Give me some time, and I will give you some reading material…
–This blog is old, yet I never had the mental fortitude or plain old courage to continue utilizing it in the way I wanted to. Yet, I am now building a level of courage and fortitude within myself, and as such, I am challenging myself to actualize the point I had for this blog back in 2012: demonstrate the realities of living with rape related traumas & disseminate resources I have accumulated over the years (relating to the aforementioned issues, as well as totality unrelated to it!). This page of my blog is my effort at the latter, my aim towards Democratize Knowledge. Here you can find a variety of sources posted at my whim or per the request of friends/followers. My blog will detail the former: what it’s like to live as a victim of rape, sexual assault, or just violence, both my own experiences and reactions to other situations I hear about.
I don’t claim to be an expert (nor will my eventual doctorate make me one); I am simply a woman with an aim to challenge myself, and a desire to make information, and the knowledge that can be developed when we interacted with such, more readily available to any & all. Questions are welcome, condescending trollishness and outright abrasive harassment is not. I have no fucks to give for anyone seeking to negate my experiences or the experiences of ANY other person; so if such is the goal of any viewer-turn back now, you’ll not find any crumbs to sustain yourself here.
