#ThisIsMyJadaPose: A 16 year old girl, Jada, was recently drugged and gang-raped in Houston, after which her abusers took pictures of her unconscious and put them online. Her peers then posted pictures of themselves pretending to be unconscious and used "#jadapose" to make fun of her. Jada has come forward to reclaim her identity, done interviews with MSNBC, and created her own hashtag (#iamjada).

We strive to expand her efforts to include the thousands of survivors like her, whose stories are treated as incidental, rather than symptomatic of the larger issue of our society's inability to talk comprehensively and compassionately about rape and consent.

So far much of the online support for Jada has revolved around how horrible the rapists are. We think that's a given and strive to focus on a more positive, hopeful message about what empowered badasses abuse survivors are. #ThisIsMyJadaPose

In her interview with MSNBC, the word "victim" was used 8 times to describe Jada (never by Jada herself), while Ronan Farrow asked her how it felt to discover she'd been raped. PLEASE help us demand better questions and more respect for Jada and survivors like her.#ThisIsMyJadaPose
