Today I was humiliated. Publicly. It happened at an anti-trafficking event where I was presenting to over 100 law enforcement and I'd just finished a solid, engaging presentation that acknowledged the fact that I was survivor but that didn't go into details about my 'story', concentrating instead on the issue itself, how far we've come and how far we still need to go.
