Dating rape victim forum
If you're not well, you can't hope to help anyone else.
You may also need professional rape support for yourself.
Being a survivor—and the resilience that goes along with it—is such a deep part of who I am.
I knew I needed a partner with an appropriate level of spiritual depth, emotional intelligence, and empathy to join me on my lifelong journey of being a survivor.
Supporting a rape victim can be challenging but it is worth it to know that you are helping someone who has gone through something so unthinkable.When it happened to me I was young, cute and totally disinterested in the "friends" who raped me. A rapist is similar to a bully in the schoolyard picking on smaller kids so he can feel "bigger." It is possible that the friends who raped me did it because they knew I would never sleep with them in a million years willingly. Maybe they wanted to have sex with me but they knew that I wouldn't, and out of anger and resentment decided that they were going to have sex with me with or without my permission.I thought that maybe they had wanted me bad and knew they couldn't have me so they resorted to rape as it was the only way to "get" me. That night, they put something in my drink so they could do it without fear of me remembering or finding out (or so they thought...).Since writing about this publicly, many people, mainly men, have argued with me that rape is an act that men cannot help executing because of their "natural" sexual drives and desires.This misconception is also the reason why victim-blaming excuses often fly without much questioning from others.
