Celebrities wore all black to The Golden Globes last night to protest sexual assault and sexual harassment happening in the film/tv industry (and to a small extent, elsewhere). I was one of the few people unimpressed. It's great that celebrities donated money to Time's Up, a legal defense fund combating sexual harassment in the workplace, but the wearing of black $150,000 dresses is creating a visibility that is unrelatable, passive, and potentially more harmful than helpful.

It wasn't rape (at least... not the legal definition), but it wasn't consensual. It was consensual at first, and then he did his own thing without consent.
[TW: rape, sexual assault, violence]
Last weekend, a woman was brutally beaten and raped on a Madison East side bike path. The incident has garnered a lot of attention from community members, and a march is being held tonight.
I am just settling back into my life here in Madison after being away for a week in St. Paul and Minnetonka, Minnesota. I am still coming down.
