tw rape abuse
My dash is constantly littered with rape revenge quotes and patches and all sorts of quips on attacking ones abusers.
Let me preface by stating i 100% stand behind killing and outing abusers and rapists.
But in reality - these things are rarely possible or plausible.
Often our abusers still are in positions of power in our lives or the lives of those close to us.
Often our abusers have the power to still control us, ruin us, and destroy us.
Often we open our mouths and speak to those we trust about our abusers to find even those we love do not believe us, or that they blame us.
Often we do not even know the name(s) of our abuser(s).
Often we do not have the slightest chance to ever ever damage our abusers at fucking all.
So while I stand behind and support those who do bash back and destroy their abusers.
I stand behind and with those of us that never ever can.
We are allowed to cry tears over our abusers.
We are allowed to never ~recover~
We are allowed to never open our mouths or speak up.
We are allowed to never reveal our pain.
We are allowed to never feel brave or safe or strong or okay.
We are allowed to never be able to fight back.
Just as we support violence against abusers, we must support sorrow and pain and silence.
