  • Apologies Fathers Do Not Receive

    ...I could not bring myself to begin praising these kings, without acknowledging the fact that there is a lot of harm done to fatherhood, and let's not forget black fatherhood, that needs to be rectified by admitting our faults, and then doing ''the work'' so that not only the children benefit from these interactions, but the fathers themselves can actually feel supported and loved as we say we love them.

  • He Took The Condom Off

    My hope is that survivors understand that when such an act takes place, no matter who did it, it is a grave violation of their sexual autonomy and dignity.
