Claire, who unreservedly puts herself last, and is sweet to a fault, is about the last woman I ever expect to see in a fistfight. The teen needs help, not legal trouble, she said. Then I was asked the following week again, by the same person. Growing trend Some observers — including the New Jersey mother behind the creation of Megan's Law — are criticizing the trend of prosecuting teens who send racy text messages or post illicit photos of themselves. We literally tore each other apart in a storm that seemed to rip through our souls. Milgram, the attorney general, could not recall another such case in New Jersey.
What a simple and revolutionary alternative! Thank you for adding to the chorus of voices singing our souls back home. And my immediate reaction, what I felt was the safest reaction, was to be nice. The flipside of nice is not nasty. I learned to hide my feelings, be accommodating and have no desires.
But I am a kind woman today. Thank you for sharing your deeply profound, indeed radical words. Calling these fierce and powerful beings by such names is as much a request as anything else. And so did your nice vs.
I love how you ask us to transform this need to be nice into being kind. Thank you so much for this post. Learnt it the hard way. To look him in the eye and ask him why he thought it was okay to touch me without my consent. But we never hear of a Goddess being nice.
I think this is a major cultural moment of refinding what boundaries, kindess and self-love really means. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. Maureen Kanka — whose daughter, Megan, became the law's namesake after she was raped and killed at age 7 in 1994 by a twice-convicted sex offender — blasted authorities for charging the 14-year-old girl. Your words are so powerful and so right on.
Thank you for your inspiration! Open up to a page in this shared tome to find a hand-pressed flower, words of comfort, or a small glen of inspiration for your day. Nice girls are quiet when injustices happen, especially to their own selves. I was a nice girl. I am from Holland and it is a little difficult for me to write in English.
I thought it meant to be conceited and selfish. It is a new day and a new me. She should have an intervention and counseling, because the only person she exploited was herself. I think most women are kind, too often maybe.
Thank you so much for the life-changing inspiration! To explain how broken and powerless and triggered I felt. And every time I do, I feel stronger and more empowered. So I said no again! I learned to not have an opinion and not talk back or defend myself. This hits me so deeply. It is time for transformation.
Racy pictures In northeastern Pennsylvania, a prosecutor recently threatened to file child porn charges against three teenage girls who authorities say took racy cell-phone pictures that ended up on classmates' cell phones. So next time you feel pressure to say yes when you want to say no. Can you imagine the wave of change that will occur when we all commit to this task? Prosecutors in states including Pennsylvania, Connecticut, North Dakota, Ohio, Utah, Vermont, Virginia and Wisconsin have tried stop it by charging teens who send and receive the pictures. I appreciate you writing out your possible kind response.
