everyday sexism live feed:
They also turn things that I say into sexual phrases and such, and react to things I say with sexual comments.
I don't mind enough to protest, but after a while it gets pretty annoying and makes me uncomfortable.
Nothing I say makes them understand though.
The entire experience scarred me emotionally and left me with suicidal thoughts. What makes it worse is that, when I reached adulthood, I told the (now) man in question what he had done to me, that I had not been consenting, and how that had made me feel, and he told me that it wasn't his fault. Instead, it was just his "hormones" acting, and that if it affected me so much, I should see a counsellor. He thereby refused to accept any responsibility for his actions, and in fact saw nothing wrong with what he had done. Looking back now, I wish I had known that that was actually sexual assault, and that I didn't have to have gone along with it.
