A friend of mine shared this post on Twitter today about something one of her friend’s witnessed in NYC last night, and I felt it was important for us to post it on here - as a way of both getting the word out and seeing if anyone has any way of helping the situation (blogging, writing an article, knowledge of a missing person, etc.) Please share if you can - there has to be something we can do to help. It is possible to get in touch with the original source - please first email it to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will forward it to her.
The posters read:
Me: “I need to leave my clothes on.” I pushed his hands away repeatedly.
Him: “Let me lick you just once,” as he yanked my pants off
"You have herpes." — doctor, 6 days later.
Thank you for reaching out and courageously sharing your story with me. I am so sorry this happen to you. And this is not your fault. I would like your permission to share your email with ______, so she can help you. You are not alone.
