I promised I would be around more often, well, Total Divas has left me kinda high and dry lately.
Though I finally got to see why Alicia Fox threw a drink in Naomi's face, I loved it lol. Trying to bring out "The bitch" with her heel turn. They got her to dig deep and she's a fantastic heel!
So I've been seeing this thing on facebook, and I decided to really focus this blog entry around it. I haven't watched the video, yet. I'm about to though. I'm not sure if I'm going to like it, if I'm going to be able to handle watching it.
You see, when I was only 15 years old my boyfriend at the time attempted to rape me. But first, he got me drunk. We'd gone out to hang out at his aunt's place, where he swiped some wine, and his parents... neglectful much, left a bunch of fifteen and sixteen year olds alone in their home. I drank probably a quarter of a bottle by myself. I hated the taste, thought it was absolutely disgusting, but at that point I'd been broken down and did anything he told me to.
I was young, had no self esteem, and had gotten a choke hold put on me against a wall too many times to question him again. So I did it. and then once we started playing truth or dare -- yeah kids actually did that back then. -- I was dared to be the slave. I was brought into his room where he attempted to have his way with me until I really realized what he was up to. I fought back with every ounce of strength in me. Thankfully he'd been drinking as well, I believe that's how I was able to get my leg between his and nail him in the balls. I pulled my clothes on as I ran out of the house. I was terrified, and I still have triggers to this day toward it.
So this video will be interesting.
Beware social media dangers. Rape scenario.
Here I go.
WHEW..... Heart wrenching. Absolutely heart wrenching. The first father scared ME with the way he barked his daughter's name out, the second had me in tears. "We already lost your mother, what would I do if I lost you?" The last set of parents TAUGHT their daughter about the risks!! SHE KNEW and she still went out of the house, got into a stranger's car and could have been abducted. I"m showing this video to my ten year old who is still very naive about the world.
She knows "stranger danger" but she doesn't understand the REAL risks. If you have a teenage daughter, or a preteen, show her this video. Hell show your preteen and teenage BOYS this. Y'all know how fucking creepy people are now a days!
Show the video, discuss the dangers, ALL the dangers of trusting the wrong people. Look at my story above. My would be rapist was my BOYFRIEND. My parents didn't know about him because I was that good of a liar. My girlfriends covered for me. They didn't know I had a boyfriend from age 12 until I was 15 years old. They didn't know I hid a boyfriend for THREE YEARS. I hid him because I knew they wouldn't approve of him.
Have a good relationship with your kids, TALK to them.
It's in the best interest of their LIVES to talk to them.
