Cool down art / pep talk

the complete set of posters, made by students at New College of Florida. 

Hey everyone—these were made by New College students last orientation (2013) to passively teach about consent on campus. 

Now that these are all over the interwebs, please “like” New College’s new sexual violence resource center, the SHARE Resource Center. SHARE stands for Sexual Health and Relationship Education—all of our future sexual violence prevention education programming will be coming out of here! Once the center opens, it will be open 24/7 and be available as a resource center for those in crisis, for their friends, and to learn about being an active bystander. 

Everyone should understand this.

Sometimes it just feels so amazing to finally stand up for yourself. I highly recommend it. Life is too short to be taken for granted.

Friday affirmations from former GLSEN Student Ambassadors! You are important — never forget it! 

When writing the story of your life, don’t let anyone else hold the pen.
Unknown (via onlinecounsellingcollege)
Being born a woman is an awful tragedy. Yes, my consuming desire to mingle with road crews, sailors and soldiers, bar room regulars—to be a part of a scene, anonymous, listening, recording—all is spoiled by the fact that I am a girl, a female always in danger of assault and battery. My consuming interest in men and their lives is often misconstrued as a desire to seduce them, or as an invitation to intimacy. Yet, God, I want to talk to everybody I can as deeply as I can. I want to be able to sleep in an open field, to travel west, to walk freely at night.

fuck every single time that last line gets quoted without the rest

i can’t tell you how many times i’ve spoken up about harassment only to be told to “learn to take a compliment”.  

since when do “compliments” intrude on my space?  what kind of “compliment” makes a person feel unsafe or threatened?

harassment isn’t a compliment.  know the difference.

Note to self: don’t let anything destroy you, especially yourself.
