MASSIVE TRIGGER WARNING: rape, instructions to rape
lieutenant-sarcasm:

My friend who goes to Miami University in Ohio sent me this picture of a flier that was taped up in a men’s bathroom there.  I don’t need to explain why this is horrifying, do I?  She’s asked that we signal boost the shit out of it and get the word out about the degree to which rape culture pervades the campus.  Please help her out with that if you can.  


…yeah, that’s my university. I think I’m going to be sick.

Are you shitting me?

??!?!????!!?!!! I don’t think I have words.

Disgusting.

“He met some chick and rushed into marriage (so they could fuck, obviously).  Then he posted this picture to prove that, while he isn’t ‘pure’, she is…. Yes.  Yes.  This is what you think it is.”
OH. NO. (Thanks Bitch From Philly)

Congratulations!!! You’ve expended your one and only valuable aspect: your hymen! Now Jesus can only use you as a breeding machine.

This is like gross on gross on so many levels. I’m not even talking about bodily fluids here. How gross to have such an intimate moment destroyed by some asshole dude? How gross to have your worth be determined by the state of a thin piece of tissue inside your body? How gross to be deemed unworthy or of no value if you, as a woman, if you do not have this thin piece of tissue in tact when some dudebro decides he’ll marry you just so he can fuck you? It ain’t about love or commitment. It’s about domination. It’s about some jackass rushing you into marriage so he could be the one to break that tissue. Why is this important? Why does this matter?
I am so disgusted and all I have to say to that woman is “GIRL RUN! GO! GET OUT!”

This is so beyond the bounds of what’s even remotely decent or acceptable human behavior. I’d like to emphasize everything already stated above and mention that a hymen, that thin useless piece of skin, can break extremely easily, long before one’s “virginity is lost.” So, if a hymen were to be broken prior to becoming sexually active, would one attribute as much of this perverted Christian celebration and idea of purity as seen above to one’s first sexual experience? Or is an in tact piece of skin all that matters?
This is inherently demeaning to all women and placing value on a woman based upon not only her previous sexual experiences but a thin piece of skin is beyond the bounds of reasonable or acceptable human conduct. To go so far as to make such a personal event public is depraved and it is quite evident that the individual who posted this image does not fully respect their partner. This gross power play that many men engage in needs to stop.
I’m so disgusted by this I can barely focus enough to form even one coherent thought.

Yeeeeah. I flipped my shit when a guy I knew did something like this in high school. He decided to take a picture and show it to all his buddies. I was outraged, wrote a blog post about it (on my babby feminist blog, I thought I was the coolest and edgiest evar), and most of my guy friends at the time were sort of puzzled as to why I was so incredibly offended. 
It’s like “Hey look, I did physical damage to my partner when I stuck my dick in them! Isn’t that awesome?”. Or “Hey, she might be embarassed by this but who cares letting everyone know I had sex is way more important than her feelings”. Or “My woman is super pure unlike your dirty and slovenly women”.
It is all intensely degrading and humiliating. Like, seriously, guys who are all scared of feminists because they supposedly hate men, when dudes do shit like this and then other dudes don’t really call them out on it, I really see no reason why I shouldn’t hate you. 

The last sentence. The bolding is mine. And I stand by that. Always.

think-progress:

Virginia is poised to pass legislation that would require women to endure this invasive ultrasound, for no medical reason, before receiving an abortion. 

As if this wasn’t bad enough already, they don’t have to ask for the woman’s permission before conducting the trans-vaginal ultrasound.

I hate this fucking country. THIS is rape culture.
