When people ask me what rape culture is, or try and tell me that it doesn’t exist, I’m going to show them this article.
Reblogging again because important.
This article is disgusting!… What to do when your girlfriend or any woman says no to sex? The only answer: Stop!The fact that this doesn’t have more notes scares me.
not even 600 yet? this is disgusting
