The posters read:

Sister: “You should have tried harder to stop him..”

Ex #1: “You’re a filthy slut. I’ll make sure everyone knows.”

Ex #2: “Forget it. It’s just ‘bad sex’”


"It wasn’t your fault." 

Boyfriend 

Additional writing:

From 14 to 16 I was in an unhealthy relationship. My boyfriend was jealous and controlling, he told me what to wear, where I could and couldn’t go and who to be friends with. He’d be around me all the time making sure I wasn’t doing anything wrong, and when he wasn’t he’d be calling or texting me. I had no friends because he didn’t trust me or anyone else. He was at my school and was around me all the time, waiting for me outside lessons. If I was talking to or even just near someone he didn’t like he’d grab me by the arm and pull me away. He’d push me a lot when he was angry and tried to punch me when drunk but I moved.  Often he would pressure me into doing things that I wasn’t comfortable with, threatening to get angry. He said that he couldn’t help it and it was my fault for not ‘pleasuring’ him. I wasn’t ready to have sex.  I didn’t even have the courage to end it then he broke up with me because he said I was spending too much time at work. 

A month later I tried to make more friends and went out with some of my ex boyfriends’ friends and other people from school. I stayed out late and couldn’t get home so one of the people I was with offered to let me stay over his. He said he’d sleep on the sofa. He was too drunk to understand that I was saying no, or maybe he just didn’t want to listen. It lasted four hours. My ex boyfriend called me a slut among other horrible things, getting his friends to send me awful messages. Him and his best friend told everyone what I did. People made fun of me, my close friends made fun of me. It was a year before out of the people I told what really happened, someone actually took it seriously.  I reported it a year after it happened but it was dropped because of lack of evidence. If I realized what it really was earlier, that it wasn’t my fault and its not normal, perhaps I could have done something. No one told me what an emotionally abusive relationship was, I doubt they thought that a 14 year old could be in one, and no one told me that it doesn’t have to be a stranger in a dark alley to be rape. But, no one talks about that stuff.

The poster reads:

"Hey, we’re going to play a game."

My father, when I was 5 years old.

"Are you sure you are remembering correctly? You were very young and sometimes our memories can be wrong." My doctor, when I tried to talk about it 25 years later.

My problem was that I couldn’t stop thinking about it. 15 years after that I was diagnosed with PTSD.

The poster reads:

"We are writing to inform you that your claim has been evaluated and deemed spurious. As a result, you have been expelled." 

- my high school. I had already finished school; the expulsion went on my records, prevented me from going to prom, and observed no practical purpose other than to punish me for speaking.

The teacher who assaulted me has since been promoted. The assault was the day before my 16th birthday.
