Regular users of pornography are less likely to convict for a rape, and less likely to give a harsh sentence to a rapist if in fact convicted. Conversely, individuals who do not use pornography are more likely to convict an accused rapist.

my uncle in the philippines has an avocado grove. last week it was particularly windy and he went outside to pick the fallen fruits and came back with this…! so, what i’m trying to say is: heaven exists, and it’s my uncle’s house.

I am 23 today. 5 years ago I thought by now I would have a kid or be pregnant, in a stable Job and shit. I am just getting started. Struggling with everything. Doubting myself, my self-esteem is probably at a low point and the only thing that is saving me is my ability to step back and put things into perspective. I am not sure if I have just been unlucky with how things turned out or if it was my own fault. I keep blaming external factors and for now that’s just about keeping me going. But today will be fun, I am spending it with some lovely people and it is so packed with activities I wont have time for anxiety or sadness.

Commander Vimes didn’t like the phrase ‘The innocent have nothing to fear’, believing the innocent had everything to fear, mostly from the guilty but in the longer term even more from those who say things like ‘The innocent have nothing to fear’.
