Yesterday @twerkqueenlouise and I attended a reading of #metoo testimonies, collected amongst Danish actresses. The project #stopstilheden (stop the silence) started in hopes to find maybe a few hundred women to share their stories, but ended up with having ten times that amount. In fact, so many, that only a fraction of them was read aloud during those two hours.
Everything from sexist remarks and inappropriate touching on set, to women on purpose being told that they are to act in a sex scene only 10 minutes prior, so to leave them no choice or time to think. From drama teachers insisting on seeing their female pupils naked for “educational purposes” to shooting of a rape scene actually turn into rape scene. From countless stories of directors using an interview for a role as an opportunity to turn it into a date to a story of a director turning that interview into a rape and actually being proud of being her first time afterwards. I gathered my strength under the whole reading, thinking of the words of Danish politician Ritt Bjerregaard about crying in public: Crying is a sign of one have given up, one should rather become mad, because when you are mad – you intend to fight. And I, sure as fuck, intended to fight. Only in the end, I imagined that any of those things can happen to my daughters very soon and the tears welled up in my eyes. Because those were not stories about exceptions, those were stories about everyday sexism, a sickness in the heart of our theater & film industry as well as our society. I encourage you to learn more about this campaign in Denmark, if you are Danish or a similar campaign in your country. Sexist behavior must be called out. The abuse of women, the sexual assault of women, the rape of women begins in every day examples of sexism.
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and two of his Democratic colleagues have suggested that President Trump should consider resigning, after a run of sexual-harassment scandals has driven out some members of Congress.
Sen. Al Franken “felt it proper for him to resign,” Sanders said in an interview with NBC's “Meet the Press” Sunday morning, referring to the Democrat from Minnesota. “Here you have a president who has been accused by many women of assault, who says on a tape that he assaulted women. He might want to think about doing the same.” Sanders's comment, which built on a tweet he sent last week, came after Democratic Sens. Jeff Merkley (Ore.) and Cory Booker (N.J.) suggested that the "#MeToo moment” should prompt another look at the women who accused Trump of sexual harassment during the 2016 presidential campaign. “The president should resign because he certainly has a track record with more than 17 women of horrific conduct,” Merkley said last week in an interview for the weekday version of “Meet the Press.” On Saturday, during his campaign swing as part of Alabama's U.S. Senate race, Booker told Vice News that the standard that brought down Franken should be applied to the president.
Such an honor to moderate a discussion about #MeToo movement and intersectional feminism (among other things) with legendary feminist @gloriasteinem at last night’s opening night event for #MassWomen Conference. Glo-Glo, thanks for letting me call you “Glo-Glo” (lol), for ignoring yet low key loving me when I said the word “peen,” for your insanely thoughtful answers and wisdom, and for the delightful post-talk dinner with you and your friends. 👸🏻👸🏽 #YQY#FromTheFloUpToTheGloUp#MassConference#AboutLastNight
Preet Didbal is the first Sikh woman mayor in U.S. history. 🙌⠀
Didbal, the daughter of immigrant farm laborers, was sworn into her new position in Yuba City, California on Tuesday. The single mother told HuffPost that during her term, she plans to use her platform to uplift women from a variety of backgrounds. ⠀
As a rape survivor, Didbal told HuffPost she’s long had a passion for women’s heath and has been publicly telling her story for almost two years now. This year’s #MeToo campaign served as proof of the real change that comes with speaking out on sexual assault, she said.⠀

My response and personal experiences.
Re: Melanie Martinez/Timothy Heller situation.
And this disgust is not towards those defending Martinez fairly. It's not towards her fans. It's towards those who think it's okay to tell others to kill themselves for speaking up. Even if it isn't true, treat it lightly. Rape is rape, whether it was an action or just a conversation brought up about it.
I want to explain something.
Nonenthusiastic yes= no
A for sure yes=yes.
If someone is drunk or high they cannot consent completely.
I also want to thank @_steven13x_ for loving me, supporting me, and being with me no matter what. He helps me with my ptsd and I'm thankful for him, as well as his [our] family.

