Two days ago when so many people stood up and said “Me, too” on Facebook, I was one of them. And then 2 hours later I took that post down. The reason I took it down is because on some level I still feel some shame or some confusion regarding some of the things that have happened to me. So instead of explaining that shit anymore I’m going to say this.
I believe You.
It doesn’t matter what the circumstances were, I don’t care if you should have been more sober. I don’t care if you weren’t as in control of yourself as you wish you had been. I don’t care if you were a sex worker and you couldn’t talk to anybody else about it at the time, and you’re still confused about it. It doesn’t matter the circumstances were that led to your sexual assault(s).
Me. Too. I believe you and I love you.
Fuck nuance, fuck what you should have done differently, It shouldn’t have happened, and I believe you.
