To anyone who thinks that “teaching men not to rape” is the fix-all for sexual assault:

stoppity:

Do you…

  • Lock your windows?
  • Shut & lock your front door when you leave your house?
  • Shut & lock your car doors when you go into a store?
  • Use a bike lock when you leave your bike unattended?
  • Use a padlock on your work/school locker?
  • Avoid giving out your SSN, credit card number, bank account number, or any other type of sensitive information?
  • Avoid talking to strangers?

In other words, if you’re doing any of those things, you’re actively using safety measures to prevent yourself from becoming a victim of a crime. I cannot fathom why the concept of ‘safety measures’ is lost in discussions of sexual assault. No, it is not the fault of the victim. No, rape does not happen “for a reason.” However, rape is just like any other crime: there are preventative measures that can be taken to avoid becoming a victim of said crime.

Teaching men not to rape is not the answer here. A rapist is not going to stop midway through an assault because they remembered that once, in a high school sex ed class long ago, they were told that rape is a crime. The thought that rape is a teachably avoidable crime is absolutely asinine. 

Teaching men not to rape is not going to stop rape. Point blank period?

Teaching people how not to become victimized is the best, most effective way of preventing rape.

I wasn't saying you should change, you asked for honest opinions, so I was being honest.

But there are people who would say “People don’t like this thing that you do. You need to change it.” 

I am not someone who changes who I am for just anyone.

While the violence seems to have died down in Ferguson, Missouri, protests calling for civil disobedience continue.

During a peaceful protest march Saturday, organizers shared plans to halt St. Louis traffic on Labor Day.

At the march, organizers asked supporters to drive onto local highways around 4:30 p.m. Monday and stop their cars for four and a half minutes - symbolizing the four and a half hours Michael Brown’s body laid in the street after he was killed.

Zaki Baruti, the organizer says, “If some of our demands are not dealt with, you’ll see more civil disobedience in the spirit of Dr. King, because we’re not just going to sit by and just let injustice be constantly impacting us.”

Please tell me why this would be beneficial to anyone? These people are now demanding that random people just stop while they’re driving around and idle for over 4 minutes? In the middle of the fucking road? Look, I don’t care that you want to protest, but come on people, you’re literally going to become a hazard just because you think this will make people give a shit about your little protests.

Also, what the fuck is up with the demands? “If some of our demands are not dealt with, you’ll see more civil disobedience…”? So how again are we supposed to feel sorry for you? This is borderline terrorist threats here. And you wanted people to view the cops as being the “bad guys”? Do you people even think anymore? But hey, if you want to continue getting shot, that’s your problem. You’ll never get what you want if you keep acting like the unintelligible animals that the cops have stereotyped you as. Good fucking work, imbeciles. Any person with a fraction of a functioning cortex would call this plan idiotic and anyone who thinks it’s a good idea a fucking moron.

Get your heads out of your asses you fools. You causing traffic violations and purposefully becoming hazards to other people is not the way to negotiate peace. It’s the way to get more police on your asses, and another reason for officials to distrust you. Think for once, would you?

everyone is are angry about the trigger warning on the new episode of game grumps 

like??? when do people realize that triggers and trigger warnings didn’t start from tumblr and are used in therapy like god damn if you go to a fucking psych ward most of what they talk about is identifying your triggers and how to help you calm down when you are triggered. 

