This is Millicent Gaika. She is a 30-year-old South African woman who was tied up, beaten, strangled, tortured and raped for five hours.
Why was she battered and rape? She is victim of a practice called corrective rape, a term that describes the process of men raping women who claim to be lesbians until they have been turned straight. Such a practice is particularly popular in South Africa, and of course, homosexuality cannot be ‘cured,’ and Millicent is not the first woman who was victimized. The most vicious form of torture a woman can experience in South Africa for being a lesbian is having her genitals mutliated by sharp objects. 24 out of 25 men who are accused of doing such crimes walk free. More than 500 corrective rapes are reported each year, and more than 30 South African lesbians have been murdered because of their sexuality over the past decade.
There is a petition that is aiming to expose these crimes in South Africa. The mission is to get police to be more responsive to the corrective rapes and charge reasonable fines to the men performing these rapes. Sign the petition here. It only takes a name and an address. That’s all. Please sign it.
And I’m not usually the person to say it, but please reblog this. Please get the message out there that this is happening out there in the world. Please.

I have established that after watching a movie a certain amount of times, I refuse to refer to it by its acutal title.

There should be an obligatory law for every city in America to have at least one of these displayed.
That way I’m sure to see it no matter where I go.

Doctor: I know you’re team players and everything but she’ll definitely kill the first three of you.
River: Oh the first seven easily.
Doctor: Seven, really?
River: Oh eight for you honey.
Doctor: Stop it.
River: Make me.
Doctor: Yeah well maybe I will.

“I don’t like quiet. I don’t like having to sit with myself. But no matter where you go, there you are. I hate being on my own. The lights are always on, if you see what I mean. I’m learning to sit still but it’s hard. Really hard.” - Tom Hardy

This. Is. Glorious.

Series 5 of Doctor Who to White Lies’s “Death.” Major spoilers for the end of the season if you haven’t seen it yet. To me this is what Doctor Who is all about. Enjoying every moment of life. Take life by the hand and run with it!

"… memory is not a stable friend. Too often it lies, distorts, or frequently forgets many things both important and trivial. Memory steals parts of your life that should have belonged to you forever. It’s like entrusting the only complete copy of your history to an erratic, frequently scatterbrained, sometimes irascible person who doesn’t always do their job well and can’t be bothered keeping the records straight. Unlike you, they don’t care…"
