RAINN (Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network) is America’s largest and most influential anti-sexual violence organization. It’s the leading voice for sexual assault victim advocacy. Indeed, rape culture activists routinely cite the authority of RAINN to make their case. But in RAINN’s recent recommendations to the White House Task Force to Protect Students from Sexual Assault, it repudiates the rhetoric of the anti “rape culture” movement:
In the last few years, there has been an unfortunate trend towards blaming “rape culture” for the extensive problem of sexual violence on campus. While it is helpful to point out the systemic barriers to addressing the problem, it is important not to lose sight of a simple fact: Rape is caused not by cultural factors but by the conscious decisions, of a small percentage of the community, to commit a violent crime.
Much as I love being the guy who says "I told you so", but being as I have lost a few dear friends over this argument over the past few years, saying it wouldn't bring me any joy either. :(

Today I had to make a hard decision. It was a long time coming, and I saw it happening, but it doesn't make it any easier.

Just because we stop being friends doesn't mean we can't one day reconcile and resolve our differences.

Unless you lie about the situation and talk shit about me. Then it never resolves.

Because fuck you.

I'm very happy to see this. A friend purchased and mounted a print of one my my absolutely favourite photographs. It feels good.

"i treat friendship with a loyalty and allegiance that goes farther than a label. if i'm not really friends with people in real life, i'm think it's disingenuous to refer to them as such anywhere, nor no matter the media."

This quote comes from a discussion I was having with someone while ending our relationship.

I'm supposed to be really focused on what's in front of me. This means I'm need to fix the signal to noise ratio out here.

Time to prune.

How never more appropriate a name than one who was never seen without a grin, nor had a sharper tongue for love of story. I will cherish for ever your laugh, your tales, the way you embraced life, and all those who crossed your path with open arms and a hearty slap on the back.

You brought more joy to so many than anyone else I have ever met.

One day, I know this, I will meet you again, on the other side of those heavenly gates, and you will be waiting for me with the finest of wines, the richest of meals, a wonderful story, and a few hot goth girls.

Just like you would for me in this world, so shall you the next.

Once again, thank you. My one regret will never had I a chance to tell you. Nor will I ever be greeted with your smile once more.

"Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am the sparkle in the snow.
I am the shredded leaves that blow.
I am the sunlight on growing grain.
I am the gentle summer rain.
I am the quiet bird at night.
Circling about; Taking flight.
So do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there, I do not sleep."

And so God shall be amused hereforth by one serious fucking story teller. Say it true, and thank you kindly.
