Reply To: Lessons learned from the Luke Heimlich saga

James Coghill

“WHY do we persist in telling victims of sexual assault that they are “scarred for life,” that they are “ruined,” that they will never recover? That is the absolutely worst thing that can be said to them.”

Living proof that when it comes to sex all we know amounts mostly to superstition. There is no evidence to back that statement up. No one should allow themselves to be defined or destroyed by a single event in life that didn’t kill them.
