Mmm, right, because victims are liars, uh-huh.

I am telling you, straight up, that EVERY TIME I had contact with the police about my abuser, they took HIS side. He’d put on that calm mask and talk them into believing that I “provoked” him by… what… having opinions? Telling him to stop hitting me? Defending my life when he tried to kill me?

Tell me, what the fuck was I supposed to do when the police wouldn’t pay attention?
