#MeToo - This week has triggered the fuck out of me. Confused, angry, sad, bitter, sick, numb. I can feel the collective pain of everyone that has had to experience this. I can attest to what it’s like to be a young actress living in Hollywood - your boundaries, morals and ethics are tested at every opportunity. You have to turn a blind eye to so much shit that doesn’t sit right. I have my own stream of fucked up stories I could reel off but it doesn’t feel good or helpful. One awful incident not long ago in England (that I believed I had ‘attracted’ ) led me to seek out therapy to work through my relationship with the masculine, which has served me in amazing ways and continues to do so - but it makes me angry that we have to experience such contrast in order to begin to do this healing. We shouldn’t need to. How many women do you know actively working on ‘being able to trust men again’? Fucking EVERYONE! It is an epidemic.
This is a result of the sick society we live in, a culture that WE created. We tell women they need to look sexy, then we slut shame them and tell them they were asking for it. We tell men they need to be big strong and powerful, and then condemn them for using their power to dominate others and take advantage.
We live in a world where people do not know how to love each other because we have not learned how to love ourselves. Where people get abused, then go out into the world and abuse other people, objectify them, and use them to try and make themselves feel whole.
Man or woman, NO means fucking no. Everyone knows someone that this has happened to. Every man knows a woman that this has happened to. This also happens to 1 in 6 men WHICH ISN’T BEING TALKED ABOUT ENOUGH because of how society views the masculine and feminine - and this is part of the global challenge we face. Please keep the faith. Please don’t close your heart, people. We can do better than this. We can be better. ❤️
