I’m Collecting Your Rape Stories- Talk To Me

Sexual-AssaultI’m collecting stories of women (and men) who have been raped but never reported it to the police. This is to raise awareness in the public and to stop the accusations that people lie when they do come forward. Please tell me why you didn’t report your rape. I would like to use your name and photo but if you would like to remain anonymous, let me know. You can either leave your story here to encourage others to come forward or private message me* (see how below). Many have already come forward and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Please come forward. We must work together to end this travesty once and for all. Let’s use my very public trial to help all rape victims. This trial will be a national story by the time it is ocampusSA-1 in 5 women_0.pngver. The ramifications for women’s First Amendment rights are staggering. The ramifications for State jurisdiction rights via the internet are staggering. The ramification for defamation lawsuits is staggering. You can help all rape victims who have been silenced through the same terror tactics that are being used on me right now.
Every single article I have ever written is being used against me in order to say that I am a
liar and a crazy person. They are skewing the facts into falsehoods, hand selecting quotes completely out of context & falsely paraphrasing and misrepresenting my political and Christian viewpoint in order to distract from the facts of the case. In other words, they are using standard protocol against me as a rapecampusSA-chart accuser- they are mutilating my character in order to say I lied about the rape. This is because they are terrified of the facts. The facts are 100% on my side & will win this case for me. When people need to distract from the facts, it is because they are terrified liars. I am determined to keep the focus where it belongs.
Nevertheless, most people couldn’t withstand these scurrilous types of attacks upon their character. God has uniquely prepared me for this situation through a life full of disaster. He has helped me to withstand them all  until I have become very strong inside- I am now a junk yard dog- hopefully with a soft heart in there somewhere.150519-sexualassault-quote-editorial
This simply isn’t the worst thing that has happened to me. I have been to the brink of my own death- when you have faced your own demise and wished for it, nothing can frighten you again. When you have already been despised by everyone you know, facing thatBlackBoxTellUs-900x600 situation again is no longer that daunting. I can bear this burden- I can carry this torch to the end. Let me help all you rape victims in this case. Let me tell your stories because I will get some air time. Let us use this situation to help women (and men)
who have been raped and called liars when we come forward. Let us end this continued abuse! Tell me your stories and let me bring them forward. I will not crumple; I will not let you down.  Indeed, I will give a powerful voice to you.
541a49a6b85d7.imageI have learned that every horrible situation can be turned into beauty- in this way, we are made in the Image of God. We can speak life into being. We can speak our future into existence. Let us speak success into existence. Let us speak an end to rape and intimidation into existence. All it takes is an applied force of will from all of us. We literally have this power. I have considered this many times. We are indeed made in the image of God. He spoke and willed everything into existence- we, too, have this power. Let us do this together. Talk to me ~

  1. I was 16 years old when the worst night happened to me. After that night all of my closest friends that have known me 10+ years didn’t believe me. I owe it to myself to finally talk about the horrors of it. Not one of my family members knows about it. I never have talked to anyone in depth about what happened. Its time people are more courageous and talk about their experiences.

    • Jessica, it is very brave of you to come forward. All I can say is report it. It doesn’t matter how many years it’s been. It is a healing process that begins with the report. It isn’t revenge- it is justice. And it will open painful doors for you, for sure, but those doors must be opened because they must heal. Get a Christian counselor to help you heal. And your family must know and be your support system. You will be surprised how much they will care and help you. Those who want to cover it up will have to deal with it too. It isn’t your job to cover it up to make everyone happy. But, until my case is resolved and until the 1st amendment rights of every woman are firmly established, don’t write his name in public as I have done. I would love to have a ton of female company with me in my predicament, but that would be selfish of me. I am being sued for over 2 million for mentioning my rapist by name on my blog. Don’t do this. Just report him to the police. At the minimum, get it on his record. What I have learned is that sexual predators never change their ways. You never know, once the investigation starts, other women might come forward that he hurt.

  2. Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God. – 2 Corinthians 1:3-4.

    I have often wondered why so many adverse and some terrible things have happened to me. The answers come down from the “Father of Lights” My Heavenly Father! Lord God in heaven bless this pursuit to the healing of many by the love of many of your children here on earth…by the Holy Spirit… In Jesus name…
    AMEN

    • Yes, Dana. Thank you for that beautiful verse. I will update my article, “How to Overcome Terrible Adversity”, which I hope you have also read. One of the important steps of overcoming adversity is to help others by using your own painful experience to relate to them. There is great comfort and redemption to be found there. In using our own plight to help others, we can turn something truly evil into something blessed by God. This is how we overcome satan. Thank you for that verse! Susan

  3. Thank you for doing this. I have not experienced this, but I know others who have and as you correctly, stated – breaking the silence is all that is going to rectify these situations. I give thanks for strong people like you. Keep up the good work!

    • Thank you, Southerner. You can help by sending this to your friends who have been raped. I want to know their reasons so that I can write a good paper on the subject. I believe I know why most don’t report their rape but I would like the stories from real people to confirm my ideas.
