A regular client turned good friend was sexually assaulted and asked me if I would go with her to the police station to make the report. Here is what happened.
Things to note:
1. There may be some triggers around sexual assault, victim blaming, and incompetent police officers.
"What was the happiest moment of your life?"
"My boyfriend and I ate Chinese food in the bathtub last week. That was pretty nice."
"I had this idea that I was going to change the world: racial justice, peace on earth, things like that. I went to every anti-war march there was. But I’m pretty sure that I didn’t budge society an inch. So now I just sit in the park and watch the little tots walk by. They’re so cute. Oh dear, look at that one!"
"What’s the most frightened you’ve ever been?"
“I witnessed a friend get murdered.”
“I work as a cook, and after work one evening, I went across the street to a bar. My friend had his dog there, and it started playing with this other woman’s dog. My friend bent down to untangle the leashes. The woman’s husband started accusing my friend of being too pushy or something, I don’t know, and just jumped on him.”
“Did he just stab him once?”
“No, he kept stabbing him. I tried to pull him off but I couldn’t.”
In America? The university is considered a commodity, one that can easily be purchased by the wealthy, but not the poor. These approaches represent a fundamentally different cultural attitude: elsewhere, education is a public good, an investment or a right; in the U.S., it’s a privilege reserved for wealthy elites.
I’m not for abortion
I’m for every woman having the right to choose what to do with her own body
I’m for preventing the fear of what to do with a child that is unwanted or unplanned
I’m for protecting women from back-ally abortions because they have no other option.
thats why it’s called pro-choice, not pro-abortion
THIS IS WHAT I HAVE BEEN TRYING TO TELL PEOPLE.
