    It really hits me when Devika said " I felt constant pressure to have to prove my existence." I'm not a survival of sexual assault, but I was once in an emotionally abusive relationship. I was 16 and in short after the breakup, I worked on regaining everything, confidence, self-esteem, studies etc. But ppl would just look at me differently, bcuz I chose to have a relationship during my studies and I failed it. But when they found out I was in a relationship, they didnt try to get me out of one bcuz of the fact that I was abused, but because they felt that a student shouldn't be in relationship. And through that process, with constant pressure from all parties, I basically had my worst time with full denial and suicide ideations. Until now, I've have tried my best to move on, I have worked so hard facing daily challenges in my life, and I finally found someone that would respect me, and care for me as me myself, with uncountable empathy, yet they did not trust me. Becuz my performance was not as good as before, I'm not as confident and cheerful as before, and I'm not financially independent. Even if I try to convince myself logically, I would feel as if I'm owing them something that I need to prove them I'm worthwhile to have someone dears to me only when I'm successful. Academically or others. I understand that they have this behavior bcuz they are worried. But, when they couldn't acknowledge my feelings, then what else can I do?

    I can relate where we just want to forget and assume that it never happened cause we didnt want that happen cause we just had no control to stop the person :) its so traumatizing. You couldnt tell to everyone cause youre just afraid of being blamed cause you put yourself in that situation. Ive been in this situation for the past few years and it sucks. Particularly when the one who sexually assaulted you was your own ex bf. People will think that we made up stories. Ive been blaming my self cause i put myself in that situation and im so depressed right now cause once I opened up to that one person that I expected would understand, but he just told me "i have no responsibility to help you. I cant help you with your problem" . Im so upset and depressed

    My lecturer abused me and demanded that I sleep with him or I'll have to "face consequences" in class. I was fine to face whatever consequences they might be; yet he came to the dorm and raped me one evening. He is now the Dean in the School of Psychology and Centre for Human Rights in a prestigious university. This is the sick world we live in.

    I related sm to their stories, specially Devika’s. I have not shared this with anyone ever. I was around 6 years old when I was raped by a family friend/cousin. His family migrated out of the country after few years and I have never seen him since. Just thinking about him and people who are associated with him makes me feel sick. I didn’t know what he was doing to me, I was freaking 6. I remember him saying that his cousins suggested it to him who were alr grown ups. I felt what he was doing is wrong bc why would he want to hide but I was groomed and manipulated, I was just a kid and I was scared. I didn’t even know what he was doing. As I grew older, I realised that I was sexually assaulted and I was raped. I have never talked about this with anyone and it has been buried in side my brain for so so long that when I think about it sometimes or when I see things that remind me of him like when I see his family, it makes me doubt myself bc the memories are very light like a dream, I always wanted to not think about it and I have never shared about it, but the memories are there. It has affected my life so much but I just have to keep it within me bc of the way the society is. It is easier for me to support people who raise their voice against sexual assaults or for those survivors but I still can’t share my story openly. Even though anonymously, it feels good that I’ve finally shared my story. But personally, it’s sadly smth that I will probably take to my grave.

    I experienced sexual attack, it was just one time and I told my mom and grandmother a few hours later. He was my step grand father, of my dad's family and I've always thought that it wasn't that big deal. Like I said it was once once and it was just touching. But every family member of my father, my aunts, auncles, cousins, his wife and even my dad didn't believed what I said. I wa sa liar, and since that day that i haven't seen them. I was eleven, and I felt so bethayed. Everyone just turn their backs on me. Then my cousin said it happend to her too, and her case was worse because it was her step dad, and even tried to kill herself. I felt like my case, my feelings wasn't that inportant. Now I'm seventeen and I have the support of my mom's family, my true family, but I don't like being touched, -I've never got a love partner because the thought of being hurt again makes me wanna run away. I really wish to be better.

    As someone who was sexually assaulted, I can say, with a hand on my heart, I felt enlightened. All of these people, bless their hearts, they genuinely opened my eyes about a lot of things, broadened my horizons in a way. They all spoke of topics and things that I have never heard anyone talk about. Important things that have damaged me because of an understanding I, myself had to form. But now I know a lot of things people generalize about rape are absolutely false! So thank you! I needed that!

    When I was 11, the male coach would watch the girls get dressed. I would usually go into a toilet stall and change before he entered the changing room, but one day, as I was heading to the stalls, he grabbed my arm and told me I had to get undressed in front of him. I refused and fought back. Luckily there were about 14 other girls in the changing room, so he couldn't do anything to me. But I wonder what he would have done to me if we were the only people there. Since I was very young my mother would talk to me about sex, consent and sexual assault. It's because of that, that I knew what he was doing was wrong. My parents were LIVID when I told them what was happening. My mother reported, but the school did nothing, they even went so far as to say that I was lying about it. That the coach would never do that.

    The guy called it ‘sheathing’. I’ve also heard ‘stealthing’. The fact that people don’t understand is that that is rape. He did not consent to have sex without a condom. And the rapist must have made him think that he was going to use a condom.

    *I'll try to share my story here* : I first got raped by my biological father when I was 4. That continued for 7 months until the neighbors called the police because they saw belt marks on my body. I was sent to the orphanage. Then three 20 ish men adopted me and all the things continued for a year until I was back at the orphanage. Then I was adopted by a couple who physically abused me for 2-3 months then again I was back at the orphanage. I am still suffering from PTSD after the first encounter 5 years ago. These survivors inspired me. Thanks a lot. I look up to the lady. She's stunning! You all are so brave! Respect!

