Anonymous asked: 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.

sexhaver:

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

you kids these days with your rapidly growing concern for the state of the world and your knowledge of important issues at increasingly younger ages despite having been told your opinions don’t matter by the adults who put you in these situations

I think that just because a woman wears something sexy, it doesn’t mean she’s selling sex. I think that if it’s coming from you,if it’s coming from your own personal style and what you wanna say,then i think it’s fine.

Arturo is a 29-year-old male polar bear currently living in Argentina’s Mendoza Zoo. He is suffering in 40C (104F) heat in an enclosure that has just 20 inches of water for him to swim in and has as a consequence been displaying worrying behavior.

Please sign this petition or at least spread the word in order to have Arturo transferred to a zoo in Canada which has better facilities for an animal that is used to polar conditions.
