I asked all of the gay male students in the room to raise their hand if in the past week they touched a woman’s body without her consent. After a moment of hesitation, all of the hands of the gay men in the room went up. I then asked the same gay men to raise their hand if in the past week they offered a woman unsolicited advice about how to “improve” her body or her fashion. Once again, after a moment of hesitation, all of the hands in the room went up.
These questions came after a brief exploration of gay men’s relationship to American fashion and women’s bodies. That dialogue included recognizing that gay men in the United States are often hailed as the experts of women’s fashion and by proxy women’s bodies. In addition to this there is a dominant logic that suggests that because gay men have no conscious desire to be sexually intimate with women, our uninvited touching and groping (physical assault) is benign. —

I DO NOT want to hear from a single gay man that he is immune to misogyny and male privilege. NOT ONCE.
if i was a therapist i would have soulja boy as an assistant and every time my patient asked a question that was too emotional like ‘why did my dad leave me’ i would just turn and be like ‘soulja boy tell em’
Then he’d look at them and scream “YOOOUUUUU” and they’d cry

If owning a gun and knowing how to use it worked, the military would be the safest place for a woman. It’s not.
If women covering up their bodies worked, Afghanistan would have a lower rate of sexual assault than Polynesia. It doesn’t.
If not drinking alcohol worked, children would not be raped. They are.
If your advice to a woman to avoid rape is to be the most modestly dressed, soberest and first to go home, you may as well add “so the rapist will choose someone else”.
If your response to hearing a woman has been raped is “she didn’t have to go to that bar/nightclub/party” you are saying that you want bars, nightclubs and parties to have no women in them. Unless you want the women to show up, but wear kaftans and drink orange juice. Good luck selling either of those options to your friends.
Or you could just be honest and say that you don’t want less rape, you want (even) less prosecution of rapists. —

What people are ashamed of usually makes a good story. — F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Love of the Last Tycoon (via leslieseuffert)
Clara’s realizations about the Doctor: ‘He’s scary, He’s not a good guy, I’m most scared of him.’
The logical direction from here is admitting the Doctor is an antihero-type thing at the moment and that Clara is the more natural protagonist, as she’s more relatable and also ISN’T AN ABUSIVE FUCK.
It’s not hidden - it’s part of his basic characterization, this Doctor (Clara’s doctor): 1) is straightforwardly chauvinistic, 2) erases Clara’s memory so she won’t remember she feels unsafe with him, 3) objectifies Clara physically and mentally - by grabbing her face when she’s scared, by saying ‘beautiful fragile humans’ when he sees her bleeding hand, and most disturbingly; 4) really truly believes she’s lying to him about who she is.
So in conclusion, I thought this episode was really interesting, but because it probably won’t be taken in the right direction (right direction = Buffy’s season 6 Willow/Tara plot), it’s just a show about a bad guy who drags around a girl and barely gets punished for it.
