I just wanted to draw your attention to a new project we're part of at Scarleteen, as well as to all the content we've highlighted for Sexual Assault Awareness month on the front page.

As most of you likely know, I'm a rape survivor myself, so I think this is incredibly important, and I'm hoping we can make some nice strides for awareness about rape and surviving rape with all of this.

Hi Heather,

Just wanted to say thanks for putting up my story. I got a bit of a shock when I checked Scarleteen today and saw a link to my story on the front page! After the initial panic ("Oh no! What if someone I know sees?!") I felt strangely calm and like a huge weight had been lifted. It's not my secret anymore.

I've heard a lot of things about the power of telling, most of which I was sceptical about, so it was a bit of a surprise to actually feel that for myself.

Thank you so much for this site and all your hard work [Smile]

(Oh, and sorry for the two different usernames. I got confused when I tried to log in to the main site using this name and thought my account must have been purged because I hadn't logged in for a while - I'm more of a lurker than a poster.)

Hey, you. Only passing through today, but wanted to reply to this.

Thanks so much for your piece: I thought it was excellent, and I'm so, so glad that having it published was a positive for you. That makes my day, which is a huge feat today, let me tell you. [Smile]
