Thank you so much for sharing this. You are incredibly brave and you are my s/hero for doing so and had to let you know. I am so sick of being told these things, like what I and others experience is not real rape because it doesn't fit some defined stereotype. (For me I was told - by police - that there's no reason I wouldn't sleep with an ex again so it wasn't rape. Eww!) I applaud every act of bravery and courage where survivors get our voices heard to make people realize that our stories exist and not to believe the stereotypes.
