Police officers rescued the little pup from an abusive owner. And then one adopted her.
  3. I fight Rape Culture because
    When I told my ex boyfriend about my rape
    He ‘forgave’ me.

    I fight Rape Culture because
    I saw my baby sister age overnight
    As she told me about her best friend getting molested.

    I fight Rape Culture because
    My closest friend was abused as a child
    And he told nobody but me.
    It took him 13 years to open up.

    I fight Rape Culture because
    My friends admit to letting their partners fuck them when they don’t want it
    Then laugh it off as typical male behaviour.

    I fight Rape Culture because
    Saying that you’re raping someone is perfectly acceptable
    If you’re playing a video game.

    I fight Rape Culture because
    Men tell me they are insulted when women walking in front of them start to walk faster.
    As if their ego is more important than our safety.

    I fight Rape Culture because
    If I tell somebody their rape joke isn’t funny
    I am told that I’m uptight.

Ewan McGregor on “Trainspotting”
Danny Boyle (1996)

    I am trying to see things in perspective.
    My dog wants a bite of my peanut butter
    chocolate chip bagel. I know she cannot
    have this, because chocolate makes dogs
    very sick. My dog does not understand this.
    She pouts and wraps herself around my leg
    like a scarf and purrs and tries to convince me
    to give her just a tiny bit. When I do not give in,
    she eventually gives up and lays in the corner,
    under the piano, drooping and sad. I hope the
    universe has my best interest in mind like I have
    my dogs. When I want something with my whole
    being, and the universe withholds it from me,
    I hope the universe thinks to herself: "Silly girl.
    She thinks this is what she wants, but she
    does not understand how it will hurt.
