George Takei describes the moment when he and his family were sent to an internment camp.

"Another scene I remember now as an adult is every morning at school we started the day with the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag…there was the American flag flying over the camp but I could also see the barbed wire fence and the sentry towers pointing at us from my schoolhouse window as I recited the words ‘With liberty and justice for all’." - George Takei, The Daily Show (July 24, 2014). 

Full Episode (apologies, The Daily Show website does not have the best video player).

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.

Guy on train:
I'd fuck you if you didn't have so many tattoos.
Me:

Guy:
I said I'd fuck you if you didn't have so many tattoos!
Me:
*takes off headphones* Leave. Me. Alone.
Guy:
Why the fuck do you have so many tattoos?
Me:
Guy:
Are you fucking deaf as well as a piece of trash?
Lady by door:
Hey. Leave her alone.
Guy:
Are you her trash girlfriend? Fucking dykes, all tattooed like fucking men. Disgusting waste of pussy.
Lady:
*moves forward, carefully moves jacket so only I can see the badge on her belt* Are you okay?
Me:
Fine. Just wish he'd go away.
Lady cop:
I can make that happen.
Guy:
Oh, yeah, bitch? Who the fuck are you? I'll kill you!
Lady cop:
And that's what I was waiting for. *grabs guy, holds him against the door* Harassing women on the train was enough, but you just threatened a cop. You're battin' a thousand tonight.
Entire train:
*applauds*
