Amazing Video Makes Our Rape Culture Very Obvious.

Trigger Warning: This video (and card) speaks about sexual assault and domestic violence.

CARE Norway team decided that it was time to remind us that 1 in 3 women world wide will experience physical or sexual violence in their lifetime. So they made this video that forces us to accept that we are the reason that sexual violence is so prevalent.
Because all those jokes that are "just jokes" leads to a mentality that is way more dangerous then a kid just looking for a few laughs.
Check out the video below of a girl speaking to her father; explaining that because she is a female, things will be a lot different then they were for him growing up.
My favorite line;"I will be born a girl. Please do everything you can so that that wont stay the greatest danger of them all."
So now I ask you, how many times have you been called a bitch, a whore, a slut? Or have heard someone called those names? Or have called someone that?
How many times has a girl been insulted and dehumanized because she rejected someone?
How many times have we been told to not get to drunk while our male counterparts need not worry about anything but how much money they have for drinks?
How many times have you heard a rape joke? How many times did people laugh at it?

"I can really be a bitch sometimes."

Because of the way these words are thrown so casually after a rejection, we girls start to believe it. We start to doubt our feelings, believe the insults, worry that we aren't "being to outspoken," since since the dawn of time women have been told to keep their mouths shut.
Constant insults after the word "no" trains us to believe we are in the wrong.
Accepting rape jokes makes people believe that sexual assault isn't a big deal; that it can be brushed off with a laugh or an awkward chuckle.
So for the love of god, next time you hear a rape joe, don't laugh. Because like she said, there is some truth behind every joke. And every time you accept behavior like that, you are making the rape culture we live in stronger, and putting women's lives more at risk.

@ThiaLightleaf I totally agree that men get raped as well. I never said his didn't happen and I also never said that all men rape or sexual assault. However just because it does happen to men as well doesn't mean that should negate the rather overwhelming problem of sexual aggression that occurs to every female at some point in their life be it cat calling, lude gestures, rape jokes or threats, sex (or anything in between) when they are to drunk to consent or rape.
I was about to make a card on this. But also put my perspective on how raising a son you should instill some true basic beliefs, and morals to help prevent rape. Maybe I still should. it shouldn't just fall on raising your daughter or just the father.
This actually made me cry. This needs to be spread like wildfire. Especially at my school. People day things that are VERY offensive and I can't tell you how many times my butt has been grabbed by guys.
I agree with randysqwishy23, that we cannot solely blame men for our rape culture because a lot of women perpetuate this culture as well. I know a lot of girls who aggressively call each other whores and sluts and don't have a second thought about it.
you see im just going to assume the person who made this is a joke. now here is why: in your post it talks about women getting abused sexually and has a remark about needing feminism. yet feminism demands equality, and yet your only talking about it happening to women. talk about how it happens to more then just women HOW IT CAN HAPPEN TO ANYONE. it does happen to guys as well. unless people like you start to actually do everything equally regardless of gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, etc. then feminism will not begin to progress. it will literally just make those that dont support it hate it, and that will breed more and more hate. i understand it happens to girls and that really fucking sucks, but it also happens to guys, and do you know what? that really fucking sucks too. also guys arent the only ones that rape. girls do it too. rape is horrible but anyone who just advocates about girls being raped or just about guys being raped is a joke because youre only telling half the story.

