"What did I do? How did I screw up again? What is it about me? Why am I so weak and pathetic?"
"No means no. Even if you think it's a game, even if nobody is screaming, no means no. Every time. Not only that, you need to get permission. You need to be told yes. Every time."
As well as my mom's survivor spotlight on RAINN (Rape Abuse Incest National Network):
Survivor Spotlight Domestic Violence Awareness Month
Also consider checking out this documentary that my mom was a part of: HUSH: Hollywood's Uncovered Sexual Harassment
Or even purchase a copy of my book, Spinning in Circles and Learning from Myself: A Collection of Stories that Slowly Grow Up where I talk candidly about being molested by my step-father and mention being groped by a fellow co-worker as well as threatened by a creepy phone repair man. I also tell the story of me raping a boyfriend. As is my habit I tell these stories with an eye on answers and hope. It is my intention to always tell the difficult stories, to not hide from them, while seeking helpful nuggets of wisdom and suggestions for change. My success rate is yet to be determined. Actually, scratch that. I am successful because my home and my life and my mind are healthy, happy, and safe. :D
