As I was talking about consent and videos today, I found this article which explains other issues I was not aware of. It’s extremely well written. I hope you will take two minutes to read it.
I’m not exactly sure why people and groups such as universities still need to produce videos about consent. How in the world is this still an issue??!! Is respect such a difficult concept to grasp? Oh man, and then there is the issue with high profile people getting off without consequences because the judge is worried about the perpetrator’s well being??!!! What do we REALLY need to do to rectify this situation? I wish I knew the answer. With my blog, I hope to open the eyes of people to see what life is like in the aftermath of abuse. Some may even say there is no life, the person becomes an empty shell which I most definitely have experienced from time to time. Please pray with me that these videos are no longer needed and those of us hurt by this can heal without worry of new cases of people experiencing similar pains.
