This is what a REAL rape prevention campaign looks like
All the awards.
DO ME A HUGE FAVOR AND REBLOG THIS!
This is perfection in a campaign
I love how they included a situation where a guy could’ve gotten raped. People don’t seem to realize that males get raped too. It’s less common, but it happens. That is what sets this campaign apart from others.
No, what sets this campaign apart from others is that it teaches DON’T RAPE (instead of Don’t Be Raped).
a restaurant in my hometown got a review that said the servers should “show some skin” so the owner added a potato skin special to the menu and all the proceeds from the special go to the west virginia foundation for rape information services (x)
That’s exactly the appropriate response.
the first time i told you i love
you, i had my hand over my heart.
like i was seven years old, facing the front
of the classroom, all purple overalls and
to the flag
of the United States of America.
i am used to love
much more painful —
a kind which would have already
pressed its fingerprint-shaped
bruises all over my body
by the time you got around
to holding my hand.
it would have
made the bones in my chest
me alone, aching,
while you were still finding
the courage to kiss me
goodnight at the door.
(the words are heavy,
float lazily through the air
you are gentle
and i do not know what to do
with this soft, fluttering
i love you.

Not much to do with Roller Derby other than the fact that the RD community is one of the most accepting of equality in gender and races amongst other things, I figured you would enjoy it, have a lovely night.
