duskroller: Who gives 2fucks if a kid has to learn what rape is? I mean yeah it'll be inappropriate but if a parent us letting a kid on the internet without any restrictions it's their own damn fault, and what's wrong with putting down rape jokes?

The creator of the image you’re complaining about already issued an apology on this matter, and I have also long since deleted my original response out of courtesy for them.

You’d do yourself a favor to read through the content of the link above.  Not only does it contain useful information about the social and psychological factors that it takes to create a person capable of committing violent crime, but it also explains why spreading mass hysteria about “rape culture” (which even RAINN is against the teaching off, and I’m pretty sure they know a lot more about rape as an issue than you do) does more harm to women than good.

Secondly, it isn’t your place to decide what anyone is and is not allowed to express, especially when many rape victims use humor as a means of coping with what happened to them.  To be able to make light of a traumatic event is a powerful form of fear management.

Also, literally the only time I hear anything about “rape jokes” is when I see teenage, piss-poor excuses for “feminists” complaining about them.  There’s also a tremendous difference between malicious speech, and lampooning an issue in order to understand it, and express our views of it in a more constructive, socially-acceptable manner.

Now, while it’s already part of the content in the link above, take a moment to watch this video (and actually watch all of it - don’t just sit through the first minute, then disregard it).  George Carlin was a highly respected, highly celebrated comedian that made his livelihood from observing our culture, and our behavior, and examining it in a thoughtful, humorous manner.  It’s just a shame he’s no longer around, as I’m sure he would have a field day with the bullshit that’s being constantly smeared all over tumblr.

I will lastly leave you with this link, which provides a wealth of information regarding actual statistics surrounding raped and violent crime (which show that rape is nowhere near the “epidemic” that people on tumblr would have us believe it to be).

I used to be a feminist, honey.  But then I saw the despicable behavior being done in its name.  That label is too sullied to use anymore, especially when it has been appropriated by people that don’t seem to want to allow women to be anything other than potential victims.  All rampant fear-mongering does is try to force women to remain subservient to the exact, outdated mindset that they’re supposed to be against.  That’s not helping women become stronger.  That’s literally using intimidation and peer pressure to try to make them weaker.

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again:

Feminism is supposed to be empowering, not to send us cowering.

Parents shouldn’t have to explain rape to their kids, that’s what Hello Kitty is for. Although, even she got it wrong, portraying it as being only a man-on-woman crime.

Of course, their definition of necklace is just… how did this slip past the editor? Or was the editor the one who put it in?

I’m literally sitting here with my mouth agape.  I thought I had already seen the most baffling Hello Kitty merchandise imaginable, but this takes the cake by a long shot.

How…how in the HELL was this even approved for publishing??  If anything, that’s the definition of necklacing, not “necklace” (and by the way, never look that term up on Google).  Either way, it sure as fuck doesn’t belong in a Hello Kitty dictionary.

The creator of the image you’re complaining about already issued an apology on this matter, and I have also long since deleted my original response out of courtesy for them.  Frankly, I’m astounded that you’re actually, seriously asking that.  You’re basically implying that it’s perfectly alright to subject children to a very adult topic unnecessarily, which would put their parents on the spot, and which they wouldn’t likely be ready to fully comprehend at that time.  You know who gives “2fucks”?  THEIR FUCKING PARENTS.

Zombie 4 (aka Zombie 4: After Death; After Death; Oltre la morte; Zombie Flesheaters 3) (1989)
Cropped version of this poster.
This movie taught me a valuable lesson about being more selective when trying to acquire rare VHS tapes.I was sent this film in a German VHS clamshell case, and the film itself was in English, with Japanese subtitles.I’m not even kidding.  I’ll take a few pictures of it if I ever find the damn thing.
