Good article to look into: 
Not speaking up about rape jokes condones unequivocally bad behavior, demeans victims
Excerpt: 

Make no mistake, this isn’t a policing of your thoughts. You’re entitled to think whatever you like without fear of punishment. Your thoughts are your own business. What I’m asking is that you filter your speech a bit and not be so careless with your words…
'As a blog post from Men Speak Up says, “Virtually all rapists genuinely believe that all men rape, and other men just keep it hushed up better. And more, these people who really are rapists are constantly reaffirmed in their belief about the rest of mankind being rapists like them by things like rape jokes, that dismiss and normalize the idea of rape.’


so apparently this is going around Facebook and has like 1,000 notes already. I’m grateful to Everyday Feminism for sharing it since some of the issues the image collection covers are more serious than others, and this one is part of an overall larger, important cultural conversation we should be having about the safe spaces we make (or don’t make) for survivors.
I’m reblogging it again for anyone coming to my blog from there, because the Facebook link lacked the excerpt and link that back up the post.

Cap: Shouldn’t be a problem.

What I really love is that the movie doesn’t even bother to show them getting the wings. Like, pfft, whatever, infiltrating high securty places to steal experimental government technology, what is it Tuesday already? Nobody needs to see that, we have more important things to do.
