More Men Should Be Like Terry Crews And Join The #MeToo Movement

Men coming out as rape victims isn't a joke.

54

Terry Crews was recently trending because of the Twitter argument he had with D.L Hughley. This raised a lot of arguments concerning masculinity and how it affects rape cases, and this specifically affected Terry Crews because of the sexual harassment case he filed against one of his agents. Many people, especially African-American men, believe that as a man, you should be in control at all times, which also means that there should not be any situation where you should be found looking weak.

They do not believe that a man could be assaulted, especially a man like Terry Crews, seeing that he is of huge and muscular build. This is the reason why he has been really active in speaking against masculinity and what it really means.

Rape is not an issue that should be taken lightly, no matter what gender, race, or ethnicity the victim is.

Most people believe that men cannot be raped. They see men as the dominant figures in most situations, so this makes it really hard for men who have been raped to speak out against their abusers.

People just find it hard to believe that men are found in situations like this because they are the ones who are believed to hold all the power.

When news of Terry's sexual assault suit broke out, most people were left in doubt. People genuinely didn't believe a man like this could be abused. But the reality is that nobody knows what the actual victim went through in that situation, and even though we might feel like we are trying to help, making assumptions of what they should have done or giving pointers on how they could have avoided it is really the wrong way to do it.

It is seriously amazing that Terry Crews is speaking out against the stereotypes attached to men being sexually harassed by joining the #MeToo movement.

He is paving a path for other men to come out of hiding and speak out against their abusers by saying that men can be abused, too.

I hope people will hop on this ride and stop stereotyping men that come out as rape victims as "weak" because they are not, and Terry Crews is proving that fact. They deserve to be helped the same way any other rape victim is helped.

Elijah McClain's Case Is Being Reopened — His Family Is Still Waiting For Justice

Despite COVID-19, Alabamans Return To Beaches

Noncompliance with CDC recommendations on beaches may contribute to outbreaks in Republican-controlled states.

Last week, I was in Orange Beach, AL. It, along with other Alabama beaches, seems to be quickly becoming a hotspot for coronavirus (COVID-19) cases, yet one could not discern this by observing the behavior of beachgoers. The situation on the ground was absolutely bonkers, and no one seemed to even be aware of the ongoing pandemic. Several restaurants that my family and I frequently visit on our annual trips to the beach had closed their doors this year due to an employee or employees contracting the virus. But at the ones that remained open, people neither wore masks nor maintained social distance.

A Vote For ANYONE Other Than Biden Is A Vote Against Someone You Love

We cannot afford a repeat of 2016’s botched election right now.

On Saturday, Kanye West announced on Twitter that he would be running for president in the 2020 election. It is hard to tell for sure if he is joking and this is all a publicity stunt or if he is serious. People were quick to point out that he had already missed the deadline to officially add his name to many states' ballots for the general election. Regardless, voters are still legally allowed to write in Kanye's name on their ballot, and there's a possibility that many young voters will do so.
