I was Sexually Assaulted by my Rideshare Passenger
                                     My passengers are
always surprised to see me.             I’m almost always
first female driver they’ve had.             We are a rarity, at

The Anal Renaissance

a toddler, MeMark scratched me in the eye.   I had to wear a patch for a week and quite frankly, didn’t give a shit
