Even Broadway chanteuse Randi Zuckerberg isn’t safe from the tyranny of the masculine:
Good for Yellow Teefs for calling this creep out. Seriously.
Look for Donkey to repost and give a shout out to “my girl Randi” in 3 2 1.
In other news, Jess Johnson, Donkey’s current BFF, would like to thank the masculine members of The Academy:
This is a public service announcement to honor ALL the men who are showing the F up in SUCH beautiful ways, and specifically those who have been holding my heart, honoring my mind, nourishing my body and tickling my soul <3
Today I experienced a spontaneous (emotional) combustion in my car.
I have been STEEPING in the energy of the wounded feminine through this BODY performance with Isabella Konold, Debbie Lichter and Adelle Juliet. We dive deep into the impact of the original “splitting” of self from Self (body and soul) in the female psyche…and it has been a really intense experience.
Riding on the tail of Wild Vessel LA and the #MeToo movement, I feel like ALL of my posts have been about healing wounds and feminine rising and in this moment I want to acknowledge what IS working and the men out there who are carrying the torch of healing through the way they show up in their personal relationships.
I don’t care if I piss off every women’s empowerment coach in my friend list by using this word ***** I believe that we NEED each other!
Bless David Deida, but when men ask me “What can we do?” I really feel like the biggest thing is just to look for ways to love, support, honor, listen to, uplift and acknowledge the women in your life!
(You can also massage us and feed us strawberries).
I have been blessed to have really amazing relationships with men, and I have a TEAM powerful brothers, who have been there for me and continue to show up in the most diverse and fortifying ways and they are actually who inspired this post, and I want to thank some of you now. I don’t know if you realize how much you do for me, even when we’re far away.

Chad Mureta: You are my favorite playmate. Thank you for effortlessly making me laugh more than anyone I know
Raj Lahoti: You are not on FaceBook anymore 😉 You have changed my life. You have completely transformed the way I see and feel about money. You have infused me with the spirit of generosity. You have empowered me to not just to thrive as an artist but to serve as a patron. You are eternal family.
Angus Wilson: You put musical wings to my words, my sacred prayers, my heart calls, my rally cries. You’re encouragement in times where i doubt myself and your excitement when I don’t give me strength and dedication to keep walking this path, even when it is confronting. I can’t wait to see and hear what lies ahead 🎵
Eli Call and Micha Mikailian: You hold me with so much love and respect. The way you see me helps me see myself. You invest in me in this way.
Jay Brown: You champion me. You tune into me in a way that has me feel tended to and like the things I say and do matter. You are the KING of loving, authentic, moral support #YesQueen!

Warwick Saint: Witnessing you hold the woman whose heart and home we shared was a gift. It up-leveled what I thought was possible. It lit a candle in my heart for the type of love and partnership I want and I am SO grateful for your welcoming of me into your most beautiful heart.
Matthew Monahan and Brian Monahan: You’ve helped extend my feeling of family to far reaching corners of the planet. That has changed me, and made me feel more connected and committed to the global family at large.
Is Ove: Medicine Brother. I feel your Spirit with me always. I don’t know how you do it but you feel like a guardian and I am in awe of your mag

And lastly, Robert Deutsch and Richard Johnson: My two dads. I am well aware of how important a woman’s relationship is with her father to allow for EVERYTHING
I mentioned up above. Your full championship of me expressing myself being who I really am, not having to play by societal rules, encouraging me to pursue my passions and dreams is SUCH a pivotal part of who I am today that it would take years of messages like this to have you fully comprehend, but I hope reading the above messages to all these amazing men in my life has you feel proud to have raised a daughter in a crazy world who is FAR from perfect but who has known love so fully.
And to the MANY more brothers who I didn’t mention who move me, touch me, stand for me and with me, and who do the same for my sisters, I HONOR, WITNESS, LOVE and RESPECT you and pray that you know that THAT IS LEADERSHIP!!!!
Other men watching you will see the power of the intimacy and joy you carry with you and the radiant women you attract and they will follow you until they can rise to stand beside you.
***Please don’t take offense if you are a brother of mine who didn’t get tagged! This is not a complete list (I didn’t even tag my biological brothers) and it doesn’t mean I don’t love you, recognize you and appreciate you SO SO SO much. This was a stream of consciousness that I needed to put through while it was flowing. If you are even wondering it means you are on the team.
Thank goodness “Paris Truther” Elijah Ray and pimp daddy Destin Gerek made the list. But no Rain? No Ryan Allis? Isn’t The Caterwauler a member of his harem? Jaahass, we do take offense!
