THE TRUTH IS that women have been raped whether they were wearing revealing clothing or when they were fully-covered. The Blame should be on the rapist. Stop Blaming the victim it’s become a scapegoat for evil.

The benefiting party in society has a funny way of putting out “Victim Blaming” counter theories and propaganda that is used to excuse their evildoing “She got raped because of what she had on”. This is a real one-sided patriarchal way of thinking. Men lets educate ourselves so that we can teach others not to fall into the propaganda.

In regards to this post the truth is there is never an excuse for rape. Despite what they may have us convinced of, we as Men are not animals or sexual predators. We have the power to think we have to think and we have the power to resist. As a Man you need to develop Self-Control , Self-discipline, and Self-respect. There is never a valid reason for anyone to sexually assault someone else. Have regard for human life. Why is it that the first thing people say when they hear a rape case is “What she have on?” how about “Why is he out here raping people?”

This victim blaming method is the same method used by White supremacy to justify slavery and blame it on the people who were enslaved yet we continue to buy into victim blaming theory.


Whether Africans sold themselves into slavery or not does not justify to horrific evil experience that European Nations have put the people of the African diaspora through. Break free of the nonsense folks. Stop Raping, Stop Evildoing, and don’t condone the bullshit.

Le1f to Lord Jamar: ‘I Know Oppressions You Will Never Understand’
In a recent New Yorker profile, former Brand Nubian member Lord Jamar took shots at Kanye West and openly queer rapper Le1f for straying from the genre’s alleged macho roots. Le1f, you may remember, made his network TV debut on Letterman last month wearing a kilt. “This started with the alpha males. And now it’s being given to the beta males to try to flex their shit,” Jamar said. Le1f responded on his Facebook page:

dear Lord Jamar,Choose your battles. If the whitening of rap is a concern to you, please leave my name out of it. If you think being gay is the same as being white, you are as ignorant as your enemies. I’m darker than you. I’m african. I’m a black man and I experience all the same racism you do, if not more, on top of homophobia, including from black men just like you. Are you proud of being a hateful member of a majority? Rap started out as a creative response to oppression, and no matter my outfit, I know oppressions you will never understand.All respect,Le1f

It’s a perfect response.

Don’t shame the girls who sent pictures of themselves half-naked to their significant others as a way to express eroticism which is healthy and natural… give the people hell who think it’s okay to destroy someone’s trust and distribute those images simply for entertainment purposes.

"Except you can’t show a topless woman on TV - and you can’t defibrillate a woman in a bra. So victims of heart attacks on TV are always male. Did you know that a woman having a heart attack is more likely to have back or jaw pain than chest or left arm pain? I didn’t - because I’ve never seen a woman having a heart attack. I’ve been trained in CPR and Advanced First Aid by the Red Cross over 15 times in my life, the videos and booklets always have a guy and say the same thing about clutching his chest and/or bicep.

And people laugh when I tell them women are still invisible in this world."

re: feministing - for women, heart attacks look different

My mom worked for 25 years as an ER nurse and is convinced that a lot of women die simply because folks only know heart attack symptoms that occur in males.

This is an always reblog for me because if my mother had realized she was having a heart attack, she probably would have survived.

No one should lose a loved one because they didn’t know what was going on.  This is SO IMPORTANT.

"Solitude will only quiet your longing, it cannot force it away.
Nothing lingers longer than loneliness.
If you still find yourself longing or lonely in your solitude,
redirect your focus from the company you keep in your space,
to the company you keep in your mind.
You cannot escape the voices in your mind, you can only quiet them by facing your ego.
And defeating the flesh that is a hungry beast."
