Apparently, Ash, and College: its-bewitched: anti-fem-anti-stupid: jalopyrustbucket: anti-fem-anti-stupid: pesthouse: classic-ash: wtfokcreepy: poppunkvampire: well I found my high school rapist on okcupid which allows me to out this fucker this man is named Ian Dickinson. he lives in Vancouver WA and he is 24 years old. when I was 16 and he was 19, he and an accomplice (who I will not out for personal reasons) assaulted me in his bed while I cried and begged them to stop. when I told him afterwards that what he had done wasn’t ok, he told me I shouldn’t have worn the skirt I had on and I deserved it, and then he laughed. we were both sober. he’s studying Engineering at Clark Community College in Vancouver. stay away from him. Stay safe, ladies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I live on the other side of the continent, but I’m still reblogging this because this man is a straight up cunt and deserves to be signal boosted. I hope you never have sex again. Ian Dickinson do not employ Ian Dickinson he is a rapist use his name as many times as possible so this post shows up when you google him So when his employer googles him they will see Ian Dickinson is a rapist Ian Dickinson rapes women Ian Dickinson is a criminal Ian Dickinson should have an arrest warrant Ian Dickinson should not have a job Ian Dickinson is in Vancouver WA What the fuck is wrong with you people? You’re trying to out this guy as a rapist with no evidence that he’s actually a rapist. One person makes an allegation, work am attempt are an emotional story behind it to drum up support, and several other people decide to smear this person.I hope their using the wrong name.For all we know, this person is just angry at an Ex. If the allegations are true, then law enforcement would know it, and there’d be controls on his behavior. That’s what’s fairly likely. Especially since there’s an “accomplice” that doesn’t matter apparently. It doesn’t make any sense. How could people go along with this? So don’t name the accomplice due to personal reasons, though ruin this guys life? I can taste fuckery all around. “Let’s just casually try to ruin this random person‘s life just because another random person says he’s a rapist while providing absolutely no proof whatsoever.“ -Tumblr

Children, Love, and School: EmbraceRace Yesterday at 12:00 PM Because treating people fairly often means treating them differently Equality Equity calvstarose Because treating people fairly often means treating them differently aloneindarknes7 This is something that I teach my students during the first week of school and they understand it. Eight year olds can understand this and all it costs is a box of band-aids I have each students pretend they got hurt and need 30 I have each students pretend they got hurt and need a band-aid. Children love band-aids. I ask the first one where they are hurt. If he says his finger, I put the band- aid on his finger. Then I ask the second one where they are hurt. No matter what that child says, I put the band- aid on their finger exactly like the first child. I keep doing that through the whole class. No matter where they say their pretend injury is, Ido the same thing I did with the first one. After they all have band-aids in the same spot, I ask if that actually helped any of them other than the first child. I say, "Well, I helped all of you the same! You all have one band-aid!" And they'll try to get me to understand that they were hurt somewhere else. I act like l'm just now understanding it. Then I explain, "There might be moments this year where some of you get different things because you need them differently, just like you needed a band-aid in a different spot." If at any time any of my students ask why one student has a different assignment, or gets taken out of the class for a subject, or gets another teacher to come in and help them throughout the year, I remind my students of the band-aids they got at the start of the school year and they stop complaining. That's why eight year olds can understand equity Fuente: citizenshipandsocialjustice 30 Why is it hard to understand?

