Carla

This story contains graphic descriptions of molestation. I fight everyday of my life, but here's the messed up part, Brent [crying hard] when you get sober all these feelings are coming back that I'm used to medicating... what do you do? What do you do when you have to deal with this shit...

Betty

I had to give him up for adoption because I had thoughts that shouldn’t be there. In other words, I prefer not to be around little boys. 

BW: So, you were worried about doing to him what had been done to you? Did you voluntarily give him up?

Betty: Yes. I broke the chain. 

Yummy

Yummy: I was eight. I never really told anybody. I do feel like that’s what pushed me in the direction where I’m more sexual, I guess, even though it’s used more for a commodity. 

BW: You never told anybody about what happened when you were eight?

Yummy: No, you are the first person.

Tasha

My next door neighbor got me started using drugs. one day I was locked out of my house from school and he offered me some [crack] because he wanted me to have sex with them. After a couple of tries I finally gave in and done it with him. 

Ariel Part 3 of 3

Right now I’m pregnant with twins. I’m only five months but I’m big as hell. People ride past me because they think I’m getting ready to pop and they don’t stop so some days I stand out there forever. I might just catch one or two dates. Sometimes none at all. 

Ariel Part 2 of 3

What is he gonna have to do, kill me before you do anything to this man? Because he means me absolutely no good. Before I’ll let him take mine, of course I’ll take his life. I’m not trying to go down that road but I’m not going to idly stand by and let him take my life from me. I’ll shoot the shit out of him and keep it moving.

Ariel Part 1 of 3

 I hustle and I work on Fulton Industrial. It’s how I make ends meet. It’s how I provide and how I eat. I don’t do this for a drug habit. I do this because most men that look at me like to have sex with me so I just charge them. I’m not a prostitute. I’m a hustler.

Angela

Actually I’m not homeless. I have a place but… I do drugs. I stay in Norwood and I prostitute over here [downtown] so it’s too far to go home and come right back over here. I might as well go on and stay over here in the downtown area, keep going, get clothes from the shelter.
