heavy trigger warnings for rape.
all right, I’ve calmed down enough to post this, and hell fuckin’ no I ain’t blurrin’ out names.
hi my name is rachael, and this is why feminism is still needed. I have nothing else to say.
yooooo if you wanna know what the fuck i was so mad about, read the following and spread it please!!
this is physically painful to read oh my fucking god
i literally have no words to express my disgust
this is why kids and high schoolers can be the most vile people
Stream of consciousness after reading this:
What the actual fuck? How do these people come to exist? Was I ever this gloriously ignorant of anything? Will these kids have an epiphany one day? Gender Studies should be taught in high school. What/how are feminist issues discussed in Kylah’s house? Are they just being provocative for the sake of it? What are these kids’ parents like? I want to hear them talk specifically about the messages they get (from media, peers, any source) about gender disparities and also rape. How can you even argue with such an extreme ignorance and disconnect from reality? I’m mentally exhausted from reading this.