Loveseat là gì?
Nói một cách đơn giản, Loveseat là ghế sofa dành cho 2 người ngồi. Tuy nó có cái tên nghe lãng mạn, nhưng mục đích thiết kế ban đầu của ghế chỉ là nơi ngồi nói chuyện giao tiếp xã hội, chứ không dành cho những người yêu ngồi bên nhau để tán tỉnh và đụng chạm. Lịch sử của ghế Loveseat Loveseat là một thuật ngữ rất thông dụng trong triều đại của vua Louis XV, nước Pháp và nữ hoàng Ann, nước Anh trong những năm 1700. Không ai biết chính xác người nào đã sáng chế loại ghế này. Nhưng ghế loveseat đầu tiên không dành cho những người yêu nhau, hay có mục đích tán tỉnh. Ghế loveset chỉ đơn giản là dành cho các quí cô ngồi xuống nói chuyện, và trau chuốt những bộ đầm xòe to của chính họ. Một phiên bản khác của ghế Loveseat: Tete-a-Tete Lấy từ tiếng Pháp, Tête-à-Tête có nghĩa là "đầu đối đầu". Ghế được sản xuất từ nước Pháp thế kỷ 19, sau đó được lan truyền và sử dụng rất phổ biến dưới thời Victorian tại nước Anh. Tete-a-Tete là kiểu ghế đôi có thiết kế kiểu dáng chữ S, và luôn có tay vịn nằm giữa. Ghế cũng dành cho hai người ngồi bên nhau nhưng góc nhìn của người ngồi có hướng khác nhau. Ưu điểm của thiết kế của loại ghế này là giúp hai người ngồi nói chuyện gần nhau thân mật nhưng không gây đụng chạm. Loveseat ngày nay Khi ngành điện ảnh phát triển, loveseat được sử dụng trong các rạp chiếu phim. Đặc biệt là nó được gỡ bỏ tay vịn để hai người ngồi bên nhau thân mật khi xem phim chung. Ngày nay, loveseat hay ghế đôi thường chỉ sử dụng trong nhà có diện tích nhỏ, hay các căn hộ chung cư. C&G Architects Công ty thiết kế nội thất chung cư Website: https://cgarchitects.vn

Game-changing Amazon Advertising Tips
Looking for ways to improve the advertising side of your Amazon business? If done right, Amazon advertising can help your product reach its target audience and drive more sales. Read on to determine the best ways to approach advertising on Amazon. Let’s get started. #1 Build brand awareness with Amazon Sponsored Brands Amazon Sponsored Brands, also referred to as headline search ads, is the key to driving more sales. These ads appear above the search results page on Amazon and help sellers build brand awareness. This is, especially beneficially for sellers who are selling multiple products in the marketplace. If you want to experience top-of-the-funnel Amazon advertising, particularly when paired with branded searches or category keywords, Sponsored Brands are ideal to go with. This gives you the opportunity to build brand recognition by incorporating entities like your ASINs, brand logo, and custom headline. #2 Have a flexible ACoS goal When it comes to Advertising Cost of Sale, the lower, the better. However, lower ACoS is not what you should be aiming for. The Advertising Cost of Sale can be explained as the ratio of your ‘ad spend’ to ‘revenue.’ For automatic targeting, Advertising Cost of Sale is at the group level, whereas for manual targeting, you get your Advertising Cost of Sale on a product level. Although low ACoS is preferred, your ad campaign should have an objective depending on whether you are trying to make ongoing profits from the product, liquidating a product, or launching a new product. For best-selling products, your main objective should be lower advertising costs. If your product is already popular among the buyers, they can easily find your product without the need for an advertisement. However, it totally changes if you are launching a new product. The ACoS should be higher (at least in the short term) for new product launches. It is useful for earning reviews and gaining traction. #3 Use the best PPC automation tool for better revenue When it comes to Amazon PPC advertising, it is a bit complex than you might think. Being an Amazon seller, especially the new one, you need additional resources to manage your PPC advertising. Your ad campaigns could be more valuable if you have an external automation tool helping