Thank you Republicans. You said it and then proceeded to do everything you could to make it true.
seriously you are still on the blame all bad things on republicans roll? really??
Benghazi: Even The Republican chairman (Not Issa) could find any wrong doing.
VA: Who voted against this?
Illegal Immigration: Who sued the President for “Misusing” Exec Order, then demanded he use Exec orders to resolve it on his own?
Taliban Trade: What was any different than has been done many times before?
Fast and Furious: Started under Bush Admin.
Debt, Lowest Deficit since CLINTON.
Keystone: The Koch Bros Money Machine.
Obamacare: Sorry that Republicans hate medical care for people, suck it up.

When I was at Tulane University, girls were warned about the “bad” fraternities: the ones that spiked the punch at parties with Everclear and maybe drugs, the kind of frats where girls got hurt. During my first week of class 18 years ago, rumours circulated about a girl on my floor who had been sexually assaulted by multiple men at a frat party. These issues were always discussed with a certain nonchalance – as if having at least one rapist around was an inevitable part of fraternity life.
Not much has changed.
University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee police are currently investigating a fraternityafter several women were found labeled with red and black X’s on their hands after they had to be hospitalized with memory lapses from intoxication at a fraternity party. Last year, three sexual assaults were reported at one Texas fraternity – within just one month. At Georgia Tech, a frat brother sent around an email guide called “Luring your rapebait”. Wesleyan had a frat that was nicknamed the “Rape Factory”. In 2010, fraternity brothers at Yale Universitymarched through campus yelling, “No means yes, yes means anal.”
These are not anomalies or bad apples: numerous studies have found that men who join fraternities are three times more likely to rape, that women in sororities are 74% more likely to experience rape than other college women, and that one in five women will be sexually assaulted in four years away at school. So it seems only natural to ask: With all of the current efforts, from the White House to college towns, to curb campus sexual assault – using “yes means yes” as a standard for consent, holding administrators accountable, touting bystander intervention – why haven’t we addressed perhaps the most obvious solution?
It’s time to talk about banning fraternities.
maybe I’m just ignorant, but fraternities have always just seemed like a breeding ground for subhuman scumlords to me

"Some men feel that too much responsibility for preventing sexual assault has been put on their shoulders"
We’re telling you not to rape people and you think the bar’s never been higher

This is how the solar system is actually moving as it traverses the galaxy.
This gif makes it really difficult to care about anything. I mean. Literally nothing we do is important beyond our world. Damn.
