Scoop: Kids' border surge expected to last 7+ months
"I Heart radio. You're listening to the daily dive on use radio. Tell you f L, A welcome back to the Daily Dive Weekend edition. Finally, for this week, the surge of migrants of the border continues as expected to possibly less seven months as projections for September by Customs and border protection is anywhere from 22,000 to 25,000 migrants crossing the border. The administration is trying to get control over the situation. But the message is not reaching migrants and smugglers. Reuters recently spoke to over a dozen self identified smugglers to see how and why unaccompanied minors are crossing the border. In many cases, these smuggling operations can cost thousands for the migrants as they're transported by a variety of ways, even by plane. For more on how these smugglers air getting it done will speak to Laura got Steiner, Reuters correspondent based in Mexico, But some of the migration that we're seeing in context I mean, for a number of years Now we've been seeing an increasing number of families and Children coming from Central America. This is something that we saw under the Obama administration to the Trump administration and now under the five in administration. As you mentioned as well. Migration trends tend to be seasonal. So migration tends to pick up in January and February and then go through until you start to get the sub warmer summer months, And then it becomes more dangerous. So you know, it is definitely the case that there are more Migrants, particularly families and unaccompanied Children traveling to the U. S border than we've seen in previous months at the same time, you know, we saw a huge increase in the number of families and unaccompanied minors as well coming in 2019. So this is something that Really spans a number of different U. S administrations from both parties we wanted to speak is as you mentioned two smugglers to understand the trends of how these Children are getting to the U. S. Border. Because it certainly striking. Of course, as you hear stories of unaccompanied Children, Children without their parents or their legal guardians, including some very young Children arriving to the borders we wanted to understand, you know. How are they traveling? Who were they traveling with? How much does it cost for them to be traveling? And where are their parents? Because I think there's often this sense that the parents are all in Central
Weike Wang Reads Lara Vapnyar
"Heike haidara how you doing all right. Thanks for joining us. So when we talked about doing the podcast laura vapin. Er was your first thought. Why was that. I thought neon sign went off of my head. I've read the store many times but this was one of the first stories that you know From the magazine that i read and then it stuck with me for a really long time and since then i've read her older stories in the magazine but also all of her collections. Her novels i think her most recent one about her mother Right divide by. Sarah is a great example of being introduced to a very small piece of a writer's work and then wanting to read everything about what she's written and seeing what kind of terrain she covers them. So she's one of those writers that i'm always recommending to everyone. What was it when about this story when you read it. That made such an impression. I think she does a great job of being very laser focused on an experience from childhood. That has an impact in in adulthood for this protagonist and Her friend while also taking on something as large as may be the immigrant experience but having that happened mostly off stage and i found that incredible that the first half is mostly set. You know in a foreign country with Girls who are just like girls in any country and somehow we end up in a different place by the end of the story. I'm just amazed at how much time and also territory was covered with very very specific characters and just dolls and you also right Fairly often about the life of immigrants in the us and roy The story is about. Russian emigrants not immigrants from china but Do you feel that. There's overlap in your interests right. I did feel a certain kinship about that experience very familiar train. It was eerie. When i read it because i understood so much about the interior of the protagonist in that relationship but also just the backdrop of what was happening and class class within immigrants class in your native country in your new country. I found that was done expertly but very very very subtly.

