Anonymous asked: excuse me?? how the FUCK is porn rape?
Studies show that after viewing pornography men are more likely to:
report decreased empathy for rape victims
have increasingly aggressive behavioral tendencies
report believing that a woman who dresses provocatively deserves to be raped
report anger at women who flirt but then refuse to have sex
report decreased sexual interest in their girlfriends or wives
report increased interest in coercing partners into unwanted sex acts

I started writing in college. I had a great playwriting teacher who said ‘you should write’. It almost hadn’t occurred to me that that was something I could do. I was a theater fanatic when I was in high school and –– Wendy Wasserstein? Caryl Churchill? I could count on one hand the women I knew who wrote plays. Every great American playwright was a man. And so I just sort of were like, ‘they’re men, they’re probably smarter than me, I can’t do it’. And then someone was like ‘Why did you ever think that? You can totally do it.’ But I think if you don’t have examples, it’s very hard to imagine yourself doing it.

yeah but you forget how the hunger games fandom got the main character with the wrong skin color
We are in training from the time we are born to tolerate abuse. That is what being nice means. When they tease us, and chase us, and grab us, and the adults tell us it is because they like us, we are being trained to tolerate abuse. The dominance and submission training starts at a very early age and we are dying from it. Every day.
