I mean you don’t even know whether or not your mother is a Survivor.
Do you know that? What about your Sister? Your best friend?
That ex that you believed in but they couldn’t stay right? Promiscuity, low self esteem, depression, substance use can all be side effects of sexual abuse, you know.
Some people are hurting.
What They Told Me
FYI…I hear y’all talking. “We have other things to worry about in the community.”
I’m not new here.
These interviews took place in a major city that was heavily protested in 2015. But a decade prior we were interviewing women who were slowing dying or in a state of existing as a direct result of rape/sexual abuse.
But even when we got there ready to listen, we were late.
“We’ve been there, done that. Trauma, Pain, Abuse & Rape. These are the lessons that we brought back.”
