On the left we have the lyrics from Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines. On the right we rape survivors participating in Project Unbreakable, showing the various things that were said to them by their rapist.
for people who are like “but it’s just a song…”
this is by far the most powerful photoset i’ve seen on this website with regards to blurred lines
Already reblogged this today but… This is why when this came on at a friend’s wedding reception (seriously.) I walked off the dance floor and got genuinely angry that they’d chosen it as part of the playlist and that everyone else just continued dancing after rolling their eyes. People need to realise that it is not just “a bit sexist” like a lot of other chart songs that we have to put up with but that it is genuinely disgusting. This post should be on the news, it should be seen by so many people that the song gets taken off radio stations and music channels. How have we let this man get away with this song? I sincerely hope it’s due to ignorance rather than a lack of care and a weakness for a catchy tune.
"After all, I would know.
I was only 14 when I learned to associate superheros with villians,
cept no one wants to believe that batman takes his violence into the bedroom.
I learned early on that someone’s got to pay for all those ‘good’ deeds,
and behind every superhero is the human punching bag he tests his strength on.
Cause he knows in the morning they’ll cover the bruises,
smile Joker’s grin and pretend they’ve never tasted metal.
Cause once his cape is back on- who would believe them?
Once his clothes were back on? I barely believed myself.”
So this has been a week from hell. I’m so tired but I’m also incredibly angry.
let’s talk about the physical affects of chronic anxiety because they’re hardly ever acknowledged
- upset stomach and vomiting
- muscle aches
- chronic fatigue
- hormonal problems
- irregular menstrual cycles
- lowered immune system
- shortness of breath
- heart palpitations
it is a lot more than just “feeling anxious “
This is realllllllllly weird lmao
This is really NORMAL.
Except we never see it-so it is terrifying and uncomfortable when it happens.
(Mostly because people would laugh or be unkind)
I own a sex shop. Once a woman bled on our chair during an interview. She was horrified and felt ashamed because it was in some way unprofessional. We weren’t bothered. We said ‘what better place to work on being ok with your body than at a feminist sex shop?’
Bleeding is normal and dealing with it is one of the most pervasive ways women are complicit in their silence.
Some men bleed too. How would you react to that? For many men who are Trans the act of bleeding is a security threat.
Fuck off with your lolz.
Reblogging again for above commentary ^^^^^
So happy that the above commentor included trans* men.
wow this is superfunny
I swear my heart literally feels like it’s breaking. I am so overwhelmed by heartache and the only things i can think is just kill yourself before anyone else you love dies but the last thing i want to do is to put the people i love and care for me, through this, i never want them to feel this kind of pain. And it breaks my heart even more to know that many of them already have.
