Sex without consent IS RAPE.
No arguments or blurry lines on legitimacy nonsense:
Sex without consent IS RAPE.
Just hours after tens of thousands of UltraViolet members spoke out against CeeLo Green's horrifying statements about rape--including a tweet that read "Women who are really raped REMEMBER!!!"--TBS and Time Warner agreed and announced that CeeLo Green's reality show had been cancelled.
It's a crucial victory--the decision shows that together when we speak out, we can create a real cost for sexism--even for popular celebrities and politicians.
After 50,000 UltraViolet members signed the petition, and TBS dropped his show, CeeLo issued an apology for his wrong and dangerous tweets. It was an important step--Grammy Award winner and popular performer, CeeLo has a fan base that looks up to him. They needed to hear directly from him that women deserve respect and that rape is never, ever acceptable.
There's still work to do, but make no mistake, this was an important victory--when we speak out together, we can make positive changes in our society.

many of us want a church that you can walk into naked
and not be raped or ridiculed
many of us know, and don't want the church to tell us
that we don't know God
many of us don't know God, and want to be introduced
we don't want him on display
we don't want to be on display ourselves
we just want an introduction
many of us don't want a church at all
but if there is one--we want it human
many of them want a church you can walk naked into too
but they're not sure why
many of them don't want that kind of church
many of them only want an organization
many of them want to know us
many of us want to know them too
but none know how well
and since this is true--for my part
i'll just continue asking God to take some tea with me
but not in church
