David's Bridal files for bankruptcy

Social media civil rights activist Tarana Burke wants you to know that on some days she feels BIG, BLACK and POWERFUL.

Burke, 45, is best known for coining the phrase "Me Too" to combat unwanted sexual advances and sexual assaults from men in the workplace and in public.

The Bronx native was sexually assaulted in the housing projects where she lived as a child and again as a teenager.

The #MeToo hashtag took on new meaning in 2017 following the Harvey Weinstein sexual abuse allegations.

Burke is paid to make public speeches around the country about sexual harassment and she is also Senior Director at Girls for Gender Equality in Brooklyn.

  • Peppermint Patty

    Ok I'm stating the obvious here but with all the advances in modern day make up and medicine she needs a good MUA and a few laser treatments

  • Coy little wink

    Yes...I drink cheap wine myself ?

  • ClaireHuxtable

    I don't understand that either. I saw the Mona Lisa in person and was terribly unimpressed.

    There's been a shooting at Mercy hospital in Chicago. There may be at least two people dead.

  • WhoKnew

    Getting ready for Thanksgiving. Got the table set yesterday (took hours to wash the china, silverware, etc.I put a tablecloth over the table to keep the dust at bay until Thursday. I texted my family yesterday and said I'm hungry already so don't be late with the food on Thanksgiving day! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/93b714c011cf5bcf1aace3cb70b93b391fc2b041e446868c4af6b0fa0add7b2f.jpg

    Well I went to a wine tasting and the best wine to me was actually the priciest bottle...but it was an icewine (i like sweet wine) they are more expensive

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    I think Sandra should do a write up what to do when you encounter an active shooter outside or inside a building.

  • ClaireHuxtable

  • Dr. P

    ?

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    Including the cop, there are 6 possible shooting victims... the cop, the gunman, a woman/girlfriend, and two others (patients/employees).

  • Renee26

    Amen to that!!

  • Renee26

    Omg let me check on my coworkers

  • Ghost

    Wow!! I wonder what the hell happened. Its kind of isolated over there since Michael Reese Hospital closed...waiting for more updates. Wonder was it domestic?

  • ClaireHuxtable

    You probably got a rich & sofistocated pallet, Wink.

  • WhoKnew

    Sounds like a very good idea because I think I know what to do but in a panic I might lose it and do all the wrong things.

  • WhoKnew

    That's funny! LOL. Enjoy your holiday!

  • WhoKnew

    Are your people okay? I just checked the news and it said there was shooting inside and outside of the hospital with at least 4 people in critical condition, including one police officer. Wow. Now they're shooting inside hospitals where sick people are? These are truly some worrisome and awful times. Hope your people are okay.

  • dontgetblocked

    Why do black women always have to have such a hard image? Why can't we be delicate flowers like a blonde Becky. Don't be straight forward and crass. Manipulate a situation and use our feminine wiles like a Snow Bunny.

    i used to love that 'old country rose' china pattern... your table is beautiful.

  • Fodderwing

    I am always stunned at the level of self control they must have!!! Any bottle of wine is fair game in my house. Which is why there isn’t any. Aside from what I’m drinking. ????

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    They say it started as a domestic call. A woman, allegedly the gunman's girlfriend, was the 1st person shot. The gunman's body is still in the hospital.

  • Fodderwing

    Bwahahaha!!

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    Lovely! On that day, may you never see the bottom of your plate!

  • SumthinSweeter

    Why this make me laugh?
    But I've always heard the longer it ages the better it taste. But it's not supposed to be the corner store or Wal-Mart type of wine. Has to be the good stuff and the good stuff is nasty asf to me but will get you very buzzed a lot quicker than you think.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Thank you! U 2!!

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    They interviewed a Mercy hospital employee who said, he refused to leave his patients, because they are disabled. I work for a hospital and we were told, in the case of an active shooter, leave the patients who are unable to run, and save yourself.

  • SumthinSweeter

    lmaooooooo... I am so guilty of that. I love Pier One candles but never burn them. They are for decoration only. But them Glade candles.... I keeps them lit.

