People ask why you joined a sorority, but they should really ask why you stayed. I could have walked out that door a long time ago, but the friendships I made, the purpose my sorority gave me, and the happiness it brought was worth it.
We’re told rape is illegal and that bad people commit rape, but that isn’t enough to stop us. Our society breeds the idea that sexual assault is ok. Maybe not that it is ‘ok’, but that it is at least excusable. 1 out 4 women will be sexually assaulted before they graduate college, and only 3 out of 100 accused rapists will ever see jail time (out of the 40 out of 100 rape accounts that will ever even be reported to police).
Basically, in a really unromantic and non-dramatic fashion we both lost our virginities in the heat of the moment one insignificant night. I couldn’t even tell you the date, honestly.
The worst is still to come though. You haven’t thought about the future yet, but now you are.
