‘Rape Culture’ SHOULD make you uncomfortable

feminspire:

Patriarchy tank top

Throughout their lives, most women have been told some such advice (including advice such as “don’t walk home at night;” to the defensive “carry hairspray to use as a weapon,” to the ridiculous “don’t wear your hair in a ponytail,” and the disgusting “vomit/urinate/defecate on your rapist.”)

(And let’s not forget that many of them had to fight long past 1920, simply because of their skin color. Only WHITE women were guaranteed the right to vote in the 19th Amendment. WoC continued to fight for years.)

And voter suppression continues to be pushed in such a way that effects mainly the poor, the elderly, the underexucated, women and people of color. We are STILL fighting for voting rights. It’s not over.)
