  1. When I saw the Black Lightening promo I wasn’t that excited because the only superhero show I watch on the CW is the Flash because the other ones aren’t my cup of tea. But I saw so many people who were excited about the premiere so I recorded it and watched it the next day. It was so good, probably one of the best shows I’ve seen in a while. I love that there’s so much black television to consume and I’ll be adding this show to my weekly rotation.

  2. I didn’t vote in the poll, but I commented about Babe Dot Net for another TBGWT episode. I got my episodes out of order.

    I keep hearing believe and listen to women, but on Twitter it is hard to find that privilege extended among survivors of sexual assault and violence who disagree on this latest issue with Grace and Ansari.

    But what I really wanted to add is that social media is great, however it seems that a lot of Twitter users I come across only rely on OTHER Twitter users as their realm of understanding and reality when it comes to issues surrounding violence against women. This creates an unhealthy silo for people when they communicate in the real world.

    There are many public policy wonks, advocates and attorneys, many of whom are drawn to the work because they are survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, dating violence and sex trafficking. If people have an opportunity to leave their social media spaces and visit some of those organizational sites, they will find that more comprehensive discussions and extended critiques are happening off their timelines. This may help all have more empathy and understanding when communicating with each other and not go for vitriol attacks because of a difference in opinions. Remember 1 in 4 women experience abuse, so often the people that are attacking each other may be survivors in healing themselves.

  3. So I voted No because I definitely believe that the woman in the story felt that she was assaulted and as long as that is true, who am I to deny her that? I also know that legally speaking this can’t be adjudicated as assault. I feel like yelling “just talk to each other!” at everyone out there in sexual encounters. I know many of these cases are men purposefully mistreating women and pretending that they didn’t know, but I think there are plenty that are men for whom viewing porn was the extent of their sex education. I hate that people can’t get past the idea that talking openly about their sexual desires with a potential partner will “ruin the mood.” Ok so finding out that you raped someone isn’t going to? I’m pretty sure that would ruin every sexual encounter you have for the rest of your life. I don’t know the solution but generally I think it’s a good thing that people are looking at the problems. Maybe this can give rise to better sex education.
