Aah that second to last one!
Also, Weimaraners are freakin’ GORGEOUS dogs.
Let’s take a moment to talk about this. I mean, because first off, “Tell cars not to hit kids.” Well, yeah, we do that all the fucking time, idiot. Ever seen signs like these?
We have classes and signs and laws about it, and people are constantly reminded. So your argument only works if we put up signs everywhere reminding assholes not to rape. But you’d rather talk about how rape victims have it coming to them.
But the dumbest part of this crap? Roads exist for cars to drive on. Children need to be careful to cross the street because they’re entering into an environment that exists specifically for something that is dangerous to them. The only way this shit is a valid comparison is if you think that bars, parties, and the world in general exists specifically for men to have sex with women. And I gotta break it to the guys who support this stupidity- your dicks are not that important. So knock off this bullshit and stop excusing rapists.
this is indeed A+++ commentary, but as an historical side note, roads didn’t always exist for cars to drive on (obviously, since they predates cars by a few millennia) and the process by which they came to be - in the 20s in the US, I’m not quite sure elsewhere - was a matter of some public discussion. pedestrians, including children, were being killed in large numbers for the first time; the presence of cars was compared to mass child sacrifice. judges would throw out arguments that hurt pedestrians were at fault on the grounds that being a “reckless pedestrian” was just self-evidently nonsense as a concept. car companies had to wage a huge PR campaign to invent the idea of “jaywalking” and get it cemented into the public consciousness and law as an alternative to ideas like mechanically-enforced speed limits or banning cars from urban areas, which were treated as serious possibilities at the time
the analogy w sexual violence becomes interesting here again IMO because we’re used to thinking of “people incl pedestrians die in car accidents” as the most natural and apolitical sort of tragedy but no, even that has a history + politics
I’m so glad to see the younger generation waking up to this hypocrisy.
The homeowner at 22 one is killing me.
This meme makes me so angry because it’s so on-target.

A glove to find your way in 19th-century London
This amazing artifact came by in my Twitter feed today and it is too special not to share. It is a glove that was purchased in 1851 as a tourist souvenir at London’s Great Exhibition, which was attended by a variety of famous individuals, from Charles Darwin to Charlotte Brontë. The leather glove is special because it contains a map that shows the routes to Crystal Palace in Hyde Park, which was the main staging area for the exhibition. It appears to be made for a child, perhaps in case he lost his parents in the crowds. The glove is one of a variety of maps that was produced for the many visitors to the city. Another is this wonderful folding specimen printed on silk, which shows a great amount of detail (check out the enlargements). London in the palm of your hand: a functional memento from the time that the tourist industry was beginning to boom.
Pic: Kew, The National Archives, EXT 11/159 (c. 1851). This the source of the image; here and here is more information on the glove (the latter webpage, from the archive that keeps the artifact, suggests it was a kid’s glove). The glove features on various blogs, such as this one; I saw it in this tweet today.
