Peggielene Bartels, A.K.A. King Peggy, is currently the King of Otuam, Ghana. She was chosen to be one of only three female kings in Ghana, and when she discovered that male chauvinists wanted her to only be a figurehead, she said: “They were treating me like I am a second-class citizen because I am a woman. I said, ‘Hell no, you’re not going to do this to a woman!’” When she encountered corruption and the threat of embezzlement to the royal funds, she declared “I’m going to squeeze their balls so hard their eyes pop!”

King Peggy has maintained her work in Ghana’s embassy in Washington, D.C. while making education affordable in Otuam, installing borehead wells to produce clean drinking water, enforcing incarceration laws to deal with domestic violence, replenishing the royal coffers by taxing Otuam’s fishing industry to improve life in the village, and appointing three women to her council.

“Nobody should tell you, ‘You’re a woman, you can’t do it,’” she insists. “You can do it. Be ready to accept it when the calling comes.”

Quoted from the Spring/Summer 2012 issue of Ms. Magazine.

What a beautiful badass woman.

King Peggy has been on my blog before but this is my goddamn blog and I will have King Peggy on here twice if I want.

MORE FEMALE KINGS.

Always reblog King Peggy, who is on my dash far less than she should be. Did you know she has written a book about her life? It is great, and you should all get right on that if you haven’t already.

There was a split second there where his like, “wait, what? bro what are you doing?” 

On more serious note, PTSD dogs for veterans are so fucking therapeutic. They’re like the one person you can spill your guts to and never worry about ever being judged or have that secret divulged. There are times when I definitely prefer the company of a dog over a human. 

Therapy animals save lives.

These dogs are even still so much more amazing. They check rooms before their handler enters, so they can clear it to help the person feel safe. Like in the gif, they are there when panic attacks or nightmares occur, to be something for the person to help ground themselves on, or yes just to turn on the lights. Even more amazing, many people are able to reduce their medication when they have a PTSD service dog there to help them. These dogs are useful for not just veterans, but also victims of abuse, accident trauma, natural disasters, and others. Their training allows them to be useful in situations where medical assistance is needed, as well. Some PTSD dogs are trained to recognize repetitive behaviours in handlers, and signal the handler to break the repetition and stopping the behaviour and possibly injury. 

Service dogs in general are just awesome. Remember to respect any that you see out in public. They are not there for you to walk up to and play with, even the puppies!

This is a warning to all in the Alberta, Canada region. This is a warning and a plea for understanding.
Please be cautious reading if you are triggered by the mentions of rape or sexual abuse.


Before I begin my story and warning here is something to keep in mind.
Holding silence of this magnitude for so long is the worst thing you could wish on another person.
Everyone tells you that there are side effects- that there’s trauma, but what media and most sources forget to include is detail of the magnitude..
Maybe some of you know. Maybe some of you don’t, but even if you haven’t experienced sexual abuse there’s always an embedded fear in most women’s minds.
I’m hoping that here on tumblr I can shine through the silence for the first time in my life, without fear, because the last few years have been full of threats and fear over what happened.
The nightmares and depression I’ve had from holding this in, and everything I feel now, the misery and pain while this girl lives her life without regret, without a care in the world- it’s finally coming out.

This girl is named Sarah Shillington [x], she lives in Spruce Grove, Alberta. She goes to a lot of conventions Canada-wide and possibly some in the USA. She’s part of a popular cosplay group in Canada, [x], and she lives a decently happy life, with loving parents and friends, (one pictured with her in above cosplay photo.) who are willing to go to extreme lengths to stop her from receiving any consequences of her actions.

I was raped, sexually harassed, harassed, degraded, and continually sexually assaulted by this girl less than few years ago.
Most people who hear this deny it because ‘it hasn’t happened to them’ or because she’s a female, and they don’t see any harm she can do because of that fact.

I come here knowing that I’m in a decent and just community, and that most of you respect a victims right to speak out, and even now I’m creating an entirely new account to share my story out of fear of her friends, but I know that I’m in the safest place I can be to post this, and to know people will not shame me, as several of her friends, my friends, and adults have done when I tried to talk about this.

I know I’m not the only one she’s harassed, and made uncomfortable, and I know for a fact I’m not the only one she’s abused.
After being hurt I talked to her exes, and even her longest friends, and I discovered that there were quite a few people who opened up after hearing my own story.

Her best friend, the girl in the picture above, is known to be a strong defender, admitting that Sarah is a rapist, but continuing to tell people who claim they were hurt that they’re bullying her by calling her a rapist. She is also in the cosplay group, and stands firm, snapping on anyone who tries to speak out and degrading them, and harassing them.

This girl is highly dangerous, not just to her partners, but to her friends. She doesn’t have any concept of no, or personal space, and has been known to get aggressive when fought off.
She is over legal age and she is fully capable of making decisions.
She’s sent apology letters to some of her exes when confronted with what she did.. That has a lot of nerve, in itself.
An apology can’t make up for severe trauma, repeated over time, an apology is meaningless when the offender continues the crime after sending the apology without learning any lessons.

This girl has gotten away with several assaults on other women so please, please signal boost this.
Especially if you have followers or are from Canada.

Teaching Consent to Small Children

afrafemme:

A friend and I were out with our kids when another family’s two-year-old came up. She began hugging my friend’s 18-month-old, following her around and smiling at her. My friend’s little girl looked like she wasn’t so sure she liked this, and at that moment the other little girl’s mom came up and got down on her little girl’s level to talk to her.

“Honey, can you listen to me for a moment? I’m glad you’ve found a new friend, but you need to make sure to look at her face to see if she likes it when you hug her. And if she doesn’t like it, you need to give her space. Okay?”

Two years old, and already her mother was teaching her about consent.

My daughter Sally likes to color on herself with markers. I tell her it’s her body, so it’s her choice. Sometimes she writes her name, sometimes she draws flowers or patterns. The other day I heard her talking to her brother, a marker in her hand.

“Bobby, do you mind if I color on your leg?”

Bobby smiled and moved himself closer to his sister. She began drawing a pattern on his leg with a marker while he watched, fascinated. Later, she began coloring on the sole of his foot. After each stoke, he pulled his foot back, laughing. I looked over to see what was causing the commotion, and Sally turned to me.

“He doesn’t mind if I do this,” she explained, “he is only moving his foot because it tickles. He thinks its funny.” And she was right. Already Bobby had extended his foot to her again, smiling as he did so.

What I find really fascinating about these two anecdotes is that they both deal with the consent of children not yet old enough to communicate verbally. In both stories, the older child must read the consent of the younger child through nonverbal cues. And even then, consent is not this ambiguous thing that is difficult to understand.

Teaching consent is ongoing, but it starts when children are very young. It involves both teaching children to pay attention to and respect others’ consent (or lack thereof) and teaching children that they should expect their own bodies and their own space to be respected—even by their parents and other relatives.

And if children of two or four can be expected to read the nonverbal cues and expressions of children not yet old enough to talk in order to assess whether there is consent, what excuse do full grown adults have?

Because I can’t get ever tired of making OCs with traumas, here is my silly, awkward shark boy. Got bitten by an orca a while ago. The bite itself wasn’t serious but he almost drowned in the incident. (What comforts me is knowing I’ll never be the worst OC owner as long as moisés lives)

I used direct reference from a photo but. I’m really tired right now to go get it. Maybe later. Shading is awkward (just like he is) because there was originally something in front of it. Well. I tried.

I think Suzanne Collins’ entire concept for these books was “How can I be the exact opposite of Stephanie Meyers?”

People keep asking me to draw more Hunger Games art and maybe I will, but really I don’t think I can top this one.
