Rape culture

is when a strange man follows you home from work, tries to break into your house, runs away, and the cops still don't fugging believe you even with the perv's running car still in the driveway!!!!

I shit you not, this was just related to me by my barber.

W. T. F.

Will the US get militarily involved in Ukraine?

Please feel free to explain your answer below.

If no, why not?

If yes, when will we get involved?

Which aspect of patriarchy is the most sinister?

For me it's how the patriarchy costs this country intellectual capital by discouraging women from pursuing traditionally male career choices if that's what they want to do.

Then on top of it, the patriarchy pays them less for it.

So what's your biggest bug about the patriarchy (I know there's too much to choose from)?

Most appropriate punishment poll

Which is the most appropriate punishment for a murdering child rapist?

Will Russia invade Eastern Ukraine?

The 20% hide penalty seems overly harsh.

Why not 10% instead?

Just seems more fair especially since the jury system is stacked against the defendant from the get-go due to the math of the new 7 jury system and the inherent subjectivity of crowd sourced enforcement.


Poetry Poll

"As you'll answer it, take heed
This Slave commit no Violence upon
Himself. I've been deceiv'd. The Publick Safety
Requires he should be more confin'd; and none,
No not the Princes self, permitted to
Confer with him. I'll quit you to the King.
Vile and ingrate! too late thou shalt repent
The base Injustice thou hast done my Love:
Yes, thou shalt know, spite of thy past Distress,
And all those Ills which thou so long hast mourn'd;
Heav'n has no Rage, like Love to Hatred turn'd,
Nor Hell a Fury, like a Woman scorn'd."

-William Cosgrieve
The Mourning Bride, 1697

I have a cousin who's a junkie

Heroin's got its claws in her real deep.

She's been in and out of jail so much, she thinks it's nothing but a big party.

She lies, she steals, she makes everyone around her miserable.

Support groups, half-way houses, therapy- nothing gets to her. Not even the stress that hastened her father's succumbing to cancer.

Yesterday she got caught drunk driving with her unbuckled baby in the back seat.

I hope they lock her up for good, she gets the help she needs, or she finally kicks the bucket (to put it politely).

I hope her kid never knows who she is; he deserves much more than that.

But most relevantly to this board, I think my cousin is just one example of our failed drug policy. Maybe she could have been helped had she grown up in a nation that actually cares.

Too damn bad it's all moot at this point- just another junkie that fell through the cracks...


What does a world without rape culture look like?

Is it even imaginable or attainable?

How would it affect the male/female sexual dynamic?

Would it mean that playing 'hard to get' would go away?

Where exactly do the boundaries lie? If the boundaries are personal, how do we define them universally?

That will be all. Also- hi
