I was raped
I was raped 2 weeks ago. I had joined my colleagues for a braai and had a few drinks. Later that night one of my male colleagues invited two boys which one of them is in grade 12.
By the time they arrived I was already out of it. I had a blackout and woke up the next morning only to find out that both of those boys had slept with me. I was devastated because my female colleague told me that I had led one of them upstairs to my room and asked for it. I later found out that one of my male colleagues had given the condom for the grade 12 learner to use and incouraged him to sleep with me.
I phoned my boyfriend first and told him face to face what had happened. This was two days ago. Today he left me and my heart is broken.
