Here is what no one told me about having boundaries violated by an intimate partner – you find yourself tied down in a tiresome, inconsistent cycle of love and of loss on one hand and of hate and anger, on the other.
I don't know which trauma I can link this incessant self-doubt to, people have this tendency to use 'trauma' and 'histories' to explain various character traits of a person, I do not think that is liable.
I wish many women in the disability sector would open up and talk about the sexual harassment they faced and all disability groups constitute their own sexual harassment committees.
I had concerns about my privacy and my abuser's as we were both queer woman which meant that naming either of us would 'out’ us.
We trans people are prone to intimate partner violence in our relationships as we are vulnerable due to lack of support, acceptance, and love.
After coming out as a non-binary trans person, I was ostracised by my friends who helped spread homophobic rumours instead of supporting me when I was raped.
By day, you were my biggest enemy and by night, something even worse. You told me to touch you in weird places.
Where I was growing up, domestic abuse are normalised to such an extent that nobody even seems to consider it a problem anymore.
Street sexual harassment in forms of groping and stalking and the lack of corrective public policies hinder women's right to public space.
As a survivor of child sexual abuse, I was told that 'I shouldn't have opened the door.' But the fact is, I did open the door. Indian children are pressurized too much into being a good person; they are told to behave in a certain way, to act a certain way, and to basically present a whole package of perfection in front of the world. What the naive child's mind doesn't know, is that being wronged is not equivalent to being wrong.
