Trauma Art: Sarah Ruth Ashcraft

Sarah Ruth Ashcraft shared this picture 4 years ago as part of a Twitter thread discussing the alleged sexual abuse she suffered at the hands of her family and their friends.

When someone produces “trauma art,” they are telling a story that must be taken seriously and investigated by competent, unbiased professionals.

The link to her original Tweet is here.

Here is the thread:

Background tweet—

Tweet redacted due to TOS concerns. Sarah is calling for capital punishment here, but I don’t want her tweet to be misinterpreted, misused, exploited, etc. Original is still on Twitter.
