I am really trying to come up with the right words to say here to today’s Daily Post Prompt LOYAL. For the past few days if you have been on Facebook you have seen the words, ‘Me Too’ it is showing women they are not alone during the traumatic experience of being assaulted. The saddest part for me is, I know so many women this has happened to. I didn’t know it until this campaign hit Facebook, but I know so many women who have posted this. And it hurts my soul to the core.
To know that someone has endured this is so painful to me. One woman experiencing these actions is beyond wrong. So, today, I am calling out all men on this planet!! Grow Up!! I understand we have all had different experiences and there are a lot of men who have never had a positive male role model in their life. So, they turn to popular culture to create their ideals.
What does popular culture say about women? They are objects. If they don’t fit a certain mold they are expendable. And if they do fit that certain mold they are nothing more than a sexual object to be used by men and women as they please. We live in a world that uses people. If you have ever looked at an advertisement of any kind, you have been used. Ad executives study your likes, dislikes, what excites you and what you’ll buy. They spend thousands and thousands of dollars to find these things out. And the sad state of affairs we live in is, Sex Sells. It’s called the oldest profession.
So, where do our loyalties lie? Are they with people or things? Stuff is still for sale, sadly, as are people. So, it is clear our priorities are absolutely evil and horrid!! If I can turn around the mind and actions of just one person with this post, then it is all worth it. I know I am raising the hair and probably blood pressures of some people I know, and quite possibly am related to with this post. But I cannot remain silent!! We have a huge problem with humanity! When awareness to sexual assault needs to be brought to light on Facebook, we have reached a problem of epic proportions!! And I can’t stay silent!!
I love each and every human being on this planet, even the ones still in a womb. Yep, there is my stance on abortion in one sentence, deal with it! The notion that we can use and sell people is an absolute abomination to God!! The notion that we can abuse and kill people is an abomination to God!!! He gave us free will, but until our will is aligned with His will, we will always be Wrong!!!! Sorry about all the exclamation, I am getting fired up now.
When someone posts the ‘Me too’ campaign, don’t just read it and do nothing. Call it out! Be a support!! And most importantly, don’t stand Idly by and let these things happen. When you see a man (or woman) making an object out of any other human being, talk to them!! Find out where this behavior started and inform them you love them and human beings are to be loved, not objectified.
The choice is now yours, I am officially drawing a huge freakin’ line and saying, ‘YOU ARE EITHER FOR ALL HUMANITY OR NONE OF IT!!!! JESUS CHRIST DIED FOR ALL!!! NOT ONE OF US IS LESS THAN ANY OTHER!! THE TIME FOR THE VICTIMIZATION OF HUMANITY IS OVER!! WE NEED TO COME TOGETHER AND LOVE AND SUPPORT AND CALL OUT EVIL WHEN IT OCCURS!!!’
To those who have experienced any type of victimization I want you to know you are so much more than those event(s). You can rise from the ashes of the pain and become a major voice in this world!! I am here for you and Jesus Died For You!! Never forget that and allow Him to bring you peace.
