“I have this strange feeling that I’m not myself anymore. It’s hard to put into words, but I guess it’s like I was fast asleep, and someone came, disassembled me, and hurriedly put me back together again. That sort of feeling.”

Haruki Murakami, Sputnik Sweetheart (via feellng)

Several studies have shown that portrayals of women enjoying rape and other kinds of sexual violence can lead to increased acceptance of rape myths in both males and females.

One group of college students were shown a pornographic depiction in which a woman was portrayed as sexually aroused by sexual violence, and a second group was exposed to control materials.

Subsequently, all subjects were shown a second rape portrayal.

The students who had been exposed to the pornographic depiction of rape were significantly more likely than the students in the control group:

(1) to perceive the second rape victim as suffering less trauma; (2) to believe that she actually enjoyed it; and (3) to believe that women in general enjoy rape and forced sexual acts.

last story of the day (promise)

I went into town for coffee & lunch by myself as usual, and Mark Karasick (artist; exhibited at blackswanarts where I volunteer and above cafe; putting up next show which I’m v excited to see) was there with his youngest daughter - he’s so nice and asks how I am/uni is going when he sees me - and today invited me to join them (offered me some of his chips too), then was showing me these cute phone photos of his daughter (she’s sweet and really gorgeous). It was so embarrassing dad cute. He also said if I wanted I could email him some photos of my work for him to comment on. 

Chris Bucklow (painter, lives local, etc) always says hello to me in town too. Sometimes I feel cool.
