  •  Thanks. (8+ / 0-)

    I eventually got past it, with therapy.  And at least I was able to dump the guy and never see him again.  I realize that sort of situation is really tough to prove, and I don't have an answer for how to make it better.  I wish I did.  Education is part of it, certainly, and awareness that consent to prior encounters does not give anyone a right to new encounters.  But it seems like we should be able to do more than that, and I just don't know what.

    I’m a feminist because the message is still "don’t get raped" not "don’t rape"

    •  Hi Avilyn, I'm sorry this happened to you. (0+ / 0-)

      (Unfortunately, I also knew this situation.) And so glad you are past it. I don't know of anything to do about it either other than education.
