NOOOO NO NO NONO FUCK FUCK  FUCKIG CBS IS TELLING WOMEN NOT TO REPORT SEXUAL HARASSMENT BECAUSE IT WILL “DAMAGE THEIR CAREERS” and “HARASSMENT IS AN UNFORTUNATE PART OF CLIMBING THE LADDER” I AM SO ANGRY THEY ARE LITERALLY TURNING SEXUAL HARASSMENT INTO A NORM THIS IS NOT OKAY

This is an actual article and I’m still having a hard time believing it’s real.

IF YOU ARE SEXUALLY HARRASSED YOU REPORT THAT SHIT

That is AWFUL. Please report it when you’re sexually harassed. If not for yourself, to try to protect future victims.

FUCK THIS SHIT.

Look, I can understand circumstances where, yeah, reporting it is difficult and you would choose not to.  There are times when you literally HAVE NO OTHER CHOICE and it sucks, and those assholes are taking advantage of it.  Not every woman can put her source of income at risk like that, and the one thing the article gets right is that the laws DON’T always work, you are NOT guaranteed protection.

Which is why we need to keep fighting for better laws and better enforcement of policies.  Which is why when you CAN report it, you SHOULD and FIGHT against this mindset that it’s just something women have to deal with if we want to sit at the boys table.  Harassment is NOT just an inconvenience, it is dehumanizing, it is upsetting, it is a weapon used against women and it is BEYOND NOT OKAY. 

And of course: why the fuck are you acting like women should have to control whether they report it or not instead of the very basic fact that MEN SHOULD NOT BE DOING THIS?!?!

FUUUUUUUUUCK EVERYTHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIING.

You said all the things I meant to say but didn’t while blinded with rage and flailing at the keyboard. :)

I’m sorry, “Shit sucks and the laws don’t really work, so stay quiet and suck it up” is a HORRIBLE FUCKING ARGUMENT. If the laws don’t really work YOU FUCKING MAKE SOME NOISE AND MAKE PEOPLE CHANGE THEM. 

And I’m going to agree with NewAgeAmazon: there needs to be a lot more “Dudes, don’t do this shit” out there. LOTS more.

OH. FUCK. NO. CBS. Unacceptable.

"Shit sucks and laws don’t really work, so stay quiet and suck it up" WAS NOT really the argument being made in there. We’re doing the bad Tumblr thing of making general statements about how the world SHOULD work and then applying them to every individual in every situation.

It ABSOLUTELY SHOULD be the case that all women report cases of sexual harassment and see it dealt with. HOWEVER, in an individual woman’s case in which she might chose not to report it, that does NOT make her weak/complicit in the patriarchy/problematic. Maybe it means that she, for the reasons listed about or any others, values something she gets out of not reporting it (like, you know, job security) more than reporting it.

It SUCKS that these choices have to be made. It should not be the case at all. Women should be able to report when they are harassed, when they are assaulted, when they are disrespected, and they should be safe in doing so.

But condemning someone who has to make the hard choice between fighting a damaging and fucked-up social norm and fighting to put food on the table is condemning the wrong person.

Map of the World by Natural Skin Color

i’m really dumbfounded that i never realized skin colour is literally just caused by being closer to or farther from the equator and the resulting sun exposure and skin darkening

actually, its an adaptation. natural selection. people with darker skin are selected for in areas near the equator, where the melanin that causes the darker color protects them from radiation and protects them from skin cancer and other health defects, and because they are healthier they can pass on that trait more. people near the poles have lighter skin because it allows them absorb more of the limited sunlight to convert to vitamin d. 

THIS IS THE THING SOME PEOPLE HATE OTHER PEOPLE OVER.Evolution of melanin levels based on geographical location.

  • my sister: oh my god
  • me: what?
  • my sister: i just realized something
  • me: ?
  • my sister: gaston is a nice guy.
  • me: ...? um, no, sorry, he's an asshole.
  • my sister: no, no, no, gaston is a 'nice guy'. think about it. he spends the whole beginning of the movie trying to be friendly to belle. everyone else in that town thinks she's a bookish freak with a crazy man for a father, but gaston like, talks to her and sort of tries to take an interest in her activities and compliments her and stuff with the complete 100% expectation that she's going to pay him back by being in a relationship with him. he tunes out what she actually says because he doesn't really think of her as a person, just a pretty trophy who should react to him the right way if he does the right things.
  • me: huh
  • my sister: and then when she hooks up with someone else, he gets all angry and shouty and insists that this other guy is a monster and she's lost her damn mind because she was supposed to fall for HIM, not someone else, and then he goes and stirs up the townsfolk into an angry mob and turns the whole thing into a witch hunt over his wounded pride.
  • me: O_O
  • my sister: gaston is a nice guy.
