With current events being such as they are, your social media pages must be overrun with Kavanaugh hearings. And if you’re a survivor of sexual abuse you may be feeling a bit under attack. I know I and a lot of my friends are. Because of the abuse I survived, I have PTSD. I pretty much have a handle on it most days but when you’re being constantly bombarded with triggering content it can be hard. It’s made especially hard by people who do not tag the content they post properly or not at all.
Last night I got a 30 day ban on Facebook for “hate speech” against white men. Because if there’s one group who is truly oppressed; it’s white men
It was another one of those Facebook games: paste your first profile picture and your most recent one. The idea being to compare how much you have changed in that time.
My first picture, although not uploaded till 2007, is from my first year of university. It was taken in 2005/2006, with an old Motorola flip phone in the Second Cup on the Ottawa U Campus. I was 18.
The second picture is just from a week ago, just before Alyssa’s graduation ceremony. I am 28, turning 29 in just over a month.
It’s an interesting feeling looking at a decade pass.
