timecurve asked: ""It's about having the confidence to say I don't want to do this" @CarrieHFletcher on pressure in #relationships " what the HECK
The full quote [1:56 in the video]:
Jimmy: What should you do if you feel pressured within a relationship to maybe have sex, or to send explicit pictures, or to do anything you don’t feel comfortable with?
Carrie: It’s about having the confidence and the self-esteem and the self-respect to say ‘I don’t want this’, ‘I don’t wanna do this.’
(Note: this quote is followed by a discussion on consent, which is important, but it does approach it from the angle of ‘oh that can be quite romantic’ rather than ‘hey that’s a legal obligation’.)

A new religious statue in the town of Davidson, N.C., is unlike anything you might see in church.
The statue depicts Jesus as a vagrant sleeping on a park bench. St. Alban’s Episcopal Church installed the homeless Jesus statue on its property in the middle of an upscale neighborhood filled with well-kept townhomes.
Jesus is huddled under a blanket with his face and hands obscured; only the crucifixion wounds on his uncovered feet give him away.
The reaction was immediate. Some loved it; some didn’t.
"One woman from the neighborhood actually called police the first time she drove by," says David Boraks, editor of DavidsonNews.net. "She thought it was an actual homeless person."
That’s right. Somebody called the cops on Jesus.
And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Since you have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, you have done it unto me.
it took three days to scrub you out of my mouth and i kept my window open the entire drive home because i was afraid of hearing myself and it was only yesterday i realised i have to live inside noise because i can’t stand to be alone in my own head anymore
sometimes i still taste more like you…
Even the most sexed up man in all of history knew that taking advantage of women was never ok.
