False rape accusations are an anomaly.
True rape accusations are a norm.
You’re, quite literally, more likely to be killed by a comet than falsely accused of rape.
Re-blog now, read later.
"Because 1 in 33 men will be raped in his lifetime, men are 82,000x more likely to be raped than falsely accused of rape. It seems many of us would do well to pay more attention to how rape culture affects us all than be paranoid about false accusers.”
|first kid:||red hair!|
|teacher:||(immediately nods and writes "red hair" on board) yup, that is one of alex's properties, sure.|
|another kid:||brown eyes!|
|teacher:||(nods and writes on board)|
|yet another kid:||freckles|
|teacher:||all great answers, (writes on board) anything else?|
|Lets call him Bob:||Shes a girl|
|Teacher:||(Pauses, looks at me, then back at the kid) Well it's not my place to confirm that, besides, you have no idea whether Alex is a girl or not.|
|Bob:||Well she's got boobs|
|Teacher:||(Doesnt even get mad at the smartassish response, just nods calmly) Yes, now, having boobs is a property. Gender on the other hand is much less physical, and a lot more mental. Just because she has body parts that are recognized generally on females, does not mean that she's female herself. So why don't we say, instead of "she's a girl" we'll just say she has boobs|
|Teacher:||(writes on board "Alex has boobs")|
