A call to action, for holiday family gatherings and beyond: dare-i-say-asexual Can we please be the generation that stops putting up with the family child molester? The grown uncle who dates teenage girls, the husband who makes uncomfortable comments about young women's clothing, or the cousin who raises red flags with their behavior towards children but no one wants to talk about all need to go Children, especially young women, are expected to "keep the family together" by not making a fuss over incredibly traumatic behavior Children don't deserve to suffer trauma for adults' feelings of togetherness. They're more worthy of protection than predators. A healthy family is not built on the backs of abuse survivors expected to live their lives in silence without justice, support, or protection baamilk * to-Price ladyfatmouse We are that's why a lot of the generations before us don't like us clarknokent Facts, as call them out on their shit soon as we find out. Or let it be known that we not going to stuff they're gonna be at yourunclesatan one other thing don't limit your vigilance to men. female abusers almost never get caught, reported, or even spoken of. i never got help because everybody assumed that a mother was incapable of sexually abusing her own kids. nobody was looking out for me or my brothers and if they had been, they would have automatically suspected my dad who never lifted a finger to harm us. the nurturing gentle woman stereotype/gender role held in place by sexism allows abusers to get away with everything - don't buy into it and don't assume that women can't be abusers too root out every abuser in your family, even if they 're women.

armitageadoration: maaarine: @MariliaSavvides And men make fun of women for travelling in packs. Sighs. Seriously, if you see this happening and you can speak up…do. If you are unable see if you can find someone who will help. : Marilia Savvides @MariliaSavvides Suivre Was on a train from Cambridge earlier. Two young girls with beautiful face paint walked into my carriage and sat down about half an hour into the journey. /A couple of mins later this man walked in and sat next to them even though the carriage was empty with plenty of empty seats Traduire le Tweet 23:53-10 juin 2018 Marilia Savvides MariliaSavvides 12 h Immediately my brain went "red flag" so I moved to an empty single seat next to them. He proceeded to talk at them for ages. Girls visibly uncomfortable. He was in his 50s. Telling all kinds of weird stories, interrupting these kids, askinig them what they're doing etc Traduire le Tweet 09 187 2,1 k Marilia Savvides MariliaSavvides 12 h I'm eavesdropping and I realise he's followed them from another carriage. These girls are being SO polite due to sheer fear and I am livid. When he asks them where they go to uni and they just keep saying London he laughs and says "alright you don't want to tell me, fine" Traduire le Tweet Marilia Savvides MariliaSavvides 12 h Guilt tripping them into telling him details. So l extra politely asked him if it was time for the girls to just hang out and for him to move on. Mate, he TURNED on me so fast. Stood up to his full height and ranted at me for a few minutes Traduire le Tweet 09 187 2,4 k Marilia Savvides @MariliaSavvides 12 h "I'm not some weirdo, I'm a good bloke, I'll call the police on you etc." Friends, not one other person spoke up. I remained extra sweet, which pissed me off so much, because here l am managing a creep's feelings in case he turns violent. Traduire le Tweet Marilia Savvides @MariliaSavvides 12 h He ranted at me for a few minutes, got really aggressive and then eventually left, all the while whining like l'd ruined HIS fucking day because "he's not done anything wrong" and it's "none of my business" Traduire le Tweet 9 11 t 163 24k Marilia Savvides @MariliaSavvides 12 h As soon as he left these girls turned to me and were like THANK YOU we were figuring out how to run. Long story short, predators are master manipulators and prey on young women who are afraid of seeming rude and setting creepy men off. If you see something SAY something Traduire le Tweet Marilia Savvides @MariliaSavvides 12 h Girls and I spent 10mins after having a coffee and a cigarette outside until he cleared out of the station. We're insta friends nowand I'm just SO ANGRY that we live in a world where we're all just navigating men's entitlement and their weird feelings. The end. Traduire le Tweet Marilia Savvides @MariliaSavvides 12 h I obviously also spent 10 mins telling them that it's ok to trust your instincts and not to feel like you're being mean if a dude is trying to make you feel guilty. They owed him NOTHING Traduire le Tweet armitageadoration: maaarine: @MariliaSavvides And men make fun of women for travelling in packs. Sighs.

