    When we raise our children to be allies, they grow up to become co-conspirators who challenge imperialism, settler-colonialism, and injustice in all its forms.

    Today 19 years ago, Rachel Corrie put her life on the line by standing alongside her Palestinian siblings and sister-activists and practicing non-violent civil disobedience in the face the Israeli apartheid regime.

    Ancestor Corrie is not a martyr. She was and still is an example of what decolonizing whiteness looks like. Whether you place yourself in the pathway to defend land sovereignty, attend school board meetings to hold space alongside parents and organizers of color, help organize food/resource drives to help houseless people in your community, or carpool neighbors to the polls during midterms, we ALL have a responsibility to disrupt and upRoot injustice at home and around the world.

    Friendly reminder that if, at any point, you come across a woman with severe internalised misogyny, a woman who goes out of her way to defend men, a woman who goes out of her way to be the best trans ally… if you start throwing insults like “I bet you’re ugly” or “I bet you just want to suck men’s dicks so they like you” or anything like that, you’re not being feminist, you’re being nothing but misogynistic.

    Stop it.

    Grooming…. let’s talk about it:

    Let’s start back in 1919. Charlie Chaplin, who would become one of the most famous and celebrated movie stars of all time, was 29 when he married 16 year old aspiring actress Mildred Harris. Their marriage only lasted 2 years.  In 1924, Chaplin repeated the pattern with another 16 year old, Lita Gray.  He met Lita when she was just 6 and began taking her on dates around the age of 12.  

    1954 – Sam Cooke meets a 12-year old Aretha Franklin and brings her to his hotel room.  Before her father interrupted, Aretha said the conversation “took another turn.”

    In 1957, 23 year old Jerry Lee Lewis married his cousin, 13 year old Myra Brown.  She still believed in Santa.

    Also in 1957, 16 year old Anna Mae Bullock met 24 year old Ike Turner. He quickly took her into his band, helped make her a star, and began to treat the newly christened “Tina” as if he owned her.  They married 6 years later.  Tina once wrote that she was afraid not to accept his proposal.

    In 1959, Elvis Presley met his future wife.  He was 25 and she was 14. They stayed in touch via phone and letters for the next 2 ½ years.  At that time, Elvis took her on a drug romp to Vegas, followed by moving her into his Graceland mansion. They didn’t marry until 1967. While both parties claimed that Priscilla was a virgin on her wedding night, biographer Susan Finstad makes a strong case that this could not be true.  Priscilla herself has admitted that she & Elvis slept in the same bed and that Elvis “taught (her) other ways to please him.”  Elvis reportedly had a predeliction for 14 year old girls, both before and after his marriage to Priscilla.

    Chuck Berry  was arrested and found guilty of transporting an underage girl across state lines for immoral purposes, spending two years in jail in 1960.

    In 1969, Sable Starr, queen of the so-called “baby groupies”, had a brief relationship with Iggy Pop.  She was 13. He later wrote a song about it. Starr had sexual relationships with many other band members, including encouters with David Bowie, Mick Jagger, and Rod Stewart.

    It’s 1972 and Rock stars are still having sex with little girls and everyone knows it, but no one does anything about it. Lori Mattix tells of losing her virginity at age 14 to David Bowie.  She went on to start “dating” Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page that same year, a relationship that began when Page’s manager kidnapped her and brought her to Jimmy’s hotel room.  Page kept Lori essentially locked up in his house for most of their 18 months together.  The “baby groupie” also reports a sexual relationship with Mick Jagger when she was just 17.

    In 1973, married singer Marvin Gaye met and pursued 17 year old Janis Hunter.  He wrote “Let’s Get it On” as a tribute to his lust for her. Marvin took his teen date to dinner shortly after they met, where he bribed the waiter to bring her alcohol, then had sex with her later that night. They had a baby by the time she was 18, and married in 1977. The marriage lasted just 3 years.

    In 1975, Steven Tyler purchased the guardianship of a 16 year old girl (Julia Holcomb) from her mother when he was 27 so that he could legally take her with him across state lines while he was on tour.

