You are not alone

One of the results of sexual assault is that terrible feeling of being alone. It is that perception that what happened to you singles you out somehow and makes you different from everyone else. The sad truth is that sexual assault is disturbingly common. You are not alone.

This is not a tale that was submitted to this project. It does however demonstrate the attitude other members of society can take. Many of us have been shunned, ridiculed, or told “it’s not that bad” because of what happened to us. People have these messed up assumptions about what it means to be raped.

The attitude the Dean had towards the whole situation was disgusting