Samantha Yap - YAP Global - Blockchain PR
"You started in two thousand. Seventeen with an icu. Boom and. I'm sure that the media's all over that at the now Especially with this latest bull run I'm sure that the everyone wants to hear about it. Know about it. Your stories us as a very exciting time. But i feel like with a two thousand seventeen. Ico boom it was a lot of excitement. And then everyone was interested was on the front page mainstream media then like the bubble burst and all the mainstream all right this is just a fad and they forgot about it and then now we're seeing with this latest bull. Run this excitement again so on one is there any hesitancy on the on the part of the mainstream media their little. Wary that okay. Is this just another bubble. Are they kind of scared to lean into it of a skeptical or are they excited about it like like we are. I am so that there was talk last week. Sorry i'm not sure his co. out but there was talk of how it's not as knowing it's not as noisy and bitcoin eighteen k and even just as we speak right now. Nineteen a It's been quieter like quieter than than before Perhaps the all time high had Had already been nineteen case. It's not like new news so probably a waiting until like we're all waiting until it hits twenty k. And then anything else. The twenty k. Will be like the old time high right. Because that's we're at the way media works in you know. In general journalism is like image not new. It's like just you know it's it's not like a gonna make headlines yet I think this time round. I think from from the lot like from two thousand seventeen in early twenty eighteen it's the regulators that kind of Yeah they were kind of clamping down on ice ios. The in the us sc was like kind of clamping down on on on activity in this space. And i think that that added contributed to the negative stigma. That ice us in crypto had But i think like the company's the innovation in this space like the fact that they're still companies being built with the technology on the technology Shows that like it's a real industry is not just a bubble like it's that they're they're still companies that are building today So i think this time around. It's more of like. I think when we hit twenty k. That's when people will start paying more attention and Yeah i end this time round. It's because within the industry. We kind of know what this means but to the outsiders still they're kind of yet has hit twenty k. As i think they just let's hope let's hope that they don't realize a little longer so i could afford to buy bitcoin event. Let everyone on the party. But it's kinda crazy because you know like you mentioned to. Someone was teaching you all about it and i know when i first got into the industry. It's a lot to learn. And i wonder you know as someone who's trying to pr for a specific project company. I it has to know what laura blockchain and then they have to know what. Bitcoin is and then because before even trying to sell your product. Your product is predicated on the success and instability of this underlining new technology new concert new currency so when you're actually do pr for for a project. Or how important is it to know tied in attach. Bitcoin to in or any crypto. Like how hard is it to explain the technology or know you. Just tell cool story how this is going to make it like that. Yeah that's a really good question. And i think the knowledge gap because the nausea is wives with like newcomers encrypted but the knowledge gap is getting wider. The industry gets so like bitcoin is what like twelve years old now and i think yeah like going. It's very important to enter. The space right. Now is still early to still understand the basic so to actually still go back and read the bitcoin white paper any new a team member. That joins my team. I make them read the bitcoin whitepaper. There's also this other university called the university of recosia maybe University has a program to but they had this like introduction to digital currencies. Course like. I always encourage my team to do that too. I think it's very important when you're communicating What your company does like. Especially even this year with defy exploding. There's a whole other level of complexity to even talk about decentralization. You need to go back to the basics But then there's the other argument where like soon. We want these applications to be easy like these web three point applications to be as easy as web two ones but at and just like how. Today we don't need to know what goes on behind google and internet like we don't need to know the basics. I think with crypto. They're still Like fundamental points like the fact that it is decentralized the fact that when you own your on a cold storage while like what that means how you store that like there is more responsibility for the holder of cryptocurrency. 'cause it's not like you know it's not like he can like i know this coin base where you know they have your password and everything off my possible but you know people still need to know that if you have like a cold storage wallet your or bitcoin it and you forget your password or you. Forget your pin. There is no bank. there is no one that can help retrieve that for you. Like new are responsible for that. I think we need to still remind people that like. That's how you interact with crypto today.

It has because I've told him to stick it a few times during the process not to combat the we argue all the time we argue like brother and sister and so she we'd get in a fight and she said I'm not doing your effing book you can shove it up your so. Then we wouldn't talk for a while and and so you know doing your IRA collaborating with your wife To Ex wife rather to do a book is an interesting process But but we Has Been Social Media came? We would share store. We put out a Christmas card every year together. We started doing that about four years ago. as our modern family and everybody everybody okay. I like that. That's my thanksgiving. Looks like everything's bigger house and the advent of social media's we put it out there not to show off in but just this is our life. This is how it looks. This is what our family looks like to us right at the beginning like the first one that went out people were like. Excuse me. What is this like some freaky? Yeah jazz like everybody just has to get on board. Let me ask you a question Nikki. So your family so high profile on me. Can you say who they are? My father used on the forty niners. Right they're pretty well known family and they're also really conservative are traditionalist conservative. So how did they react to that Christmas card good question? I think that all took a little like it took a little getting used to because I think people even like you know your mom and dad were sort of like what is this like. Why why. Why are they still coming over for Thanksgiving? And why are you trying to have Christmas? Like why are you like what is this? Like if you didn't work meant to be married. Why are you still together? But they've all sort of I mean. I actually think