amanda. officially a 20 something on a journey, including but not limited to: working too much and still being broke, punk rock, hyperbole, embroidery, watching too many movies, and not getting enough sleep. I never wear a bra, I am body and sex positive, and I'm so bored with the U.S.A.
"I don’t wear makeup so I don’t have to waste like an hour in front of the mirror every morning hahahaha"
"open books not legs"
"why have tequila shots when you can have tea?"
"As always, late with Starbucks"
"modest is hottest"
"I’m not like those girls”
Here are some additional highlights from the survey’s findings:
Just 44 percent of institutions in the national sample provide the option to report sexual assaults online. Approximately 8 percent of institutions still do not allow confidential reporting, down from 16 percent identified in the 2002 NIJ report.
More than 30 percent of schools do not provide any sexual assault training for students. At institutions with fewer than 1,000 students, 53 percent provide no training at all.
"Most institutions also fail to provide access to a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE), a specially trained nurse who can provide medical and other services to survivors of sexual assault. Only 15 percent of institutions in the national sample have a SANE available on campus. Approximately 42 percent of the nation’s largest public schools and 21 percent of the largest private schools have a SANE."
"Law enforcement officials at 30 percent of institutions in the national sample receive no training on how to respond to reports of sexual violence."
"More than 30 percent of institutions in the national sample failed to provide training regarding ‘rape myths’ to the persons who adjudicate sexual assault claims." (For example, it can still be rape if the perpetrator is an acquaintance or someone the victim had sex with previously.)

How can I be racist if I work with blacks
How can I be racist if one sold me slacks
I’m not racist I’m just like you. I’m best friends with a black or two.
i’m not racist, you see, it’s just a preference
i love eastern culture and its women’s deference
the west lost its way with no room for clemency
If I love Asian women, how’s that white supremacy?
i’m not a racist, i can’t be, you see
my great grandma’s grandma was part cherokee
plus one time i got called “cracker” to my face
don’t we all bleed red? i don’t even see race…
I’m not racist, blacks just need to stop complaining
Living in the past and white people blaming
I work hard, no handouts for every little fraction
If white privilege isn’t fair, then how is affirmative action?
Now, I’m not a racist, but here is a thought
Most blacks are criminals
Who deserve to be shot
And the white boys with machine guns
Who shoot up the schools?
Don’t call them immoral;
It’s mental illness, fools
I’m mad that this is composed of lines we’ve all actually heard.
*white person shoots up movie theater* oh he probably maybe had a mental disorder and rough childhood, i feel bad for him we should have seen the signs and gotten him help….
*black person gets shot unarmed* oh he probably was walking around like a gangster thug, i want a full toxicology report and i’m def gonna ignore the eye witness accounts of the incident because they are all…you know…black…and probably biased and lying.
