17. If he would have been with a grown man
Edited on Wed Nov-23-11 02:20 AM by Aerows
No one would have said a word, save the homophobes. A grown man can say yes or no. A child can't say yes or no, especially when they aren't emotionally equipped to deal with coercion, pressure and physically, straight up FORCE.

Why would someone expect a child to be able to deal with that, and moreover, why would a man expect it of himself, even if he was a child that endured it? The child that was you and the man that IS you can peacefully coincide.

You just have to get over blaming everyone, including yourself, and start becoming a better person for it. Rage doesn't make you a better person. It makes you bitter.

EDIT: And one other thing. Even if you physically enjoyed something, it doesn't mean that you wanted it. I just means that sometimes our bodies do things our minds and emotions don't really have control over.
