You wrote exactly the right amount...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

It wasn't long at all. I'm really glad it helped you to write it out. But don't stop there. Consider talking to a counsellor in order to help you through the trust issues you still carry as residual from not being helped as a little girl. You deserve that kind of help. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

why?
by: shayla

I did the same thing and when I finally came out to my mom and told her about two of the times I was raped and one time a guy had tried forcing me to have sex with him which was not even a month ago. I was 18 and six months pregnant and he kept kissing my stomach saying it was ok he loved me when I have no idea who he is. My mom said I couldnt have been raped because I didnt act like a rape victim. I wasnt scared to be around guys or anything just after the first time I became really permiscuous, I didnt think I was good enough for someone to want to be with me I let anyone do whatever to me I would just lay there. It took awhile after I got pregnant before I finally decided I had enough an I deserved to be with someone. I never reported any of the times I was raped, molested, and forced to do things because I gave it to them. The last time it happend was the first time I was actually not going to let it happen again and fought back. Even the times where guys have laced my drink and taken advantage of me while I was passed out. It was still my fault because I put myself in that position asked for it. But no more.

From Darlene: Shayla, I cannot be strong enough in saying you did NOT ask for it! It is NEVER EVER EVER the victim's fault. Please get that out of your mind. You can do things to help protect yourself, but don't you ever blame yourself for someone else's vile actions against you.

To this day, I can't be around a man who has alcohol on his breath as the memories of that night in the park come flying back to me. I just get so scared. I'm so glad my husband only got drunk once in our marriage and hasn't drank again since.

Drugs are no excuse
by: BMW Princess

Drugs are no excuse. That guy had somthing very wrong in his head. And even if you have a crush on someone you can't force them into sex. It's still rape even if you have a crush on the person.
