Trig #WhyIDidntReport

Twitter is blowing up with this right now.

Because my mother never would have let me out of the house again.
Because I didnít know I had been slipped a drug.
Because I had no idea how and why it happened.
Because the guy would have denied it.
Because I would have become the talk of the town.
Because I didnít value myself or my virginity that much.

Because nobody would believe me.
Because everyone was threatened.
Because I already didn't trust anyone before it happened.
Because I didn't love me.

Because I don't remember all the details since I was so young.
Because he was a Catholic priest so people thought he was a good guy.
Because I'm autistic and fear the court would use that against me.
Because if I'm ever ready the statue of limitations is up now anyway.
Because he's dead anyway and can't hurt anyone anymore.

It blows my mind how many people tweeted about their experiences. I think it is therapeutic for me to realize how common this is. Here I felt so alone from my experience, I simply put it out of my mind for the rest of my life until recent years, only because my marriage became a huge problem for me and I took a look back in therapy. I believe honesty and transparency has to be a good thing for the betterment of mankind. I hope that proves to be true.

Because I didn't know what abuse looked or felt like.

Because I had grown up that way.

Because I thought obsession = love.

Because I didn't trust my own body or perception.
