Another Topic/thread For 'sexual Assault: Different Types'
Posted 27 July 2011 - 03:51 PM
Is it possible to have a thread on there for SA that included/involved violence?
Talking to some members on here makes me feel like I'm in the minority of those who got hurt physically as part of the SA...
And sometimes I feel like I'm also one of the minority who tried to fight back or resist physically and got hurt because of it...
While all rapes are horrible and damaging, not all included physical violence. I would like for there to be a place where I don't feel so alone or the odd one out...
Maybe I am just being silly... But lately I keep running into more and more members where the question of, 'was it rape?' is getting harder and harder to answer.
I never had a doubt that I was attacked and raped, neither did my attacker. I had the marks and bruises on my skin and the threats of more pain he promised me if I didn't start to cooperate. I KNOW it was rape. It was violent.
Can there be a place for those of us who were SA with/including physical violence?
