    What else is out there, tumblr? I want to see it, I want to share it.

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (1998) - dir. Terry Gilliam

“And suddenly there was a terrible roar all around us and the sky was full of what looked like huge Mynocks, all swooping and screeching and diving around the car, which was going about a hundred miles an hour with the top down to Las Vegas.”

    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.

    ami-angelwings:

    This is an essay called “The Lie of Entitlement” by Terrance Crowley, scanned from "Transforming a Rape Culture".

    I thought it was very fitting to put up because of a lot of discussions that go on on tumblr from privileged groups complaining that they get criticized for speaking for marginalized groups, or being told to step aside and not take a leadership role.  The essay talks about how the author had to unpack his own prejudices and need for control before he could help out, and understand that his intentions don’t prevent his actions from causing harm.  I specifically wanted to note pages 2 and 3 and this passage:

    "I wanted to be one of the good guys.  I wanted to say what battering is about and who does it.  I wanted to say what working on sexism looks like.  I wanted to say what racism is and what to do about it.  I wanted to be the one to say when homeless people, gays, people of color, and most especially women go too far in their self-expression.  I wanted to define fair and just.  I wanted to say what is appropriate and when.  I wanted to say what is sexual and sexy.  I wanted to say what no means.  I wanted to say what is provocative or erotic for women.  I wanted to say whether this sense of entitlement propagates and condones a rape culture.  Last, if questioned, I wanted to deny this need for control."

    I think a lot of “allies” that get called out, or who complain that they feel restricted in what they can say to who, should read this and think about how they act and why it’s so important to them that they get to define what causes harm to the marginalized group.  Part of privilege is that you get situated as being the default and “objective” viewer, and that marginalized people are situated as being too close to the situation, irrational, too extreme, etc and needing your guidance and leadership.  If you enact that relationship, or attempt to, you’re only contributing to the problem that you are trying to be an ally in tackling.

    Exactly. Are you listening, fellow privileged white men? We need to stop trying to control the conversation, and just listen for a while. Probably a long while.
