Dude.

My dad was telling me about these girls at his old college who invented a nail polish that paints on clear, and if you stir your drink with your finger with the nail polish on, it will react with the “Date Rape” drug and turn red.

Dude. It’s genius.

TW RAPE THREATS MISOGYNY VIOLENCE HARASSMENT

Above is the link boycotting the Main Street Comedy Pub for supporting rape threats and violence. Please like the page and share. Thank you all for your continued support. 

The comedian in question is Corey Keough, and along with our boycott of the venue, we want to directly call for an apology from him. There are several other venues that support open mic in the area without fear of rape for their patrons. Please support those:

kittykat-elyn asked: I seriously think some dude created a fake facebook just to give a positive review from a woman. The fb pic is of an actress from Degrassi (I know because I used to be obsessed) and is in fact her wikipedia pic. The profile name is Melissa Smith, and the actresses name is Melissa as well. I clicked the profile, and she has 1 friend, and is job is listed as comedy club co-owner/operator. The review just says "awesome place," but I wonder if some of the other guys are doing the same thing.


Answer:

color-me-damned:

Oh my actual god.

"Melissa Smith" should be reported for impersonating a celebrity. The offending profile url is https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100008127794114 and you need to paste: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Melissa-McIntyre/107459132617072?fref=pb&hc_location=profile_browser into the box where it says to type the name of the celebrity. For some reason, it doesn’t show up when you type Melissa McIntyre, I think maybe because it’s a page auto-generated by facebook, but it works if you paste in the url.

ATTN ALL FOLLOWERS—PLEASE SIGNAL BOOST, REBLOG TW RAPE THREATS, MISOGYNY

So, tonight, July 3, some friends and I went to this place, the Main Street Comedy Pub (formerly The Joke Factory), in Evansville, Indiana. Part of the night was open mic, and one of my friends was going to go up. We were there to support her, and as we waited for her to go onstage, we sat down and watched the comedian before her. 

TW RAPE, THREATS, VIOLENCE, ASSAULT, MISOGYNY, HARASSMENT

*******************************

One of the first jokes we heard was about lesbians. The comedian—this man, named Corey Keough Martin, was being generally gross and not too creative in his ‘comedy.’ I thought it was all pretty routine, but then he made a joke about date rape, so I called him out on it (loudly). He said something to the effect of, “Oh, you’re one of those feminists.” (He was not very funny, or intelligent, so this is, again, pretty well what I expected.) 

Anyway, this man went on to make a string of rape ‘jokes’—(as well as a joke about murdering women and/or babies), actually said he committed rape frequently and then threatened to rape me, calling me and my friends ‘cunts’. I got up then to walk out, and as I left, he addressed the audience (about 100 people), saying he was going to slash my tires after the show. He laughed and said that if he did slash my tires, I might get raped, adding, “Wouldn’t that be a good time for her?” 

After this threat of rape by the comedian as well as his advocating my rape by members of the audience, my friends and I decided to leave, feeling the place was unsafe. As we were outside waiting on our other friend, the manager on duty of the comedy club—this man, Mark Bryan—came out and asked who Juliette was (me). I told him who I was and he asked if I was okay. At first I thought he was on my side, but when I and my friends responded that we felt threatened and personally attacked, he became extremely defensive and told us it was all a joke, and not to come to comedy clubs if we were easily offended. I responded that the man wasn’t telling jokes—he was threatening rape and encouraging others to do so. My girlfriend and my friends were also telling him this—emphasizing how we felt as women in his establishment. 

Mark Bryan repeatedly told us it was all just a joke, and not to come out again if we couldn’t “take a joke.” Our attempts to get him to understand our feelings in the situation missed their target completely, and we drove away after getting his name. 

So here’s where I need your help. I don’t always feel enthusiastic about my city, but I do know it’s been a place I’ve felt safe for some time and would like to continue to do so. I can’t believe a place in my city would give a platform to a man like that, and I know my friends and I feel shaken after tonight. Please share this with your followers and spread the message. This is unacceptable. I don’t want harassment aimed at the comedy club or its owners, but I would like them to get the message that rape is never funny.

Their Facebook page is The Main Street Comedy Club.

Their Twitter is here.

Their phone number is (812) 453-7636. 

The comedian, Corey Keough Martin:

Again, I need your help with this. 

PLEASE leave comments telling them rape apology is never ok, and rape threats are not comedy. They’ve been deleting negative comments on their page, so please screencap your posts as well as any responses. 

Thank you all so much.

