This weekend my stepfather threatened to rape me, and when I spoke up about it I was told by my whole family that ‘it was just a thing he said’ and that I ‘had an attitude’ and that ‘he was just angry’. I don’t give a fuck why he said it. I don’t even care if he intended to act on it - I, unlike him, live in a world in which if I don’t take every precaution, being attacked is my own fault. So don’t fault me for taking every precaution.
What the actual fuck?!!
Your entire family needs to be sent to Family Violence class.
Everything about the way they acted is disgusting. How in the hell do they think it’s okay for that rat bastard to say that word, much less talk to you like that?
I hope he gets beaten up and thrown in a ditch, honestly. What a complete fucking asshole!
As completely abhorrent as it is to threaten to rape anyone—threatening to rape your child or stepchild has to be on a whole new level of horrible. And excusing that? I don’t understand this. I really don’t.
OP, please let us know if we can do anything to help you or keep you safe!
