THE PUBLIC RAPE EXPERIMENT
"A loyal TUBIAN in 2013 opened up to me and told me her story and kindly asked me to do a video raising awareness on the issue. This project was made with the best intentions and pure heart. I know it will mean something different to us all and am happy to have opened up a well needed conversation. […] I have been given a responsibility with this YouTube platform of mine and always told myself to stay true and progress towards change."
TRIGGER WARNING GUYS!
No one deserves it. It’s never the victim’s fault. Never.

Too many young women I think are harder on themselves than circumstances warrant. They are too often selling themselves short. They too often take criticism personally instead of seriously. You should take criticism seriously because you might learn something, but you can’t let it crush you. You have to be resilient enough to keep moving forward, whatever the personal setbacks and even insults that come your way might be. That takes a sense of humor about yourself and others. Believe me, this is hard-won advice I’m putting forth. It’s not like you wake up and understand this. It’s a process.
My body is mine and that means I get to decide who touches me and when. No, I don’t care if you’re my father, if I don’t want you to hug me right now you don’t get to fucking hug me and yeah until you get that through your thick skull I am going to get mad every time you try to get near me when I’ve explicitly said I don’t want to be hugged or touched. “I’m your father, I can hug you” is so fucked up I can’t even believe it came out of your mouth now leave me alone.
"Women are more likely to be attracted to personality and men are more likely to be attracted to physical appearance"
woah maybe that’s because we teach women to see men as people and we teach men to see women as objects
