Saw this on a friend’s instagram and I love it. I wanted to share this with all of you :)
The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand, not the kindly smile, nor the joy of companionship; it is the spiritual inspiration that comes to one when you discover that someone else believes in you and is willing to trust you with a friendship. - Ralph Waldo Emerson
It is nobodies fault when they’re sexually assaulted / abused and or raped.
I don’t care what you did and I don’t care what anyone told you in regards to your sexual assault, victim blaming you, saying that your clothes were “asking for it”
Or that you “provoked it”
Or that since you were drunk it “doesn’t count”
I don’t care if you didn’t say “no.”
I don’t care if you said a weak “yes” after giving five “no’s”
It isn’t your fault if you stayed silent.
It isn’t your fault if you didn’t “fight back.”
They say you “could’ve, should’ve” done this or that to prevent your attacker from hurting you.
I’m telling you right now what those people have said to you were wrong and they will always be wrong.
You. Did. Nothing. Wrong.
