A hypocrisy.

Both atheists and Christians argue that they are the minority. That they are the ones that are belittled by each other. Each continue to make fun of and pick at each other. 

“I’m being prosecuted.” says the Christian.

“They’re attacking me.” says the atheist.

While each side wants to be left alone, both keep stepping into each others territory. Each has their reasons.  And each side plays the victim. 

With this thought, do what you will with it.

Just don’t prosecute my belief.

Indeed! 🙌 Ladies, release the need for approval from others & you will soon feel the power you possess. Life should not be a flakey popularity contest which is fake & unfulfilling but a journey of truth, strength, and integrity. Be BOLD and stand ALONE if you have to. 💪Strong women don’t play the victim card, they don’t make themselves look pitiful, they don’t blame others for how they feel, they stand up and OWN it. VALIDATE YOURSELF. You ARE powerful! 🙋👑 #bitchesbelike

Victim Culture Documentary Cancelled for 2015

Cruelteafree was wrong about the timing for the honest and open discussion about Victim Culture that we developed.

The expose documentary we developed on:
-the three cycles of victim culture;
-the failures and successes of victim services;
-the responsibility on the victim to avoid becoming a victimizer;
-the reasons that public opinion has committed to blaming the victims for their suffering;
-identifying how rapists, racists, homophobes and religious dogma seek to victimize innocent people while hiding in plain sight;
seems to be beyond what audiences are ready for.  

We’ve lost huge numbers of followers, and have been receiving hate mail.

The irony that cruelteafree has been shunned by the tumblr community for attempting a documentary about how society shuns victims is not lost on our creative director.
(They have since submitted their resignation as creative director.) 

Cruelteafree is a humble, independent group of artists that need the support of our audience.  If we were so targeted for attempting such a media project, then it is clear to see why the mainstream media has avoided this subject.

Cruelteafree is sorry to anyone who is not a racist, homophobe, rapist or who uses religious dogma to victimize.

Most of all we are heartbroken that we can’t go forward and create a voice for the many people that actually wanted this documentary to get made. Our goal is to find a way to create this project in the future, it just isn’t likely to happen this year.

Thanks to those of you who have shown your support!

so it happened. I met brandon flowers. the man who has changed my life in more ways than I could ever count. I’m having a hard time even putting into words how much this means to me. who would have thought that listening to maroon 5 pandora radio on a normal fall day in 2011 (my first time ever using pandora!) would have brought about something like this? this man introduced the one thing in my life that always remains constant: my love and passion for music. this man created outlets for me to escape from the toughest parts of my life. he got me through my parents divorce. he got me through my house
burning down and losing everything. he got me through a difficult battle with Crohn’s Disease. he has introduced me to the greatest family i have ever been apart of, the victim family. his incredible lyricism has shaped so many of my views on life. the feeling that his music, whether it’s The Killers or just as Brandon Flowers, gives me is indescribable. it’s like his voice just flips a happy switch in my brain.
here’s how it happened….I was at mo pop festival in Detroit and long story short my friends and I found out that 89x (a local radio station) was having a meet and greet for him. my friend staci and I (who had become friends through the killers and were only at this festival because of brandon) immediately started crying. fast forward a few hours and we got in line. it started pouring. like the type of pouring rain where you can’t see properly. we were rained on for a good 20 minutes before we made it up to the tent. I was the first to go out of my group of friends and I was honestly speechless. I wasn’t sure what to do when I got to him because I was soaking wet but he still hugged me. I said “I’m sorry I’m soaked” but he didn’t care. I was so in shock I couldn’t say anything and he asked me if I wanted him to sign the paper I had. he signed it as well as wrote a lyric for me… “dreams come true”. that’s the name of one of his solo songs and it just seemed fitting because my dream was literally coming true. I also gave him flowers (a vendor was passing them out at the festival, they had a tag on them that said “you’re #kindaawesome” 😂😂😂) as well as a letter that I honestly didn’t think I was going to be able to give him. he was so sweet even though everything was being rushed. I ended up missing out on his performance because of a storm but at that moment I didn’t care that much cuz I had just met him and I’m also seeing him in a few days on his tour. I can’t even begin to imagine how magical it’s going to be.
so yeah. that’s the story that has been four years in the making. and I hope there’s more to come. ⚡️🌼
