We asked artists to submit work inspired by #metoo. This one, by @libbyvanderploeg, explores the concept of momentum. “When people join forces,” she explains, “they can exert greater leverage over a situation.” See her work and more in the New York Times — link in bio.

No more hiding. No more lying. No more crawling inside myself to try and take up less space because there are people around me who seem to have all the power. No more acquiescing to other peoples ideas of gender and behavior and masculinity and love and femininity and compassion and what humanity Should look like instead of what it Can look like.
No more pretending I don’t need help when I really do. No more false bravery. Now is the time for actual courage in the face of actual danger. I am ready and I am terrified. I am filled with abject fear and yet somehow exhilarated by the possibility of a spiritual triumph and a titanic shift. And although there is little calm, I seem to find infinite peace.
And so there is no more room in my heart space for those I do not trust or believe. For I am surrounded by a sisterhood of warriors and I am lifted up because of their powerful and glorious inner light. And the history of the Trans community and the music of the centuries. We all carry the torch
I am listening. Finally. I am finally awake and I am finally listening. And I am ready.
No more giving in.
TOMORROW on @CBSThisMorning: Former "TODAY" co-anchor @AnnCurry will join us for her *first* TV interview since leaving NBC in 2015.
She'll discuss her upcoming @PBS show and we'll also ask her about the #MeToo movement and the firing of her former colleague Matt Lauer.
Do you have any idea how often #women walk up and grab my #dick? How often my face/mouth has been #kissed without my #permission? How often I feel the caresses of on wanted hands on my #skin? I've grown weary of touches from others, so please learn to stroke my soul... #metoo
EN RIKTIGT TRYGG SOCIALFÖRSÄKRING! Det som Sverige idag gör är att skapa ett rättsosäkert samhälle där sjuka & svaga hamnar allra längst ned. Människor som behöver assistans, sjukersättning eller sjukpenning nekas på löpande band hjälp från Försäkringskassan. Att sänka sjuktalen gör inte människor friskare - däremot ser vi att det skapar en stor otrygghet & utsatthet för människor som förlorar livsviktig hjälp och försörjning. Människor som tvingas lämna sina hem, som tvingas dra ner på basala behov såsom måltider och människor som tvingas lämna sina jobb för att deras rehabilitering går för långsamt för Försäkringskassan & Sveriges styrande. VI MÅSTE AGERA! 🛑 Skriv era berättelser! Tagga med #EnRiktigTrygghet och tagga gärna detta konto eller skicka in just din berättelse till oss! Vi vill belysa de stora problem som idag finns - och påverka. 🛑 #försäkringskassan#förnedringskassan#svpol#fk#socialförsäkringen#utförsäkrad#sjukskriven#sverige2018#sverige#mänskligarättigheter#uppror#metoo#assistans#lss
New Moon in Capricorn
Yesterday I brought up the potential this week for mindless parroting, hashtag-activism, and echo-chambers to dilute the critical #metoo movement, or at least poison the opportunity we have now to “let our hearts do the talking”, (my beloved Julie Doiron). The feminine is rising, and the wound of toxic masculinity is being lanced, though Jupiter in Scorpio reminds us that the process will bring us all to the brink.
This potent New Moon, conjunct the goddess of love, is in flowing dialogue with Mars, and sparring more energetically with Uranus. Capricorn is very much a masculine sign: the archetypal paternal figure, and guardian of the status quo, though I think we can agree that The Tower needed to be blitzed by lightning, like, yesterday. Nevertheless, the presence of Venus, and the Moon on the Sabian symbol of “a nature sprit dancing in a waterfall”, suggests that the revolution, however shocking, will be guided by love, and a graceful integration of the masculine and feminine.
This New Moon wants us to lean into an explosive heart-opening experience that will pave the way to compassionate dialogue, and deep structural reform. However, with Venus on the Sabian symbol of the aviary, we have another warning not to lapse into the dark side of group-think.
This morning I noticed that a handful of Canadian writers were being scorned on Twitter for their decision to remove their names from the deeply problematic UBC open letter, and its silencing of the victims of Steven Galloway. Instead of recognizing that people change their minds and hearts, and the path of civil discourse rarely runs smoothly, this gesture of solidarity was met, in some cases, with derision and mockery. Now is the time to let our hearts do the talking. Or to at least pause and open the channels of dialogue to new and unlikely allies. #newmoon#capricorn#lovelovelove

#MeToo I’ve survived 21 years of touches, slaps, being called a whore,punched in the face during sex, slapped in the face during sex. Forced handjobs. Forced blow jobs. Rapes and gropes. List is lengthy! And the response to my suffering is laughable to say the least. This idiot’s sentiment is extremely common! I’ve had enough though. Some of you should be really scared cuz if I name names you not gon have a career lmfao.
✨Astrología colectiva✨ver video en mi pg de Facebook (consciencia3.0) #Metoo (Yo Tambien) es un movimiento de mujeres que han sido abusadas sexualmente en los Estados Unidos, este movimiento refleja el trabajo que esta realizando 🔥 #jupiter (planeta de la verdad) en🎆 #escorpio (signo de los secretos) Ahora hay un nuevo movimiento llamado #timesup (el tiempo es ahora) que soporta las causas de estas mujeres abusadas sexualmente y lo puedo traducir como la entrada de ☄️ #saturno (planeta del karma y el deber ser) en #capricornio (signo de las instituciones o figuras de poder) ¿Ahora podemos entender cómo funciona la astrología colectiva? #astrologia#astrologiacolectiva#consciencia#astral