  • SumthinSweeter

    Wow. I work in a hospital too but not with patients directly. I'm in a secured area. Our active shooter training was changed up a little for our department. Either before my shift ends tonight or by tomorrow morning, I know we will have a hospital wide email from the CEO or someone higher up regarding the situation there in Chicago. Smh. Scary times.

  • Ryan

    It's good that she's confident enough in herself that she didn't use a filter.

    But maybe she should have.

    ?????

  • WhoKnew

    I'm going to try not to. I tend to have the "eyes bigger than stomach syndrome". But yeah, I already know what I'm making, I know what the fam is bringing so yeah, it's my goal not to see the bottom of the plate! Happy holiday to you and be safe!

  • Boonella

    How is this a "we" situation based on her pictures. I have plenty pictures of me being delicate....not like blonde Becky...because that's not my thing....but I have seen some HARD FACED Becky's....I am a delicate flower like Forever First Lady Michelle Obama......

  • WhoKnew

    That's great news! Stay safe!

  • ThisIsWhat43LooksLike

    Classy and beautiful!! That’s also my wedding china pattern ?

  • What???

    Michelle Obama herself said she’s an angry mean tempered woman. There’s nothing delicate in her body except her ego.

  • Boonella

    She never said that so STOP lying....There's plenty of delicate things about her....You're mad....that's too bad.

    The woman shot in the parking lot, is a doctor!

  • WhoKnew

    I recently went on Amazon looking for a bacon grease can and decided to buy Ayesha Curry's enamel bacon grease can. It doesn't take up a lot of counter or fridge space and it's very sturdy but it did not come with a strainer and that was disappointing. In addition to wanting to store bacon grease for later use for home fries or gravy, I don't want to have to use a paper towel as a strainer, which I am having to do with this can. I tried to buy a strainer but it didn't quite fit. :o(

    No man wants that kind of female. She's just being tolerated.

  • CaramelDrop

    Who you can just buy cheese cloth over the top of the container when your pouring your grease. Cheese cloth is less than .99. You can use it to strain anything, it’s a staple in my kitchen.

    You’re fancy, Hell, I store my bacon grease in my old deep fryer.

  • Y me?

    I don't think she can treat this. Or at least thats the only reasonable conclusion i can think of as to why someone who is deliberately in the public eye wouldn't address this issue. But then again maybe some folks just don't care. Derrick rose also has noticeably bad skin and he has hundreds of millions and doesn't bother to fix his either

  • WhoKnew

    Just saw an update on Teriyaki 69 and apparently the feds have been watching and collecting info on him since 2013 according to the 17 page indictment. This boy ain't neva gonna see the light of day as the charges carry upwards of 100 years in prison. Ninjas will neva learn.

  • joel adams

    Nawl. Big black n ugly

  • Li-Wright

    I'm sorry....but even Patti Labelle had a nose job. This woman is in the public, she's a celebrity....she needs to do better. At least get her skin scrubbed.

  • Li-Wright

    So much for being a rapper.

  • IamAllnatural

    So true, I don’t participate either. I work at a facility full of germs and I see so many of my coworkers eat without washing their hands. So I can only imagine them going straight home from work and preparing a dish without bathing and washing their hands.

  • Li-Wright

    Yes she does. She can do what Patti Labelle did. And her skin needs a good dermabrasion.

  • IamAllnatural

    If a man can’t handle a strong woman, then I don’t want his weak a$$ anyway.

  • IamAllnatural

    First she needs to stop wearing makeup because it’s not helping her skin. With all the advanced medical technology, I’m sure there’s something that can improve her skin.

  • Ryan

    I have a co-worker who bakes and she has two cats. Have seen the cat hair on her clothes. I take a piece and wrap it in a paper towel and dump it in the trash when she leaves.

  • WhoKnew

    Feds say he and his associates also were hawking heroin, fentanyl, MDMA and marijuana all over NYC. He is supposed to have a bail hearing tomorrow. I hope they deny him bail. If they do, he will stay in jail until his trial. He prolly sitting there like damn I really effed up this time.

