Go see the book of life!!!! go now!!!!

The book of life was amaaaaaaaaaaaazing!!!
how is he doing this
The photo on the left is Chief Big Foot. He and an estimated 300 Native Americans were massacred at Wounded Knee in 1890 by the United States Army. Most of them were women and children that died face first in the freezing snow, shot in the back as they tried to run. This incident is a drop in the bucket as compared to the literal genocide that took place here until the early 1900’s and the cultural genocide that some argue still takes place today. Of the millions upon millions that were executed, NONE were dressed as a “Slutty Indian” or the ill representation of “Pocahontas.” These people were AND ARE more than a costume or a fake headdress. You may find this petty or sensitive, perhaps we should “grow up” or “focus on other real issues.” I wish we could. How can a people be taken seriously about the “real issues” if we are still a slutty costume at a Halloween party, a crude drawing on a baseball jersey, or a derogatory mascot on a football helmet. If you wouldn’t paint your face black and dress as a slutty African American woman, why on earth would you do that to a Native American and think it isn’t racist, that it’s “in good fun.”
I love Halloween as much as the next person, probably more since it is the day after my birthday, but we can all have fun without being an ignorant bigot. I implore you to respect our culture, to respect our traditions, and to respect our ancestors. I BEG YOU TO RESPECT US!
I’ve never heard it put so well before.
((edit: here’s a link to the post this ding dong is referring to tw for images of a battered woman’s injuries)
I don’t give a fuck if YOU think my comment doesn’t help anything. i COULDN’T GIVE ONE SINGLE, NARY, FUCKING FUCK IF YOU THINK I’M PART OF THE PROBLEM.
Because while you waste your energy on how I verbally express my frustration and exhaustion at men who stay cultivating an environment where women whom are victims of domestic violence are vilified for staying or even end up married to their abuser and are deemed mentally unstable AND STIGMATIZE US FOR IT and are further degraded for their situation AND END UP COUPLING THAT UP WITH THE FORSAKEN DECISION THAT SHE JUST DIDN’T END UP WITH THEM???
Here’s some devastating statistics that are effected by that environment HIS VIEWS SUPPORT, EFFECT, AND PERPETUATE;
1 IN 3 WOMEN WILL BE PHYSICALLY ABUSED BY AN INTIMATE PARTNER; Hey so damn let’s just jab fingers at images of a battered woman and talk shit about her for some hypothetical assumptions that she’ll end up marrying that dude who beat the shit out of her and then make it about how rejected it makes your piss baby ass feels. Because how charming is making women feel wholly responsible for not just their abuse but for how their right to say no to YOU makes mentally stigmatized. Because nothing says rape culture like willfully turning a blind eye to the overwhelming amount of women who are abused and slighting the blame onto us for staying rather than even entertaining the thought that “DAMN MAYBE WE AS A SOCIETY ARE FUCKING TERRIBLE TO THESE WOMEN”
WHICH LEADS ME INTO MY NEXT STATISTIC
WOMEN WHO ATTEMPT TO LEAVE AN ABUSIVE RELATIONSHIP OR HAVE LEFT ARE 75% MORE LIKELY TO BE KILLED BY THEIR ABUSER THAN WOMEN WHO STAY. So wow we’re the fucked up ones when all we’re trying to do is stay the fuck alive. But the even fucked up thing is it takes an average of 7 TIMES FOR A WOMAN TO BE ABLE TO LEAVE AN ABUSER FOR GOOD.
7 FUCKING TIMES.
Which now this leads me into my NEXT STATISTIC;
SO WHILE THIS MAN WANTS TO SLANDER WOMEN IN ABUSIVE RELATIONSHIPS FOR STAYING AND MOCKING THEIR TRAUMA/MENTAL STATE AND INSTINCTIVE REASONS FOR PRESERVING THEIR FUCKING LIVES, INTIMATE PARTNER VIOLENCE ACCOUNTS FOR 18.5 MILLION MENTAL HEALTH CARE VISITS ANNUALLY.
But let’s also bring up that…uh…
1/3 OF WOMEN WHO ARE VICTIMS OF HOMICIDE ARE KILLED BY THEIR DOMESTIC PARTNERS. AND THE LEADING CAUSE OF FEMALE MORTALITY IS FROM DOMESTIC PARTNERS AND ARE MOST LIKELY TO BE KILLED BY A MALE PARTNER/FORMER PARTNER THAN ANY OTHER PERSON!
SO YOU TAKE THREE RANDOM WOMEN WHO HAVE BEEN KILLED, AT LEAST ONE HAS BEEN KILLED BY THEIR HUSBAND/BOYFRIEND/FIANCE/WHATEVER.
Also, did you know DOMESTIC ABUSE ACCOUNTS FOR MORE PHYSICAL INJURIES TO WOMEN THAN RAPE, AUTOMOBILE ACCIDENTS, AND MUGGINGS COMBINED!
AND THE BIGGEST WHOPPER FOR WHY I COULD NOT CARE LESS ABOUT WHY ME SAYING MEN ARE TRASH AS MY COMMENTARY TO A POST DISPLAYING A MAN VICTIM BLAMING AND MOCKING A WOMAN’S MENTAL STATE WHILE BEING A VICTIM OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE IS THAT BECAUSE HE JUST CAN’T UNDERSTAND WHY SHE DOESN’T WANT HIM IS….
95% OF DOMESTIC ABUSE PERPETRATORS ARE FUCKING MEN.
YEP. REGARDLESS OF THE VICTIM, 95% OF PERPETRATORS ARE FUCKING MEN
AND THAT DOMESTIC ABUSE IS ONE OF THE MOST CHRONICALLY UNREPORTED CRIME NEXT TO RAPE (IN WHICH MOST, INCLUDING ME, WILL AGREE RAPE IS DOMESTIC VIOLENCE)
NOW TELL ME AGAIN HOW THAT WAS JUST HIS VIEWS.
And because I feel like it here all the resources for your little mistaken heart to enlighten itself with;
