#MeToo 1) In my early 20's, a female cousin & I went 2 a small New Years Eve party @ a friends house. I had a drink & took a pill I was offered. (Stupid, I know.) I only weighed about 98 lbs & I became VERY inebriated. A mutual acquaintance showed up & tried 2 get me 2 have sex.
#MeToo 2) I never liked the guy & I let him know I was not interested. He dragged me 2 a bedroom & started undressing me. I kept protesting & saying, "No!" I managed 2 get up, button my shirt & return 2 the party. He followed, picked me up & carried me back 2 the bedroom.
#WhyIDidntReport I don't rememer every detail, but I know I did NOT want to have sex with him. I know I protested & told him "No!" repeatedly. He put my hand in his shorts, on his penis, which was quite large. I remember thinking, "Oh, God. I'm in trouble." Then I passed out.
4) When I came to, I heard the guy offering me to others at the party. I knew I had to get dressed & out of that house. Thankfully, no one took up his offer. I'm not sure I could have stopped them. Because I knew the perpetrator & I let myself get "wasted" I blamed myself.
5) I felt stupid & guilty. It wasn't until women started talking about #DateRape that I understood what happened to me was rape & not my fault. I never told anyone what happened & I don't talk about this incident from over 40 years ago. #WhyIDidntReport #IBelieveSurvivors
