*TW* So, today, I received these three emails. To those who do not know what I’ve been going through, I am being targeted by high level human traffickers and p3rn stars/cam girls/guys. Why? Because I’m exposing #TrumpsTraffickingRing. I have had multiple attempts on my life,
multiple threats against me, I have had people to rape and traffick me, I have had people k3ll several ofmy friends and some animals as a “warning to me.” I have had car wrecks that were planned for me but I narrowly avoided. I’ve had people pull off #terrorist attacks and blame
me for them (saying that if I just shut up, they wouldn’t kill people in their terrorist attacks), Ive had people get paid large sums of money by #SteveBannon and authorized by #DonaldTrump - from his campaign funds- to smear me. I’ve had people harass me nonstop since 2016.

It seems like some of you aren’t fully aware of R. Kelly’s disturbing history of sexual abuse and pedophilia. Let’s fix that.

Wonderful women, reclaiming public spaces, shattering patriarchy, one voice at a time. Going to list down some statements from the #MeToo meet up in Cross Maidan, Mumbai today.
"I thought I was overreacting, maybe I imagined that it happened to me. Now I know I was not and I have nothing to be ashamed of."
"I went through years of abuse as a child and #MeToo has been cathartic for me."

Circling back to the AdWorld's #MeToo after a while.
A grand total of 13 Men were accused, some anonymously, some openly.
Subsequent posts will examine what happened (or didn't) with them, and with the ad world in general. #TimesUp #Advertising #MeToo

After the usual "shocked" "outraged" etc. reactions - mostly from men (sidenote: seriously, though, was this truly any surprise??), the big networks distanced themselves from the perpetrators. DAN went first, with the following…
Followed quickly by Publicis.

Of course, it makes complete economic as well as PR sense to NOT have sexual harassment accused on payroll, for globally aligned and fairly well known companies…

Had an infuriating conversation with my mum’s physio today about the #MeToo movement.
As she finished her treatment for mum, as part of her usual chats with me, she said today, “I am so tired of all this drama surrounding #Sabarimala and #MeTooIndia

@IndiaMeToo #TimesUp
Excerpts: “If something happened 25 years ago, why didn’t people speak up then? Why keep quiet? All for negative publicity now.”

Perhaps because the ostracisation that existed before isn’t as vicious today. Because finally, there are people to listen.

“As long as you are dignified in your behaviour and dressing, nothing will happen.”

I was 11 when someone first touched me the wrong way. It was at my own house, I wore a half sleeved Kurta (free-sized because I was a plump kid) and jeans.

What would you tell 11yo me?

Lawd do we have a lot of unpacking to do, to cover all the lies @BradSherman told tonight.
#BradShermanLies #1 he told everyone that the accusations @MarkReed1776 brought up were absolute lies and all made up. Mark calmly told everyone all they had to do was Google. OOOF.
EIGHT of @BradSherman’s aides came forward about how toxic the environment was working for him after his longtime aide was accused of forcing a woman into a bathroom and masturbating. WTF? #METOO #Ibelievesurvivors…

#HiviteTactics The villains are trying to paint themselves as victims ahead of their arrests to make it seem like they are being wronged instead of being in the wrong 100%. #FakeNews #FalseFlag Gonna blame it on a Q follower or Trump supporter, guaranteed. #TheGreatAwakening
On the other hand, in the off chance this IS someone targeting these evil traitors with a violent form of vigilante justice, let that be a warning to all in charge of #ThePlan that #WeThePeople are growing impatient & losing faith that justice will be adequately served. #TimesUp

Um have people read the @FBI files on @SenatorMenendez because if we’re to believe all women then Menendez slept with a 16 year old girl in the Dominican Republic! This is insane the Democrats are demented. Come on New Jersey VOTE @BobHugin #Ibelievesurvivors #VoteDemsOut2018
This entire story got buried because it involved more than Menendez, many people were involved including retired officers and the FBI🙄
Who has almost $5 million dollars to pay lawyers? The one and only @SenatorMenendez was funded by big pharma to get his mistrial, with this kind of money are we really to believe a juror or two wasn’t paid off? New Jersey remains run by mobsters. Vote this fool out.

News from me: @pamelacross541 & I have been proud to serve as co-chairs of Ontario’s Provincial Roundtable on Violence Against Women. Established in 2015, the Roundtable has provided strategic advice to government on emerging issues related to #VAW. #Onpoli
Through the Roundtable’s ongoing engagement with government and sector partners, we have achieved policy and program change, including provisions in #Bill148, the Fair Workplaces and Better Jobs Act, to provide paid leave to employees who experience domestic or sexual violence.
It’s expensive not to address gender-based violence: it has impacts from health to criminal law process to the economy. Justice Canada estimates the total economic impact of domestic violence on employers annually in Canada is about $78 million. #Onpoli #MeToo

Long thread on one of my conversations with @Chinmayi in the recording studio.

2012, first time I try getting in touch with Chinmayi through my dad to sing a song for my debut movie (which unfortunately never took off). 18 then, I know nothing about the industry.
5 songs were completed. Leading director. Entire album had lyrics by VM sir. I wanted to see if Shankar Mahadevan and Chinmayi would be available and interested to sing on the track.
Aunty (Chinmayi’s mom) was very sweet to dad. She said she will convey the request to Chinmayi and that we didn’t have to worry. She will do a fab job.

Cut to recording studio. @Chinmayi comes in. I meet her in person for the first time.

