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.

………………………………..sigh.

Like you couldn’t get a Japanese girl to be on the cover of Vogue Japan’s anniversary…

Devon Aoki would have been a perfect choice. 

And a big fuck you to the Daily Mail for sexualizing Geishas.

Where are the white feminists?

oh right you’re silent, you’re always silent. 

Or Kiko Mizuhara or even Chiharu Okunagi? I’m pretty sure they have Japanese models out there, ANY one of them would’ve been perfect and it doesn’t even look right because she’s not Japanese

nyctaeus:

Damien Hirst, ‘A Thousand Years’, 1990, Glass, steel, silicone rubber, painted MDF, Insect-O-Cutor, cow’s head, blood, flies, maggots, metal dishes, cotton wool, sugar and water.
'A Thousand Years' is the first of Hirst’s works in which an arrangement of components is enclosed within a glass vitrine. Within its confines a life cycle is played out. Maggots hatch inside a minimal white box, develop into flies, then feed on severed cow’s head on the floor of the vitrine. Above, hatched flies circle around in the enclosed space. Many meet their end on an Insect-O-Cutor; others survive to continue the cycle. Hirst takes the principle of bringing real objects into the gallery a step further in this work, creating a literal enactment of birth, death and decay. While the glass vitrine alludes to the clean geometry of minimalism, it is filled  with the messy life and death of organic matter.

Animations of Saturn’s aurorae

Earth isn’t the only planet in the solar system with spectacular light shows. Both Jupiter and Saturn have magnetic fields much stronger than Earth’s. Auroras also have been observed on the surfaces of Venus, Mars and even on moons (e.g. Io, Europa, and Ganymede). The auroras on Saturn are created when solar wind particles are channeled into the planet’s magnetic field toward its poles, where they interact with electrically charged gas (plasma) in the upper atmosphere and emit light. Aurora features on Saturn can also be caused by electromagnetic waves generated when its moons move through the plasma that fills the planet’s magnetosphere.  The main source is the small moon Enceladus, which ejects water vapor from the geysers on its south pole, a portion of which is ionized. The interaction between Saturn’s magnetosphere and the solar wind generates bright oval aurorae around the planet’s poles observed in visible, infrared and ultraviolet light. The aurorae of Saturn are highly variable. Their location and brightness strongly depends on the Solar wind pressure: the aurorae become brighter and move closer to the poles when the Solar wind pressure increases.

My experiences with Lava on the Big Island of Hawaii.
Kilauea on the Big island of Hawaii is the most active volcano in the world, Pu’u O’o, specifically is the active vent off of Kilauea, which is actually on the world’s most massive slope, Mauna Loa. My home, which has been in Puna for since 1993, when my family relocated there from California, is currently facing great change as lava flow that began its current directional route on June 27 th, is approaching our local town of Pahoa and is projected to flow over the highway. There is only one other access road for thousands of residents to go around, if this happens. It is totally uncertain how long or how wide this flow will become and how long the community will be separated by the flow. Lava is totally unpredictable. Having been very up close to lava, watching it flow and ooze out, I can say with certainty that it is the most amazing thing besides childbirth, that I have ever witnessed. I have walked over still cooling, fairly fresh lava flows at at dawn and at dusk to view the lava in the darker hours, so as to see its glow. In the daylight you cannot see the glow as much, than at night. I remember walking over some areas of lava flow in which the cracks were still glowing red. The most memorable time was climbing dangerously down onto a brand new black sand beach to watch the lava pour into the ocean, watching it explode as it hit the water, instantly making sand. I’ve sat for quite a while next to lava flows, mesmerized by the movement, the crackling sound, and so close to it my skin was getting hot. Like I said, it’s very unpredictable. I’ve walked out to a lava flow and when I got up to it there wasn’t much happening, but I stayed near it for a while and then all of the sudden there would be a break out, and it would start oozing out of cracks or a chunk would break off and it would pour out.
So for the first time since 1990, the lava is flowing towards a more populated area in Puna and many people are not sure what they are going to do. Time will tell….only six weeks ago puna was slammed by a hurricane, first one to hit ever, and the community really pulled together to help each other out with the massive damage that caused.
There have been ongoing town meetings discussing possibilities and preventive measures: emergency access roads, access to supplies if people are cut off from town, the possibilities of being cut off from power. I have been away from my home and community in Puna for over four months now, traveling, so this all seems really incredible for me. I am staying as connected as I can be„being here in Australia. My thoughts go out to my family and friends there. First you weathered the storm….now you need to go with the flow…..and respect the fact that living on a live volcano means Lava…earthquakes….constant change. It’s an intense and beautiful place to be….but when your house in in the path of an approaching lava flow, there is nothing you can do but wait to see what happens (and grab your treasured belongings and get outta there!)