  • Malcom Flex

    Right?!

  • Malcom Flex

    She has the money and connections to fix that mess I guess she is truly mentally ill and maybe sees something other than what we do when she looks in the mirror. BW need to stop co signing when sistas looking a hot mess.

  • MsPam

    I’m sorry but why do black folks act like being Black and Bold is something new?! Do people remember the 60’s 70’s and they didn’t have to remind yt folks or themselves that Black, Big, Proud and Beautiful always was in?! Folks walking around with T-shirt saying how educated, a Queen they are?! If you’re educated and a Queen people will know it by the way you carry yourself.

  • GuestSTAR

    A Sprite girl who works with me likes to jog on her lunch hour. Mind you, there are no showers on the premises so she comes back to the office stinking like a mixture of sweat & azz. One time my back was turned away and she was behind me standing at someone's cubicle and I smelled her. Her face looks like peanut brittle, likely from not washing it properly. THIS SAME GIRL brought in some homemade bacon wrapped Jalapenos to the Halloween potluck and people ate them, SMDH. I will only eat the store bought food, i.e., dips, wraps, wings.

  • GuestSTAR

    LMAO @ "maybe sees something other than what we do when she looks in the mirror".

  • DeJeri

    what restaurant?

  • DeJeri

    She should shower after working out....and use some witchazel.

  • Malcom Flex

    Agreed. Why do black people enable BW to look hot messes no other race of people go around lying and gassing up their women when they're a mess. Fat azz Mama June got dissed bigtime by whites so bad she had the surgery to reduce.

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    Potlucks and instagram shows just how horrible some of these folks can cook and some of those women are married feeding it to their husband YUCK

  • Fodderwing

    Awww. Come on now. Here’s the deal with the lady and major props for her self love. She absolutely could pay for alladat facial re-upping we are all so sick of. She’s the type of woman who (my sister is this way so ???)...is so damn intelligent and founded in the fact she is celebrated for her genius (and this is proven through all her civic work) that she does NOT want the bs that follows fakery. She is not fake. She has a mob of people who support her soul and not her capsoul (capsul/body), that it would be a betrayal of her own dignity and self esteem to ever give her outward appearance a second thought. And maybe...she’s challenging us to embrace the same state of mind.

    This prop-kid is a ready made pawn by the organized crime syndicate (Nine-Trey) that used him as a tax write off. Lol. Just add food color hair dye and some rainbow greeeelz...then press play. Dude was created as a tax loss for money laundering...he won’t be able to commit to the parameters set up by his “label”...and already tried to break his tour obligations by firing his PR and management team...and he is worth more dead than alive bc we all know insurance pay offs make everyone happy.

    I’d be super mad if I sat for however long she did and wound up with the results she got. Like. Really? This is as good as it gets!!?? Or maybe it was embellished. Like. Old school filters. And she was stoked bc she looked amazing. Bc she didn’t. Omg. I may need to go to be bed now.
    Sorry if that didn’t make sense. But I can’t delete it bc I think it’s funny.

  • T Willis

    Light skin beauties? Why does her self confidence have to be a facade? And who is intimidated by a “light skin beauty”? Beauty comes in all shades, and when you are confident and successful, no outer beauty can change that.

  • T Willis

    If MC current album flops, I don’t know if she’ll be around by 2020.

  • T Willis

    Lol smh maybe she loves what she sees in the mirror. ?????
    I admire people that are able to see beauty in what others perceive as flaws.

  • T Willis

    Lol black women do not shame easily. You can create a whole documentary on “Good Hair”, outlining the detriments of relaxers and the psychological effects it has on future generations, and they will still be swinging that “silky” relaxed hair like the blonde bimbos on the L’Oréal commercials. You can outline all the detriments for obesity and high blood pressure, yet they will still avoid the gym like the plague and #BBW. And just in the other post, you had black chicks saying how they don’t breast freed and are proud of it. Black women are delusional and no amount shaming will change that. They are just inheritedly stubborn and @$$ backwards....
    so, good luck trying to convince them otherwise.

