college is catered towards the able bodied and able minded. school applauds people who can stay up all night, skip meals, and work endlessly. that kind of extreme contribution is expected. why are disabled people being squeezed out of academic institutions? why should I feel inferior because of some arbitrary and ridiculous standard?
Just a friendly reminder for your fitness journey: Your muscles do not grow during exercise. Exercise is only the stimulus. The body strengthens the muscles while you are resting.
So make sure that you give 100% with rest, just like you would give 100% exercising.
My ex boyfriend used to always tell me “no one will ever love you as much as I love you” and I used to think it was romantic. Like, “aw he loves me so much that no one else’s can ever compare!” Now I struggle with accepting love and affection and identifying someone’s genuine interest in me because of it. Basically, know that statements like that are very emotionally and mentally abusive and manipulative and be careful not to romanticize it like I did.
this isnt about dragging or being problematic or getting back at me this is an actual attack on me and my safety this gofundme is my last resort at finding some kind of peace and refuge from this fucking horrible thing that i’ve been fighting with for the past 9 months honestly if you’re my friend or follower or whatever i beg that you please listen to me when i say nothing he says is true
My ex boyfriend sexually assaulted me in my sleep, was mentally and emotionally abusive and manipulative during our relationship. When he broke up with me, he became even more mentally and emotionally abusive and even verbally abusive - calling me a “fucking bitch” when I said I was taking our kittens (that I paid for and took care of) among other things. He attempted to kick me out of the apartment we shared (I had to call police so he would let me in) and even told me to stay in a women’s shelter instead. I was forced to quit my job and move back to California to live with my family if I wanted a [safe] place to live because my mental health and well being depended on it.
After returning to California and taking a few weeks to recover from his suicidal threats, his emotional and verbal abuse, and our break up, I came to Tumblr to speak about his abusive behavior as a way to seek refuge and justice so I can feel at peace.
Like I said in my previous post, a handful of bloggers attacked me in an attempt to defend my ex boyfriend by slandering my character so they can invalidate my statements. Tumblr user @fffcuk said I was lying because I was just bitter that he broke up with me and that I wasn’t really sexually assaulted in my sleep because I “consented but just didn’t remember so that’s not illegal.” She also posted very false information about me in the handful of posts she made. Another blogger participated in the attack by sharing @fffcuk’s posts and making her own dozen or so posts - including a screen shot from my personal blog which included a post where I admitted to attempting suicide twice - that ALSO contained multiple pieces of false information about me. Both of these bloggers were friends with my ex boyfriend and obtained the false information from him in his attempt to slander me/make me look “crazy.” You participated in my attack by sharing these multiple posts with your thousands of followers. You participated in my attack that slandered me in an attempt to invalidate/trivialize my assault and abuse by sharing these multiple posts. You participated in my attack that publicly humiliated and traumatized me by sharing these multiple posts.
You think a massive public attack like that over something like my abuse and assault didn’t impact my mental health or my well being? I was trying to seek refuge and some sort of justice after enduring months of his manipulative and abusive behavior so I could feel at peace and you denied me that by directly participating in my attack, so fuck you.
lindsaychrist is the world’s biggest piece of shit he openly mocked my sexual abuse by posting photos of crying altar boys in my tag not even 6 months ago how can any of you fucking believe a word he says
When I spoke openly about how my ex boyfriend (one of your close friends at the time) sexually assaulted me in my sleep and how he was mentally and emotionally abusive and manipulative, you participated (along with a handful of other bloggers) in the questioning of my character and the validity of my statements by sharing posts that attempted to invalidate my accusations and even slandered my character. One post in particular you shared included a screen shot from a post made on my personal blog; a post where I admitted to attempting suicide twice. The post that included a screen shot from my personal blog was made by another blogger (who still hasn’t apologized to me but I won’t say their name because they know who they are) and it also included very, very false information about me to slander my character. My character was purposefully slandered so my statements could be invalidated. You shared that post and it received 100+ notes solely because of you. I was publicly slandered and humiliated and it was absolutely traumatizing. So it’s not hard to believe that you would publicly defame someone’s character when you publicly defamed mine without question or hesitation when I was just trying to speak about my assault. Especially when this happened just about 6 months ago.
