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.

7 Things Your Partner Can Do To Support You When You Have PCOS

Don't be afraid to ask for help or comfort if you need it.


Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) may not be totally visible to the eye, which makes it a lot harder for your partner to understand what's going on with your body.

If you are in a relationship, it's important that you communicate your PCOS symptoms with your partner. I say "your" symptoms specifically because everyone's symptoms are different.

I Watched 'The Social Dilemma' And YIKES, I'm Terrified For The Next Generation's Mental Health

Millennials can remember a time without online social affirmation, but we may be the last ones.

The Social Dilemma / Netflix

From part-time social media internships to full-time editorial work, I've continued to learn how to tell stories, write catchy headlines, and keep people interested. I believe working in media is a big responsibility, as well as a valuable way to advance our world.

One Indictment, Three Charges, And No Justice For Breonna Taylor

We can't settle for this decision or a system that is fundamentally broken and unequal.


On March 13, 26-year-old Breonna Taylor was fatally shot in her apartment by police who were executing a "no-knock" warrant. Since then, there have been rallying efforts both in the streets and on social media demanding justice for Taylor and keeping her name known.

I’m OK With Hooking Up On The First Date, But That DOESN'T Make Me Easy

2020 has been a crazy year. And yet, women being comfortable with our bodies still seems to be a big topic in mass media.


I'm an adult. There is no reason I can't have consensual sex with someone on the first date. It does NOT make me easy, and it does not mean I'll have sex with just anyone the first time I meet them.

I was so excited to vote in my local primary election in August. I eagerly researched my local candidates, combed the newspaper for profiles and policy positions, and shared infographics on Insta about voting deadlines. I considered myself a keen voter.

Nothing! There is no reason to feel guilty about food and nourishing your body. It's time to make peace with food and stop focusing on the "good" or "bad," "right" or "wrong" because food does not have power over you.

I Sat Down With An Endocrinologist To Ask All My Questions About Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

There are so many moving parts of hormonal health, so I went to an expert.

Anjanette Tan

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is an autoimmune disease that impacts approximately 1 in 10 women. Any woman who has PCOS can attest to the fact that no two cases are the same — there are so many aspects of hormonal health that can impact a woman's reproductive health! For many, PCOS is a trial and error condition, with many doctors' appointments depending on the stage of life the woman is in.

This week I sat down with Dr. Anjanette Tan to get the expert opinion on all my PCOS questions. Dr. Tan is a board-certified endocrinologist who's worked in private practices since 2004. She currently works at the Diabetes and Thyroid Center of Fort Worth, one of the largest all-endocrine practices in the area, where she is the managing partner and head of clinical research.

This $40 Silk Sleep Mask Gives Me The Best Sleep I've Ever Had — I Never Go Anywhere Without It

Crane And Canopy just redefined the meaning of "beauty sleep".


- Since I can remember, I've always been a light sleeper, with the quietest sounds waking me up, and I regularly wake up with the sun.

- While talking to a gynecologist friend of mine, she mentioned the importance of using an eye mask for quality sleep, which regulates hormonal levels.

- I was serendipitously sent the Crane & Canopy Silk Sleep Mask almost right after that conversation and was honestly reluctant to try it after testing other sleep masks that felt uncomfortable and irritated my skin.

- This sleep mask was extremely comfortable, and for the first time in nearly a decade, I slept in far past when I usually do on the weekends and woke up feeling more refreshed than I can remember — I've worn it nearly every night since then.

The older I get, it seems that sleep becomes an increasingly important topic of conversation amongst my friends and me. Yes, of course we complain about how tired we always are, but the pattern seemed to be a lack of sleep on the weekdays followed by late nights and sleeping in on the weekends without any solution.
