Jamie Kilstein - Rape Culture
This interview may be from 2010, but our Secretary of State’s badassery lives on.
Previously on “Amazing Women Calling Out Sexism,” Emma Stone.
Herman Cain is a homophobic, sexist, theocratic asshole. He’s lots of other things as well, but I’m just pointing these out for now. You should know these things about the people running for president of your country. ~ Kim
He says that he will govern based on the needs of the American people… Unless you’re gay or have a uterus, that is.
Yeah, sorry, but even a man would cry like a toddler after getting pepper spray straight to the eyes.
This is absolutely fucking disgusting. Taking a picture of police brutality, when the event the picture is taken from has a hell of a lot of heat online and these stories are well known, and using it to further your anti-feminist propaganda when it actually has nothing to do with the picture? Fuck off and have some respect.
Typical hate-ful straw feminist hate speak. First of all these pictures came from the Occupy Wall Street showdown.
Secondly the police pepper sprayed the fuck out of them- anyone would be a heaving wreck after that
Also, I honestly don’t understand why a display of emotion is immediately linked to being “weak” when regarding to women. What the fuck.
Pepper spray is an inflammatory agent. It causes temporary blindness which lasts from 15–30 minutes, a burning sensation of the skin which lasts from 45 to 60 minutes, upper body spasms which force a person to bend forward and uncontrollable coughing making it difficult to breathe or speak for between 3 to 15 minutes. The duration of its effects depends on the strength of the spray but diminished effects last for hours. For those with asthma, taking other drugs, or subject to restraining techniques which restrict the breathing passages, there is a risk of death. Pepper spray has also been associated with positional asphyxiation of individuals in police custody.
Even the US Army acknowledges pepper spray’s mutagenic and carcinogenic affects; its cardiovascular, pulmonary and neuro-toxicity, as well as documented sensitisation and risk of death. “There is a risk in using this product on a large and varied population”. Like, for example, a group of peaceful protesters.
I’d like to see someone create this poster after taking a faceful of pepper spray. Being female has nothing to do with it. These people have been attacked by police while abiding every letter of the law, and their aggressor will almost certainly face no penalty. I don’t see cause for humour in police brutality, and I don’t acknowledge your right to turn this assault into an attack on the victims, no matter who they are.
Tl;dr: go fuck yourself.
reblog for commentary!
stares at dr pepper can on my desk
drops it in trash
I looked it up and one article said

Good to know. I thought about having some with my lunch the other day.
