Taylor, 22, devoted fangirl.
That about sums it up.

“We live in a country where politicians call rape a “gift from God” and suggest that women regularly lie about being raped. Where a group of young men in high school think so little of sexual assault that they thought it was fine — hilarious, even — to post pictures online of a passed out rape victim, and to live-tweet the rape, joking about the victim being urinated on. We live in a country where media as revered as The New York Times finds it necessary to describe an 11-year-old gang rape victim as “wearing makeup and fashions more appropriate to a woman in her 20s.” Where a woman can be fired because her boss finds her “irresistable” and a woman’s rape case falls flat because she isn’t married. It’s time to acknowledge that the rape epidemic in the United States is not just about the crimes themselves, but our own cultural and political willful ignorance. Rape is as American as apple pie — until we own that, nothing will change”

Hey guys! 

Just wanted to let peeps know that bored ol’ me is setting up a small online shop with necklaces, bracelets, and whatnot that say things like “survivor”, “live”, and “fearless” (obviously inspired by Olivia Benson’s ‘fearlessness’ necklace and just Mariska Hargitay in general). 1/4 of the profits will go to The Joyful Heart Foundation and shipping is free within the US!

If you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to message me! :)
