Vox has a depressing list outlining the reality of violence that women face in the United States every day:

1. Most women experience physical abuse in their lifetime

2. Nearly one-quarter of women experience a physical or sexual assault by an intimate partner

3. Seven in ten assaults against women are perpetrated by an intimate partner

4. One in five women are raped in their lifetime

5. One in thirteen murder victims are killed by their husband or boyfriend

6. One in ten women has a head or spinal cord injury as a result of physical assault

7. But most assault victims don’t receive medical care

8. Eighteen percent of mass shooters have a domestic violence charge

9. Rates of sexual assault are declining

Why are straight white men’s rights activists are so insistent that women don’t need feminism? Why are online reactionaries so upset with “social justice warriors” for pointing these issues out?

Is the above reality the one they expect women to be satisfied with?

I suppose that’s why “the abuser’s lobby” is such an apt name for the men’s rights movement.

One in five though

Protesters from across St Louis turned up and turned out for the first St Louis County Council Meeting since Mike Brown’s Death. (Part I)

The St Louis County Council wasn’t as bad as Ferguson’s Council, but still very few answers and virtually no accountability from the folks who unleashed unholy hell on the residents of Ferguson, following Brown’s murder. #staywoke #farfromover

BEING A WRITER IS A GIFT AND A CURSE

BECAUSE YOU HAVE ALL THESE IDEAS AND NO MOTIVATION OR ALL THIS MOTIVATION AND NO IDEAS

NO BUT WHEN YOU DO HAVE THE MOTIVATION AND IDEAS BUT YOU CAN’T DO THE THING WHERE IT SOUNDS NICE ON PAPER

AND THEN YOU GET THE MOTIVATION AND THE IDEAS BUT YOU DONT HAVE A COMPUTER OR PAPER

What kind of life y’all living where no motivation is an option

So check out what’s happening in Fredericksburg, Texas… This is pretty scary. Fredericksburg and Central Texas in general has very rich cultural history and apparently certain groups would like to remove/misrepresent that history.

So out there I had to look it up…

It is the top post and WOW that’s messed up. There are some picture from previous ones.
