So, as Stephanie said, there are a number of things that make me who I am. I am also a researcher. I am a wife, and a daughter, and a sister, and a friend. I believe that a great Hope exists. I feel as though I am a survivor most days, but sometimes this world..

http://jeffbethke.com/a-few-thoughts-on-women-men-porn-sexual-assault I don’t entirely agree with Jefferson Bethke’s position on sex and pornography, but I do appreciate the rest of this video.

A friend recently posted an article titled “Modesty, Beauty and Men.  What Should We Care?”. Here are some of my thoughts on the article: Unfortunately, I find this article really problematic in a lot of ways. I think it’s definitely a very conservative article that leaves out (what most people now accept as fact) that..

Today is SlutWalk Toronto. I’m not there for a whole hoax of reasons, but some day I will be. I found myself thinking of the speech I gave at SlutWalk Winnipeg in 2012. There is so much more that I wish I could have said back then, and even more that I’d add to it..

I sometimes feel as though I drive people in my life absolutely insane with the amount of attention that I pay to specific word usage. I may have said in a previous piece, but typically when I’m involved in a conversation, I am paying attention to two things: “what is the meaning of what is..

On May 22nd, 2011, I sat in a church in Zimbabwe and became a Christian. And then on May 22nd, 2013, I found out that I was accepted to the World Vision CIDA Internship posting in Zimbabwe.   I’ve been missing Zimbabwe a lot since I got home. Some days, I wouldn’t trade the luxuries..

Name: Stacey Noel Ingram How I know/heard about them: I went to school with Stacey for a year, but didn’t really get to know her until after, when she had already graduated from Booth. We chatted on FaceBook for a while, and then ended up going and having “coffee”, and our friendship grew from there…

It makes me sad when people use hurtful words to begin with. When they’re used out of context, it hurts more. When they’re used out of context so much that people forget that they’re hurtful in the first place, or worse yet, are completely ignorant as to what they’re actually saying – that’s a problem…

      A comment someone made on here was interesting to me. “how about ‘guys have to stop calling girls sluts and whores.  It just makes it ok for you to call each other sluts and whores.’  how about that, instead of placing the blame on the victims of patriarchy.  I mean she’s absolutely..

In September of 2012, I made a speech at SlutWalk Winnipeg. The speech was about a lot of things, not least of all my experiences with victim-blaming. I spoke about hot the perpetrator blamed me (because my “body language was asking for it”). I spoke about how law enforcement blamed me (because “my social media..
