TW Rape
A collection of just SOME of the hateful comments left on a video report of the #jadapose rape case. For any one who thinks rape apology, victim blaming and rapid victim mistrust aren’t still thriving within our society. I should mention there were also A tonne of people speaking up for and defending Jada, however, there shouldn’t be a need to defend a victim from rape apologists, because that mentality should NOT exist. 

Potential/ actual but never caught rapist alert

this is rape culture, and it has got to stop.  stay strong jada.

This is so incredibly disgusting. My heart breaks for this girl. 

I am ashamed.
Black girls must be protected at all cost. By any means necessary.

So people were distributing child porn and nobody is in jail right now?

Protect this girl. And get the perpetrators thrown under the jail.

This situation is so fucked.

And people still think there isn’t a war on women…

For Catholics who spend their Saturdays standing outside abortion clinics, holding graphic or condescending signs and “fetus” rosaries, chanting the Our Father and singing hymns, I want you to think long and hard about how you choose to spend your Saturdays. I want you to think about if this is what the Lord truly called you to do. Because when I stand outside abortion clinics, as I did yesterday in Boston, I do not see the Lord in those saying the rosary while holding hand-drawn signs of “aborted fetuses.” I see zealous, prideful people with little humility and grace. I see selfish, sheltered people more concerned with their personal satisfaction than the feelings and rights and lives of others. I do not see Jesus, even as you go through the Our Father’s and Hail Mary’s and Glory Be’s.

This is not about getting your point across. I think you have already made your point loud and clear. The Catholic Church believes “life begins at conception” and you honor that. Still, you believe that the longer you wait outside abortion clinics each Saturday, the more women you will “save.” 

But you will not save them. These women (and trans men and those who don’t identify as women) do not need your saving. They need to access a clinic safely. They need to know they will be OK with whatever choice they choose. They do not need fear. They do not need stress. They do not need condemnation from people doing God’s misguided work.

For Catholics who spend their Saturdays outside abortion clinics, I want you to think long and hard whether your services would be better elsewhere. Why not go to a homeless shelter or domestic violence shelter instead? Why not donate baby clothes and diapers and food to new mothers who can’t afford motherhood? Why not spread God’s name through peaceful and dutiful work? 

And if you would like to say the rosary for the unborn, why not say it in a church? Light a candle and ask Mother Mary to give women considering abortion strength. But don’t forget — there are many women who pray to Mary to give them strength for their abortions. And the Blessed Mother does. 

For Catholics who spend their Saturdays outside abortion clinics, I have a hard time believing Jesus is standing with you. If Jesus were here on Earth in his earthly form today, there’s a much greater chance that he would be wearing a clinic escort vest, helping women inside and protecting them from those throwing stones.

The highest aim of a woman is her ability to have a baby

Anti “counseling” a client as we walked to the clinic yesterday.

TRIGGER WARNING …

So, by now you have all heard of 22 year old Elliot Rodger who went on a killing spree in Isla Vista, a community in Santa Barbara, California. One Friday night, Elliot shot and killed 7 people, including himself, close to the University of California Santa Barbara campus.

Prior to his violent shooting rampage, Elliot recorded a video titled, Day of Retribution in which he states, “college is the time when everyone experiences those things such as sex and fun and pleasure. In those years I’ve had to rot in in loneliness, it’s not fair.” and “you girls have never been attracted to me, I don’t know why you girls aren’t attracted to me, but I will punish you all for it”.

About a month ago, after seeing some of Elliot’s YouTube videos, his family contacted authorities. Law Enforcement interviewed Elliot and said they found him to be a ‘perfectly polite, kind and wonderful human’ and took no further action.

Now we have media outlets labeling Elliot as a “mad man”, “spoiled brat”, “misunderstood”, “good human” etc and continuing to file this mass murder under mental health.

Understand that no one is saying that he did not suffer from mental illness, I’m sure he does. But we CANNOT ignore the fact that this mass killing was rooted in his hate of women (misogyny) and inability to properly deal with rejection. There is much to unpack about this incident, how it was handled and how it will be portrayed in the media, but for now I’ll post some tweets from those of us responding to the shooting on twitter.

not everyone who is mentally ill kills women, and not everyone who kills women is mentally ill. the illness is not the common denominator here. hatred of women, viewing women as subhuman, feeling entitled to controlling and getting attention from women: these are the common denominators. mass murdering women is not a mental illness problem. it’s a hating women problem.
