passing by a repub sign “Obama supports gay marriage and abortion. do you”
“i’m against both”
my 12 year old brother
· 51% of the boys and 41% of the girls said forced sex was acceptable if the boy, “spent a lot of money” on the girl;
· 31% of the boys and 32% of the girls said it was acceptable for a man to rape a woman with past sexual experience;
· 87% of boys and 79% of girls said sexual assault was acceptable if the man and the woman were married;
· 65% of the boys and 47% of the girls said it was acceptable for a boy to rape a girl if they had been dating for more than six months."
This is fucking scary, and it shows that we do live in a “rape culture” in which abusers and rapists have little idea that they are doing something wrong. My abuser didn’t….
In which we despair for the universe…
There are so many of these horrible survey results, and everyone should know them and then tell me there’s no such thing as misogyny and rape culture.
Romney’s official stance on today’s immigration ruling. It’s the vaguest vague that ever vagued. As usual, it’s like Mad Libs with conservatives buzzwords. “Immigration policy… more latitude to the states…” What the fuck does that even mean, Mittens.
It bears mentioning that Romney first tried to not say whether he agreed or disagreed at all - the consummate pre-flip-flopper. His initial statement just kept repeating how Obama’s immigration policy had failed. As usual, he offers no solutions.
Anonymous asked: stop being so ignorant. YES the people DID spend a year risking their lives not for morsi, but for a more islamically controlled country. morsi was the closest one to bringing that. get your facts straight
Well then, thanks for being the spokesperson for 80 million people.
As far as I’m concerned, this revolution aimed to take down a corrupt government that ruled for 30 years by use of violence, intimidation, and human rights abuses. I heard chants like freedom, liberty, equality, and those demands don’t need an Islamically controlled government. And that word “Islamically controlled” just SOUNDS wrong. The aim of Islam is not to control people. I’m Muslim and I think Islam is really great, and if you think that too, then you’d know that we don’t need to mandate it on other people for it to thrive. Egypt is beautiful because of all of the people that live in it, and all of those people deserve to have their say in their country and their government, and if you think otherwise, you’re the ignorant one.
And even at that, Muslim Brotherhood don’t even protect their OWN people. When the Tahrir Woman scandal happened (also known as Blue Bra Girl), and women went out to protest the abuse, Muslim Brotherhood condemned the women fighting for EQUALITY and JUSTICE and said they should go home and cook. And many of those women were Muslims.
Anonymous asked: tell me more about how morsi knows less about democracy than shafiq
Apologies, I should have been clearer. I don’t think Shafiq should have won either. I hate both of them. I’m just really frustrated by this whole run off election. They’re making us choose between the lesser of two evils. I love Egypt with all of my heart and I believe it has potential to be one of the greatest places in the world, but not by mandating a theocratic government. Egypt is beautiful because of all of its different people and beliefs and cultures, and we don’t celebrate that by mandating one religion on the entire country.
I’m Muslim and I live in the United States, and living here has made me realize how important it is to protect and represent everyone, regardles of their religious beliefs, gender, race, ethnicity, etc. That’s why so many people risk so much to come to the United States, every year, because (for the most part, i’m not naive) we separate religion and government even though the majority adheres to the Christian faith. Even though religion is very important to me personally, I don’t believe it’s my right, or anyone else’s right, to enforce a certain way of life on someone else.
i’m not really sure WHY people are cheering for MORSI. people did not spend a good year risking and losing their lives to elect a theocratic president with no fucking clue of what democracy really means.