Bad, Family, and Phone: 2 When my grandfather was young he owned a roadside motel, and my mother used to do work around the motel for the family. The building was old and they had bad pipes, so visits from the plumber were a fairly regular occurrence over there At one point they had a clogged toilet after a guest checked out, so they called the plumber to come and clean it out. The plumber came in with his bag of gear and set to work, but the clog was stubborn After a few tries, he decided he needed to get the snake I don't know if you've ever seen a serious plumbing snake, but the big ones are a sight to behold. This isn't a little crank auger, it's a full-on electrical powered snake with a big motor on the back and a little grabby claw on the end So he fires up the snake and sends the metal coil down into the pipes with the claw closed, figuring whatever's down there he'll just bump it a bit, push it down the pipes until it clears - but this doesn't happen either. Finally, in frustration, he twists the control to open the mechanical claw at the end of the coil, closes it on something, throws the motor in reverse and starts to pull it back up By now a couple of members of the staff have gathered in the room to try and tigure out what the hell got flushed down the toilet that this giant machine couldn't remove. The motor is really straining you know that sound an electric motor makes when it's working really hard? The whole machine is struggling to pull whatever this is back up through the pipes and into the roonm Finally, after an extended wait, the object is slowly dragged, sopping wet, out of the toilet bowl - and it's a shower curtain, The staff is dumbfounded. They're trying to figure out how this could have happened. It would be weird enough if the guest had ripped the shower curtain down and flushed it down the toilet, but the shower curtain in the room is still there. It would be even weirder if the guest had brought their own shower curtain to the motel and tried to flush it down the toilet, but it's clearly one of their shower curtains. Did they try and steal the shower curtain, leave with it, then feel guilty and come back only to find that the shower curtain had already been replaced, and then flush the shower curtain down the toilet to hide the evidence? While they're discussing this, the room phone rings The person on the other end is screaming, hysterical, so it takes a few minutes for them to figure out that it's the housekeeper who was cleaning the rooms. After a few moments, the manage to get the story out of her: The snake had missed the clog entirely. Rather than spiraling down into the plumbing where it was intended to go, it had wound its way into the central line, and then back up the pipes in the room next door. It spiraled its way up, out the toilet bowl, and then started flailing wildly around the next-door bathroom like a Lovecraftian nightmare made of steel, knocking things off of shelves and clattering furiously around the room. Then, while the hapless housekeeper watched in horror, a metal claw opened on the end of it and snagged the shower curtain, ripped it off the bar ring-by-ring, spun it around the room until it was coiled tightly around the cable, and dragged it back down into the toilet bowl The actual clog was never found 10980 Because a shower curtain would really go through the pipes like that

Also men usually use razors to shave their face and I’m fairly certain facial hair is coarser than leg and armpit hair so it stands to reason that they would be designed a little differently.</p><p>Plus people keep acting like they are being *forced* to buy products marketed towards women. Literally no one is doing that. I guarantee you if people stopped buying products marketed towards women companies would stop making them. But people won’t, because whether they want to admit it or not most of these products *are* fundamentally different. This is not a “tax“ by any definition of the word. </p>

If they’re a real person and wearing that, while it is cosplaying, they’re still choosing to wear it. A character is drawn like that, by the artist or character designer or whatever. That’s why they’re different, they don’t get to choose anything. Even if it’s explained with some canonical reason, if that reason isn’t explored enough then it’s just trying to excuse itself. I haven’t personally watched FMA, but I know that Lust is a big character/villain/whatever and I’m going on a hunch that the writers gave a solid reason for her being dressed like that (which, by the way, isn’t even all that slutty). But if the whole reasoning for a character is “muh powers” then it’s shit lol, and is open to being redrawn in a better way to get rid of unwarranted fan service, ESPECIALLY when the characters are fucking UNDER-AGED.