So I just told my family that I was sexually assaulted a few months ago and my last boyfriend (3 years ago) use to abuse me. They yelled at me for creating my own drama.
The reason I finally told them was because when I was assulted I was at a gig wearing a low cut top. After it happened I blamed myself. I shouldn’t of worn that, it was my own fault. After about 2 weeks I realised that if a person gets raped it’s not their fault no matter what they were wearing! It’s always the offenders fault. I wasn’t raped but I decided that the assault wasn’t my fault and I should wear that top if I’m comfortable in it!! So I put it on tonight for the first time since it happened and my whole family decided to tell me how “slutty it was” and “there will be boys there”. I proceeded to tell them that I was an adult and could wear what I want and those boys should be able to control themselves. I was still made to wear a jacket. Then that confirmed the self blame. I deserved to get assulted because I wore a low cut top.
