What are you usually
thinking about as you get

It teaches us that a short skirt and a smile is asking for it

It teaches us that its not wrong unless someone comes to her
When it comes to mother/fatherhood I do not hesitate to say that I rescue
would want to raise all-boys
and this, this is why I want all boys
I would want to be a Mother/Father all sons
because it's moments like these verdicts that make me numb to my
own anger Afraid the even talk about this out loud
If Ive learned anything about being a man its that being a father is the part where our first line of action as the people seeking justice
designed to be a contact sport and far too many of us retire before to trust the police more than we trust our children
we even see what the field looks like
If Ive learned anything about being a woman it's that no matter
Is to make shelter out of the prison cell instead of showing them the
how empowering I seem my existence was designed never stand a way home


when state of Ohio found two 16-year-old boys guilty of raping a

16-year-old girl
both boys cried her eyes out moments after the verdict
every major media news outlet codded them
instead of the girl they raped
CNN was grieving over the death of their futures in football
they said nothing of the cemetery growing inside the body of the
nothing of the graveyard where she will bury her trust in men
Rape culture is the worst kind of teacher our kids are learning the
most from
It teaches women that it's their responsibility to not get raped
It teaches men that boys will be boys

is to use juvenile detentions as an excuse for free childcare

The part where we celebrate our decision to throw another black
boy into a cage and trust that prison will teach him how to respect
women better than we ever could if we didn't give up on him
Jails will not fix broken people jails will break them harder
Until all of them are shards of mirror hurting everyone around

No wonder we cant see our reflections in their mistakes

Where do you think they learned this from anyway?
Cont. on next slide

I'll be damned if I stood here said

if he doesnt learn better from me than

that I only have the capacity

what will rape culture teach him when I'm not looking

to love someone whose only been at the edge a knife

hes as good as crooked cops treat you

at the barrel of a gun

as good as jailbird

and not have enough love to go around for the one

whos holding the weapon

sex offender

and ask where did they get that from?

Who taught them how to use it like that?

wife beater

I'm not saying to feel sorry for anybody and

hopeless case

Im not going to apologize for the way I feel about an issue as caged dog
complex as
hes as good as the next brown boy sobbing on the witness
this one as complex as we are

stand apologizing to the girl that he raped swearing that his

mother taught him better than that

Im saying

hoping that somebody in that courtroom will forgive him

that one day

for what

I'm going to be a mother/father

he has yet

and I'm going to have a son

to learn

and if I don't raised him in a community that will help me

teach him how to unravel himself from his sexism
from his patriarch
from the rotten parts his masculinity
