Can everyone on Tumblr take a day off from discussing rape? Maybe we can make it a holiday?
You’re preaching to those who already adamantly oppose rape. Most of the world also knows and fully believes that rape is wrong because it is. There are damaged individuals out there that either condone it, do it, or don’t care to combat it and you’ll never get through to them with your blog posts.
If you want to make a difference, don’t write 4 paragraphs on your shitty blog - become a politician or a lawyer or not a sloppy piece of shit sitting behind a keyboard complaining. Do something about it.
See, this is what always bugs me about people who complain about the state of things and do nothing about it.
"Ugh, there are no black characters on Girls."
"Ugh, patriarchy in video games."
Well you know what, become a television writer or a video game designer and make your own fucking product with your own fucking characters.
"Ugh, but it’s tooooo hard!!"
Tough shit, that’s the mindset of a loser. It was hard for them, too. It’s hard for everyone. Thinking like that is going to get you nowhere. Be ambitious. It’s not their responsibility to cater to your needs and if they do, ultimately it’s for the sake of gaining profit and not because it’s ‘the right thing to do.’
In the case of government, media, and social opinions - be active. Rupert Murdoch isn’t going to stumble upon your blog one day and suddenly decide to make Fox News any less skewed. Take action.