<br/><br/></p> </blockquote> <p>Way to miss the point.</p> <p>If a woman chooses to wear it and they like it, and you see no issue with a woman wearing that costume, then it isn’t the outfit that is the problem.  You’re either a hypocrite or a fucking coward who isn’t willing to call a real woman out on her outfit, so you have to fall back to criticizing the SAME outfit when a fictional woman wears it.</p> <p>And if she’s underaged, why are you sexualizing her for wearing what amounts to a fairly conservative bikini.</p> <figure class="tmblr-full" data-orig-height="660" data-orig-width="662"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/086f3e2af18343d223d135657e2c07e7/tumblr_inline_p6zyq1Mdh71s6h2s8_540.jpg" data-orig-height="660" data-orig-width="662"/></figure><p>The woman on the left is 16.  What now?  Does wearing that outfit mean you’re going to sexualize her?  If so, why are you sexualizing a 16 year old?</p> <p>If an artist creates an outfit and women like it and wear it then why the fuck are you criticizing the outfit for?  Because clearly there are women who would wear it and CLEARLY you wouldn’t criticize them for doing so.</p> <p>The entire argument that there’s a difference between a fictional character wearing the outfit and a real woman wearing the outfit is bullshit and I saw through it the second it was brought up.  Your argument about autonomy means nothing when there are women who WANT to wear that outfit themselves IRL.</p> </blockquote> <p><i>&gt; But if the whole reasoning for a character is “muh powers” then it’s shit lol, and is open to being redrawn in a better way to get rid of unwarranted fan service, ESPECIALLY when the characters are fucking UNDER-AGED.</i><br/></p> <p>A few points on this…</p> <ol><li>The context of the story and setting, not your ideologies and opinions, determine whether something is fitting and consistent with that setting.<br/></li> <li>You nor anyone else has say over whether fanservice or anything in a story is ‘warranted.’</li> <li>[see attached image]</li> </ol><figure class="tmblr-full" data-orig-height="575" data-orig-width="591"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/8961db7534dc7b92b4b155ed14ae3bf7/tumblr_inline_p6zzesdGLq1vbc8bq_540.jpg" data-orig-height="575" data-orig-width="591"/></figure></blockquote> <p>also these characters are not real and therefore have no feelings about being sexualized, so you moralistic Super Save-A-Hoes need to take a nap </p></blockquote> <p>I never seen a more sanctimonious can people.

The total firearms murder rate that year was 0.3/100,000. From 1980-1995, Australian firearms deaths dropped from 4.9/100,000-2.6/100,000 without the implementation of firearms laws. This is a rate of decline that has remained fairly constant; Looking at 1996-2014, in which the rate has dropped from 2.6-0.86, it shows that the decline has been slower in a longer period of time since the law’s passing. Likewise, homicides declined more quickly in the 15 years prior to the firearms laws (0.8-0.3) than in the 18 years since it (0.3-0.1). This just indicates that firearms deaths haven’t been noticeably affected by the legislation you’ve claimed has done so much to decrease gun crime. <br/></p> <p>It should also be noted that around the same time, New Zealand experienced a similar mass shooting, but did not change their existing firearms laws, which remain fairly lax; even moreso than some American states like California, New York, or Connecticut. Despite this, their firearms crime rate has declined fairly steadily as well, and they haven’t experienced a mass shooting since.</p> <p>The <i>“australia banned guns and now they’re fine”</i> argument is really old and really poorly put together. Gun control is little more than a pink band-aid on the sucking chest wound that is America’s social and economic problems. It’s a ‘quick fix’ issue used by politicians to skirt around solving the roots of the violence problem in the United States, which are primarily poverty, lack of opportunities, and lack of education.</p> <p>You could ban guns tomorrow nationwide and gun violence and overall violent crime would not be reduced at all.</p> <p><i>[this segment brought to you by <a href="http://tmblr.co/m9F_132GzodNt-UaipnK67g">cerebralzero</a>]</i></p> <p>In 2005 the head of the New South Wales Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research, Don Weatherburn,<sup><a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gun_laws_in_Australia#cite_note-37">[37]</a></sup> noted that the level of legal gun ownership in NSW increased in recent years, and that the 1996 legislation had had little to no effect on violence</p> <p>In 2006, the lack of a measurable effect from the 1996 firearms legislation was reported in the British Journal of Criminology.

