Foxtrot kept down his bland dinner of chicken and rice. I asked him if he barfed this morning because he knew I was planning to give him a bath today. I’m not saying he’s guilty, but that look guys...

The time I became a feminist...
.
.
People often ask me what made me so passionate about women’s empowerment and ending gender-based violence and to be honest I’m not really sure. Maybe it was the day I became a father to a little girl and I knew I couldn’t save her from a patriarchal society. Maybe it was the day my closest loved ones and friends disclosed to me they were sexually assaulted and felt like no one would believe them. Maybe it was when I worked as a volunteer coordinator for a domestic violence/sexual assault center and heard the countless stories of trauma from survivors and their loved ones. Maybe it’s when I look out today and see that the majority of crime and violence against women is committed at the hands of man. To be honest I can’t say when I became so passionate about this. .
.
Passion is a funny thing because some folks can pin point a time and place when they got passionate about an issue or cause but I can’t think of one moment. I can only see a collection of moments and things and people that have made me passionate about ending gender based violence. And you don’t have to have a daughter, and you don’t have to know someone who’s been assaulted (although it’s very likely you do), and you don’t have to work at a sexual assault/domestic violence center to be passionate about women’s empowerment. Because the truth is...it’s something we all should be passionate about. ✊🏾💜👸🏽 .

Oppressors and perpetrators do not get to define what is trauma to someone else. If you have experienced something that you deem to be traumatic, then that is exactly what it is, trauma.⠀
💜⠀
Only you know what it feels like to be in your body. Only you know the pain that you experience. Only you know what you will need to recover and heal. ⠀
💜⠀
If anyone has ever doubted you, or your experience related to trauma, I am sorry. Your story is valid, you are valid. Just because someone else does not believe you, does not make your experience any less valid or real. The perception of trauma is truth to your nervous system and body.⠀
💜⠀
To survivors, you are believed here. Keep on surviving. ⠀

Once again, a rapist walks free! A 17 year old accused a 27 year old man of rape in Ireland. Her thong was passed around the court by a (female!!) lawyer with the intention to prove the rape was actually consensual. Evidence that we live in such a patriarchal society that rules allow our appearance to give permission to mens misogynistic behaviour. Again, what we wear and what we look like is an excuse for men to take control over us to get what they want without any consequences... but now, we fight back. #ThisIsNotConsent #IBelieveYou #MeToo
Even naked, we’re not asking for it!
ALSO, there was a witness who saw him covering the victim’s mouth, they then asked them if everything was okay, to which the rapist told them to mind their own business. He was, however, found not guilty.

"I believe you."
Personally, I think this is one of the most powerful phrases you can say to another person. To a family member. A friend. A coworker. A patient. A perfect stranger.
• • • • • • • • • • • • • •
When you live with a chronic illness that goes undiagnosed for years, the main thing you are met with from most people (especially doctors for that time period) is doubt. Here you are explaining to people what is happening to YOU and basically they respond with doubt that you don't truly know/understand what is occuring to you or you are just flat out making it up. They doubt you and YOUR situation, despite the fact that YOU are the one living it and not them.
What's even worse is sometimes the other people's doubt seeps into your own mind and you begin doubting everything yourself. "Maybe I am just overreacting" "Maybe it is all just in my head"
"Maybe I do just have a low pain tolerance"
Sometimes it leads to people becoming so jaded that they don't even seek help or comfort from others anymore because they "know" that no one will believe them anyway so it would just be a waste of time.
I don't know why exactly it is so hard for people to believe one another on difficult subjects. Maybe it is because we can't relate, so therefore doubt is our brain's first response to something so "out there" for us. Maybe it is because we don't WANT to believe it, because we can tell it is causing the other person pain/discomfort so maybe if we doubt its existence it will not actually exist for that person.
Whatever the reason, doubt is very powerful and very hurtful at certain times. The next time someone tells you something that they are struggling with and you are about to inadvertently doubt what they are saying by suggesting that, "it might just be.../they just need to do.../they just aren't doing enough... etc" I hope you stop yourself and consider just listening and saying something about believing them. #realtalk #ibelieveyou

негатива тут хватает. поэтому, немного позитива и оптимизма в ленту.
я рада, что ты читаешь это. рада, что ты живешь. что ты имеешь возможность дышать. тебе нелегко, я знаю. но ты сможешь. у тебя есть силы, я верю в тебя. скоро ты можешь выйти из этого тумана и забудешь как большинство своих снов. ты имеешь место в моей жизни. я люблю тебя. ты мне нужен, любым. я приму тебя. ты не один. я с тобой, слышишь? я поддержу тебя всегда. мы переживаем этот ад и тебя будет ждать прекрасное будущее. ты верь и старайся.
love and speak myself. love and spek yourself •RM of BTS

This line from my story (an ongoing Rosetta stone, at link in profile), won't go away this morning. I love the intent behind the @ibelieveherireland effort, but I worry sometimes, about the use of memes in this movement (I struggle with shorthand in general, with jargon, hashtags, small things meant to illustrate big thoughts).
.
.
The latest, comparisons of scraps of fabric meant to sketch the vicious disgrace of the trial in Cork, in which a teen girl's thong was used as evidence of her supposed consent. “Clothing is not consent.” Absolutely. 100%. Translation: “The fact that I’m wearing lacy underwear, the fact that my garments are designed to be sexually enticing, no fact of what I’m wearing or not wearing, none of this gives you any rights to my body.” .
(Let me be clear - I fully support the effort, and my god, if it gives this one survivor, or any survivor, some measure of comfort and solidarity, please keep doing it. I'm not discouraging this offshoot of the movement - quite the opposite.)
.
.
Are we making our anger cute, and therefore minimizing it, allowing it to be dismissed?
.
Is the shorthand, repeated through self-creation, a manner of getting through, of breaking down concepts that should be simple to begin with, reinforcement through repetition? Or is it minimizing our anger, turning our rage into a photo-app plaything?
.
.
What do you think? .

To the #bravegirls who face down their abusers / rapists in the courts... THANK YOU... For speaking up, for speaking out and for letting us know we are not alone 🖤

Share your voice (Confessions of a Professional Patient) - new website coming soon once I feel a bit better. To the newbies- I’m katie, I have Lyme and a whole lot of other things. I know what it feels like to be torn down and dismissed by those meant to help us, and know it needs to change desperately. If you have a story regarding poor treatment by a medical professional in any way shape or form, I post your stories on the blog section of my website for people to see the severity and complexity of this issue in healthcare. You can email me at coappadvocacy@gmail.com or DM.

There is a revolution in each of us. Our feelings are valid! Our rage is valid! EVERY person suffers from rape culture. EVERY person suffers from the patriacy! #slutwalk #slutwalk2018 #consentissexy #ibelieveyou #sexworkiswork #endrapeculture @aflowerhead @bawlington_the_bard

Here’s to spontaneous sickness. Here’s to presenting cool research and finding joy in the hardness.
Here’s to British accents with wonderful Queens @ayalayala and expensive dinners. I am learning more about who I am and what I want this week and I am so grateful.
Do not conform to the world but remember that the light you are looking for is within yourself. There is not much you cannot do and there is even less that you cannot be excited for. In the midst of the green and the blues I am happy to be the pink.
I am happy and tired and exhausted and elated.
But overall I am going to keep moving 🌻
