Women talk to me about their assaults all the time. But maybe we aren't sharing with enough men. Perhaps we need a National Rape Survivors Coming Out Day so we can put a face on this.
We need to report this to our partners, friends & families even if we never reported it to the police. Then they WILL know. I can't blame men for not believing the stats if they don't have faces to these numbers. Because when I hear 1 in 4 women are raped, I KNOW it's true. And so do most women.
I know it's painful, just like coming out is painful. But gay people put a face on their issues with THEIR faces. So should we.
