    The backlog of rape kits has put justice on hold for a lot of people. Back in 2009, more than 11,000 untested kits were found in a Detroit Police Department storage facility. Some were more than 25 years old.

    Mariska Hargitay speaks on some of the issues surrounding the rape kit backlog in Detroit, Michigan. #endthebacklog (x)

    It costs between $1,000 – $1,500 to test every single rape kit. There are over 10,000 kits left in Detroit’s rape kit backlog. Your donation can go directly to testing them. Donate to the Detroit Crime Commission’s backlog initiative by clicking here.

    I am pretty explicitly anti-police in every respect. But I support Wayne County prosecutor Kym Worthy and her push to catalogue the egregious backlog of unprocessed rape kits in Detroit. 

    Her work has already identified countless serial rapists in southeast Michigan, and will continue to identify these rapist pieces of shit as she moves forward.

    Who cares if this process leads to conviction or not. Just give us the list. We can take care of the rest.

    "After Detroit tested the first 10% of its backlogged kits, authorities were able to link cases to 46 serial rapists." (x)

    Just think about it: 46 serial rapists. And the evidence against them was out there, all the time, in those backlogged kits. And that’s just 10% of them

    I already liked Old Economy Steve. So, it was only natural I’d like the Scumbag Baby Boomer meme as well.

    I don’t know whether I should laugh or cry.

    the truth, it burns

    on my soul, this will always be relevant.

    Sitting on top of tables is one of the most satisfying things, I don’t even know why it just feels so perfect.

    Sitting on top of tables increases happiness by 5000%. I wonder if anyone actually knows why.

    we’re all cats in disguise?

    The myth that white racists are the minority of white people is a pervasive and deadly myth indeed.
