Besides the type of person who uses rape as punishment is the type who sees sex as their just reward, something they have a right to. That type does not need to be violent, does not need to be the outright asshole that most people would peg as a red flag to avoid. The just reward type is the kind who tells you how downtrodden they are, how they never get what they want, how everybody uses them and nobody is a real friend. They guilt you for saying no, they try to guilt you into a yes by buying you gifts and being "nice". This is the "nice guy". It's not just the stereotypical frat bro who hides his rapes among sexist jokes; the downtrodden nice guy does it too.
My wife, Jill Meagher, was murdered by a man who can easily be described as the sum of all evils – but we should not fall prey to the 'monster myth'

Math says the US is an oligarchy. Not a republic. The study is linked within the article.

Yet another lesson for yet another crime because yet another person wouldn't listen the first time.

'Why don't they just say no?"
Because it doesn't stop you.

For one whole minute I thought the top photo was a reference to Mean Girls' "we wear pink on Wednesdays" meme. For one whole minute, rape culture did not exist. They were clearly just '00s tweens.

I wonder if this idea can be extended to other kinds of toys. Imagine how much you could teach people about keeping only what matters, only what's actually used, instead of simply hoarding increasingly more stuff. Not to mention the ability to try new things without the crushing investment should the child decide they don't like it, as happens when you're young and learning to navigate wants and value.

Donation is sort of like this. The issue there, though, is that you only have access to things people have donated--with a subscription type service, you have access to everything the company does, not restricted to only things people in your area give up. Imagine the company getting deals with toymakers to provide the seasonal hot items, the way Netflix does. It'd be a way to reach far more people than they could normally, who wouldn't buy it due to the high sticker price or because it doesn't have the lasting value some people require, or because they're not familiar with the quality of the brand. Any number of reasons. All the shows you try out because you have Netflix, you'd do the same because you have this toy subscription.

If periods were treated the same way our inner twelve year old treats everything else, these are the panties you'd buy for it.
