Today I was scrolling through my Instagram feed. I always love being able to see friends through the summer even when I’m not around. I came across a post.
6 people pressed like on this. 4 people commented on how funny it was. How is anything about this funny? How is joking about a child being raped funny or enjoyable? It sickens me that I live in a world where anyone could like this picture or find it humorous. It sickens me that people could think this way about children. It sickens me that I am not the only child its ever happened to, and I certainly won’t be the last. This needs to end. Rape isn’t funny. Rape isn’t a joke. Rape isn’t a word to be casually tossed into the air. This. Is. Not. Funny.
I figured that I would begin my page with an introduction. For my privacy purposes, I’m going to go by Lizzy. This page is a place for me to freely express my feelings and emotions. I have recently remembered the horrible things done to me by my father when I was younger. I needed an outlet, a way to talk about my feelings and maybe even help others who have gone through similar experiences. While I am fighting this and categorize myself as a survivor, some days are better than others. Some days I feel strong and empowered and ready to take on the world. Other days I don’t leave my bedroom. He did a lot of things to me, but one thing he did not do is take my power away. He tried and failed. So, I will be talking about my feelings, things happening in my life, and anything else that pops into my brain. I want this to be a safe place for everyone. For me, and anyone else who may happen to read this. Please be respectful of that. I’m going to now give a list of common names that may be used so that no one is confused.
Mom- my mother obviously
Poppy-my stepdad and possibly soon to be legal father
J- my birth father and abuser
L- my stepmother and a witch
Rodney- my cat and best friend
Lil- little sister
Lynn- little sister
Liv- little sister
Z- boyfriend 🙂
I think that’s everyone, I will add more as everything happens as need be. I will probably be writing again soon.
