  1. It's not your fault. The world should be a better place and we should be able to expect to be safe when we want to hang out with people we like. It's not fair and there's no way you could have known. I have no idea we feel like these things are our fault. Maybe our ridiculous culture of victim blaming gets stuck in our heads from a young age.
  2. Leading someone on, being a "tease", wearing provocative clothing, and agreeing to separate sexual acts -does not- entitle anyone to your body in any way besides what you actively consent to.

  5. I hope you find yourself here, and maybe even patch up those pieces a little bit. I believe in you because you've already taken the first steps. Welcome. <3

  8. Oh my, I'm know I'm always afraid I'll accidentally let something slip when I'm sleeping. I hope everything went alright with those three people?
  9. Thank you Dastigerlily, I'm exceedingly happy that you found something to connect with in my post. I wish you all the luck in the world on these forums and I hope we both find a comfortable in the outside world as well, haha. And thank you, Janepp, as well. Take care!
  10. Thank you euca, it's good to know someone going through similar things as me has found this place to be so helpful. Take care as well.
  11. Thank you, I'm glad to know that what I'm starting on this site now has helped someone else. Also, you're officially the first person to respond warmly and kindly to me even referencing this. I don't even know you, but it made me sort of emotional haha. So thank you for that, your good advice, and your offers of assistance.
  12. So, I'm generally a closed off person. Even with my best friends and family, I keep an arms length from them when it comes to honesty about moods and intimacy and anything remotely related to..you know. You know? The tipping point was a few days ago when I found myself outwardly laughing (inwardly cringing and outraged) at my best friend's rape joke, just because I felt like fitting in with everyone else who was laughing.
