Too Many #MeToo 's Floating Around. Take Heart that though We may Hurt, We are not this pain. Someone once said, There is No Right Way to be a Woman And it's truth... Has there ever been a Woman in the history of the World who would not be judged in some way? Too delicate Too tough Too pretty to keep your hands off Too...dayum... bossy Too free Too needy Too jealous Too self-sufficient Too smart Too smart mouthed Too much like your mama Too flat chested Too ordinary Too much, just too too much We have no example of perfect Because if we are Too Perfect 👌🏽 We are penalized for that too. Too fake, Too hard to keep up with, Too tough to please and my favorite "Too Crazy" (see Hallie Berry) ... There are history books full of nice white men. Memorialized for their accomplishments, money and more recently their charismatic leadership. Name a woman who is universally seen as accomplished, rich and yet charismatic? ... And so...yeah....me too. Her too. Us too. Because it's just too easy for us to be dressed too sexy. Or out too late. We will be judged for what we did and what we failed to do. And at the end of it all...he will be like Brock Turner --- he will be too sympathized with...and set free too easily. I wrote those letters yesterday... never have five letters carried so much weight and baggage. It's not emotional....it's just like "SMDH"...yeah, me too. ... So for all the women "me-too-ing" I am holding space For our Magic & our Heart, and above all else, Our Humanity. #HimThough #everydaysexism #intersectionalfeminism

#metoo Drawing was too intricate. Writing was too simple. Printing seemed a better expression of frustration. ▪️ There are so many stories out there from so many people. Heartbreaking. Infuriating. Terrifying. Familiar. All I can think is that if this movement can help to open eyes and create dialogue, I should be open and honest and a part of it. Just because someone hasn't posted "me too", please don't assume they haven't experienced sexual harassment or assault. Survivors owe nothing.

#MeToo #YoTambien Ver y leer las diferentes publicaciones de mujeres y personas no-binarias sobre sus experiencias de violación, asalto sexual y acoso sexual fue doloroso y conmovedor. Creo que ampliar y unir nuestras voces para denunciar la violencia de género es un acto valiente y valioso. Pero este problema no lo solucionan las mujeres y no es sobre ellas que debe caer, como siempre, la responsabilidad de visibilizar y transformar algo que es más que obvio. En mis redes sociales y en general a mi alrededor fueron muy pocos los hombres (incluso no solo los hombres cis) los que no dijeron ni una sola palabra sobre el#YoTambien. Muy pocos respondieron nada frente a los miles de voces que decían “sí, también he sido víctima”. Personalmente, sí exijo de los hombres a mi alrededor que se unan a solucionar estas violencias poniéndole freno a la cultura de la violación y al sexismo. Junto con @vivianmd12 recopilamos este “conjunto de acciones urgentes” para hombres. Muchas de estas reflexiones circulan en inglés en páginas de internet y redes sociales. Nos encargamos de traducirlas para que quienes hablen español las puedan tener al alcance de la mano. #colombia #mexico #peru #Ecuador #España #Latinoamerica #California #bayarea #eastbay #guatemala #elsalvador #bolivia #argentina #uruguay #paraguay #chile #americalatina #latina #latino #sexism #everydaysexism #machismo #feminismo #intersectionalfeminism

#MeToo I am tired of saying, “Me too.” I am tired of myself and fellow survivors retraumatizing ourselves in order to bring validation to our very real experiences. Most of all, I am tired of the onus for change always being placed on victims — and on women — instead of addressing the men who are most often the perpetrators of sexual violence against them. Eradicating sexual assault will never be achieved by survivors alone — because they aren't the ones who cause it in the first place. We can't expect to end rape culture on the backs of survivors alone anymore. Tweeting #MeToo isn't enough. Please read and share this story I wrote on how we all can help *actively* end sexual violence. (Link in bio.)
