i'm pissed about something and i just want to put it out there if you are often triggered, please stay out of the rape/abuse forum. some of us were treated terribly as children. tortured is probably the best way to put it. hurt terribly by the very people who were supposed to protect us. this forum should be a place for us to share those experiences in whatever way we need to. narrative, story, poetry, or art. what we don't need is to be silenced once more, this time by our own support community. that only adds to the shame we already experience, and there is so much shame in being an abuse survivor. it gives us the message that some things are just so terrible that they can't even be talked about in public. it's not a stretch to think WE must be the ones that are terrible. the whole section forum is labelled triggering, some of us add triggering to the title of our threads or to the top of our posts, as an extra courtesy. if you read it, then complain to management that you were triggered i have no sympathy for you. be an adult about it. you will be protecting yourself, and you will be showing a common courtesy to the rest of us. don't try and silence us. as they say, the truth will set you free.