I don't have a funny or sassy caption for this one. I hope these last few months has taught most of us that time doesn't heal all wounds. You simply have to learn to live with them and accept that you'll never be the same
Three women appeared on Megan Kelly Today, have accused President Trump of sexual harassment are calling on Congress to investigate the allegations against him.
The women held a press conference Monday to demand that the president be held accountable for his actions.
"If they were willing to investigate Sen. [Al] Franken [D-Minn.], it's only fair that they do the same for Trump," said Rachel Crooks, one of the president's accusers.
Crooks has accused the president of forcibly kissing her 12 years ago at Trump Tower, where she was a young receptionist.
Samantha Holvey, a former Miss USA contestant who says Trump walked into the dressing room to inspect the women, said the president should step down over the allegations.
"Other folks have resigned. I think he should. I don't think he ever will," she said at the news conference arranged by Brave New Films, a progressive nonprofit group.
The women are trying to return the spotlight to Trump's alleged misconduct at a time when other politicians, media figures, entertainment executives and businessmen have been forced to leave their jobs over accusations of sexual harassment or assault.
But they expressed hope the shifting cultural ground surrounding sexual misconduct would force a reckoning for the president. "So we're at the position now where in some areas of our society, people are being held accountable for unwanted behavior," said Leeds. "But we are not holding our president accountable for what he is and who he is."
At least 16 women during the 2016 campaign accused Trump of sexually harassing them. Trump has denied all of the allegations and the White House has said its official position is that all the women were lying.
"These false claims, totally disputed in most cases by eyewitness accounts, were addressed at length during last year's campaign, and the American people voiced their judgment by delivering a decisive victory," a WH spokesperson said.. — Thehill

“You cannot treat people like they are less than human.” We are just hitting the surface on sexual harassment, assault and abuse. This has been a long time coming. Every story sheds new light, perspective and awareness that this type of behavior is inappropriate and should not be tolerated. No means no. And how you look, how you talk, how you act, how you dress does not give consent for anyone to ever violate you. Sexual assault is real. It has an ever lasting impact on the victim and those around them. It hurts. It’s damaging. It’s painful. We can start with ourselves and teach those around us that is completely unacceptable. #metoo

Republican or Democrat, American or not, we must all take a stand for #metoo . 🗽 Let's take a step back and review what we'd rather avoid.
Out-of-control fires in December, yet we're undoing national parks so we can mine and offshore drill, and we're swimming downstream against already-modest international climate change efforts. State Department gutted. Our nuclear power in the hands of a twitter-happy trigger finger. Peace out the window in international relations. Economy gains soaked for the 1%, who, by definition, is already doing fine. Net neutrality about to get undone. Healthcare hamstrung in tax plan. Immigration turned scapegoating. Civil protections undermined for women and minorities. Aggression everywhere, even on our “side.” I can’t wait to vote this cowardly bully outta here, but I’ll have to. What can we do in the meantime? Show up. Make peaceful noise. Use social media for empathy, not further aggression. 👉 Learn how in our Academy, early bird discount available now: elephantjournal.com/academy. 👩🏾💻👨🏽💻Or just do the right thing on your own.
Either way, 2018 will be a year for participating, not observing.
Bevor sich jemand fragt: wer ist die Tussi auf den Bilder?
tja... Das bin dann wohl ich... @ladyxswift ich hab mich hier lange nicht gemeldet, weil ich nichts zu sagen hatte... Ich hab gelitten und gekämpft. Ich hab meinen Opa verloren und hätte eine freundin gebraucht, aber da war niemand.
Warum ich jetzt was poste? In diesem Monat, am 24.12, wäre mein Opa 75 geworden... Er hätte mit meiner Oma die goldene Hochzeit gefeiert... Und in diesem Monat vor einem Jahr. Hab ich zum ersten Mal zugegeben wie es mir wirklich geht. Mir geht es nicht gut, aber wen sollte das schon interessieren? Niemand wird diesen Text lesen, niemand interessiert wer auf den Bildern ist und niemand interessierte das die letzten drei Jahre die härtesten meines Lebens waren... #abuse#metoo#alone#fighter#loser
