  •  My own rape did not leave (11+ / 0-)

    me with much PTSD. Enough that all this up my vagina legislation has incited a full boil that results in letters to legislators, and talking openly with both men and women who are unaware of what's going on.

    I attribute most of my lack of trauma with the rape to having been on birth control pills at the time. As I bathed in the Ocean to wash the filth off me, I remember being somewhat comforted by the fact that at least I'd not have to deal with a rapist's child. What was as bad as the actual rape was the mental rape that I had to undergo when I attempted to report the rape. I knew the guys name, his location, his destination and a good description of his truck.  He was a long haul trucker with his name plastered all over the cab. I was made to feel like a slut. Probably asking for it. They would not even take a report.

    There are more of us than we will ever know. I pray for healing for us all, those who are able to speak about it, and those who are not.

    Thank you for your diary. Be well.
