In regards to my last post I'm thankful for the support I received from everyone. Even in the midst some comments directed towards me to refrain from speaking up I choose not to. I will not be silent anymore about what happens to me.
If you question if its harassment, don't. Accept what happened and speak up.
If they're your significant other, best friend, parent/guardian, friend, or even a random stranger remove the relationship label and validate how you felt within the situation.
An apology isn't enough. There is no excuse! Its unacceptable. It doesn't matter what I was wearing. It doesn't matter if I was drunk. It doesn't matter if speaking up leaves him/her ashamed or devistated. Its not about them. They need to learn their lesson and they won't learn by silence. They weren't ashamed when they planned it in their minds and did it. I will not be silent. I'm done being silent. I'm being afraid of opposing comments or being afraid of my oppressor. I am more than flesh. I am human, with feelings and a spirit. If it's not consensual then it's not right!
The change starts with us sharing our stories. With us listening and believing each other. With us educating and protecting ourselves and each other. We are a community and a family. Men and women, gay, lesbian, straight, trans, cisgender, whatever you identify as we need to stick together. I will be the light and light way from right and wrong. I will shine the light so others can see.

Hello everyone! Sorry I’ve been away for a little while. Last weekend my band @truevioletband performed at the Fonda theatre in Los Angeles. It was a high vibration experience and I really cleansed the soul with some amazing energy & the music 🎶 please enjoy this snap from our show 💕

I cant stop thinking about this movie.
We saw it on Sunday and I never thought I’d feel this way about a superhero film. There, I outted myself. I’m an 80 year old in a millennial human suit who (for the most part sans this) would rather see people just talk to each other than experience explosions, weapons and kicks at mind-numbing speed. But this felt different. What an incredible feat of visual divinity, soul pumping rhythm —not just in music but in storytelling— and PROFOUND talent onscreen and off. MBJ for real. Why you gotta do us like that?! I’ve never felt that much for a villain before. And ALL the WOMEN in this film?!?! Oh my goddess, hallelujah amen!
The feels. So many feels. Go see it.
I also want to add: my top favorite films of the past year to now (and forever) have been Hidden Figures, Get Out, and now Black Panther because of the sheer talent, brilliance and hard work evident in all three. Just saying. It’s truth + imagination at its finest.

At our last presentation we talked a little bit about micro aggressions — everyday verbal, nonverbal, and environmental slights, snubs, or insults, whether intentional or unintentional, which communicate hostile, derogatory, or negative messages to target persons based solely upon their marginalized group membership.

In the presence of student protesters, including those from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, Florida lawmakers voted against taking up a measure that would prevent the sale and possession of "assault" weapons. In the wake of the Parkland shooting, in which an AR-15 rifle was used, Rep. Kionne McGhee had tried to pull the bill out of committee so it could be heard on the House floor, but the final vote was 36-71 against doing so. (📸: AP, Reuters) #repost @buzzfeednews
