what if your phobias are based off how you died in a past life
Why is this not getting around faster
I WAS KILLED BY CATERPILLARS??!??!?!

This is one of my favorite quotes about sexualization/objectification vs autonomy of female bodies bc it’s so succinct
It is illegal for women to go topless in most cities, yet you can buy a magazine of a woman without her top on at any 7-11 store. So, you can sell breasts, but you cannot wear breasts, in America.

Reading about abusive men and the way they think. Very unsettling and an incredible book so far. Here are my very professional notes.
what book is this?
This is from “Why Does He DO That” by Lundy Bancroft.
I’m so glad I’m seeing more and more Lundy Bancroft quotes on my dash because this book CHANGES THE LIVES OF ABUSE VICTIMS.
The programs run for rehabilitating abusive men through the courts? Bancroft DESIGNED THEM. His programs are replicated ALL OVER THE WORLD.
He literally wrote THE book on abuser rehabilitation.
Here’s a link to a pdf copy. If you haven’t read this book yet, read this book.
Can we talk about how it seems like the entirety of the book is online on PDF, this making it accessible to anyone with an internet connection?
That is how we stop abuse.
We enable everyone to know what it looks like, so that when it happens, they can shut it down.
Arm yrself with knowledge!
Changed my life, would reccomend.
Reblogging for the PDF link.
Almost done with this book, it’s amazing. I’ll probably reblog it multiple times because it’s that important. There is stuff on abuse I’ve never heard people say, such as that the root cause is entitlement and misogyny, not substance abuse, a bad childhood, or a mean ex. Highly recommend, the pdf looks like a real e-book, and there is no jargon at all, the excerpt above is how the writing style is throughout.
If anyone has any questions on it, feel free to send an ask, I’d love for every follower to be able to read the book, or I’d be happy to make a list of everything that the writer says. That will take a bit of time, but if anyone wants that, I’ll start doing that :)
