This! Thank you…my point exactly. So many women walking around in clouds as adults acting as if they’ve never been exposed to sexually predatory, overly aggressive, abusive, and sociopathic behavior during their lifetime. Good for you for standing up for the young girl was distressed.
Your description is exactly how young girls think its okay to accept such behavior, and believe no adults will rescue her. She’s supposed to be harmed.
And just like that. ..a victim is made and a young predator lives another day to victimize.
Your illustration is perfect. Thank you for sharing your story. I hope this illustrates our roles (and our complicity) in validating and encouraging predators.
