I appreciate that this is put on OITNB images, because we need to talk a lot more all the time about the realities for women in prison.

Rape~ Rape is a topic that gets me really heated. I don't get why people blame the victim for being raped. A person should have their own self control to stop from raping someone once that person says no. In no way is it the victim's fault for this horrendous act. No means no.

Texas and Indiana must act to prevent prison rape It's too expensive to stop prison rape... refusing to follow federal guidelines for prison management shown to significantly reduce the likelihood of sexual assault against incarcerated people.

“Statistically, if you have told a rape joke to a group of more than five people, one of the people you told it to was a rape survivor, possibly of multiple rapes. They will not necessarily disclose this to you; rape apologism is endemic in society and most rape survivors are cautious about whom they tell." Also, there is a good chance too that you are telling that joke to an actual rapist, or someone who intends to rape, making them feel like it's okay to do what they do.

March 25, 1931: Nine black males who became known as the "Scottsboro Boys" were falsely charged with rape in Alabama. Over the course of 45 years and many re-trials, they were each pardoned from prison and declared (oops!) innocent.

Brock Turner has been placed in protective custody to keep him safe from other inmates. Ironic considering he raped a young woman behind a dumpster. If only his victim had the same protection he does. It's interesting that a judge wouldn't want to put a rapist in an environment that simulates how women feel all the time. http://weheartit.com/entry/244299250

As an inmate, I saw the way sexual assault is tacitly accepted as part of the punishment.
