If you think that men who get accused of rape have to live out the rest of their lives as a pariah you’re fucking delusional.
My friend was raped by the quaterback at her university. She reported it and lost all her friends. The school offered her money to keep quiet about it. She ended up having to transfer schools because the environment was so hostile.
A year later I attended a banquet for the school, and that quaterback was the guest of honor. I refused to stand and applaud him when he took the stage to give a speech. I was the only one. When everyone sat back down, I loudly said “____ _____ is a rapist.”
Everyone glared at me. One guy sitting at our table, practically foaming at the mouth, spat, “____ ____ NEVER RAPED ANYONE.”
This rapist now plays for a NFL team.
Someone very near and dear to me was raped by a friend of hers and pressed charges.
Nothing. He continues to go about his life and she has PTSD and was blamed for it.
I actually only know one person who was actually able to put her rapist behind bars. And I know a ton of people who have been raped.
You can be a rapist and people will still love you.
Report a rape, and be prepared to have your life turned to shit.