Aged 19, Carey was discovered by Tommy Mottola, boss of the multi-national Columbia label. her he married her and he helped mould her into a superstar covered by "Alot of young women relate to these e signed her. introspective, really honest moments about childhood and overcomind After the rise came the inevitable fall: divorce, a (sort of) nervous breakdown, relative failure and ridicule. Finally, there is redemption via a musical renaissance culminating in her 10th album, The Emancipation Of Mimi. The only constant in the morality tale that is her life has been the constant sneering: she's dull, she's dim, she's a diva. "I don't understand that," she admits. "It's a sexist thing, honestly. If a man, say Mick Jagger, is regarded as a sex symbol- not that I'm calling myself a sex symbol, perish the thought - do people doubt that he writes and sings his songs as they do me? I bring the melody, I bring the concept and I bring the lyrics to my songs. I've always been fully involved in my music. Always." That may not be in doubt. Less clear is why she should be so staggeringly popular. After all, others have the looks and the songs and who wouldn't relish being greeted by a platoon of three-foot candles? "I don't know," she confesses. I've worked very hard, but because of my songwriting my fans relate to me on another level. They hear the personal songs such as Looking In from Daydream, Close My Eyes and Outside fronm Butterfly or Petals from Rainbow where I talk about things that have happened to me. A lot of young women relate to these introspective, really honest moments about childhood and overcoming difficulties. That's whyI have such a connection with my fans. "When people say 'your song got me through a moment of my life', that the validation, the real moment of glory, because you've actually touc somebody's life. I always said that if I became famous, it would validate my existence. It didn't. Instead, the fans compel me to keep going Those fans were desperately needed in her darkest hour. After a lavish ceremony in 1993, her marriage to the domineering Mottola soon turned sour "When you're married to someone who's also the head of your label; when his best friend is your lawyer and his lawyer; when your manager used to work for him and when everybody around you is on s payroll feat. What I'm really proud of is that I paid for half of everything in our mansion, down to the lighting bills and the water in the refrigerator. I knoww that I was never kept by anybody. Overall though, I really do look at what happened as a blessing because I had to go through everything so I could write about it and other people could find inspiration. I had to stop with all the worrying and rise above all the negativity that person had brought to my life and to the people around me. icult situation.

Having followed her wallet rather than her instinct, Carey was soon paid off and moved on. "Anybody would have taken that deal, but now I realise that Virgin weren't equipped to deal with the type of music I make." ract in istory. Her Virgin album, Glitter, was released on When she re-surfaced with 2002's Charmbracelet, "that whole moment was about this supposed breakdown. People wanted me to talk about it and to cry on television with Oprah. People were whispering 'be vulnerable in my ear. People cloud your perceptions sometimes especially when youu don't want them to think you're a difficult diva. Ultimately, you have to trust your gut The joyous experience that was recording The Emancipation Of Mimi (Mimi is her pet name) has completed her recovery. "I'm in the best state I've ever been in. I'm in a great moment. I'm very excited and it's a really great time for me." Not bad going for a woman who, when she isn't demanding red carpets, three-foot candles and breaking fingernails, legendarily refuses to use stairs. "Yeah right," she giggles. "I'm the complete opposite. Actually I've been stuck in elevators in Germany, in Japan and in my own apartment close to where the World Trade Center used to be, so I really, really hate elevators. "But I go in them when I have to. Here in Britain, the elevators seem to be much smaller than in America, so it gets me feeling even more uneasy. All the time I'm saying can't we just take the stairs?' I'm always about stairs unless it's 20 flights, l even use stairs when I'm in my heels.

