Q:Why are rape jokes so bad? They are jokes (even if the ones you described are like jokes and more like "Rape, LOL!"). They aren't saying "Let's rape people! Rape is good!" while being serious, they are making jokes. JOKES.
there are two types of people who hear rape jokes: rape victims and rapists. rape victims who hear the jokes are being told that what happened to them is funny to everyone else and that anyone who laughs at or tells those jokes is someone they can’t really trust any more. rapists who hear (or tell) the jokes are being told that everyone thinks what they’re doing is funny and so ordinary you can joke about it instead of being one of the most horrible and traumatic violent crimes possible and if the thought of making a rapist feel accepted doesnt make you sick you should probably reevaluate some key life decisions. and the other thing is that i have never heard a legitimately funny rape joke that doesnt just rely on the shock value of the word “rape” to get giggles out of people, so really anyone who makes rape jokes is saying “i care more about making shitty jokes than i do about making sure rape victims feel safe”. same goes for people who use “rape” as a synonym for “wrecked” or “owned” in everyday conversation, it normalizes it and makes rape victims feel unsafe and rapists feel accepted and it’s not that difficult at all to replace it in your vocabulary

clothing adjustments that need to happen
• shirts actually designed for girls with larger chests
• plus size clothing ACTUALLY intended to accommodate plus size people not just scaled up littler clothing
• clothes for tall people that won’t ride up
• pants for people with no butts
• cute bras in bigger sizes
•the fashion industry’s understanding that there’s lots of body types and every body type deserves to feel good in the clothes they wear
I really love her backstory and the iterations she’s gone through over the years.
Been trying to adapt/absorb a few new style/processes recently to try and break away from my art slump. This is my Rapoza rip-off haha.
Dave has a fantastic tutorial here:
they outlawed this move just because she was the only woman who could do it.
Surya Bonaly was infamous for (among other things) doing aone blade backflip in the 1998 Olympics, and is the ONLY figure skater who’s ever pulled that off. Not just the only woman, the only figure skater PERIOD. There’s like all ofthree Olympic-class male skaters who did backflips in their routines, and NONE of them could do it one blade.
But wait, there’s more.
Backflips were banned from the 1976 Olympics onward on the official justification that skating jumps are supposed to be landed on one blade, whereas backflips are landed on both blades. The unofficial justification was it was too dangerous, both to the athlete and to the rink — if you didn’t land it perfectly, you could not only break your ankle, but also punch THROUGH the ice surface.
Surya Bonaly was openly contemptuous of the figure skating judges, because they were a bunch of openly racist white men who always screwed her over by giving her lower scores than she deserved. That one-blade backflip was her ultimate FUCK YOU! to the Olympics judges, because she took an “illegal” backflip and made it legal by landing it on one blade. Pretty much DARING them to mark her down for being epic awesome and pulling a move that their precious coddled white girls didn’t have the guts to even think about.
They did, of course. White racism knows no bounds. But she utterly owned them with that move.
not only did she do a fucking backflip and land, she landed then went right into a triple loop. like holy fuck
Damn son I ain’t seen shit like that.
if i was in a fictional universe i wouldn’t be the main character i’d probably be that friend of the main character who lacks supernatural powers or special abilities but makes up for it with sarcasm and really lame one-liners

I’m stuck between wanting:
1. A long lasting relationship with my soulmate who supports me and protects me and is my partner and we are completely bad ass together and in love
2. Wanting to have casual sex and rip out the heart of everyone person I meet
3. Being independent and having a loyal dog while I’m married to my career
