Joan Rivers on the Ed Sullivan Show, 1967 (x)
HOW IN THE WORLD DID SHE TALK LIKE THIS BACK THEN AND END UP HOSTING A SHOW TEARING APART WHAT PEOPLE LOOK FOR A FRIGGING LIVING????
SHOCKED when I got to the bottom and saw “Joan Rivers”
You either die a hero, or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain.
I am this nervous around every person who enters the elevator with me. It doesn’t matter what your ethnicity and race is. I don’t trust anyone with my life. Does this make me a bad person?
No, so am I. I am also this nervous around people who are walking behind me, people whom I pass on the street, or people who wait at the bus stop with me.
I get what the gifset is trying to say: that black men are not going to savagely attack you, and I get that, but as a woman I have literally grown up with horror stories about being alone with a man.
It’s today’s society that dictates that a woman should be afraid of being alone with a man. That’s any man, I’m pretty sure the woman’s reaction in the gif set would be the same if a white man had stepped into the lift instead.
I was thinking the same thing.
It’s not because he is black.
It’s because he is a man and I am alone.
I was raised to fear the uncontrollable lustful men and try to never be alone with them. That was my responsibility and my duty as a woman.
I don’t cluth my purse to me because I might get robbed, but because the purse is another layer of imaginary protection between him and me.
freedom of speech means that the government is not allowed to tell you to shut the fuck up. it doesn’t mean that i am not allowed to tell you to shut the fuck up.

The most powerful thing anyone has ever said to me: “You deserve to take up space.”
it ok to not be ready
Please spread this shit like wildfire. People go on and sit through the whole experience and they’re uncomfortable because they just want to please their partner and they don’t tell them that they want to stop because they are not ready. It’s okay not to be ready.
notice here that consent is revoked without ever saying no and consent goes so far beyond yes/no!!!!!!
This comic is so simple and sweet and really hit close to home and I completely love this being brought to light. My first real relationship was awkward and difficult and hard. When anything sexual came up my consent was taken away from me by the idea that I had to please my partner and that I had to be ready when my partner was ready, when in reality I really wasn’t ready at all. But I forced myself anyway. I felt that I was wrong to feel that way. Guilt ruled over me and it was scary because I felt that I shouldn’t say anything. That I had to get over my fear and just do it, because my partner felt out of place that their friends all had sex and in turn, felt that they had to have sex in order to be a part of their group of friends. Which I felt pressured about.
What I’m saying is, IM SO GLAD THISS COMIC EXISTS. I FELT LIKE I WAS ALONE AND IM GLAD IM NOT.
I also wish things turned out this way. It’s really okay to not be ready.
