We buy a lot of clothes, but we don’t really need ‘em.
Things we buy to cover up what’s inside.
racism is real - misogynoir is real.
Just to put background on this shit.. .the top picture is of Ethan Couch. According to wikipedia and various news sources he is “a North Texas teenager, who was sentenced to 10 years probation after being convicted of killing four pedestrians and seriously injuring two others while driving drunk. On June 15, 2013 he crashed a pickup truck into pedestrians. He was 16 at the time. In December 2013 he was sentenced to therapy at a long-term, in-patient facility, after his attorneys successfully argued that the teen suffered from affluenza and needed rehabilitation, and not prison.”
The yoga, meditation and horse back riding are some of the amenities they have at the facility that is about $450.000 a year.
The bottom picture is of Cyntoia Brown. She grew up in a home with an abusive drunk father and a drug addicted prostitute mother. She eventually ran away with a friend and started ‘dating” (getting pimped) by older men. She stayed in deplorable conditions. The night of the killing, she just got her ass beat by her drug addicted boyfriend/pimp , when the victim Johnny Allen , a 43 year old sunday school teacher (side eye) who noticed her pain and talked to her. After hearing Cyntoia’s story, seeing her bruises, knowing she was underage he still tried to fuck her. What lead to the murder was Cyntoia thought he was going to kill her and shot him first..
She got no second chances after a long shitty life but in jail now at 25 she is working on her college degree ,still hopeful of seeing the outside world and trying to remain as reflective of her negative choices and be positive from her current position.
This is shit is disgusting, money, race, and class make a world of difference in the eyes of the law…
Reblogging here because our society and justice system protecting and valuing male abusers at the expense of female victims and not protecting or valuing female victims regardless of the circumstances contributes to rape culture in a major way.

To think that some people don’t see a problem with society is disturbing
it’s not just disturbing, it’s fucking scary.
but rape culture doesn’t exist, right
How can people even deny there is a rape culture with stuff like this around, same way they deny war on women
I can’t even. These things almost put me in tears every time. A rapist is a rapist. I don’t care if you’re drunk at a party, if you’re naked, if you’re wearing booty shorts. I don’t care if you’re a prostitute, a stripper, an escort. If you say no, IT MEANS NO.
If you wish to embody your truth and your greatness; if you wish to enjoy optimal quality of life and radiant well-being, you must take the all-important step of honing your intuition and honoring your inner Knowing. One thing we can expect when our sixth sense becomes more heightened, is…
