Reblogging because I mentioned this study in a post the other day and someone reblogged & replied insinuating that I’d made it up, but I didn’t have the citation on hand right then. As I said then: rape culture is what teaches rapists that they aren’t rapists.

California is the first state to pass a ban on using the “gay panic” defense to reduce a murder charge.
You can no longer wiggle out of a murder charge in California by saying you were frightened by a scary lesbian.
Current California law allows a murder charge to be reduced to manslaughter if the killing happened in the heat of passion - the so-called “panic defense”. Defendants charged with murdering members of the LGBT community have been able to claim they acted in a “moment of passion” upon discovering the victim was LGBT, and therefor their crime met the requirements for a reduced charge of manslaughter. The bill that passed the Assembly this week will bar defendants from using their victim’s gender or sexual orientation to support a panic defense. An identical bill passed the state senate in May.
Democratic Assemblywoman Susan Bonilla (right) sponsored the bill, which passed on a 50-10 vote. Ms. Bonilla told reportersthat such defenses legitimize violence against LGBT people.
Though The American Bar Association advocates curtailing the use of the “gay panic” defense, California is the first state to ban using the “heat of passion” defense because the victim was LGBT.
The bill now heads for Governor Jerry Brown’s desk for his signature.
I’ve been so busy lately I forgot to share this.
There was a Harvard study that says the same thing happens when a male name versus a female name.
Unions brought this Labor Day to you…
Republicans want to destroy unions.
well he really should have worn more protective clothing if he didn’t want that to happen
sounds to me like he was asking for it
Are we really sure he was actually shot and decapitated? Idk, sounds like something he would’ve made up. Guys make false decapitation accusations all the time, you know.
If he didn’t want to be decapitated, he shouldn’t have worn a shirt that showed off his neck
I mean, not all woman decapitate people. I’m not like that.
If you do not reblog this, you are in fact lying.
Hey, don’t you fucking scroll down
Mourn the death of a fictional character??? I grew up reading comic books. Nobody stays dead …not even Bucky.

this is the best thing ive ever read
On 9th August 2014, unarmed 18 year old Michael Brown was shot by police officer Darren Wilson in Ferguson, Missouri, sparking social unrest that continues to this day. Here is a petition to prevent police misconduct.
The automatic criminalization of black and brown bodies
and a racist.
Ok but the black kids are holding small ass BB guns or .22s and the white kids got straight up assault rifles this is still mighty f’ed up
I do have a problem with one photo and not the other. And it is NOT because I am racist.
I have a problem with those smiling privileged white kids who are ready to kill for sport and personal gain. They are way too young for those guns and I am sure they are being taught the wrong lessons about gun control and such. Merry Christmas, let’s go shooting!!!
On the other hand, look at those black kids. They do not look happy at all. They look like they have been given those for protection. Like shit has gone down and they are too young to grow up and see the harsh reality. Things may get ugly, but at least they have a chance to survive to see another day.
