I suspect that I have lost readers with my stance in my previous blog post.
I cannot stand silent when there are people being harassed, abused, threatened, and/or oppressed in any manner. I will take a stand against it, and I will do my best to provide evidence that showcases what happened and why I am making the statement.
If I lose readers over it, then so be it. I know what it’s like to be invalidated and not believed, and no survivor should have to go through that. I will do what I can to amplify their voices so that they no longer have to suffer in silence, so that justice can be found, so that by acknowledging the existence of this problem and confronting it we may someday solve it and create a more loving, accepting, inclusive, and respect-for-all culture.
