107

I was 12 years old when it first happened. My body froze up and I didn't know how to say "no." For years all I felt was shame; as if I had chosen to allow him to violate my body and that what happened was entirely my responsibility.


So much has changed since 2010, then if you were raped and people found out you were the one who was laughed at. I'll always remember the older girls' Facebook comments: "Lol I bet he snapped her legs"; "slutty pre-pubescent girls ftw."
