BamBam

She wrote, “I Was Abused by a Nanny as a child between the ages of 2-8

”She used my fist to masturbate and forced me to suck her breast while at it. It has affected me in different ways. I have also been raped a few times as a young girl. I wasn’t ready to have sex with some of the guys I dated in the past, so they forced themselves on me.

”Look, sex MUST be consensual even in marriage! Sex must be consensual at all times! Don’t manipulate a mind into it! Not to talk of children?!

”Hurt and mentally sick people hurt other people! That nanny was clearly abused or possessed and felt it was okay to do all she did to me! We have sick people making laws to permit their sick orientations! Make it stop!

“I know some vile mouths and sick-hearted people would say rubbish and make unrelated comments! Some may spin this out of context, some may feel I should have been quiet, Y’all are the major cause of the problem in this world, abused people are committing suicide and some are abusing other people. I owe nobody any explanation! I’m doing my bit. If you care, let’s go!

”For the ones with the fear of God, let’s come together and build a community to protect each other and our children from these predators! Let’s do our bit to contribute to healing this dark world. Let’s do real kingdom work.”