Therapy is also a place where you go to learn how to overcome your “triggers”. Otherwise what would be the point of going to therapy? People with real triggers are smart enough to be able to identify what starts them on an episode, how long an episode usually lasts, and on some occasions have found certain ways to calm themselves down on their own. One of the reasons they go to therapy in the first place is because they’ve had enough of their triggers and the mood they put them in, and they want to get better. They don’t go to therapy to be told shit they already know or be talked down to, they go because the therapist is a person who will help them overcome their affliction(s). Why the fuck else would you pay an arm and a leg to see a therapist? Well, unless you just go for the drugs, then you’re not really helping yourself to improve much are you?

lmao most people who watch a video usually don’t expect triggering content. Yeah, overcoming the trigger is typically a goal, but that’s not something that happens immediately. It’s a gradual process and you’ll still need a warning ahead of time. The warning is put up in advance so people will know ahead of time. I have no idea why the fuck people are saying trigger warnings are unnecessary under the guise that being bombarded by sensitive content without any warning is somehow more psychologically effective. I’m sure you have ten PHDs and know exactly what the fuck you’re talking about and aren’t bullshitting your credentials just because you think people are being oversensitive.

Look, fucking drop the whole therapy angle. Shut the fuck up about how you clearly know what’s better and how YOU know how to help people improve because you CLEARLY know everything about psychotherapy. Just cut out the middleman and admit that you think making videos more accessible is pandering to SJWs, because at least it’d be way more honest.

Actually, I DO know quite a lot about psychotherapy. I’ve studied psychology for quite a few years in college and have even saved a man’s life because I helped him to identify what was ailing him and find ways to help him improve his life. And did I say ANYWHERE in my post that therapy is supposed to cure a person of what ails them after one visit? If you think I did then you need to get your vision checked hon.


I KNOW what I’m talking abut when it comes to the effectiveness of therapy when others make the conscious effort to improve themselves and face their fears. If you just spend the rest of your miserable little life feeling sorry for yourself, you’re not of much worth to those who gave and continue to give a fuck about you now are you? Also, if you just choose to waste time in therapy by not answering questions or not even fucking trying to get better, you’re not only wasting the therapist’s time (which they could have used to help someone who actually wants to get better), you’re also wasting you or your parent’s/family’s/spouse’s money. I suffer from depression too, I wanted to kill myself while I was in college and a bit in high school like a lot of other people are. But you know what I didn’t do? Continuously pity myself and continue to wallow in my own self pity. I didn’t want to let down those who had so much faith in me that I’d make it as someone in this world. And in order to keep my promise to them, I decided to do something about my condition. Sure, it took about 3 months to get me to at least a stable frame of mind, but after the three-per-week, hour long sessions as well as my therapist checking up on me from time to time, my therapist helped me to rediscover what was worth living for and that I should never give up no matter how hard things may get. Of course I have relapses every so often, but I don’t allow that part of my life to consume me because the payoff is so much better than simply ending your life because of a very solvable problem.

Also, I didn’t say SHIT about trigger warnings in my post. You’re so wrapped up in what OTHER people have said about this topic, that you seem to just completely discredit anyone else who says something that isn’t just taking your peoples’ sides. While those who are getting upset about this are being quite unfair about the whole thing, you can’t deny that people are taking this “censorship to protect the sensitive” to the extreme, and quite frankly, a lot of people are getting really sick of seeing it. Yes, therapy takes time, and yes everyone has their own pace for which to heal. That’s a no fucking brainer even if you hadn’t taken a single psychology class. But forcing others to censor themselves because they may say something offensive isn’t a solution, it’s a diversion, and one that isn’t going to make you a lot of friends. All I was saying is that therapy is a means to expedite the healing process, not have what’s wrong with you shoved down your throat and only be shown band-aid healing methods that you could have figured out yourself, or just to have pills thrown at you.

So in other words, yes, person on the fucking Internet, I do know what the fuck I’m talking about both from experience and an educational stand-point. And honestly, I feel a whole lot better than when I did back when I was refusing to see anyone about this problem. Instead of using trigger warnings as a censor, why don’t we use them instead as a guide? In other words, here’s a topic you might not like, depending on where you are in your healing, either click away now until you are ready to face your fears or proceed with caution. Only YOU have the power to overcome this issue. Others can help and support you, but it’s YOU and YOU ALONE that must make a conscious effort to at least try.

And THAT’S all I’m going to say about that!
