A study done by one of the most well-regarded researchers in the field found that “high pornography consumption added significantly to the prediction of sexual aggression. - Vanessa Vega and Neil M. Malamuth, “Predicting Sexual Aggression: The Role of Pornography in the Context of General and Specific Risk Factors,” Aggressive Behavior, Volume 33 (2007): pp. 104–117.

A meta-analysis of 46 published research studies on the effects of pornography on sexual perpetration, attitudes regarding intimate relationships, and attitudes regarding the rape myth found that exposure to pornographic material puts one at increased risk for committing sexual offenses, experiencing difficulties in one’s intimate relationships, and accepting rape myths (i.e. beliefs that trivialize rape or blame the victim for the crime). Specifically, there is a 22% increase in sexual perpetration; a 20% increase in negative intimate relationships; and a 31% increase in believing rape myths. A total sample size of 12,323 people comprised the present meta-analysis. The studies confirmed the link between increased risk for negative development when exposed to pornography. - Elizabeth Oddone-Paolucci, Mark Genuis and Claudio Violato, The Changing Family and Child Development, (Aldershot: Ashgate, 2000), pp. 48-59.

Another meta-analysis examined 30 different studies with a total of 2,040 participants and concluded that exposure to pornography increases behavioral aggression. While there are many factors that influence this effect (for example, the content of the pornography viewed), the researchers conclude that a connection between exposure to pornography and subsequent behavioral aggression exists. - M. Allen, D. D’Alessio, and K. Brezgel, “A Meta-Analysis Summarizing the Effects of Pornography II,” Human Communication Research, Vol. 22, Number 2 (December, 1995): pp. 258-283.

The relationship between frequent pornography consumption and sexually aggressive behavior is especially strong for those with the highest “predisposing” risk level for sexual aggression. Those who are at high risk for sexual aggression and who frequently consume pornography have sexual aggression levels that are four times higher than those who do not consume pornography frequently. - Neil Malamuth, T. Addison, and J. Koss, “Pornography and Sexual Aggression:Are there Reliable Effects and Can We Understand Them?” Annual Review of Sex Research, Vol. 11 (2000): pp. 26-94.

Based both on the lab research and interviews with women, Dr. Diana Russell has argued that pornography is a causal factor in the way that it can:(1) predispose some males to desire rape or intensify this desire; (2) undermine some males’ internal inhibitions against acting out rape desires; (3) undermine some males’ social inhibitions against acting out rape desires; and (4) undermine some potential victims’ abilities to avoid or resist rape. - D. E. H. Russell, Dangerous relationships: Pornography, misogyny, and rape (Thousand Oaks, CA: Sage, 1998), p. 121.

Robert Jensen, based on interviews with pornography users and sex offenders, and the work of other researchers, concludes that pornography can: (1) be an important factor in shaping a male-dominant view of sexuality; (2) be used to initiate victims and break down their resistance to unwanted sexual activity; (3) contribute to a user’s difficulty in separating sexual fantasy and reality; and (4) provide a training manual for abusers. - Gail Dines and Robert Jensen, “Pornography and Media: Toward a more critical analysis,” in Sexualities: Identity, behavior, and society, ed. M. S. Kimmel and R. F. Plante, (New York: Oxford University Press, 2004).

A survey of women leaving abusive male partners found that 75% were shown pornography and asked or forced to enact scenes from it; 64% had pornography described to them and were asked or forced to replicate the acts; 31% had been asked to pose for pornographic pictures, and 81% had been raped. “The study found a strong association between men’s use of violent pornography and the physical abuse of women.” - E. Carmer, L. McFarlane, B. Parker, K. Soeken, C. Silva, and S. Reel. “Violent pornography and the abuse of women: Theory to practice,” Violence and Victims, Volume 13, Number 4 (1998): pp. 319-332.

A wild slushie in its native habitat.
The flavored ice occurs naturally off the coast of Greenland. A common slushie will fill about 50,000 cups once butchered and distributed to slushie machines.
Slushies are in no danger of going extinct, but there is a question of cruelty as the common procedure to capture the slushie involves a harpoon, two tasers and a drill sergeant who shouts insults to distract the beast..

oh hell no i did not resurrect for this

jesus after watching the last game of thrones episode probably (via queencersei)

houselannisters:

Yes because jaime would totally rape cersei

the jaime that  felt sick at the sound of hearing rhaella targaryen raped

the jaime that also felt sick after he heard of ellia and her babies being brutally murdered

THE JAIME THAT GOT HIS HAND CUT OFF SAVING HIS FRIEND FROM BEING RAPED

THE JAIME THAT SAID HE WOULD RATHER DIE IF HE WAS A WOMAN THAN LET SOMEONE RAPE HIM

THAT JAIME

starkraving-mad:

There’s something seriously wrong when a tv network believes that it’s audience would rather see Jaime Lannister rape Cersei instead of enjoying consensual sex with the woman he loves. HBO’s insistence on adding extra violence towards women in the series is truly disgusting.
