I feel taken advantage of, I feel dirty, I would even go so far as to say I feel depressed. I do not feel assaulted. I am afraid that if I try to identify with women who were truly raped I will be mocked, but I also don’t feel like I can identify with women who have only had consensual sex.

It’s good to have a healthy approach to sex. What’s not good is the realization that you live behind a shell labeled “hardass” because that’s the only way you can survive.
