    Rape is the only crime on the books for which arguing that the temptation to commit it was too clear and obvious to resist is treated as a defence. For every other crime, we call that a confession.

    I’ve gotten more angry asks about this post than I have actual reblogs.

    Hello tumblr.

    I’ve noticed that a lot of y’all are really into the hit Netflix show Orange is the New Black. Now, I’m not going to bore you with any prison abolitionist rant here. I just have a request.

    You know how Miss Claudette doesn’t get letters? How Tricia says that her friends used to write her a lot in the beginning but tapered off? How Piper mentions that the only mail she got that week was a card from her grandma? Well these are all fairly accurate things for real prisoners.

    If you love this show and your heart hurts for them, that’s fine. Just please consider taking the time to get a prisoner penpal.

    There are hundreds of lists of prisoners who need penpals. One of the best resources in the world is black and pink’s database of queer and trans prisoners. That’s at:

    http://www.blackandpink.org/pen-pals/

    I could go on and on about how important this is, but if you’ve watched OITNB, you should already know. Please consider sharing just a few minute of your life every month with someone who could really use it.
