People say hurtful things and that doesn’t change when you come forward about an assault. The excessive intrusive questions, the assumptions that they know how and why, the further infringing of your personal rights by then feeling entitled to know every little detail, etc may be irritating. But it will happen! May be officials, may be your family and friends. Having a support system makes this process a little less stressful because you have people who are not going to allow you to be verbally attacked further.
If they truly love you, they will not be a part of this twisted rape culture that believes it’s ok to victim blame.
There is nothing you could have done to “ask” to be violated, unless you specifically asked. Remember that!#Rainn #SexualAssault #April #NotAlone #Prevention #Rights #Women #Men #StandStrong #VictimBlaming #TrueFriends #Awareness #WomanReedemed
