Welcome! This is a personal blog where I reflect on life, Judaism and my healing from an abusive childhood (including incest and other forms of abuse) and a bit of politics. If you are a victim/ survivor/ thriver, or a friend/ significant other/ spouse/ partner of one, or if you are looking for more information, read and comment below. I began this blog in June of 2003 when I was looking for a place to speak out and I found a community of friends and support. Come on in, ya'll.

Jailing the Victim
According to the Cincinnati Post, a rape victim was sent to jail because she didn't show up in court. Was she just shirking her duty? No, even the police admit that she was being intimidated by friends of the rapist. So she went to jail. What a system.
