Still Not a Joke — Good Awareness Campaign From Just Detention International
What if your kid went to jail for trying pot, something that is very probable if your kid is black and living in a state like Texas. Does that mean they deserve to be raped? Does that mean that they should live in conditions that go against all human rights?
Most prison rapes are committed by prison staff. Even if you are heartless and do not care about the prisoners, remember that these prison staff rapists go home to their nice houses in the outside world. Remember that they are your neighbors, maybe they even have babysat your children. Remember that as long as some victims are dehumanized and ignored, many perpetrators will never be caught. And yes, these perpetrators do pose a threat to you and your family. Prison rape, rape in general, is everybody’s problem. And definitely not a fucking joke.
The idea that prisoners “deserve” to be raped is part of rape culture.
Rape is not a punishment. It can not be earned. It is a crime every single time, no matter what, no matter who the victim is.
No one deserves to be sexually assaulted in any way. NO ONE.

September 1st is coming up. That means babyrush in Norway with mothers trying to give birth today or Sunday to make sure thew are guaranteed a kindergarten spot for their kids. If they don’t make it they will have to relay on family\babysitters if they want to work, or in worst case where this isn’t possible stay out from the workforce for up to two and half years.
Hopefully someone will do something about this law as it’s consequences can be quite dire for families with few recourses and puts a huge pressure on the hospitals who have birthing high season while being understaffed due to the vacations.
The life long negative impacts of FGM.
so please do not ever let me catch you comparing fgm to circumcision.

Fuck this shit
Oh god. Oooohhhhhh my fucking God.
"LET’S BRING AWARENESS TO AN ISSUE THAT’S ALREADY BEEN SOLVED! "
FGM IS ALREADY IS ILLEGAL IN ALL OF THE WORLD.
CIRCUMCISION ISN’T. IT’S NORMALIZED AND LAUGHED AT.
Further proof feminism is useless
Making something illegal doesn’t mean that the problem has magically disappeared. Just recently there was a case in Sweden where they discovered that all the girls in the class had become circumcised, 30 (half) of them in category III, where they cut off stuff and sew the remaining parts shut.
Sweden was apparently the first western country to make FGM illegal and it’s also illegal for parents to have the procedure done outside of Sweden.
So the issue is far from being solved and will in many cases cause more serious damage then male circumcision.
That being said, male circumcision should also be made illegal, as both kinds of the procedure are a huge breach of the victims personal autonomy and can result in lasting damage for the victim whatever the gender.
