Do you still need more proof of rape culture?

As Noam Chomsky once pointed out for Z Magazine, old media types from the institutional bodies like American Enterprise Institute tend to regurgitate the same ideas with a reliability that is equally impressive and infuriating. While assuring the public that rape is a terrible crime, writers like Caroline Kitchens and Heather McDonald of right-wing think tank The Manhattan Institute try to claim that feminists have blown this whole rape culture thing way out of proportion.

Apparently, many women disagree. On Tuesday there were more than 1 million responses on the #RapeCultureIsWhen hashtag started by a frustrated Zerlina Maxwell in response to these right-wing narratives.

Convo I just had with my dad

  • Dad:

    hey I'm gonna go grocery shopping do you need anything?

  • Me:

    uuuhhh....

  • Me:

    contemplates wether or not I should ask him to get me pads since I need them desperately

  • Dad:

    anything at all?

  • Me:

    uh... Yeah.... Can you get me some pads

  • Dad:

    Sure

  • Me:

    Are you serious? Wouldn't you be embarrassed?

  • Dad:

    Natalie, I'm a 56 year old man who has been buying pads for your mother for over 20 years. No I'm not embarrassed.

  • Me:

    But I thought guys get squirmish when we ask them to buy this stuff for us

  • Dad:

    boys are squirmish. Men will step out and buy you as many pads and tampons as you need. A man will understand that you cannot control your cycle and that this is a natural bodily process. So, if you ever find a guy who's too embarrassed to buy you pad just bleed on everything he owns.

  • Me:

    OMG DAD

Hello all, so this is my dad, and he’s planning on cosplaying as Rescue Captain America at San Diego Comic-Con this year.
Here’s the problem: He’s 53 and he thinks he might be too old to cosplay. In addition, he thinks he’s not buff/handsome enough to pull it off a Captain America costume. So even though he’s put a ton of work into his cosplay, he’s thinking about not taking any of it with us.
I’ve set out to prove him wrong, so tumblr, please help me show this retired Air Force officer that he makes a great Captain America!
