Living In A Secret Society

Overcoming the Shame of Rape

SECRET SOCIETY (140x140)I know all too well how it feels to have a secret that I wish I could tell someone, yet at the same time if I told this secret, it could potentially ruin my character. The moment after it all happened; I knew instantly that I should keep my mouth shut. I had already been deemed a young lady who was lost with a hard time finding her way. I knew it was my fault; had I just followed my intuition and went home that night after celebrating my 22nd birthday with friends, perhaps I wouldn’t have found myself waking up to him raping me.

After a night of partying way too much and having too many drinks, all that I remember is blacking out in the backseat of my friend’s car. The next morning, I found myself going in and out of sleep, not really sure where I was or how I got there, but I also felt a heavy weight on top of me. As I began to open my eyes and began to comprehend what was happening, I was finally able to process the activity of rape. I started to mumble, “no,no”. Then I mustered enough strength to demand that he removed himself from on top of me, “get off of me…stop, stop! get off of me!”

Paris Jackson Tried to Kill Herself


So, as I am sure you guys have heard by now- Paris Jackson, the late Michael Jackson’s 15-year old daughter, has apparently tried to kill herself.

According to published reports, an ambulance was called to the Jackson home at about 2am and Paris was taken away after having either taken an overdose of pills or cutting her wrists. We don’t really know at this point.

Katherine Jackson, who shares custody of Paris with nephew TJ, asked for privacy via her attorney, saying “Being a sensitive 15 year old is difficult no matter who you are. It is especially difficult when you lose the person closest to you. Paris is physically fine and is getting appropriate medical attention. Please respect her privacy and the family’s privacy,”

Debbie Rowe, Paris’ biological mother, also released a statement via her attorney, essentially saying the same thing. Paris had recently made contact with her mother and the two were reportedly getting to know each other.

The last time I wrote about Paris on this site, I predicted things would not go well for her. Earlier this year when she took to Twitter to disparage her family, I saw the writing on the wall. Paris has no parental supervision and has been allowed to run wild online… and probably off. I doubt anyone says no to this child.

Paris needs boundaries. No more Twitter. No more Instagram. No more interviews and no more contact with the media or various other strangers online. This suicide attempt is a plea for attention. Get this child in check now or make no mistake about it, just as I predicted, the world will have another Lindsay Lohan on their hands. If Paris is trying to commit suicide at 15, drugs can’t be far off.

Mark my words.
