A lot of these responses fall into two categories:
- You’re a coward for not suing.
- I’m a victim of sexual abuse and you’re a man so you don’t know jack about suffering and you probably deserve it because all men are abusers.
So let me just say, I suffer from depression and know how enervating it can be. I should have fought to keep my job, or sued for constructive dismissal, but I just didn’t feel up to it, so I resigned. The key issue for me was not the whys and wherefores, but the reaction you had, which I understand. Be careful out there.
