WARNING: SEXUAL ASSAULT/HARASSMENT/RAPE

I was with him for 7 years and had a child with him. At first I enjoyed having sex with him but he was and is an alcoholic so it soon became a chore. Countless times I would tell him no. I would tell him that I didn't want to and that I wasn't in the mood. He would proceed as if I hadn't said anything. He would screw me as I would literally sob. Sometimes I tried fighting him off but I never succeeded. Eventually I just gave in. I stayed with him because I was scared to leave. I had sex with him because it was easier to get it over with than to try and fight it. I finally got my son and I away from him. I didn't even know that I was raped until I started seeing a therapist and we started dissecting that relationship. I thought it was just what I had to do as his girlfriend. I haven't seen him in 4 years. I'm in a loving relationship with my best friend and he treats me with nothing but respect. He is also a great example for my son. My ex is alone and in denial. He will probably never accept what he put me through. But that's OK because I have and I have healed. So not only #metoo but #iwin.

WARNING: SEXUAL ASSAULT/HARASSMENT/RAPE

I was 15 when I decided I was ready to have a boyfriend for the first time. Things were complicated at home, so I just wanted someone to help give me a sense of normalcy. I didn’t get that. One day, he was having a party with his friends and he took me to his room while everyone was playing video games. In the middle of having sex I asked him to stop - he pinned me down with his forearm on my chest so I couldn’t move and there was a point where I completely left mentally. That happened over and over again until I felt completely numb and broke things off with him. He then proceeded to tell all my friends that I was insane and a slut #metoo #nomore

WARNING: SEXUAL ASSAULT/HARASSMENT/RAPE

Last year I went to a house party at a friends house on campus. We were drinking a little bit having fun playing card games. Time went by and then we began smoking marijuana, at this point I had blacked out. I had no recollection of anything from this point. When I had woken up from being blacked out there was a man raping me. I had told him no and I had tried to scream but he had told me I couldn’t say no to him and had put his hand over my mouth to prevent me from screaming more. I had a friend come get me and take me back to my dorm. The next day I had a black eye, bruises on my lips, on my chin and cheek and on my legs. I didn’t go to the doctor because my dad works in the hospital and I couldn’t bare him knowing. Eventually I went to the university police department, who are just now concluding the case. With lack of evidence he is free. Intoxication is not a yes, it is rape. And my rapist is free #metoo #nomore1

WARNING: SEXUAL ASSAULT/HARASSMENT/RAPE

When I was about 5, a family member of mine began to get “close” with me. I would sit on his lap and he would rub himself back and forth while i would just sit there, confused. It progressed to touching me, clothed and naked, and when i was 6, he raped me for the first time. This continued until i was 9. He is no longer in my life, and now, 10 years later, I’ve spoken up. Although not originally believed, I’m receiving EMDR therapy and have been diagnosed with depression, anxiety, and PTSD. I even attempted suicide 2 days after my 15th birthday. However, despite the painful, long journey, i must say this. I was powerless before. Then, i grew angry. Now, I’ve come out furious and strong as hell. #metoo #nomore

WARNING: SEXUAL ASSAULT/HARASSMENT/RAPE

When I was 19 it was new years eve and he came back to our hotel drunk. He said we're having sex. He bent me over and penetrated me.. Then he started talking about my ass. He said I'm going to put it in there. I kept saying no and pushing him away but he pushed me down and forced himself into my anus. It was so painful. It felt like it lasted forever. I couldnt stop crying. Once he finished I went to the bathroom and cried. I didnt even know what happened. I didnt even realize I was raped. #metoo #nomore

WARNING: SEXUAL ASSAULT/HARASSMENT/RAPE

When I was 7 (second grade) my parents were gone and on a date. My sister who was 12 at the time was getting ready for bed along with me. Before we went into our rooms she told me to follow her into her room and have a sleep over. She raped me that night and kicked me out right afterwards. To this day we have our awkward moments but haven gotten over the past #metoo #nomore

WARNING: SEXUAL ASSAULT/HARASSMENT/RAPE

I went on an overnight trip to NYC 3 hours away with some new friends. He kept buying me drinks, I thought I was safe with him. I wasn’t. Three times that night. That was four months ago and I saw him for the first time yesterday and broke down at work. He’ll always haunt my nightmares #metoo #nomore

WARNING: SEXUAL ASSAULT/HARASSMENT/RAPE

It was a couple months ago, I began hanging out with my ex bf again because we were friends. We started hanging out a lot. He one night kissed me and things started escalating so I stopped it. Nothing happened after that. But the next weekend we hung out at his house with his friends, I got hella drunk and was blacked out. I woke up with him on top of me hurting me. I told my best friends and they told me it was my stupid mistake that I shouldn't have gotten drunk. I felt guilty for a long time feeling like it was my fault, but I realized that I never asked to be raped and bruised and bled. That it was his fault and not mine. And for the first time I'm actually realizing that because everyone else made it feel like my fault #metoo #nomore

WARNING: SEXUAL ASSAULT/HARASSMENT/RAPE

When I was 6 years old my older sisters (13 at the time) had a friend that was a year or two older than them that would come over and one night me and my best friend were playing in my room and after my sisters fell asleep she came in the room with us and asked us to play truth or dare, we said yes and it turned into her making us touch each other then making him watch as she gave me oral, haven’t been able to treat women right my whole dating life, I’m 20 now #metoo #nomore

WARNING: SEXUAL ASSAULT/HARASSMENT/RAPE

I was sexually assaulted when I was 19 . I was attending a summer music workshop and had become acquainted with a sweet guy about my age. He kissed me on the first night we met and every day after.....the day before the workshop ended I fell and injured my ankle so that I was on crutches. As he was helping me to a private practice room later that day, he followed me inside and shut the door and turned off the light. The next thing I knew he had one hand in my jeans and the other covering my mouth telling me to be quiet “or else he would tell everyone that I was a whore”. When he finished with me, he left me alone in the room and when I saw him later that day he ignored me. That’s the last I saw or heard from him and I’ve blocked him out of my life. Women, you’re not alone. Reach out for help. Share your story. Don’t be afraid. #metoo #nomore

WARNING: SEXUAL ASSAULT/HARASSMENT/RAPE

My ex-boyfriend assaulted me on prom night after I had been drinking. At the time I was living in California and he was living in Oklahoma and I came for his prom out of pity an because I thought I could salvage our relationship. Instead he raped me while I was partially unconscious. It was traumatizing to have my best friend and person I love hurt me so badly. After almost a year another girl came forward and said she was raped by him too. I feel ashamed for not coming forward when I have. It just goes to show the importance of sharing your story so others do not have to face the same cruelty. I feel guilty but I’m not going to shut my mouth ever again. #metoo #nomore

WARNING: SEXUAL ASSAULT/HARASSMENT/RAPE

About a month ago I was sexually assaulted in my 8th period class by someone I considered a friend. He began by touching my thighs and asking for sex. Then he full on groped my left boob twice, grabbed my butt, and even put his hand on my vagina. Before he could do anything else I told my guidance counselor. And a month later they brought him back. I feel entirely hopeless at this point. #metoo #nomore
