To all those who don’t think the rape joke was a problem, or rape jokes are a problem.
I get it, you’re a decent guy. I can even believe it. You’ve never raped anybody. You would NEVER rape anybody. You’re upset that all these feminists are trying to accuse you of doing something or connect you to doing something that, as far as you’re concerned, you’ve never done and would never condone.
And they’ve told you about triggers, and PTSD, and how one in six women is a survivor, and you get it. You do. But you can’t let every time someone gets all upset get in the way of you having a good time, right?
So fine. If all those arguments aren’t going anything for you, let me tell you this. And I tell you this because I genuinely believe you mean it when you say you don’t want to hurt anybody, and you don’t see the harm, and that it’s important to you to do your best to be a decent and good person. And I genuinely believe you when you say you would never associate with a rapist and you think rape really is a very bad thing.
Because this is why I refuse to take rape jokes sitting down-
6% of college age men, slightly over 1 in 20, will admit to raping someone in anonymous surveys, as long as the word “rape” isn’t used in the description of the act.
6% of Penny Arcade’s target demographic will admit to actually being rapists when asked.
A lot of people accuse feminists of thinking that all men are rapists. That’s not true. But do you know who think all men are rapists?
They really do. In psychological study, the profiling, the studies, it comes out again and again.
Virtually all rapists genuinely believe that all men rape, and other men just keep it hushed up better. And more, these people who really are rapists are constantly reaffirmed in their belief about the rest of mankind being rapists like them by things like rape jokes, that dismiss and normalize the idea of rape.
If one in twenty guys is a real and true rapist, and you have any amount of social activity with other guys like yourself, really cool guy, then it is almost a statistical certainty that one time hanging out with friends and their friends, playing Halo with a bunch of guys online, in a WoW guild, or elsewhere, you were talking to a rapist. Not your fault. You can’t tell a rapist apart any better than anyone else can. It’s not like they announce themselves.
But, here’s the thing. It’s very likely that in some of these interactions with these guys, at some point or another someone told a rape joke. You, decent guy that you are, understood that they didn’t mean it, and it was just a joke. And so you laughed.
And, decent guy who would never condone rape, who would step in and stop rape if he saw it, who understands that rape is awful and wrong and bad, when you laughed?
That rapist who was in the group with you, that rapist thought that you were on his side. That rapist knew that you were a rapist like him. And he felt validated, and he felt he was among his comrades.
You. The rapist’s comrade.
And if that doesn’t make you feel sick to your stomach, if that doesn’t make you want to throw up, if that doesn’t disturb you or bother you or make you feel like maybe you should at least consider not participating in that kind of humor anymore…
Well, maybe you aren’t as opposed to rapists as you claim.

THIS IS THE BEST THING I HAVE EVER READ.
never let a white guy tell you shit when you’re walking or driving throw them the finger or roll down your window and yell at them because they go through life thinking they’re in charge and you won’t step to them
For a second I thought “Dean Winchester”
Now I’m thinking “Captain John Hamish Watson of the Fifth Northumberland Fussilers” because hot fucking damn

IM SO FUCKING MAD I JUST MADE THAT EXACT FUCKING FACE GOD DAMNIT
"don’t play the anxiety card"
YOU THINK THAT I USE ANXIETY AS AN EXCUSE?!
JUST BECAUSE I START TO PANIC WHEN YOU ASK ME TO DO CERTAIN THINGS DOESN’T MEAN I’M SIMPLY USING IT AS AN ESCAPE
MAYBE, JUST MAYBE, THE THINGS YOU ASK ME TO DO CAUSE ME ANXIETY, AND WHEN YOU CONFRONT ME ABOUT IT AND YELL AT ME FOR IT IT JUST MAKES IT WORSE
IT’S NOT A FUCKING CARD
Any parent that does this is a shitty one
Hay, the different types of BDSM relationships are basically Master and slave, Dominant and submissive, Owner and pet and Daddy Dom and little girl. This is just a rough overview so it dosnt apply to every situation but ill try and explain some simple parts. When you have a Master and slave that is the most extreme of BDSM pairings, the slave is complete property of the master and has very very little say in what they do and dont do. That means you ask permission to do everything and i mean everything. Slaves generally are not permitted to wear clothing, sit on furniture, sleep in bed etc. without strict permission. This is complete ownership so no they arnt in a couple, they are Master and slave. A Dominant and submissive is a more relaxed form of master and slave. There are still strict rules, but they are agreed on together and a sub can object to most things if they choose. Dom and sub is what I do and we are very much a couple we do lots of couple things like everyone else we just have rules and do other domination play. Owner and pet is a submissive who like to be treated like a little animal, they like to be patted, played with, tickled, hugged and sit by there Owner Etc. its a form of submission that just involves some animal play. Generally very light BDSM more focus on being loved like a little pet. Daddy Dom/little girl is not incest play or anything overtly sexual. Its when a sub likes to be a little person, they like to have nice stuffed teddys and play and color and build forts and watch nice movies etc. with there Daddy Dom who acts as a guiding and loving figure. So Daddy Dom/little girl will be a couple. BDSM generally dosnt sort of conform to words like couple and such because we have our own definitions that we love. Every BDSM relationship is a committed one though, it may not be “couple” but it has its own form of love and trust. Hope that answered things somewhat.
For some reason a bird speaking Japanese is mildly off putting.
> Literal translation
Bird:” ‘Uhm Hello, this is the Ono family.”
Bird: “What’s wrong?”
Owner: “Abe-chan, you’re a little too early. Once the phone’s picked up, then properly say hello.”
Bird: “Okay, understood.”
Owner: “Do you really understand? I’m counting on you. Hello, this is the Ono family residence in Gifu.”]
Bird: “Okay, I understand!”
Owner: “Got it.”
> That’s clearly some sort of Pokemon.
> Off-putting? It’s like birds were meant to speak Japanese!
> For some reason it’s never occurred to me that birds can mimic languages other than English. It’s so cool, though!
The world will soon understand why birds are so awesome and deserve to be our overlords.
Avis Iaponice loquitur!
truly what makes someone be so petty and bitter? what makes them see a post like “sherlock is gay” and be unable to acknowledge it and go on with their life without trying to ruin someone else’s party? why are people so aggressively anti-queer that they won’t even allow anyone…
