I hate admitting that I was sexually assaulted as a child because the minute I do people assume that it’s why I am a lesbian.
No. Trust me no. Not only would I have been a lesbian regardless but I already knew I was attracted to girls before the assault took place. I knew from a really fucking young age.
But people love to assume that being assaulted turns you gay. And while that can be a factor for some people it is not always the case. Stop invalidating my self awareness.

You are not obligated to love abusive people,
that includes your parents and any other family members or authority figures. Don’t assume that if you are calm and rational they will be.
They never are. You don’t have to be around those people if you don’t want to be.
the type of boyfriends you guys got terrify me, like you guys say ‘he’s still a good guy though,’ ‘he has a good heart,’ ‘He’s the kindest person I’ve ever met,’
after giving me a laundry list of abuse, predatory behavior, sexual assault, and cruelty.
Treat yourself right, just because he’s…
