I am a sexual assault survivor who strives to raise awareness about sexual violence and to educate others about everything that goes along with it, as well as to foster a feeling of solidarity and understanding among those who have survived similar abuse and who crave empathy and support in regard to their experiences with sexual assault and healing.
Much of the content on this blog is very real and very ugly, and at times explicit, so I feel compelled to issue a blanket trigger warning here unto all of it.
Constructive dialogue in the comments section will always be welcome, but threats, personal attacks, and victim blaming will not be tolerated.
For a good resource on the realities and myths of sexual violence, I recommend ConsentEd.ca to start.
If you want to know a little bit more about me, the author, my name is Cassy (rhymes with “brassy”). I am a 22-year-old, heterosexual, cisgendered, redheaded, and able-bodied linguist, feminist, atheist activist, and avid birder. I shave my eyebrows, but not under my arms, and I’m a huge Amanda Palmer fan. That’s pretty much it.
Thank you very much, and welcome!