  • T Willis

    Lol you’re not completely wrong, but, I wonder if there’s more to her skin issues and she’s just trying to love herself and her flaws? I’m trying not to bash this woman because I don’t know her medical issues or trauma that’s brought her to this point of “self-love”. You know everyone has a testimony.

  • the guest

    Gang life. He never had a chance. He was born into gang life. His father was a gang banger who was murdered when Tekashi was 12. Tekashi took over from there supporting his mother and younger sibling.

    When these record labels sign certified gang bloods and crips, the labels should buy these affiliated artists out of their gang affiliation and obligations. Fame doesn’t protect them from having to work and make quota.

    This is sad because instead of saving him from the streets, the industry exploited his gang affiliation. Be overprotective parents because gangs target even good kids from good areas, good families, and good homes.

  • the guest

    Sad but so true.

  • the guest

    I think he’s sitting there devastated by what he was born into. People born into gang life don’t just get to get out and go to college. Even his talent couldn’t save him from gang ties.

    This is tragic actually.

    If Jeremy Meeks felon bae wasn’t rescued by a billionaire’s daughter, he’d still be gang banging. She also bought the media because they stopped reporting that Meeks is a third generation (grandfather, father, himself and his brother) affiliated gang banger.

  • the guest

    There are some feminists who think it’s cute to be ugly. Like they try to make themselves ugly on purpose. Don’t understand that mentality.

    No one needs to have pockmarks these days. There are filler treatments.

  • the guest

    Speak!!!

  • the guest

    How inconsiderate of her to not even wash up before getting back into the office. If there’s a sink, soap, and a towel she doesn’t need to bring her stink into the office. She thinks it’s fitness cute walking around sweaty and smelling. I bet the white co workers tell her how much they admire her.

  • the guest

    People like that let their cat sit on the counter and stove.

  • WhoKnew

    Very cool!

  • WhoKnew

    OMG. If she doesn't shower after a run do not and I mean do not eat any food she prepares.

  • WhoKnew

    One thing I can't stand is people who come to work stinking or won't shower after a lunchtime jog.

  • Faithz

    I know that's right!!!

  • WhoKnew

    Thank you. Enjoy your holiday too!

  • WhoKnew

    We go to different family member's homes every holiday and the same people will show up, eat and dip when it's time to clean up and wash dishes. So this year my sister said I'm tired of always having to be on clean-up detail. She said you need to send an email asking everyone to pitch in and help. We'll see if the same people get up and try to leave because if they do they are very graciously going to be asked to stay and help clean up.

  • WhoKnew

    Ummm, it's Thanksgiving...I just don't see that happening..let me know how that works out for you! LOL.

    exactly!!

  • T Willis

    You know what’s funny and sad about your comment? The fact that you think that no (black) man would be proud to have this woman on his arm because of her facial scarring. I wonder, if this woman was non-black would you feel the same way? Omari Hardwick from Power, have you seen his wife? That woman is far from beautiful in any regard, but Omari loves her & is proud to show her off on the red carpet. Have you seen Cuba Gooding Jr’s ex wife? I mean, I could on and on. It seems like only black women get shamed for being less than beautiful, but then black men like yourself hook up with some of the most hideous, bad built, non-black monstrosities on God’s creation. Yet, *this* woman is deserving of your ire and ugly comments? Please stop. Black men are the last ones that should utter a word when it comes beauty or femininity, especially given the non-black women that most of y’all end up with - the Rosie O’Donnell lookalikes complete with rosecea, cystic acne, and obesity.

    Been three double murders in Atlanta in less than a week and a crew of teenagers “Gun drum killers”and off shoot of the Gangster Killer Bloods..arrested for multiple murders they did last year wonder how man they have shot and killed before they got caught??

  • T Willis

    Well, try explaining that logic to your cohorts, because it’s evident to me, and millions of other women, that most black men don’t have eyes discerning enough to identify beauty or femininity.

  • Stationarity

    Beautiful! I am saving your words for inspiration! THANK YOU!!!

  • sunni_daze

    Her face look like pancake batter in a hot pan, right before you flip it over.

