This 420 take a moment of silence for all the people who have had lost their freedom because of non-violent drug charges.
An abusive man is not unable to resolve conflicts nonabusively; he is unwilling to do so. The skill deficits of abusers have been the subject of a number of research studies, and the results lead to the following conclusion: Abusers have normal abilities in conflict resolution, communication, and assertiveness when they choose to use them. They typically get through tense situations at work without threatening anyone; they manage their stress without exploding when they spend Thanksgiving with their parents; they share openly with their siblings regarding their sadness over a grandparent’s death. But they don’t want to handle these kinds of issues nonabusively when it involves their partners. You can equip an abuser with the most innovative, New Age skills for expressing his deep emotions, listening actively, and using win-win bargaining, and then he will go home and continue abusing.

when a majority like white/cis/straight people complain about “reverse oppression” it’s like thrashing around in the shallow end of a pool with floaties on screaming that you’re drowning when all you gotta do is stand up and walk out meanwhile the rest of us can barely tread water out in the deep end but nobody notices since the lifeguard is tryna save your whiny ass

9x14 - Hotch lends a hand
robots enthusiastically giving consent though
robots who understand and initiate sexual contact with a human
robots who don’t even get anything physically from it either but they just love making their human so happy
humans who really want to make their robot feel good too
humans learning about wireplay and asking if it’s okay for them to try it out
robots who trust their human enough to let them expose and manipulate their inner machinery
robots who severely underestimate the amount of research their human has done on the subject and they end up coming so hard their voice glitches and they have to reboot
humans being extremely concerned that they did something wrong when this happens
robots coming back online and, still a bit hazy from the afterglow, assuring their human that no, they did quite a lot of things just right
HUMANS AND ROBOTS CONSENSUALLY EXPLORING AND ENJOYING EACH OTHERS’ BODIES AND REACTIONS (⊙‿⊙✿)
when men dress up as women or white people wear hijabs or darken their skin in order to “see how hard it is,” they’re simply admitting that they believe those members of those groups are untrustworthy to the point that they can’t honestly relay the reality of their own experiences.
