Things that have hindered my recovery from the trauma of sexual harm:
2. Private shame, blame, contempt and scorn.
3. Any and all “legal proceedings.”
4. Any and all “investigative” bodies, their reports, fancy findings, and impotent impact statements.
5. The abject absence of accountability for offenders.
6. Watching the horizon for the adjudicating of justice.
7. Staying silent.
