Don’t Want to be A Statistic

Constantly young women fall victim to statistics. Whether it’s being in an abusive relationship, getting pregnant, or being used for sex they all have one thing in common-they’re being counted. No one likes to be in the 90% of unmarried teens that have had sex already or the 50% of women that never report an incident of abuse with a spouse. A technique used to victimize these young women is the deadly “smooth talk”. So many of the innocent fall for the soft spoken words that are meant to ease their minds and manipulate them. Sometimes it may even seem inescapable. The reality of it all is that in some way we are all statistics and we just have to try our best and be the *good* statistics.
