Abuse & Assault
I had sex with a girl a week ago. She didn't say anything about contraceptives. After we had sex she said she wasn't on birth control. I asked her why she naver said anything? Anyhow I heard of a guy a few years ago who had the same problem. He took a bottle full of coke and turned her bottom up and poured the bottle into her vagina. I told her about this. She was willing to try it....
"They were inseparable since they were born up until age 15... Five years ago. He told me about it, and I thought it was adorable; a cute story. I figured, however, that it was over." The very recent death of her boyfriend's ex makes a user question the boundaries of support in a relationship, as well as starts a discussion on the timeline and types of love.
An active user poses this question to everyone: Does anyone else feel affected by a friend or family members alcoholism/excessive drinking whatever you want to call it? Maybe we could all talk?
A 13 year-old user talks about her problem with cutting-- she's already been hospitalized once and really wants to stop. She even has the support of her best friend, but just can't seem to figure out how. What alternatives do you recommend?
A concerned user wants to help get her boyfriend's preteen half-sister out of an abusive household. The rape is over, but the 12 year-old must share a roof with her rapist and sworn to secrecy by the family– who knew everything that was going on yet did nothing. This is when speaking up and stepping in is exactly the right thing to do.
A user asks some hard questions after being raped at a party: "Is it because I'm easy? Is this my karmic payback? Is it because I drank? Is it because I dressed provocatively? Did I deserve it?" That's a no all around; it's not your fault in any way, and you – no one – deserves it.
