the “you live with your parents” insult is really flaccid because a metric shitton of cultures don’t see “leave the house forever” as some grandiose moment of liberation that’s so important to the development of a person that it has to happen as fast as possible. until i came to the USA i didn’t know a single person who was pressured by their parents to leave the house because they’re “too old to stay there” or whatever. in puerto rico it is really common to stay with your parents until they and you are both stable enough that you can leave. whaddaya know, there are cultures that don’t place a stigma on being poor or wanting to care for your family or needing your family to care for you for some other reason.

I’ve told people this for years: “Leaving the nest” when you’re 18, assuming it’s under safe and healthy circumstances, is a distinctively white middle class American ideal that doesn’t apply to much of the world, let alone much of America. If you have the chance to leave home of your own volition with the ability to support yourself, great, but most people don’t. We just don’t.

I need everyone to tag their Sam Pepper stuff NOW

Also, the gif set of him sexually harassing women has appeared about six times on my dash. I get people are trying to raise awareness but actually seeing him do that stuff is intensely triggering for me.

AND I don’t think you need to spread images of the victims going through such a shocking/alarming/terrifying experience. It would really suck if those women logged onto tumblr and found gifs of themselves being sexually harassed. Even if the gifs are meant to denounce Pepper’s actions.

I was recently sexually harassed on the street, and I’ve been trying not to think about it. I can’t even imagine what it’d be like to find video of that experience online, then finding gifs of it on tumblr (my safe space)—gifs with hundreds of notes.
