Mine - A short film from Fordham University for Campus Movie Fest 2014. Out of over 100 films, it won Best Actress and got nominated for Best Drama. Mine has since been promoted by organizations like End Violence Against Women International and The Pixel Project.

The story follows Lucy as she performs a spoken word poem about the sometimes subtle way abusive relationships can develop. 

Update: As a Campus MovieFest national wild card finalist, this film will officially be screened in Hollywood  if it gets enough views by midnight on Monday, June 1! Thanks all for the overwhelming support, and keep watching!

You can click here to read a transcription of the poem.

Everyone needs to watch this like this very instant, especially if you’ve been in an abusive relationship. It resonated with me so much. Get this thing the attention it deserves.

"Don’t be defined by your condition" often seems to mean "pretend your condition doesn’t shape your life or else".

"Don’t let [traumatic life-altering event that causes long-term emotional, mental, and physical health problems] define you" often seems to mean "stop talking about [traumatic life-altering event] and pretend it never happened and doesn’t shape your life or else".

This is an important point.

So, i read this awful article using bathroom “scare tactics,” which was claiming that trans women are potential rapists. “Men” who dress as women to gain access to women only spaces and force them self on women. This really upset me and i had a bit of a Twitter rant. They were read by others and i was urged to post them in other media also, so i am posting them here. (Edited together in easy reading format from top to bottom.)

This is the link in the first tweet about how there are no cases of a trans woman attacking a cis woman in public restrooms: Link 1.

This is the link in the second tweet about the cases where trans people are assaulted in the bathroom by cis people: Link 2.

if you’re cis and you follow me i’m gonna need you to reblog this

don’t care if you’re cis or trans, this is important.

This is important information for everyone to know.

Tell Radfems to stop fucking lying about Trans Women

Relevant to what I just posted to re-reblogging.
