petite610/19/17 08:06 PM

amandajaye10/19/17 05:43 PM

amandajaye10/19/17 10:19 AM
x*The only sense in which I think victims might be somewhat responsible is in not reporting abuse and not acting on it at the time.
Beard10/19/17 12:08 PM
x*I think that's part of the abuse. It's the control the abuser has over the victim that the real the motivator (not how they dress/act). NT
amandajaye10/19/17 12:27 PM

petite610/18/17 02:57 PM
x*The point is I'm not wrong like you said. I guess another point is politicians' memories seem to fail when negative information comes out. NT
Mako10/18/17 03:04 PM
x*so you're adding about memory when she's clearly stating she has not dealt personally with this woman's travel? NT
