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.

sometimes I get really stressed out because my body doesn’t match society’s expectations of beauty and sex appeal

and one night I was complaining about it to my sister and she said

"It’s not very punk rock to meet society’s expectations"

I think she changed my life

The joke isn’t that they’re cruel or bad at parenting or have any particular disdain for the world at large. They aren’t unkind to their neighbors or to the animals and their deeply devoted to their children and to each other.


The joke is that they’re happy.


The Addams Family is missing a lot of the typical sitcom tropes. There’s no mother-in-law jokes, no arguing over who’s supposed to fill what gender role, both Morticia and Gomez spend roughly equal amounts of time parenting the children and the most remarkable is the relationship between Morticia and Gomez. You see Morticia Addams and it really highlights how rare it is in family films and TV sitcoms to see a wife and mom character who isn’t like this “dissatisfied housewife always mad at my big dumb husband but I love him gonna stay with him because this is the world and he’s the best I can get and I am always right because wifes are the smart ones hey you can relate to this average American I guess”. Morticia and Gomez in contrast are usually working together you know rarely party A will keep something from party B but for the most part the form little schemes together as partners both are heads of the household and they almost never disrespect each other - remarkable in a genre where that’s usually the joke.

But the reason the Addams are happy is really beacause they exist outside of society’s expectations. Gomez is a man child who plays with his trains and that’s fine. Morticia fences with her husband and plays with weapons often and it doesn’t occur to them to care what other people think.

If you don’t think the Addams Family is the best possible aspiration for family life, I think you may wish to re-evaluate your long-term personal goals.

Absolutely true.  They were the happiest couple on TV when I was a kid, and their kids were happy at home.

Making a disclaimer about my soon to be lack of posting on Tumblr, especially in relation to current events, human rights issues, etc. because I will be returning to university this weekend for my last year (Hurrah!). If I post or reblog here, I don’t think I will be concentrating on serious issues.

THIS IS NOT TO SAY THAT I DO NOT CARE ABOUT THESE ISSUES.

I am doing this because I am essentially majoring in Human Rights and reading at least 200 pages a week about human rights violations and issues across the globe is absolutely exhausting and emotionally draining. If I do not step back and take a break from all the horrible things that are happening in the world, I end up being seriously depressed and hopeless which makes me a lot less likely to be able to do anything about these issues. So, if it seems like I’m posting less about the news or inequality gaps or injustices, it’s for my own health and sanity.
