Because it needs to be said (Reblog)


This is not the first blog post I wanted to write. Disclaimer: this will not be written well as I’m hastily trying to write it out as quickly as I can get it over with. I will not re-read this to myself for errors, I will not bother with grammar. I just need to get it out.

I am reblogging this from Hello, This is Justine to give it a signal boost. HUGE TRIGGER WARNING!

I can’t control how you respond over on her blog, but believe me when I say that if you post ANYTHING THAT IS NOT SYMPATHY AND SUPPORT OF JUSTINE, without hyperskepticism and without victim-blaming, you will be banned. And if you’re a first-time commenter here, be warned… I do have all first-time posts in moderation, so depending on your post, it may not even see the light of day.

Justine, I know these are just words, but I believe you and I support you. I sincerely hope you are able to heal. I hope you are able to share your words with the world for many, many years to come. You are brave and strong and amazing. Please don’t let the assholes make you think any differently. You are better than them, and better than Joe. Always remember that.

  1. Thank you for speaking out and up in my blog. I can’t read all the comments as they seemed to have gotten worse once HN and Reddit got a hold of it. But I appreciate your time and words and it certainly eased the pain I was feeling when blasted with “Erin” and others.

Did you read the post and all the comments?
