    A Fight For Rape Survivors’ Rights

    I was raped on Aug. 9, 2015. I had been downtown with a friend and this man approached us. He led me to a parking garage, slammed my head up against the parking garage wall and raped me vaginally and anally. In his statement to the police he admitted that it was like — he had penetrated me, he just said it was consensual.

    Let’s Play “Who’s the Real Victim?” (feat. Bob Saget) – The Jim Jefferies Show

    Well, it went down exactly like we all hoped it wouldn’t. Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed as the next Supreme Court Justice.

    How MAKERS Inspired Me, Amanda Nguyen | MAKERS

    When I was working in finance, I did it because that’s what everybody else was doing, And I said OK, well, I’ll give this a try. And I did not like it. I literally watched Makers videos.
