Trey Songz Needs To Pay The Price For Allegedly Assaulting Keke Palmer And Others

As a society, we have a major issue when it comes to how we handle sexual assault and harassment. Things have gotten better since the #METOO movement, but we still are not believing women in the way we should.

Victim blaming needs to stop right now. we need to change the view that it is just a societal issue we will always have, and start having the mindset that we will fight for our safety until we get it.

Women have been taught to be nice, quiet, and gentle so much so that when they use their voice to speak up about what is wrong it is viewed as unnecessarily aggressive, overreacting, or a lie.

So when Keke spoke up about her not wanting the video and how Trey didn't have her permission people had some strong views about the situation.

" dumb ass bitch Keke made trey take her out the video" -randomgirltv

"I'm glad Keke stood up for herself ✊🏾" -Angeline T

" I would have understood if she was half-naked or something but she was wearing a coat. She's trying to start some drama over nothing." -amelie1416

"Any woman in their right mind that can think about hiding in a closet can take their grown-ass outside of a big house and wait for their so-called uber that she didnt know was going to come in time if the video inside goes outside" -S E

"trey is smart. he don't want no problems with paying this bitch. the bitch is a lier. she knew what was going on when she saw the cameras and lights." -randomgirltv

"Keke said NO in private...Trey Songz didn't listen and took it as a YES she had every right to then respond publicly to make it known that she did not agree to be a part of the video. He totally violated her rights and it makes him look desperate and dirty as an artist. I have lost a lot of respect for Trey as a "man". I don't care what he used or how short the time frame was...NO simply means NO!" -Tamara Harris

These were just a few of the comments under Trey Songz's "Pick Up The Phone" video. Even after allegations against him came out from multiple women people still said he could have done nothing wrong.

He should be held accountable for his actions. It is time we listen to the victims without tearing them apart and we need to start questioning their abusers.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
