sheroicgemini (Sorry for profanity fam, I got a lot of passion) dang man! For those of you who don't know, Donald Trump kicked off the California GOP convention at the Hyatt Regency in Burlingame, & as expected, the event drew numerous protestors angry with the hateful rhetoric that Trump & his supporters so adamantly spread. I understand the disdain for politics and the often negative stigma they are surround by- but this is not political. This is a moral effort against a movement of racism, misogyny, bigotry, & homophobia. This is a fight for ALL of the people, rather than the limited demographic that Trump resembles. This is a fight to say that we do not accept Trumps fear tactics and efforts to "Make America Great Again." We are here to say that in no point in time has America ever truly been "great"- and he is certainly not the one to lead us there. To go back to whatever Trump believes was once great is to go back to the circumstances that led to the civil rights movement, and the leadership that created the plans of Japanese internment. To return to what Trump believes is great is to return to a world in which women seek out coat hangers before their doctors, and people of the LGBTQA+ are forced to hide behind clothes doors for fear of their very lives. To go back to what Trump believes is great is to go back to slavery, blatant sexism, violence, and legal discrimination of race and religion. Donald Trump is not going to make America great again- it never really was. WE, on the other hand, are here to make it so. WE can start on a path to making America great for the first time. Thanks to all the fabulous people I met today & the beautiful passion that is leading all of you forward in fighting the man. 🏻️ 23h

sheroicgemini Just bought her album in its entirety & tbh it's been one of the few decisions of my life that I've come out of w/ absolutely zero regret like Beyoncé you have yet against created the most beautiful womanist fairytale that speaks directly to the experiences of black women in America & forces ppl to get off their asses & recognize the deeply diminished humanity in which women of color have been oppressed under since the literal creation of our country & continue to face so severely today. Fucking LOVE YOU QUEEN 5d

sheroicgemini Super huge PSA that may just be disregarded as one of Katie's super typical rants, but this is important.
1 in 3 women will be sexually assaulted in their life time. Just recently, the statistic of 1 in 5 changed to 1 in 4 on college campuses. 75% of victims are women. 97% of perpetrators are men. 85% of cases are not reported, and the vast majority are swept under the rug in protection of sexual violators. The reason? Victims aren't taken seriously. They're asked what they were wearing, how much they'd had to drink, whether or not they said "yes" initially. The problem? That's not the POINT. The point is that we live in a society where dominance is expressed through sexual oppression. A society where power is stored within sexual violence. A society where women most commonly fall victim to this oppression and face the blame in it when seeking support.
As someone who has faced sexual abuse by someone whom I once thought cared very much about me, this month sheds light on an issue that needs to be addressed for me and every other survivor and victim past, present, and future. But this month comes every year, and still, we talk, we get angry, we get emotional, but NOTHING seems to change. The statistics get worse, more women and young girls are purchasing pepper spray and looking up the sexual assault statistics of the schools they are applying to. More women fear for their very lives in the presence of hyper-masculine dominant men at parties. More women lose trust in their schools and their local law enforcement for putting them on the stand.
Personally, I'm fucking tired of it. I'm tired of making a million Facebook posts and battling it out with idiots who find rape jokes funny. These are people's lives. These are their experiences. These are issues they face every day. It is not funny. It is not a phase. It is an issue that our society better damn well start learning to address.
Start DOING SOMETHING this #sexualassaultawarenessmonth get FREAKIN MAD, go BALLISTIC. Most of you reading this are going to college next year and you're stepping into an environment that you don't know the real hard ass danger of. Look up "The Hunting Ground" on Netflix.
