National Sexual Assault Hotline Online

The Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network (RAINN) just launched a new service for victims of sexual abuse - online. The new National Sexual Assault Online Hotline is secure, anonymous, and works sort of like an instant-messenger program. I think it's a great idea, and I hope it helps more victims and their friends to get help and support.

Oh my. I just realized who you are. That's a little bit awkward.

Don't worry, many people know Icarus. She's (in)famous that way. :-)

I'm not sure many people know her in as awkward of a way as I do, haha.

Icarus, if you realize who I am, let's pretend we don't have the association that we have, 'k? :D

Incidentally, I think I may have met you, too, now that I think about it.

Hey, you know what's really awkward? Cryptic comments alluding to personal information about people who take their privacy here pretty seriously, haha.

If you really think this conversation needs continuing perhaps a less public forum would be more appropriate?

fibrofog said...

Point taken, though I must say I had no intention of revealing anyone's personal information here, that's why I left it cryptic. Forget it.