If you deliberately seek out any of these images, you are directly participating in the violation not just of numerous women’s privacy but also of their bodies.In what’s being called the biggest celebrity hacking incident in internet history, more than 100 female celebrities have had their private nude images stolen and published online. The bulk of the images posted have been officially confirmed as belonging to Jennifer Lawrence, but a complete list of victims’ names - including Krysten Ritter, Kate Upton, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Rihanna, Brie Larson and Kirsten Dunst - has been subsequently published. (Link does not contain pictures, only names.)The images were first uploaded by an anonymous member of the underground internet sewer known as 4chan and have since been enthusiastically shared across platforms like Reddit and Twitter. A representative for Lawrence has confirmed the images are real, condemning the theft of them as a “flagrant violation of privacy” and adding that “The authorities have been contacted and will prosecute anyone who posts the stolen photos.”There are a few different issues that a criminal act like this brings up, but before I get into them it’s necessary to make one thing clear: If you deliberately seek out any of these images, you are directly participating in the violation not just of numerous women’s privacy but also of their bodies. These images - which I have not seen and which I will not look for - are intimate, private moments belonging only to the people who appear in them and who they have invited to see them. To have those moments stolen and broadcast to the world is an egregious act of psychic violence which constitutes a form of assault.The people sharing these images are perpetuating an ongoing assault. The people gleefully looking at them are witnessing and enjoying an ongoing assault. When you have been asked by victims of a crime like this not to exacerbate the pain of that crime and you continue to do so anyway, you are consciously deciding that your enjoyment, your rights and perhaps even just your curiosity are more important than the safety and dignity of the people you’re exploiting.That out of the way, let’s get a few other things straight.1. This is not a ‘scandal’It’s a crime, and we should be discussing it as such. Some media outlets are salaciously reporting it otherwise, as if the illegal violation of privacy involving intimate images is little more than subject for gossip. When associated with sex, the word ‘scandal’ has been typically interpreted as something that assigns responsibility to all parties involved, a consensual act unfortunately discovered and for which everyone owes an explanation or apology. Remember when private nude photos of Vanessa Hudgens (whose name also appears on the list of victims) were leaked online and Disney forced her to publicly apologise for her “lapse in judgment” and hoped she had “learned a valuable lesson”? Never mind that Hudgens was an adult and a victim of privacy violation - the ‘scandal’ was painted as something for which she owed her fans an apology. Which leads us to:2. These women do not ‘only have themselves to blame’While depressing, it’s sadly unsurprising to see some people arguing that Lawrence et al brought this on themselves. Part of living in a rape culture is the ongoing expectation that women are responsible for protecting themselves from abuse, and that means avoiding behaviour which might be later ‘exploited’ by the people who are conveniently never held to account for their actions. But women are entitled to consensually engage in their sexuality any way they see fit. If that involves taking nude self portraits for the enjoyment of themselves or consciously selected others, that’s their prerogative.Victims of crime do not have an obligation to accept dual responsibility for that crime. Women who take nude photographs of themselves are not committing a criminal act, and they shouldn’t ‘expect’ to become victims to one, as actress Mary E. Winstead pointed out on Twitter.Sending a photograph of your breasts to one person isn’t consenting to having the whole world see those breasts, just as consenting to sex with one person isn’t the same as giving permission for everyone else to fu*k you. Victim blaming isn’t okay, even if it does give you a private thrill to humiliate the female victims of sexual exploitation.3. It doesn’t matter that ‘damn, she looks good and should own it!’Stealing and sharing the private photographs of women doesn’t become less of a crime just because you approve them for fapping activity. I’m sure many of the women on this list are confident of their sexual attractiveness. It doesn’t mean they don’t value their privacy or shouldn’t expect to enjoy the same rights to it as everyone else. It also doesn’t mean they want strangers sweating over their images. That line of thinking comes from the same school which instructs women to either ignore of welcome sexual harassment when it’s seemingly ‘positive’ in its sentiments.None of these women are likely to give a shit that you think their bodies are ‘tight, damn’. Despite what society reinforces to us about the public ownership of women’s bodies, we are not entitled to co-opt and objectify them just because we think we can defend it as a compliment.I will not be seeking out these images out and I urge everyone else to avoid doing the same. I hope that all the women who have been victimised here are being appropriately supported by the authorities and their network of friends. And I hope sincerely that more people take a stand against this kind of behaviour.Because this incident aside, it strikes me as deeply ironic that we will vehemently protest a free Facebook messenger app because we’re outraged at reports that it can access our phone’s numbers, and yet turn around and excuse the serving up of women’s bodies for our own pleasure. Our appreciation is no less disgusting just because it’s accompanied by the sound of one hand clapping.Source: Clementine Ford at DailyLife
