Everyday Victim Blaming

challenging institutional disbelief around domestic & sexual violence and abuse

Drunk and in a relationship (content note for rape)

I was in a relationship with a person with substance misuse issues. As a result of his violent and unpredictable behaviour I stopped having sex with him because it hurt and I would feel violated afterwards. One night we went out and we got so mortal I was basically comatose. He anally raped me that night. He said it was my fault for getting so drunk. I didn't pour any of the drinks btw
