Sexual assault is NEVER the victim's fault...EVER!
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

Thank you for sharing more of your story with my visitors and me, Shayla. I've already commented in a comment thread elsewhere on this site on your statement about the sexual assault being your fault. But for the sake of other visitors, sexual assault is NEVER EVER EVER the victim's fault. No one EVER "asks" to be sexually assaulted. To say that you "asked for it" is to blame yourself for the criminal actions of someone else. As for "not acting like a rape victim", with all due respect, your mother doesn't know what she's talking about. It is not at all uncommon for victims to show no outward signs at all. Clearly, you've shown BOTH inward and outward signs. She's allowing her own biases to cloud her ideas. I suspect it's her way of not taking responsibility for her part in it all. I can only hope that you have access to more counselling, Shayla. You need a lot of help to deal with the repercussions of being so badly abused by so many. I wish you all the best.

She's a winner over it and now cares about all her many visitors whom she set up her site for. She truly was visionary in setting it up. She wants each of us to live our lives to the full. Shayla please talk to a counsellor who will help you to heal and to Love your wonderful and beautiful self. Look in that mirror today and begin the process of loving and caring for that beautiful body of yours. It's all yours Shayla. be nice to it, be gentle with it, caress and cuddle it with your own arms. soothe it all over with creams letting go of the not so nice memories of what those aniamls of the male species did to it.