    The first question was actually needed... there’s so many people that DONT understand the concept of consent and it’s absolutely idiotic of them. The way they answered the question made me hope that other people watching this wake up and realize what “wanting it” actually means. No is no and many people need to realize that. I hope that others see this question and the way the people answer it as a way to realize how messed up “you were asking for it” means.

    You know there was even no sex education in our education system, we have to deal with knowledge about periods and pregnancy, and maturity alone ourselves. We might get smacked if we ask our parents. I was molested a lot of times but the replies I got from the older women around me were "It's part of being a female", "You have the things to seduce men, so take it easy when some man wants it from you". Well, luckily I escaped that environment several years ago and fled to another country, even though I still got molested several times, but I learned how to protect myself. The only thing is that I'm traumatized of men, and now I'm only dating girls.

    When watching this video, I got my trauma triggered when I was watching it and I imagined myself answering these questions as if I were there and I was crying so much and thinking about it. Because of how strong these people were from sharing there story and it was hard that we, as survivors had to suffer because of it, but it’s the way that we see it. I was in 6th grade and sometimes in middle school too and it’s complicated. I didn’t bother to report it because I was young and confused and also scared. Then like in 2019 when I was 17 turning 18 I blamed myself because I didn’t report it because it was so many years ago that I didn’t think anyone would believe me or even my own family I was scared to tell them until 8th grade freshman year. I was angry so many times at myself and at my assaulter because he was attractive and he got away from it. I couldn’t cope with it later on until I had sex and toxic sex with my ex multiple times to cope myself, and in 2016 I was self harming and suicidal because I was groomed when I was younger , into child stuff and older men. Even until high school or today, because I wanted to find validation or something that to feel love or any feeling. I have so much to say but it’s so hard to write it all down. Its a lot and I want other survivors to know that they are strong whether to report or not report and get through it. They can still see that life is awful but it’s also beautiful too in their eyes and to those survivors who couldn’t handle the suffering and decided to say goodbye to the pain that they are also brave, and finally be the wind. They are seen by survivors even though they can’t see it anymore, they are legacy that we have to prove to survivors that we can get through this and help others who suffered too, won’t be alone

    Some preachers say people want to commit suicide because of their own sins, these cases definitely have proven otherwise. There might be some cases but much more cases because of outside causes. Speak out victims. Right, not everyone responds in the same way including other trauma cases beside being sexually abused. 2. Why can't they immediately complained? You have to first digest what has been taken placed. 3. Dealing with confusion in the aftermath shocking feelings. 4. You became numb and your mind was just trying to cope with what has been going on and your feelings at that time. 5.You do not know what to do especially you are not in a familiar place and you are alone and no one is on your side. It is a terrifying experience plus some people are thinking they are doing the right thing. All fingers are pointing at you.l

    Yes, it matters because male and male intercourse can also lead to sexualy transmitted diseases such as HIV. Wearing a condom is not solely to avoid pregnancy but to avoid STDs as well.

    The word "no" and "don't do it" was said for a reason. For those people who said that these people and other people who faced sexual violence are what they are asking for and therefore blaming them. STOP. *JUST STOP* Rape and sexual assault is not funny and it is not something you should blame on the victim. My friend, age 14, was raped by his father when he was 6. His friends were blaming on him because he "moaned". No, he was shouting and screaming for his father to stop. My other 'friend', age 16. He raped a girl which was close to me. The girl told me and i confronted to him. He told me: "She was asking for it." "She was having pleasure, clearly she was liking it." A whole fight happened when it was breaktime. Two teachers had to restrain me. I was shouting, crying and insulting him. I was suspended from school and the 'friend' was expelled. As a person who is a close friend to the victims that is displayed in this comment, i just want to say: Don't ever, EVER, blame the sexual assault case on the victim who was assaulted, this taboo statement is not ok, you are literally bringing down someone. They might get diagnosed of depression and PTSD. So please, just stop.

    This video literally made me cry. I'm one of those people who got sexually molested so many times and now I'm at some point where I feel like I lost my own self.

    "No I wasn't...because I was 7." I...no this is NEVER normal. That's disgusting & NEVER allowed. To anyone from a child to a grown up.

    She meant it as "how can you tell me I was asking for it when I was literally a child who doesn't know what "it" is?"

    the fact that there are people out there that blame the victim, just proves that this world is so bent backwards

    usually, the monsters who rape or murder are those close to the family's victim,, fact.

    Everyone is so articulate - it's clear they have thought deeply about this issues. I'm glad that there is a male speaker - it's courageous for him to speak out and clearly state when his boundary was crossed and what started out consensual became assault.

    i needed this video. it’s 5 am and i’m struggling with validity. i was assaulted by my boyfriend at the time at a party. we were both cross faded - pot and alcohol - and he forced himself on me. i was inebriated beyond the point of talking, let alone moving. i was lucky enough to eventually get him off before he penetrated but i’m still dealing with it almost exactly two years later. i have been struggling to feel as if anything was wrong. he tried to convince me it wasn’t.

    I like how there were males in this video as well. People talking about males getting sexually assaulted needs to be normalized. So people can see that males too, get sexually assaulted in any way, shape, or form. I also give an applause to the males and females as well to even have to rethink about what happened to them.

    this video just makes me feel that i’m not the only one living through all my life from sexual assault. I was ten years old when it happened. And the perpetrator was my string ensemble conductor. I was a amateur cellist and at first, he always threw me with sarcasm because i wasn’t good in my playing. But eventually, i got better in my music skills and he allowed me to his private lesson. And that was when the assault happened. I was so young back then, I am so confused and shocked and at the same time, i felt so much pain. But I couldn’t respond that I didn’t want it. The assault was never reported and he got away with it. It was truly a really traumatic experience. I always have flashbacks to that incident and never forget how the perpetrator look like.
