Assaulted last night - September 3rd 2016, 05:28 PM

I went clubbing last night and while in a club this man (looked in his 40s) put his hand through my play suit and underwear and groped me and I hit him real hard and as I was leaving I was crying and the bouncers found out what happened and got the police involved. They asked if I wanted him locked up overnight but I said no and I just wanted to go home.

They've said if I want to take it further then I can and I should ring today but I'm so scared and I just feel so violated but I want to protect other girls from him. I feel so uncomfortable in my body and so alone if anything

I'm not comfortable discussing this, but I think you should take it further. You said so yourself, you wanna protect other girls from vile freaks like him even though clubs these days aren't the best place for girls but still.
I know I'm not the best at these advices since I'm not comfortable with this subject but seeing how the situation looks, you have a chance to really fight back and send that animal to a prison cell.

Now, I am sure people on this site will support you and make you feel comfortable in your body again.

I'm sorry to hear about this. It's awful that someone did that to you.

Whether or not you move forward with this is completely up to you. You have to be comfortable with the idea of it, and of what could come of it. I think you'd benefit if you took some time to take care of yourself and do healthy things to ease your pain before you make a decision. It might help if you write a list of why you do and don't want to move forward with this so you can organize all your thoughts.

While going forward does have the potential to protect other people, you have to worry about yourself. You're not responsible for protecting other people and you shouldn't have to. That man should have kept his hands to himself in the first place.

Hey Emily,

I'm really sorry that that happened to you, and I agree with Cassado. Whether or not you take things further is really up to you, and the biggest issue is whether or not you're comfortable with it. Yes, it would be good to teach him a lesson so that he doesn't do this to other people, but you're the most important person right now. If you're comfortable with it and will be fine with what pressing charges involves, then by all means, do it. If you're scared of possible backlash, just know that you'll always have the support of friends and family. If you're scared that other people will just accuse you of lying and victim-blame rather than support you, just remember that they didn't have to go through such a violating experience and have no right to pass judgement.

I hope this helped and feel free to PM me if you ever need to talk!

Kyra

Hi Emily,

As said above, it really is up to you. You should do whatever you feel comfortable with. Right now you need to think about yourself and take care of yourself before you make any decisions. If you feel comfortable with it, you might want to talk to an adult you trust about it, but only if you want to. I see this is a difficult decision, so take some time before deciding what to do, as suggested make a list of reasons why or why not you should move forward and see what it comes too.

I'm so sorry this has happened to you, please know that I and everyone here are here to support you through this
