We gotta kill this "Well those girls were fast" narrative. KILL IT #SurvivingRKelly

I don’t think many men understand that they’ve been taught to see sex as coercion rather than consent. That’s why I see #OnHere, so many problematic men failing to understand why R Kelly is trash. #SurvivingRKelly

It should go without saying that Black girls should matter more than good music & a musical gift; that a minor should not be maligned as a manipulator of a man. Let’s teach boys that girls’ bodies are not theirs to molest & misuse. Not theirs to do anything with. #SurvivingRKelly

We do not talk about grooming enough. We just don’t. It’s not cute, it’s not nice, the only reason young girls feel flattered by it is because they are young and immature, the onus is not on them, the onus is on bloody adults to protect them. #SurvivingRKelly

An entire generation glorified that man. Protected him. Made excuses for him. Supported him. From parents, media outlets, teachers, fans etc. Straight trash ?. Don’t ever complain about millennials. #SurvivingRKelly

Now that I’m actually thinking about the lyrics to Bump n Grind, “My mind is telling me no but my body is telling me yes.”
It sounds like we’ve been singing along to a song about child molestation the whole time.

Aaliyah, baby, I’m SO sorry. I’m so sorry that every single adult in your life failed you. Every. Single. One. This is breaking my heart. #SurvivingRKelly

The reasons so many kids don’t speak up & attempt to get out of sexual abuse situations is because they’re taught to be so darn docile & respectable to any and every adult. Leave that teaching in 2018. #SurvivingRKelly

R. Kelly know he bogus as hell. He met Aaliyah at 12 years old and was already lusting over her. Even had her singing about wanting a grown man at the age of 14. That's manipulation at it's finest. #SurvivingRKelly pic.twitter.com/j8UvxqSBeD

#SurvivingRKelly is spilling real tea. R. Kelly worried he impregnated Aaliyah at 15? Then, immediately married her after he and his team forged a marriage license that said she was 18. R. Kelly was 27. Bruh! This is NOT OK. pic.twitter.com/7wdaxFZtl8

I won’t watch #SurvivingRKelly because I’m not mentally able to wrap my mind around the reality. So I’m relying on Twitter and even still, it’s a lot.
Please stop blaming children for being fed to hyenas. Predators being supplied with prey. Period.

1. R Kelly is a paedophile
2. Paedophilia is a crime
3. The victims parents/guardians are accomplices to a crime (Paedophilia)
4. They should all be in jail. Case closed. #SurvivingRKelly

”There are no big paychecks for these women. We can't pay them to be in a documentary. There are no endorsement deals. This kind of exposure doesn't lead to some great something. I admire them so much and have all the respect in the world for them,” @dreamhampton #SurvivingRKelly
