"There are consequences when you make a mistake like that. I stand behind Ray, he’s a heck of a guy, he’s done everything right since. He makes a mistake, he’s gonna have to pay a consequence. […] I think that’s good for kids to understand it works that way, that’s how it works, that’s how it should be." - John Harbaugh,

Yeah, p cool for kids to understand that you can brutally beat your partner in the elevator of a public building, that it can be captured on camera and distributed widely for the whole world to see, and you will have to “pay the price” of SITTING OUT FOR TWO GAMES.

Kickstarter for a performance art piece that’s just me throwing copies of Lundy Bancroft’s Why Does He Do That? at John Harbaugh and Roger Goodell and every other rich old white man that wants to take my money and advertise to me and tell me “women are important to us” while also protecting the men who are publicly and privately brutalizing the women in their lives and working to preserve a culture that rewards domestic abusers.

Ladies, Buy Your Pink Ray Rice Jerseys Today!

Seriously, so many feelings about women and football and domestic violence rn.

ETA: And literally screamed at my desk in exasperation/rage/defeat at the first comment, “Janay Rice prefers the purple because it goes with everything.”

"As a thought exercise, how many predators would have to be on the team [Notre Dame] before you no longer felt like cheering?" - Melinda Henneberger, quoted in "Notre Dame’s Real Dead Woman"

(This quote has been sitting in my drafts for a lifetime, but I returned to it today in light of the Ray Rice stuff & my ever conflicted feelings about being a girl who watches football. How do I negotiate my love of a sport and many of its players, the way that sports bolsters my sense of civic pride and identity, with the reality of the fact that both the NCAA and NFL refuse to hold their players accountable for very real charges of sexual assault and battery?)

Cause she’s sweeter than a honeycomb 
And that’s why you stay at home 
And she’s slower than Valium 
And that’s why you stay at home

"She combs her hair over and over"

I would refuse to get married to a dude if he wasn’t into this song playing some kind of role in the wedding/the rest of our lives

Love that bthny tagged this with “this song is more important to me than any dude.” So true.

Young Scientists Say They're Sexually Abused In The Field

If you work in/are involved with the research community, please read this. I often wonder about the students and post-docs we send out into the field and how the hierarchies of power in research/academic communities inform their safety.

ETA: From the comments, “Meh, what do expect when a guy invites a girl on a trip? If he was truly looking for a competent assistant he would have brought along another guy.”

ETA 2: “If sexual harassment (as opposed to romantic entanglements) were so prevalent I think I would have heard a lot more rumors, back in the day.” Man, fuck scientists.
