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.

give him his prize let him **** 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!
