CW: sexual assault Reading the news today I came across some very ignorant comments, which deeply upset me... so I decided to revisit an old poem about the importance of listening and showing support for individuals who choose to come forward about their experiences with sexual assault. Truth be told, it’s not my favourite poem that I’ve written in terms of style, but I think it’s an important message to get out there. We live in a time where victims of sexual assault are still shamed for coming forward, subjected to ridiculous/inappropriate questioning and blamed for something that WAS NOT THEIR FAULT. The amount of times I have heard someone ask “what was she wearing” in response to a sexual assault claim is honestly disgraceful. And I am sick of confronting the same tired rhetoric that women would somehow make false accusations and relive their trauma for “attention”. This stops now. If you are someone who has ever made insensitive comments or mocked victims of sexual assault, or simply just laughed or remained quiet when your friends have done so... you need to do better. LISTEN and call out insensitivity and toxic behaviour when you see it.

If there is one thing women have to understand, it is that the most effective way to overcome patriarchy, is for us to come together as a strong force. All women need to support each other in the positive areas. We shouldn't exclude any woman whether she is African, LGBT, muslim or not religious. As we start a new week, let us remember to always cheer our sisters on in the good things they do and call them out in love when they do negative things. Have a nice Monday! . . . #AsEqualsAfrica #MondayMotivation #RupiKaur #AfricanFeminism #WomenSupportingWomen #YaaGyasi #IntersectionalFeminism #slaygrlslay
I've found that positivity culture culminates an environment where " you wouldn't be as depressed if you were just more positive about things " or "everything happens for a reason" or " stop playing the victim". Focusing on only the "positive" emotions you are keeping yourself from working through your problems and not allowing yourself the personal development in order to work through these issues. Moreover, positivity culture is centered around victim blaming/shaming most of the time e.g. " you brought this on yourself, nobody can harm you without your consent " . All in all, focusing on "pleasant emotions" only a.k.a positivity culture and ignoring the full range of human emotions which include anger, fear, Hate , pain , is toxic, it keeps you from doing any personal development and brews a culture where people's situations are blamed on themselves (which is not true by the way) . *** [ Image description: a tweet that reads " I can't hang out with the positive vibes only clans, I like those who are comfortable with the entire spectrum of human emotion. ]

[STORY SERIES, 4 of 9] 💟 It was one of the many times I ran away from home as a teenager. A friend and I wandered around downtown San Jose, California. . . 💟It was after 9pm, and I had successfully told a police officer I was 17 when I was 15. My friend, however, said her actual birthdate to the officers and was taken back home to her parents. . . 💟Shortly after being separated, an older girl, probably 18 years old or so, befriended me. I told her I was a runaway and she suggested we get a motel room. . . 💟As we walked towards our room, we passed a room with an open door and three guys inside. . . 💟They asked if we wanted to come to their room and party. We agreed to after we settled into our room. . . 💟Shortly we made our way back to the three guys. . . 💟At first it was all smiles, laughter, and alcohol. . . 💟Until the older girl I was with started having sex with one of the guys. . . 💟This is front of everyone on one of the two beds. . . 💟Suddenly the other two guys looked at me. I knew what they expected. . . 💟I put my hands up and shook my head. I said, “No, I’m not like that. I’m not doing that.” . . 💟Too late. . . 💟One of them turned the lights off. Suddenly I felt four hands all over my body. . . 💟I tried pushing them away, but instead they pushed me on the other bed. . . 💟One of them went for my pants button and the other tried pulling my pants off. . . 💟I fought with all of my strength as they tried forcing my pants and underwear down. . . 💟I fought for a good 5 minutes until they gave up. . 💟The two guys who had just attempted to rape me were now angry. They screamed at me to get out. . . 💟My “friend” had to stop having sex with one of them scolded me for ruining the fun. . . 💟I never reported this. . . 💟And I didn’t because I felt ashamed for feeling violated by their advances. I didn’t because everyone in that scenario was angry with me for not giving in and giving it up. #whyididntreport
"Passion makes you believe in yourself. It is motivating. It is infectious. It is the key to long-term success." - Gloria T. Caoile, Asia Pacific American Labor Alliance.

