SEXUAL VIOLENCE: Sexual and gender violence are the result of (toxic) masculinity combined with outdated sex and gender-based cultural, social and religious norms. Shame is just another thread in this gigantic ball of fuckery yarn.
-
This cannot be said enough times; patriarchy cannot be dismantled without re-writing the rules of the gender relationship between ALL men, womxn and non-binary folx.
-
The luxury to ignore these issues is one I do not believe we have, I know I don't! We must keep talking and doing for things to change, all ACTION is required!
-
This also means questioning EVERYTHING you have been fed by the world around you. We need to take a raw look at the systems in place and do our part in shaping a society where sexual violence doesn't exist! - Africa☇

I think it’s incredibly irresponsible for Forbes to call her a self made billionaire. Her cosmetics line popularity came from her previous fame. She never would have gotten investments for her line without her preexisting family money. That’s not to say she shouldn’t be be acknowledged for making her own successful company, it just is incorrect to say that she is self made. #lgbtq#blacklivesmatter#endhate#humanrights#endchildsexualabuse#endometriosis#endchildmarriage#endchildhoodhunger#endchildabuse#endchildpoverty#endchildtrafficking#endsextrafficking#endsexualviolence#endsexualassault#enddomestcabuse#humanrights

@alyraisman and dozens of other victims of disgraced ex-doctor Larry Nassar accepted the Arthur Ashe Courage Award on Wednesday at the 2018 ESPYs. “We may suffer alone, but we survive together,” Raisman said. “All those years we were told: ‘You are wrong.’ ‘You misunderstood.’ ‘He’s a doctor.’ ‘It’s okay.’ ‘Don’t worry, we’ve got it covered.’ ‘Be careful, there are risks involved.’ The intention? To silence us in favor of money, medals and reputation.” (photo by Willy Sanjuan / Invision / AP)

Yesterday night will go down as one of the most important and meaningful highlights of my career and life. Being able to literally and figuratively back up these survivors of sexual assault at the #ESPYS as a unified front  means more to me than I will be able to express in words. To write music with so much love that it connects me with others who understand is a dream come true. The survivors informed me that @espn has been championing their story from the very beginning- before anyone would believe or listen. Learning that made this whole moment mean so much more to me. Congratulations to the #arthurasheaward recipients. I stand with you. #metoo #fiercewomen #strongwomen #fightlikeagirl #feminism #thefutureisfemale #girlpower #endsexualviolence

65/100 ::Accepting my body’s experience:: On one hand there is dissociation, distance from repeated violence—my mind was masterful at scrambling information to guard me from horror. On the other hand is intellectualizing what my body experienced—what still feels separate from me.
.

Being raped as a child was an irreversible stab into the core essence of my being. The profuse spilling of innocence from that puncture is more gory than if he mutilated my body with the most gruesome wound. The first time I was raped a black hole was born within me to accommodate infinite sorrow—it’s where I learned to pour every subsequent moment of the countless times I was raped thereafter. I fed the black hole entire parts of myself, anything that touched that violence had to go.
.

That separation saved my life. It also made me an easy target—with every attack I retreated ever deeper into dissociation: my body laid surrendered. It was my front line in war; it valiantly stood between rape and my core self, it protected me because no one ever did, it was the only caretaker I ever had. My body walked through fire to move me to safe ground.
.
I now feel some acceptance of how my body was brutalized. It is still very hard to look at my body and comprehend what it endured. For just a few moments these two hands of disparate experiences can merge in an understanding beyond my intellect.
.
I made that violence very small in order to survive, I hoped one day I could just flick it away. But actually I had to first let the monstrosity of it all explode out from the confines of compartments I had compressed it into, once I gave permission through the wish to heal it unwound itself from decades of suppression.
.
Now I can allow it to become small again—but this time in peace and clarity. The miracle of my survival—the profound strength of my will, the superhuman protection my body manifested in the face of annihilation—now rings bright in the truth: my power pales his grotesque grabs at power and domination from a defenseless child. The pain my body absorbed can now be a symbol of my vitality. I celebrate it for allowing me to step into my power—knowing I’ll never be diminished again.

Throw back Mood! I’m reminiscing about my trip to Haiti and the orphanage I visited while there. I love this picture of this girl dancing with no care in the world and no care as to who’s watching her. I think more of us need to be more like this little girl being ourself unapologetically no matter who’s watching. SN: the Go Fund Me for sexual abuse victims in Haiti is still open and we’re still taking donations. If you can’t give a monetary donation there are other ways to donate, our next trip is coming up soon and we can use your help. Please DM me for more info. Blog post about the children at this orphanage, my trip, and how your donations have helped is still up on my website! Link is in my bio!

Finally got it. Just a little more than a month away from trial. I’ve started seeing the best therapist I could ask for. On Monday I will try boxing out my pain for the first time thanks to @mikaelamayer . I’m going to start volunteering at the care clinic to counsel women on their options and that the CHOICE IS THEIRS. So here’s to all you cowardly small men who think you make the decisions for us. Who think you can put your hands on us and that it will be ok. To the ones that call us crazy for finally raising our voice. Your time is up. We’ve begun.