At 4pm UK time, an independent review of @savechildrenuk will report. Here’s what @irinnews reported earlier this year.
#MeToo #AidToo #TimesUp…
In a @savechildrenuk press release, responding to one of several leaks about its handling of #MeToo, review lead Suzanne Shale (@ethicsconsult) said "past events may have caused distress to staff" and "we will listen to those accounts very carefully..."
The March statement, was in response to earlier reviews that had found problems in the NGO's "culture" and "failures" in the way it handled cases of sexual harassment and misconduct:…

My #MeToo story is the most harrowing account of my life. I was harrased for months continuesly by @i_saurabhkumar of @FinancialXpress in 2016. I had informed FE who hired him any way. Here is my story:
I have spoken of this before and publicly as well but never in such detail. Seeing other women giving detailed accounts has given me the push I needed to to finally show each and everything this fucking vile man did to me.
I am tweeting this anonymously for various reasons which include fear of legal trouble and also just more trauma of people asking questions about it.

It is very, very tough for women to remember accounts of when they were touched inappropriately; a ‘harmless’ hug that looks OK but makes them alone cringe.
I was 8, maybe 9. I was sleeping. My mom was supervising a recording session for her documentary. Felt a man in priestly robes feel up my privates and I woke up. Told her ‘that uncle is bad’. This was in the studio called Santhome Communications that still exists.
Maybe I was 10/11, December Music Festival, ‘respectable mama’ whose name I dont remember kept pinching my thigh throughout a concert.
I heard more gross stories of Sabha secretaries.
In retrospect, a lot of children weren’t safe around some adults.

Dear women out there
I don't know if I can do much but I want to help.
If any woman in the jurisdiction of Bombay High Court has faced sexual harassment at the workplace and wants to sue please contact me. I will not charge my fees and appear for you in your case.
Thank you everyone who's shown such great support and encouragement! I'm more motivated than ever and I will do my best to help whoever I can.
Another thing, if you see/know of someone being harassed, do not think twice before helping that person in whatever way you can. Please!
My friends and I are working on a write up about how we, as friends, family or colleagues, in our daily lives can be sensitive, listen to and help victims of sexual harassment. We will be talking to counselors, therapists, NGO workers, lawyers and doctors. Any help is appreciated

So let’s start at the beginning.

Kathryn and Ronaldo are at a nightclub in Vegas. She says he raped her that night after she explicitly said no several times.
She goes to the police in a shaken state and fills out a rape report. She refuses to state who did it and says “it’s a public figure”. Evidence is collected by Nevada police and they tell her to get an attorney because she’s dealing with a high profile person.
She gets an attorney who is inexperienced and he proposes a settlement instead of going to trial. At this point, she’s traumatized and just wants the whole thing to go away. So she tells her attorney to settle it for 900K.

I’m not blacking out. Fuck you. I don’t have to black out to be ignored. I’m black and a woman and not the right kind . I’m a specific kind of ignored anywho
I’m mitigated by oodles of privilege and Yet the constant reminder I have is two things : I’m a frigging ELEMENTAL force and that’s a REQUIREMENT
We did this already. And we’ve learned nothing . We are doing rallying cries and calls to action with no discussion that 53% of white women are fighting us

As you are saying this, Debra, media outlets are still having a field day with male survivor Jimmy Bennett for even *daring* to come forward about being allegedly assaulted by Asia Argento.
What is with y’all and lying about the believability of male/non-women survivors? Like patriarchy doesn’t also chew them up and spit them out for being ~weak enough~ to be assaulted???? Hmm? What gives?
This ~superior victim~ thing that White women have going on is not the wave and it is precisely the thing that keeps undermining the efforts of #MeToo/#TimesUp and tbh, y’all need to let that shit go because if it that isn’t base narcissism, IDK what is.

Senator Lindsey Graham cited his experience as a judge today,in angry comments after Dr Blase Ford's testimony. He didn't mention he was kicked off that job; Military Appeals Court said it was unconsitutional to be both.… #WHPDaily #Indivisible #AltGov #Law
.@LindseyGrahamSC with neither the Facts nor the Law on his side, pounds the table in angry #Kavanaugh Hearing rant, sanctimoniously citing ethics while ignoring his past ethical lapse trying to be a JAG judge & MOC at the same time… cc .@tribelaw .@RWPUSA

KAVANAUGH states in victimhood “what comes around foes around”.


Below his memo to Starr.


Kavanaugh whines about left-leaning money but he is steeped in dark money including one organization that spent millions & does not have a biz license.

@RandyRainbow nails it

Kavanaugh is "little boy screaming" because he didn't get what he wanted.

Im going to talk BTS and K-Pop and #metoo and #TimesUp and the American music industry and how all of its related in a few...
So after all that noise all day, we need to get to a problem that is just as worse - the acceptance of BTS and K-Pop as a bromide from all the changing metrics in the American music industry and its issues. It's only going to create more headache.
The American Music Industry and the rest of the entertainment industry in the last several years put their bank on the Hallu Movement - a way of seeing popular culture and technology via Korean sensibilities.

For women in the US:
1/6 are survivors of attempted rape
1/3 (54M)are survivors of sexual violence
77% don’t report
1.9% falsely accuse

I stand with a “Trinity” of brave, heroic survivors who spoke up:
Christine Blasey Ford
Deborah Ramirez
Julie Swetnick

It took me a decade of denial to realize what it was. I blamed myself & believed the lie–victims are weak. The SOL passed– I wanted the memory erased. It was tucked away safe til #MeToo

#WhyIDidntReport was validated when I told 3: 1 a trusted “ally” & he didn’t believe my word.
If this has been triggering for you in any way—please reach out
Nat’l Sexual Assault Hotline:

@RAINN has an excellent thread on resources on self care for survivors or how to support them.

I’m also here to listen. You’re not alone. #MeToo
