Got a tonne of stuff whizzing round in my brain and my shoulders are so tense, they’re rock hard. I’ve been spending hours and hours over the last week reading thread after thread on twitter regarding sexual abuse & harassment. Women speaking up against abuse they’ve endured. So much of what I’ve been reading is about abuse, specifically targeted towards black women and it’s just so atrocious to read. I think it’s so admirable of each and every woman who is speaking up. It’s important for me to send love and strength to all the women who don’t feel able to speak up as well. I hate that voices have been silenced for so long, people are so scared to speak up for fear of retaliation. I hate that so many women aren’t believed. I wish that women didn’t have to dig up their traumatic experiences just to make people believe that sexual abuse exists.
Believe women. Believe victims of sexual assault.
