please pass along this post. We cannot tolerate rape! Every rape, every case of domestic violence is an outrage against humanity!
A map of every state that has a loophole in the law that allows cops to rape a detainee in their custody as long as they ‘claim’ consent.
I want to set somethi...ng on fire right now. Burn it all down. 🔥🔥🔥🤬🤬🤬
**this is being shared a lot. This is very real. Here is the link that goes into further detail about this rape loophole in the law in these states. THIS IS REAL.
“According to Buzzfeed writer Albert Samaha, of at least 158 law enforcement officers charged since 2006 with sexual assault, sexual battery, or unlawful sexual contact with somebody under their control, at least 26 have been acquitted or had charges dropped based on the consent defense.” - meaning police have used this loophole to get away with raping detainees and some have walked away with zero legal consequences as a result.
honoring and celebrating women's accomplishments!

Goddess bless the bees and those who protect them!
Shining light on these crimes, this suffering, is work that must continue until it is not necessary because these things have become rare. That is when it will have gone far enough.
thank you Marley Dias!
As I prepare for Priestess Training this morning, I affirm the beauty and power of women working together. She is rising in many ways, and putting women in l...eadership in all places and at all levels to set the groundwork for a major shift in the power dynamics of the world. In my opinion, it does not make any difference which spiritual arena they may be in, as long as they are open to Creation/Great Mystery as they understand it, and act according to the the tenets of devotion, integrity and authenticity...they have my vote.
Such an important leader in the world's ecology movement!