my parents really liked this guy. So like they're they're happy because they see the way Asher is flourishing having this kind of relationship. Yeah and beginning. It's we're way more than they like. Either one. There was a little new to to everybody. So that's how you know on social media. People say like you guys have such a great story you have. You know you need to get this out there and like I talked about my recovery. I've made the biggest changes in my life through relatedness and the power relatedness. And you know I. I went to many people with a lot initials behind their name. That told me I had trouble with drugs and alcohol but it wasn't until I spoke with another alcoholic or another addict who I knew had been to hell Was I willing to take a look at it? So this is just our story right and and everybody. I'm sure who gone through. The divorce can relate to some of those feelings. Some of that stuff going through. So it's just how we did it you know it's just our story People do differently as you know. Laura I mean there's this is just our way of doing it and the net result is a happy divorce and I think that's important for people to keep in mind. Which is this is their story. You have your own story. Take pieces from this story. Use It if it works for you. If it doesn't don't use those pieces take other pieces but I do. I think that creating what our families are going to look lake and again we talk about this all the time on this podcast. Having a tribe having a support group it takes a village that whole idea and most importantly more people love my kid. It must be nice to know that. Nadia's there somewhere else. Because he's got another person that loves him. What the Hell could possibly be wrong with that. Nothing how my ego over it? I'm like you know what this is. A great thing that the most The moment where I sort of knew for me that this thing was working was Chat asked me to coffee one day And we went to coffee actually the same coffee shop at sort of made a man's and now that but we had worked out our whole divorce at that coffee shop and then gave it to the lawyer said. Draw this up. We've come to this conclusion after six or seven meetings but anyway he asked me to coffee and he said you know first of all. He made amends for any illusion that he was moved in or had any. You know wh why were married at any sort of you know feelings towards Nicki in just sort of happened but then he said I want to ask her to marry me. I want you permission. And he said why do I say I said? Are you sure because I can tell you some.

"The stream of commerce a dangerous product and so rather to my office and we amended the plane and we made this into a product liability case and it was a rather novel approach and the judge told us we were full of Shit and dismissed the entire case and we appeal to the second circuit and they told us we were also full of Shit we ultimately petitioned to the Supreme Court the US because this was a pretty novel case and for the Court to dismiss it. I mean we're getting. I don't WanNa get too far into the weeds. But the Supreme Court has never ruled on this particular law which basically is what protects Oliver Tech companies. And it's why they've all grown into these behemoths that they have because we individuals don't have the right to hold them liable and therefore they don't have any of the market forces on them to have developed like safe products that actually take care of their users but the Supreme Court ultimately two weeks ago told us that they weren't going to be reviewing the case and so we're now in a deadlock where the issues now coming up in Congress and were testifying there but grinder case. Let okay. I like the I like the grinder. I like that you're doing this. Let's back up a little bit because I want to talk for a moment about your book. I know we talked about your situation. And it's not hard for me to believe but I don't know that the listeners will really understand beyond you and Matthew. How unbelievably common. This is to happen to people in terms of anybody who's online for any period of time or anything. Tell us about why you decided to write the book and a little bit. What it's about because it's in this day and age when people are so nuts like I mean I couldn't help to myself. Well what did you dated this guy for six weeks? What did you do that? Set off such a reaction in the psycho or would that have happened to anybody that he dated because he is just so mentally ill. Yeah it definitely wasn't because I was so amazing it was because it's a character trait that we see over and over and over again. Which is Laura exactly why I wrote my book because you know at this point. We've seen hundreds of different victims of predators and all our clients the two things that our clients have in common is that they either are currently under attack or they've been tapped and there's almost always a component of of violence or sexual violence or gender gender based violence in these cases and but we realized my office that we were seeing the same patterns over and over and over again as if there was a playbook and so part of the reason I wanted to write the book was to taxonomy is the kinds of offenders that we kept seeing and we ultimately categorize them into four different groups Psychos assholes purves and trolls and the book has it takes you know some of our our cases to show tell the story of the quintessential cases in in this categories but also wanna be able to demystify for people what these types of attacks look like so that if they or their friend is ever on the wrong side of one of these assholes that you know that they'll know what to expect they'll be able to see the patterns because if you're being stalked or harassed it's like you're always waiting for the next shoe to drop in. It's a constant state of anxiety. We don't you. Don't make a lot of these. People are very creative. You know I've had clients who you know. They're impersonated and their their ex-boyfriends sends bomb threats to Jewish community centers. All over the place or impersonates them and sense child pornography and their names or or somehow hacks into the the dog walking up. Where they're you know making part-time money and tells one of their clients that they just killed the cat. You know there's like horrible. These are all all. I'll say stream of obsessive nece. Yeah often I mean one of the other things that I think people naturally think my dad when I was growing up basically had two pieces of advice that he hammered into me for my entire childhood life. One was. Don't pack if you can't carry it meaning like don't I'm not carrying your luggage free and the other more importantly don't let anyone take naked pictures of you know naked pictures so even in my longest term six year relationship. No naked pictures. But even if I'm sitting here thinking this when you're talking about revenge porn they'll just take a picture a naked picture of someone else and say it's you. I mean there's no right around this kind of a sick fuck mind correct. Yeah and it's not enough to