Anti-rape wear. Its almost impervious to knife attacks and tearing/stretching.

The waist and thigh extremities of the garment are cut and tear resistant (the guy in the video cant cut them with industrial scissors) and they cannot be moved more than a few centimetres when locked into place, the forward area in front of the genitals is also reinforced.

Please, for the love of god, even if you cant donate, just spread this idea wherever you can, they need $50,000 to be able to manufacture it and they currently have just over $6,000 with 20 days left.

Go to igg.me/at/AR-Wear to donate and/or view their full info.

PLEASE PLEASE SIGNAL BOOST THE SHIT OUT OF THIS I WANT MY NOTIFICATIONS FILLED WITH LIKES AND REBLOGS OF THIS

GUYS THERE ARE ONLY TWENTY DAYS LEFT AND THEYRE STILL FAR FROM THEIR GOAL
IF YOU CANT DONATE AT LEAST REBLOG TO SPREAD THE WORD

OK WTF

TUMBLR IS SO ANTI-RAPE SO WHYYY DOESNT THIS HAVE HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF NOTES??? SPREAD THE WORD!

It’s really upsetting to think that this kind of thing even needs to be invented/used but it obviously does and it’s important. I think the idea and concept will give women confidence and security IF they need it. Watch the video and if you can’t donate anything, reblog the post :) 

Too broke to donate, but I’ll boost the hell out of this.

This is brilliant.


Q:
Hi there! Idk if you are taking prompts, but I think this one is a gem for anyone interested: My local radio station is having a "hottest dads" contest for Father's Day where the winner gets tons of prizes. After hearing it all I could think was married-with-kids sterek. Stiles snapping sexy pics of hot-Dad!Derek & submitting them, determined to win. Then Derek complains at first, but then gets really competitive. Stiles reaps the sexy benefits of steamy photoshoots with his hot dad husband ;) (asked by Anonymous)

So, Monica wasn’t a fan of her work placement. Beacon FM might have been the hot dive back in the day, perhaps when The Beatles were storming America, but it’s most definitely peeked. She’s not even sure people listen to the radio these days. Monica sure as hell doesn’t. But, her journalism teacher Ms Barry is so freaking enthusiastic, and such a sweetheart that when she sailed into the classroom announcing she’d found Monica the perfect opportunity to further her grade, Monica hadn’t the heart to tell her no. 

Besides, her other option was to sit around and watch re-runs of Frasier all day, and though she’s appreciative of the banal humor, after a while she starts laughing like Sideshow Bob and judging herself. 

Summer is tough. 

Correction, summer was tough.

Okay, because of the confusion from partial tweets from the Team Wolf con in Paris, this is the exact transcript of Tyler’s answer to the Sterek question. I do have video proof of this moment, which I will post once I’m home.

The girl asking the question had a strong accent and spoke quietly, so at first Tyler didn’t understand the question.

*************

"Do you ship Sterek? It’s Stiles and Derek."

"Oh, Sterek! Uhm, I will say this, and I mean, I know, I’m glad you guys actually… Because I wanna say, I know that’s like a big, like, a fan fic thing, I know that everybody, kind of, kind of, everybody talks about that.

But for me, personally, just because I have so much respect for Derek as the character and for Stiles as the character that… for me, it’s like, to live in that, or to really think about that… I… just for me, personally, as the actor playing the character… I feel like I would be disrespecting the character, so I don’t really entertain it, or even think about it, just because for me, it’s such a separate thing, it has… it doesn’t really have anything to do with what happens on the show.

So because it doesn’t have anything to do with that… I guess I don’t have any thoughts on it, because, it’s… to me… It’s those characters are their own people… Uhm.. And, so it’s, it’s not a, it’s not disrespect, it’s not anything like that. I understand, I don’t personally understand… It… Completely. Um, I appreciate it. [laughter] You guys do what you wanna do. But to me it’s just like, I see the characters for who they really, actually are in the show, so it’s nothing to do with the work that I do. So that’s the only reason why I don’t really think about it.”

I really want to see what is going on behind the scenes with MTV, their sponsors, and Jeff Davis. Because this?

This is a complete one eighty from everything Tyler H has EVER SAID about sterek. Sober and drunk. And, look at this answer - he’s trying so hard not to sound like an asshole and yet he still says its “disrespecting” the character to imagine him in a loving queer relationship? That is not Tyler talking - he’s gone on record multiple times to say he’s not that kind of Christian, this isn’t something he would say without prompting.

Sterek bans at conventions and then this? There is something going on behind the scenes and I really desperately want to know what it is. Viacom owns MTV, right? Do we know anything about where they’re getting their money? Where they’ve been putting it?

Because this is upsetting and bullshit - and i blame the fucking powers that be, Tyler is NOT Jensen, and this is not how he reacts to sterek.

