the white house released this video on sexual assault that actually targets men, telling them not to rape, rather than telling women not to be raped. please watch this.
This is so fucking important, that I can’t even start to describe the happiness I get from finally seeing a major world government making a video that doesn’t tell women to not get raped, but instead tells men to not rape & to stop rape in the first place.
This right now, should be across Tumblr like a wildfire. It should be trending on Twitter and Facebook. This is good news. This is great news. This is, for once, a positive step towards educating people on a fucking huge scale about sexual assault.
This isn’t a solution. Rape culture isn’t gone. We can’t all just stand around and pat ourselves on the back saying, “We did it guys! We made the video! Job done.” - but for the first time in my memory, society is beginning to actively change its broken perspectives from the top level down. This is great. This is good news. This is a start.
This is fucking hope.
And they picked Daniel Craig for it. Good.

I’m extremely proud of my friends and how far they’ve come. It’s really amazing to have so many talented friends being so good at what they do, and watching them grow overtime. What difference three years makes.
