Quote reblogged from Rooted with 38 notes

Hospitals are not a panacea and can sometimes make things worse. While it is harder to kill yourself in a hospital than outside, it still happens. Someone who is kicked out of the hospital due to insurance or other policies may then kill themselves in the end. If the suicidal person is hospitalized, have a support team visit during and after hospitalization. Ideally, the person being hospitalized makes the decision to go; in many states, it is not possible to admit someone without their consent.

Don’t take the decision to hospitalize someone lightly. How bad can a few days or weeks or months in a psych ward be? Worse than jail? For some, yes. Inpatient hospitalization often inflicts physical and emotional abuse on patients, with scars and medical bills that can last a lifetime. Once hospitalized, many patients are sucked into a revolving door of psychiatric care as their personalities are dissected and pathologized under the gaze of the psychiatric magnifying glass. If possible, provide an alternative space to a hospital.

Quote reblogged from MamaAtheist with 1,085 notes

Our cultural attitudes are unconsciously shaped by our collective history as much as they are consciously shaped by our current context. When you consider the death penalty as a tool of racial control—a way for whites to “defend” themselves from blacks—then Pew’s poll results make sense. What we’re looking at is the inevitable result of that history expressed through public opinion, and influenced by racialized ideas on crime and criminality. If you’re still skeptical, consider this: In 2007, two researchers tried to gauge racial differences on capital punishment and assess how blacks and whites responded to arguments against the practice. Their core findings with black Americans weren’t a surprise—in general, blacks were receptive to any argument against the death penalty. Their findings with whites, on the other hand, were disturbing. Not only where whites immune to persuasion on the death penalty, but when researchers told them of the racial disparity—that blacks faced unfair treatment—many increased their support. It sounds glib, but if you needed a one-word answer to why whites are so supportive of the death penalty, “racism” isn’t a bad choice.

In the U.S., where ninety-six percent of the reported perpetrators of rape are white, eighty percent of the men in prison for rape are black.

96%wow just wow.

(via clairebearology) Not shocking being white men brought rape to the new world and still do it worldwide. (via bad-dominicana)

but someone please tell me how jim crow is over. please. and why the hell we don’t talk about this as an aspect of rape culture.

(via so-treu)

Let’s remember our herstories and histories: Rape only became a criminal act when white slave masters became afraid of relationships between black male slaves and white female masters. They needed a law that would make it so that a relationship between a black male and a white female could NEVER be adult and consensual even when it was. This, of course, only worked in the white woman’s favor. When the black male was being raped by the white female masters, ONLY the black male slave could be blamed (sound familiar?).

Before AND after that, though, whites continued to rape blacks, female AND male, with reckless abandon. And it was never considered a crime. At worst, it was considered an investment.

Go do some research and see how many white men have raped black women or men. And then research how many of those white rapists were brought to trial and convicted.

You won’t be astonished by what you find. And that’s a damn shame. In the main, rape is a crime when it’s perpetrated AGAINST the white body—especially if perpetrated BY a non-white body.

America is, down to its damned mitochondria, a rape culture.

Do you still need more proof of rape culture?

As Noam Chomsky once pointed out for Z Magazine, old media types from the institutional bodies like American Enterprise Institute tend to regurgitate the same ideas with a reliability that is equally impressive and infuriating. While assuring the public that rape is a terrible crime, writers like Caroline Kitchens and Heather McDonald of right-wing think tank The Manhattan Institute try to claim that feminists have blown this whole rape culture thing way out of proportion.

Apparently, many women disagree. On Tuesday there were more than 1 million responses on the #RapeCultureIsWhen hashtag started by a frustrated Zerlina Maxwell in response to these right-wing narratives.

It’s when your friends think that it’s something you did and regret and are just calling it rape when you were so intoxicated that your friend took advantage of you and told you not to tell anyone about it.
