"Creepshot" Photos Are Now Legal in Texas

A Texas state law prohibiting people from taking photographs “with the intent to arouse or gratify the sexual desire of any person” if the person being photographed does not consent is unconstitutional, according to the state’s highest criminal court. Under this decision, so-called “creepshot” photos, where men often take photos of unconsenting women that they encounter on the street, are legal in Texas.

While we’re calling out youtubers with a large following who are total creeps, can we add Adrian Van Oyen to the list? He’s an Australian youtuber who legit made a video where he approached women naked, as in totally unclothed, and many of them were visibly distressed.
I know someone who was the victim of a pervert who chose to expose himself to her, and the dude went to jail. Because this is criminal behaviour. The video is age restricted, but it doesn’t change the fact that this is a disgusting example of sexual harassment. And completely illegal in Australia. 
I’ve been to the areas where he filmed this video, and it’s a family friendly park environment. I can only hope no children had to witness this asshat.
When he’s not taking a stroll sans clothing, he likes to use the phrase, ‘I’m just going to go for it,’ and kiss totally unsuspecting women without any consent. He has over a million subscribers and I hate to think about the influence this guy has, and he’s using it to do stupid crap like this. Can people please join me in reporting this guy? (You can find his channel here.)
(Also, heads up anyone from Brisbane, Australia. He likes to film in the City/Southbank, so keep an eye out.) 

yuck. for fucks sake men.

OH HELL NO.
THIS IS HAPPENING IN MY CITY, MY  HOMETOWN, NEAR MY HOUSE.
THIS IS HAPPENING IN A PUBLIC PARK THAT HAS MULTIPLE CHILDREN’S PLAYGROUNDS. IT’S A REALLY POPULAR PLACE FOR FAMILIES.
HE IS LITERALLY EXPOSING HIMSELF IN A PLAYGROUND AND THEN SEXUALLY ASSAULTING WOMEN.
THE WORSE PART IS PEOPLE CAN’T DEFEND THEMSELVES, YOU CAN’T ATTACK HIM OR RISK ARREST. USING STUFF LIKE PEPPER SPRAY IS ILLEGAL HERE AND YOU COULD GET INTO EVEN MORE TROUBLE.
FUCK EVERYONE DEFENDING THIS GUY.
PLEASE SIGNAL BOOST THE FUCK OUT OF THIS.

Wow okay.
Tumblr doesn’t send anymore asks if you send a “.” and a letter or word without a space right after it.

Example: H…hello (doesn’t send it) - H… hello (will send it)

It says it sends the ask but it doesn’t. My gf and I were trying since 2 days now and we just found out what the problem was.
Pass it on.

This explains SO MUCH GRRGHH

THERE IT IS OH MY GOD

❒ The amazing Chescaleigh has made a video poignantly highlighting issues of racism in the YouTube community.

She talks about the trend where comedy is used to justify harmful things. Delving deeper, she talks about how the usage (and acceptance) of black face and racial stereotypes…

Sexual harassment can happen between friends, relatives and even partners. And it’s never OK. Reblog if you agree!

Urgent new video: Sam Pepper Exposed

Here are the disturbing unheard stories happening behind closed doors, other YouTube offenders to watch out for, and what we can do about it.

for anyone who doesn’t know what’s been going on on youtube rn this is a pretty good breakdown. i know not everyone is a fan of laci green for a variety of reasons but a LOT of major youtubers have carefully avoided addressing this outside of twitter, so i think it’s important that someone with an audience this large is making a video that doesn’t beat around the bush, doesn’t mince words, and calls sam pepper out directly. this video does contain clips from videos of sam pepper and other youtubers harassing and assaulting women in the street, and descriptions of / links to accounts of sam pepper sexually assaulting fans, so be warned before you watch it.

rapeculturerealities:

 Gov. Jerry Brown announced Sunday that he has signed a bill that makes California the first in the nation to define when “yes means yes” and adopt requirements for colleges to follow when investigating sexual assault reports.

State lawmakers last month approved SB967 by Sen. Kevin de Leon, D-Los Angeles, as states and universities across the U.S. are under pressure to change how they handle rape allegations. Campus sexual assault victims and women’s advocacy groups delivered petitions to Brown’s office on Sept. 16 urging him to sign the bill.

De Leon has said the legislation will begin a paradigm shift in how college campuses in California prevent and investigate sexual assaults. Rather than using the refrain “no means no,” the definition of consent under the bill requires “an affirmative, conscious and voluntary agreement to engage in sexual activity.”
