It’s Unbearable How Much I Want To Say “Me Too.”

It’s unbearable how much I want to say “Me Too.”

I want to talk about the boy that pressured me in high school. The one who begged so many times that continuing to say ‘no’ just felt cruel.
I want to talk about the boy who manipulated me until I truly believed that what I wanted was to touch him.
I want to talk about the man who waited with bated breath until it was legal for him to touch me before he contacted me.
I want to talk about the man who rubbed my leg at a Shul function.
I want to talk about the man who tried to take my virginity without my permission.
I want to talk about the man who told me to stop saying that I didn’t like it when he choked me, because he “knew” I loved it.
I want to talk about the man who didn’t know how to touch a woman and who hurt me in the process. I want to talk about the fact that when I asked him to stop he said “shhh!” and continued.
I want to talk about the man who slapped my backside until my eyes watered and ignored me when I asked him to stop.
I want to talk about the man who crawled in to my hotel room bed and ignored my ‘no’s until I finally gave in.

I live in a community where speaking out is a life sentence. So here I sit writing about my ‘Me Too’ stories anonymously. Because it’s unbearable how much I want to say “Me Too.”

    I don’t understand ? How have you been put in the company of all these creeps? I’m so sorry you’ve been exposed to so much abuse. Please speak to a woman you trust, go for talk therapy, it’s not your fault….
