But they hide in plain sight and they’re SOOO skilled at deception and manipulation. Just another form of rape culture, wherein we are forced to teach our children how to avoid being harmed by these animals, because they aren’t going to change. Because they don’t want to.

That’s my take on it, anyway. I can’t tell you how many conversations I’ve had with my kids on this subject. Both their dad and I were abused. We are hypervigilant.

When my son refused to use the women’s bathroom with me anymore and I had to let him go to the men’s by himself I about had a panic attack. For the next 3 years.

I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up, but I know I want it to be spelled right and punctuated correctly. I guess that’s something.
