Rehtaeh Parsons

I support helping this CYCLE of VIOLENCE & ABUSE & Sexual RAPE NOT TO CONTiNUE, It’s Not ANY NATIVE’s Tradition to have this happen!!

The Belle Jar

The story is disturbingly familiar.

A teenage girl goes to some kind of get-together, maybe a party.

She is raped by multiple assailants.

The rape is photographed and distributed via social media.

The girl is subjected to horrifying acts of bullying and shaming. She is branded a slut. Her life becomes a living hell.

This girl is not Steubenville’s Jane Doe, although their stories bear a remarkable resemblance. This girl is Rehtaeh Parsons, a 17-year-old from Cole Harbour, Nova Scotia, who hanged herself on April 4th, a year and a half after being raped. Her family took her off life support this past Sunday.

Reading the account of what happened to Rehtaeh is like watching a deadly accident slowly, methodically unfolding in front of you. And there are bystanders, plenty of bystanders, who had any number of opportunities to step in and do something, but none of them do.

But now that I am more able to deal with difficult people things are much more peaceful for me. You too can learn to control your emotions I did.
