Rebecca's Log 12-5-2019 Sad About Silent Women
Trigger warning. I cry while talking about women who are silent. Today, I released the screenshots between me and David after he caressed the small of the back while I was bending over to get my shoe where he tries to get me to be silent. I'm very sad that so many women out there are walking around in silence over being violated. It is your right and you are strong as fuck to be walking around every day carrying a load like that with you. I just don't want the world to be like this.

David Silverman Touched Me Without Permission
David Silverman touched me on November 2nd, 2019.   Kalisti and I made this recording on November 4th to record every detail while it was fresh in our minds. We decided we would hold it unless we needed it. David Silverman, after this point, tried to silence me. He failed at his attempt. He is still trying to control the narrative, so here is the recording we made with every detail, prior to him trying to silence me and prior to me knowing that he had massive identity issues that he needs to work on.

Rebecca's Log 10-15-2019: On My Abortions and Cutie Lark Finchmun
Podcast only. In the first of many daily logs, Rebecca discuss the lessons she learned from her abortions that came into play in the loss of Cutie Lark Finchmun. Warning: plenty of tears. Rebecca is somewhat cryptic at a few points in this recording and we will be revisiting this topic in a future episode. From Rebecca: "Not stated, but referred to more than once: I wanted to keep the second pregnancy, but the "father" did not. I aborted for the child's sake, not for my own. When I say, "I didn't do it for me", it's because I sacrificed what I wanted for what I believed to be what was in the child's best interests."
