Rough sex does not cause a “blowout” fracture to your left eye and numerous broken bones in your face, two missing teeth, a lacerated liver, broken ribs and serious bruising in several places.
Rough sex in the past does not mean you want to be raped in the future.
Rough sex in the past does not mean you want to be murdered, and there is no doubt that her death was his intention.
Being a performer in the adult industry does not mean you cannot be raped.
Anyone can be raped. Those involved in making adult films, those involved in the street based sex industry, those involved in the indoors sex industry, those who work in peripheral sexual service industries such as cam work, babestation, chat lines.
Whatever we wear, wherever we go, yes means yes and no means no of course extends to ALL WOMEN. And to men.
Being so terrified that you freeze does not mean yes. Crying and struggling does not mean yes. Being beaten till you submit possibly because you are now unconscious does not mean yes. Having suffered so much trauma and rape in the past that you know how to minimise the physical pain and you do what you must to survive does not mean yes.
Having been raped in the past but having made the decision to not pursue justice does not make you a liar. Not then and not now. We all know what the criminal justice system is like. Look at this rapist, he thinks winking at a female attorney as she prosecutes him for rape and attempted murder is acceptable. And see how bad it obviously is because contempt of court has not been added to his charges.
I believe her. As I believe any woman who has been raped. You are not alone Christy Mack and we know he is guilty.
