rachel

 

I was raped by my babysitter. I am a woman and I was raped by a woman. I was in second grade. At such a young age, I did not understand. "Why is she touching me? Is this okay? We are both girls, does that make it okay?" Those are the things I used to think. There was so much I didn't know, and my lack of knowledge left me powerless. No one should ever feel powerless. If knowledge is power, then power is protection. We must protect each other by educating each other.
