If farmers and blacksmiths could win independence from an empire, if immigrants could leave behind everything they knew for a better life on our shores, if women could be dragged to jail for seeking the vote, if a generation could defeat a depression, and define greatness for all time, if a young preacher could lift us to the mountaintop with his righteous dream, and if proud Americans can be who they are and boldly stand at the altar with who they love… then surely… surely we can give everyone in this country a fair chance at that great American Dream.

Travelogue, a Film by Digi the Duck
I need feminism because my housemates recently had a party and mid-way through the night someone mentioned that my boobs were really big and that I should show them off to everyone.
I said “no” but was still pressured by all of my housemates AND a group of complete strangers to take my top off. I ended up having my shirt torn by one of the guys who thought it was his right to just rip my shirt off me in order to get a look at my breasts. I ended up feeling so threatened and alone (nobody stuck up for me) that I ran to my room and locked the door.
Nobody saw anything wrong with this. Not even my housemates (who I have lived with for over a year no). I was nearly sexually assaulted, but I was the one made to feel bad because I “disappointed” the guys who were there.
To visualize the ‘Serco Group’ just picture ‘cartoonishly-evil-corporation’.
