    What would you vote if you were a Scottish citizen? I am Scottish and Irish, heritage-wise. I actually know a lot more about my Scottish side of the family than the Irish, though I’m more Irish than Scottish. Regardless, my mother and aunts always noted that my Glasgow-born great-grandmother was proud of being a British person. I think she would have voted to stay with the UK. But when I watched this week’s episode of “Outlander” and was reminded of the disgusting treatment of Gaels, whether Scottish or Irish, by the English, it gets my ire up and I want to pound the fist on the table and say, “Screw it! Go for it! Alba gu br`ath!”

    My movies, I made them just with my friends, the way every kid today makes a movie with your cellphone. I just started out doing it and they were basically made to startle people with their own values. People who thought they were open minded, I wanted to make fun of their limits and play with the boundaries of whatever was correct at the time. We were always making fun of the peace and love movement—and even though I certainly looked like a a hippie, I was more of a yippie. I would go to riots, but not so much for the political thing, I would go to get laid. Riots were a great place to make a date, you could always find people at riots. So it was always great cruising at riots. I tried to take that the spirit and make fun of it and make fun of myself by calling my films trash. Critics couldn’t say they were trash because I already said it.

    11 ways to solve rape better than nail polish

    The more we depend on women to prevent rape, the easier it is to blame them when it happens to them. Here’s a look at the well-documented ways we can actually stop rape. Maybe it’s time we invest a little more time and resources into implementing them before we send gallons of nail polish to colleges across the country.

    Read the full list | Follow micdotcom

    And here’s the thing. I see so many people taking this the wrong way. They claim feminists are saying women shouldn’t learn defense techniques or find things that are useful in defending themselves, when the reality is we’re not saying that at all, we’re saying women are tired of only being told to do those things, while they are also receiving the blame of their assaults, as if they “asked” for it by somehow not fighting hard enough or not carrying a weapon or not having pepper spray, ect. This seriously happens all over the world and is ingrained in our culture. This is part of the reason why only 5% of rapists in the US will ever spend a single day in jail. This is why 1 in 6 women will be raped in her lifetime. This is a part of living in a rape culture.
    And so I don’t get messages from dudes telling me how I’m excluding them, yes, male rape is also part of rape culture. And it is serious. And the definition for vaginal encasement of a penis needs to be another definition of rape. And the idea that women cannot ever rape men needs to be eradicated. The biggest reason why that idea prevails though, is because people are still socially ingrained to automatically view women as weak, incapable of over powering a man. Sexual assault is a huge problem in this country, and worldwide. Rape and sexual assault is the MOST unreported crime. And there’s a reason for that.
