Bad, Bill Cosby, and Donald Trump: Wagatwe Sara Wanjuki 3 hrs I won't say "Me, too." Partially because most of you know that' already. But mostly because we shouldn't have to "out" ourselves as survivors Because men have *always* seen the gendered violence happening around them (and/or being perpetrated by them)-they just haven't done anything about it. Because it shouldn't matter how many women, femmes, and gender neutral & non- conforming folk speak their truths. Post by @wagatwe. This is not to say that MeToo is a bad thing at all; just that, once again, the burden falls on the oppressed group (people who have been assaulted-harassed) to appeal to the moral sense of their oppressors. Also, to clarify, the emphasis on men in this post is not meant to imply that men cannot be raped or assaulted. Hereโ€™s a longer quote I really liked about all this: โ€œBefore Weinsteinโ€™s alleged sexual misconduct, it was Donald Trumpโ€™s. Before Trump, there was Bill Cosby and his half-century of woman accusers. Woody Allen, though determinedly sticking around in Hollywood, has been publicly accused by his own daughter of sexual abuse on a number of occasions. There are just no excuses anymore. We all know that sexual misconduct is a widespread epidemic in our world. So, why are we still asking women and other survivors to rip open their traumas to prove to us there is a problem we already know exists? And when will the problem finally be laid at the feet of those responsible to solve, instead of burdening survivors who have already endured so much?โ€ It is not our responsibility to rip open our wounds and expose our trauma in a solidarity ritual just so you can finally acknowledge there is a problem with menโ€™s violence toward women. We have been screaming into a void for centuries; Iโ€™m fairly certain one more round of begging isnโ€™t going to convince you the problem exists if you havenโ€™t already accepted it. For those people who have already used the MeToo hashtag to create some solidarity around their expeirences, or to heal some of their unacknowledged trauma: it is absolutely your right to do that. But just once I would like to see us NOT asking for women, or other oppressed people, to solve a problem that disproportionately affects us. We have already been through enough โ€” we cannot solve your sickness of sexual violence too.โ€ - Matilda Dixon-Smith @matildadixonsmith, โ€œWill We Ever Stop Asking Women And Survivors To Fix Rape Culture?โ€

Flexing, Memes, and Work: HOW TO HIP HINGE Neutral Spine @dr.jacob.harden IT'S ALL IN THE HIPS The hip hinge is a fundamental movement that all humans should know how to do. In day to day movement, the hinge helps you move safely and efficiently and distribute stress between the back and hips. It also is a great way for people with low back pain to move pain free.๐Ÿ˜ƒ . Why you should hinge comes down to simply having options. . There is nothing wrong with spinal flexion. It is a natural movement that we should be able to do. But just as we should be able to move with flexion, we should also be able to move without it. ๐Ÿ— The more variability we have, the more options we have in our movement. . If you can't hinge, you have no choice but to flex through your spine. And while that's fine to tie your ๐Ÿ‘Ÿshoes, it may not be the best way to move your couch or pick up a heavy deadlift, especially if you haven't trained loaded flexion. You need to know how to organize yourself and move efficiently when placed in higher stress situations so that you reduce your injury risk.๐Ÿ‹๏ธโ€โ™‚๏ธ . So if you need to work on your hinge, this is one of my favorite progressions. The key is to load into the hips and keep a neutral spine. It takes time to build this coordination so don't get frustrated if it doesn't come naturally at first. Keep practicing and you'll get it.โœŒโค .
