Today I was assaulted outside of the school I work at, as a part-timer that doesn’t have a licence yet my mum took me, but I had the keys to open up.
Just as I got all the things from the boot of the car there stopped a nice, silver Land-Rover behind us, it’s driver a middle-aged man in corporate wear.
I decided to overcome my social anxiety and try to ask him if we can help with something, as my employer who got there just before us stepped forward,
he opened the door and pointed a pistol at her, asking for her phone, so he did with me and my mum (although we both said we don’t have ours, mine was actually in my pocket),
he had the gun pointed at us three women, then my mum got all up in his face and started loudly praying.
He kept yelling “fuck you” and “I’ll shoot you” and cocking the gun to shoot her,
I tried to push her behind me and calmly asked him not to shoot my mother but he gave me no regard and kept on yelling and nearly shooting, to which my mum retaliated “I know where I’m going,
do you?” and kept praying loudly. Frightened he got into his car and sped off, by some miracle I remembered the licence plate.
The police barely gave a damn about the caseI was sent home to calm down, and then a new car comes to our driveway, but they were Sergeants.
In no racist way their heads were similair, a bald, shaven expanse, and that in itself set me into another shock.
Now, if I, someone who wasn’t as frightened as my frantic employer, someone who only had the gun pointed at my face for a second or two can feel such immense shock and anxiety,
recalling every detail whenever they talk about it or only small things remind me of it; then how does someone feel who has been sexually assaulted?
How violated and scared must someone feel who was raped?Bloody stop with this bull**** where it matters what the person was wearing or what their sexual history was.
Stop excusing rapists and murderers because of one or another bull story. I wasn’t touched and I feel violated, someone who had to endure much more must be in so much agony and feel so disgusting.
Stop victim shaming.Stop letting those who do wrong go free.