    In 1978, Ted Nugent also purchases the guardianship of a teenager from her parents.  He was 30, Pele Massa was 17. Years later, Ted reportedly received oral sex from a 12 year old Courtney Love.

    March 10, 1977. One of the most well-known cases. Director Roman Polanski drugs and rapes 13 year old Samantha Gailey. Allowed to plead guilty to a lesser charge, Polanski nevertheless fled to France before sentencing and remains exiled from the United States. He has not been exiled, however, from Hollywood and continues to make movies and win awards to this day. 

    Eagles drummer and vocalist Don Henley was arrested in 1980 in Los Angeles after paramedics were called to his home to save a naked 16-year-old girl who was overdosing on cocaine and Quaaludes.

    Colored over as a a “grand romance” and a “decades long relationship”, Celine Dion was 12 years old when 38 year old Rene Angelil became her manager.  They went public with their relationship when she was 19.

    In 1984, Rolling Stones bassist Bill Wyman started dating Mandy Smith. She was 13.  Although they did not marry until she was 18, Mandy says she was 14 when they first had sex.  Mr. Wyman has never been investigated, much less prosecuted.

    Red Hot Chili Peppers’ lead Anthony Kiedis readily admits to having sex with a 14 year old girl when he was 23.  According to him, once he confirmed her age he “had sex with her again.”  In 1986, the 24-year old musician began dating 16 year old Ione Skye.

     In 1990, 16 year old Mayte Garcia’s mother sent a video of her belly-dancing to Prince. He arranged to meet her, confirmed she was 16 and a year later moved her into his house.  When she was 19, he initiated a sexual relationshi by informing her it was time to go on birth control.  They married when she was 22 and he was 37.  Before Mayte, Prince met “Anna Fantastic” when she was 15.  At 17, she moved into his compound where they had a two year long relationship.

    In 1991, 32 year old director Luc Besson met and eventually married model Maïwenn Le Besco when she was 15.  Their relationship inspired his movie Léon: The Professional (1994), which followed an emotional relationship between an adult man and a young girl.

    In 1993, Jerry Seinfeld picked up a  high school student in a public park.  He was 39 and she was 17.  He and Shoshanna Lonstein dated for four years – through her college years.

    Also in 1993, MC Ren of N.W.A. was accused of raping and impregnating a 16 year old girl in the group’s tour bus. The case never went to trial, however a paternity test showed that he was the father of the girl’s baby.

    Noted pedophile R Kelley secretly married R&B singer Aaliyah in 1994 when she was 15 and he was 27.  They met when she was 12 and he later helped write and produce her first album – “Age Ain’t Nothing but a Number.“ 

    In 1995, teen star Brandy (age 16) started dating 21-year-old Boyz II Men member Wanya Morris. Keeping their relationship under wraps due to her age proved too stressful for the couple and they broke up soon after.

    In 1997, Woody Allen should have become notorious when he married his de facto step-daughter.  Though she was 21 at the time of the wedding, the two met when she 8.  No matter the spin, the facts are stark. This wasn’t the only time Allen dated a much younger woman. Actress Babi Christina Engelhardt  began a years-long love affair with Allen when she was 16 and he was 41. When Allen was 42, he romanced 17-year-old actress and high school senior Stacey Nelkin.

    It’s the early-mid 2000s and "That 70s Show” actor, Wilmer Valderrama, continues to date teenage girls in an effort to deny that he is now over 30.  He dated 16-year-old Mandy Moore despite being four years her senior.  At age 24, Valderrama dated 17-year-old Lindsay Lohan though they kept the relationship a secret until her 18th birthday in 2004. In 2010, the 30-year-old began dating 17-year-old Demi Lovato.

    In 2001, Fast & Furious star Paul Walker (28 at the time) was dating 16-year old Aubrianna Atwell.  This was not Paul’s last time to date a teenager.  His girlfriend at the time of his death, Jasmine Pilchard-Gosnell, was 23 to his 40.  They met when she was 16.

