Jameson Blake shares painful story of his sister who was a rape victim

He advised everyone who experienced sexual assault to ask help from the National Sexual Assault hotline of the RAINN (Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network) Org.

Hashtag Jameson Blake bravely opened up about his sister’s painful experience.

In a series of tweets Thursday, June 18, Jameson revealed that his sister was raped and sexually assaulted.

According to James, he decided to share it publicly to spread awareness about rape and sexual assaults and make people realize its gravity. He also added that he wants to convey a message that it will never be the victim’s fault.

“This is my sister’s story. We are here to spread awareness and make people realize the gravity of this matter. To everyone who has gone through any kind of sexual assault, remember that it will never be your fault.”

Blake also explained why they didn’t take the case to the court saying they respected the decision of his sister to heal and recover peacefully away from those who hurt her.

“I am sure a lot of people are wondering why we never took it to court. My family and I respected and stood by Abi’s decision to not take any legal charges as she chose to heal from this peacefully and away from the people that hurt her.”

In his last tweet, he advised everyone who experienced sexual assault to ask help from the National Sexual Assault hotline of the RAINN (Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network) Org.

If you’ve experienced sexual assault, you’re not alone. To speak with someone who is trained to help, call the National Sexual Assault Hotline at 800.656.HOPE (4673) or chat online at online.rainn.org.”

Meanwhile, prior to Jameson’s tweet, his sister Abi already made her story public via a series of tweets also early morning Thursday.

Abi recounted how she was raped at age 16 by her guy friends while she was intoxicated.

She also narrated everything that she had to endure after that painful experience and how she managed to recover and heal.

But ultimately, Abi reminded everyone that rape and sexual assault will never be the victims’ fault.

The issue of rape and sexual assault has made headlines lately on social media after the viral exchange of broadcaster Ben Tulfo and Frankie Pangilinan.

Frankie, nicknamed Kakie, tweeted about teaching people not to rape rather than schooling women on how they should dress. Her tweet was in reference to the viral post of Lucban police reminding women to dress properly so they won’t get raped.

Her tweet was apparently read by Ben Tulfo who replied saying how a woman dresses up spurs criminals to commit a crime.

Kakie then replied that the way someone’s dress shouldn’t be seen as an opportunity to sexually assault a person. She also added that that line of thinking is what’s normalizing the rape culture.
