I’m a Victim of Sexual Assault and Ford should be heard!! *trigger warning*

I’m pissed off about this whole Brett and Ford saga.

At what point does power outrank your damn values?

Regardless of your political affiliation, a sexual assault or rape victim needs to be heard dammit!

Now I’m no fan of the orange bandit occupying the White House, but this complicit Congress is really fucking disgusting including the women.

For anyone to say that since it’s been 35 years ago she doesn’t really remember.

Are fucking kidding me??????🤔😒

I was raped at the age of 12 by someone extremely close to me. (subscribe to the blog to find out who😉) 👉🏾olivia-b-shepherd.blog

And let me tell you, I’m 41 years of age now. I can remember the day, time, the school I was at, the house he took me to, the drink he gave me, what he said during the rape, the floor color I laid on, the shoes he brought me afterward, and the way I felt after it happened.

So don’t fucking tell me she doesn’t remember. We have lived with that part of our lives playing on a little screen in our heads forever.

It affects your relationships, and the decisions you make throughout your life.

Now to those who say, ”well she didn’t say anything for years”! Hell, WHY? No one is going to believe you then or now.

I’m living proof that people don’t want to hear that the person they think highly of is a damn monster.😡

My family didn’t believe me and we swept it under the rug, forever lost in all of their minds. Except for mines!

Put yourself in our shoes people, I wouldn’t wish what happened to me on my worst enemy.

There…. I’m done ranting!

Sorry for all the salty language, but this topic really burns my biscuit!!!

Carry On,

Olivia
