Two MSU basketball players raped a woman in the dorms then one admitted to it. Their only consequence was that they had to move out of the dorms. This picture is of me and one other woman holding up this banner during Midnight Madness. Two other brave souls had a banner on the other side for a while before some jerk started playing tug or war with them over it. This was taken before we got booed at by 10,000 people and police escorted from the stadium.
How screwed up are people to boo at this?
Let’s keep reposting this. Rapists should be charged.

A feminism comic I did for my uni’s newspaper. I wish I had a bit more time to work on it, but I’m pleased with how it came out considering the tight deadline!
"Not having sex with someone who didn’t enthusiastically want to have sex with you…is a bullet dodged, not an opportunity missed."
"Education about consent can start before education about sex. If we teach our children to respect others, they’ll grow into respectful adults."

YES THANK YOU
We also need to teach children that they have a right to say no, and that their bodies are their own. Because that’s where it starts: kids are taught that they don’t have any right to personal boundaries, and they carry that with them all their lives. Is it any wonder that their sense of boundaries as adults is completely fucked up?
when women are raped while drunk it’s their fault for drinking alcohol
but when men rape people while drunk they couldn’t help it because they drank alcohol
^according to rape culture (just in case that’s not obvious)
