"When you call my name it's like a little prayer
I'm down on my knees, I wanna take you there
In the midnight hour I can feel your power
Just like a prayer you know I'll take you there"

Thanks again to our models:

[STORY SERIES, 2 of 9] 💟I don't remember exactly when I started hating my stomach. Probably for as long as I have been aware that mine could be compared with others. .
.
💟Ugh, why does it look like a sad face!? I'd think to myself and say to family and friends. I hated the extra skin I had above my belly button. Why was it there? It seemed to mock me. .
.
💟No matter how slender I became, it was still there. Frowning at me. .
.
💟I'd poke and pull at the skin while sitting, standing, whether in front of the mirror or not. Sometimes I'd be thinking about this damn frowny face belly even during conversations with people that weren't related. .
.
💟It wasn't just my belly, but it was shame about being overweight. Even if I happened to be at a healthy weight, I felt fat. .
.
💟And it was common among my friends to talk about what we hated about ourselves. We'd sit on the bed and pinch our bellies, our thighs, our underarms. It was a grand ol' "I hate me" fest. .
.
💟I've carried this shame for so long. Putting out the Invisible Scars photos and videos was one of the hardest things I've done. I have nowhere to hide. Here is my belly, forever frowning.
.
.
💟Yea, I could get a tummy tuck. I could switch one (invisible) scar for another hip-to-hip scar that would result from the surgery. .
.
💟Maybe someday I will. But I won't do it so that I can validate my existence in this world or to impress anyone other than me. For now, my belly represents a beautiful imperfection; a map of where I have been and where I am now. .
.
💟This is one of my Invisible Scars. What are yours? Please watch the Invisible Scars video on YouTube and subscribe to my channel. I would love your feedback. [LINK IN BIO]

[STORY SERIES, 1 of 9] 💟I was 10 years old when my 50-year old neighbor molested me. .
.
💟He lived on the same street as I did. On a regular basis I'd walk up the street, past his house, and around the corner to visit my friends who lived on the other side. .
.
💟I was a chubby girl with thick glasses. At this age, I recall being aware that I was not what most would consider attractive. I was a jokester, and made others laugh so that I would not be laughed at. That didn't stop kids from making fun of my weight. I still received plenty of cruel remarks. But at least I was funny. .
.
💟When this older man on my street consistently gave me attention, it made me feel good. It made me feel like I was interesting and I mattered. None of the kids my age were interested in me like this. I wasn't able to see that this may not have been appropriate. .
.
💟Conversations became regular and eventually I began receiving single red roses cut from his yard when I passed by. I had no romantic feelings about this, I just thought he was my friend. .
.
💟He had a boat he parked outside of his house intermittently. One of the days he parked his boat outside, he asked me if I'd like to see the inside of it as I passed by. .
.
💟Not knowing any better, I agreed. .
.
💟I remember the inside of the boat vividly to this day. There was a door leading down into the boat, which he opened, and told me to go down the stairs. Once inside, I saw an L-shaped bench with fishing equipment hanging on the walls. Up above me the light shone through a square opening.
.
.
💟He followed me down the stairs. .
.
💟I watched himm shut the door behind him. Then I watched him reach up above and close the opening in the ceiling. This is the point where I began feeling uncomfortable, by my young mind was incapable of understanding why. .
.
💟This is when I got my first kiss.
.
.
💟This is the first man to touch me beneath my clothes. .
.
💟This is the day I lost my childhood. .
.
💟This man did not spend one night in jail. In the early 90s he was able to plead no contest -- which means he admitted neither guilt nor innocence. He got to live his life after what he did, but mine changed forever.

The #metoomovement scares a lot of people. Maybe it's ignorance, guilt, or a cruel heart. You are not alone. #ibelieveyou. This is #yourtruth and you will heal the right way for you. The people that try to hurt you are broken. You are a warrior. #metoo #SpeakUp My new video on #victimblaming is on the link tree.

This has been a shit week for survivors of sexual violence. (Or victims, if you feel that term fits you better, which is 100% legit). It’s terrible to witness the character assassination of survivors over and over. It’s terrible to see people you may have once trusted blame victims and cast doubt. .
.
All I can say is I’m sorry, and I see you. And I believe you. .
.
Here’s me on the beach with my dog today- two things that make me feel joy and calm when the rest of the world feels too ugly. If you are struggling this week, I hope you have things that inspire those feelings in yourself. ❤️.

Sometimes I write songs to my younger self like lullabies with an advocate edge. This one is called I believe you. As per usual, it was written as I was recording, so if it sounds unfiltered... well, it’s because it is and as it should be.

There is more public discussion about sexual violence than ever before, and that's raising more questions than ever before.
AASAS asked experts in the field of sexual violence to support survivors and join the discussion on #IBelieveYou ...Now What? Here are some thoughts from Waypoints in Fort McMurray on the court of public opinion and the concern some have raised about the pendulum swinging too far.

Post therapy musing from a journal entry. —————————————————————
There is a certain kind of hell that comes along with body memories. Of feeling the phantoms of hands, lips, body parts that are no longer touching you. My body does not forget, even when my brain does. My body holds the trauma in its cells.
I’m getting better at not blaming my body for the remembering. It did not choose this. I did not choose this but here we are, living with it. I know that I will have moments when I fall back into the familiar arms of self-loathing but today, I hold my aching body as it remembers. I move with kindness and speak only with a gentle tongue.
I write an ode to the miracle of my still breathing body. I write an ode it its resilience. I write an ode to everything that I am and everything that I am becoming. The trauma is leaking from my cells onto the paper. This writing will heal me.

#IBelieveYou has set out to change the way the public—mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, friends, and family—responds to someone who has been sexually assaulted.
This year we invited post secondaries in Alberta to join the conversation in support of survivors around Now What? How do we continue to support survivors and how to we best manage this major culture shift that is happening.
This video shows the perspective of leadership at Concordia University in Edmonton.

I believe Jessica.

Sexual assault is NEVER, EVER the victim’s fault.

She was thirteen. There was NO consent.
I cannot express the degree of disgust, anger, and disappointment in @northlandsedmonton .
@northlandsedmonton is not a safe space. It’s not safe for young girls. Youth. Women. Indigenous people(s). Families. Edmontonians.
Shame on @northlandsedmonton
Shame on @cityofedmonton for supporting, in any way, an organization that is not safe for the people and visitors of #Edmonton.

I support, and will ALWAYS support, victims of sexual abuse and assault.

I believe Jessica. And Jessica, I’m sorry you have had to endure this trauma and re-traumatization because of greed, denial, and so many other factors that were never, ever your fault.

Not nearly enough people know how to talk about sexual assault especially as it pertains to kids or teenagers and why recovered or newly disclosed memories are valid and should be taken seriously. What I keep hearing described as the Me Too era will never attain its goal of holding accountability and ending rape culture if we don’t all value empathy and seek to educate ourselves about the psychological and emotional effects of experiencing such assaults, and how survivors live afterwards. I hope my work sheds some light on this process as so much of what I’ve read and heard concerning Christine Blasey Ford greatly misses the mark about enduring trauma at an age when it typically remains in the dark yet stays with you for life. We can’t just say we believe survivors we must commit to understanding how they’ve been able to survive. #ibelieveyou #yourstoryisreal
