I realize that actors are amazing and theatre would be nothing without them, but can we show some appreciation to the people backstage? The designers, the directors, the shop hands, etc. All the people that come together to provide space and content for the actors to act with. Thank you for everything you do.

A couple of days ago something horrifying happened in my country. On the night of September 24th a sixteen-year-old girl named Anna Shatova was brutally gang-raped in Novosibirsk, Russia.
From what I know, Anna was drugged at a party where she’d come…
What you can also do on top of all this is not use the term “slut-shamed” because you just called a rape victim a slut…exactly it’s fucking disgusting
As far as I know, “slut shaming” is a wildly used common term which means “critisizing women who are sexually active” and I saw it being used in feminist communities. If you’re telling me that I used it inappropriately, please give me some proof, and I won’t do it again.
"slut" is a SLUR used against women who CHOOSE to be sexually active
there are two huge problems here:
1: IT IS A SLUR. You do not ever use a slur against someone, especially not without their permission, no matter how good your intentions are.
2: most importantly: this girl did not CHOOSE anything. being raped is not being sexually active. it is an act of violence against her. she was RAPED. and you’re calling her “sexually active” and a “slut” and you think this is somehow justified because you’ve seen people use the expression.
the expression itself wrong, and even if it weren’t, your usage is horrifically wrong
i also did some research on my own and now i understand why it was wrong and i’m deeply sorry because i absolutely didn’t mean for it to sound that way. But English isn’t my first language plus i never assumed that a word so wildly used may be offensive itself or in particular contexts (that’s the only reason i used it) I’m gonna edit the post, and thanks for calling me out!

Fun little trick I learned in therapy: validation. When someone is upset, don’t try to fix the problem, point out the cause, or tell them it could be worse. Just validate their emotions. Be like, ‘shit yeah man, that sucks. I’m sorry you’re going through that. I’m here for you.’ That’s literally all you have to do to make them feel better. Thank you and goodnight.

I hate when people ask questions during movies like do you not understand that the movie purposly doesn’t tell you things in order to build suspense
