Tell the World Johnny….

Heard openly mocked Depp for being a “victim of abuse”

Jurors also heard a recording of Heard allegedly pressuring Depp to come forward as a “victim of domestic violence” and suggesting he wouldn’t be believed.

“Tell the world, Johnny, tell them, Johnny Depp, I, Johnny Depp, a man, I’m a victim too of domestic violence,” Heard says, before going on to challenge him to “see how many people believe or side with you.”

Jurors were played recordings of fights, including one in which Heard admitted to “hitting” Depp.

“You didn’t get punched. You got hit. I’m sorry I hit you like this, but I did not punch you. I did not fucking deck you. I fucking was hitting you.”

Heard later apologized.

Heard testified that Depp got violent during their honeymoon in 2015, after an argument over his drinking.

“He would slam me up against the wall,” she said. She said she feared Depp would kill her.

A trip to Australia, where Depp was filming the fifth installment of the Pirates of the Caribbean movie franchise, featured prominently in the trial. Depp claimed his wife threw a vodka bottle at him, severing the top of his middle right finger. Heard claimed Depp sexually assaulted her with a whiskey bottle.

“It [was] so easy for him to throw me around,” Heard testified. Depp, she said, shoved a liquor bottle “inside of me over and over again” and “said he would kill me”.

If this actually happened she would have been in hospital. The stories she’s come out with are ludicrous and lacked credibility in my personal opinion.

For everyone saying that “Now that a jury has sided with Johnny Depp, advocates say the verdict could have a chilling effect on other survivors looking to speak out against their abusers.” I say this.

Stop speaking on behalf of women like myself who have been abused while in a relationship with my ex husband.I support Johnny Depp.

He was the victim. Women always fight to be believed. This will set us back because we will be asked if we are like Amber Heard. Heard and the ACLU demonised Depp without knowing any facts. Shameful.

On a Date – Accept Boundaries Set! Don’t Push and Make Someone Feel Uncomfortable and Unsafe…

Story time! I was on a date with a guy about 3 years ago who knew that the only superficial thing that was important to me is height because I’m tall. He lied and said he was taller than he actually was.

When we met I was taller than him and I was more annoyed that he lied to me than the fact that he was 5”6! We had a nice chat although I knew there was no way I was going to see him again.

He randomly asked how I felt about kissing on a first date and I said no but if I am into the person then on a second date I’d be in. I also reiterated that I was disappointed I had been lied to. We left the bar and I headed to my car.

Suddenly he said hold on! Is the first date inside the bar and the second one here outside? If it’s the second one I want to kiss you! I was like wow wtf dude!! I said again about the height lying thing.

He then went onto the sidewalk as I stood on the road about to get in my car and he said “I’m taller than you now and it’s like a second date, so can we kiss”!!

I made it clear that while he’s a nice person I’m just not feeling it and I wished him all the best but I wouldn’t meet again. He asked if I was dating someone else and I said no I don’t date more than one person at a time. He just couldn’t accept what I was saying.

He walked off. I sped home! The next morning my phone rang and he said “I’ve been thinking about our date last night and I don’t think it’s going to work out so I don’t want to meet up again”!!!

Some people feel the need to be the one to end a relationship or just a dating situation even though I’d already said the exact same thing the night before!! I just said uh-huh ok I already said this but yeah cool. And I hung up.

To be honest it was about the lying and the boundary crossing. When someone says they don’t want or don’t like or can’t go etc let them have their boundaries! Don’t force yourself onto anyone.

RIP Kevin Samuels, the Godfather of all the Red-Pill, Incels, and Alfa/Beta nonsense!

Whether someone is dead or alive we cannot just ignore the things they did that hurt people. He was known for supporting men who didn’t like women and expected the prettiest woman while they had almost nothing to offer.

He particularly had a thing for verbally attacking black women. This was a constant theme. They would ask for advice and he would immediately ask their height, weight, rated their appearance out of 10, earnings etc. And whatever they said he put a negative twist to it.

