Burn It Down
{via}

At this point it’s no longer surprising when news breaks on a new Hollywood person that has been accused of sexual misconduct, which is unfortunate in of itself. However, when I heard that the latest was mark schwahn, the creator of one tree hill, it hit me a little harder.

I’m pretty vocal about my love of teen dramas, including OTH. I grew up with it. It's one of those shows that touched an entire generation of people, and it's important to those people. It's a safe place. So to know that it was the opposite of a safe place for the women who worked on the show for so many years, to hear they were abused and talked down to and mistreated, is disheartening. No longer surprising, but it still hurts.

How long will we tolerate this? How many more men will we discover are abusers in the worst way? Abuse of power, abuse of it all. There's probably not even a point to this post other than to express how much I don't understand. The only good thing to come out all of it, maybe, is that there is power in numbers and women feel safer telling their stories. They know they're not alone. & I for one. am incredibly overwhelmed and inspired by the strength of each and every one of them.

You are the reason we fight.
