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.


A survey of 236 colleges and universities, released in July by Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.), found that more than 40 percent of those schools had not conducted a single investigation of sexual assault in the last five years.

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.)

these anons are like, "can i be racist in the rain? can i be racist on a train? can i be racist in a box? can i be racist with a fox?"








lmfaoooooooooooooo Yes!

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.

I heard a joke once: Man goes to doctor. Says he’s depressed. Says life is harsh and cruel. Says he feels all alone in a threatening world. Doctor says, “Treatment is simple. The great clown Pagliacci is in town tonight. Go see him. That should pick you up.” Man bursts into tears. Says, “But doctor… I am Pagliacci.” Good joke. Everybody laugh. Roll on snare drum.

Before you say yes, get him angry. See him scared, see him wanting, see him sick. Stress changes a person. Find out if he drinks and if he does, get him drunk - you’ll learn more about his sober thoughts. Discover his addictions. See if he puts you in front of them. You can’t change people, baby girl. If they are made one way, it doesn’t just wear off. If you hate how he acts when he’s out of it now, you’re going to hate it much worse eight years down the road. You might love him to bits but it doesn’t change that some people just don’t fit.
