I watched the movie called:womb. The one with Matt smith. Pretty weird. Spoiler alert: he kisses his mom
Two weeks ago a man in France was arrested for raping his daughter. She’d gone to her school counselor and then the police, but they needed “hard evidence.” So, she videotaped her next assault. Her father was eventually arrested. His attorney explained, “There was a period when he was unemployed and in the middle of a divorce. He insists that these acts did not stretch back further than three or four months. His daughter says longer. But everyone should be very careful in what they say.” Because, really, even despite her seeking help, her testimony, her bravery in setting up a webcam to film her father raping her, you really can’t believe what the girl says, can you?
Everyone “knows” this. Even children.
Three years ago, in fly-on-the-wall fashion of parent drivers everywhere, I listened while a 14-year-old girl in the back seat of my car described how angry she was that her parents had stopped allowing her to walk home alone just because a girl in her neighborhood “claimed she was raped.” When I asked her if there was any reason to think the girl’s story was not true, she said, “Girls lie about rape all the time.” She didn’t know the person, she just assumed she was lying…
No one says, “You can’t trust women,” but distrust them we do. College students surveyed revealed that they think up to 50% of their female peers lie when they accuse someone of rape, despite wide-scale evidence and multi-country studies that show the incident of false rape reports to be in the 2%-8% range, pretty much the same as false claims for other crimes. As late as 2003, people jokingly (wink, wink) referred to Philadelphia’s sex crimes unit as “the lying bitch unit.” If an 11-year-old girl told an adult that her father took out a Craigslist ad to find someone to beat and rape her while he watched, as recently actually occurred, what do you think the response would be? Would she need to provide a videotape after the fact?
It goes way beyond sexual assault as well. That’s just the most likely and obvious demonstration of “women are born to lie” myths. Women’s credibility is questioned in the workplace, in courts, by law enforcement, in doctors’ offices, and in our political system. People don’t trust women to be bosses, or pilots, or employees. Pakistan’s controversial Hudood Ordinance still requires a female rape victim to procure four male witnesses to her rape or risk prosecution for adultery. In August, a survey of managers in the United States revealed that they overwhelmingly distrust women who request flextime. It’s notable, of course, that women are trusted to be mothers—the largest pool of undervalued, unpaid, economically crucial labor.

THE CUTEST AND MOST ADORABLE THING YOU WILL EVER READ IN YOUR WHOLE LIFE
HOW ARE NOSELESS AND MOUTHLESS THOR AND LOKI SO ADORABLE
(Source: The amazingly talented and creative Lauren Gracek)I kinda love that this is less grim than the story it’s based on.
OKAY I JUST REALISED
According to the Casebook, Moriarty is born in 1976, and Sherlock in 1981. That’s a five year difference. Carl Powers was 11 years old when he died (well, murdered), and that was in 1989.
THAT MEANS MORIARTY MADE HIS FIRST KILL/STARTED MURDERING PEOPLE SINCE HE WAS 13 YEARS OLD
YOU LITTLE MONSTER
AND SHERLOCK BEGAN HIS DETECTING AND INVESTIGATING AT EIGHT YEARS OLD (“Carl Powers, John. That’s where I began.”)
EIGHT YEARS OLD
CAN YOU IMAGINE A TINY KID SHERLOCK SNOOPING AROUND FINDING CLUES AND TRYING TO FIND EVIDENCE FOR THE MURDER
YOU LITTLE GENIUS
YOU REALLY WERE JUST A KID IT MAKES SENSE WHY THE POLICE DIDN’T LISTEN
NO WONDER MORIARTY’S OBSESSED WITH YOU BECAUSE YOU GUYS GO WAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYY BACK
CHILDHOOD NEMESIS ENEMIES RIVALS WHATEVER
BECAUSE HAVING CHILDHOOD FRIENDS INSTEAD IS WAY TOO ORDINARY ISN’T IT
Reblogging this for the second time because:
BA DUM TSSSHH.
Not to mention the fact that Carl Powers was eleven years old
I always pictured him as some douchebag high school junior or senior who sort of had it coming
He was a fucking sixth grader
the fact that kids feel physically ill and have mental breakdowns at the very idea of going to school should be a clue to some people that maybe something isnt fucking right
