An open letter to anyone who has experienced sexual assault
I don’t need to know you to believe you. I don’t need to know what happened to you. I don’t need to know how “severe” or “serious” it was, because we should take all sexual assault seriously. Period.
If someone doesn’t take “no” for an answer, they are dangerous.
If they make you too afraid or uncomfortable to say “no” to them, or if they are too important to say “no” to, they are dangerous.
If they do something to you when you are physically incapable of saying “no”, they are dangerous.
I don’t want to support these people. I don’t want to be friendly with them or anyone who thinks what they do is okay, or “not a big deal.” I want to support you.
