OH MY GODLmfao
the thing to realize here is that conservatives find the idea of paying workers a livable wage so absurd that they make hyperbolic comparisons like this
because fifteen dollars an hour and a hundred thousand dollars an hour both mean the same thing to them; more than you deserve

The more we depend on women to prevent rape, the easier it is to blame them when it happens to them. Here’s a look at the well-documented ways we can actually stop rape. Maybe it’s time we invest a little more time and resources into implementing them before we send gallons of nail polish to colleges across the country.
I’ve known too many women to be raped, had nurses and liaison officers tell them that they had enough evidence, and then the police do fuck all to the rapist and let him walk free and continue his life as normal while the victim has to struggle every day to cope with the shit they put them through.
This has happened to too many women I love. Way too fucking many.
One person I know who was raped, the police even found CCTV footage of the actual incident, but apparently that wasn’t enough to convict him either.
Think about that.
When I was raped at work (I am a dancer), my manager called the police immediately, and the first thing they said to me was “have you been drinking?” Even though I was in tears and completely hysterical because I “smelled like alcohol.” At the hospital I underwent a rape kit which involved having photos taken of me, all the parts of my body where I was assaulted swabbed and probed, and then I was give a shot of antibiotics to prevent stds in my upper leg that left me unable to walk for a few hours. It was invasive and awful and the nurse clearly mentioned abrasions to my vagina and fluids were present in the places I said they were. When I went to talk to my detective a couple days later, he told me to not even bother pressing charges because my rapist is a doctor and I’m just a stripper, and my job and the things I “allowed” beforehand (I was raped in a private VIP room) would skew people’s judgement of me. But that I seemed like a nice girl who needed to stop putting herself in that position to be attacked and hey, if it made me feel better, he believed me, and he can tell 99% of the time when these girls come in here lying to hurt a man, but I was real broke up, “so that’s good.” So whenever someone asks why some survivors don’t press charges well, here you go. I tried.
Also it’s been almost two years and I have never been notified of any rape kit results, supposedly it would take “just” 9 months.

I love the rain. I love how it softens the outlines of things. The world becomes softly blurred, and I feel like I melt right into it.
