11 ways to solve rape better than nail polish

The more we depend on women to prevent rape, the easier it is to blame them when it happens to them. Here’s a look at the well-documented ways we can actually stop rape. Maybe it’s time we invest a little more time and resources into implementing them before we send gallons of nail polish to colleges across the country.

I’ve known too many women to be raped, had nurses and liaison officers tell them that they had enough evidence, and then the police do fuck all to the rapist and let him walk free and continue his life as normal while the victim has to struggle every day to cope with the shit they put them through.

This has happened to too many women I love. Way too fucking many.

One person I know who was raped, the police even found CCTV footage of the actual incident, but apparently that wasn’t enough to convict him either.

Think about that.

jesus fucking christ okay the POINT of the date-rape drug-detecting nail polish is to help PREVENT rape. it doesn’t solve it by any means, but it sure as hell does help to make sure that women wearing it don’t get roofied. 

what you people need to get through your thick skulls is that the problem of rape isn’t ever going to be solved. teaching your sons not to rape is great, but you have to realize that the world is full of fucking psychopaths. you can teach the potential offenders not to become offenders, but giving potential victims a way to protect themselves is still fucking important. home security systems were invented to prevent burglaries and murders, and you don’t see anyone going “just teach people not to murder!!!” as though we don’t already do that, and like that fucking solves anything.

rape as part of the system of oppression can be solved, eventually. i believe that. but not all rape is part of oppression—some rape happens just because some psychopath wants to rape someone. there will ALWAYS be rapists and murderers and the like, and that’s not a problem than can be solved completely. you can’t take thoughts and intentions out of someone’s head. but you know what we CAN do? we can put a weapon in someone’s hand, we can eliminate the existing methods that rapists use, and we can prevent the action to protect people. i’m just being realistic here.

For me and my friends growing up, being told things like ‘you have to wear this because that’s what boys wear” or “dresses are for not for your body type” was frustrating and a pretty bad time.




The bottom line for me is, if someone feels happier and more comfortable in a particular ‘type’ of uniform, then that’s something that should be encouraged, not punished. Students have enough to focus on at school, having to fight to be yourself shouldn’t be added to that.



That’s why we’ve launched a new campaign called Gender is Not Uniform.

Fun shark attack facts:

  • In 1996, toilets injured 43,000 Americans a year. Sharks injured 13.
  • In 1996, 2,600 Americans were injured by room fresheners. Sharks injured 13.
  • In 1996, buckets and pails injured almost 11,000 Americans. Sharks injured 13.
  • For every human killed by a shark, humans kill approximately two million sharks.

Conclusions:

  1. Humans are assholes.
  2. Sharks are not assholes.
  3. Apparently everyone in 1996 lived in a real-life infomercial.

Steve once was on a hot date and noticed that a little kid in his date’s neighborhood was having a Blues Clues party, so he pulled the outfit out of his trunk (because he carried it with him everywhere) and crashed the party, giving that little kid the greatest god damned birthday party ever.

I am not making that up, that really happened. Steve is the perfect human being.
