Amber Tamblyn Shares Scary Sexual Assault Story

Amber Tamblyn bravely shared the story of her sexual assault after Donald Trump‘s offensive comments on his leaked audio about taking advantage of women.

“I need to tell you a story. With the love and support of my husband, I’ve decided to share it publicly,” Amber began on her Instagram account. “A very long time ago I ended a long emotionally and physically abusive relationship with a man I had been with for some time. One night I was at a show with a couple girlfriends in Hollywood, listening to a DJ we all loved. I knew there was a chance my ex could show up, but I felt protected with my girls around me. Without going into all the of the details, I will tell you that my ex did show up, and came up to me in the crowd. He’s a big guy, taller than me. The minute he saw me, he picked me up with one hand by my hair and with his other hand, he grabbed me under my skirt by my v*gina‚Ä” my p*ssy?‚Ä” and lifted me up off the floor, literally, and carried me, like something he owned, like a piece of trash, out of the club. His fingers were practically inside of me, his other hand wrapped tightly around my hair. I screamed and kicked and cried. He carried me this way, suspended by his hands, all the way across the room, pushing past people until he got to the front door.”

“My friends ran after him, trying to stop him. We got to the front door and I thank God his brothers were also there and intervened. In the scuffle he grabbed at my clothes, trying to hold onto me, screaming at me, and inadvertently ripped off my grandmother’s necklace, which I was wearing. The rest of this night is a blur I do not remember. How I got out to the car. How I got away from him that night. I never returned for my necklace either.

That part of my body, which the current Presidential Nominee of the United States Donald Trump recently described as something he’d like to grab a woman by, was bruised from my ex-boyfriend’s violence for at least the next week. I had a hard time wearing jeans. I couldn’t sleep without a pillow between my legs to create space.
To this day I remember that moment. I remember the shame. I am afraid my mom will read this post. I’m even more afraid that my father could ever know this story. That it would break his heart. I couldn’t take that. But you understand, don’t you? I needed to tell a story. Enjoy the debates tonight.”

Our thoughts are with Amber and we thank her for bravely sharing her story.

    That sounds so horrific. No person should have to endure that type of abuse. My heart goes out to all the women and men who have been victims of sexual assault/violence/harassment.

    Real lesson here. No, a bunch of girls can’t protect you from a thug. There are exemptions of course but don’t go betting on it.

    Why are you blocking “vagina”? That is not a dirty word. That is a part of a woman’s body. How dare you turn it into something shameful and disgusting and wrong. How dare you treat it like f*ck or c*nt or d*ck. How dare you take an incredible and powerful story and censor the word vagina. Words have power. How you choose to censor words have power, gives them power, takes power from them. Censoring curses can be an important – and legal – issue. Censoring body parts is absurd and disrespectful.
