Welcome back dear readers. I hope you are doing well in the midst of this holiday season. I was able to have a much-needed mini vacation from work and spend some time with my family. I also saw Les Miserables which was amazing! Highly recommend that you see it (unless you dislike Broadway musicals, then it won’t be your thing). I haven’t been on my computer much in the last week so I haven’t been reading as much but here’s a couple of things I found interesting. What have you been reading?
Patriarchy Survivor shares the testimony of a survivor who studied rape in college and asks survivors to stop blaming themselves and start focusing on healing.
Sexism in advertising: Harmless joke or powerful messages of misogyny?
A male survivor shares his story and his resulting feelings of guilt that he has a hard time trusting women.
An interesting article about modesty and self-hatred: “We need a better conversation because men should not be hating themselves every time a woman walks by.”
