what do men want? it’s sausage. so much sausage. tons of sausage. They want their chapped. Burly lips wrapped around a length of greasy sausage as it runs over their tongues, probes, and then gently slides down the back of their throats

In 31 states, rapists are allowed to sue victims they’ve impregnated for custody rights.
There’s a case in Boston, MA right now in which a rapist is taking advantage of this. He pleaded guilty of rape in 2011 and was sentenced to 16 years probation; however, this sentence includes 16 years of family court as well, which the victim must also attend. He’s using this to sue for joint custody of her child and will only withdraw his law suit if he is free from paying any form of child support. This entire sentence seems like much more of a punishment for the victim than it is for the rapist, and for the state to allow such a thing, the victim is suing.
As stated in the court complaint, “Even if the family court ruled in the [victim]’s favor on issues currently in dispute, such as whether the criminal defendant should be granted visitation rights to [her] child, [she] will suffer harm from the constant threat of new issues arising in family court until her child reaches adulthood, including, for example, efforts by the criminal defendant to seek to modify child support orders and enforce his parental rights at the trial court level and on appeal.”
If this woman is forced to attend 16 years of family court with her rapist, she is not only forced to confront a traumatic event that she should never have to deal with again, but she is subjected to the possibility of losing pieces of her child to him over and over again for all of those years. In addition to this constant state of fear and anguish she would face, just by being sent to something considered ‘family’ court—for her and her rapist—she’s being disrespected and her rape undermined by even the suggestion that this is a family situation. By doing this, the law is making felony into family.
In 31 states, rapists are actually given rights instead of having much of anything taken away. In being given these rights, they are being given the chance to further torment the woman and possibly abuse the child. It is not okay to reward rapists and further punish victims, and the ignorance of rape and how our justice system is handling it needs to turn around.
Please sign this petition to ban rapists from being able to sue for custody rights. This issue is so little known, yet so important, and I don’t know any better way of trying to make this change.
HOW ARE THERE LESS THAN A HUNDRED SIGNATURES!?!!
There are only 600 signatures. Even if this doesn’t affect anything, at least we can prove that there are people in this world that understand that this is wrong, that regular people know this is unacceptable. Maybe if we show there’s enough of us it’ll mean something to someone, if only cause they want our vote.
yeah locking this down federally would be a really good thing.
DID I JUST FUCKING READ THAT. WHAT IN THE FUCK. What do you think white people sound like when they’re just talking with their friends and/or don’t have access to good education? And what the fuck are you even defining as civilization? ‘Cause I’m pretty sure the Egyptians had a pretty epic civilization going on while most of the people in Europe were still banging rocks together.
it’s a vernacular evolved from the mix of different european languages, african tribal influences and regional references.
get kidnapped and dropped off into a strange land where even the people who are barking orders at you don’t understand the true native language, learn the orders being barked at you, then find ways to communicate with others who may not be from the same place that you originated, as well as your “owners” and tell me what you sound like.
What’s also infuriating is the fact that literally every dialect of a language sounds different than its origin, and therefore, every dialect as a “stereotypical” way they talk. That, my friend, is called an “accent.” You might have heard of it.
I’m not agreeing with the racism, but a bastardization called ebonics is not an accent. It’s a destruction of the english language, and therein of knowledge. The more deep seated into ignorant language you find someone, you’re also likely to find they aren’t very intelligent or well mannered. Than you see their parents, who are not much better perpetuating further ignorance through generations. Run down inner cities are ruining our kids futures by being okay with this destruction of intelligence. I see this first hand in Detroit every day.
The only reason you consider it destruction of language instead of growth and change is because of racism. If something is done by a black person in this white-supremacist nation it is deemed inherently ignorant. When a white person does the same thing it is considered innovative.
There are parts of speach within African American vernacular that don’t exist in American English. Does that make American English inferior?
Claiming you don’t agree with racism or aren’t racist doesn’t cancel out your racist thinking. It’s drilled into your head every day so it’s pretty much impossible for you to critize black Americans without repeating racist tropes.
Here are 10 photos (out of 22) from my series Racial Microaggressions. I have asked my friends on the Fordham University Lincoln Center campus to write down an instance of racial microaggression they have faced on a poster for me to take a picture of them.
