Victims of sexual assault expect privacy. But 16-year-old Jada was violated all over again once explicit images from her rape surfaced on Twitter. So Jada decided to take her story public.

“There’s no point in hiding,” the Houston teen tells KHOU. “Everybody has already seen my face and my body, but that’s not what I am and who I am.”

I’m sharing this because certain people on twitter  NEEDS TO BE STOP! Specially the ignorant side of black twitter! Every time something bad happen to a young black women or black girl twitter is quickly to explode it into something bigger! And Jada story is one of them! She’s a 16 yearls high school student she could be your sister,cousin, neighbor, or classmate! This tragic thing happened to her and these ignorant people on twitter looking for followers exploit this to point where the disgusting hashtag was created #jadapose. People tweeting pictures of themselves in the pose in which Jada was found! What I find even worse about this its that a lot of the people doing these poses are young black men and women. Something like this happen to someone who could possibly be your sister and instead of asking for justice you rather create a new meme? And some of them even argue “oh how do you know she got rape?” Does it matter? a picture of an underage girl laying on the floor looking like she’s passed out is not something be laughed at EVER! Like ”A rape victim’s trauma is not grounds for a new internet meme. Pls do not partake in such ignorance. Report pictures.”

I’m happy and proud of Jada for speaking and not letting this disgusting thing becoming any bigger

Which brings me to what I’m trying to ask or say here when will sexual assault towards black girls and young black women will be taking serious by young black people?

i truly don’t understand what kind of world we live in.

This is absolutely horrific and abhorrent. Look at how few notes this has. Now watch as the so-called feminists and defenders of women on this site stay silent. The black woman’s body has no value to this society except for how it can be exploited and dehumanized. This is straight up misogynoir. This is an egregious act. This shows how sick our culture is. Rape culture is so pervasive and normalized that many will see nothing wrong with this new meme, much like as was the case with ‘Trayvoning’ (though that was white and non-Black POC racialized violence). This is also why I stay off of twitter.

An open letter to President Obama from the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists…

An open letter to Prime Minister Cameron from the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists…

An open letter to Prime Minister Harper from the Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada…

All 3 letters are in support of a pregnant female physician from Sudan, Meriam Yehya Ibrahim, who has been accused of adultery and apostasy and sentenced to stoning and hanging for marrying a Christian. Things like this, this blatant disregard for her life and her choice to marry who she wants, should not be tolerated!

UPDATE: Dr. Ibrahim gave birth to a baby girl on May 25th, while she was in prison, a month before her due date. As it stands, her execution is still on track….

On this day in 1937, the Golden Gate Bridge, connecting San Francisco to Marin County, California, officially opened amid citywide celebration. 
When the bridge opened it was the longest suspension bridge in the world, at 4,200 feet. At the appointed hour, a foghorn blew and the toll gates opened, releasing the earliest arrivals, who rushed to be the first to cross. 
This image depicts the USS California (BB44) crossing underneath an incomplete Golden Gate Bridge in 1936. National Archives Identifier 520585.
