[ # ] Time Magazine got the People of the Year right! #MeToo
December 6th, 2017 under Admirable People

If 2017 can be remembered for anything, it needs to be remembered as the year that sexual assault victims found their voice and used it take on their abusers.

For centuries assaulters got away with attacking and demeaning their victims because they were in a power position. Not anymore. We are mad as hell and we are not going to take it anymore. We are screaming “#MeToo” from rooftops all over the world and the world is finally listening. It is such a powerful movement that Time Magazine is honoring it as their People of the Year. I know they say Person, but it is us people who are making it happen. We are doing this so future generations will not have to go through with what we went through. To live with the mental scars that never go away. That make me cry as I type this because there is still one story I cannot talk about and it happened to me when I was just 17. I will tell you I went to the police and they did nothing. They were upset I wasted their time and they knew and respected my mom and still treated us that way. I don’t want anyone to live with a scar like that. I want the police to listen. I want the bosses to listen. I want everyone to listen. And I want them to BELIEVE us. Is that asking for too much?

By Time recognizing #MeToo aka the Silence Breakers, it solidifying the historic moment for future generations to. We will forget about the President, but we will always remember 2017 as the year that we said no more! You can not use power to harass me any more. In the words of Twisted Sister, “We’re not gonna take it anymore!”
