❤ best part of the story thus. In all my years of advocacy I have only seen maybe 3 male advocates. Usually women try to discourage men from becoming victim advocates. They were some of the most empathetic men I’d ever met. I am sorry you had to hide your rape and go through your trauma in silence. But I am happy you have made it your life’s work to pay it forward so no victim has to go the long journey alone. Bless you!