    Back in 2004, 26 year old Joel Madden and Hilary Duff did the familiar dance of being “just friends” until her 18th birthday in 2006. When asked about whether she was intimate with Madden or not in a 2015 interview with Cosmopolitan, Duff stated, “I had a 26-year-old boyfriend. So everyone can make their own assumptions about what I was doing.”

    In 2005, clean cut TV heartthrob Chad Michael Murray begins dating a girl in high school.  They get engaged when she turns 18 and Murray calls her a “little sweetheart” and says they have been together “for awhile.”

    Similarly, in 2006, co-stars Hayden Panettiere and Milo Ventimiglia began dating. She was 17.  He was 12 years her senior.

    Actor Doug Hutchison married 16-year-old Courtney Stodden in 2011, when he was 51 years old. The dysfunctional pair became famous as reality stars, with Courtney undergoing extensive plastic surgery to maintain their image.

    Rapper Tyga and Kylie Jenner began “hanging out” an awful lot beginning in 2014 when she was 16 and he was 24. They dated on and off after that, though they became a lot more openly “on” after her 18th birthday in 2016. 

    In late 2018, 44 year old Leonardo DiCaprio publicly reveals that he is dating 21 year old model Camilla Morrone. It’s not the age gap that puts Leo on our list, it’s the fact that he’s known Camilla since she was 11. 

    2018 – 14 year old Millie Bobby Brown innocently revealed that rapper, Drake, age 31, has been close friends with her, for the last year giving her advice about boys.  He texts her, “I miss you.”  This is the same Drake who has, more than once, skated around that “just friends until she turns 18” line – most recently with 18 year old model Bella Harris.

    Guys, this isn’t a friendship. This is GROOMING.  No one will stop it.  They’ll “date.”  He’ll have sex with her, probably in a couple of years.  No one will care because he’s a man and a star.  NO ONE WILL CARE UNLESS WE START MAKING PEOPLE CARE.

    Make them care. No free passes.  No 2nd chances. A ruined career is the least they deserve.  It’s not cute. THIS IS NOT OK.~ Verity Violet

    THROUGH A RAPIST’S EYES” (PLS TAKE TIME TO READ THIS. It may save a life, It may save your life.)

    An Article from Neena Susan Thomas

    “Through a rapist’s eyes. A group of rapists and date rapists in prison were interview…ed on what they look for in a potential victim and here are some interesting facts:

    1] The first thing men look for in a potential victim is hairstyle. They are most likely to go after a woman with a ponytail, bun! , braid, or other hairstyle that can easily be grabbed. They are also likely to go after a woman with long hair. Women with short hair are not common targets.

    2] The second thing men look for is clothing. They will look for women who’s clothing is easy to remove quickly. Many of them carry scissors around to cut clothing.

    3] They also look for women using their cell phone, searching through their purse or doing other activities while walking because they are off guard and can be easily overpowered.

    4] The number one place women are abducted from / attacked at is grocery store parking lots.

    5] Number two is office parking lots/garages.

    6] Number three is public restrooms.

    7] The thing about these men is that they are looking to grab a woman and quickly move her to a second location where they don’t have to worry about getting caught.

    8] If you put up any kind of a fight at all, they get discouraged because it only takes a minute or two for them to realize that going after you isn’t worth it because it will be time-consuming.

    9] These men said they would not pick on women who have umbrellas,or other similar objects that can be used from a distance, in their hands.

    10] Keys are not a deterrent because you have to get really close to the attacker to use them as a weapon. So, the idea is to convince these guys you’re not worth it.

    POINTS THAT WE SHOULD REMEMBER:

    1] If someone is following behind you on a street or in a garage or with you in an elevator or stairwell, look them in the face and ask them a question, like what time is it, or make general small talk: can’t believe it is so cold out here, we’re in for a bad winter. Now that you’ve seen their faces and could identify them in a line- up, you lose appeal as a target.

    2] If someone is coming toward you, hold out your hands in front of you and yell Stop or Stay back! Most of the rapists this man talked to said they’d leave a woman alone if she yelled or showed that she would not be afraid to fight back. Again, they are looking for an EASY target.