That’s interesting and very carefully worded

he does not cancel out sterek as a possibility in the show, he does not shame anyone for liking it, he doesn’t even shame it

what he said was that sort of fanfic is disrespectful to how he sees the characters

he’s avoiding cross pollination - that’s interesting indeed, often writers will avoid things like fanfic because they don’t want someone else’s interpretation to affect their own (and legal reasons) he didn’t say he didn’t ship it, he said he didn’t want to change his head canons and the way he plays the show by working entirely with canon, and doesn’t want to mess that up by interacting with fanfic

it’s open to interpretation but he hasn’t shut down sterek at all, he talked about not interacting with FANFIC not sterek, clever boy

Not only is he saying that, he’s saying that he’s not going to read FF so he can’t have an opinion either way. I think I can explain that better but I mean look:

Sterek “I know is sort of a FF thing” -> but because I respect the characters and it’s disrespectful -> “I don’t really entertain it” - -> BECAUSE  ”I feel that it’s such a separate thing” -> so “I don’t really have thoughts on it” -> “to me it’s those characters are their own people” -> but it’s not “disrespect” (Sterek, I assume) ->  ”I don’t understand” -> “I appreciate it” -> but [headcanons all the way] -> “that’s the only reason I don’t think about it”

He’s basing his entire point on the fact that he, as a person, thinks work is work so he doesn’t think it would be respectful to his work to read the FF about it.

and that I think is brilliant. Tyler managed to give up a really thoughtful answer that’s actually a patented non answer, that actually tells us more why he ISN’T answering the question when he didn’t have to. 

So just because you can fumble “I think FF is disrespectful” out of it if you wanted to PLEASE don’t and understand the context for those words: the ship thing is a FF thing, but he doesn’t read FF because it’s so related to his work so he can’t give an opinion. He’s sorry and appreciates it anyway, because Tyler is a sweetheart.

[Do me a huge favor and share this around, because I don’t really need to hear about a huge wankfest in the tags again. It’s TYLER FFS] 

(PS He’s not even saying that it’s better or not to read it, just that’s how he views his job! It’s the same answer that’s he’s always given, just on a different subject. Also, he’s a GoT fan he probably gets it a little bit.)

Wank through the ages

madlori:

Just in case anyone’s been thinking that fandom wank is some kind of new, revolutionary thing that we have to stamp out before it spreads, or that wank in any of our fandoms is just the Worst Ever, let me remind you about a little thing called the Astor Place Riot.

There were 20 killed and over 120 injured in a riot at the Astor Opera House in New York City when militia were forced to open fire on a mob of working-class citizens who were whipped into a brick-throwing frenzy.  The riot led directly to the creation of armed police forces.  It’s one of the most violent cases of civil disturbance in US history.

What caused the riot?

While there were certainly sociological underpinnings, what started the trouble was a dispute about which of two actors, one British and one American, was better at playing MacBeth.

IT WAS A SHAKESPEAREAN ACTOR FANDOM WANK.

The year?  1849.

This shit is not new.  It is not going away.  Unfortunately, it’s not a bug, it’s a feature.  We can do what we can do discourage it.  We can decline to perpetuate it.  But we will never, NEVER eliminate it.

"why do fangirls always make them gay?"

dsudis:

Imagine being in a relationship in which you are treated like an equal, consciously and unconsciously, sexually, emotionally, socially, romantically, without being bound by gender expectations, without risk of pregnancy (or having your reproductive rights taken away from you), without feelings of inferiority, without being mistreated or neglected because men don’t understand your body and can’t be bothered to learn how to give you pleasure (or that you even deserve pleasure). Imagine having a reciprocating relationship with someone who knows how to touch you and how to talk to you, who will never abuse you or take away your consent. Imaging feeling powerful, safe, like the default rather than the specific or second-class. Imagine not requiring special handling by awkward, inconsiderate men who were never taught any better. Imagine being allowed to touch and enjoy and indulge without apprehension. Imagine being able to trust your partner. Imagine knowledge and understanding, someone who sees your depths and treats you the way you’d treat yourself if you hadn’t been told from birth that you weren’t worth it.

Girls aren’t “making them gay.”

Girls are fantasizing about being equal.

I have wondering about this in fandom for many years and reading this just made me tear up. I figured this was a big reason, but breaking it down to this extent made me so extremely sad. I realized a long time ago that even if I met the nicest guy in the world, I still have to battle all those things mentioned above. Just being friends is hard. I don’t have a happy history in this area like a lot of women and I have major trust issues with men and I wish somehow that wall could be broken down and we could all truly be seen as equal…as people with value. If you have all of the above with someone of the opposite sex then you are really lucky. See women are expected to give all those things listed above and settle for not getting them in return. I believe it’s a rare thing if you have it returned. Like I said, if I was with the nicest guy in the world I will always doubt myself, think he see’s me as different, talk to me different… Why? Because that’s our experience. This world raises us to believe we are worth absolutely nothing. The idea of being equal is one of our greatest fantasies. 

It’s sad that it has to be a fantasy. 

It’s totally sad.

But on the other hand, slash writers are some of the most empathetic people I know. And they’re great educators, too, probably in ways they might not expect. A good slash fanfiction writer can help women understand their desires and overcome some of those feelings of shame and worthlessness.

Think about how many girls have learned how to masturbate thanks to slash fanfiction.