you complete the important tasks rather than trying to manage your PPC ads and Amazon business at the same time. This is where SmartPPC tool comes into play. It is an Amazon PPC ad management tool that can optimize and customize your ad campaign structures. It collects, analyzes, and learns from your previous PPC ad campaign data and performs a comprehensive diagnosis. The best part, it comes with Automatic Keyword Sorting functionality that allows sellers and advertisers only to run profitable keywords and remove those that are irrelevant. #4 Make use of the Flywheel Effect While it has not reached its prominence yet, the Flywheel effect could become “the Amazon marketing strategy” for years to come. Created by Jeff Bezos, it has contributed to the success of the Amazon business model. In simple terms, the Flywheel Effect is the idea of using paid ads for generating earned media, which drives the overall growth. Paid media and earned media incorporate orders, detail page views, and reviews. On the other hand, your product content is known as ‘owned media.’ When you are implementing your ad strategy based on the Flywheel Effect, you need to ensure avoiding common mistakes of determining success based on the Advertising Cost of Sale. You need to look at the gross profit and total revenue, as well. It works in a way that when paid ads drive traffic to your listing, it will boost your product’s position on the organic search results. The increased traffic and a decent position in the Amazon organic search results page will likely increase your product’s chances of earning the “Amazon’s Choice” title. Once your product earns this designation, it will gain more attention from customers that ultimately results in more traffic. This is a continuous cycle, hence, known as the Virtuous Cycle Model. #5 Emphasize on product-level profitability Before introducing Amazon PPC into the mix, you need to understand your gross profit on a product level. Individual SKUs (stock keeping unit) boast different profit margins. Thus, it would be vital to look at more granular data. This data will give you insight on which one of your products will benefit most from PPC ads. This not only minimizes your risk but increases your profitability as well. You need to examine the product-level profitability in order to determine the products with the lowest and highest margins. There is no point in spending money on ads that you don’t know will be beneficial or not. This is a great practice followed by many successful sellers and advertisers. You will save a lot of money doing this. #6 Exclude negative keywords for reducing wasteful ad spend In order to make sure that you don’t rank for wrong search terms, you need to exclude irrelevant keywords from a larger keyword search. For example, suppose you sell $20 watches. That means you would want to rank for ‘watches’ and not ‘Tissot watches.’ In this case, ‘Tissot’ is a negative keyword. It can be a bit overwhelming when deciding what keywords are negative. The best way to start is looking for keywords that get a large volume of traffic but low conversions. If you do not exclude the negative keywords, you will be paying for the clicks that don’t convert into actual sales. In other words, you will be wasting money. However, it is not easy to determine what customers are looking for. But with the help of some Amazon seller tools, you can filter out your specific audience. Excluding negative keywords will prevent your Amazon PPC ads from showing in the searches that don’t drive conversions. Conclusion It is all about using the right strategies. Whether you are experienced or not, you need to do proper research and analyze your strategies before implementing them. Always use quality and trusted Amazon seller tools like SellerMotor for performing different tasks. If you want to know more about Amazon advertising, feel free to contact us.