WHAT ABOHT THE MEN?....When you’re constantly asked to consider men in your feminism - How are you including men? How are you speaking to men? Make sure you don’t alienate men!! Could not be more bored or disinterested in this thinking. . All men need to do right now is - LISTEN, SELF EDUCATE, STEP ASIDE OR STEP UP. . Listen (ie. just use your ears and do not talk over, invalidate or mansplain to the women in your life). . Self educate (ie. read a book on gender equality, identity or patriarchy. Google if you don’t have time for a whole damn book). . Step aside or step up (ie. ask if the women in your workplace are being paid fairly, do your fair share of house work and child rearing, don’t accept the spot on a board or panel if there is no gender parity). . These are all things men can do that do not mean being “included” in the narrative or purpose of women’s campaigns/issues/organisations. Our entire world is constructed around men. How about we ask how every organisation, political party or charity is speaking to women? How are they including us? How are they speaking to us? . .

HI YOUVE COME PRETTY FAR ALREADY. I use to believe that life had this specific timeline, had to be married at a certain age, kids, have the right job. THANKFULLY I've learnt it doesn't work like that and that's okay. Because that makes it an adventure and also how ya learn and grow. 🌸 don't compare ur self to others, you're the only you around.
Hi! My name is Calvin. I'm the elected PR director and Treaserer of the Stevensville, MT GSA. I myself am gay and wish to spread the word about the club to the Bitterroot Valley, which is saturated with queer individuals, closeted or otherwise. On a greater scale, my goal is to give info to anyone, anywhere, who wishes to read. This information should eventually include the following: a complete guide on how to treat your queer friends respectfully, personal accounts of the queer experience by group members, a thorough sex-ed guide targeted at all LGBT+ individuals, up-to-date news regarding and/or affecting the LGBT+ community, our history as a community, and several hotlines for teens to call in crisis. But other than the cold, serious aspects of what I'd like to offer, I'm also going to post queer-based memes, art created in support of the club and community, and other random stuff I'll think up later. Thank you for reading, I hope not to disappoint. . . . . . #LGBT #gay #pride #lesbian #love #loveislove #queer #transgender #bisexual #lgbtpride #trans #intersex #inthecloset #lgbtcommunity #instagay #equality #pansexual #lovewins #follow #nonbinary #gayboy #bi #asexual #genderfluid #lgbtsupport #tpoc #qpoc #intersectionalfeminism #gaycouple #transisbeautiful

As I read the news about Pranay’s murder by the casteist family, I ask myself – how many more deaths will it take for Indians to understand the evil that is the caste system? I sit pondering over this and like many others, I am pretty convinced that the caste system is quite well understood only by those in the upper part of this hierarchy. The ones at the lower end, the so-called ‘lower castes’ suffer as they fail to grapple why they are at the bottom of this system. Is it truly the profession that places them in the lowest end of this hierarchy? Or is it just an excuse for the upper caste to demean the ones they think are low-born? How does a lower caste ‘pariah’ deal with this? . . . Read the full article on FII, link in bio.

Anthony Was A Hater: Dorothy Height (w/ @mswrightontime ) — This week, Sandie is joined by award-winning director, actor, and writer Yhá Mourhia Wright, who tells the story of Dorothy Height — a champion for both civil rights and women’s rights. Yhá Mourhia gets into conspiracy theories of oppression. Sandie talks about the Instagram spiral. They discuss the importance of intersectional feminism, the performance art of the current state of activism, and how Susan B. Anthony was basically the worst. Like, how are we still celebrating her? Now?

Months ago I joined an intersectional feminism bookclub. So far we’ve read two books: Written on the Body by Jeanette Winterson and El eterno femenino (The Eternal Feminine) by Rosario Castellanos. This month we’re approaching Reading Lolita in Teheran by Azar Nafisi. I’m really excited for this month’s session because I haven’t been able to attend any of the previous meetings due to family issues. I’m betting everything on going this time, hahah. My copy of Nafisi’s text arrived today, so I’m expecting to start it as soon as possible! . . . #sundayvibes #100daysofproductivity #studygrammexico #studygrammer #studygramcommunity #mylifeasateachersassistant #bookstagram #bibliophile #roughcut #bookpages #bookmark #readinglolitaintehran #azarnafisi #bookclub #book #intersectionalfeminism #feminism #englishmajor #englishliterature #washitape #whitefeed #collegelife #studymotivation #studyinspiration #studyinspo #studyspo #reading #rereading #letrasinglesas #unam
