Stamford Hill and The Pressures of Modesty for Women

The last event I attended in Stamford Hill was one like the one this woman writes about. I was asked to come dressed appropriately and covered up which I would have done anyway. I was even told that I needed to cover my hair despite the fact I was divorced and this is not necessary according to Jewish law.

I had countless texts and phone calls prior to this event when the parents (my sibling and her husband) kept asking for photos of what I would wear and wanted to vet me and check it would fit their list of what was acceptable. Of course I’d have gone with appropriate attire but the pressure was so intense and was too much for me.

At the event itself I was looked at from head to toe by pretty much every single person there. I was taken aside by members of my own family who had questions about why I just couldn’t wear a wig (I’d already donated mine to other women in the community).

That night I decided I would never attend an event in Stamford Hill again. I shouldn’t have to justify the denier tights I’m wearing or why I’m wearing 3/4 length T-shirts not ones till the wrist. And the insistence of me covering my hair was ridiculous.

I respect people.
I respect their community.
But they will never respect my life and my choices.

So I’ve never been back.

Bride and Prejudice – The Pain of Wanting a Relationship with your Mother but she’s Denying the Abuse you Experienced…

This breaks my heart 💔 and I know all about the feeling of desperately wanting your mother’s love and support but knowing she’s not able to give that to you and is unable to apologise for the abuse and pain she’s put you through…

This is from a tv show called Bride and Prejudice: The Forbidden Weddings. It’s on Discovery+. Definitely worth watching…

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.

Amber Heard has set Women back decades with her very serious allegations of abuse against Johnny Depp

Many domestic abuse survivors will be watching in horror knowing that she’s set us back decades. I am a survivor of DA when I was married for 17 years. I fought to get my voice heard and now this has happened, it will be even harder to be believed… so disappointed and painful.

I could never sit so close to my abuser and speak like that. I’d be shaking and crying. I asked for a curtain to be pulled around. I didn’t want to have to speak when he was right there. So much of what she says and does makes no sense.

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.

Travis Scott’s Concert Takes a Tragic Turn with Horrific Stampede Leaving 11 Dead and Countless Injured

Organisers of what turned out to be one of the deadliest live music events in US history are facing mounting questions about why the rapper Travis Scott continued performing when first responders were already dealing with a mass casualty event.

Eight people ranging in age from 14 to 27 were killed and dozens were injured at the Astroworld festival in Houston on Friday night, when fans were crushed against the stage.

Here is his sorry excuse for an apology for the deaths of his fans… the very people who have made him the wealthy rapper and performer he is – or was. The loved ones of those who lost their lives need answers. This isn’t good enough.

At least two investigations are now underway into the deadly stampede which took placed at the opening night of the Astroworld music festival in Houston, Texas.

A sold-out headline show by rapper and festival organiser Travis Scott on turned deadly when guests began pushing towards the front of the stage, crushing some and reportedly leaving them unable to breathe.

The reports I’ve heard and watched of people who were there are heartbreaking and leaves you speechless and feeling lucky simply because you can breathe without fear… the horrors these young fans experienced in their final moments is hard to imagine…
