Still Not a Joke — Good Awareness Campaign From Just Detention International
What if your kid went to jail for trying pot, something that is very probable if your kid is black and living in a state like Texas. Does that mean they deserve to be raped? Does that mean that they should live in conditions that go against all human rights?
Most prison rapes are committed by prison staff. Even if you are heartless and do not care about the prisoners, remember that these prison staff rapists go home to their nice houses in the outside world. Remember that they are your neighbors, maybe they even have babysat your children. Remember that as long as some victims are dehumanized and ignored, many perpetrators will never be caught. And yes, these perpetrators do pose a threat to you and your family. Prison rape, rape in general, is everybody’s problem. And definitely not a fucking joke.
The idea that prisoners “deserve” to be raped is part of rape culture.
Rape is not a punishment. It can not be earned. It is a crime every single time, no matter what, no matter who the victim is.
No one deserves to be sexually assaulted in any way. NO ONE.

“Genuine equality means not treating everyone the same, but attending equally to everyone’s different needs.”
Eagleton, Terry, Why Marx Was Right (Yale University Press, 2011) p.5 (via fuckyeahdialectics)
And this is why I get pissed off when.. I talk about equality, and someone says “YOU WANT EVERYONE TO BE THE SAME”. No, that’s not how it works, and I’m sick of explaining it.
The people who react to steps towards a greater equality shouting about “TRUE EQUALITY” would see someone thrashing about in the water off the side of a ship, grab a life preserver, and carefully divide it into enough pieces for everyone present to have one.
Or more likely, simply hang onto the life preserver that they already had, under the logic that since it’s impossible to distribute the life preserver equally, it would be unfair to take it away, and that the person in the water isn’t being asked to give up anything.
Because let’s be honest, objections rooted in “true equality” are 90% about preserving the status quo.
