#SEX

I hope I got your attention with that three letter word πŸ˜‰ Why do we stray away from sexual abuse? Why do we (as a culture) think it’s okay to be sexually violated? Why do we think- “that’s just what happens”? Why do we “look the other way” when someone’s innocence was viciously stolen from them? Why do we think it’s “macho” for a person to steal one’s power? I ask myself these questions every time I see this topic trend- in politics, news, and the media.

I am a SURVIVOR of sexual abuse. It started when I was just a little girl. I agreed because I thought that’s what “love” was… I thought that’s what it meant when someone “liked” you… I thought- if people are aware and don’t step in- everything must be “fine”. I grew up with that same mentality- exposing my mind, body, and spirit time after time. I reached the point that I “knew” I was accepted because I gave my power away. I always wondered- why didn’t anyone SAVE me… Many people knew what was going on; however, we get so caught up in a “reputation”… Things like this are ALWAYS swept under the rug. Under the rug for the next generation to… experience the same violations… enable the behaviors… “breed” violators. The harsh reality in which I hope we can change.

Speak up… Tell someone… Say NO… Take your POWER back… Pray…Pray… and Pray some more… Do WHATEVER you have to do… to EMPOWER yourself and others… To break the CURSE. Have the uncomfortable conversations with children. Unfortunately, this behavior is experienced early on in our lives. Teach your children to express their feelings… Teach them to speak up… Teach them to observe their environments… People, places, and things… Teach them “acceptable” and “unacceptable” behavior. Check in with your loved ones from time to time. Lend an ear or shoulder. A donation of your time can literally prevent a lifetime of trauma… that’s often passed down from one generation to the next 😦

Let’s do our part to destigmatize sexual abuse!

  1. β™‘ Ladies ARE amongst The Most Prolific “Sexual Abusers” EveryOne; so I THINK!!! that Labelling ALL Gentle-Men as “Macho” is somewhat unfair and nefarious…sure, what gets reported is “Macho, Male Sexual Abuse” ; but, of course, a Female would NEVER!!! Sexually Abuse or OtherWise Angrily Abuse AnyOne…”Telling her to calm down is childs play; if you want shit to get real tell her she’s acting like her mother.” ~ Anon, then Run Away to a Safe Distance Very, Very, Very FAST!!! πŸ˜†πŸ˜…πŸ˜„πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜‚πŸ˜πŸ˜€πŸ˜‰πŸ˜Š
