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.”

Oh my fucking god. Mandude coworker is trying to discuss rape culture with me and trying to argue that women are equally guilty for it because “some women support rapists”. I’m gonna wipe the floor with some man ass today.
Me: if rape is everyone’s fault, why over 90% of rapists are male?
Mandude: because they were not educated.
Me: how come men are the only ones who are not educated if men control the majority of the means of production and are the majority of the congress? What’s the difference between the education men and women are receiving?
Mandude: *can’t answer, complains about the conversation being innapropriate even though he started it, says he needs coffee and runs away*

i will say seriously that, while emma watson might have a certain level of autonomy she’s still an actress in hollywood with a brand and reputation to make palatable. radical celebrity feminists will literally never exist, politically radical A-listers will never exist. celebrities are not your political figureheads, trust me. similarly, general progressive representation does not = someone’s individual political standpoint, and if we all stop holding our breath for a celebrity with non “”“problematic”“’” views, we’ll be a whole lot happier and healthier.
