Let it be Known.
There are some things that society has determined as socially unacceptable to talk about, sexual assault being one of them that is the most silenced. But silence is acceptance, and for society to not allow survivors to discuss pieces of their past makes someone blame themselves for this. Jennifer Baumgardner has recently come out with a new shirt that forces society to think about how we discuss rape, or at least to break the silence for those who can't find the words. I am all about the political invested in this shirt, its not about saying I was raped, its that I feel I can't talk about it, so I keep it locked up.