  • sunni_daze

    She did one on her.

  • SpillyNillie

    Ms. Tarana seems happy in Her Skin. I'm sure can afford to get her skin repaired but she chooses not to, which says a lot....

  • Reina1718

    Ouch

  • the conscious one

    There is nothing wrong with this woman. I'll rather see a black woman accept herself in totality than one getting surgeries or bleaching their skin. If you don't like it move on, why do you feel the need to be so ugly and leave negative comments? Self love is mandatory and too many black women don't have it.

  • supastar

    BOL! see... I was focused until this. LOLOLOL I hate you right now.

  • supastar

    BOL gimmie your phone! LOLOLOL

  • garrisonville

    i SWEAR i'm not tryna be mean....nevermind, forget it.

  • sunni_daze

    LLS

  • Guess Who

    Is she related to KRS-One? She is shockingly ugly.

    Yeah, yeah, yeah...I know what she's doing, her intelligence and personality have ZERO to do with her looks...I'm just saying, she's ugly asf.

    I already KNOW she is an activist and coined the "Me too" catchphrase. I get all that.

    I also get she suffered terribly from black heads and cystic acne. I understand all of that. Yep, ugly as sin.

  • Guess Who

    speak your mind!

  • McKay

    ??? You are too much. Lol

  • Guess Who

    So we can't think this woman is ugly and say it?

  • Guess Who

    LOL I said the same thing.

    La La la la la la la la la laaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
    la la la la la la la lalalalaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

  • Katandra Witter

    Dr. Pimple Popper is an actual person...

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    Well I know she is ugly and when yo my take that paint off and weaves it’s usually ugly under all that

  • BaileyBlue17

    The moon called...it wants its craters back!!. #SorrynotSorry

  • SJ

    Excellent points!

    You are too smart. Don't waste your intellect. I don't think that person you're responding to has the ability to comprehend what you're saying. I'm not even trying to be funny.

  • BaileyBlue17

    Lol. I almost spit my coffee out. I got a visual as soon as I read this!! LOL

  • T Willis

    Lol thank you. Yes, he’s a mess lol smh

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    Well I agree because the majority of black men date black women

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    I wish I could move some where were the blacks love one another and have each backs and look out for each other in a world where whites hate us but I know this is NEVER possible.

  • T Willis

    That majority has been on a steep decline in the last 20-30 years. Take a walk outside and you’ll see ...

  • Y me?

    I think shes the type of person who ur first thought on seeing her is wow she's ugly. But then u read all the amazing things she's doing and you realize she doesn't "deserve " that type of criticism (i feel like its wrong to insult "good" people in that way)

    But i guess yall dgaf on here lol

  • dru and neil

    Kind of like that midget on the stilts in Shallow Hal. He was loveable and kind and looks mattered only to the evil people in the movie.

  • mona q

    Self love is the best love! Some very attractive people don’t even have it!?????

  • Ryan

    Nasty azzes.

  • dru and neil

    Everyone is very eager to call Winnie Harlow ugly when there’s a post about her and she’s got a skin condition that she can’t help too, people ARE NOT above it on this site.

  • Michelle

    Can a dermatologist fix that face? I wonder if makeup primers can fill in the gaps.

  • GrapeCrush

    Right!

  • NuBeauty

    You should be banned from the internet....I wasn't going to go there because I love me some black self love but this comment right here.....I'm weak, LMAO!!!!

  • Kimocha

    I love this woman's confidence!... Love it, love it, love it!... There's a lot of us in our 40's and over who still tryna find it!

  • the conscious one

    The better question is why do you need to say that?

  • Miss Thang

    because Winnie Harlow's entire function is in the BEAUTY industry as a MODEL. She solely capitalizes off of her looks. We didn't force her into that role, she willed herself into that role. She's not the first and certainly wont be the last person who makes money off their looks who will be criticized on their "work" i.e. ability to look good.

  • Renee26

    Right lol

  • Miss Thang

    omg this advice belongs in the 1980's. These are scars. It doesn't matter if she never drinks a soda. They aren't going away.

