You are not alone. Together we can de-stigmatize speaking out about our experiences with sexual harassment, assault, and more.

    But despite all the fun and games, Christmas parties can occasionally have a much darker side.

    How to Move On with Your Life After Sexual Assault

    How to Move On with Your Life After Sexual Assault

    I was raped. I was 14 years old when it happened and my world seemed to fall apart at the seams.

    The Fear Behind Cat Calling

    The Fear Behind Cat Calling

    There was an instance some years ago where I was leaving my mother's house late at night. Before heading home, I decided to head towards a fast food place and grab a quick bite. It was a Sunday night and, being a relatively small town, the streets were empty. As I crawled to a stop at a red light, I noticed a white car that was in the second lane to my left. Two men looked to be in their early 30s and, once I stopped right next to them, were staring dead in my direction.

    Pro-Choice

    High school is hard enough when everyone is trying to figure themselves out and experience the best years of their lives. That all went downhill for me when I attended high school I thought everyone and everything was going to be just like you see on TV, everyone would get along, be friends, and talk about our goals for college. Well, I was in for a big surprise when I was a freshman at high school. The other students were loud, disrespectful, disorganized, and some were even in real street gangs.

    What I Really Mean When I Say Me Too

    What I Really Mean When I Say Me Too

    The #MeToo movement has given a voice to countless women (and men, but for the purposes of this article, I’m just going to refer to women) who have survived sexual violence. For many, it was the first time they were able to admit to being a survivor of a sexual assault. For others, it was something they’d already announced to the world, so to speak, and writing those two little words really wasn’t such a big deal.

    Why I Didn't Report...

    Why I Didn't Report...

    Recently like most of the world I have been following the Dr. Christine Blasey Ford vs. Brett Kavanaugh case. It has brought a lot of women and men to speak about their sexual assault or sexual abuse experiences and why they did not report it to anyone after it happened.

    'Baby It's Cold Outside' Becomes Hot Topic in #MeToo Era

    'Baby It's Cold Outside' Becomes Hot Topic in #MeToo Era

    "Baby It's Cold Outside" has, thanks to #Glee (and #ErinDavis and #MikeCooper from 98.1 #CHFI in #Toronto), become one of my favorite #Christmas songs of all time. Before I talk about the lyrics, I just have to say that #ChrisColfer and #DarrenCriss looked like they were having a terrific time singing what had been until that point a duet between a man and a woman, and when I heard Davis and Cooper's version on CHFI, it struck me that these two cohosts and friends were having a ball singing it.

    The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

    The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

    When I was a teenager, something unexpected happened to me that was hard to overcome, but as the years went by I learned to accept that what happened happened and to move on from it. Sadly, that was hard to do, but the man I am with today helped me through that journey to get over what has happened. This poem was written before I had met him as a start to get over what has happened to me, and after such a long time, this dragon tattoo represents the truth about me as a person.
