Janay Rice Inspires #WhyIStayed Stories By Beverly Gooden And Other Abused Women

Posted in: , ,

I've never been in an abusive relationship, and when I saw the video of Janay Rice being punched in the head by her then fiance, I just couldn't imagine why she went on to marry him. Beverly Gooden has been in one, and she knows what could be driving Janay Rice.

Seeing many on social media calling out Janay especially after she released a statement defending her NFL player husband, Beverly decided to change the conversation. She called on her followers to share their stories of domestic abuse with the hashtag #WhyIStayed in an effort to draw awareness to the complexities of domestic violence. She wrote on her website;

For over a year, I was physically abused by my ex-husband. When TMZ released the video of Ray Rice punching, dragging, and spitting on his wife this morning, the internet exploded with questions about her. Why didn't she leave? Why did she marry him? Why did she stay?

I can't speak for Janay Rice, but I can speak for Beverly Gooden. Why did I stay? Check out some of my reasons here. Leaving was a process, not an event. And sometimes it takes awhile to navigate through the process.

I believe in storytelling. I believe in the power of shared experience. I believe that we find strength in community. That is why I created this hashtag. I hope those tweeting using #WhyIStayed find a voice, find love, find compassion, and find hope.

Check out some of the touching tweets below. I'm happy especially with those who add #WhyIleft to show they have put the abuse and abuser behind them.

Please Marry Me! From Desire to Desperation by Kehinde Ajose

Posted in: , ,

THESE days my heart cries when I see individuals who are desperate to get married; who can do anything whatsoever to get that ring on their finger.

A desperate person is someone who feels she has no hope and is ready to do anything to satisfy this burning need. I read the tale of woe of two individuals that will be getting married in a couple of months. I will call them Emeka and Lola (real names withheld). Lola is in her late 30s and her desire to find the right guy has gone from hopefully optimistic to desperation so much that after only three months of knowing Emeka, she’s decided to marry him.

The thing about Emeka is that he is the complete opposite of Lola. She is obsessively neat; but Emeka never learns to clean up himself. She is an independent career woman; he has a chauvinistic streak a mile way. She manages her money well; but he buys based on what he wants rather than what he can afford…and the list goes on. They fight constantly to the point that it is uncomfortable to be around them. With the wedding only two months away, the only thing left to ask is:

“Why would she want to marry a man who is obviously incompatible with her?”

Apple Unveils New iPhone 6, Apple Watch and iPhone 6 Plus - See Best Features

Posted in: , , ,

Apple has revealed the iPhone 6 and the larger iPhone 6 Plus today, Tuesday at an event near its headquarters in Cupertino, California.

Topping the list of new features is a 4.7-inch display, larger than any previous iPhone model. The screen has a resolution of 1,134 x 750, for a pixel density of 289 ppi (pixels per inch). That's technically less sharp than what Apple has called "retina" quality, and not nearly as pixel-dense as some other flagship phones, such as the LG G3 (538 ppi). Apple calls the the new display "Retina HD."

The iPhone 6 features a brand-new physical design, with curved glass sides. The front glass is "ion strengthened," Apple marketing head Phil Schiller said at the unveiling. The design is 6.9 millimeters thin, which compares to 7.6mm for the previous generation, the iPhone 5S.
