Where Men gather, Women are exploited.
And where there are Women to be exploited, there are Men who have turned to the Internet to “rate” their experiences of raping exploiting Women.
Please understand this – there are websites DEVOTED to giving Men a forum to compare their experiences of Raping Women.
You know, so Men can tell other Men how to “get value for money.”
Have you ever looked at these mongering websites? In the UK, you have PunterNet, in the US, you have the innocuously-titled USA Sex Guide.
Women, you should Believe What Men Tell Each Other.
The Invisible Men: Let’s Talk About His Choices is a 31-day project for May. Each day, the blog will feature an image of a mask with a price tag, overlayed with text extracted from PunterNet reviews. The price tag shows what he paid in that particular transaction. Extracts will cover everything from rape/racism/trafficking/exploitation of poverty/age/pimping etc.
Maybe you’re one of those people who think “Sex Work” is Empowering. You should read what punters actually think and do, and consider the choices of Men.
Follow the Project on Twitter at @invisiblechoice, and the Tumblr blog here.
Consider the choices of Men and what they tell each other.
I was just so livid with “my side” this morning that I couldn’t stand to wait to reach out to you until I got to a computer. I just wanted you to know that I do NOT approve of the violent, sexually-charged threats that were made against you. I am so sorry that you have to go through this – no matter how much we disagree, nobody, not a single person, should have to suffer that. I read those messages and my stomach churned. I felt even more sick when I realized that, while folks were celebrating your removal from Tumblr, not one. single. person. spoke out to condemn the actions of the person that threatened you like that. I could rant about your tactics until I’m blue in the face, but I would still turn right back around and defend you in this case. I know you would do (and have done) the same for others whose views don’t line up with your own. Because, no matter our differences, we’re both women who are pissed off and fed up with this kind of bullshit. The only reason I haven’t said anything publicly yet is because I want to give someone, ANYONE, the chance to join me in speaking up. If not, i have a whole new blog post to write. I hope you are holding up okay, i can’t imagine how you must feel. We’re both women, regardless of our views, and I hate to see a fellow woman hurting like that. I hope you understand that I mean this genuinely, I wouldn’t have contacted you otherwise. – a private message I received from a Women who is a third-wave feminist after a Man threatened to rape me on Tumblr. I am pretty sure she never said anything publicly.
In 1964, Winston Mosely murdered Kitty Genovese, a lesbian, in Brooklyn, New York. Mosley killed Genovese over the course of a half-hour. Numerous people heard Genovese’s cries for help, and did nothing. Psychological studies of this phenomenon demonstrates that the greater the number of bystanders who view an emergency, the smaller the chance that any will intervene.
This is The Bystander Effect. […]

Because it’s totally rad to know sex is not gender, and sex matters.
Oh my god, Nick Rhodes is totally hot in makeup. And he’s not a woman.
Two fingers swipe
Radscum, cats, quotes, gifs
Cathy Brennan blogs her phone number
Full disclosure as we’ve come to expect
I skim by then stop
Apocalypse scenarios – revolution
Fingers swipe upward
I put her number in my cell
Just in fucking case

obsessed, seemingly mentally ill young woman plans pilgrammage to “confront Brennan”
Subject: Rufus Rufushy Ulrik
Good morning –
My name is Cathy Brennan, and I am a lesbian feminist activist in Baltimore, Maryland, U.S.A. Recently, a student at your school, Rufus Ulrik (formerly Cara), has been emailing me and contacting me via social media. This student seems disturbed. I do not want any contact with this student, as she has made numerous disturbing comments about women and rape on Tumblr, a social media website. See http://bugbrennan.tumblr.com/post/23825779979/how-is-it-repulsive-i-offered-you-my-mother-you and http://bugbrennan.tumblr.com/post/23825643262/hahah-outing-me-i-dont-give-a-shit-to-be-honest-you
Can you assist me please? I will be in the U.K. in July. You may also reach me at this email address. I am truly disturbed that someone this young would act this violently.
I am also reporting this user to Tumblr for abuse by copy of this email. They are user http://evenweirdosneedtoreblog.tumblr.com/
Good morning -
My name is Cathy Brennan and I am a lesbian activist in Baltimore, Maryland. Recently, a person who suggests they are affiliated with your team has been following me on social media. This person – Tear O’Bite aka Erin McCargar – is angry because I support the right of females to exclude transgender women from female-only spaces. Because I would not agree with her viewpoint, she followed me from Tumblr, to Facebook, to Twitter. She is now asserting I have engaged in “unethical” behavior by using Google to locate information about her that is easily accessible on the Google/Internet.
