Sexual assault is never okay. Although some survivors may stay silent for years before sharing their stories, the act is in no way shape or form acceptable.

Together their quotes echo the impact of the hashtag : a list as physical proof of a rampant issue, but also a means for being seen and supported. I bought into that too. When I [was] a child. My home is carpeted with the tongues of men who expected me to [be] grateful for their harassment.
