The Shame Belongs To The Rapist, Not The Survivor!
Here are a couple of links to some brave blogging women who want to participate in Silence The Shame! Both have recently revealed their secrets of going through the anguish of rape. Please be careful, readers. Both of these posts could be highly triggering.
First, is Hard Posting Again at Pearls and Dreams. She talks about a predator who "dated" her, but was already married.
Second, is A Secret, Silent Shame posted by Moof. She had the amazing bad luck of running into two predators in one evening--her first time to get away and have some grown-up time after leaving an abusive relationship. This, I'm sure, was not what she had in mind. She got away from one monster, just to fall into the trap set by the second.
Both of these women are amazing in their strength and candor. Let's support them all we can.