say don't take naked pictures because I mean there's nothing at this industry at age where our phones are not just within arm's reach but like usually in our hands. It's like that's not really like it's not perverse behavior to express yourself that way but the thing is that even if you've not like I have clients whose yes who as you said are like their heads photo shopped onto a porn stars. Right body or deep. Fakes is now a thing where people are using machine learning and artificial intelligence to get a computer to learn your face that it can even more persuasively look like that porn Israel right and we've also had Really Sachs's where clients were photo without their consent or knowledge as well as sexually assaulted and photographed or videoed without their consent knowledge and those went viral. So the problem is more widespread than than just the the act of taking taking the picture right. You said you were going to break it down and demystify it so I want the folks listening to really kind of because you are without question the expert on this and it's I think for better or worse something that you don't think about until it's happening to you so yeah so I. WanNa tell you about the four categories of offenders that we see over and over again at my firm PSYCHOS assholes purves controls so starting with the psycho that is the the situation where an offender usually. It's an axe has just given up everything in their life to destroy their targets and usually these people don't have jobs they don't have meaningful relationships with family members. They don't really have anything. That's anchoring them to society and so they don't necessarily feel like they have anything to lose. They're not worried about breaking the law. They're so far gone and ill with their obsession and their need to kind of balance the scales in punish the victim for whatever they've done which usually is just breaking up with them that they just become hellbent and obsessive with destroying the other person's life and so- examples about or like what I described with with Matthews case where his offender after their relationship ended was just like okay. Well you've left me now. I've now got nothing and I'm going to just spend hours day creating these fake profiles grinder and sending people to your home to hopefully rape you and that takes dedication it takes focus. It takes two nasty commitment. These are key takes commitment and this was over a six month period of time and he knew it was illegal. He had restraining orders against him. And it just didn't matter and so these are. The cycler was somebody who just has lost all perspective. And how's that different from an asshole so the ASSHOLE is perspective? They have their on the back right. They have some perspective and they're not going to. They're not. They're just on the other end of the spectrum. There are more moderate. So they'll do something they'll do a horrible act of revenge porn or sometimes in some of our cases we have schools that are assholes. Were they get a report? That one of our clients was sexually assaulted. And they behave unethically and and you know accuse. Kline of of consensually having sex at school something like that right. These are the title nine violations. These are like giant so so sometimes Ed ministrations are assholes. Basically it's when there's an act does Kinda singular okay and about act that singular asshole and then purves are purves clearly right purves. Yup Herbs or purse purves are They're the ones who are doing sex store Shen usually. There's there's some sort of offline sexual motivation gratification power imbalance. They are the Harvey Weinstein's the sex predators. We have a lot of cases that do involve computers where offenders will impersonate a kid and then seduce a kid maybe like playing online games or in a chat room and the trust of of the of the target over a period of time and then ultimately get them to share a naked image right and and then blackmailed them with the image in. Your appliance in these cases are sometimes like thirteen fourteen. Fifteen years old as are being blackmailed by an adult who basically uses the threat of distributing the single image to coerce them into sharing more and more and more images and they get progressively more graphic. The demands are raised. And that's different from a troll. How it's much sicker than are typical. Troll that's sex torsion. It's it's such an incredibly gruesome situation where you're making a kid become like a sex life so moving over to troll that somebody who's usually also acting anonymously usually through the Internet and sometimes in moths so usually it's more of a public platform bike ride on twitter. Where suddenly there's just a mob of people going after somebody usually for ideological reasons. You've said something that the far-right hates you said something about trump you've saved my capital Griffin Buddy head with the head you know. She then was the target of of all trolls. They were docking her. They were you know threatening her. All Non Asli and the issue with trolls is that because they're anonymous and because they're they act in an moths. It's really really difficult to get any action against them. Because you can't really go to law enforcers and say. Hey there thousand anonymous people that are threatening to behead me and say they know where I live you know. Can you get the social media channels though to do anything? Well that's exactly what the best solution is because law enforcement is GonNa be like listen. We don't want to be investigating people that might be on the other side of the world and even if we get you know criminal charges against one person who's threatening to kill you. What about the other ninety nine hundred ninety nine so really platforms are the best place and the only place really to get action but again as we talked about with the case there's absolutely no liability if the platforms. Don't help. You're going to change that. I have a feeling you're going to change that. I hope so. At least at least there needs to be injunctive relief where people should be able to say listen. These people are destroying my life. They're sending naked pictures threatening by my kids my family and they're showing up at my doorstep at the very least. I need you to say that they can't use your your right to do this because these platforms are monetize every single user with. What's one of the great things about your book is that it really is like Laura always says knowledge is power? You're arming people with knowledge. So that they know what they can do to avoid the situation and bringing something that I think like. I said as with divorce until happening to you. You probably don't think about it very often and what I loved about what you said earlier Carey. Is You became the lawyer that you needed when this happened to you. And that's awesome. It really is and I. Do you change the way people approach this. I know things are going on in Congress right now. I we wish you the best of luck in getting this done and tell our listeners.

