About a month ago, Sophia Katz told me she was raped by a former friend and roommate of mine when she visited New York this past May. Yesterday, she published a piece chronicling the sexual abuse she experienced that week, using a pseudonym for her rapist. I shared the piece…
so this is what i ended up with for the “make your audience angry” assignment
i dont know about ya’ll but that phrase pisses me right the hell off
Side tip: if anyone ever grabs your hair like the above, clamp one hand HARD down on your scalp where the hair is coming out (think of how you try to immobilize your hair when brushing tangles out so it doesn’t hurt as bad, only do so at the scalp and not further down the hair). Then use your other hand to start hitting the other person (go for the face!) and blocking any blows they may try to make with their free hand. You can also step into them (which removes the tension on your hair) and start throwing your knees into their groin, stomach, kick the side of their knee, etc.
The reason hair-pulling works is A) it HURTS and B) it’s an effective handle, especially because your instinct is going to be to pull away. But reduce the pain and the tension on the hair and you have more room to work with until the other person lets go, at which point you can run like hell or otherwise defend yourself as needed.
Finally, I Get To Know What They Mean
Man, nobody ever told me these either. It would’ve been nice to have a clue about the ones for ‘bleach’ and ‘dry clean’, because they’re about as intuitive as a broken electric door.
WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON

hello! i’m the owner of the game grumps blog. i’m sorry this isn’t related to the regular content here, but this is very important to my own personal well being and safety and it would mean the world if some of you read and maybe helped me out out if you could.
i’m 22 years old and living at home with my father who has physically and verbally abused me for years. he is incredibly toxic to my mental health and i suffer from depression, anxiety, and other things i don’t feel comfortable to disclose.
i am working a part time job but because of long travel and short hours, i am spending the majority of my earnings on gas and the rest goes to my father who is making me pay rent to live at home. i am putting out applications for better places but i haven’t been hearing back from anyone.
i am in desperate need to get out and live a healthier life outside of my father and his abuse, but i don’t have anywhere else to go and i really cannot start to afford it.
i hate to ask for hand outs but i feel very trapped here. i know that there are other more important things to put your money towards, but anything at all would be a huge help for me at this point.
i wanted to offer some sort of service like commissions but i don’t have the state of mind to offer good consistent art to anyone and for that i am sorry.
but if you want, you can click this link to donate to my paypal ( email@example.com )
these donations will help me towards moving out in the future and having a safe place to stay or to give me something to fall back on if things get worse.
again i’m sorry but i’m feeling helpless and i don’t know how much more i can take. i truly appreciate your time if you read this or decide to give anything. thank you!!!
so what kind of theoretical tensile strength are we talkin about here because
