Li’s complete post on Twitter follows below, translated from Portuguese.
“A few years back, 6-7 years ago, I compared with a guy on Tinder, who I currently knew who [he] was due to the fact that he was a coach for among the most significant teams in LoL, I thought it was incredible to be in that environment and things. We started to [talk], we kept speaking about heading out, I believe I even sent him images and things like that. He consistently firmly insisted that we need to go out to a ‘hotel’ which we didn’t need to do anything, just enjoy a film and talk. I had already made it clear to him that I wouldn’t like to do specific things on the very first date, because I didn’t like it and I just wished to get out and get to know myself much better. He was super-persistent with this story of going to the hotel or something, I even considered it a few times, however I said I was going to feel unpleasant and I never went.
There was a day when we accepted head out and see where we were going after I selected him up, to consume, drink, talk in some bar or whatever. I chose him up at GH [Video gaming House] by automobile and we stopped on a street in Jardins [district in São Paulo] to decide what we were going to do. Then we started to kiss and OUT OF ABSOLUTELY NOTHING he just took [his penis] out. I was alone with a person in the middle of a desert community during the night. He began to require my head to suck him, which I clearly didn’t desire and HE UNDERSTOOD. I attempt not to, however he pressed and held my head on his [penis.] He tells this version of the story to people himself (which I didn’t desire). Only concealing the reality that he forced me. After that, I just left him at your home.
It took me a LONG time to really comprehend what had actually occurred to me that night, a lot so that afterward I still spoke with him (for a little while). Due to the fact that until then I didn’t have that awareness that I have today, I simply didn’t think that it had actually taken place to me and that someone like that person, whom I appreciated even had done something like this. Couple of understood about it, however I told some individuals this year and another lady came to me, who called me at DM [direct message] and said she was abused by the exact same guy. And likewise that she knows others, that we were not the only ones. I’m not going to call anybody since it does not fit me.
I got tired of residing in the shadow of my abuse and seeing my abuser just growing up, communicating with individuals I understand, hanging out with people I like. I even cut people from my life since of that, people who understood what I went through and CHOSE to go for a walk and become buddies with the guy because he resides in a home with a swimming pool. The repercussions I have of this will remain with me my whole life, my weeps, my stress and anxiety attacks, my insomnia, fear of heading out alone with another person when I meet somebody, to name a few things. My intent here with this ‘exposed’ is to alert, and if this prevents something like this from happening to another female by the hand of this man, I will be a little lighter.
