Feeling Famous

PreventConnect just RT (retweeted) me!!

preventconnect: instead on "engaging men & boys" should we consider "addressing masculiniities" instead? This opens opportunities to be inclusive
DancingGrapes: @preventconnect: exactly - masculinity is the problem, not individual boys and men!

So excited!

Women's Health Hero - VOTE!

So I mentioned my friend Julie nominating me as her Women's Health Hero. I did not realize what a big deal this thing is! There are some mad awesome women that have been nominated, including Feministing! I'm again so blown away to be listed in the same space as these warriors for the cause(s)!

I also did not realize there is a voting system - so while I do not have the readership of my incredible contemporaries, please go vote so I don't get shut out! And then take some time to appreciate all the incredible work going on out there!

Update: Winners are announced! What awesome things are happening in the world!

Women's Health Hero

My friend Julie - one of the most energetic and good hearted people I've met - nominated me as her Women's Health Hero for Our Bodies, Ourselves. Below is the video interview she sent that made me tear up. I feel really lucky and honored that a woman who's been such an inspiration and awesome experience to me felt the same!

BurningMan

My home village at the burn was Entheon which planned and built the temple shown in this slideshow. My crew and I help build, put together crystals, and guide burners through the space.



Cool thing to be a part of, however if you notice toward the end the center lotus with the Machu Picchu crystal, picture Dianna declaring "this feels a little like 'get your own crystal, White Man!'"

This is Rape

Hey y'all! Most know I work on sexual and partner violence prevention in my real life. I also have a blog about it, and while I try to separate the content of the two blogs - this general and that specific - I encourage all to check out both. I'm making an effort to update more frequently and will try not to always cross-post, but I really think (selfishly!) that they're worth browsing. Besides, what else are you going to do?! Work??

Peace!
