"Some good advice I found in a bathroom." -raym0ndv2
Today, I read an article about a woman with HIV who was raped. The man that attacked her is now HIV positive. All of the commentary surround this was about how she should have told him she was HIV+ and that women with HIV should have a badge or special underwear so that this doesn’t happen to another man. It is 12:12am and I am already done with the world.
That is rape culture
THIS POST WINS FOR THE MOST HORRIFYING THING I’VE READ ALL DAY
if you had a friend who spoke to you in the same way you sometimes speak to yourself, how long would you allow that person to be your friend?
The sad thing is, it’s probably longer than you think because they will just be reinforcing your own belief structure.
Not the weather or anything, it’s just that Lex works so much and I end up seeing him rarely. I spend every weekend on my own and then go back to work on Tuesday and I have to reacclimatise to being around tons of people. I feel out of my comfort zone on both levels. I don’t like to be surrounded by people but I don’t want to be completely alone either. I go from being 100% alone for three days, not saying a word. To 10 hour days surrounded by people. It really messes with my head.
