Some restorative truth.

Hello courageous people,
I know many of us have felt a lot of triggers, retraumatization and emotions from the Mackenzie and Polanski news events. There has been a lot of victim blaming and plain ignorance about the dynamics of abuse being displayed in the news and in online forums.
It's been a rough last few days for these of us who are out there trying to heal and to set things right in the world.
The ever amazing Angela Shelton spoke out and has written a beautiful response piece in attempt to dispel the lies and provide some truth and perspective.

Here is the link. Trigger alert for mention of rape, incest, sexual abuse, graphic mentions of sex, molestation, drug abuse and sequestration.

It is an amazing post and it restored my faith in my own sanity and in the validity of what I've been seeing this week. I hope you find it encouraging too.

Thanks for posting this, it's great. I'm seeing more of this type of article, so maybe there are a few sane people left. But I think she said it the best of anyone I've read.

I loved that! Thanks so much for sharing it. It resonates a lot with me, as a survivor of father/daughter incest, too, and puts to words so many things I've been struggling to get people to understand
