Senior Year Sucked!

A week before my senior year of high school, I was raped by my best guy friend and he was sure to tell everybody that I begged him to have sex with me. Within a few days I was dubbed a **** by most of my peers. Even some guys tried to sleep with me. I am lucky; unlike many other bully situations, I was only bullied for a semester of high school, but I can't imagine how I could have survived any more of it. I lost so many friends because of it and only one person ever stood up for me. He was a freshman and while everyone was **** bashing me, he was one the one to stand up to seniors, three times his size and tell them to stop. I am thankful every day of my life for this kid, even though I never really knew him that well.

To be raped by someone you know and like, is not only a criminal act but also a major betrayal. Also, if two people get intimate, neither of them should ever brag about it.

I was a teenager in the 1960s, and we guys did not practice **** shaming. In fact, we rather admired the girls our age who gave their favours away, as long as they used condoms and did not get pregnant.

I hope you can press charges on the scumbag who did that to you.

Been there, done that. feeling bad for ya and good job on the dude who helped out!

The important thing is it's over and you did survive. I think you're a lot stronger than you give yourself credit for.

One never knows who one's true friends are. I have often been let down by people I consider my friends. And very surprised by support from people I thought paid no mind to me whatsoever.<br />

I really don't understand "**** bashing" in this day and age of free for all sex by people under 21. I can see some people avoiding you because of a reputation, however ill-deserved. I can see gossip behind your back. But I cannot see your being bullied to your face because of a sexual act your were allegedly involved in. In my day, if you had told your women friends "he forced himself on me. I didn't want it" your reputation would have survived and HIS name would have been mud.

In the words of Bob Dylan, "The times, they are a-changing." It's really sad to see. I have noticed though that only the girls who rarely sleep around are bashed for being promiscuous. Kids just need to get the eff over it and grow up.

I am moved to read someone of your generation quote Bob Dylan.

I love Bob Dylan!
