My name is Kristen and I'm just your average sweet southern belle, but I ain't afraid to get buckwild ;) I live in South Carolina, but was born and raised in California. I'm in love with a country boy named Luke <3 04.21.12 Things I love to do: read, fish, go out on dates, make graphics for Chaotic Country Graphics, hang out with friends, play video games, reblog stuff, swim, shop, watch t.v. My favorite T.V. shows: Supernatural, Walking Dead, The Real World, Dexter, Criminal Minds, Girl Code, The Regular Show, Adventure Time, South Park.
I’ve made another attempt!! she deleted the post I commented on. I hope this works. I hope I don’t have to harass her.
so i just watched the #thinman episode of supernatural and it took me twice as long to watch it cause it terrified me. thinman is their interpretation of slenderman and he scares the shit out of me. nothing else scares me more than slenderman.
When young women are sexually assaulted, we question their pasts and critique their clothing choices, yet rarely ask their attackers to simply be accountable for having no self-control, and no respect for the humanity of the girls they’ve violated.
When middle school girls post half–naked photos of themselves on Instagram, we vilify and ostracize them as cheap and easy, while ignoring the dozens of young men who mindlessly vote their approval each time, who feed the insecurity, and who perpetuate each degrading act with the click of a mouse.
When high school girls get jobs at chain restaurants, which require them to expose their body parts to strangers over trays of nachos, we bemoan their lack of humility and class, yet never question the thousands of men who fill these eateries every day; many with daughters the same age as the ones they ogle.
When women embarrassingly writhe on poles for a few sweaty dollar bills, in dimly lit bars ironically called “Gentlemen’s Clubs”, we heap insults and judgement on them, yet let the many married men who pay both the dancers and the mortgage each month, come and go without blemish or critique.
Sooner or later, we need to stop letting boys be boys, and we need to challenge them to be men.
Sooner or later, we need to pull them out of their perpetual adolescence and into adulthood, and ask them to evenly carry the weight of sexual standards.
Sooner or later, we need to show our young men that the they can actually raise the moral temperature in sexual situations, not reflect them.
