Rape is a crime of violence, not passion. It is an experience that may leave you haunted by nightmares and flashbacks, feeling numb and in shock. You may hesitate to tell family or friends because you may feel like it’s your fault. It is not your fault. Submitting to your attacker does not make the assault okay. Even if you were drunk, high, or unconscious, sexual assault is a crime.
