The Opposite of Rape Culture is Nurturance Culture | Dating Tips for the Feminist Man
Fascinating, relatable, and very important. "This is men’s work to do, and yet it is needed by people of all genders who have men in their lives [...] It can be as simple as sending someone you know this piece, and saying “I’m available.” It can be as simple as posting this piece, and saying “I’m here.”"

"Sorry to put this on you but I have an honest question about depression an suicide" | Matt Fraction
[Trigger warning should be obvious] This made me giggle like a twit. He's exactly right: the things that make a difference, and the things that sometimes make it all worth it, are exactly the things you would least expect to be significant.