How to Quit Smoking: 7 Best Ways According to Scientists
According to researchers, those who decide to quit smoking make up to 30 attempts Estimating the number of quit attempts it takes to quit smoking successfully in a longitudinal cohort of smokers before they succeed. This is due to the difficulties of abandoning bad habits in general, as well as with the individual characteristics of the body. The method that worked for five of your friends can misfire you. And vice versa: you can come up with your own way to tie up a smoke that categorically does not suit your friends, but it turns out to be incredibly effective specifically in your case. These 7 ways to quit smoking have proven both statistically and scientifically. Try to find yours among them. 1. Set a date to prepare Image - Source It is from this that experts recommend start a personal fight against smoking. And there are reasons for that. Most smokers have decided at least once in their lives: “Everything, from tomorrow - not a single puff!” Of course, they kept their word. Up to the first nervous shake or moment of oblivion. “Oh, I'm with a cigarette, I don’t even know how it happened ...” The problem is that smoking is not only physiological, but also psychological dependence. You may not be aware of this, but a cigarette is closely associated with significant, vital things. For example, the ability to exhale in the midst of a nervous working day. Discuss in the smoking room what cannot be discussed in the office. Talk on the phone with your loved one. Drink a cup of coffee without thinking about anything - just "sticking" into the landscape around. If you quit smoking on the same day, a gaping hole forms in the place of these significant pleasures. Everything seems to be OK, a cup of coffee in hand, but something is missing. And this deficit spoils all the pleasure. Or a little different: before a smoke break was an opportunity to take a pause relatively legally, but now you do not smoke, which means that there is no reason for a pause. And so you continue to work without interruption, exhausting the nervous system and driving yourself into a state of permanent fatigue . It is not surprising that your subconscious mind will try to return a saving cigarette, which is associated with relaxation and pleasure. And it will return, believe me. Therefore, quitting smoking from tomorrow is a controversial option. It’s better to set an exact date. Not too close to get ready, and not too far not to change your mind. The preparation is as follows. You need to untie smoking from everyday relaxation and pleasure. If you are used to combining a cup of coffee with a cigarette - drink, but without a cigarette. Promise yourself: “I will drink coffee now, and have a smoke in 15 minutes” - and keep the promise. If you need informal communication with colleagues, go for it without a cigarette, again promising yourself a smoke break some time later. When day X comes in the end, your withdrawal from quitting a cigarette will not be so strong, because at least psychologically you will be prepared for it. 2. Record triggers and exclude them from life Image - Source This recommendation is partly related to the paragraph above. The bottom line is that often we could not smoke. But there are situations that directly make us reach for the pack. These are the so-called triggers. Calculate them: for several days carefully describe all the moments when you lit a cigarette. "I drink morning coffee." "I lit up to talk with a girl." "I went out with my colleagues into the yard, I smoke for the company." Then try to modify at least those situations that are repeated day by day. For example, if you are used to smoking a cigarette with morning coffee, start drinking tea. Or go to healthy breakfasts : you hardly want to smoke with oatmeal. Try to develop a replacement strategy for each of the detected triggers. You will not get rid of the addiction right away, but you can significantly reduce the amount of nicotine. And this is a serious step towards success. 3. Replace smoking with other pleasures or employment Image - Source Perfect time to quit smoking - vacation. There are no stresses provoking to reach for a cigarette. Interesting activities are full. It’s enough not to take cigarettes with you to the rafting along a rough mountain river or go on a bus tour in Europe, where no one will brake or air the Louvre to give you the opportunity to smoke, and you will be surprised to find that you can easily do without smoke for several rich and interesting days. The main thing here is to draw the awareness from such an experience: “I do not smoke because I want, but because I am just bored and have nothing to occupy myself with.” Sounds so-so, right? Try to get rid of boredom. Look for activities that could replace cigarettes. And you quit smoking. 4. Go in for sports Image - source If we talk about substitution therapy, then exercise is one of the most healthy options. Studies show, sports activities distract from thoughts about cigarettes, cheer up and give a sense of control over oneself. After working with the barbell or swimming a kilometer or two, you begin to feel like a strong, strong-willed person who can’t completely give up on the teeth for the sake of some kind of puff. 5. Decide how to overcome the impulse Image - Source The desire to smoke most often occurs spontaneously. First, we grab a cigarette on emotions, drag ourselves on, and only then the brain yells: “What are you doing, we promised!” And it's too late. Therefore, it is extremely important to maintain a short pause between “Oh, how I want to smoke” and the click of a lighter. This pause is really small. Experts assure that an acute desire to grab a cigarette lasts no more than 3-5 minutes. Think about how you can fill this time - and try to bring this action to an automatic level. For example, pulled to nicotine - push up several times. Or a minute we stand at the bar. Or chew a hard apple. Or bite a toothpick. Or just open the window and take a few deep breaths. Any option is suitable, if only the pause placeholder was stably at hand at the right time. 6. Connect social networks Image - Source It sounds funny, but those smokers who talk about the course of their struggle with a bad habit in social networks are successful significantly more often than those who try to fight cigarette cravings offline. Thanks to Facebook or Twitter, other people seem to support you. In addition, social networks are full of motivating stories of those who have already started smoking. And the more we get to know other people's successful cases, the more we believe in our own victory. 7. Increase the content of vegetables and fruits in the diet Image - source A study conducted by scientists from the University of Buffalo (USA), proved: the more vegetables and fruits a person consumes, the easier it is for him to stop smoking. The point is that our brain often confuses cravings for tobacco with cravings for fiber. Having treated ourselves with a cabbage salad or a crispy apple, we are deceiving the body: it begins to seem to him that he has already received the desired, and therefore the cigarette seems to be irrelevant.
