My RA insisted on taking me to the hospital.
I refused a rape exam, I knew from the beginning I would never prosecute it.
She also told me she was concerned about "this person being on campus with other people".
A few days later she asked me if I was just going to "let him get away with this".
I've heard a theory, no one ever regrets reporting a rape, I honestly think I would have.
There was no evidence, no bruises, no injuries, no witnesses. They could prove I had sex with my boyfriend and I was crying in the common room of my dorm afterwards, you can't convict someone on that.
I stayed in the relationship, I stayed quiet. Who knows what the fall out on small college campus would be if I had tried to leave him or if I had told.
