I saw this awesome bumper sticker on a truck

I saw this awesome bumper sticker on a truck in a parking lot today. It made me feel lighter, better, to randomly see a positive message out there.

I think it’s true, and we need to keep fighting for rights and equality for all oppressed groups, including #LGBTQIA, PoC, disabilities of all kinds; an end to violence and rape, sexual assault and child abuse and torture – prevention, and full belief, support, and help for survivors when it does happen; better gun laws; and just…a kinder, more compassionate, living world, even when other people oppose us. Especially when they do. (Though it’s also important to practice self-care.) #BelieveSurvivors #MeToo #rapeculture

As a fellow survivor, I believe, hear, and stand with Dr. Christine Blasey Ford.

As a fellow survivor, I believe, hear, and stand with Dr. Christine Blasey Ford. I applaud her courage and strength in speaking out in a society that consistently blames, does not believe, and fails to support survivors and women. In a society that values men and their power over the lives, safety, and mental health of women and other survivors.

All of the attacks on Dr. Christine Blasey Ford are yet another example of our #rapeculture where men, and even some women, believe that it is okay to verbally attack, threaten, and attempt to discredit a brave woman speaking her truth. This lack of compassion, empathy, and humanity needs to stop. #BelieveSurvivors

Via @huffpostwomen – “I am here today not because I want to be. I am terrified. I am here because I believe it is my civic duty to tell you what happened to me while Brett Kavanaugh and I were in high school.” ◾️ Christine Blasey Ford gives her testimony regarding her allegation that the Supreme Court nominee sexually assaulted her when they were in high school. Like Anita Hill before her, Blasey chose to wear a blue suit to the hearing today. (📷: Getty)

It takes a lot of courage and strength to speak out about rape, sexual harassment, or incest in a society that does not often believe survivors and usually blames us. Please believe survivors when we speak out.
