Anonymous Story: Me Too

Anonymous Story: Me Too

I went skinny dipping at night in the Gulf of Mexico. I was the only one among my 2 cousins, brother and the husband of a cousin. It was dark enough so I felt safe. I was with my family, so I felt safe. I wasn’t safe. In the water, I was molested by my cousin’s husband. I told my cousin and her siblings. They blamed me. I was called a liar and lost my family support network. But I won my power back when I spoke up and I will continue to speak up.
