If you need a bit of stress relief today, I’d highly recommend giving this a watch.
Young men need to be socialized in such a way that rape is as unthinkable to them as cannibalism.

Fun fact: Canada launched the “Don’t Be That Guy” rape prevention campaign targeted at potential rapists rather than potential victims was launched… and the number of reported sexual assaults fell by 10 per cent. within that year. Rape prevention NEEDS to start with education and focus on the perpetrators, not just policing the behavior of potential victims.
There’s this guy I used to know when we were kids. Literal bad boy turned good. Every few years he shows up in some random place I’d never expect. Last time I saw him I was graduating university, taking pictures with my folks, and he walked up to say Hi and ask how I was doing. I haven’t seen him since then, but I wonder sometimes if something could have happened between us had the stars aligned properly. It may forever remain one of life’s great mysteries.

Thank you to the gentleman in the grocery store tonight who held a red pepper up to his ear and announced “I’m on a hot line, ya know.”
I really needed that laugh today.
Need I say more.
