Ghost In The Shell (1995)

"Maybe all full-replacement cyborgs like me start wondering this. That perhaps the real me died a long time ago, and I’m a replicant made with a cyborg body and computer brain.

Or maybe there never was a real ‘me’ to begin with.”

"You’ve got real brain matter in that titanium skull of yours. And you get treated like a real person, don’t you?"

"There’s no person who’s ever seen their own brain. I believe I exist based only on what my environment tells me."

"Don’t you believe in your own ghost?"

"And what if a computer brain could generate a ghost and harbour a soul?

..On what basis then do I believe in myself?”

Some fucker stole my bike tonight.  Really not happy about that, as one would imagine.  So unhappy, in fact, that I am writing about it on both here and Facebook.  Multi-platform anger.

I’m trying to handle this as graciously as I can, but dealing with a likely hopeless situation is never particularly easy.  You feel like there’s something you should be doing, but the reality is there isn’t much to do at all.  Just wait and see.

I hope justice finds this asshole sooner or later.  If not for me, then for someone else’s something else.  We aren’t supposed to be like this.

#dir en grey #kyo #fan art 
Here’s a Dir en grey poster I designed, hope you like it.  I’ve been wanting to make something based around Kyo’s skull face paint for a while now.

#henry cavill #superman #digital painting #my art 
Finally got around to finishing this.  I think there’s more that I could do with it, but, as an exercise purely focused on my own capacity to actually paint, I’m going to call it done.
Henry Cavill/Superman.

This whole thing is wrong.  
The “falsely accused” should be in the “reported” category”, as it is a subset. Of the “reported but not accused”, and “faced trial but not jailed”, at least some of those should also be included in the “falsely accused” group. This is like the recent problem in my stats class, where 200 adults were surveyed, and 110 drank coffee, 50 drank tea, and 90 drank cola.  The key is that there’s overlap in the groups, and this chart doesn’t represent that. 
Claiming that huge number as the number of rapists is purely speculation.  If only so many are reported, then what supports the claim that there are something like eight times that number that actually happen? 
The overall design of the chart is bad.  Since the category represented uses two units, and all other categories are divisible by two, it visually inflates the numbers, where a more accurate representation would show smaller groups.  Not factually wrong, but it plays off people’s perceptions, and show that the purpose of this is emotional influence rather than objective reporting.

Also, though the debunking states the false claims to be from 2-8%, there are a lot of studies showing it to be anywhere from 2-28%

leave it to tumblr to spread false bullshit while actual factual posts get little to no notes

There are so many things I want to say about this but I cannot fathom the words right now.  
This disgusts me.  Who does this?  Who is this manipulative and loathing that they would actually fabricate information about rape?  And for what?  The condemnation of men?  To prove the existence of “rape culture?”
This is fear mongering.  Pure and simple manipulation.  I would ignore this if I didn’t feel that its intentions were so dangerous.  
Take your feminism lightly, everyone.
