Invalidation. Words Can Hurt!
tristen19 replied to Vera's topic in Public: Pretty Good Year"why didn't you just say no?" ( I had explicitly said I would not have sex under those circumstances and he knew) and "he's a guy" ?!!?!?!?! along with being told I'm naive, too trusting... which I would have to agree, but it still sucks to hear coming from a counsellor you talked to for only a few minutes, besides it shouldn't be an invitation for rape. He knew what he was doing, and he was the one who committed the WRONG. Amazingly though, the most help I've received was not through counselling but was from my friend and my sister, who both knew exactly what to say: It wasn't your fault
