Rape

I’m 15 years old and I was raped about 4 months ago. He was 17 years old and I was still 15. I met him while I was in 9th grade now I’m in 10th. I remember getting a snapchat from him saying he had nothing to do on Monday and I told him we could go out to eat at like Taco Bell or something, so he said okay. Well when it was Monday, he texted me in the morning and told me to get ready so I did. He picked me up and we drove straight past Taco Bell because he said he left his wallet at home so we went to his house. He lives out in the middle of nowhere and he was driving on this long dirt road. He slammed on the breaks and I looked around and asked what we were doing here and he asked me if I’ve… Continue reading »

It Can Happen To Anyone

I don’t remember the exact age it started, i was about 7 or 8 years old and my assaulter is my older brother. It happened several times so ill just give a brief story. It happened every year up until i was about 16 years old. He threatened me saying he would light my house on fire while my entire family was inside while we were asleep. I was so scared and ashamed, i didn’t say anything to anyone. He never physically raped me by actually inserting his penis inside me, that never happened. He only did other things. He would touch my breasts, my butt and my “lady part”. Either rubbing or just poking. This happened several times each year and each year it progressed. One time I remember him trying to penetrate me with his finger and every time he tried it would hurt and i would try to scramble backwards. He would… Continue reading »

My Cousin

I am currently 15 but will turn 16 this month. So this took place when I was about 9 years old and my cousin was around 15. Me and my brother shared the same room at the time and he was around 7 or 8 so my brother would hang out with my cousin and play games. Well we had stayed up and my brother was half asleep and I was in my princess night gown when my cousin asked me if I wanted to play a game. Of course since I was a kid I said yes. So the game was that I had to guess the word he was thinking while I was on top of him. If I guessed the word wrong, he would put his hand further down my underwear. And well I lost. And he put his finger inside me and proceeded to do so. The next time, we were… Continue reading »

I Am Brave!

I am a rape survivor! My story started when i was 15 I was walking home from school when i felt someone grab and yank me back then i passed out, then i came to and i was on someones shoulder and had a blindfold on, i started to scream and struggle. He just laughed and hit my bottom. Then i passed out again and woke up in a dark room and tied up in a bed then i saw his shadow cover the whole door… i was so scared my little body can’t handle this, he came over to the bed, untied me and told to take my shirt off in a aggressive tone. I told him no. he said ” do it or i’ll cut you” so when i was taking it off i threw it on his head and tried to escape… he threw me down with his hand on my chest… Continue reading »

Raped and Almost Raped and Harassed

I was raped a week before I was almost raped by my neighbor. I was inebriated and hurt physically. My neighbor who sexually assaulted me is harassing me. It would have been rape had I not had the presence of mind I had. I reported it to the police but they did nothing. Since the neighbor slams doors a lot and twice when I’ve been to the toilet I’ve heard him outside the back making sexual comments. My weight has ballooned and I feel like I’m going crazy. I cry sometimes but mostly drink and struggle with my appetite. I’m almost a hermit. I try and then I guess it keeps getting to me. I get stared at around the small town I live in. I’ve been out with my dog a few weeks ago and a woman was shouting and there were three men staring and two gangs. The neighbor has also banged hard… Continue reading »

My Story

My story began late June… I was sitting in my room by myself reading a book as usual since I didn’t have any friends left in the town i lived in. At age 17 most high-school girls are surrounded by friends but I kept my distance on people and who I could trust. That day I was invited out to hang with my brother and one of his friends, and yes I knew him and I heard stories about him too. Yea I knew he was a bad person but I really believed he had changed. That night I stayed late at his friends house and there were other guys there too everyone was doing drugs so he took me into another room and put the TV on. After a few minutes he started to touch me and I just sat there because I had never felt another boys touch in my entire life. I… Continue reading »

Stormy Night

My story is not like the other stories… I lived on a military base with my family. I was always a Tom-boy kinda girl. I liked sports,hanging out with everyone and just living my 13 year old life.There was this guy named nick that lived next door to me. I never thought that this 17 year old was looking for more then a friend . At this age, I already had developed and just didn’t know it. This boy had a wandering eye …I kept hearing that he was interested the the girl next door to us….I just thought he was a good friend to play catch with. The first time he touched my breast was at his house ,he just wouldn’t stop staring,it was just creepy! I knew that I needed to stay away from him..if that was his mind set. He knew that I didn’t want to hang out with him after that…. Continue reading »

Black and Blue

My story is a little different than the ones Ive read. And for a long time I didn’t see it as rape because of what I was reading. I now realize that I was raped an I need to go forward. The first step is to share my story. I was very irresponsible in my first semester of college. I was 18 I attended a community college so the university life was unfamiliar to me. A friend of mine was in a frat so I was invited to many of their events (because I am a girl and they needed more at their events) I didn’t know this was why I was invited at first. I went a few times and knew everyone by name. I remember drinking and taking shots asking a trusted friend if he would take care of me because he only had two beers ( he only drank Corona and there… Continue reading »
