All it takes is just YOU and YOUR voice!

It doesn't take much to make a change in this world we live in. It starts with you and your voice...I was contacted by Jærbladet today to give my opinion on the song the Bryne boys Grizzly2018 released. The content was beyond disturbing, and even promoting acts that are illegal. It shows that their focus is far from respect towards women, and creates a very unsafe environment for the girls who will be caught in the middle of it. This is exactly why we need to be having better conversations with youth around the topics of the harms of pornography, what consent looks like, how to treat women with respect, and that sex is more than just an aggressive, emotionless act done to a woman and then forgotten about.

(sorry but it is for Norwegian readers only)

I’ve been working on a way to create healthy conversations with adults and youth about the catastrophic impact that the porn culture is having on us. After just watching the Netflix documentary ‘Liberated’ I was deeply angered and repulsed by the acceptance of aggressive and unrelenting force men project onto women. When women say no, they are not even heard. No holds no meaning or affect, in the ears of men it is heard as ‘keep trying until you break her’ 
This attitude for both men and women needs to stop. And a louder voice needs to be heard that we do not have to accept this and we deserve better than this. This is not OK!

Hey Narvesen. Selling porn mags, and displaying them in children's eye-level is not ok!!

If you live in Bryne, you may have noticed that walking past Narvesen in M44 there was a whole shelf of Porn magazines, easily viewable right at children's eye-level.
I contacted M44 and they spoke to the store owner on 2 different occasions to deal with the magazines. He tried to make the magazines a little more hidden, but was apparently helpless to do much more as he was following orders from Narvesen main office about where to display the magazines. So Narvesen actually commands the staff to display porn magazines right at the front of the shelf, in the front of the store at children's eye-level!! THATS NOT OK!!!

It's not cool to have porn magazines anyway, let alone in a position that forces children to be exposed to it.

We are facing a global health crisis when it comes to pornography, and children are seeing porn and becoming addicted to porn at a younger and younger age. We as a society have the social responsibility to protect our children from harm. PORN HARMS! Allowing children to be exposed to porn is so unacceptable. When we remain silent about things that matter, we are actively playing a role in saying that porn is ok. Silence is an action as well. So instead of being silent, speak out and make a complaint, one voice can make a difference!

Narvesen is on Facebook all you have to do is include them in a comment about their magazines by tagging them in like this @Narvesen

It doesn't take much, but the change that can come from this is powerful!

You can just copy/paste what i have said or change it up a bit as well, or of course write your complaint in Norwegian! You can message Narvesen directly through Facebook.

"Hi, i was just wondering why you think it is ok to display your porn magazines in clear view at children's eye-level? This is a deliberate act to expose children to pornography, and you are playing an active part in the harm of children in Norway, I don't have to even go into your store to see the porn magazines, all i have to do is walk past it. I'm so sick of it and i know a lot of other men and women here in Norway that are choosing to not support Narvesen in anyway until you take some social responsibility and remove the porn magazines."

Hey Norway! Porn magazines at children's eye-level are not ok!

So Narvesen thinks it is ok to display graphic full-frontal nudity and explicit porno magazines right in front of the store at the eye-level of children!? NOT COOL!!!

Actions like this fuel the idea that porn-culture is ok! And that it is no big deal if children see porn. Well guess what it is a big deal!

Global research is showing us that boys start seeing porn at the average age of 11, that's not even the youngest, its just the average! 88% of that porn is rape porn, torture porn, bestiality and S&M just to name a few. This is resulting in child on child sexual abuse, porn is turning children into copy cape sexual predators, acting out on others what they are seeing in porn. Adolescent boys are responsible for a 5th of all rapes of women and 1/3 of all rapes of girls. And we can no longer be bystanders in this! We need to act and speak out!!

I wrote an email to the M44 Bryne Narvesen store about the displaying of their porn magazines.
Here is an example of what i wrote feel free to copy paste, or send your own.
We as consumers have the power in our hands to influence what stores produce. So make a change in this city and say no to porn magazines!

Here is Narvesen's email address:


My email:

I would like to make an official complaint about the pornographic magazines you have on display in your store. I am a 28 year old woman and i find it completely offensive that i have to walk past your store and see full frontal nudity and explicit porn magazines right there in the front of the store and to make matters worse they are uncovered and in eyesight level for children to see. 
This is absolutely unacceptable that you have them displayed in clear view like that. 
I would like to be directed to the person who is responsible for deciding on the location in which the magazines are placed in your store. 
I will not be shopping at your store again until these magazines have been removed and i have and will continue to talk about this to people i know and warn them against shopping in your store as well. 
I'm surprised that you ever believed this was ok.