ALSO, they posted a new status about what occurred and they’ve completely dismissed the fact that RAPE THREATS (that is, not actual rape jokes, which are already horrible in themselves—but threats) occurred, threats which were directed at a member of the audience. 

This is the status:

For those of you who missed Thursday night’s open mic, here’s the dramatic version of what “kind of not really happened.” While we at MSCP don’t express our views on stage, we will give people a place to do it comfortably without fear or censorship. These men and women work extremely hard at their craft. They paint pictures with their words in your mind. Taking brushes away hurts creativity. We will not allow anyone to heckle or disrespect anyone who gets on stage here. If you are uncomfortable with the subject matter and get so offended you create a blog to work out some personal issues, we encourage you to take the stage and air your complaints. Great job to all of our performers tonight!”

So, evidently, they’re not okay with their performers feeling uncomfortable, but they ARE okay with patrons receiving threats of rape and bodily harm. The man that threatened me was not an artist, and he painted no pictures with his violent words. 

Please leave comments letting them know rape is never funny, and rape threats are not acceptable.

This was meant to be a quick warm up, but it turned into a comic that I’ve wanted to draw for a while. This is something that is extremely important to me, and I appreciate it if you read it.

A while ago, I heard a story that broke my heart. A family went a cat shelter to adopt. The daughter fell in love with a 3-legged cat. The father straight up said “absolutely not”. Because he was missing a leg. That cat was that close to having a family that loved him, but the missing leg held him back. Why?!

Many people have the initial instinct of “nope” when they see an imperfect animal. I get it, but less-adoptable does NOT mean less loveable. 9 out of 10 people will choose a kitten over an adult cat. And those 10% that would get an adult cat often overlook “different” animals.

All I want people to do is be open to the idea of having a “different” pet in their lives. Choose the pet that you fall in love with, but at least give all of them a fair shot at winning your heart.

Don’t dismiss them, they deserve a loving home just as much as any other cat. They still purr, they still love a warm lap, they still play, they still love you. Trust me, next time you are in the market for a new kitty, just go over to that one cat that’s missing an eye and see what he’s all about!

This post is part of the reason I adopted a one-eyed cat

Going Back to the Roots with Henrique Oliveira’s Transarquitetônica

To see more photos and videos from Transarquitetônica, explore the MAC USP location page and browse the #henriqueoliveira hashtag.

Brazilian artist Henrique Oliveira invites spectators to step inside his latest artwork and explore a giant wooden maze at São Paulo Museum MAC. His largest installation to date, Transarquitetônica is a 70 meter (229.66 ft) interactive sculpture made of tapumes, a plywood material traditionally used for cheap housing in Brazil. As the piece’s name suggests, Oliveira’s work speaks to the concept of time and evolution. Spectators discover spaces of contrast, as certain areas reference today’s modern architecture while sprawling branches symbolize man’s first dwelling.

incredibly beautiful.

or, you know, teach people not to rape other people…

Sadly, even if you teach people not to rape, they’ll do it anyway if they really want to, so these are still helpful in the event of rape, OR assault.

These self defense tips are not here to tell a person not to get raped, they are here to tell a person what to do in the event where someone is attempting to rape or assault them.
We do need to teach people not to rape, but we do not yet live in a world where rape and assault does not happen, and until we do, it’s important that we know how to protect ourselves in the event that it does happen. 

Someone get tumblr user  shinjaninja a medal.

This is something that some Navy SEALs taught girls in my gym class in high school. But there’s another rather effective (and kinda cool) tactic to use.
They used myself (A tall kid at the time, not very big but rather tall) and a rather skinny, tiny short girl for a demonstration. They had me grab the girl’s neck from behind—as pictured in the bottom left—and keep her in a tight headlock. Then the SEALs instructed the girl to drop to one knee and allow gravity to flip me over her shoulder onto my fucking head.
That’s right. No matter how small you might be, or how big and strong your attacker is, you can shift their center of gravity against them and flip them over shoulder with little to no effort on your part, allowing you time to land a blow and get the fuck out of there. And ever since then, I’ve taught my female friends that trick if time and circumstance ever allowed.Stay safe, ladies.

Imma add another tip:
Pointer and middle finger right under the jaw and push up. Try it, it hurts like hell, and it will get them to lift their head up at which point you can kick or elbow loose.

That one, and under the nose, too. Place your thumb under it, and shove upward. They’ll either back off out of reflex, or you’ll break their nose. Plus, it will shatter their concentration, and they won’t be able to keep a grip on you, which will let you get loose, and give you an opportunity to either escape, or employ another tactic.

Everyone needs to see this. Spread it
