On January 30, former “America’s Next Top Model” contestant Bello Sanchez says he was sexually assaulted by a man in a bathroom stall inside of Le Rouge nightclub in Paris. But when he went to authorities to report the matter, the LA native says ” They were of no help.”
Specifically, Sanchez claims cops administered an incomplete rape kit and did little to find the man who assaulted him. In a video to TMZ he explained he wants cops to finally “Look for that person.”
“Paris is so easy to find someone,” he said. “All the buildings are the same color, there’s not really a lot of places you can hide at. Why did they not look around in that moment as soon as they came when I told them? Why didn’t they do that? Why didn’t they ask questions to the security guards? They were of no help.”
Sanchez says it wasn’t until an advocacy group stepped in on his behalf 72 hours after the assault that he was given a proper rape kit. And he believes his race and sexuality have everything to do with how he was treated.
“Respect & Celebrate Everything That Got Yo A$$ Here.” Janelle Monae Wants To Normalize Menstruation
Y’all know March is the month designated for celebrating the glory and splendor of women. And in doing so, artist and actress Janelle Monae decided to honor women’s strength and ability to create life with a tweet that took a more biological approach to the subject.
I can see where both women are coming from. Bodily fluids are generally gross, let’s just be honest. But the conversation around periods and menstruation needs to change. As a culture, we don’t whisper about having to urinate. And while I’m sure no one wants to play in urine, it’s normalized. How many fart or poop jokes do we encounter in entertainment every single year? It’s normalized. Hell, we can even laugh about the way men streak their draws. (Talk about uncleanliness!) But any mention of menstrual blood and people’s lips immediately curl in disgust.
