As a rape survivor who is being personally victimized by this person, I’m asking for help from my fellow followers

I just looked at his blog and all his posts are about supporting rape. Please report

Here’s an example of a decent letter to send to abuse@tumblr.com:

There is an individual who is repeatedly making rape threats. Their account name is http://jtard199.tumblr.com.

You will see that they are in violation of Tumblr’s Community Guidelines.

Please take proper action.

Thank you for your attention to this matter.

Just a reminder that this person is indeed violating Tumblr’s Community Guidelines.

When you are an affluent-seeming white man and you ask for things that don’t belong to you, sometimes you’re not really asking. It’s sort like Bill Clinton asking Monica Lewinsky to have sex with him. There’s a context behind the asking.

When you ask a serviceperson for something that doesn’t belong to you, there is often a subtext of, “If I complain to your manager, you know your manager is going to listen to me. Just look at me, and look at you.”

And sometimes, of course, this is not the case at all, and you’re just being a garden-variety annoying customer. Or a bully.

If you seem to be “getting everything you want,” you should probably examine whether you’re getting it at someone’s expense, or whether you’re just constantly, in small ways, making the world worse.

William Bratton: Investigate Ryo Oyamada's Death

dynastylnoire:

Ryo Oyamada, a 24 year old student from Japan, was struck and killed by an NYPD vehicle in a hit & run.  Witnesses say the police car had no lights or sirens on and was going over 70 mph.  The released footage by NYPD was proven to be heavily altered in a cover-up, showing “lights” on the vehicle, when compared to footage from the NY Housing Authority on the same street with the same timestamp. 

On a personal note: I know that this will probably not be shared or reblogged very much, because Asians are not very prominent in American culture.  I understand this, because Asians (like me) are partially at fault for being so passive.  But I am begging you to please consider signing this petition out of human decency.  Ryo was just a student walking home, then struck by a nearly silent police cruiser going at excess speed, and the NYPD covered it up. 

Here is the side-by-side comparison of the released video footage, including updates from the case.  *Edit*  This article contains a link to a graphic video moments after the crash, showing the body of Ryo Oyamada and NY citizens yelling at the police.  Please advise, it is highly disturbing. 

And the following is an excerpt from the petition, which as of now only has 286 signatures.

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOST

Please sign the petition, it currently has less than 10,000 signatures.

CALLING ALL WOMEN:

black-american-queen:

I propose on August 26 we take to Twitter with the hashtag: #IWillNotSmile to raise awareness about the street harassment women face on a daily basis. Standing against men who are:

Demanding we act pretty for the male gaze.

Demanding we smile and submit to their requests.

Demanding that we fake a smile to boost their ego.

Demanding that women’s sole purpose in life is to be pretty and serve a man’s ever need.

I’m sick of being harassed daily. I am sick of being told “smile” by men.

And on August 26, I need all the women out there to join me and tell the world why We. Will. Not. SMILE.

Please reblog this so we can begin a conversation.

nightelfdruid:

Black kids are uncomfortable with being stalked and killed. I don’t give a fuck if you’re uncomfortable with people reblogging this shit just because you “come to tumblr for an escape”. This is reality for a lot of people. Grow the fuck up.

Ten Things White People Can Do About Ferguson Besides Tweet

onlyblackgirl:

addielady:

onlyblackgirl:

If you feel helpless, there are ways you can channel your rage and sadness in real life.

1. Join a peaceful protest.

They’re happening all around the country tonight, including at the Gateway Arch in St. Louis, around 7 p.m. Eastern. 

2. Recognize that Michael Brown’s death was not an isolated incident.

In 2012, more than 300 black people were executed by police, security guards, or vigilantes. In the last month, three other unarmed African-American men—Eric Garner in New York, John Crawford III in Beavercreek, Ohio, and Ezell Ford in Los Angeles—have been killed by police. Those are the ones we know about.

3. Stop saying “This can’t be happening in America.”

I understand the impulse, I really do. But that impulse only comes to those who are insulated and isolated from how America treats poor people and people of color every day. Langston Hughes wrote “America never was America to me” in 1935. If you didn’t quite understand that poem in your junior high or high-school lit classes, read it again, while you think about what’s happening in Ferguson. Let it sink in.

4. STFU about looting.

And call out your friends and family members who won’t. It’s been five days since Michael Brown was murdered. On one of those days, some furious, grieving citizens caused some property damage. Nine have been arrested. Every other day since then, police with more gear than American soldiers going into battle have been occupying the neighborhood where Brown died, attacking peaceful protestors with tear gas and rubber bullets. They’ve tear-gassed a state senator and Al-Jazeera reporters, and arrested an alderman. They’ve demanded that reporters leave the area and arrested two who didn’t move fast enough. “Disproportionate” doesn’t begin to describe it. If you look at all that and still think it’s important to talk about looting for “balance,” you should know that you sound like a racist asshole.

5. Look Around You.

If you live in an urban environment, you’re in a position to bear witness and document inappropriate and abusive police behavior. If you see an African-American neighbor being detained by police, wait to see what happens. Get your phone out. Download the ACLU’s “Police Tape” app, and if you see something that looks off, take a video that will upload directly to their servers, in case your phone is confiscated. Whatever police may tell you, this is your legal right.

6. Make a donation to a civil rights organization like the Southern Poverty Law Center or the ACLU.

7. Educate yourself about the systematic inequality that leads to civil unrest.

The St. Louis American ran a powerful editorial today that fleshes out the history of Ferguson. When you finish reading that, go somewhere quiet for a bit and settle down with Ta-Nehisi Coates’s “The Case for Reparations.” Don’t stop there.

8. Put pressure on your elected representatives.

Institutional abuse of African-American citizens is happening all over the country, and it demands a federal response. Talk to your senators and congresspeople about enacting policies to protect citizens from their protectors. While you’re at it, maybe suggest they work to limit the amount of military weaponry police can inherit from the armed forces.

9. Listen to your African-American friends when they try to tell you why this hurts.

If you don’t have any African-American friends, you might want to think about why that is.

10. Okay, go ahead and tweet.

And Facebook. Tumblr. Instagram. Vine. Amplify the voices of people on the ground, and help counteract the damaging narratives being propagated by some mainstream media organizations. It’s the very least we can do.

For white people wanting to know what they can do to help.

Number 9, all day everyday. 

#9 made me laugh for some reason.

Anonymous said: Hi I just want to warn all NYC Latina/WOC in the NYC area (he told me this is his preference) of a guy that goes by the username "NYCForester" do NOT go out with him. He is blonde with blue eyes. About 6" or so. In his early 30's named Michael. Cute and charming when you first meet him. We had plans to go for coffee then he changed it to a bar. Went "for a walk" and ended up at his place where he forced himself on me. Please avoid him at all costs. Thank you if you do post this.

okcreepsters:

We’re so, so sorry this happened to you, lovely anon. Thank you for speaking out. Feel free to message us again if there’s anything we can do for you.

This account no longer exists, but we’re publishing this post in the hope that people will be able to be on their guard for someone who fits this description in the future, since we think it’s likely a predator like this just makes new accounts to prey on more women.

Look after yourselves out there, my darlings.
