Undoing the Normalization of Rape
Sexual violence is one of the most complicated, messy, disastrous things, and we need to allow victims to process in whichever way is natural for them. We must allow them to leave their churches and quit their jobs and fail their friends and distance themselves if they need to. We must allow them to do what they need to do in order to survive. We need to leave room for the feelings of pain and bitterness and grief and rage and rawness to work themselves out. We need to let them know we are on their side, and we will fight with and for them.
