Thank you for reading and for your response. I am only one person, but you and your family have my full support. I can only imagine what you all have been put through after (and even before) your daughter went public with her story.

The fact that the majority of the internet harassment your family has experienced has come from women is so disappointing and also unsurprising to hear. We all are socialized by rape culture and unfortunately women often play into it as well. I am very sorry you all have had to experience that.

I agree, some form of education around the dynamics of abuse and victim-blaming needs to occur. It is absolutely necessary.
