This is fucking infuriating.

No, what’s infuriating is women who make false rape accusations

^

No. Literally, this is fucking infuriating. How long did you think this shit would get passed around before someone handed it back to you on a silver platter?

Let’s talk false rape allegations, okay? You wanna go big or go home? The estimated percentage of false rape allegations is 2%-8% of all reported rapes. Let that sink in.

Now, a few points.

Additionally:

  • Please keep in mind how many rapes are not reported. Your percentage of estimated false rape accusations would be even lower if more actual rapes were reported. Which they aren’t. Why? Well, that brings me to my next point.
  • Rape culture. That’s right, kiddos, there is a culture around rape, and it’s pretty much targeted towards women.
  • What makes rape and false rape accusations different besides statistics? There is no false rape accusation “culture”.
  • False rape accusations are actions of an individual and are not purported and promoted and supported and encouraged by an at-large culture. Rape fucking is.
  • Here’s another thing.

  • This graphic is from a year ago and is described as follows.
  • The above graphic, passed along by the Huffington Post’s Laura Bassett, was put together by the Enliven Project using data from Department of Justice’s National Crime Victimization Survey and FBI reports. It drives home extremely well the fact that false rape accusations are exceedingly rare, despite what media reports might suggest. Almost as rare are cases when rapists actually go to jail.
  •  Update: Rape statistics are notoriously hard to collect, and Amanda Marcotte has a compelling critique of the methods used here, which Enliven describes in more detail here. So while the phenomena described here are real (and Marcotte argues that, if anything, the chart exaggerates the number of false accusations), be aware that the exact numbers are subject to dispute.
  • Bottom line?
  • You, my friend, attempted to deliberately make false rape allegations seem a lot more commonplace than they actually are.
  • The majority of us are too busy being terrified of being raped to bother with this bullshit. How dare you try to insinuate otherwise. How fucking dare you.
  • How dare you take these statistics (or better yet not even do your research) and think “I’m going to try to make women feel like shit for feeling like their fear of rape is one of the more important issues out there”.
  • How. Fucking. Dare you.

And I KNOW that’s what you did. How?? Because the OP’s graphic is a fucking offensive rip off of/parody of/shot at something feminists and rape-battlers created because they were sick and goddamn tired of being told how to avoid being raped.

  • Rape is an act of violence and control. To compare false rape allegations— cultureless and fucking RARE and ISOLATED INCIDENTS— to rape itself is beyond insulting and shitty and the actions of an asshole and you should feel fucking ashamed.

Disclaimer because I know some people will try to say this: Yes, I know false rape allegations happen. I know women threaten them. Probably some men, too. I also know men and NB/trans individuals are raped, as well. These are all terrible truths but none of them detract from anything that I just talked about.

And you’re welcome to fucking fight me on this.

Three simple rules in life. 1. If you do not go after what you want, you’ll never have it. 2. If you do not ask, the answer will always be no. 3. If you do not step forward, you will always be in the same place.

fun things to do in front of nerdy boys

intentionally mix up zelda and link
mispronounce “anime”
refer to anime as “japanese kids cartoons”
pronounce pokemon as pokey-mon
respond to everything they say with “oh yeah my baby brother likes that!”

I am a nerdy boy and I assure you the only reactions you would get from this are crying or outbursts of rage

you act like your tears aren’t EXACTLY what i want
