Stockholm syndrome with toxic parents.
Because they act and say the most ignorant and hurtful things, but you can’t stay mad at them for long. And when one of them says something especially unacceptable and you try to stand up to them, you turn into an inarticulate child. Well thought out arguments disappear. Any trace of a backbone is gone.
You rely on them for everything, you’ve ALWAYS relied on them for everything. And you just accept the toxicity that comes along with it.
This article contains some very useful, very concrete tips on how to attack rape culture in your social circles
An excerpt from the writer’s response when asked in the comments what parents should tell their daughters going off to college:
"The best advice you can tell her is to tell her how the rapists act and what their targeting routine looks like. You can tell her that defending her boundaries, even if it makes her a “bitch,” is an important component of her safety, that people who think violating them is funny are assholes and people violate them progressively to see what she’ll do are dangerous. That’s more important than anything you can say about alcohol, and it’s what I’ve told my own relatives in high school."
im going to cry
ok but I looked at the picture first then started reading the sentence and was briefly horrified

Inspired by The Female Armor Bingo, I present to you my short guide to armor bust areas, to better help you decide what to wear :P
Any resemblance to particular armors, living or dead, is purely coincidental. Well… mostly.
Edit: Here’s a follow-up picture- the butt area
Given how people generally seemed to like my previous female armor post (save for one comment that argued that criticizing the depiction of warrior women wearing these and stating that in real life warrior women wouldn’t wear anything like that and that these are highly sexualized is slut-shaming of fictional characters), I’m happy to present part two. Originally it was going to be about torso armor, but several people asked for butts. Now, I hadn’t given thought to butts as much, because unlike boobs, that are depicted as existing almost separately from the entire body, butts are more often incorporated into the rest of the outfit.
I’ll make sure to reblog any other continuation of this series :)
Let me also take this opportunity to announce that my Female Armor Bingo, which inspired yana's work, is ALSO getting a sequel! The second card is getting published tomorrow, so keep an eye out for it :)
