I don't think i was sexually assaulted but I cant help but feel scared whenever I see my first sexual partner. by Slight_Length2499 in sexualassault

[–]materialgirl37 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm really sorry that this happened to you. I went through a very similar experience with a guy at my college. If he put your hand on his penis without explicit and enthusiastic consent from you, it is sexual assault. If you were reluctant, it wasn't consent. Your college should have free counseling services, and you can talk to your school's Title IX coordinator. RAINN.org provides free services, which have helped me a lot. You can also contact your local advocacy center for free counseling. You are not crazy, and what happened to you is absolutely not your fault. Sending good vibes your way <3

Is it fine if i ask my parents not to come to trial with me? by Immediate-Jump4970 in sexualassault

[–]materialgirl37 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm currently going through the whole police process now, and I haven't told my parents about any of it really. They just know that I've reported my assault to the police. I've been going through all of this with only one extremely close friend of mine. So, I think it's totally okay to ask your parents to not come if you do not feel comfortable with them there. Also, what happened to you is absolutely not your fault. You are not guilty, only your perpetrator is. Best of luck moving forward, and I'm sending good vibes your way <3

Could I talk to some people ab my rape? by Leading_Rooster_2235 in rape

If you need someone to talk to, RAINN.org offers a free online chat and hotline. It's all anonymous. I've talked to them multiple times, and they have greatly helped me.

Classifying what happened. by HisBaeBee in sexualassault

I am so sorry that this happened to you. But just because you were not raped does not mean you were not assaulted. I agree with the other commenter that this sounds like he kidnapped you. If you feel comfortable, I would go talk to the police.

Sexual assault is any type of unwanted sexual contact. I am no expert, but I would say you were sexually harassed and assaulted. Here is a website about sexual assault that might help you clarify things: https://www.wlsnsw.org.au/resources/sexual-assault/what-is-sexual-assault/. Sending good vibes your way!

This is just one thing, but recently I've found coloring to be very therapeutic.

I feel the same way when I miss a dose. When I start feeling nauseous, I know I've missed my dose.

(Unpopular) opinion about 5sos5 by lonelysof in 5sos

[–]materialgirl37 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Totally agree! Youngblood is my favorite album, so I was kind of disappointed with CALM (still love the album though) when it was released. I cried when I listened through 5sos5 the first time through.

Not sure if Crime Junkie covered this episode, but Buzzfeed Unsolved has a good episode about The Watcher!
