‘Get a lock on the bedroom door’: how to have a sex life when you've got children
Kyle Grillot for Buzzfeed News. This is Part 2 of a BuzzFeed News series. He was watching the scene live on the television news on the morning of January 7, How strange , thought Majors; only recently he had been discussing the first case with his dear friend of 20 years, Timothy Dean. It was a friend up in San Francisco. Majors tries to convey the enormity of the loss: the old friend who had long been there for him; the big personality who worked for Saks Fifth Avenue and always wanted to make things just so.

As a feminist activist, I celebrated the public shaming of these men. As a black woman who has survived sexual violence, I quietly applauded the new narrative on rape and race in America that I saw unfolding. In the first weeks of MeToo, the celebrities accused of sexual assault were white men, not African-American men. Finally, media representation had caught up to reality. According to the most recent data released by the Justice Department in a special report on female victims of violence, white men committed more than 57 percent of sexual assaults from to in the United States. This myth, born in the 19th century, worked to prohibit consensual sexual liaisons between white women and black men on one hand, and was used to justify the widespread lynching of black men on the other hand, by white mobs who falsely asserted their black male victims raped white women. As that stereotype took hold, it destroyed the lives of black men and their families, and it had another chilling effect: It discouraged all women from coming forward with allegations against white men.

It was as if, in the rulebook of how to end a relationship, she had torn out the last chapter. Disagreements, rows, eating meals in silence, sleeping in separate rooms: these things were all missing from our end sequence. So, at 52, I found myself unexpectedly single. As well as the pain of the breakup, I was also scared about single life.
