An acquaintance of mine was date raped the other day. She was told by her partner, who she had trusted, that her body consented to him when she could not consent due to the prescription she has to take to sleep. Today that same person physically attacked her.
She is struggling not to just excuse these things because it may have been triggered by his new insulin medication. Even if it wasn't "really him", it was REALLY HER it happened to.
Her daughter's prom was tonight. Somehow that just makes it feel so much more sinister.
They might lose their house because they needed his part of the rent.
I want to help.
For now, I'm on tumblr educating people.
