Early female sexuality, AKA why statutory rape laws are important

misandry-mermaid:

  • Before age 15, “a majority of first intercourse experiences among females are reported to be non-voluntary*.” [source]
  • A detailed qualitative study of girls’ loss of virginity found that they “were almost all quite negative (and, in some cases, horrific).* [source]
  • Of adolescents engaging in oral sex only, girls were twice as likely as boys to report feeling bad about themselves and nearly three times as likely to feel used. [source]
  • Fathers of babies born to teens are often significantly older than their female partners. It is estimated that, among girls who have given birth to a child by age 15, 39 percent of the fathers are between the ages of 20 and 29.* [source]
  • The age gap between teen mothers and their male partners is particularly striking among the youngest adolescents. Among mothers ages 11 to 12, fathers are on average 9.8 years older, and among mothers ages 13 to 14, fathers are on average 4.6 years older.* [source]

*AKA rape, but notice the soft, diminishing language used.

The mentally ill are made to feel like burdens on the people around them. They are made to feel hated. They are made to feel less worthy than their neurotypical friends and family. Then people have the nerve to ask why they want to kill themselves, or why they feel so distraught and helpless?

But of course, whether they attempt, or succeed, everything is made about how much the family and friends cared about the victim, instead of their willful contribution to the abuse of the mentally ill.

Hell yeah, I’m designing for AAW this year.
Step 1: Save that date.
Step 2: Pretend this image is a hot potato and share it all over the place.

friendly reminder that the only reason fictional characters “choose” anything is because real actual people write them that way

destroy media’s idea of asian girls being petite, pale-skinned waifs with bobbed hair and blunt bangs who are either the quiet fighter or a submissive giggly teen

destroy the fetishizing and infantilizing of asian girls

but at the same time appreciate asian girls who are like that, but appreciate them for themselves and not for some weird stereotypical fetish whatsit exoticism.

Allow Asian girls to be themselves at all costs.

Prenez un déodorant. L’un destiné aux hommes, l’autre aux femmes. L’effet recherché est le même. L’effet produit aussi. Mais si vous êtes une femme, vous paierez plus cher.

Sur le Tumblr Woman Tax, Géraldine Franck, une féministe faisant partie du collectif Georgette Sand, répertorie des exemples de cette inégalité.

musingsofanawkwardblackgirl:

Rape by definition means non-consensual.
That means there was no consent.
That means the victim did not want it.
They didn’t put themselves I’m the situation, that’s consent.
They did not ask for it in any way, that’s consent.
They have no responsibility to take, that implies consent.
Stop diminishing the crimes that happen to women, men, and children every minute.
