“And the ugly truth is I didn’t want to live. I remember crying myself to sleep and wishing I would not wake up. He has not shown an ounce of remorse for the pain he caused. But healing is not some linear, simple thing. The lasting effects of rape are pernicious as they hack silently away at the daily efforts one tries to make toward a life with meaning. “

The statement given by the third victim Jane Doe #3 mentioned-

“How can I tell anyone that I had gotten myself in a situation where I was regularly mentally and emotionally abused, and raped repeatedly? He’d hurt me. He’d ignore me. I’d grovel at his feet apologizing to him for what he did to hurt me. Then he’d show me kindness. When you’re raped, it’s not your surface that’s been most defiled. It damages you on a cellular level.”

Danny Masterson’s case has left everyone shocked in the world of entertainment. It is very important to speak up against crimes like r*pe, domestic violence, and s*xual and emotional abuse.
