This is not consent.
I wonder how many men who are raped and take it to court, have their underwear put forward as evidence? How did this girls laced thong provide consent when there would have been another item of clothing covering them? How can the shape of my underwear determine whether I’m consenting to sex or not? I want to know when it became ok to focus on a victims underwear in a case of sexual assault. Anyone can be a victim of rape or sexual abuse. They can be of any gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation etc, rape doesn’t discriminate. I’m tired of hearing about cases that make it to court but petty things such as underwear are brought in as evidence, leaving the victim believing they’re the ones to blame. This results in them having more guilt and disgust than they already did have. We should be encouraging people to come forward to show that we are a society that don’t accept those who mistreat others in such a vile way. Instead, we make a mockery of the already broken souls who are brave enough to report what they’ve been through.
Regardless of what you’re wearing, what your sexual history is, how much you’ve had to drink, if you didn’t consent- you didn’t consent. Anything less than a yes is no. Your underwear can’t speak, therefore it can’t consent on your behalf!! ▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️ #thisisnotconsent#consent#rapevictim#thisisnotokay#istandwithher#metoo#metoomovement#justice
ALL IS REVEALED!
Join AGC on this Transgender Day of Remembrance this Sunday as we learn from Mark 13:1-8
When read apocalyptic literature in the Bible, we immediately imagine a dystopian world filled with the horrors of monsters, zombies, and chaos. But what if the focus on end-time calamities divert our attention from the intent of apocalypse—to reveal truth. Perhaps, there is something life-giving and life-affirming in God’s revelation if only we place close enough attention. That perhaps our preoccupation with the ruins and ravages of a time beyond our time may be concealing truths about God’s love, justice, and mercy for God’s creation. All is revealed. What do we see?
DO YOU KNOW MALAYSIA’S 16 CORE VALUES?
I didn’t know them until I attended a seminar at IIUM yesterday, exploring Malaysia’s National Educational Philosophy, core values., and how it can be revived, enhanced, and again impact in moulding future students in schools, colleges and Universities.
Ministry of Education identified 16 core or noble values (30 years ago) that are desirable to be inculcated and developed in Malaysia. The values are drawn from various religions, traditions and norms of Malaysian society that are within the context of the Rukunegara (National Ideology). As usual, I draw what inspires me...Al-Hamdulilla! - So, how do we inculcate these 16 core values in our students? - Any new core values to be added in this era?
- How to make these values more meaningful, impactful and memorable to all of us?
I'm glad he got time. Part of me wonders what would've happened if that footage had not been found. In conclusion, his lawyer stupid if he had one for letting him use that defense smh. #justice#struggleofbeingblack

Repost from @modernmysticmovement using @RepostRegramApp - Chivalry is defined as: “The combination of qualities expected of an ideal knight, especially courage, honor, courtesy, justice, and a readiness to help the weak.” With things like the “Me Too” movement, and all of these high profile men behaving completely inappropriately around the world, it can sometimes seem that these qualities are long dead, just fairy tales of a fantasy time.
But, this is not true. In fact, there are more good men than bad. Unfortunately it is the bad ones that get all the press and air time.
As Modern Mystics, it falls on us to stand as examples of the good men that do exist in the world. The Knights of modern day, who do not slay mythological dragons, but instead slay their inner demons and fight against injustice and inequality wherever they find it.
We use our words, our actions, and our consciousness to fight the battles that need fighting, and protect those who need protection.
Instead of suits of armor, we may wear suits of Armani. It matters not. What matters is how we treat each other, and how we do our work in the world.
Let us together create a new Round Table, and serve as examples to all those who would say that “chivalry is dead.” #modernmysticmovement#chivalry#knights#armor#men#leaders#courage#honor#courtesy#justice#readiness#helpers#mystics#philosophers#kings#consciousness#enlightenment#wisdom#understanding#peace

Was lucky enough to run into Chef Derry @mastercheftd yesterday at lunch and she graciously gave us some of her time. She’s in an interesting @dallasobserver article highlighting the experience of black chefs. #Repost @slowfooddfw
#StirThePot Snag a copy of the @dallasobserver and read all about this. We all want to see #Justice in the food system for sure! 🐌🍴🐌
When I read this news I felt disgust, indignation, sadness, anger, everything together. I still do not understand how there are people, judges, lawyers, juries, even the politics of a country can be so vile and degrading with a victim of rape. Just because a girl or woman, regardless of age, wear thong is a clear indication that they are raped for inciting the rapist and he leaves free of all guilt? I do not accept it. No means no. And no law should belittle the integrity and morals of a person. #ThisIsNotConsent#ibelieveherireland#noisno#instagram#instagood#clothesisnotconsent#justice
Thank you to everyone who has sent me messages of support over these past few days.💙 My own experience has intimately exposed me to reality of why so many survivors do not report rape to law enforcement or other authorities.
The sheer number of heartbreaking let downs I have endured at the hand of a system lacking trauma-informed treatment, efficacy and ability to do their jobs is appalling and almost unbelievable.
All of this, all of these failings, have retraumatized me in ways I never thought possible. Every time I have been devastated once again I have asked myself what I could have said or done differently to communicate the severity and my terror at the thought of a person who attacked me continuing his life without restriction or retribution of any kind.
I have continued to withstand the doubt, the blame, the institutional betrayal in the hope that the man who raped me will not be able to hurt others and will be held accountable for his actions. I have been taking the failure of others to do their job as a representation of my inadequacy in recounting the horror he put me through that night. I haven't been able to trust a single decision I have made in this process, as how could I trust the decision making skills of a girl who trusted someone and found herself getting raped?
But the reality is, I need to reframe and re-examine why I am doing any of this. I have gone forward with the expectation that my rapist will be held accountable and that I will get justice. And although I deserve that, I simply cannot continue to rely on that as my motivation for continuing. Doing so would allow the very real possibility that there is no justice in my case to destroy me.
I need to do this for me. I need to fight for me. I need to trust the decisions I have made as the best for myself, my safety, my mental health and my overall wellbeing. I need to trust me. I am pushing forward for the opportunity to tell my truth, out of the realization that going back now would be retracting my story, something that I simply cannot do. I am going forward because I am worthy. My truth is worthy of being told and I am worthy of action being taken in response to my trauma.
