I’m just trying to get through the day most of the time.
  1. “I know you like books, so you should definitely add the Bible to the top of your list.”
  2. “I’m so sorry you went through that. I promise, one day you’ll wake up and it just won’t matter anymore.”
  3. “Have you considered meditating?”
  4. “If you’d gotten pregnant, then your rape could be something to complain about.”
  5. “You’re gay, we get it. God still loves you. Less but there’s always redemption.”
  6. “What were you wearing?”

  8. “You’re really flirty, so I don’t know what you expected.”
  9. “Rape happens. I’m tired of hearing women talk about it like it’s the end of their life.”
