In February 2023, our friend Torch the Witch was sexually assaulted by a man she knew. Torch decided to write about it almost 2 months later. She decided this after hearing the frustrated pleas of a younger woman who expressed, “Nothing will change because we still don’t talk about it.”

Torch decided to talk about it and this writing touched us. Many of us have had similar experiences. You can find Torch’s own words about surviving this wherever you follow her writings, both here, and at Medium: Here is an excerpt:

* * *

But I spent about a month in bed, sick to my stomach. Panic attacks. Crying. Nausea. Self-flagellation. A LOT of self-flagellation. So fucking much. I should have known better. I was stupid to have trusted him. He was such A NICE GUY.

I eventually had to tell my kid because she wondered what the hell was up with mum. Do you know how absolutely shitty it is to have to tell your 16 year old daughter that mum was raped? Like she doesn’t feel unsafe enough in this world already.

I just haven’t known what to do with this. Therapy is on the docket as soon as I can afford it. I am so fucking angry though. I am so angry that instead of enjoying my new life back home, THIS FUCKING THING KEEPS POPPING UP IN MY HEAD.

I DON’T HAVE TIME FOR THIS. Do you understand, men? I DON’T HAVE FUCKING TIME FOR THIS. I have things to do, a daughter to raise. I had fucking PLANS.


* * *

We are friends of Torch and we want to help her and her daughter with the healing process and help her get on with those plans. The assault happened just two days after moving to a new town. There have been costs incurred by this assault. Some monetary, many not. She would like therapy for herself and her daughter to deal with the impact of this on her life. And there will be other costs too. So her friends have started this fundraising campaign for her.

Please support Torch’s healing by donating and/or spreading the word. Thank you.