The RebelLion

I am working on an exciting project and am in the process of getting some t-shirts made and starting a movement here in Norway called The RebelLion. I am so inspired by Fight The New Drug (http://fightthenewdrug.org) and the way they brand themselves and the trendy movement they are, and how they use that as a fight against pornography. From what i have heard from Norwegians is that there is no one talking about these topics, well I am talking about these topics and my fiancé is talking about these topics and we both want to start spreading this rebellion against the porn culture and everything that is contributing towards it. So please share this tell your friends, your colleagues, your church pastors and spread word about the rebellion that is happening in Norway.

the fight against narcissism in a world of narcissists

image: Pinterest - Donutlookatme ☪

Social media, mainly instagram has created a platform of self-display which once was deemed socially unacceptable, too embarrassing or extremely inappropriate. These half naked, provocative and somewhat graphic images that we would never dream of willingly exposing to the public are now the norm, they are now the socially acceptable behaviour which retrieves the reward of more likes, more followers and more popularity.

When we are rewarded on the basis of our appearance, we are developing a belief in ourselves that beauty, sexiness, and exposure of our bodies and ‘the perfect photo’ are attributes worth striving for. We begin to believe that these qualities are the most important and interesting things about ourselves. Rewarding and encouraging this behaviour is turning us into narcissistic versions of ourselves.
Obsessing about how to look good for an Instagram photo, taking and re-taking photos, whilst changing poses, hairstyles, outfits, locations, amount of breast or butt exposure, box gap, six pack and lip pout over and over and over again, which means we are spending more and more time in a virtual world that only leaves us more and more disconnected from reality, and discontent with ourselves. Comparison is the thief of joy and instagram feeds off your insecurities and need to compare your life, your body, your diet, and your happiness with everyone else only leaving you feeling more empty than before.

Here is a great article from another young woman's experience as well.  "It’s so healing to trust that I have the right to love my life right now, right where I’m at. Just the way it looks."

why we must fight our fear with all of our heart

Fear can look different to everyone, it can overcome us in ways we hadn't expected, some fear seems irrational, and some completely justified. Whatever it is, fear is a normal part of living and non of us are exempt from it. The difference is, some people just refuse to be ruled by it. They fight against the fear in their hearts, and their minds because they know that when fear gets out of control it can paralyse you, it stops you dead in your tracks, and you miss out on things that could of been.Neuroscientists at Yale University discovered that patients who expected to experience an electric shock had anxiety levels similar to those who responded to the real thing. The mind is an incredible and powerful thing, it can make us believe and physically experience something that hasn't even happened, the battle against fear starts in the mind.

 For some of us we fear not being accepted, not being loved, not looking good enough, fear of loosing our jobs or our security, fear of the unknown, fear of love and commitment, fear of making a change and chasing after your dream, and fear of standing up for what we believe in because others may not agree. Whatever it is, FIGHT with all of your HEART and don't stop fighting against fear, take control of those thoughts in your head and refuse to be ruled by them. Life is too short to look back on it and see all the things that could have been if you had just let go of fear, take courage dear heart and chase after the life you really want for yourself. In the end all that matters is what you did with this one life you have been given, so will it be a life of fear or a life of courage.

who is the real predator?

In Australia there is fear rippling through us as we hear about the shark attacks that keep occurring, just recently Justin Daniels became the 14th shark attack victim in the state this year. Drastic action is being taken to protect humans from these so called "predators" there is even talk of shark culling, killing these animals so they stop killing us. 

But are the sharks the real predators here in Australia? 

In this year alone 62 women have been killed by family violence, three in just the last 2 days. 

Yet there is no action. 

Our Government is turning its back on the women in Australia. "Women's refuges are being closed, as calls to the national crisis assistance line go unanswered due to a lack of funding."

This is a national crisis, it is a scourge on our society and WE MUST ACT! 

A country like Australia should not have a lack of safe places that women can go to in order to protect their own lives, and the lives of their children. 

Get online and support #stopviolence and #stopviolenceagainstwomen 
and find out ways you can spread awareness and support the funding of women's shelters in Australia.
