if anyone ever asks me what tumblr is i’m gonna show them this video and just walk away
By the way, this is the type of garbage I get in my FB inbox from people I don’t know and am not friends with. Have at him, Tumblr.
Austin Smith Clem, 25, was found guilty of raping a teenage girl three times in Alabama, but he won’t be sent to jail for his crimes.

Earlier today, George Watsky did a dumb thing (stage diving off a very high rigging) at the Warped Tour and injured some people including himself. When I first heard about it I pretty much couldn’t breathe because no one knew if he was OK and not only is he a great friend of mine, but he’s like a genuine national treasure.

Have you ever opened a GQ or an Esquire?” Dunn points out. If I go to Esquire’s site, I immediately see the following stories: ‘International Sexy Women’, ‘Everything You Need to Know About Stephen King Movies’, and ‘Wear This Sport Coat, Drink This Scotch’.
“But for some reason men’s interests, like sports, or whatever, are seen as these noble, very serious topics…whereas ‘women’s interests’, that are makeup or boy bands, or whatever, are seen as stupid,” says Dunn. “Why? They’re the same level of stupid…how is (that) any more shallow than the obsession with the Super Bowl?”
Throughout the now nearly five year history of this blog, I’ve written extensively about the dynamics of rape, who the rapists are, how they operate and what has to happen in the culture to make th…
