This Parents’ Reaction To Their Daughter’s Rape Is Really Heartbreaking


It is heartbreaking when the people you expect to be supportive during hard times are unsympathetic.

A twitter user, @ Zarbznguni, is heartbroken by her parents reaction to the news of her, being raped. Instead of being compassionate to her plight, her parents are giving her a cold shoulder.

In a series of tweet, she revealed that her parents are blaming her for being raped.

According to her mum, she got raped because she is too friendly with men.

She tweeted,

Mom said the reason why I was raped is because I’m too friendly with men

This was literally running through my head the whole time while I was smoking with a male friend of mine just now…

So what do I do now? Stay away from men completely? Mind you she’ll expect me to marry a man soon

It’s so stressful. My parents aren’t even talking to me right now because of this. It’s funny because mom actually said I’m lying about it

On some days in some moments I can take my parents not having my back. But right now I’m breaking

I’m the one that was violated but my parents are making me tip toe around them and their feelings when it comes to this matter

My comfort lies in the fact that there’s no tear that God does not see. He will make a way
