Reporting my brother and his friend.
I have made the decision to file a police report against my brother and his friend. Essentially, my brother recorded his friend forcing himself on/in me and sent/showed his and my friends. It’s been 4 years. My family knew the day after it happened that it had, and told me not to say anything. That “bad things only happen to girls who put themselves in vulnerable positions.” My family is going to hate me. I’m so upset. Angry and sad that my parents didn’t fight for me, and angry that I will be the person ‘digging up old bones’ and I will be the one tearing my family apart. I guess I’m just upset and confused. I feel really alone and scared. But I’m so done with guys feeing like it’s okay to do these things and getting away with it. I don’t care who they are, this isn’t okay.
