There is no shame in divorce, sometimes things don’t workout and a couple shouldn’t be shamed for it.

Whether you’re colleagues, friends, friends with benefits, dating or family – it’s good to be there for the people we care about and I wouldn’t discourage that. But we have to stop expecting women to fix men. We cannot continue to carry that burden. Emotional labour is labour. I am tired of how women get ripped apart for not staying with men through their struggles. There should never be an obligation for anyone to stay with someone because they are going through something. Yet somehow it’s always expected of women (never vice-versa). Don’t give in to your own saviour complex to make you feel valuable. If you really want to, stay – but let men fix themselves (or let them pay a therapist). And If you want to leave, that is absolutely valid too. 🏃🏽♀️💨
All set to move into the post production phase! Huge thank you to the amazing Cassandra Bankson for taking the time to FaceTime in for a last minute interview with our doc group🎥💕

This level 2 class tho! The revamped some choreography that I built a while ago. Had to make some changes because of the numbers in class, but I really love this group! The number is about being a part of the #patriarchy pulling each other out of it, and tapping into our feminine power. It's about the toxic system that we have set up and are a part of whether we know it or not. Seeing that, and breaking out of it in a powerful way. There isn't a day that goes by where I am not grateful for @metropolitan_studios_ and for the people who have put their passion and love behind what we do here. #smashthepatriarchy#killingit#floorwork#chairchoreography#magicshithappenshere#metropolitanstudios

The FDA is collecting comments from professionals and personal consumers on risks and side effects related to contraceptives.
The link is in my profile but I have been unable to get the website to work with the IG or FB apps. The url still works.
The goal is to possibly get a black box warning on contraceptives. The information laid out is thorough and covers many different forms of birth control. This is an opportunity for you to share your experiences.
This is my comment. I wanted to keep it short because I am not a professional and can only speak for myself. But when I read it again, I could not believe what I was looking at, with each side effect listed one after the other. Each one was only realized by me, not told to me as a risk by my doctor.
I am sad that I endured this for far too long. I am sad that I endured this at all. I am sad that I barely remember events in the 9 months from 2015-16 because my brain was so foggy. I’m sad that others have experienced the same or worse.
I can’t believe I feel the need to have to add a disclaimer here. I am not Catholic. I am not anti-science. I am not anti-woman. I am not anti-choice.
I believe in the access and choice to use hormonal birth control, as long as we are told the risks. When we are given no more options, when men are not made to have equal responsibility, when men would never take synthetic hormones, when we are purposefully left in the dark about how our bodies work, we are not being pro-woman. When we demean those who choose fertility awareness and have no body literacy, we are not pro-science or pro-choice. We are upholding the patriarchy and ignorance. Help contribute to change!
Today’s Infinity Call after-chat begins almost the exact same way as yesterday’s. Same words. Same topic. The holiness of the physical and in particular, the physicality of you. For 6000 years, the female form has been alternately demonized and pedestalized. Madonna/ Whore (although the term ‘whore’ was once an honorific but that’s for another time). The time has come to discard both of those patriarchal, grotesque distortions and return to our organic and intrinsic holiness as members of this great and sprawling Yoniverse. I love you. #getfree

Judge Linda R. Reade’s husband bought Prison Stock five days before Immigration.
The nearly 400 works who were arrested were taken to National Cattle Congress (seriously?!?), a fairground that had been converted into a Courthouse.
270 people were sentenced to 5 months in prison during Judicial Assembly Line.
QUESTION: Do you think this judge SCAMMED THE SYSTEM? 🧐
