    Reading about abusive men and the way they think. Very unsettling and an incredible book so far. Here are my very professional notes.

    what book is this?

    This is from “Why Does He DO That” by Lundy Bancroft.

    I’m so glad I’m seeing more and more Lundy Bancroft quotes on my dash because this book CHANGES THE LIVES OF ABUSE VICTIMS.

    The programs run for rehabilitating abusive men through the courts? Bancroft DESIGNED THEM. His programs are replicated ALL OVER THE WORLD.
    He literally wrote THE book on abuser rehabilitation.

    Here’s a link to a pdf copy. If you haven’t read this book yet, read this book.

    Can we talk about how it seems like the entirety of the book is online on PDF, this making it accessible to anyone with an internet connection?

    That is how we stop abuse.

    We enable everyone to know what it looks like, so that when it happens, they can shut it down.

    That’s not cool Tumblr and you know it, you’re basically forcing people to agree to this bullcrap. 

    of course they’re forcing you to agree. if you’re gonna use their services then you have to abide by their rules.

    yeah, that’s why it’s called “terms of service”

    because they will let you use their service if you agree to their terms

    What is the point in forcing you to agree if there is only one option that is so stupid it’s like a presidential election with 1 candidate a complete farce to be honest

    Are you guys just not familiar with how websites in general tend to work

    "I would like to buy a hamburger."

    "Ok, that costs $1."

    "I don’t want to pay that."

    "Then you can’t have a hamburger."

    "Why are you forcing me to agree to this? You’re only giving me one option!"

    Force kids in school to read crappy, overrated books that are “the best books ever written” solely because they’re “classics” and then call those kids idiots because those aren’t the kind of books they like to read and sit back and wonder why we have a nation full of multiple generations worth of people who willfully and proudly refuse to read.

    So my facebook friend just posted this pic with this text….

    Well, I just witnessed blatant racial injustice with my own eyes. I was getting in my car after exiting a store when a young black man stumbled past me and collapsed against the store wall. When I got out to see if he was okay, a group of white people came rushing over, one of whom was a 20-something white woman who declared in distress, “I ran a red light and hit him with my car!” People immediately assured her that SHE would be okay, meanwhile the young man is writhing in pain on the ground, pants leg torn, tears running down his face. When the police arrived and the young woman explained what happened, it was suggested to her that maybe the light had been yellow and that the young man had “darted out into the street into her path.” I was floored. I said, “But she just SAID she ran the red light and hit him in the intersection!” 

    The police officers then led the young woman away and began talking with her privately in low tones. When the paramedics FINALLY got there I was surprised at the hostility they showed towards the young man. One blonde female EMT (shown in the photo) suggested that he couldn’t be THAT hurt if he was able to walk from the place where he was struck to the sidewalk where he finally collapsed. White bystanders commented several times about “What that poor girl must be going through.” I was the only one who commented on what the young man must be going through, what, with his mangled leg and all. I am absolutely positive that in the end “that poor girl” will be absolved of all wrongdoing and be able to go on her merry way. After all, she just ran a red light and slammed her car into the body of some black kid on a bike, right?

    And people wonder why black people are so angry and want to break shit.

    friendly reminder that studies have shown that white people do not empathize with Black people and we (including medical personel) also think Black people feel less pain
