When you’re having a hard time getting close to someone or being around people, you explain this, and the other person says, “I’m not going to hit you”. Which is beside the fucking point. Abuse survivor. Survivor of white stupidity. Survivor of patriarchal aggressions and violence. Regardless of whether or not they intend to do you harm, you’re having trouble, its difficult for you to be around others, and all they can think about is their hurt feels and intentions.
That’s some of that shit that I don’t like.