  • Miss Thang

    are you a doctor? "scrubbed"? are you suggesting she scrub her skin like dirty dishes?

  • Miss Thang

    because "all our lives we had to fight" our fathers, brothers, uncles, and cousins. Unfortunately, it develops a tough shell around some of us.

  • Guess Who

    Because I wanted to and felt like it. Just like you wanted to and felt the need to ask me why I said this or the reason why you post comments on any blogs. Because I can. ???????????

  • Guess Who

    Yep. Or talk about Beyonce's wig, how ghetto Cardi is, How Blac Chyna's azz droops. Any one can get it and that is what happens on blogs. Folks post opinions, make comments, ask questions. Some are more fuked up than others, some are fuked up, yet TRUE, some are stupid, insightful, etc. ..but that is what you do on blogs. Why folks are in there feelings cape'in for this woman is beyond me.

  • dru and neil

    Well I will be honest, yes she is a fighter and a trailblazer, but she is one of the ugliest women I’ve ever seen. This picture above is actually not too awful because of the angle and make up of course, but yes, she was not blessed aesthetically. She may have a beautiful soul, but no she’s not good looking, people are full of sh*t. Another thing, people have a tendency to praise a woman’s looks if she is dark skinned, even if she’s not truly attractive, because they don’t want to be part of the colorism problem, if you want real honesty there it is...

  • speakinmymind

    @Nu...ditto!...weak...can't type??????????????

  • the conscious one

    Good for you. You came on my comment, so you got my response like it or not. Go be messy somewhere else.

  • Guess Who

    IDGAF about your comment, sir. I was simply telling you why I chose to say what I said. No you go be petty somewhere else, HOEtep.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    The post title and post content would read: "If you encounter an active shooter outside or inside a building - RUN!!!"

  • Wayup!

    I think the only thing wrong with her is that her skin is horrible..other then that it appears as if people have taken this opportunity to accuse her of all types of treachery just because she isn't their cup of tea and she chose to take a selfie??? But the same people praise Cardi like whatttttttt?????
    Okay she aint pretty why cant she say something positive about herself?
    This reminds me of when Gaborey Sidibe was saying how comfortable she felt in her own skin right BEFORE she got weight lose surgery and people bashed her for feeling kinda okay with herself and she spoke on it and then what did she do? some say rightfully so but if she could do a whole movie like she was …
    If we can let people like Ariana and Cardi puma eyebrowed surprised face be...

  • Mister Fantastic

    Why wear make up when you have those craters.

  • Fodderwing

    Yeah but cut her a lil slack!

  • Eileen

    What is totality when you have issues with your health! She needs to get to a dermatologist...

  • Guess Who

    100% nailed it!

  • Poison Ivy

    Oh, shut up. You’re pathetically shallow. Go play in a kiddie pool where you belong. ?

  • Poison Ivy

    Who knows. Nothing can fix your shallow, ugly brain, that’s for sure.

  • Poison Ivy

    Why exist when you’re so misogynist?

  • Poison Ivy

    At least she’s not a loser. Unlike you. ?

  • Poison Ivy

    Aww, so you’re ugly and bitter. How’s that working out for you? ?

  • Poison Ivy

    No one cares. My goodness, you ARE jealous that she’s getting attention, aren’t you? ?

  • Poison Ivy

    Or you’re a sex abuse survivor and just plain appreciate her work and don’t give af how she looks.

  • Poison Ivy

    Then shut up. :)

  • Poison Ivy

    Having pores isn’t a health issue. Neither is having scars on one’s face. Holy crap, what is wrong with you? ?

  • Poison Ivy

    You can do both. Just don’t get fragile when the rest of us laugh at you for being shallow, bitter and jealous. ?

  • Poison Ivy

    So you have no impulse control. That sounds like a personal problem. You need psychological help. ???

  • Poison Ivy

    Um. Do you understand what the word “petty” means? Because you’ve used it completely wrong here.

    Anyway, you sound like a rapist. Shut up. ?

  • Poison Ivy

    Okay, rapist. ?

  • Poison Ivy

    And you sound like a rapist. Oops.

