“[TW: Rape Culture] Ignoring male rape not only neglects men, it also harms women by reinforcing a viewpoint that equates ‘female’ with ‘victim’, thus hampering our ability to see women as strong and empowered. In the same way, silence about male victims reinforces unhealthy expectations about men and their supposed invulnerability.”—The Rape of Men, from The Observer (via randomguy3)
Because my Grandmother is pure German, we carry on some German traditions. I get a mini Christmas on December 5th called St. Nicolaus Day. For those who don’t know, kids set out their shoes by the door and wake up to candy and small toys if they’ve been good. We also do things such as hid a pickle (that’s right, a pickle) ornament in the tree and the first kid who finds it gets an extra present. Sounds great right? Unless you also grew up with this guy…
This is the Krampus. He is supposed to come along with St. Nicolaus to punish bad children. We were raised with the idea that if we were bad, that thing would come beat us and take us with so he could eat us later. Germans are weird
Zack : How come you get to be all Buck Rogers, having sex in the 25th century with Twiki and Dr. Theopolis, and I’m stuck to a bottle of Jergen’s in the batroom? Miri: Holy Bejeesus, tell me you don’t use my Jergen’s to whack it. Zack : No, you know what I do? I light a bunch of candles, and I sprawl out on my sheets, and I listen to Sting. No, I’m a guy. You give me two Popsicle sticks and a rubber band and I’ll find a way to fuck it, like a filthy MacGuyver!
