I wrote a letter to my former pastors who ignored the abuse I reported to them eighteen years ago, and I posted it on the review section of the churches that employ them.

All day yesterday, I felt badly for @Northroadchurch because I thought...

they were being pulled into something that happened so long ago.
This church just happens to be within walking distance of my house, and they just happened to hire the youth pastor from my former church who ignored my abuse and let my abuser continue to work with students.

I've had a day to sit on this, but I have to say this. @TeenVogue you and the doctor that wrote this op-ed are living in a delusional fantasy. teenvogue.com/story/why-sex-…
This weekend, I sat in a hospital as I watched a #survivor I support strung out, watching the nurses and doctors bring her back to life because she OD'd. This woman has been trafficked, exploited, & ended up self-prostituting to support her drug addiction.
She can't kick her addiction because every time she sobers up, the horror stories flood her brain. Images and memories of what happened to her body.

I am #disabled I am #trans I am #queer I am a #survivor

But most obviously, I am #white

And because of the most obvious part of who I am, I will always be elevated over the people of color in every single one of my communities.
This is true for every single white person who is part of any one or multiple marginalized groups.

Our voices are always heard first and foremost. Yet the racial disparity in our communities is rarely, if ever, discussed.
So often, white people dominate and push ourselves to the for front of each of our #communities

We make spaces that should be open to everyone, only truly welcoming to white people. Instead of boosting the voices of our most marginalized, we silence them

I feel anxious for my children because tomorrow if mob surrounds them and asks, “Are you a Hindu or a Muslim?” …they will have no answer, says actor #NaseeruddinShah

#Tathya with Apoorvanand
In the context of the Sajjan Kumar conviction in the 1984 genocidal violence against Sikhs, we need to rethink about other incidents of violence that have happened in the country, says Prof. Apoorvanand.
We wish you a #MerryChristmas with the Christian Qawwals of Delhi.
"People look at me and wonder who I really am. I have only one answer for them. I am you," says Bernard Rufus, also known as Sahil Sufi Nizam, a popular singer of Christian Qawwalis.

1/ @TheTakeaway @tanzinavega really disappointed you had this guest on a show peddling controversial theories that weaponize the failures of the #criminaljusticesystem #racism and #massincarceration against survivors of #domesticviolence and #coercivecontrol.
2/#VAWAs failures lie not only in its non-holistic, non-systemic approach to addressing #DV—not as #coercivecontrol and not in coordination with child safety risks, as it should be—but also in its methodology, assumptions, implementation etc. @thetakeaway @tanzinavega
3/Just because #VAWA is flawed doesn’t mean you throw the baby out with the bath water. Her theories are dangerous to #survivors and hide its misogynist underpinnings as they center #abuser needs over #survivor and #child #safety, #stability #strength. @TheTakeaway @tanzinavega

I went to bed feeling betrayed--perhaps even enraged. I woke up, still feeling betrayed--but resolved. I still believe #AnitaHill. I still believe #ChristineBlaseyFord I still believe #survivors #women They have knocked us down, but not out. I still believe in the power of us.
Our perpetrators tried to stifle our voices too--and, WE ARE NOT GOING BACK. We will not be silenced or moved. Today, survivors will keep organizing, sharing our painful and hard truths until the very last hour, and then we'll take our fight to the ballot box.
Survivors matter and we do vote--and run for office too! We have been ignored, but not silenced #midterms A vote to support #Kavanaugh confirms more than one man, to the highest court in the land, you are also confirming #privilege #entitlement #injustice

Court in #Egypt sentence women rights advocate #AmalFathy for 2.5 years for 'Fake News' after sharing sexual harassment experience via Facebook post. #FreeAmalFathy #FreeAmalFathy theguardian.com/world/2018/sep…
The conviction of Amal Fathy comes after Egypt clamped down on women who complain of sexual assault. Simply reporting rape or assault can land women in prison and labeled as terrorists. #FreeAmalFathy on.wsj.com/2NMhKk6
“In a UN survey in 2013, 99% of Egyptian women reported that they had experienced some form of sexual harassment. Cairo was described as the “most dangerous megacity in the world for women” in a 2017 Thomson Reuters Foundation poll.” . #FreeAmalFathy gu.com/p/9ga2n/stw

@SurvivorsnetBtn @RASASC_London @survivorstrust @Danvers07943910 @ObjectUK @BrightonSurvivorsNET “In the light of a highly disturbing increase of #transphobia locally & nationally…” IF everything anybody says or does is #transphobia, of course you can say it is rising. Any reputable statistics?
@SurvivorsnetBtn @RASASC_London @survivorstrust @Danvers07943910 @ObjectUK “…so the date @Womans_Place_UK event feels like a concerted effort to make #trans ppl, & particularly #transwomen, feel #intimidated and #invalidated” Is it the position of SN that the sensitivities of #transwomen mean that #democracy should be suspended any time they say so?
