This is a picture I took at the #Venice canals yesterday while hanging out with @hernia. He thought it was a stupid photo but that’s because it’s an embodiment of us as flowers and it hurts his tender heart with #beauty and #friendship. #nofilter

Will Sean Podcast

I did the Will Sean Podcast podcast last week, where we talked about ‪#‎YesAllWomen‬, the OJ trial being one of my first introductions to race in America (I moved here in 1994), and The Leftovers, among other things. I don’t know anything about The Leftovers but I did find out I was still surprisingly mad about Lost, sorry Damon Lindelof, I said some harsh things, I hope your money bed is still soft after this.

Check it out here.

This is my story.

I only knew that Char was wonderful and funny from Twitter, but her story and her bravery in sharing it also points to one of the strongest and wisest people I’ve ever had the privilege of internet-knowing. Thank you for sharing, you are amazing. Anytime another survivor shares her story, I feel stronger, and I know other women do too. I have been talking to women about this all weekend, it has been so strange and cathartic. I talked to a composer at a barbecue who told that every year at an event that honors composers there is, at most, one woman on stage out of about a hundred people. I talked to a woman about being choked by a boyfriend, and to another comedian about how we stay safe in unsafe-feeling places after/before/during our shows. We cannot seem to stop talking even though sometimes we want to.

#YesAllWomen and the stories the hashtag has caused to surface are an incredibly powerful experience and the only time I have felt like this in my entire life. Proud, moved, sad, angry, annoyed, inspired, and most importantly, not alone.

My name is Charlene deGuzman and I am a former sex worker.

I taught myself at a very young age that I must sexualize myself in order to be loved. I couldn’t help it - my father had centerfolds of naked women collaged on the walls of our garage and in every room of the house. (They were…
