Marley Liss was rapped. That's the word she wants to use. It is now working to change the subject of sex violence
"I think it's important to stop doing all that taboo," she said. "It plays such a role in keeping the victims silent."
Marley had broken her silence and turned it into a book and a movement. But before we get to the way that she changes the lives of other people, let ' s talk about how the stranger is upside down
In August 2016, a few weeks before returning to his Social Work in Ryerson, Marley left in Toronto with her team
The plan was broken into her friend's place, but they were drinking, and eventually dispersed
The stranger at the bar said Marley and offered to help her find her friends. It's bad lucky. He was in the same apartment as a friend, and offered to share a cab
"I just wanted to come home," she said
When they arried, Marley could not remember the number of her friend, and she did not answer the phone. "I failt when I was near him," she said. "I didn ' t know what to do."
"For 30 seconds, he lowed my pts and started touching me."
The guy Marley thinks at his age of 20, said he could hang out in his apartment while she finds out. She lid the bed down and went into the room with a glass of water
"For 30 seconds, he lowed my pts and started touching me." She says he has told him to stop to stop, but he's not
"I've just been beaten," said Marley, and her voice floored."All the time he aged," she said. "I'm sorry." I'm so sorry. It's so fucking up. "
She remembers seeing him walk around the room with a very intense internal struggle
But he didn ' t stop. He continued to use it for sealed hours
He came out of the room and came back with a condom. Then he started using the penetration
"He finished and went to the toilet for a while, and I was still frozen," Marley said
Later, she ran into real, grabbed her and ran out. She put her shoes in the elevator and took a cab home
After a couple of very deep reports, Marley told her neighbor what happened. The two went to the hospital to get a rape kit and reported to the police
The next time Marley saw this guy in court, it was weeks ago. The thing is, the case goes on
"I already knew that rape would have a huge impact on the person, but I didn ' t know how much it was possible," she said. "I was very, very depressed and I believe that all my views were broken."
Now, a 23-year-old student Ruson is using his pain to change the conversation about sex violence and help others to heal
" After that, I didn ' t know what to do with myself. The normal feeling was very strange, and I just started writing for myself to process things and to plug in. "
And she didn ' t put the pen down
"This has become a very important therapy for me and has allowed me to accept all these destructive thoughts and turn them into creation."
After a while, she took the course to share her raw and painful records with her mother
" I was just empty, and it was very difficult. I thought there was this vacum, and I was alone in this, " she said. "And then I realized that if I shared a writing with her, it could be a translator, like this bridge for us, so that she could see where I was."
After she withered her writing, she shared it with her sister and sealed close friends
"My words have vouched a response from people for various reason," she said. "They come from my experience of sex assault, but they touch the painful results of the object culture."
Mental health, body image, and accid victims are topics that have come to the surface for readers
Marley's connected to the editor and started the manuscript. The feedback was taken by the doctor
"My words enabled her to remember her own experience of sex trauma, and she was extraemily and helped her to understand herself."
In November, Marley turned the magazine into a book called
"At the time when I was really pressed and going to suicidal tendencies, this book a book my child, and I was so devoted to share it and get it into the world," she records. "I just felt it was so important to my health."
Poems, vulnerable thoughts, and meantingful questions, written a few hours after the incent filled the pages and the purpose of which is to heal the hearing
Her book was transferred into "Re-Humanize Movement." Marley is organising dance, yoga, and outreeach events to take advantage of them
As in the book, Marley says the "#MeToo" movement is hard to find
"I feel like we've been through sex harassment and violence under the carpet for centuries, and now we're finally looking under the caret, and there's a huge mess out there."
She says the movement of #Meo is like yelling, "Hey, everybody, look at this mess!" through a giant megaphone
She thinks it's our chance to really clean up this mess right now
"I think what's really important is" What's next? "" A lot of people are looking at this mess. "The men who are identified are facing difficulties with a great sense of Guilt and personal crisis, and what role they play in the culture of the object culture."
"It is important to remember that there is no cure," Marley said. "You must do what you like and know that history matters."She spoke of the grief and injustice that the itors can teach others about rauma and "give our collective culture", even if it makes people uncompress.
"I never apologize for using your voice if that's what you've decided to do."
