"It's been years. I don't feel the pain in my vagina anymore".
"You know, every man in that family tried to touch me. Mama, Kaka, Masa. But Baba…" "What? What did he do?" "He didn't stop them!"
"I wanted to run away, I was crying and screaming, he penetrated something and I felt like I was dying and then I was lying on the floor, naked. My pet, Tito, licked my head and arms and sat there, without barking. This continued. Just because they wanted to derive pleasure, I was raped by Kaka and Mama on the very same day just before my exams. My vagina bled, days after days. I didn't feel the pain anymore. Their penises were so familiar and so friendly, yet so unwanted. I was always ready with my legs spread, with my clothes off my body. Baba and I hardly spoke then. I couldn't tolerate them. In fact, I was pregnant and I was asked to choose abortion, obviously!"
"I will never have kids. I have complications. I have been raped more than 30-40 times, I can never have babies, but I want to adopt so many dogs and so many cats and live happily… HAPPILY".
She is smiling but do we really know the intensity of the "Stop! Help me!" behind her smile?
