Let’s be real, in a time before the internet people didn’t have more adventures and make more meaningful connections. They watched TV and listened to CDs. Before that they listened to records and read magazines. Before that they listened to the radio and read bad dime novels. Before that they embroidered or some shit.
People have been staying inside and ignoring other people for as long as there have been buildings.
I mean this is cute and all, but there are already products out there that do this (cups, straws, and coasters) which already test for this. Also according to a study done in 2005 by the U.S. Department of Justice “DFSA (drug-facilitated sexual assault) is more of a problem due to the subject’s own drug use, rather than surreptitious drugging by the perpetrator.” (https://www.ncjrs.gov/pdffiles1/nij/grants/212000.pdf p. 9). And of course, women are always taught to always watch their drinks, go out in groups and watch out for each other. All this though is a bandaid, it ignores other problems with rape culture and reinforces stereotypes about how rape happens. What the study (and those that think this nail polish will stop rape) doesn’t consider though are victims who are under the influence of alcohol (for example the Steubenville Rape Case), or those who are raped by acquaintances (friends, community members, boyfriends/girlfriends). I don’t think there is a product out there that can prevent rape, sexual harassment or assault, other than people respecting each other and educating people on what is consensual sex.
but imagine if we had tiny little dragons
the size of puppies
and they would go wherever we went sitting on our shoulders and hissing at everyone who tried to touch you because you’re their most special thing in the universe and they are so tiny it’s ridiculously cute
the fact that this post has more notes than i ever expected makes me really glad
