Survivor’s Story – The Sum of What I Have Learned

By Anonymous

Do you remember as a child when you were told exercise is good for you? You exercise to regain yourself, to feel prettier, feel healthy. Sometimes it doesn’t work that way. There are people waiting lurking in the shadows. The shadow people have no heart, no sense of right and wrong. They only think of themselves and have no remorse for the pain they inflict on others.

To survive the showdown you must fight for your life. Shadow people will do more than rape you. You must fight for your life, because it depends on it. Fight like it is the last night you will breath or be on this earth. Fight!!!

Shadow people know their prey. Be prepared for what follows. Change your locks and phone number. My shadow person had a key. I only found out after he broke in and ransacked my safe place. He would call my phone, to the point that my phone would scare me when it rang. I changed my locks, phone number and added a deadbolt.

Trust your instinct. To survive you must know your surroundings. If something doesn’t feel right trust yourself. It is ok to trust your instincts.

Change things up. Don’t always jog in the same place or same time. Don’t go to the gym or leave work like a time clock. Being unpredictable is safe. No one should be able to map out your day or night.

All of these things saved me from my shadow person. I trusted my instincts. If you think you are being followed or stalked believe in yourself? You are not crazy. You are being safe.

Fight for your life. You may be punched, broken and bruised but you will be alive for another day. I was badly punched, broken and bruised but I am alive. Alive for another day, another month, another year.

Fight like it is the last night you will breath or be on this earth. Fight for your life. Fight!!!

Tacoma high-school teacher charged with child rape

High school is a place of trust and respect between teachers and students. I don’t understand why a teacher would cross that line. It is bad enough that there are predators outside of the safety of high school no one should have to experience that at school.

If you have the urge to take away someones innocence pause and think about what you are doing. You will change this persons life forever. They will be haunted by smells, images, memories, and your lasting violent act. It is not easily forgotten. It is a scar and burden they will carry forever.

I do not understand how a civilized society could act like this. It makes me sick to my stomach.

I Need Feminism

I need feminism because the belief still exists that feminism is a way for women to destroy men rather than a way for men and women to have equal opportunities in their lives.

I need feminism because my job application should be a judgment of my skills and not my gender.

I need feminism because there are people who think, “Blurred Lines” by Robin Thicke does not promote rape culture.

I need feminism because the belief still exists that men should hide their emotions and that women are too emotional.

I need feminism because rape is still joked about.

I need feminism because I’m tired of children being subject to gender roles i.e. blue is for boys and pink is for girls.

I need feminism because my emotions and the expressing of my opinions should not be blamed on my period.

I need feminism because anyone should be able to cry without being told to “man up” or to “not be such a girl”.

I need feminism because people should be able to wear whatever they want to express themselves without being afraid or seen as “asking for it”.
