If you’re in a relationship that you know is bad news, you can get out of it, no matter how impossible it seems. No one, regardless of gender or orientation, deserves to be made to feel uncomfortable or put through any sort of pain they didn’t consent to.
If you ever need someone to talk to, I’m always willing to listen and offer any advice or resources I possibly can. You can hit me up via Facebook, snail mail, through The Bel-Tower, et cetera. (I’d post my email here, but I’m mostly spam-free and I’d like to keep it that way, but you can always ask me for it.)
For professional advice and support, anywhere and anytime, call RAINN (the Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network) at 1-800-656-HOPE or visit their site at http://www.rainn.org, where they have an online hotline. They have tons of resources on their site for you to check out if you need them.
Remember that any abuse is not your fault, no matter what anyone tells you, and that you don’t have to deal with it. You will always have a support network, even if it only consists of fellow survivors and allies. You’re never alone.
