  5. I just rewatched this episode and could relate so much to what she said about feeling naive and like she had to do sexual favors for guys so they’d like her more. I used to do (and unfortunately still do) the same thing. I’m from Utah also and know the pressure that comes from being raised in a Mormon community. You’re either in our your out. It is quite common for victims of sexual abuse like Jill to be blamed or not taken seriously, which was evident by the fact the judge gave her ex BF a slap on the wrist. You’re taught to dress modestly so guys don’t have sexual thoughts, and if they do you must’ve provoked it somehow. It’s messed up and no one should have to go through the pain and judgement she did (I know it first hand being raped and blamed for it). I wonder how she is doing today. What happened to me still effects me, in some ways the aftermath and how horribly people treated me hurts worse than rape itself. It’s been 7 years and I’m not “over it.” I wonder if she managed to work through her problems somehow. I hope she’s doing ok!

  7. Her episode was really powerful. Especially at the end when her mom said “I love you.”

  8. Anyone else think it’s fucked up that for this episode — in which a young woman struggles to cope with sexual trauma and the pain of being sexually objectified — the official synopsis refers to her first as a “a beautiful woman with a Victoria’s Secret body?” Because I think that’s fucking disgraceful.
