THEY CALL ME THE BANANA HAMMER

What can I say? Seriously, is there a limit as to how much vulgarity and stupidity I can spew? My name is Zach. I was once intelligent, but then I met the internet and it was a star-crossed-lover-kinda-shit-thing yo.

This one is for my bitches with a fat ass in the fucking club
I said, where my fat ass big bitches in the club?
Fuck the skinny bitches! Fuck the skinny bitches in the club!
I wanna see all the big fat ass bitches in the muthafuckin’ club
Fuck you if you skinny bitches, what?! Kyuh

Sam Pepper handcuffs himself to women on the street, refusing to release one woman until she kisses him

In January, Sam Pepper uploaded a video called “How To Get A Girlfriend Easy” in which he sneaks up behind or beside unsuspecting women on the street and handcuffs them to himself. He then tells them they’re “his girlfriend now.”

When one victim reacts furiously, saying “No! I don’t know you! Take it off!” and demands that he remove the handcuffs, he refuses and replies with “We’re dating now.” She tries again, “Look, I don’t know where you’re from, but we don’t do this in America. Take this off,” while fighting with the cuffs. He refuses again, insisting they’re “going on a date.” She then tells him that she’s married, to which he says “No, you’re married to me now,” and refuses yet again to remove the handcuffs.

At the end of the video, another woman is pleading with him to undo the handcuffs, and he refuses to until she kisses him on the lips. Pepper appears to think the entire scenario is hilarious at best and endearingly misguided at worst, while the women being “pranked” are visibly livid, terrified, and profoundly uncomfortable.

NONE OF THESE THINGS ARE PRANKS.

We need to stop calling assault by white men on men of color and women of all races “pranks,” because it makes them seem lighthearted and fun, not like the violent criminal acts they are.

NONE OF THESE THINGS ARE PRANKS.

NONE OF THESE THINGS ARE PRANKS.

NONE OF THESE THINGS ARE PRANKS.

NONE OF THESE THINGS ARE PRANKS.

Why is <i>We need to stop calling assault by white men</i> so specific? My freshman year of high school a white kid was “pranked” by a rather athletic colored kid about drugs. Now this white kid was clearly autistic & didn’t comprehend the joke yet the colored kid kept on with it. He wasn’t joking around he was clearly bullying him and even though it wasn’t assault my point is why is that part so specified? And what about women assaulting other women or men? Why act like that doesn’t happen it does? Men get raped too, men get assaulted too. Women can be a strong as men and do the same cruel things men do and men can be as gentle and kind as women. No matter what age, race or gender or differentiating factor crimes happen to people. How about we just stop these crimes and NOT try to specify it to an age, race, gender or any other differentiating factors.

C*lored is a derogatory term, just to tell you. People stopped using that term like 60 years ago. And the reason people specify race and gender is because, overwhelmingly, it’s men assaulting and raping women, and white cops assaulting and even killing PoC and getting away with it. The situation you’re talking about, in fact, seems to involve ableism. You thought it was necessary to bring up the victim in the prank you’re referring to was autistic, i.e. disabled because, obviously, it would not have happened if he wasn’t. Obviously, people’s oppressed identities are relevant to certain conversations.

However, I don’t see how the rape and assault of men is relevant to this particular conversation. Rape and assault do happen to men, but on a much smaller scale. Conversations about that topic need to happen, but I have seen NUMEROUS male victims of abuse and assault speak out against what you’re doing. They have said they don’t want people like you derailing discussions about violence against women to say “what about the men!!!” that does not help male victims at all. A big reason male victims aren’t recognized is because we live in a patriarchy that perpetuates myths about gender roles and women allegedly being weak and men being “tough.” Saying “patriarchy doesn’t matter!” hurts victims of all genders. You are not helping anyone.
