I'm 23, figuring out my life one day at a time. I like pretty things and cupcakes. Also boobs. Boobs are nice. And so are dinosaurs. Dinosaurs with boobs....not so much. They/their pronouns please, she/her is ok though.

Columbia University Student Will Drag Her Mattress Around Campus Until Her Rapist Is Gone

"I think the act of carrying something that is normally found in our bedroom out into the light is supposed to mirror the way I’ve talked to the media and talked to different news channels, etc," Emma continues in the full video which you can watch here. 

So, I just want to go into HOW MUCH Columbia and the NYPD has failed, and revictimized, Emma Sulkowitz.

In her school hearing, Sulkowitz ” had to explain to the three administrators on the panel how anal rape worked. She told them she had been hit across the face, choked and pinned down, but, she said, one still seemed confused about how it was possible for someone to penetrate her there without lubricant. Sulkowicz said she had to draw them a diagram.”

"Her best friend was meant to be at the hearing; Sulkowicz had chosen her as her one “supporter.” But her friend was kicked out of that role for talking about the case, according to Sulkowicz, in violation of the university’s confidentiality policy. As punishment, her friend was also put on probation and made to write two reflection papers: one from the perspective of Sulkowicz and another from the accused."

FROM THE PERSPECTIVE
OF HER FRIEND’S RAPIST

- Two other women at Columbia have accused this guy of sexual assault/rape. But he’s been found not responsible in all instances, and is still on campus

- When she went to the police, one officer said: “”You invited him into your room. That’s not the legal definition of rape.”

- Another officer told her friends, who came with her: ““For every single rape I’ve had, I’ve had 20 that are total bull——,” he added. “It’s also my type of job to get to the truth. If that means being harsh about it, that’s what I do.”

And that’s.
Why.
People.
Don’t.
REPORT.

I want to set literally everything on fire.

As Yahoo News Reports: 

Zunera once dreamed of becoming a computer engineer. Instead, aged 16, she was tricked into prostitution in the UAE, beginning a four-year nightmare of cruelty, violence and rape.
Campaigners and officials say hundreds of young Pakistani women are also trafficked every year to supply the thriving sex trade in the brothels and nightclubs of Dubai. Zunera and her sister Shaista were two of them.
More than a year after she escaped, Zunera’s pain is still etched into her stumbling, hesitant voice — and also into her body, which bears the marks of countless beatings.
Vivid, angry scars run the length of her legs from ankle to hip, reminders of a botched operation after she was shot three times by the gang who trafficked her.
Zunera and Shaista managed to escape their tormentors in 2013 but still live in hiding in a two-room house in a slum, fearing revenge attacks. AFP is withholding their full names and precise whereabouts for their safety.
Their ordeal began in her hometown in Punjab province, when the family got into money trouble and a neighbour named Ayesha offered the sisters domestic work.
After a while Ayesha suggested she take the sisters to Dubai to work in her beauty parlour, getting fake papers to help the underage Zunera leave Pakistan.
Shaista is so traumatised by her experiences she can barely recount her harrowing ordeal.
Fighting back tears, Zunera revealed the horror that awaited them at Dubai.
"Ayesha took us to the lavatories at the airport and told us that we will be serving her clients for sex," Zunera told AFP.
"We started crying and then she told us that we travelled on fake documents and if we said anything we would be handed over to police right there."
Faced with no alternative, the sisters went with Ayesha, thinking they could just avoid having sex with clients.
"The first time, she herself was present in the room and made us do what the clients wanted. We were raped in front of her and with her assistance," Zunera said.
"She used to beat one of us and ask the other sister to talk on phone to our parents, threatening to kill us if we revealed anything about the brothel," Zunera recalled.
From time to time Ayesha brought the women back to Pakistan to renew their visas, frightening them into silence by telling them she would kill their whole families if they revealed the life they had been tricked into.
But eventually in March 2013 the sisters plucked up the courage to share their ordeal to their elder sister Qamar, who eventually obtained their freedom — but at a cost.

Why are aboriginal women more likely to get abused by white men? In the TEDx video (Violence Against Native Women is Not Traditional) the speaker stated that 70% of the perpetrators are white and male.

Colonialism. The bodies of Aboriginal women are viewed as pieces of land for invasion and conquest (in a sexual manner). This was perpetuated in the pornographic video game Custer’s Revenge, where the player attempts to capture a “squaw,” tie her to a tree, and rape her.The video game sold 80,000 copies. 

[rape cw, racial slurs cw]

One victim of the “game” said: “I was attacked by two white men and from the beginning they let me know they hated my people … And they let me know that the rape of a ‘squaw’ by white men was practically honored by white society. In fact, it had been made into a video game called ‘Custer’s Last Stand’ [sic]. They held me down and as one was running the tip of his knife across my face and throat he said, ‘Do you want to play Custer’s Last Stand ? It’s great, you lose but you don’t care, do you? You like a little pain, don’t you, squaw?’ They both laughed and then he said, ‘There is a lot of cock in Custer’s Last Stand. You should be grateful, squaw, that All-American boys like us want you. Maybe we will tie you to a tree and start a fire around you.”

