Couple of things, @sullydish...
Firstly, nice try but women will not be silent anymore, & you don’t get to tell us to shut up. Secondly, I believe @Lollardfish has already addressed this:

#TimesUp #MeToo #GTFO
Seriously, the fucking audacity of some ppl is astonishing. They never stop trying to silence survivors.

It’s incredible. The number of men accused is small compared to their victims. The number of men accused is small compared to how many men there are in Hollywood & DC.
I’m so done with this shit. Allow me to show y’all some shocking -yet not at all shocking to many of us- information.

*Trigger Warning*
In American patriarchal society, we teach our children that abuse of women is acceptable. Exhibit A:
(Just an FYI, this is probly going to be a long thread, with images & links. It might also take some time to finish. At the end, I’ll do an unroll thru thread reader for anyone who wants it.)
We teach our children that men are worth more then women. We fuel male entitlement to women, & we fuel the idea that women must be subordinate to men. We tell women that they’re responsible for how men react to them, & teach men that they are not responsible for their actions.
Exhibit B:
Exhibit C:
Remember this asshole?:

Brock Turner Is Appealing His Sexual Assault Conviction |…

When Men ‘Misremember’ Violating Women | @emmaladyrose |…
Men (& disappointingly, some women) are freaking out over some of the accusations. (The irony of accusations that women are the “hysterical” ones when the #NotAllMen crowd is currently losing their minds 🙄)
We have companies that canceled Christmas Parties b/c they feared that women would take the opportunity to accuse men who were there of harassing them; There is concern trolling that women have to “calm down” (cuz we’re hysterical) b/c there’s a HUGE difference
between #SexualViolence & an “innocent” hug - and ladies, why can’t we just learn to take a joke amirite? (I’d love to see someone clarify how a rape joke is funny)

Apparently there are a lot of ppl that don’t understand respect, consent, boundaries -right from wrong- &
this is a failure of parenting, a failure of education, a failure of culture & society. (& ooh boy one of these days I’ll do a thread on education fails. {not abt teachers}) Instead of teaching our kids proper #SexEd, including not only the anatomical parts & the basic biology
(which we barely do) but also respectful behavior toward one another. We need to teach consent. We need to explain that you do not touch someone else without their consent. You are not entitled to someone else’s body, nor their time or attention. We need to teach how to handle
-sorry, will pick this thread up tomorrow 🤦🏼‍♀️🤷🏼‍♀️-
1. Side note: I apologize for the random meandering nature of this thread. I started it w/out enough time to finish it, & w/out a thought out plan - anyone who has BiPolar2 (depression), Anxiety, ADHD, & brain fog from constant untreated pain will understand how focusing on a
2. specific task for a long period of time is incredibly difficult & at times it’s nearly impossible. So last night I made a sort of outline of what & how I’m going to continue this thread. It’s rly important to me. I hope you’ll bear w/me til the end. Thanks all 🤷🏼‍♀️😐
unroll please 😊

Doctors are no longer a driving part of the #OpioidHysteria. They never really were. Why why why are we still getting these stories instead of what’s really going on? Alt facts much? How very Trumpian. News media needs to take a good look in the mirror & start facing the truth.
Define “overprescribing” please. 91 ppl per day die from overdoses: from what exactly? Which meds? Multiple meds or just Opioids? God I’m fucking tired of this whole bs narrative still going on.
How about the painful stories of vulnerable ppl -disabled-Veterans-elderly- being cut off from #opioids & committing suicide b/c their pain is so bad?? #SuicideDue2Pain #PainKills

1. These are just a few of the people who were betrayed & murdered by the Gov & Doctors b/c they suffered from #ChronicPain.
2. These people were, & millions more are, disabled & being actively & maliciously denied proper medical care b/c of the #OpioidHysteria
3. that has taken over our Government, Insurers, Doctors & Pharmacies. We are, apparently, the acceptable collateral damage in the
