Yes, false rape accusations happen. Run the protocol anyway. I’ve heard that perhaps the military has the highest number of ‘em. True or not, RUN THE PROTOCOL ANYWAY. Because in 15 years of investigating rape accusations, I can count those that panned out as false on one hand. Meanwhile, the one time I almost skipped the protocol, the one time I almost didn’t believe a petty officer, because I was naive as an investigator and a young woman, because her commanding officer described her as “a party girl, always late, always out drinking, don’t bother with this one”, she turned out to be the victim of one of the most brutal assaults I’ve ever investigated. She shouldn’t have still been -alive-, let alone up and making the accusation. So let me repeat: five false accounts in fifteen years. And one time I almost failed a woman ‘cause of the bullshit way it’s normal to talk about us. Take your shipmates’ word, and then run the protocol. Every. Single. Time. — - JAG lawyer, speaking to my husband’s plant during Sexual Assault Prevention Month. (via circusbones)

My darling clean-eaters, vegans and vegetarians, please add this piece to your collection. Not only because one of the essays was penned by yours truly, but because it’s the only piece of literature that discussed veganism from the perspective of the black woman - addressing critical issues of ethics, animal rights, health and food justice. Support the movement. Paz.
This is super interesting. Not a vegetarian by any stretch of the imagination, but after going to college I’ve developed a lot of feelings about food, race, class & social mobility
