there’s a connection between the porn industry and rape culture that i think people miss most of the time
why is it that consent is such a huge issue? because it’s not really learned. one of the first ways men explore sexuality is through porn. do you see any real consent going on in porn? i mean, according to this industry, it doesn’t matter the situation, women want to be fucked. men become ~*swift casanovas*~ and all it takes is some touching. if there’s any resistance, it’s met with unzipped pants and “look at me look at my dick u kno u want it slut”
this leaves an impression on young boys, navigating the awkward beginnings of puberty, wondering how to express themselves sexually and make advances towards their preferred sex. porn gives them a twisted idea of how to go about this, making sex appear to be non-negotiable and some sort of thing they’re entitled to. “she wants it! all women do” is the message that comes across from scenes composed of fake orgasms and over-exaggerated expressions.
so why are people so dumbfounded that intimacy has been this far simplified, that consent doesn’t matter to so many people? there’s an entire booming industry where consent doesn’t even exist
people always blame everything on porn like the lack of real sex ed from a younger age ain’t the real issue
@ bold: Do you see any real situations in porn?
This is a dumb post.
Because you cannot blame real-world issues on an industry that is based off fantasy.
I get both sides. When you’re that young, you may not fully understand that porn is fantasy. You may think that’s how sex is truly supposed to go. And the lack of sex education is not there to teach you any differently, from neither the male nor female perspective.
And for those that may not have the common damn sense to know better, we now have a culture that is prime pickings for tomfoolery and fuckery.
People are trying to get a law passed in Georgia that’ll expel any gay kid from any public school.
Can y’all just please be quiet for one moment about the new tumblr theme and pass this around.
It’s far more important than the “new tumblr theme”.
Funny thing is, I had the perfect appropriate gif to post…
But the new Tumblr theme said HELL NAWL.
That’s alright, Tumblr. I’ll still reblog anyway.
Blake Fall-Conroy, “Minimum Wage Machine,” 2008-2010
This machine allows anyone to work for minimum wage for as long as they like. Turning the crank on the side releases one penny every 4.97 seconds, for a total of $7.25 per hour. This corresponds to minimum wage for a person in New York.
This piece is brilliant on multiple levels, particularly as social commentary. Without a doubt, most people who started operating the machine for fun would quickly grow disheartened and stop when realizing just how little they’re earning by turning this mindless crank. A person would then conceivably realize that this is what nearly two million people in the United States do every day…at much harder jobs than turning a crank. This turns the piece into a simple, yet effective argument for raising the minimum wage.
Here’s a piece that another artist is working on that could also help inspire change in the U.S. government. He’s trying to raise money to send every U.S. Senator a copy of Dr. Seuss’ “The Zax.” They clearly should have paid more attention to stories about compromise like this in kindergarten. Indiegogo.com/TheZaxProject.
I propose we send every U.S. Senator a copy of this machine. And that turning that crank can be their job for the month. And if they don’t make enough money to pay their bills we call them lazy and tell them they should have just worked harder if they wanted things like houses, and food.
She real mad. I skimmed through most of this but its a barrel of laughs.
She REAL MAD.
And prally really drunk.
But its so so soooooooooooooooooooooo funny.
They’re getting ready to eat each other.
First thing I noticed: 24 MINUTES!? What the hell is she talmbout for 24 minutes?
Next, no video? She must only have a mic. That’s cool. But then she shows her TV? Bitch, why you hiding? Show your face if you got some shit to say!
Obama, his administration and other liberal POC
are not above critique simply because we like them,think they’re cool or the lesser of the other evils as far as politicians go. Yes they have done great things and aren’t complete assholes however; anybody in office, whether you put them there or not, should be held accountable for what they do while they’re in office.
Oh please. This is just silly.
but not unexpected
NC is on the list. Huge surprise there.
OK. But what about the people who LIVE THERE that wish to stay a part of the Union. Like who thinks of shit like this?
This is a very real thing. There was an extremely opinionated man spouting off about this the other day in the doctor’s office. TX is overflooded with
country hick good ol’ boy conservatives who think just like him. I’m not surprised by this, nor will I be surprised if it comes to fruition.
At which time, I will be moving.
Romney - Red & Obama - Blue
It’s a sad day when the majority of Americans voted for someone to be President and our voices got OVER-RULED.
Maybe after these 4 years y’all will understand that Obama was not the best choice for moving this country, ‘forward.’
It’s all the damn big cities
Your voices didn’t get over-ruled. Certain counties contain more people therefore make up a larger percentage of the vote. Obama won in the popular vote so uhhhhh chill out.
obama actually got hamilton county in ohio which is red sooo…also talk to al gore about the popular vote.
the electoral college works fine when you get who you want in office.
also, OP and friends should have paid more attention in school.
the electoral college works fine when you get who you want in office.
Not to steal anybody’s joy or nothing
But what happens in 4 years when Obama can’t run again? THAT’S what we need to be concerned with. #ThinkingAhead Because please believe, we haven’t seen the last of Mittens. He WILL be back.
But to revel in the moment just cause…
Attention, all you niggaz, all you bitches
Time to put down the Cristal, time to take off the ice for a minute
Time to throw a little mud in this motherfucker..
*SCREAMS AND HOLLERS*
THE OTHER FOX NEWS
This is AMAZING. Vivica A Fox throws GALLONS of shade at Stacey Dash in the only way you’d expect from Vivica A Fox. Oh god. This is everything today. Screw Taylor and Conor’s split - this is the most important pop culture moment of the week. For sure. I am beaming.
That’s classic Midwest church shade right there. So polite, so sweet, so much fuck you for being a mess in public.
LMAO BUT WHEN SHE SAID “She DOESNT HAVE A JOB”
Oh Vivica you shady bitch lmao
Did ya’ll see the interviewer’s face?? He was like “Oh sweet bitch you just came for her”
That patronizing “Mm hmm, yes, I know where you’re going with this and I’m gonna keep it cute face” in the beginning…
That journalist was STUNNED. He had absolutely no words. LOL
Dear People Taking Pictures in the Voting Booth
Is nothing sacred anymore?
Does instagraming your voting ballot somehow make you a cool person? Does it make a difference?
I mean damn, they should’ve never gave you niggas money. You don’t know how to ‘preciate shit.
