Hi there! I decided to make this blog as a part of my Personal Action project for my Rape and Sexual course at SUNY New Paltz. This has become so much more than just a project however. I would really like to challenge the idea that we should all stay silent about our rapes. Rape is not inevitable but if we don't speak about our experiences how will we ever expect our society to change? I encourage everyone to share their stories here if you feel comfortable, please submit and ask questions I will answer every single question I receive. Before you share please read about some of the feelings that may arise from recounting your story. Also feel free to read about my story! Thank you all so much, together we can make a difference!

one of the best lessons you can learn is that you’re valuable and worthy just because you exist. not because of your productivity. or your qualities. or because of how many people like you. or how close you are to societal understandings of attractiveness or success. but just because you are you.

My therapist asked me to create something “motivating” so I made these.

lol.

I really love these, and I reblog them every single time. Some of you don’t realize how easy it’s to forget to do some of those stuff or how hard they can be some days.

I actually forget to do about half this on the worst days. 100% printing these out.

"If you asked your girlfriend, “Do you want a Hawaiian vacation for your birthday?” and she didn’t say anything, would you buy plane tickets? If you asked someone at the grocery store, “I only have one item, do you mind if I check out ahead of you?” and they stared determinedly into space, would you cut in front of them? Why is it that “you didn’t say no” applies only to sex?"
