LONG POST- I've been a mess thinking about what happened to #EurydiceDixon #ripbeautifulsoul
Its VERY close to home with me.. This is what community is ALL about, we are STRONGER together, our voices will only be heard and changes will only be made if we stand together.. I've cried & cried for @eurydicedixon & the 29 other woman that have lost their lives this year at the hands of men.. Now I'm crying writing this.. a lot of you don't know, I've been sexually assaulted not once but 6 times, I once was sexually abused in an alley way beside a night club in surfers paradise whilst people casually walked by as I screamed for my life, I was lucky enough to break free, I was held down on a park bench intoxicated and raped by someone I knew at age 17 (whilst his friends watched on) that I've never told anyone about, my friends and I have been jumped- where I have legit lost my shit taken off my heels and gone absolutely psycho attacking these men- protecting my girlfriends (adrenaline I don't flight I fight-thankfully), when I was a teenager and would walk the streets with my friends going from party to party I'd carry a little filleting knife with a plastic cover (luckily I never had to use it), I've saved a girl on a train from being abducted by a man who was dragging her to the upstairs carriage, I pretended I knew her said "hey babe, who's that and why has he got a hold of your arm like that?" The look on this young girls face was like she was petrified and had no idea who this man was!! I said "who the fuck are you cunt" with a rage on my face "get your fucking hands off her" I was 17 she would have been 15 he would have been in his 30's.. I had nothing to lose and I would have fought the filthy fucker to the death, I screamed into the next carriage two other men came cause they could hear me, we physically held him down & threw him off at the next stop into waiting guards, the girl stayed with me till her stop, met her mum at station I got off made sure she was safe then got on the next train.. I shouldn't have had to do that, it should NOT happen..