He did decent men a disservice and women became the focus of mens’ anger when they thought they deserved a certain kind of woman.

This video is an example of what I mean although there’s a lot more online on his YouTube page.

If putting women down was his specialty then he did it well. I wish he wouldn’t have had the chance to be so awful about women.

Attack on Muslims in Mosque

“This happened at as mosque in east London.. East Ham I believe, these little shits thought it would be funny to attack Muslims who were just trying to pray. I blame parents for this.. I see it everyday.

Letting your kids act up and never checking them.. this is what they grow up to become and then when they fail in life later you want to blame everyone else but yourself.

Let one of these idiots come try it at my mosque and see…”

This is absolutely disgusting. Can’t people pray in peace without being harassed and physically attacking innocent people like this??

This is so freaking disrespectful and I hope someone with a shred of decency knows who they are and tells the police. Like wow!! Who raised you???

🇺🇦💪🏽 Ukrainian Footballer Emotional as he Gets a Standing Ovation by Fans Showing Support for Ukraine

Ukrainian footballer reduced to tears after being handed captain’s armband and given standing ovation

Benfica star Roman Yaremchuk was reduced to tears after coming on in his side’s match this evening as thousands of fans showed their support for Ukraine.

Since Russia began invading Ukraine just 11 days ago on the orders of Russian president Vladimir Putin, millions of people around the world have been showing support for Ukrainians during these incredibly tough times.

It’s been a difficult week for Ukrainian footballers playing through the shocking events with many having family and friends back home living in fear.

As we all watch in horror the senseless violence and murders of hundreds of innocent Ukrainians it’s hard not to get emotional watching this powerful moment of unity, support and solidarity.

Men Can Be Victims of Domestic Abuse Too…

I can’t believe that in 2022 I still have to say this.

Domestic violence can affect anyone – including men. According to the CDC, one in seven men age 18+ in the U.S. has been the victim of severe physical violence by an intimate partner in his lifetime.

When it comes to domestic violence, the conversation typically focuses on women as victims and men as perpetrators. After all, women make up at least 85 percent of the victims, and most often at the hands of male abusers.

But this doesn’t mean that abusive female partners don’t exist; they do. They absolutely do.

One in 10 men has experienced rape, physical violence, and/or stalking by an intimate partner.

Although they make up a smaller percentage of calls to Domestic Violence helplines, there are likely many more men who do not report or seek help for their abuse, for a variety of reasons:

Men are socialized not to express their feelings or see themselves as victims.

Pervading beliefs or stereotypes about men being abusers, women being victims.

The abuse of men is often treated as less serious, or a “joke.” The truth is, abuse is not a joke, in any situation, between any two people.

All victims, regardless of gender, deserve support and resources to help them feel safe. If you are experiencing domestic abuse please reach out to your local police for help. Make sure they truly understand what you’re going through.

And don’t be ashamed to say “I’m a victim of domestic abuse and I need help”. Those words will change your life.

I am all too aware that getting the help you need is not easy – especially when people make assumptions that the woman is the victim because she’s smaller. Or because she can lie and fake tears.

I’m tired. I’m drained. My heart hurts for a family I care deeply about and whom all this applies to…. And shame on those who are helping the woman, knowing very little information and accepting what she says as facts.

YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE. YOU ARE A DISGRACE HELPING A PERPETRATOR AND NOT THE VICTIMS

Matchmaking in the Orthodox Jewish and the Muslim Communities

I don’t think I can cringe any more if I tried!! It’s butt-cheek clenching yikes cringe level!!

Subject – Matchmaking in the Muslim and Ultra Orthodox Jewish communities.

Describing a “class society where classes don’t mix” is just so wrong on so many levels. And saying a daughter of a Rabbi can’t marry the son of a Grocer!! Oh… unless he’s a “good learner and educated in the Bible”.

Even I could do a better job explaining the process, and that’s saying something!!!!

