Courage & strength
Are the mark of a ‘man’
And you sir, ARE a man. A man of resilience and integrity. Your plea is compassionate and empathetic for others. Your bravery is intense and felt.
I never thought I could experience emotional “likeness” to a man with respect to rape. But what this proves to me is that the internal world of a person who has been raped is eerily similar regardless of the survivor’s gender.
So it is for your validation of others’ experience that I say thank you from the bottom of my heart for your fortitude to pen this post.
Thank you, sincerely.
