Survivors are often silenced after coming out as survivors—perpetuating a culture of silence surrounding sexual assault. In Jada’s case, her decision to come forward and speak out has broken that cycle.

These are all unreasonable “excuses”

OH MY GOD!! YESSS!! YESSSSSS!! I BEEN SAYING THE SAAAAME SHIT! THIS IS MANIPULATIVE AND ABUSIVE AND THAT MAN KNOWS EXACTLY WHAT HE’S DOING.
