I'm posting this for myself because I want to put it down instead of thinking about it. I consider this suffering although not the kind that is usually posted here. I read this in a book.



A rape victim and a victim of a fatal accident were both gone, forever. The difference was that the rape victim still had to go through the motions of being alive.
61% of rapes are not reported to the police. If a rape is reported, there's a 50.8% chance that an arrest will be made. If an arrest is made, there's an 80% chance of prosecution. If there's a prosecution, there's a 58% chance of felony conviction. If there's a felony conviction, there's a 69% chance that the rapist will actually spend time in jail. Of the 39% of rapes that are reported to police, then, there's only a 16.3% chance that the rapist will wind up in prison. If you factor in all the unreported rapes, 94% of rapists walk free.




so when you ask why I never told. that's why.