  • Poison Ivy

    Blah blah blah. You sound like a rapist.

  • Poison Ivy

    Stop talking, your opinions are crap.

  • Poison Ivy

    ? Shut up. You sound like a rapist.

  • Poison Ivy

    I’m sure she’d laugh in your face if you asked her. As would any woman. ?

  • Poison Ivy

    You first, Freakazoid.

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    Are you a tranny?

  • Y me?

    Is that u in the icon?

  • Guess Who

    And you look like a school shooter whose origins are that of a carnival trash exhibit and his daughter. That wild turkey and two mayo sammichs was all that it took for your mother to offer all of her holes to her father/uncle, huh?

    Bravo!

    Now....back to your water dish and stick to things you specialize in: b*stiality, Hot Topic clothing and rimming dirty arsed bums for sport.

  • Guess Who

    Hey, troglodyte...it's not our fault you were born without opposable thumbs but born with a face that can carve yet another president out on Mt. Rushmore.

    We get it. You are an "Un". Unloved, unwanted, unneeded, unattractive. We know, we can tell. That is why you are commenting all on this topic, in your feelings.

    Tell you what, people repellent....well, sucks to be you.

    Continue on stalking the board, weird bish, lol, as we know that is the ONLY attention you will get.

  • Guess Who

    Probably. Most spawn of trashy pecks look like that...

  • Poison Ivy

    Oh sweatie. You’re the one trying to undercut a woman’s power and authority because she happened to have acne once upon a time. You’re a waste of space. You have no leg to stand on. Go cry about how your ugly af and your life is worthless, especially compared to Ms. Burke.

    She’s putting herself out there to help sex abuse survivors even though she hears crap like this from asshats like you. You? You just sound like a rapist. And probably are one.

    Tl;dr: Don’t be misogynist if you’re too fragile to take it when someone tells
    you off, snowflake. ???

  • Poison Ivy

    Oh, and I’m gorgeous! Just FYI. ? I see YOU’RE too cowardly to even show your face online. That says all I need to know about you. ?

  • Poison Ivy

    Yep.

  • Poison Ivy

    Says the person who’s too ugly to show their face at all. ?

  • Poison Ivy

    Ahaha, nah, that’s not what people tell me about my looks. At all. I’m hot af, sweatie. And my looks are irrelevant to your pathetic, shallow, rapist bull regardless. Stop being such a misogynist little crapwad. Or just stop being! Either is fine by me. ?

  • Poison Ivy

    Ahaha, nah, that’s not what people tell me about my looks. At all. I’m hot af, sweatie. And my looks are irrelevant to your pathetic, shallow, rapist bull regardless. Stop being such a misogynist little crapwad. Or just stop being! Either is fine by me. ?

  • Poison Ivy

    ??? Oh my god, why are cishet like this? ??????

  • Guess Who

    Yes, it is. You are up here running how your entire physical resume but calling someone shallow. LMAO.....bish, you're ugly and you know it and you're hurt about it. Been teased your entire life for that autopsy you call a face, huh? I know.

  • Poison Ivy

    You’re protecting your own empty, lonely life onto me sooooo hard, it’s both sad and funny. My life is quite fulfilling, actually. Which is why I care about building up sex abuse survivors like Ms. Burke, who are also trying to help others.

    You? You’re just a self-loathing bully. Turn all that hate back inward, where you know very well it belongs. ?

  • Poison Ivy

    So you don’t disagree! Thanks for letting me know I’m absolutely right about you. ???

  • Poison Ivy

    What? ? Yes, all school shooters dress in bright, vibrant colours. And are Canadian. Because that makes any sense. ???

    Ffs, sweatie. I’m 36 and you’re implying I look like a teenager. In what reality is that an insult? ??????

    Oh, and no, my eldest brother is the one who sexually abused me when I was 3. Given that you think child rape is funny, I’m gonna go ahead and assume you’re a pedophile who rapes children. ?

    Gosh. You really are a pathetic excuse for a human being. It’s a shame you were born. Particularly for every child who’s ever had the misfortune to encounter you. ?

