  •  OMG! (6+ / 0-)

    My daughter and I were just talking (for the first time and she was in tears) tonight about a time when she was violated at her workplace by her boss and she went along with it because he threatened to fire her if she didn't.

    I'm glad she finally told me because it has been something that has been eating at her for years.  She is no longer at that place and the asshole is dead now.

    Its good for her to let the poison out of her psyche and I'm glad she can finally confide in me about it, but it makes me wonder how many people does this type of shit affect?

    I've had plenty happen to me during the years as well and I suspect many more of us do, but we feel shamed enough to keep it a secret.
