Being the person who was essentially believed to be the abuser, I did not take this personally at all. I looked at it with their perspective and in all honesty I think it was a legitimate concern.
The relationship Redpepper, her husband and me have is completely natural to us but completely unnatural to societal norms. What were they to think?
The news fills us with fear of this type and therefore I was not hurt by the question or accusation.
I think their questions were all valid but the manner in which they delivered them was completely inappropriate. They attacked Redpepper without remembering us all together over the past 9 months.
