I practice the sex-positive, slur-reclaiming kind of feminism, and if you don't like that, go away.

The footage of former Ravens running back Ray Rice punching his then-fiancée in the face started a much-needed conversation about domestic violence. This comedian took a completely different approach with a “Ray Rice Inspired Makeup Tutorial” that could’ve gone so incredibly wrong but instead gets it so so right.

People who use a lack of education to justify subjecting poor people to poverty are fucking revolting. They’ve invented a system wherein poor people cannot obtain a quality education because they are poor and then they use that lack of education to justify their continued poverty. It’s self-sustaining, vile, oppressive, and a fundamental tenet of modern American conservativism.

I think this is a really interesting study for all the wrong reasons. If you watch the video the whole way through, you’ll notice a pattern, that this asshole mostly targets girls who are by themselves, and that about 10 or so of these women who say ‘no’ to this guy, feel the need to justify their decision with an ‘I have a boyfriend’ or ‘I’m married’ which this asshole immediately accepts. Oh and he also lulls the girls into a false sense of security by starting with ‘I think you’re really cute’ and little compliments so that they’ll listen to what he has to say. Emotional manipulation, well done.  Worse still, some girls feel the need to apologize for declining his proposition. I understand that this was a social experiment, and that the same was done with a woman who was asking men the same question, but in both cases I’d call that some form of harassment, though admittedly I’m more inclined to call it that when the man was asking women. That’s not “double standards,” though, that’s rape culture. And I think that’s exactly what has been adequately described in this video, even if it was all done in a “affable and non-threatening manner.”

Since 1980, 3000 native Canadian women have been murdered/gone missing. Indigenous women are five times more likely than other women to die as a result of violence. Sixty percent of known perpetrators are white men.

Justice for all Indigenous Women! by Jessica Sabogal | Montréal

1 in 3 Native American women are raped within their lifetime, and are at extreme risk of violence from non-native (white) men. x x x

Despite push from the UN for a national inquiry, Canada continues to largely ignore the violence against Native Women. x