So, funny story. The person who was told by the court not to be at this specific place at this specific time was, unbeknownst to me while I was killing time taking these pictures, in fact at this specific place at this specific time, just watching me. -And when the child visitation supervisor reported it, he received severe consequences. -Haha, just kidding!! The court took that info & his disturbing demands for unsupervised time with my child in the bathroom (on top of the years of mental, physical, sexual abuse documented by various courts, the years of abuse of the legal system, etc etc), and as a result, he received unsupervised visitation. So yeah. If you have an M.D., you can be pleased to know that your desires and demands, however sick, terrifying, illegal, or bizarre they are, will take precedence over the rights, health, and safety of any child or woman you choose.°

Being a CSA Survivor takes a lot of courage.. It takes courage to keep silent, often times for many years or decades.
It takes courage to speak up as an adult, more so as a child.
Making the choice to find healing is courageous, so much pain to sift through.
Choosing to love yourself takes courage, seeing our own strengths and gifts can be difficult.
Sometimes just getting out of bed takes all the courage we can muster.

CSA Survivors are by no means weak, rather we find our strength to heal, to speak out, to advocate, to make a difference in this world.

Find your courage!
You are enough.
You are not alone.
You are Loved!

Share the Love! ❤️

They received the Arthur Ashe Award for Courage In a statement, gymnast Sarah Klein said “we must start caring about children’s safety more than we care about adults’ reputations. If we can just give one person the courage to use their voice, this is worth it.” Nassar has been sentenced to up to 125 years in jail.

A woman’s clothing has NO bearing and cannot and should not be a reason to justify sexual violence! It can happen to anyone.

Although I am completely drained and emotionally exhausted I woke up with some relief.  I woke up to this message about these Nassar survivors from someone who knows of a terrible journey I faced last year.  Although I am again having to face similar challenges (luckily not to the same extent I'd previously undergone) I personally know speaking out against sexual abuse & sexual harassment is not easy.  It's uncomfortable, and you constantly question yourself before, during, and after telling someone about it.  You often feel embarrassed when it is the aggressor that should be the only one feeling shame and embarrassment.  Although these challenges will never just disappear,  I hope they lessen.  We need to provide safer environments and promote against sexual abuse and harassment, and just as importantly ENCOURAGE women to stand up against the aggressor.  I applaud these women. #metoo #womensrights #humanrights #speakout #survivors #espyawards #metoomovement #endsexualviolence #endsexualharassment #enddomesticviolence #domesticabuse #domesticviolence

20 year old Hnin Ei is part of a tight-knit #punk community in #Yangon. One night at a concert, a man in her community grabbed her friend’s breast. “I was so angry and I posted on Facebook that I wanted to kick that person out,” she said. “But he’s older and he has a lot of friends in the punk community.”

In that moment, Ei says, letting people know that she was angry about the incident on Facebook made her feel relieved. “Like I’m not alone,” she says. “Sometime it feels good to speak out and share your experience with a lot of people.” But later, people in her community replied with comments like, ‘he didn’t mean any harm.’ He never faced consequences. *

Later, another friend was assaulted at a concert. The friend punched the assailant, and streamed the encounter on Facebook. The video went viral in Ei’s community.  Ei says she hasn’t seen Myanmar’s women embrace the #MeToo movement online, but she’s seen hundreds of posts from women about their experiences of sexual harassment and assault.

While Hnin Ei  says Facebook makes it easy for women to share information about sexual assault, she feels that what people say on Facebook doesn’t reflect their actions in real life. After her friend livestreamed the video in which she punched a sexual assault assailant, people blamed her for attracting unwanted attention in the comments. “I feel like we need to do something in the outside world,” Ei says. “When I’m angry and I want to do something and I post on Facebook, I feel like it’s not reality. I think it can be more effective to say something on the outside.” *
Ei has been off Facebook for the past 6 months. While many women use FB to share their voices, she says, campaigns often fail. “I feel there’s too much hatred on Facebook. People are posting a lot. Their hatred is getting inside of me and I don’t want...

After 40 some years of silence I felt true relief after I spoke of the abuse. A huge heaviness was lifted; I survived.
There is still much work to do on this road we call recovery, but day by day I feel my strength seep into my daily life.

Share the Love! ❤️

As our founder, Mariska Hargitay, always says: “The backlog is one of the clearest and most shocking demonstrations of how we regard these crimes in our society. Testing rape kits sends a fundamental and crucial message to victims of sexual violence: You matter. What happened to you matters. Your case matters.” #iWILL #EndTheBacklog #EndTrafficking #EndExploitation #EndSexualViolence #TestAllKits #JoyfulHeart

Such an honour to guide gentle yoga + mindfulness meditation with the support of trauma informed fundamentals.
An outdoor session on the magical property of @4thlinetheatre was pure delight. Although I'm not teaching public drop in classes yet #newmom, it felt SO good to be connected with community through the artistry of therapeutic yoga. #free2bwellness #consent
