To the glory of hell and the virtue of sin

When you’re at the pool lounging on a beach chair and some little kids are running and the lifeguard screams out “no running” do you respond “excuse, not all of us are running”? No, you don’t. The lifeguard didn’t have to specifically state who they were talking to because you’re intelligent enough to comprehend that the comment wasn’t being directed at you.

Found a quote that shuts down that “not all men” argument pretty well. (via mykicks)

In San Francisco last year, a man stabbed a woman in the face and arm after she didn’t respond positively to his sexually harassing her on the street.

In Bradenton, Fla., a man shot a high school senior to death after she and her friends refused to perform oral sex at his request.

In Chicago, a scared 15-year-old was hit by a car and died after she tried escaping from harassers on a bus.

Again, in Chicago, a man grabbed a 19-year-old walking on a public thoroughfare, pulled her onto a gangway and assaulted her.

In Savannah, Georgia, a woman was walking alone at night and three men approached her. She ignored them, but they pushed her to the ground and sexually assaulted her.

In Manhattan, a 29-year-old pregnant woman was killed when men catcalling from a van drove onto the sidewalk and hit her and her friend.

Last week, a runner in California — a woman — was stopped and asked, by a strange man in a car, if she wanted a ride. When she declined he ran her over twice.

FUCK YOU if you think that street harassment is a “compliment” or “no big deal” or that it’s “irrational” of us to be afraid because “what’s actually gonna happen.” Fuck you, fuck you, fuck you some more.

People rarely use hard ‘no’s in everyday life.
We say ‘oh something came up’ or ‘maybe another time’ and no one ever thinks those things mean yes.

But all of a sudden where sex is concerned you get all these fucking rapists going ‘oh well she didn’t technically say no so I didn’t know’.

Bullshit.

You knew what you did.

"real men dont rape" actually, real men do rape. they do. men rape. it isn’t done by ~fake mythical special brand of evil~ men, it’s done by real men, men who may seem nice, men who you think you can trust, men you know, men who you’re close to. real men do rape. that’s the problem

Robin Williams

It is not my place to say I miss a man I never met, especially when his family and friends are suffering. However, I will say that the world truly feels darker without this legend to brighten it up.

I tend to keep my opinions to myself on this website, but this is something that I can’t stay silent about anymore.

Please be aware of the symptoms of depression and warning signs of suicidal ideation in both yourself and others. We cannot let the stigma surrounding seeking help for mental illness continue to prevent people from saving both their own lives and the lives of others. Mental illness, like any other illness, needs treatment. Depression, when severe and left untreated, is a life-threatening condition, and there should be no shame in seeking treatment for a medical condition of any kind. Period.

If you or a loved one is suffering, do not be afraid to get treatment, whether that treatment is medication or talk therapy or support groups or whatever combination is right and works best for you. Do not feel that you’re not depressed “enough” to talk to someone. Ignoring depression at the onset, as with any other illness, only allows it to get worse, to the point where it can become a literal medical emergency. Everyone deserves to live a life that is not defined by their illness. Your life is more valuable than anyone’s opinion. Period.

Education and awareness about these issues SAVES LIVES. We cannot allow this invisible disease continue to steal people away from us.

Rest in peace, Mr. Williams. This world is not and will never be the same without you.
