I am so upset about this.
I recently graduated from KCL, which is generally a pretty good place. It’s full of at least reasonably intelligent people, so I would hope that there would be a general trend of common sense and open-mindedness in the student body.
Unfortunately, apparently this is not the case.
Recently, as you can see by the first picture, our Student Council voted to ban Blurred Lines from uni events and public spaces, mainly due to how it can be very triggering to sexual assault victims. In fact, many of the lyrics line up directly with things rapists have been reported to say to their victims.
The reactions to this have largely been that it’s an overreaction, it’s censorship on a par with communism, and that “triggering” isn’t a serious problem. People are dismissing it and mocking the decision, and all of that in itself is pretty triggering, if I’m honest.
It’s just incredible that people (Ryan, I’m mainly looking at you here) can be so fucking insensitive to issues that maybe they can’t personally relate to, but that no doubt some of their friends have experienced.
How do we make a change in a society like this? Please?
Censorship stops rape culture, guys!
enjoy this 8 page comic i drew in 1 day and inked in 2.

white person voice: this apple juice is too spicy
what. What the fuck does this mean. Who said this ever. No one. Not even white people. Fucking joke as they are. No one. Not even the Caucasian Americans say this. They’re real special they are. No one thinks apple juice is spicy. Did someone say this to you? Well they’re the only ones. We live in a world of spiceless apple juice. A righteous world it is. NO ONE FUCKING SAYS THIS NO ONE
Slow applause for our fucked up generation.
a spider was on my bed today so now i have to switch universities
Switching universes seems pretty reasonable to me
Saw this somewhere else and felt the need to post it cause no one else ever really tells you this stuff
My mom never really noticed. She noticed when she was breast feeding my little brother and blood started coming out instead of milk.
My mom said she felt and saw a little lump in the shower. She was lucky enough she found it at stage 2
My mom had a mammogram. The radiologist thought the spots were just regular calcium deposits.
Turns out it was triple negative breast cancer that had spread to her lymph nods. Mastectomy, radiation and chemo saved her life.
This could SAVE a life.
dont be embarrassed to reblog, this post could be life saving
Signal BOOST and pass it on. I had a breast cancer scare before (luckily it was just scar tissue…) and information like this kept me calm and collected at the doc’s.
As a cancer patient myself, who found my own cancer through a supposed LARPing injury last year, i know how scary it is and how important it is to catch it early. Please spread this around!
