It turns out that if you ask the right questions in just the right way, some men will actually tell you that they're rapists. They'll just…admit it. The key is, don't use the word rape. Just ask them what they've done. Researchers asked 1,882 men: and: 120 answered yes. (That's rape.) 1,882 men… 120 rapists. They admitted to a total of 483 rapes and attempted rapes. 483! Whoa.

Reblogging because I mentioned this study in a post the other day and someone reblogged & replied insinuating that I’d made it up, but I didn’t have the citation on hand right then. As I said then: rape culture is what teaches rapists that they aren’t rapists.

a bunch of the plein air sketches I was working on during my Utah trip! A week drawing rocks, getting mistaken for a ranger twice- pretty ideal.

E / O / Z !!!

This is exciting. No one has ever responded to one of these before!

E: Easiest person to talk to?
I guess the easiest person to to talk to is my girlfriend Elizabeth, but my buddy Zach is a close second.

O: One wish?
I feel like I’m going to disappoint you with this answer, because I try to not make a habit of wishes. I would rather make it happen. But I guess I could make something happen overnight, I would love to be working in a studio space, with a bunch of natural light, doing freelance design and making zines and screen printing and just making art that I am truly proud off.

Z: Zodiac Sign?
I am the world’s most sensitive Aries.
