A friend of mine was raped this summer. It was her then-best male friend. She had slept with him before, even if she happened to have a boyfriend at the time.

She woke up to him raping her one night. When she woke up she asked him what the hell he was doing and reported him. Some time in the near future she’ll get a bunch of money cos he was found guilty in court.

When she told me you could really hear the anger in her voice. I’m pretty sure she blamed herself some, most rape survivors do, but yesterday it was only anger.

I hate that she was raped, but I think her reaction to it was great. She reported him! And not years after it happened, but pretty much right off!