    3] If you carry pepper spray (this instructor was a huge advocate of it and carries it with him wherever he goes,) yelling I HAVE PEPPER SPRAY and holding it out will be a deterrent.

    4] If someone grabs you, you can’t beat them with strength but you can do it by outsmarting them. If you are grabbed around the waist from behind, pinch the attacker either under the arm between the elbow and armpit or in the upper inner thigh – HARD. One woman in a class this guy taught told him she used the underarm pinch on a guy who was trying to date rape her and was so upset she broke through the skin and tore out muscle strands the guy needed stitches. Try pinching yourself in those places as hard as you can stand it; it really hurts.

    5] After the initial hit, always go for the groin. I know from a particularly unfortunate experience that if you slap a guy’s parts it is extremely painful. You might think that you’ll anger the guy and make him want to hurt you more, but the thing these rapists told our instructor is that they want a woman who will not cause him a lot of trouble. Start causing trouble, and he’s out of there.

    6] When the guy puts his hands up to you, grab his first two fingers and bend them back as far as possible with as much pressure pushing down on them as possible. The instructor did it to me without using much pressure, and I ended up on my knees and both knuckles cracked audibly.

    7] Of course the things we always hear still apply. Always be aware of your surroundings, take someone with you if you can and if you see any odd behavior, don’t dismiss it, go with your instincts. You may feel little silly at the time, but you’d feel much worse if the guy really was trouble.

    FINALLY, PLEASE REMEMBER THESE AS WELL ….

    1. Tip from Tae Kwon Do: The elbow is the strongest point on your body. If you are close enough to use it, do it.

    2. Learned this from a tourist guide to New Orleans : if a robber asks for your wallet and/or purse, DO NOT HAND IT TO HIM. Toss it away from you…. chances are that he is more interested in your wallet and/or purse than you and he will go for the wallet/purse. RUN LIKE MAD IN THE OTHER DIRECTION!

    3. If you are ever thrown into the trunk of a car: Kick out the back tail lights and stick your arm out the hole and start waving like crazy. The driver won’t see you but everybody else will. This has saved lives.

    4. Women have a tendency to get into their cars after shopping,eating, working, etc., and just sit (doing their checkbook, or making a list, etc. DON’T DO THIS! The predator will be watching you, and this is the perfect opportunity for him to get in on the passenger side,put a gun to your head, and tell you where to go. AS SOON AS YOU CLOSE the DOORS , LEAVE.

    5. A few notes about getting into your car in a parking lot, or parking garage:

    a. Be aware: look around your car as someone may be hiding at the passenger side , peek into your car, inside the passenger side floor, and in the back seat. ( DO THIS TOO BEFORE RIDING A TAXI CAB) .

    b. If you are parked next to a big van, enter your car from the passenger door. Most serial killers attack their victims by pulling them into their vans while the women are attempting to get into their cars.

    c. Look at the car parked on the driver’s side of your vehicle, and the passenger side. If a male is sitting alone in the seat nearest your car, you may want to walk back into the mall, or work, and get a guard/policeman to walk you back out. IT IS ALWAYS BETTER TO BE SAFE THAN SORRY. (And better paranoid than dead.)

    6. ALWAYS take the elevator instead of the stairs. (Stairwells are horrible places to be alone and the perfect crime spot).

    7. If the predator has a gun and you are not under his control, ALWAYS RUN! The predator will only hit you (a running target) 4 in 100 times; And even then, it most likely WILL NOT be a vital organ. RUN!

    8. As women, we are always trying to be sympathetic: STOP IT! It may get you raped, or killed. Ted Bundy, the serial killer, was a good-looking, well educated man, who ALWAYS played on the sympathies of unsuspecting women. He walked with a cane, or a limp, and often asked “for help” into his vehicle or with his vehicle, which is when he abducted his next victim.

    Send this to any woman you know that may need to be reminded that the world we live in has a lot of crazies in it and it’s better safe than sorry.
