I'm a writer and tv junkie who loves science fiction and cheesy romance. Currently, the state of modern American culture has me slightly baffled. Feminist by choice, democrat by necessity, I also have a film degree which is sitting on an imaginary shelf under thick layers of self-doubt and procrastination. Despite this, I'm friendly. Feel free to pet my askbox :P

This is what a REAL rape prevention campaign looks like

All the awards.

DO ME A HUGE FAVOR AND REBLOG THIS!


This is perfection in a campaign

I love how they included a situation where a guy could’ve gotten raped. People don’t seem to realize that males get raped too. It’s less common, but it happens. That is what sets this campaign apart from others.

In the famous scene where the “Marseillaise” is sung over the German song “Watch on the Rhine”, many of the extras had real tears in their eyes; a large number of them were actual refugees from Nazi persecution in Germany and elsewhere in Europe and were overcome by the emotions the scene brought out.
Casablanca (1942)

Marry me, girl, be the fairy to the world
Be my very own constellation
A teenage bride with a baby inside 
Getting high on information
And buy me a star on the boulevard 
It’s Californication

Space may be the final frontier 
But it’s made in a Hollywood basement
Cobain can you hear the spheres
Singing songs off station to station
And Alderaan’s not far away
It’s Californication

"Think about how helpful it is for a rapist if we consider rape an unseemly topic, one that is too frightening, one that is too complex, one that is too murky, too difficult to prosecute, or simply not worth it. What kind of society do we end up with? We end up with a society where schools and institutions settle cases of sexual violence with as little transparency, as little accountability and as little exposure as possible. A society where it is so hard for the anti-violence movement to come together because in order to compete for limited funding, organizations must stand out, which means by definition they must stand alone. We end up with a society where although, thank God, Congress recently reauthorized the Violence Against Women Act, 22 senators and 138 congressmen voted against it. It’s unconscionable. - Mariska Hargitay

A Gitmo Prisoner Alleges He Has Been Tortured Under Obama

The torture began under President George W. Bush, Gitmo prisoner Imad Abdullah Hassan alleges. It left him broken. And the torture continues under President Obama. The 34-year-old Yemeni has been a prisoner for 12 years. No charges have ever been filed against him. Though cleared for release five years ago, he remains captive. And in his telling, he is tortured daily by American medical staff and guards.
His lawsuit is Imad Abdullah Hassan v. Barack Obama. Be forewarned that his declaration, which comes via the sworn statement of his attorney, is extremely graphic. 
Decide for yourself whether his treatment constitutes torture.