The authors conclude that “the hypothesis that Australia’s prohibition of certain types of firearms explains the absence of mass shootings in that country since 1996 does not appear to be supported… if civilian access to certain types of firearms explained the occurrence of mass shootings in Australia (and conversely, if prohibiting such firearms explains the absence of mass shootings), then New Zealand (a country that still allows the ownership of such firearms) would have continued to experience mass shooting events.”<sup><a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gun_laws_in_Australia#cite_note-44">[44]</a></sup></p> <figure data-orig-width="500" data-orig-height="261" class="tmblr-full"><img data-orig-width="500" data-orig-height="261" src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/cdc45e76a09651676eab1f058341110c/tumblr_inline_nynm84pBjF1sh8jq3_500.gif"/></figure><p>We see the same trend in The UK.</p> <figure data-orig-width="500" data-orig-height="373" class="tmblr-full"><img data-orig-width="500" data-orig-height="373" src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/bf599e784e9963b91a4e4f245fed90f5/tumblr_inline_nynm9wKrKT1sh8jq3_540.png"/></figure><figure data-orig-width="458" data-orig-height="366" class="tmblr-full"><img data-orig-width="458" data-orig-height="366" src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/279f61b9c596b97badd4bc465cc46b60/tumblr_inline_nynm9zWkxr1sh8jq3_540.png"/></figure><p>And Ireland and Jamaica…</p> <figure data-orig-width="453" data-orig-height="714" class="tmblr-full"><img data-orig-width="453" data-orig-height="714" src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/4914c912d5690b40a382b90cf18c646f/tumblr_inline_nynmakqIup1sh8jq3_540.jpg"/></figure><p>And on and on and on…  Gun control simply does not create a safer society and often times actually has the opposite effect.</p> <p>At this point I should also probably point out that Australia’s gun laws have not even reduced gun ownership in Australia.  <a href="http://louderwithcrowder.com/australian-gun-ownership-rises-gun-crime-remains-low-america-still-at-fault/">In fact, gun ownership in Australia is actually higher now than in 1996.</a></p> <p>All of these inconvenient facts aside, we haven’t even touched on the cost of implementing Australian style gun control in America.</p> <p>I keep hearing people say that the US should adopt Australia’s gun control policy and I don’t think they have really thought about the big picture of that plan.</p> <p>Australia had far less guns per person and people in their country did not live in a society that was brought up respecting The 2nd Amendment.  The culture of Australia is very different than that of the culture of America when it comes to gun ownership and self defense.</p> <p>Because of this, <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gun_buyback_program#Australia">the Australian government was able to buy back 631,000 guns at the estimated price of about <b>$500,000,000.</b></a>  You read that correctly, <b>500 MILLION</b>.</p> <p><a href="http://cerebralzero.tumblr.com/tagged/australia">And even after all of that, it still did nothing to prevent violent crime and criminals in Australia still have access to illegal guns, </a>despite being an island country that isn’t bordered by other countries with high violent crime rates and rampant with illegal drug cartels.<br/></p> <p>There are over 360,000,000 legally owned firearms in America.  If we go by Australia’s numbers (<b>$792.39 per gun</b>), these guns would cost our government <b>$285,261,489,698.89</b> to buy back.  Almost <b>300 BILLION dollars</b>, assuming that every gun owner voluntarily turns in their guns…  Which is a very slim to nothing chance.</p> <p>Who’s going to pay for that?  Anti-gunners?  I think not.</p> <p>So, in closing, you want America to put in place gun legislation that will cost the country hundreds of billions of dollars <b>AND </b>has already been proven time and time again to be completely ineffective at protecting innocent lives or creating a safer society?</p> <p>Seems pretty silly.</p> <h2>Get dunked on, nerd.</h2> <figure data-orig-width="250" data-orig-height="188"><img data-orig-width="250" data-orig-height="188" src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/36a75ffd7a3ce392092201d3769d443e/tumblr_inline_nynmeusS661sh8jq3_500.gif"/></figure></blockquote> <p><figure class="tmblr-full" data-orig-height="281" data-orig-width="500" data-tumblr-attribution="eonline:S4A57ljapSvQXLPM7Jsomg:ZCTZKx1sDpydf"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/5b521c18948099c6594a510905c6dfe9/tumblr_nt8sq3NZGm1qlgbzbo1_500.gif" data-orig-height="281" data-orig-width="500"/></figure></p> </blockquote> <p>Teehee, Mac ‘n’ cheese</p> </blockquote> <p>Would make it clear that a gv’t buyback has never been on the table.
