I would be supportive of my friend and encourage her/him to report it to the police I wouldn't let the other person know I knew so they would be unsuspecting that the raped person had the guts to tell anyone.

a big long loving hug. Then tell her/him to report it. Also, seek counseling.

I'd prolly be pissed. But I'd try to be supportive of them. I'd encourage them to call the cops, and ask them if they needed someone to talk to. If they felt they needed a counselor, I'd help them find one. Basically, just be there for them, TS.

Cuz it wouldn't be right to go in and beat the hell out of the rapists (as much as they might deserve it), since it wouldn't actually help anything. So, all you can do is be there for your friend.

for all of you assuming, no, my good friend did not get raped by someone I knew; I got raped by someone I know. but thanks for the advice anyway.

Well, you did say your friend in the OP.

Ah.



But yeah I would definitely get some support and help on this matter.

Sensible rational answer given while calm and discussing a hypothetical situation?

comfort them and encourage them to get in touch with the police.

What would actually happen if it was a close friend who I would trust 100% never to lie about this type of thing?

I dunno, but chances are it would involve some sort of violence.

Hypothetical question, that explanation wasn't meant to be charged in any way. This was months ago. I'm just trying to see people's gut reactions to the situation without being in the context. Most are of humor it seems.

My ex did the same. Cheated on me and then acted like I'd given her sister a facial. Women are retarded.

dang.. your friends should support you TS.. if any of them try to 'defend' the rapist in any way, they deserve nothing more than a firm kick to the bottom.

I would meet him and hear his side of why he did it. Then I would take a hammer right to his balls.

Not very logical or rational, I know, but the prosecution rate of rapists is so low it would probably just be an ego-rub for him if the authorities were involved.

Pretty much this. I like to think of myself as being able to sort out situations in the calmest, rational way.

But really, I know I'd just flip a shit and knockfuck out of them. And then probably realise I was wrong, and it was all just blown out of proportion.


Also depends, if someone I knew was my friend or just someone...I knew

No offense intended. It's the pit, if you post a serious thread in here it's your fault for expecting more.

OT: I think you need help from personal friends rather than strangers on the internet.

That's the internet and offensive humour for you. Some people can find humour in most anything if they're not personally affected or emotionally engaged with it.
Take for example racist jokes, dead baby jokes, sexist jokes... etc etc. I'm not saying that's wrong, just with most jokes out there it can be offensive to someone, it's a matter of sensitivity. I imagine if you had started the thread saying it was you nobody would make jokes out of sensitivity to your directly being affected by the subject.

Rape charges can be difficult with people you know or are close to. With a violent rape by a stranger, it is pretty straightforward, with a friend or someone you know what might be judged as rape might be judged as a mistake by someone else, or simply being slightly pressuring. It's not always open-shut cases. However if the victim feels they are indeed a victim it is something that needs to be taken seriously.

Hi. Did any of my previous posts seem offended? Did they seem like they were seeking help? Were they angry? Did they seem spiteful or even slightly irked by the humor? Did I not state that this was a hypothetical question? Have you seen any posts even slightly reacting poorly to the humor? Have I bashed anyone? Have I actively seeked pity?

No. I didn't do any of those things. I simply stated the fact that the situation in the OP is not my situation. If that is too awkward for you to handle, don't post your reaction.

However, because you did react the way you did, fuck you. Seriously, fuck you and don't ever tell someone how to handle a situation like this. Kindly fuck off.

Hypothetically, since I'm calm and all, call the police and offer whatever I can to the friend.

In the moment I'd probably flip shit and beat the living fuck out of the guy.

Well to be honest I would be skeptical at first, depending on circumstances of course. I know of a lot of local cases where someone will call say they were assaulted, either when someone they don't want to know finds out they had sex or just makes up the story completely without the two persons having any sexual contact. Just a couple weeks ago the trial finished for a case where a woman tried to steal her boyfriends wallet and car, and when he wouldn't let her, she called the police and said he had confined and raped her in his house. The woman eventually said she made the whole thing up on the fourth day of trial, but it still slandered the reputation of the accused.

So I think I would try to assess myself whether or not it was rape from what I hear from both parties, and judge from there along with any court proceedings that might follow.

Are you serious? I hope the pit isn't the only place you're getting help from on this matter.

Of course not. This genuinely is a hypothetical thread.