Sometimes just knowing that we’re all reading and enjoying the stories is an immense comfort. People will tell you that slash is trash, that fangirls are desperate and pathetic, but ladies telling ladies that they’re allowed is a powerful thing.

Yeah, oh man. This is. Yeah, this is a lot. I especially feel the taboo surrounding female sexuality to the point that even though I’m Pretty Gay myself, I’m uncomfortable with my own sexuality (not as in orientation) and also dealing with the sexuality of other women. Like in some ways, I am always hesitant to appreciate sexiness in women because we are almost never shown female sexuality in a safe, respectful, and equal way and it still freaks me out. 

I will never forget — and I wish so *badly* I still had a copy — the essay one of my exes wrote before she gafiated, in which she talked about how the act of writing slash and being part of the slash community in general had allowed her to “write herself back into her body”.

To, essentially, take off some of the blinders and filters western culture had put on her, all the things that had convinced her that, as an “overtall, fat, awkward, anxious, and altogether unattractive” person (she did have some anxiety issues, but none of the rest was true by any measure but all the lies we’ve ALL been told), she deserved neither happiness, nor romance, nor anything resembling sexual parity or satisfaction.

We met through fandom — she later told me she’d been quietly lurking on my mailing lists and around my websites for two years before she ever actually spoke to me — and we had four good years together before our relationship started to fall apart.

And, while not all of our happiness — together and separately — can be laid at the feet of the various slash goddesses, quite a lot of it can be.

Slash wrote *me* back into my body, too — several times, in several ways. Slash connected me to genders I never could’ve imagined, or could’ve imagined being *worth* connecting to in the days before I really understood the possibilities inherent to taking the media I had been given and *transforming* it.

We are *here*, and our pleasure is worth it — our pleasures, plural, are part and parcel of our identities.

And, you know, some of us, after we’ve been writing slash for a good, long while?

Find new ways to express those pleasures when women are there, new ways to understand those aspects of our sexualities — our *identities* — which include *hetero*sexuality.

It’s a journey. A process. A continuum. A spectrum. A *multiverse*.

Of *pleasure*.

And it’s all allowed.

Because we made it that way.

Because we *make* it that way.

Every day.

Oh, hey, Te, is that this essay, by any chance? http://jessica-ruth.diaryland.com/020301_62.html

Because I have been hanging on to that link for eleven years and still find cause to share it with people on a pretty regular basis.

Tyler Hoechlin getting the Sterek Book at Wolfs Bane 2013

Due to recent events, some people started spreading lies again about how NSFW the book is (feel free to read the book here) and how it made Tyler super uncomfortable. Instead of trying to once again dismiss all of those lies, you can listen to him yourself and take your own conclusions.

We never thought about publishing this, because, first, the person that recorded this didn’t want the whole MG to be public and, second, it was a very special moment to all of us. I could only listen to it today tbh. I’m not even kidding! Qhuinn can’t listen to it. It’s a moment that we will always hold dear and it will stay with us forever. I know that the audio is not the best source, but it’s the only one we have and hopefully that will clear up some misunderstandings.

Q:
Sterek "work with me here" (asked by Anonymous)
A:

felicitysmock:

"Stiles, I need you to work with me here."

"I’m sorry, Derek, but you had your chance, and you blew it."

"Stiles, wait—"

"I’m hanging up now."

"I can help! You need to listen to me."

"You sound like a crazy person," Stiles hisses. 

"If you loved me at all," Derek swallows, glances at the phone, up at the White House where Stiles is, somewhere, probably not wearing his wedding ring like Derek still does. "Then, you have to let me talk to the President."

There’s a silence, and then Stiles sighs, “Derek, the last time you were in the same room as Scott, you punched him in the face.”

"I thought you were—"

"I know what you thought," Stiles snaps, "And, you couldn’t be more wrong! Scott loves his wife, and I love yo— loved, whatever, look, we have bigger problems than our terrible marriage, right now.”

Derek tries not to feel too hurt about that particular comment, knows by the end Stiles was trying, and Derek was pushing him away. He knows, deep down, that Stiles wasn’t having an affair with Scott, but he’d felt so stupidly resentful. He’d missed having Stiles come home at night, loathed listening to his answer phone, or worse, trying to get someone on Stiles’ damn staff to give the phone to him. 

Now the world is ending, and Derek is damned if he isn’t going to be with Stiles when it happens.

Stiles headed upstairs, leaving water droplets in his wake, and stripped out of his sodden clothes in the darkness of his room, too tired to bother with the light. He pulled on a clean t-shirt and boxers and threw himself onto the bed, which grunted underneath him. Stiles, much to his almost immediate embarrassment, rolled off the warm, hairy lump on his bed with a scream, hitting the floor with a thump that rattled his bones. His dad came pounding up the stairs, roused by Stiles’ yell, and reached the doorway just as Stiles managed to hit the light switch.

He blinked in the sudden light, then kept blinking, because there was a big black dog laying on his bed and he was one hundred percent sure it was the dog he’d seen at the Hale house on Wednesday.

Once Stiles got his breath back he pointed an accusing finger at his father, who had yet to say a word, and gasped, “Didn’t get a dog, huh?”
