thank you so much for sharing your story. It is horrifying and I am sorry to what happened to you. The worst part of your story is the reaction of others, which often try to downplay such an incident.
I admire your strength and courage to share this and I wish more people would do that. We all need to understand, that those assaults are as bad as rape. If your assailant get into your head, it doesn’t matter, which methods he or she used.
I wish you all the best and hope that your scars will heal eventually. As a male who would rather die than taking advantage of a friend I am deeply ashamed of my fellow men and hope to live up to my standards every day. To lead by example.
