“Since we all came from a woman, got our name from a woman, and our game from a woman. I wonder why we take from our women, why we rape our women, do we hate our women? I think its time we killed for our women, be real to our women, try to heal our women, cuz if we dont we’ll have a race of babies that will hate the ladies, who make the babies. And since a man can’t make one he has no right to tell a woman when and where to create one.”
Facebook has many pages and groups which promote rape and make jokes about it. As survivors, friends, and family of survivors, we are not amused. In fact, we find it disgusting and have asked for them to be removed.
- Target: Facebook
- Sponsored by: Demanding the removal of all “Rape Like” pages on Facebook! group
With titles like “It’s not rape if you like it,” and “Screwing your girlfriend while she’s asleep,” and “Life is like rape, it’s horrible but you might as well try to enjoy it,” these pages promote brutality against women, men, transgendered, and interesexed people alike.
Facebook needs to remove these pages so that ignorant and mentally unstable individuals aren’t encouraged to act out on their depraved feelings and urges. These people need help—not a public forum to spout their dispicable jokes and stories.
Please stand with us to insist Facebook take these pages down!

if this video is not spread, this woman will die.
if this video is spread, there is a chance justice shall be served.
PLEASE WATCH THIS AND SHARE IF YOU CARE ABOUT YOUR COUNTRY. Do you know all those ads on TV telling you the Gulf Coast is safe? Do you know those BP commercials telling you they care about their employees, that they’ve cleaned up the spill? Well, here’s a video of a woman who was a one of the thousands of clean-up crew members…
Her body is now degenerating rapidly. She’s lost feeling in her right arm, and severe neurological/nerve damage is starting to cause uncontrollable facial twitching. Her fellow clean-up crew friends are dying. This is heartbreaking and will make you sick to your stomach, but we all need to demand the media and government and BP acknowledge the true horror of this situation. This is your opportunity to use the Internet (and Tumblr) to impact the world. Look at the Middle-East, and think how much more powerful we as Internet-users are in America because of our guaranteed access to these digital tools.
If EVERY person on Tumblr who saw this (yes, you) reblogged and posted it on facebook, it will become a huge, national news story.
Pro tip for comic book artists: No human being alive sits like that as a way of relaxing. This is beyond ridiculous.
Let’s examine the context of the image. Mary Jane is sitting on her couch, drinking coffee, wondering if Peter will be safe or perhaps wondering if he’ll ever give up crime fighting and settle down for a normal life. As I don’t know the complete context of whatever comic this is from, I cannot say what else she might be thinking.
Let’s examine the posture. She’s sitting in a way where her back is arched so her boobs are pushed out, followed by her arms squeezing them to make them look bigger. Even her legs are bent oddly as to suggest that at least one of those feet is going to fall asleep soon.
Look, I get it. Mary Jane is hot, but for Christ’s sake, this is why girls feel alienated from comics. This is not how a human lounges. This isn’t even how a human sits, looking worried or upset. This is how someone sits when they are trying to be sexy and even that is debatable as this pose looks really uncomfortable and unnatural. This is what we’re talking about when we say ‘male gaze’.
Also? It makes you look like a terrible artist when you do this. Let’s pretend sexism doesn’t exist for a moment. I wouldn’t give this image a pass because Mary Jane looks awful here. It’s really jarring to look at and it’s obvious eye candy in what seems like it’s supposed to be a serious image. If you want to be serious, be serious. If you want to draw cheesecake, draw cheesecake. You can’t have both.
I have feelings about comic art, okay?
Also her waist seems to be about a third the width of her shoulders and hips. Salma Hayek is around a .60 Waist-Hip ratio.
wow that pose definitely looks uncomfortable
Am I the only one who notices the weirdness of her wrists/hands too? This is just terrible.
Is that Rob Liefeld? Wouldn’t surprise me.
ilu guys but you need to arch your back too
God, I’d love it if that pose became a meme. XD
them picure responses lolol
They should totally make that a meme.
At first I was srs
Then I lol’d