bonnetapplebum: bonnetapplebum: micdotcom: Black mom nails the problem with dads posing in prom photos with guns Ivery Justivery is sick of seeing these photos, so she took to Facebook to say why she’s over it. It’s traumatizing and reinforces the objectification of women. A lot of people on Facebook agreed, but after some said she was taking the “joke” too seriously, Ivery edited her post with another sharp point. Men spend decades using and disrespecting women and consequently teach those habits to the next generation of boys. Then wonder why “their” girls need protection in the first place. ^Because our black fathers and brothers and cousins love telling us to watch out all while growing up, instead of just teaching the boys and being a good example of how to treat black women in the first place. Then they wonder why so much of the younger male generation “ain’t shit.” #ThisIsWhy : Ivery Justivery added 3 new photos- with Swim King 19 hrs This post is dedicated to dad's with guns Titled: I WISH YOU FUCKING WOULD I understand you may have lived your life as a young man, young, dumb, and horny..... looking to get your little Peen wet, by any means necessary And You lived years Void of respect for young women.. until that beautiful day your daughter was born Now that you have a daughter, and youve "seen the error of your ways", you may be afraid that some of that energy you put into breaking girls hearts, damaging many men's daughters..... will come back to you in some way I get it. But What you NOT gon do is....pull a gun or any type of weapon out on MY son because of your fear of karma. I know we want to protect our daughters but we won't do that by instilling fear in our sons because you have yet to take accountability and heal from being a fuck boy.. so you think all young men are like that. Some people actually raise their man child to be respectable young men So, don't do it. Signed, A Black Mama Protecting her Son #WeGotGunsToo #ProtectOurSons #IWishYou FuckinWould bonnetapplebum: bonnetapplebum: micdotcom: Black mom nails the problem with dads posing in prom photos with guns Ivery Justivery is sick of seeing these photos, so she took to Facebook to say why she’s over it. It’s traumatizing and reinforces the objectification of women. A lot of people on Facebook agreed, but after some said she was taking the “joke” too seriously, Ivery edited her post with another sharp point.

history-is-poetry: Madeleine Albright ArticleGloria Steinmen ArticleMillennial women: we are a threat to Hilary’s campaign. Over the last two days two popular feminists have made statements insulting and berating those that identify as women for not supporting Hilary. It has become clear that they are trying to guilt us for our convictions. The first quote from Madeline Albright is thrown around a lot as a guilt tactic. She’s suggesting that as a woman I have an inane responsibility to vote for another woman, no matter what my personal beliefs or convictions are. This is not only insulting to female supporters of other candidates, but insulting to Hilary and her current supporters. If Hilary wins people will try it say it was only because she’s a woman. If you support Hilary it’s because you’re blindly voting on gender. You don’t have a brain, mind, or opinions other than whether or not you’re voting for a woman. The 2nd quote is from Gloria Steinem. Gloria was asked why young women seemed to be supporting Bernie Sanders more in the polls. Steinem had the audacity to claim that it was not only because we want to impress men, but ALSO because we aren’t “activists” yet. Are you kidding me? An acclaimed feminist is quoting the rhetoric that women do something for the soul purpose of impressing boys? Not only is that extremely sexist and cisheteronormative; but its the same sentiment that women have been fighting against for years. Its the same thought process that female sport fans/players exist solely to impress guys. That girls go to college to find husband’s. Suggesting that young adult female voters are too incompetent to learn about candidates and to make an informed objective decision is absolutely ridiculous. Furthermore, Bernie Sanders is advocating for very progressive change. So to suggest his supporters aren’t true activists yet is so extremely obtuse and ageist. So young people: I’d like to remind you that you’re a threat. The Clinton campaign knows that as young feminists we may feel guilty not voting for a woman. Stand with your convictions. Whether you’re a Hilary supporter or a Bernie supporter know that your vote is more. Its more than voting on gender, and its more than voting to impress men. It’s voting to see the kind of country that reflects your values and political beliefs. Ignore the impending smear campaign against us that is ahead. : "So it's most women by the standard of most men, because they re going to get more activistas theyget older.
