What happened to me at the University Of

I was 18 and excited that I was graduating

From high school and had choose a university that

Was two hours away.

I was trying to escape from myself and

Did not realize that wherever I went there I was.


I had three roommates and lived in a coed dorm

It was October and I decided to stay on campus

For the first time on the weekend

Because I wanted to know what happened on the weekend.


There was a party and everyone was drinking,

It was the first time that I had ever drank,

I was drinking Hawaiian punch and Kentucky Vodka

Just like everyone else

The room started spinning,

I became a social butterfly and was talking to everyone


My roommates where jumping from room to room,

Then I was told that my roommates went down to the

First floor.

I took the elevator down

And knocked on the door


This guy told me to come in,

Next thing I know is that he is undressing me,

He is touching me and I am on my back,

I did not want to have sex with him or his friend

They were raping me


When they got done I got up, got dressed and could not

Find my bra,

They kept my bra as a trophy,

I was sobbing and went upstairs,

A police report was made,

Went to the hospital and the nurse did the rape kit

I was sobbing and was so scared.


The next day, had interview with another police


She looked right at me and told me that I deserved

To me raped by two men

That is was my fault.


I went back to my room and climb

Up on my bunk

I cried myself to sleep and slept

For over 16 hours

Once again I was told by society

That rape is fine and that I meant nothing

That men can rape and that I am

Nothing more than a walking mattress that

Deserved to be raped.
