14. I was raped by an ex-boyfriend when I was 18

I'm sure that doesn't count as "legitimate" rape to today's Republican party, especially since the guy in question was wealthy, white and conservative, and I wasn't a virgin (though I hadn't had sex with this guy in the 2 months we had been together) and I had had a couple of beers, and I was wearing a sleeveless top, and I'm a progressive feminist.

Luckily, here in Canada, I was offered the morning after pill as a matter of course and an abortion would have been available through our medicare if the pill hadn't worked. Of course I don't know if I was, or would have been, pregnant, but I can certainly tell you that it was rape.

Hugs to my fellow survivors of this type of horror.
