This is the rape joke:
My best friend was four years old the first time his father came into his room at midnight and tore out his throat. He still has days when I cannot hold him because the memory of a bleeding trachea haunts his doorway. He has not been home for the holidays in many years, but – even now – hands are seen as weapons.

This is the rape joke:
I have been told by more than twenty people that they have been raped. To all of them, I asked where the rapist was. From none of them, I heard ‘jail.’

This is the rape joke:
Once my brother told me that I was so ugly, I would be a virgin forever. Unless someone raped me. But even they wouldn’t come back for seconds.

This is the rape joke:
I believed him.

This is the rape joke:
I now look at every woman on the street and wonder if the space between her legs is a crime scene, surrounded by ripped caution tape. The statistics tell me that this is so common that I will never be in a room that does not contain a survivor. Not even if I am in that room alone.

This is the rape joke:
I was thirteen years old, and he was supposed to be just a friend.

This is the rape joke:
When his older brother came home, the boy pulled away. He wiped the tears from my face and said ‘we should do this again some time.’

This is the rape joke:
When I finally told my parents, they asked what I had been wearing.

This is the rape joke:
I had been wearing my innocence. My trust. I had worn the love I held for humanity and expected to be treated well. I had never been taught that I would be that girl, the one who keeps a mine of secrets between her legs – that girl was the slut. I wasn’t supposed to be breakable.
What had I been wearing? I wore the rape joke, then I became it.

This is the Rape Joke | d.a.s

Best thing I've read on tumblr.

  • Professor : You are a Christian, aren’t you, son?
  • Student : Yes, sir.
  • Professor: So, you believe in GOD?
  • Student : Absolutely, sir.
  • Professor : Is GOD good?
  • Student : Sure.
  • Professor: Is GOD all powerful?
  • Student : Yes.
  • Professor: My brother died of cancer even though he prayed to GOD to heal him. Most of us would attempt to help others who are ill. But GOD didn’t. How is this GOD good then? Hmm?
  • (Student was silent.)
  • Professor: You can’t answer, can you ? Let’s start again, young fella. Is GOD good?
  • Student : Yes.
  • Professor: Is satan good?
  • Student : No.
  • Professor: Where does satan come from?
  • Student : From … GOD …
  • Professor: That’s right. Tell me son, is there evil in this world?
  • Student : Yes.
  • Professor: Evil is everywhere, isn’t it ? And GOD did make everything. Correct?
  • Student : Yes
  • Professor: So who created evil ?
  • (Student did not answer.)
  • Professor: Is there sickness? Immorality? Hatred? Ugliness? All these terrible things exist in the world, don’t they?
  • Student : Yes, sir.
  • Professor: So, who created them ?
  • (Student had no answer.)
  • Professor: Science says you have 5 Senses you use to identify and observe the world around you. Tell me, son, have you ever seen GOD?
  • Student : No, sir.
  • Professor: Tell us if you have ever heard your GOD?
  • Student : No , sir.
  • Professor: Have you ever felt your GOD, tasted your GOD, smell your GOD? Have you ever had any sensory perception of GOD for that matter?
  • Student : No, sir. I’m afraid I haven’t.
  • Professor: Yet you still believe in Him?
  • Student : Yes.
  • Professor : According to Empirical, Testable, Demonstrable Protocol, Science says your GOD doesn’t exist. What do you say to that, son?
  • Student : Nothing. I only have my faith.
  • Professor: Yes, faith. And that is the problem Science has.
  • Student : Professor, is there such a thing as heat?
  • Professor: Yes.
  • Student : And is there such a thing as cold?
  • Professor: Yes.
  • Student : No, sir. There isn’t.
  • (The lecture theatre became very quiet with this turn of events.)
  • Student : Sir, you can have lots of heat, even more heat, superheat, mega heat, white heat, a little heat or no heat. But we don’t have anything called cold. We can hit 458 degrees below zero which is no heat, but we can’t go any further after that. There is no such thing as cold. Cold is only a word we use to describe the absence of heat. We cannot measure cold. Heat is energy. Cold is not the opposite of heat, sir, just the absence of it.
  • (There was pin-drop silence in the lecture theater.)
  • Student : What about darkness, Professor? Is there such a thing as darkness?
  • Professor: Yes. What is night if there isn’t darkness?
  • Student : You’re wrong again, sir. Darkness is the absence of something. You can have low light, normal light, bright light, flashing light. But if you have no light constantly, you have nothing and its called darkness, isn’t it? In reality, darkness isn’t. If it is, were you would be able to make darkness darker, wouldn’t you?
  • Professor: So what is the point you are making, young man?
  • Student : Sir, my point is your philosophical premise is flawed.
  • Professor: Flawed ? Can you explain how?
  • Student : Sir, you are working on the premise of duality. You argue there is life and then there is death, a good GOD and a bad GOD. You are viewing the concept of GOD as something finite, something we can measure. Sir, Science can’t even explain a thought. It uses electricity and magnetism, but has never seen, much less fully understood either one. To view death as the opposite of life is to be ignorant of the fact that death cannot exist as a substantive thing. Death is not the opposite of life: just the absence of it. Now tell me, Professor, do you teach your students that they evolved from a monkey?
  • Professor: If you are referring to the natural evolutionary process, yes, of course, I do.
  • Student : Have you ever observed evolution with your own eyes, sir?
  • (The Professor shook his head with a smile, beginning to realize where the argument was going.)
  • Student : Since no one has ever observed the process of evolution at work and cannot even prove that this process is an on-going endeavor. Are you not teaching your opinion, sir? Are you not a scientist but a preacher?
  • (The class was in uproar.)
  • Student : Is there anyone in the class who has ever seen the Professor’s brain?
  • (The class broke out into laughter.)
  • Student : Is there anyone here who has ever heard the Professor’s brain, felt it, touched or smelt it? No one appears to have done so. So, according to the established Rules of Empirical, Stable, Demonstrable Protocol, Science says that you have no brain, sir. With all due respect, sir, how do we then trust your lectures, sir?
  • (The room was silent. The Professor stared at the student, his face unfathomable.)
  • Professor: I guess you’ll have to take them on faith, son.
  • Student : That is it sir… Exactly ! The link between man and GOD is FAITH. That is all that keeps things alive and moving.
  • That student was Albert Einstein.
  • REBLOG BECAUSE REASONS.

Really, all you would have to do is push Castiel into the closet. Dean is already there.