"I also read the seven husbands. Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins read. Taylor wrote Daisy Jones in the six which I loved and everybody's reading this summer but the seven it has been of Evelyn. Hugo had to do it this woman who has been through all of these different relationships in her life and she was a Hollywood actor back in the fifties and sixties and I just it was delicious. Three women by Lisa Taddeo is getting a lot of buzz. They call it a literary masterpiece and it was is definitely provocative. I'm not sure I can tell you that I loved it but it was very interesting reading about these. Three women's different experiences having to do with their sexuality their relationships et Cetera. And how we as a culture view women really really good tie in for the book that we're going to talk about next and the most fun we ever had by Claire Lombardo. No this is a family has been wife with four children all girls and how they kind of deal with the relationship of each other the couple that are married and therefore kids and there was a review by Rebecca MCI author of the Great Relievers which is another book I loved where she says. Everything about this brilliant debut cut cut too deep the humor the wisdom the pathos clear Lombardo rights like. She's been doing it for one. Hundred Years Actually been alive for one thousand really is it really was a neat read. Didn't like and I. I read voraciously during the summer. I loved all of these and without further ado I want to introduce you to someone who wrote a book that I was super are interested in absolutely loved. My guess. Is Leslie Morgan Steiner. And she wrote this book called the Naked Truth and she refers to it often in some of our interviews resist. TNT which I thought was great in addition to her work as an author. She's also a consultant and a thought leader on Women's leadership work life balance inspirational parenting overcoming overcoming adversity and surviving violence against women. She lives in DC. So she's skyping in with us today to tell her about her latest memoir the Naked Truth which explores femininity an entity aging and sexuality over fifty. Yes that exists shelter at the New York Times Bestseller bestselling memoir crazy. Love the theology. Mommy wars there's an exploration in infertility titled the Baby Chase and to Ted talks. Welcome to divorce. Sucks Leslie Morgan Steiner. Thank you so much. It's a great pleasure to be here being being fifty one years old and being happily one of the one third who has had sex in the last year and just dealing with so many men and women and that go through you know a twenty year plus marriage like you did and then kind of come out on the other side of speed dating online line dating all this stuff. I think it's really really an important thing that this book exists so tell tell our listeners. A little bit about and why you decided to do this. Well you know the the the of motherhood and marriage kind of causes a lot of women to lose themselves yourselves and perhaps some men to in the whole experience and I found myself divorced at forty nine and feeling just lost lost unattractive de sexualize not valued and I realized I'd lost myself in a along with the marriage and I knew I couldn't find myself Elf on a diet of self help and Yoga and I I realized and I I just realized this to myself I couldn't write about it or tell anybody. I realized that the answer was than men that I needed and I needed a lot of them. So I came up with this crazy idea that I was going to date while date in air quotes because I know what that meant right five men for a year and I did and it was fantastic. One of the smartest best most wonder things I've ever done in my life and then of course the writer I decided to write about it. And I I didn't WanNa do sort of a nonfiction research book or interview a lot of other women. I thought the most powerful thing would be just has to tell the story of how I got to such a low place and how I called out to the universe of men to help me find myself again I love love it and I love. There was somewhere that I read that you kind of decided to do. What so many men do when they hit you know middle aged midlife crisis Batas a sports car started dressing younger and really just started approaching people that you've found attractive which we as women? No men do all the time because we're the beneficiaries of that like you really gross or. Oh Hey that makes me feel good so you started doing it. How was that kind of jumping off point because clearly have being the mother of two teenagers and being in a relationship for twenty years? That was those that was not your Mo previously. I had no idea what I was doing. You know. I didn't know. Oh how to approach man. I didn't know that it's really important. When you see somebody? You like to get their name. You know that you can never track somebody down without a name so I was very clumsy easy at first but I just persevered and I also have an aside. I hate online dating so I couldn't do that and