I remember in school one time, I had a teacher who was talking about abstinence, and she said, ‘Imagine you’re a stick of gum. When you engage in sex, that’s like getting chewed. And if you do that lots of times, you’re going to become an old piece of gum, and who is going to want you after that?’ Well, that’s terrible. No one should ever say that. But for me, I thought, ‘I’m that chewed-up piece of gum.’ Nobody re-chews a piece of gum. You throw it away. And that’s how easy it is to feel you no longer have worth. Your life no longer has value.

How many people died under a socialist government? Now, how many people have died under capitalism? Talk about capitalism being evil.
Saying this the day after the death toll of the Bangladesh factory disaster topped 700 is remarkably poor timing.
And anyway, wasn’t the Native American genocide an effort to expand capitalism westwards? And what about Pinochet and Suharto? The Contras? They were all capitalist. Pinochet was repeatedly praised by the Chicago School of Economics for his free market policies while leading a brutal dictatorship.
Seriously dude wtf.
It has to be a toy gun but this is still a fucked up photo!
I’m not sure about the gun in this particular photo, but the 5-year-old boy who shot his 2-year-old sister did have a real gun that is manufactured and marketed toward children of that age. And at least one particular model does come in pink.
If you rape someone, it doesn’t matter that you’re only 16.
If you rape someone, it doesn’t matter that you cry like a child in court.
If you rape someone, it doesn’t matter that you had a promising future.
if you rape someone, it doesn’t matter that your life is destroyed.
If you rape someone, it should haunt you for the rest of your life.
You raped someone.
You deserve every ounce of justice we can place upon you in court of law.
