Портрет нигретяночки 🌒
В последнее время нравится портреты с изображением руки. Это придаёт картине некий шарм. Создаёт игривое кокетливое настроение

I'm super fired up at the moment because I spent the past 2 hours reading articles and watching news segments on the whole Harvey Weinstein scandal.
First of all (@twitter), I can't believe this guy behaved this way for DECADES and faced zero consequences for his actions.
SECOND OF ALL: This is a problem that affects almost every female on the *planet.* Ask any woman and they will be able you give you a specific example about receiving unwanted sexual attention.
The truly tragic thing about this is that there isn't a concrete solution. Sure, you can teach girls self defense, you can teach them the "right" things to say in specific situations, and you can teach men and boys to behave properly, IT DOESN'T MATTER. As long as humans populate the earth, predators will as well, and at this point the most important thing we can do is encourage women and girls to speak up about their experiences.
Because of the media attention surrounding this topic, I've personally been re-visiting several instances I had with a teacher where he behaved inappropriately. I remember how embarrassed I was at the time, and how scared I was to come forward, and how helpless I felt whenever I was around him. Had I opened up sooner, I probably could've saved myself a lot of grief and he possibly could've faced consequences. I'm not blaming myself, nor did that experience horribly scar me, but it's certainly something I have to live with and be angry about whenever a dialogue like this is opened on such a massive scale.
What I'm ultimately saying is this: don't let fear of negative repercussions keep you from confiding in someone about harassment. It is never okay for a anyone to force unwanted sexual advances on you, so if you want to stop it, the first step is to say something.
And that is the end of my rant. Please enjoy the photo of a messy palette I used to balance out this intense subject.
