eta: Supreme Court Rolls Back Campaign Finance Restrictions, is what started the rage. This is a PDF of the full decision, with dissenting remarks by Judge Stevens.

I’m working on a (much longer) post about the US Supreme Court’s recent decision to abolish political campaign spending limitations for corporations, on the basis that the previous laws were violating the First Amendment (free speech) rights of said corporations. I think I’m going to title it:

I have not hated the Supreme Court this much since the mid- to late 1800s, or, DO NOT GIVE ME THAT 'FREEDOM OF SPEECH' BULLSHIT; PIECES OF PAPER DO NOT HAVE VOCAL CORDS, I AM QUITE SURE. )

Any comm they were apart of [even if they were not the only mod of the community] has been suspended without any explanation or notice." - here via [livejournal.com profile] murdering

Linked from [livejournal.com profile] jlarinda, from this post at Shakesville: Rape Culture 101:

"Rape culture is 1 in 6 women being sexually assaulted in their lifetimes. Rape culture is not even talking about the reality that many women are sexually assaulted multiple times in their lives. Rape culture is the way in which the constant threat of sexual assault affects women's daily movements. Rape culture is telling girls and women to be careful about what you wear, how you wear it, how you carry yourself, where you walk, when you walk there, with whom you walk, whom you trust, what you do, where you do it, with whom you do it, what you drink, how much you drink, whether you make eye contact, if you're alone, if you're with a stranger, if you're in a group, if you're in a group of strangers, if it's dark, if the area is unfamiliar, if you're carrying something, how you carry it, what kind of shoes you're wearing in case you have to run, what kind of purse you carry, what jewelry you wear, what time it is, what street it is, what environment it is, how many people you sleep with, what kind of people you sleep with, who your friends are, to whom you give your number, who's around when the delivery guy comes, to get an apartment where you can see who's at the door before they can see you, to check before you open the door to the delivery guy, to own a dog or a dog-sound-making machine, to get a roommate, to take self-defense, to always be alert always pay attention always watch your back always be aware of your surroundings and never let your guard down for a moment lest you be sexually assaulted and if you are and didn't follow all the rules it's your fault."
