why did I think it was a good idea to invite the girl who messaged me about being assaulted by a girl to share her story with me if she thought it would make her feel better?

ugh I learn to better recognize my emotional limits and then police them better. 

edit: on the other hand, it’s making me feel lucky that I only lost three friends by talking about my assault and really only one good one. 

I want to mourn the deaths of Mike Brown and Eric Garner and Trayvon Martin, and I want to question why the deaths of Renisha McBride and Islan Nettles and Kathryn Johnston haven’t gotten similar traction. Why the beating of Marlene Pinnock isn’t on all of our lips. Why the nation is not familiar with the names of Stephanie Maldonado, or of Ersula Ore. And how many women’s names do we not know because they don’t dare come forward? Because the violence they experience at the hands of the police is sexual, and the shame and stigma around sexual violence silences them?
