Bad, Bill Cosby, and Donald Trump: Wagatwe Sara Wanjuki 3 hrs I won't say "Me, too." Partially because most of you know that' already. But mostly because we shouldn't have to "out" ourselves as survivors Because men have *always* seen the gendered violence happening around them (and/or being perpetrated by them)-they just haven't done anything about it. Because it shouldn't matter how many women, femmes, and gender neutral & non- conforming folk speak their truths. Post by @wagatwe. This is not to say that MeToo is a bad thing at all; just that, once again, the burden falls on the oppressed group (people who have been assaulted-harassed) to appeal to the moral sense of their oppressors. Also, to clarify, the emphasis on men in this post is not meant to imply that men cannot be raped or assaulted. Here’s a longer quote I really liked about all this: “Before Weinstein’s alleged sexual misconduct, it was Donald Trump’s. Before Trump, there was Bill Cosby and his half-century of woman accusers. Woody Allen, though determinedly sticking around in Hollywood, has been publicly accused by his own daughter of sexual abuse on a number of occasions. There are just no excuses anymore. We all know that sexual misconduct is a widespread epidemic in our world. So, why are we still asking women and other survivors to rip open their traumas to prove to us there is a problem we already know exists? And when will the problem finally be laid at the feet of those responsible to solve, instead of burdening survivors who have already endured so much?” It is not our responsibility to rip open our wounds and expose our trauma in a solidarity ritual just so you can finally acknowledge there is a problem with men’s violence toward women. We have been screaming into a void for centuries; I’m fairly certain one more round of begging isn’t going to convince you the problem exists if you haven’t already accepted it. For those people who have already used the MeToo hashtag to create some solidarity around their expeirences, or to heal some of their unacknowledged trauma: it is absolutely your right to do that. But just once I would like to see us NOT asking for women, or other oppressed people, to solve a problem that disproportionately affects us. We have already been through enough — we cannot solve your sickness of sexual violence too.” - Matilda Dixon-Smith @matildadixonsmith, “Will We Ever Stop Asking Women And Survivors To Fix Rape Culture?”

Apparently, Life, and Memes: Wendy Williams ls Reportedly Pissed Over Angie Martinez's New Talk Show: "I Can't Believe That B*tch ls Getting A Show" 13 @balleralert Wendy Williams Is Reportedly Pissed Over Angie Martinez’s New Talk Show: “I Can't Believe That B*tch Is Getting A Show” - blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ WendyWilliams has reportedly been on edge since Daily Mail released a report accusing her husband of living a double life. Apparently, she hasn’t been the same since the news broke, but when she found out that her old radio rival, Angie Martinez, landed a talk show with her syndication company, she reportedly went ballistic. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to Daily Mail, in a lunch meeting with her husband, and execs from her production company, Williams burst into tears after hearing that Debmar-Mercury would be partnering with Martinez for a talk show pilot. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Sources tell the publication that screaming was heard from the back of the restaurant, with Williams’ husband yelling: “this is some bullsh*t!” Although the execs tried to convince the couple that there would not be a conflict of interest between the two shows, the two were enraged. Williams reportedly told her team, “I can’t believe that b*tch is getting a show with them. This is such a betrayal.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, sources close to Williams believe her big blow up is largely in part due to the rest of the drama that is going on in her life. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “No one is sure whether she already knew of Kevin’s affair or was shocked by the news,” the source said. “Whatever the case, she is more embarrassed the veil has been lifted off her life. The woman who gossips about everyone else’s life for a living is a now making headlines of her own.”

Crazy, Crying, and Memes: Student Stabbed To Death By Bullied Classmate at Bronx High School @balleralert Matthew McCree l Cedeno Student Stabbed To Death By Bullied Classmate at Bronx High School – blogged by @Msjennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On Wednesday, a high school elective history class turned into a fatal tragedy after a bullied teen attacked one of his tormenters. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to NY Daily News, AbelCedeno, 18, had become a victim of taunting and bulling on the first day of high school. However, it all came to an end when Cedeno arrived, armed with a switchblade, and stabbed 15-year-old MatthewMcCree to death. He also slashed a second teen, turning the scene into a bloody tragedy. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Cedeno just “went crazy,” a 16-year-old witness said of the incident. “Everybody just stood back. A few of them were holding Matthew. A few of them were holding towels on the wound. All the kids were crying and screaming.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The bloody melee occurred after McCree flicked a pencil at Cedeno, sparking his fatal stabbing spree. McCree was rushed to a local hospital, where he was later pronounced dead. The second teen was taken to the same hospital, where he remains in critical condition. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In turn, Cedeno was arrested and charged with murder, attempted murder, manslaughter, attempted manslaughter, assault and criminal possession of a weapon. He told officials that he stabbed the two students because they had been “harassing him for awhile.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “All our hearts are heavy right now,” Mayor Bill de Blasio said of the incident. “My heart goes out to the families who have been affected by this tragedy. It’s unacceptable to ever lose a child to violence in a school building.”
