Is it **** if you don't put up a fight or scream?
But you wanted to say stop.
But you drank...
and you never said no...
"It was your choice", they say so heartlessly.
It was not.
"You never tried to get away", they declare.
Six men will easily overpower one girl.
Is it **** if you obeyed?
You wanted so badly to run but your body didn't move throughout it all,
so stiff you remembered.
"Why didn't you scream then?" Is what they'll say.
I wanted so badly to push them all off me and run away,
to disconnect from my body,
to make the several videos disappear.
I was encouraged so badly to report it,
"It will give you closure",
"People will think you are so strong",
so I did.
But instead of praise I got criticism and disrespect.
I wanted so badly to come out with this ****,
I was told I would be safe,
I was not.
But I reported it, it's my fault they would victim blame.
They would say since they're so successful,
she just wanted attention and money.
They let it slide because after all,
those boys are so young and talented,
why would we want to ruin their lives?
Yet mine is already ruined.
