APRIL 26 IS #DENIMDAY - BECAUSE CONSENT IS WHAT YOU SAY, NOT WHAT YOU WEAR.
Did you know that April is a "celebration" of two horrific causes? It's not only Child Abuse Prevention Month, but also Sexual Assault Awareness Month. I find it sad that we have to have months to highlight issues that should be non-existent in this day and age. Yet, when societal norms sexualize the clothing of young children, tell everyone it's okay to watch internet porn, or go to strip clubs, or our very own higher office holders normalize treating women like pieces of meat, it's obvious that we live in a highly misogynistic society. Nothing was going to change in the 1980's and Working Girl, but wasn't that supposed to go out of favor around the time of the movie Clueless? (I know, I'm showing my age).