I didn't do any of it and I started. I started to see that they were wonderful men everywhere. I went and the airport on the Sidewalk and the gym the supermarket and I just started kind of very casually chatting up men who I found attractive and it worked I was rejected a lot and I failed a lot but it worked enough that I was able to cobble together. Five men and actually a lot more than five and men at times zero. Because it doesn't you can't just really like with up five all of a sudden right and the thing that shocked me. The most that I was that I did it but then that shocked me. The second most was that every man man I ended up connecting with was younger and some of them were twenty years younger and they and that also is typical male ammo and I realized why it worked worked. You know the the these younger men. They didn't make me feel old. They made me feel and they didn't make me feel young either. They made me feel like exactly my age and really valued for being an older wiser woman who had a lot of sexual experience and it really made my head spin so much that I knew I had to write the naked the truth about it and kind of share it question and again you say you said just now that you didn't like online dating and I know that so many of our members of our community. That's kind of I go to. Why didn't you? I think I know the answer but I wanna hear you say it. Why don't you like it? Well online dating is especially tough on on older women. And you know. The study. showed that men's desirability peaks online at age fifty and women's at eighteen so there's a lot of rejection older woman dating online. I didn't WanNa do that right now. So I don't find it. Romantic or appealing or sexy. I think it's a great marketplace. I'm glad that exist. It just wasn't for me and also I. I'm a pretty friendly person so I found it very easy to just smile at men who I found attractive and take it from there and I have to tell you you walk down the street smiling and they're gonNA notice it doesn't matter if you're overweight or are underway to just if you got that Mojo and you're smiling men love it so one of the things that you also. I mean you'd really you you're quite Franken your book about what goes on and it's very detailed and personal dive into all of these things particularly intimacy. Do you think that. Have you been accused of over sharing and and do you care. Well I think over sharing is just a euphemism for telling the truth And I think that anybody who says I'm over over sharing. I think they're kind of trying to shame MI Our Society is not comfortable with women talking frankly about sex especially an older woman. I mean we're supposed to go. Oh and hide. It'd be invisible and no one wants to be invisible. I certainly didn't so I put the the shame back on people who say that about me that they don't WanNa do this. They don't WanNa talk about it but I think it was really important to to absolutely tell the truth memoirs about telling. The truth is what crazy love was about out as well and so. I'm here telling the truth so on that note. What are your kids your teenagers? I've got one. How do they feel about it? The book there is not a kid on this planet that wants their mother to write a book about her sexual so and by the way if there is we don't WanNa know that exactly very good point there. My kids did not like it. They don't like it and they've been really candid with me about that and to me. That's validation that I raised them right. They're very open about their feelings. And I also feel like a lot of kids never really know who their mom is Because our culture says that we have to be like you know the sweet loving kind of perfect little mom and grandma one day and I feel like I've given my kids a priceless gift by sharing with them who I really am most kids. Don't I know who their mom really is and mine do. That's great. I like that. So how do we reconcile the fact that we because I too who I'm over fifty and people like Helen Mirren Dr Ruth and J. Lo and Halle Berry and Gloria Steinem all are these vibrant over fifty fifty women that will embrace their their their physicality in their sexuality and yet some of those same women are the women that really will call themselves. Feminists and say don't cat call me on the street. Don't sexually harass me. Don't make the first overture. Is this a confusing Dynamic for those of us that truly believe that there should be more than one third of women over fifty. You've had sex in the last year yet at the same time we're all going weaken. The casting couch can no longer exist. Don't don't touch me if I don't want to be touched to Cetera. I think it's confusing. But there's no contradiction because the real message is my body my rules. I get to say who can call me. I get to say with our like our not right. I'm I get to say. Hey who I have sex with and win and that could be zero people. It could be five hundred people but it's my choice and I think that's the real message of me too and I think thank me you the women that you named.