"I call it hunting - non-natives come here hunting. They know they can come onto our lands and rape us with impunity because they know that we can’t touch them." - Lisa Brunner, rape survivor advocate

The same could not be said of white men, who raped Native women at epidemic rates. Between 1851 and 1852, California spent over one million dollars hiring soldiers to exterminate Natives. In one typical expedition, a group of invading soldiers demanded that all the young women be given to them for sexual service. When they discovered that the young women had already managed to escape, the soldiers raped the old women instead. Other accounts of colonial sexual abuse include the following:

When I was in the boat I captured a beautiful Carib woman…I conceived desire to take pleasure… .I took a rope and thrashed her well, for which she raised such unheard screams that you would not have believed your ears. Finally we came to an agreement in such a manner that I can tell you that she seemed to have been brought up in a school of harlots.

Two of the best looking of the squaws were lying in such a position, and from the appearance of the genital organs and of their wounds, there can be no doubt that they were first ravished and then shot dead. Nearly all of the dead were mutilated.

One woman, big with child, rushed into the church, clasping the alter and crying for mercy for herself and unborn babe. She was followed, and fell pierced with a dozen lances… [T]he child was torn alive from the yet palpitating body of its mother, first plunged into the holy water to be baptized, and immediately its brains were dashed out against a wall.

The Christians attacked them with buffets and beatings… . Then they behaved with such temerity and shamelessness that the most powerful ruler of the island had to see his own wife raped by a Christian officer.

I heard one man say that he had cut a woman’s private parts out, and had them for exhibition on a stick… . I also heard of numerous instances in which men had cut out the private parts of females, and stretched them over their saddle-bows and some of them over their hats.

The attitudes on display in the examples above have changed very little over the centuries. In 1982, a white man named Stuart Kasten marketed a video game called Custer’s Revenge, in which players score points each time they, as Custer, rape an Indian woman. The game’s slogan is, “When you score, you score.” Kasten has deceptively described the game as “a fun sequence where the woman is enjoying a sexual act willingly.”

It was attempted rape by Four in her fear simulation.

junglemean

….Why would they…that wasn’t rape in the book, if I remember right? It was just a fear of being intimate in general. Ick. Icky ick ick.

If you’re going to see Divergent, be aware that it contains a fairly unexpected and graphic rape scene.

They made a bad story even worse. That’s just…wow. Wow. 

Reblogging this because some of you guys might have planned to see this movie. 

Is it an actual rape scene, or attempted rape? Cause the latter was actually in the book, and I’m wondering if they decided to make it even worse.

Paradise Lost (For people who don’t wanna read Paradise Lost)

Book I

Hi! I’m Milton! I’mma tel you about Genesis because I somehow think I tell the story better than the Bible (and I kinda do). I’m gonna thank the muses for a while, even though I’m Christian and I’m not supposed to be doing that pagan ass shit. Aight, time for the story: there was a war in Heaven that it would be really cool if I showed you, but I’m not gonna, cause fuck you. Satan tried to stand up against God and we all know how well that went (hint: poorly), so God made Hell just to hold him and his cronies and it’s not really in the core of the Earth cause Earth isn’t a thing yet; it’s just kind of there? Don’t think about it too hard. All the Demons are sitting around having a meeting about how much it sucks that they’re in Hell now and for some reason Satan is still in charge, even though that ended super badly last time. Satan is really cool; I totally have a boner for him, and I use him to say all the anti-parliamentary things I really wanna say but can’t cause they’re throw me in jail again, and he says chill shit like “Better to reign in Hell than serve in Heaven” because hell yeah Satan! Also it gets really confusing because there’s a dude named Beelzebub and that’s another name for Satan but it’s not him for some reason; also a lot of other old gods are here for some reason? Apparently I think different gods are actually demons, but only those weird Egyptian and Middle Eastern gods, not the good Greco-Roman ones cause I’m actually kind of an asshole.

Book II

The meeting is still fucking going on for some reason. Satan has heard that God is up to some new shit and wants to find out what it is. He very graciously volunteers to be the scout (really I think he’s just tired of this circle jerk of a meeting). Satan takes off for the surface and you get a sweet glimpse of what hell is like, all dark mountains and dark beautiful lakes and…oh sorry, This place is supposed to suck, right? Uh…it’s really hot. Yeah. Satan’s still fucking flying towards the gates of hell (apparently it’s a long ass flight). Alright, we’re finally there and there’s all kinds of crazy shit at the gate. There’s something that looks like a woman from the waist up, and then just has a terrible black gaping gash of tentacles or some shit and oh my god wtf look away! There’s Hell hounds circling her and barking like mad and every now and then they crawl back up into her uterus and are reborn over and over again (yeah this turns into a horror show for a while, Sorry). Then there’s a giant….thing that I as a poet can’t even fucking describe. Just know it’s big and scary and Satan is just standing there trying not to scream. The terror shape comes at him and tells him he can’t leave and then tries to kill him, and they have to be broken apart by the woman…thing, and it turns out her name is Sin and she’s Satan’s daughter who was born from his head before the war in Heaven and they had a thing and God (who’s a complete dick; you’ll see) just dropped her pregnant ass off at the gate after the war and told her not to move. So she gave birth to the horror shape alone, which is why her bottom half is all jacked up, and his name is Death, and the first thing he does after being born is chase her down and rape her, and the Hell hounds are their kids and it’s all horrible and incestuous and gross. Satan just wants to get as far away from this mess as possible, so he tells her he TOTALLY remembers her and he just needs to jet up to the surface real quick, but he’ll be RIGHT BACK, so if she could please give him the key, that’d be great. And since she’s his daughter/lover, she believes him (good job, God, ya dick), and gives him the key and he flies off and doesn’t look back because would you? There’s some more shit as Satan gets the fuck out of dodge, but it’s unimportant.

To be continued cause this is gonna get long as shit.
