I literally don’t have enough healthy coping mechanisms to deal with the internet why am I even on here.
I need help for a class! I know I’ve liked a post on here that was a study about alcohol effect in cases of rape, and stated that alcohol is not the main influencer of whether or not a person will rape another because the intent is already present. As I have around 28,000 likes, it will be impossible to find the study.
Can anyone help me out / point me in the direction that I might be able to find it again?
Not sure which post you’re talking about, but there’s an article that states that alcohol may not influence who commits sexual assualt, but rather when sexually aggressive men commit acts of assault.

John Maler Collier, c. 1898
“There were always in me, two women at least, one woman desperate and bewildered, who felt she was drowning and another who would leap into a scene, as upon a stage, conceal her true emotions because they were weaknesses, helplessness, despair, and present to the world only a smile, an eagerness, curiosity, enthusiasm, interest.”
― Anaïs Nin
All I’ve ever wanted for my birthday is for my boobs to finally fill out.
“But you’re not fat, don’t say that,” he responded.
Tell that to the hips that got caught in a turnstile yesterday and everyday that she forgets to turn sideways. Tell that to the stores that stop at size 12 (or size 10 if she wanted to look her age). Tell that to the small woman rolling her eyes beside me on the subway as my booty spills over into her seat. Tell that to the holes my inner thighs have rubbed into every pair of jeans I own. Tell that to the rolls on my back & the crevices in my ass.
Tell that to the silence at the end of your sentence that should say “because fat people are ugly, because if I think you’re attractive you can’t be fat because I’m saving fat to degrade a woman two sizes smaller than you but with a flatter chest & a spare tire. Because you’re not fat is a compliment even when it’s not true because what I’m really saying is you don’t repulse me the way fat people are supposed to repulse me. Because I get final say on your body, not you & I’m giving you a pass for the same dimpled ass I laughed at on another woman yesterday because your waistline is smaller than hers and a normal woman would just be happy with that.” — - On Being A Fat Girl (via marfmellow)
Gustave Doré, Crossing the Styx, 1861
April is the cruelest month, breeding
lilacs out of the dead land, mixing
memory and desire, stirring
dull roots with spring rain. — T.S. Eliot, The Waste Land (via yeshecholwa)

Anxiety is secretive. He does not trust anyone, not even his friends, Worry, Terror, Doubt and Panic… He likes to visit me late at night when I am alone and exhausted. I have never slept with him, but he kissed me on the forehead once, and I had a headache for two years… — J. Ruth Gendler (via creatingaquietmind)
