apply because it sounded like a really good deal  (personal info aside from my first name edited out bc obviously)  also, mine has a website attached to it (my name.VectorApply.com), and when i went to the website, and after asking for my zip code this is what popped up:  which is obviously incredibly suspicious (just heads up, ANY job application you do will ask you for much, much more information than this. if all it asks you for is name, email, and phone number, it’s most likely a scam, and you need to close out of that as fast as possible tbh) and, just as a test, i put in a fake name for the first half of the url (fuckhandsmcmike.vectorapply.com), and the same screen shows up, which… wouldn’t be correct if it only generated urls based on potential “applicants” that had received letters i would HIGHLY recommend reporting this to the appropriate authorities if you’re able to, because this shit is shady as fuck and very, very scary.  holy fuck i was going to apply but i got sick i feel like i dodged a bullet Jesus Christ my Husband got this letter and we were about to call I’m so glad he found this Jesus Christ this is so creepy I’m scared; I got this letter a few days ago?? I live in TN and this is tell absolutely terrifying; everyone please stay safe! oh my god i got this letter last week. scary shit. Vector (which is actually a real company) has released a statement addressing false sex trafficking accusations they’ve been getting. However! Do not work for this company as it’s essentially a pyramid scheme. Vector promises its workers (mostly college students and recent high school graduates) that they’ll make $15 or more per hour, but this is rarely true. When you work for this company, you basically have to sell ridiculously expensive knife sets door-to-door, which–not surprisingly–don’t tend to sell very well. You only make any money if you reach a certain quota, which most people don’t meet because, again, the knives are insanely overpriced. You have to buy your own demo kit (at full price) to bring with you. (In other words, you have to pay them before they’ll hire you, which is one of the telltale signs that you’re being scammed.)