I found it interesting how the Muslim matchmaker said what’s important is not to do with class but where they are in life and if their lives align. And it seems like online dating is more acceptable whereas in the hasidic and haredi communities not everyone is online.

The New Nude? Radical Show Explores the Naked Body in Photograph

‘Nude’, an exhibition at Fotografiska New York will look back on this gaze, and look hard.

The show, which opens on 11 February 2022, explores the naked body through different aesthetic lenses: poignant, macabre, glamorised and disorientating.

Though the show is limited to work by 30 female-identifying photographers (an effort to counteract male-dominated perspectives on nudity), the subject matter is not limited by gender identity.

Featured artists, representing 20 nationalities, include nonbinary individuals, men, and women, among whom are transgender individuals sharing their surgical transitions.

“Most of the bodies we see online on a daily basis aren’t even real, but rather enhanced or modified by technology to conform to an unsustainable current trend,’ says LA-based photographer Julia SH.

Julia is exhibiting powerful, textured portraits of bodies rarely depicted in 21st-century media, presented in museum-like frames.”

*****

Please be respectful and kind. If you have nothing nice to say just don’t comment at all. I find this fascinating purely because people come in all shapes and sizes and from so many cultures and nationalities.

And yet we keep being fed one narrative: only the thinnest bodies with perfect breasts and bums and six packs are okay to publish.

Indeed even when they have “plus size” models they can still be a U.K. size 12 which is obviously not plus size! All scars, freckles, cellulite and other parts of a normal body is smoothed away to show us what they want us to think is “a perfect body”.

The pressure has been put on women and girls for decades. However in recent years men and boys are also expected to have a perfect body. And a man with a bit of a belly is nicknamed “having a dad bod” as though that’s something to be ashamed of.

People are all different. We can have things we prefer and looks we admire. But for us to think that what is shown on social media is anything other than totally FAKE is ignorant.

Even the people who are considered the “prettiest or most handsome people” filter their pictures – obviously after taking 100 of the same photo to get “the perfect one to post”!

WATCH: Rav Yitzchak Berkovits on Chaim Walder: ‘Narcissism at its Best’

It’s so sad and disappointing that I’m still having to deal with ignorant and disgusting comments on the Walder SA/r*pe situation.

Sadly it doesn’t shock me. I’ve been receiving so many on here and on my WordPress blog page too. Fortunately I have the option of allowing them to be posted or not. And I’ve left them in my inbox and won’t be posting them.

The sad thing is that it’s people who cannot grasp the truth – that the person they admired and looked up to – was capable of such heinous crimes against so many girls and women.

Just saw this video link sent by a follower (thank you!) and it gave me hope that there may be a shift in how the frum community deal with SA. Might be a tiny shift. But a shift nonetheless.

https://vinnews.com/2022/01/02/watch-rav-yitzchak-berkovits-on-chaim-walder-narcissism-at-its-best/?fbclid=IwAR11KSmyk4FelvwG0_Est3rL3jIL-OSR1SXn0wtAMaP99INCxaTMV0_hGjk

Here’s a small part of what he says so you can get an idea of how he speaks about it all. However I’d urge you to watch the entire video which is less than half an hour.

Definitely worth the time even if it’s just to know you’re not alone and CSA has to start being taken seriously. And victims need to start being believed.

Christmas Gives Me So Much Anxiety… I Can’t Be Alone?

I can’t be the only person who feels lost at this time of year. While Christmas is not about religion anymore, it feels so stressful watching everyone around me get so excited while I’m full of anxiety…

I don’t know how to be the person who likes a day that I had no connection to growing up. I feel like I don’t belong. I don’t belong in the world I grew up in and I don’t belong in this new world either.

I feel so down.
I feel confused.
I feel lost.
I can’t be the only one….

How are YOU feeling about the chaos around you and what do you do – if anything – for the Christmas period? Help!!! Im so full of anxiety 😟
