The title comes from a quote from Sheriff Darren White on the decision to drop all charges against the boy who raped Daisy Coleman.
This is one of the hardest things I think I've ever done in my life. I'm doing this because I believe it can help other people who have been affected by the victim-blaming that tormented Daisy Coleman and other survivors of rape. I'm doing this because this very brave girl was able to sit in front of the world and talk about what happened to her, and watching her gave me the strength and bravery and reason to do this myself. This is the best way I know to take a stand against the attempts made daily to silence, shame, and blame victims for crimes perpetrated against them. If you agree, please share this post.
