This is legit.
More PSAs need to stop worrying about offending people and get down to the nitty gritty like this. It’s the only way to open so many eyes.
If people are offended, they are probably guilty.
I totally need to show this to my dad, even though it is too late now and both me and my lil bro are grown up.

If that doesn’t horrify you, then I don’t know what would.
"Consensual sex" is just sex. To say that implies that there is such a thing as "non consensual sex", which there isn’t. That’s rape. That is what it needs to be called. There is only sex or rape. Do not teach people that rape is just another type of sex. They are two very separate events. You wouldn’t say "breathing swimming" and "non breathing swimming", you say swimming and drowning.

Oh my fucking god
And there will be people out there who read the headline and make “har har, yep, nothing more dangerous than an angry chick, amirite?” comments without realizing the irony.
Sexism on tumblr. I know your hearts are in the right place but still, this is bad.
Consider the fact that this is one of the few places on the internet where the population is largely women. It’s a safe space for many - especially young girls and women who are learning about themselves, about self-confidence and about feminism for the first time. If you log off tumblr, if you turn on your television or even go into any other part of the internet, misogyny is rampant. Women are being told that they can’t do this or shouldn’t do that, they are devalued as people, reduced to objects, that the feelings of men take precedent over their own, told that they are responsible for their own rape, etc etc you’ve heard it all before. Tumblr is one of the few places young women are learning to value themselves, often for the first time.
Also, three of the most popular tags under “women” are: women are humans, women are people, women are not objects - which are undoubtedly all responses to examples of being told the opposite. I went into a few of the men tags to see the content, and while there are some rants and text posts without context in there, the majority of those tags are filled with instances of misogyny in media, in real life, in personal experience, and their tags are in response to that. (For example, I think we’re allowed to say #men are the worst, #men are shit, etc on a post about rape culture, right? ) Which makes what you’ve proposed here false equivalency, and false equality.
I know that some men get their feelings hurt on tumblr, which can be unfortunate. But I think women should be allowed to have their spaces and feel good about themselves, learn to fight for their rights and that of others, to learn self-confidence and fight against internalized misogyny, in one of the only places that they can - without needing to consider or cater to the feelings of men. (Something they have to do regardless, every day of their lives, outside of tumblr)
literally the only worthwhile response I’ve seen on this post so far
A Lot Like Codependency Trailer (Wincest as a romcom)
Sam and Dean Winchester are used to being confused for a gay couple, and it honestly makes them laugh. Until it doesn’t. They’ll find themselves in a real predicament when their messy and twisted relationship makes a U turn somewhere along the road of their misadventures and becomes much more than just a brotherly relationship.
So it took me five days and a LOT of frustration tears, but I’ve personally never seen a wincest trailer before. Enjoy.
