Exclamation Trump win makes me ill - November 9th 2016, 07:08 PM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of rape or abuse, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread might therefore not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

Warning: I'm about to drop something real and to the heart. It also may be triggering to some people.


Trump won and I'm scared out of my mind. This man has no actual plan on how to help us. He follows Gov. Brownback with trickle economics. As a Kansan I can tell you, this will be a disaster. It's was a terrible failure in KS and we are reaping the consequences of it, now it's on a large scale and will affect everyone...

Then as I type this... I cry... My heart weeps and is so torn. This man, who has so many women placing allegations against him and who has a court case for rape of a minor next month, is our new POTUS. When I first heard his comments against women and his blatant statements about sexual assault I was stunned. Then I was angry. See, his comments they try to pass off as "locker room talk" but to 1 in 6 women and 1 in 3 men and 1 in 4 college students it is not "locker room talk" but an all too reality. This doesn't even take in regards to the lewd comments and treatments we have to endure from puberty until we die. I work in a nursing home, believe me, it doesn't stop. I'm here to say I AM ONE OF THE 1 in 6!

When I heard his comments it threw me back to my assault... To every detail. To coming to in a strange, dark room next to someone I couldn't make out. Asking "who are you" and "where are we" so many times. To my MANY attempts at exiting the room (with failure) to find a friend I was worried about, even in poor states of mind other people come first to me. To being ESCORTED back in the room by people I thought I had made friends with. To the moment he ripped off his condom and shoved himself inside me in his frustration of me not being aroused. Then the next day... The pieces I had to pick up of myself. The bruises, the pain, the feelings of betrayal, the sickening feelings of guilt and stupidity, the worry of what all had happened and what will happen, what should I do, and so much more. I literally hated myself because I "became another statistic AGAIN", an actual thought. Then later to be told I was a whore and a liar and that I "wanted it". Then apparently to no recollection, it was actually TWO men that had assaulted me that night.

When I look at that orange fat piece of shit. I see this experience, I see my assailants. I'm worried about equality and women's rights like I never have been before. I'm physically ill from this. I never came forward with my assault and never got my justice because I was afraid and ashamed. This man represents all of that and so much more. Then people wonder why we don't come forward. I feel as if the assault has happened all over again and I feel as if they've gotten away with ripping who I am apart all over again. This man represents rape culture in America and embodies rapists to so many people out there.

This is just a personal view from me, a rape victim that still can't come forward.

Im sorry you feel this way. But maybe it would help to know that the case is dropped as the woman literally made up the whole thing. It was a false allegation and im glad that this woman did not influence the entire outcome. She literally had zero evidence to back anything up. It was for publicity and to slander him so he doesnt win.
