Not Just Another Sexual Assault Statistic!

This heartfelt letter was sent to me from a woman who’d like to remain anonymous. She correctly refers to herself as “Not Just Another Statistic!” 

“I was triggered reading an article and I’m pretty numb.

I don’t know…. all this time I wanted to make myself feel in the wrong, nasty, disgusting because of what happened. And then I watched the Netflix movie, Trust, and found the article about your book.

It happens to more people than I’d known. Some states even have laws against it! I didn’t know rape by fraud even existed…… after three and a half years of self blame and hatred for all that I was, and then I saw it…. my own state, Florida, does not have a law against it. It doesn’t even refer to it as “sexual battery”.... not even “sexual assault!”

The feeling of my “home” downplaying the actual event that turned my life around, and threw me into a downward spiral……. I can’t explain how torn I am.

I really want to team up with a group and try to pass a law in Congress. I know it’s the farthest shot out there, but I know there are females and males out there who have been the victim like I have. And to even have just one state change their laws to include rape by fraud and have it stated as SEXUAL ASSAULT, would be extremely satisfying and worth the effort!”

So why the photo on manatees?

In Florida, fabricating information on the aplication for a Wildlife Card gets you locked up, but fabricating information to undermine a person’s self determination over their reproductive organs is NO BIGGIE?? Florida protects its manatees with deeper concern and integrity that protecting the sexual integrity of its human beings! It’s shameful!

What can you do about it?

If you’re the victim of the heinous crime of rape by fraud, please:
