Last October, 2016, I wrote a post after reading about how women are frequently sexually abused. It was real and true, but I hid it after a day or two because I was embarrassed. I didn’t feel comfortable sharing the events because I rarely share anything about me with really anyone at all. Private? Well yes. Strange for a blogger, right? 😉
I have put it back in place. Public. It’s here if anyone would like to see it.
There are so many women standing up these days and saying we should be treated differently, better. Our bodies belong to us. Not the general public. My voice felt early and glaring, but I put it out there.
There are women who have had far worse things happen to them than I have. My heart goes out to them.
May we all, one day, learn to respect each other. All of us, regardless of ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation or anything else that might make us different.
For all of the progress we seem to make, it never seems enough.
I hope that changes. Soon.
