Are you suffering from sexual harassment fatigue?
It’s not even the beginning of the truth. I bet there are millions of harassers fearing exposure and they’ll get lucky and their name will be left off the public shaming list. So many will get away with it again and again and again.
Victims are silent for many reasons.I don’t blame them. I understand their silence.
I was triggered, thrown back in time and space to the anxiety filled body and victim I was then. I remembered lost details and feeling, remembered more times of powerlessness and panic. It overwhelmed me. Made me forget the woman I am today.
I hope the wave of allegations and truth become a tsunami.
I hope our shared pain, shame, and honesty does something positive in this world.
I hope each person who was wronged receives an apology. Most of all I hope you’re okay.