  • Guess Who

    Yeah, I figured your family was full of inbred trash. Your fugly arse is getting triggered left and right and it's kinda pathetic. OH well, that is you, ugly man.

    Carry on....

  • Poison Ivy

    My “entire physical resume”? What does that even mean? ???

    No, sweatie. You called me ugly. That’s dactiall incorrect. So I corrected you. Please, do keep throwing a hissy fit about me talking back to your misogynist, pedophilic crap, though, fragile little snowflake. It’s funny af that you can’t take the tiniest speck of what you’re trying to dish out.?

    Again, you’re too ashamed of your face to show it at all. If anyone’s physically ugly here, I think we know who. And clearly you must agree, or you’d prove that you’re better looking than either me or Ms. Burke. ?

    Also, you’re human trash and a pathetic little bully, which is what makes you irreparably ugly. No surgery can fix that! Guess you’ll be ugly forever. Oops. ?

  • Poison Ivy

    Sweatie. I made my profile pic my actual face on Disqus so misogynist asshats would stop derailing actual conversations by trying to call me ugly on another site.

    It worked. They stopped calling me ugly once they saw me. Because people typically think I’m hot. ?

    But please, keep projecting your self-hate onto me, if that’s what you need to get through the day. No skin off my nose! I know I’m gorgeous. ?

  • Poison Ivy

    Ew. Chasers can die in a fire. ? I wouldn’t touch you if you were the last living being on earth. So stop obsessing about my genitals. Never gonna happen. ?

  • Poison Ivy

    Ahaha, hey, if that’s what you need to believe! ? You go ahead and tell yourself whatever you like about me if it helps fill up that giant, gaping hole where your sense of self-worth should be. :P

  • Poison Ivy

    Hey, you’re the one who rapes little kids, bro.

    I’m just a plain ol’ CSA survivor calling you out as the violent pedo you are! ?

  • Poison Ivy

    Sweatie. You’re the one throwing a hissy fit, while I tell you it’s okay to insult me if that’s what you have to do to feel better. If anyone’s “triggered” here, it’s very clearly you. ?

    But once again, keep projecting your issues into me, if that helps you hate yourself a smidgen less! It’s all good. ?

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    That’s why you mad because I said something about that women and you want what she got you are a sicko

  • Guess Who

    Yeah, you're crazy. Your family REALLY did a number on you, huh? Ugly and unloved. I do feel sorry for you, if that helps.

  • Poison Ivy

    Your poor wife. She deserves so much better than you.

  • Poison Ivy

    Dude. Not all trans people are trans WOMEN. Why are YOU so obsessed with trans women’s penises that you keep insisting I must have a penis? Don’t include me in your sick fantasies. I’d kill or die before I’d ever touch you. Now, go die cold and alone, like you know you inevitably will anyway, and stop chasing trans women. I’m sure they want you even less than cis women. ?

  • Poison Ivy

    Wow, be a little more fragile there, rapist. ? Don’t say rapey shit if you don’t want to be called what you are!

  • Poison Ivy

    You need a life.?

  • sunni_daze

    And clearly your cross dressing ass can't read. Or your dude looking ass is a troll either way. DIE HE-BITCH

  • Poison Ivy

    Lol nah, I’m agender and gorgeous! ? Clearly YOU are extremely insecure about YOUR looks though, or you wouldn’t assume everyone else is as fragile and easily hurt by silly insults as you are. ?

    Seriously, just how ugly are you? I’m guessing 19th century freakshow ugly. Show your face, Elephant Man—unless you’re a scared little bitch, that is. Which I’m sure you are. ??

  • Poison Ivy

    If you want me dead, do it yourself, bitch. ???

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    You are sick

  • Mister Fantastic

    You wrote that like you wanna lick on her.

  • Poison Ivy

    Lol no, dude. Queer folks don’t see all women as meat the way you breeders do. I just think all women deserve better than misogynists like you. Glad I could clear that up.

    Please do continue to showcase the depth of your misogyny for all to see! I love when men go out of their way to prove me right. ?
