honey, super man hood rules...bill cosby has raped women and a bunch of other men of great fame have & are raping girl-children and they are lauded and paid...i didnt just survive abuse, i became a beast of my own self worth bec i learned at age 6, that a girlchild's words & life didnt matter to the outside world...it taught me to always operate from a place of power & truth...
women saying cut "the misognist denial: a woman's life has been destroyed, now this man will pay the cost" is what women should be screaming from the rafters. so keep saying 'no' to the bullshit and 'yes' to a woman's word.
don't sit in a fricking restauraunt w/some man talking abt how great r. kelly's concert was or woody allen's last film...call him on that bullshit, ask him how he'd feel if that had been his daughter or sister, then get up and walk out...
when more of us start honoring ourselves and each other over what some man or self-hating woman might say abt us, then we can all have some conversations abt changing some laws & protecting those who are brave enuf to come forward...stay righteous & true, Al-nisa Petty ...i gotchu...xoxoxo
