A woman armed with an iron rod beat to death a man who raped her five-year-old daughter in Jharkhand, police said Monday.
On one hand, I’m not going to advocate vigilante justice.
On the other…. I can’t honestly say I’d do any different if I were that mother.
She also surrendered to the police on her own. That says a lot of things about her strong character and the law enforcement system. She didn’t trust it to give her justice, but she recognized its authority. I wonder what her sentence is going to be/what will happen to her daughter if she goes to jail…
Most of the time, in cases like this, the parent sees little to no time in prison. Hopefully this will be the case. Ughhhh…. my heart breaks for her and for her little girl.
Rape culture doesn’t exist in the United States on any significant, meaningful level.
Sorry to disappoint you.
remember when you said you didn’t think it was criminal for someone to rape a drunk woman
Seeing as I’ve never said that, I must say I do not remember.
i’m really mad i cropped this picture so tightly because i should have kept your url in there but
lmao o o o o
"stop whining about rape culture" "it doesn’t exist" "quit complaining"
"Welcome to the 21st century, where being smart is a bigger crime than raping a human being"
I just had a very odd chat on omegle, I put my interest as “feminism”. Here’s one section I found slightly disturbing. It went on for a while, maybe I’ll add the whole chat to a “Read More” post.
I mean he’s actually trying to compare MURDER AND RAPE to “killing a man’s heart”.
I’d laugh if this wasn’t so terrifying.
What’s most frightening about this is that he’s not even saying that “men get raped and murdered because of the friendzone”, he’s saying “men rape and murder women because of the friendzone”. He says “the friendzone is as bad to men as being raped and murdered is to women” And the other person goes “how so?” And they respond with “Women can get raped and murdered by men who have been friendzoned.”
So let’s see. According to this guy: men rape and kill women. Women friendzone men. Men rape and kill women more.
Yes. What a deadly and powerful weapon women have to threaten men with.
I also love how he uses male violence against women as proof of how badly men are hurt. So many rapists and abusers have this justification used to defend them. They would NEVER abuse or rape if their victim didn’t MAKE them, if their victim didn’t ANGER them, if their victim didn’t LEAD THEM ON. -_- That they did such a horrible thing is PROOF that their victim did an even more horrible thing to them!
Trigger warning for discussion of rape and rape culture. My friend Anne Thériault of The Belle Jar wrote a post a few days ago about an incident at University of Ottawa wherein several male members…
Listen up, guys. Two women are being threatened with a lawsuit for exposing a disgusting conversation by a bunch of dudebros/potential rapists who talked about how a woman should suffer sexual violence because she beat a guy in an election. I repeat: they are telling her she must take down the screenshots of actual things they said about how someone should “punish her with their shaft” or they will sue.
This is the most heinous case of silencing women in order to hold up rape culture I’ve seen in a long time. So let’s fight back by posting these screenshots everywhere. Also, if you’re in Ottowa, beware of these guys. They’re all potential rapists.
If you rape someone, it doesn’t matter that you’re only 16.
If you rape someone, it doesn’t matter that you cry like a child in court.
If you rape someone, it doesn’t matter that you had a promising future.
if you rape someone, it doesn’t matter that your life is destroyed.
If you rape someone, it should haunt you for the rest of your life.
You raped someone.
You deserve every ounce of justice we can place upon you in court of law.
I’m wearing a shirt that reads “Kill Me”.
If you saw me at a party or on the street would you promptly murder me?
What about if I had a few drinks? What if I was walking alone at night?
I’m guessing that you wouldn’t if you’re a sane individual.
The cops wouldn’t overlook your crime because of what I’m wearing because that’s silly. I wasn’t literally asking for you to kill me based on my choice of clothing. Who would take that defense seriously?
My friends wouldn’t blame me for being murdered and my killer would be behind bars almost instantly.
So, why is it okay to rape someone because they’re wearing revealing clothes? Why does THEIR choice of clothing excuse THEIR attacker?
It doesn’t. You’re silly if you think otherwise.
The less guilt on the attacker. The more guilt on victim.
Stop. Victim. Blaming.
Reblogging this again because it’s perfect.
I love you.
