I don’t know, Svetlana.
Sirous Martel

I apologise for disrespecting your lived experience. I was so thoughtless because of my white privilege. I will check my privilege immediately. I hope you got the therapy you needed to help you to heal after your monster trauma. Just remember that you are a survivor. You are strong.

Oops: I forgot to insert a trigger warning at the top of this post: I will do so now.
