Teenage Victim

I am a 26 year old, female to male transgender, who was raped, I was raped twice when I was younger. Once by my ex boyfriend during my sophomore year of high school and once when I was about 14 years old by a stranger. When I was 14, I used to go through the park that was between my house and school and hung out there a lot during the summer time. While I had seen the guy around, I never held a conversation with him before. I was taking basic spanish classes during middle school so I only understood a few things since he only spoke Spanish. Because of my Autism, I grasped at any attention a person was willing to give because I was more of a loner in a sense. We had went for a bike ride and he took me off one of the main trails to a place where nobody could see in, but we could hear and see out for the most part. Before I really understood what was happening, he had raped me. I was lucky to get away and he was caught a few days later. It had tu rned out that he had attempted to rape an eight and eleven year old girl. He was deemed incompetent and sentenced to the Psychiatric hospital for the remainder of his life span. With my ex boyfriend, my mom and I had just moved back to our hometown after living in another state for six months and he wanted to come over and talk. He was my first boyfriend and we had dated for about a year and I was absolutely enthralled in him, so I thought nothing of it. Because my mom and her ex-boyfriend wasn’t home, I thought it would give us some privacy to talk, but it wasn’t what he had in mind. Instead, he took advantage of that alone time and raped me. I had only ever told a few friends, in which I found out he had done the same to them, but nobody ever reported him. He still wanders free and I have only seen him once or twice since then, and both times I walked away before he ever saw me. To this day, I still struggle at times with my PTSD, but I try my best not to let it get to me. Seeing your movie and knowing that I’m not the only guy who was raped, brought a sense of relief to me to know I am not alone.
