I wanted someone whose version of arguing was talking to me and not at me.
Someone who believes in the depth of intimacy being more than just physical. Someone who understood the need to communicate their feelings and the magic of vulnerability.
Someone whose hand I want to hold and can’t because they bring out the shyness in me. I wanted someone who was so different from me and yet somehow still the same. A person who understands that building together is a key element in growing together and growing in love forever. Someone whose fears included failing …

Social media across the world has taken on a more informative role than it did before. What was once considered a fun and light hearted space in 2012, is no longer considered that in 2017. The people who you engage with on any social media platform have found new ways of creating spaces that appeal to them and we see this with the amount of segmentation that takes place on Twitter daily. The irony with this is that, in all the changes that we have witnessed people go through – many have managed to become the best content producers of their segment and age group.

To be a woman, to exist in a world that hates you for just being born a girl. It’s exhausting. I wake up tired every single day wondering if I’ll be dealing with sexual harassment while I’m walking or even if I’ll make it home safely at the end of the day. To be a woman, to live in constant fear and still be expected to be fine with …

I sat in a foreign country in a room alone because the feelings took over. I sat, cried myself silly then walked out with a smile on avoiding people seeing the pain that had dropped down my glowing skin. This was becoming a norm again. The familiarity of still living in the space where hurt was what made life completely unbearable.
It consumed parts of me …

She escaped, but not unscathed;
From a life so severe and cold;
But now, her beautiful smile hides many painful stories untold;
Notice the cracks in her wings,
yet there’s no stalling her flight;
The unhealed bruises on her feet attest to the harshness of past flights;
Though having been pulled and weighed down,

I loved him. I supported him. I let him into my space. I let him into me. He violated me, repeatedly. He taunted me using my naked body and displayed all of me to everyone on the internet. My name is Charlotte Gumbi, and I am a revenge porn survivor. We dated but a few months, and as any woman will tell you: there is nothing …

It’s difficult, having any kind of ‘normal’ life (normal in a context that everyone uses as a descriptor) once you have been diagnosed with a mental illness because you actively have to pay attention to everyone and everything that could possibly trigger you.
Having someone in your life who lives with one or more mental illnesses is not something easy to deal with, our normality changes …

For as long as I can remember, every time submission has been brought up it was in the context of interpersonal and hetereosexual relationships – as a means to define the validity of the relationship and the roles of each person in said relationship. The general consensus is that the woman is to submit to her man, regardless of what her man says and does.
Now, if you’ve followed me for long enough you would have seen the manner in which my growth and change has happened. For a really long time I felt that submission was a …

One does not escape liability simply by pleading ignorance or unawareness of a particular law. This may be viewed as a harsh principle to some, however in terms of justice and fairness to the would-be perpetrator, there is a fair demand of logic to be applied.
Indeed social media can be fun, and may be seen as just as just a joke and/or something of a pass time. So is driving, drinking, sex, etc. these things too are regulated by the law one-way or the other.
Just to put it into perspective, one may not drive without a …
