As a brother how would you help your sister out of a rough situation?

Recently I was raped and the guy told everyone at my school we had sex. My brother got really mad when he thought we had sex and called me a whore. I have only had sex w one other guy so it was uncalled for. I went through a month of telling no one and was depressed with no friends. then I broke down and told his best friend who practically lives at our house and before we were really close. He found out yesterday and I was out of town with my other brother so I was wondering how you would respond in this situation. I've always been fragile so he's cautious around me.

  • I'd be in jail for murder if I found out my sister got raped and I knew who did it.

    Why didn't you report the rape? Please do so, even if they can't get the evidence to convict his nasty predator ass, there needs to be a paper trail. People like that don't stop, and you probably aren't his first victim. You won't be the last, and people like that need to be removed from society.

    Standard date rape question that will make me into a pariah: Did you say no and resist? If so, and he didn't stop immediately, he's a scumbag and needs to go down.

    • Didn't tell because I told my family I wouldn't hang out with this kid anymore but I left a necklace in his brothers dorm room. Said no a million times. I lost my virginity to his best friend and he dated my former best friend who thought I had sex w him. My brothers assumed I was just being a slut and I was so mad they assumed the worst in me I felt all alone.

    • Good god that sucks. You deserve to be supported by your family in a situation like that. Unless you have a huge history of lying about this kind of thing it's not the sort of thing you just sweep under the rug and say she's making it up. Damn. :-(

    • Girl report the rape no matter what!

    • Show All
  • If I found out my sister was raped by any man, I would do time for her, because no man has the right to touch any girl without consent, and if he does he desrves exactly what comes to him, and unfortunately, I cannot and will not express on here, what I would do to any man who touched my sister in this way, or any female in my life. I'm sorry for your ordeal, I hope you find some sort of closure eventually, unfortuantely, I don't think your brother will,x

  • Brothers are guys, so don't rely on them to show female emotion of being considerate and empathetic listener. He may not believe you or he may get angry and try to hurt the guy. Or he may not know what to do so just become inactive and ignore you while he stews over it. These are all pretty standard responses to finding out about rape.

    I'd suggest not worrying about your brother and trying to talk to a professional.

  • I have two brothers and I think that both of them would try to help me through it. You really need to report whoever raped you. If you don't, then he will most likely do it again to someone else. There are also lots of resources available to victims of rape.

  • If I found out that some guy raped my sister, I would definitely not call her a "whore". I would talk to her so I can find out who did it, and how it all happened. Then, I would look for him, and if I find him... beat him up whether he is one of the macho guys or not. Also, if he left behind some kind of evidence that he actually raped her, I would go to the police with her and my parents for backup to file charges and whatever else is needed to get him punished.

  • I can't even begin to know what to say to you. All men want to look after the women in their lives whether the woman in question is a girlfriend/sister/daughter etc.

    It's absolutely awful that you were raped, and even worse that you have kept it to yourself. Your family now know. Let them help you. I would imagine you are about to find out exactly how much your brothers love you. You may be surprised at how much you mean to them.

  • I'd be pissed and I would probably go to jail for murdering the guy. You two should go to the police and the school staff and let them know what went on.

  • if it was me and I was close with my sister and we were in a good home and we didn't hate each other I would get me and my other brothers and beat the fuker. a good swift kick in the **** would also be in order. and although I'm not a fighter, and I don't condone violence...dont fuk with my family.

  • your brother is an idiot! he thinks you are a saint just because you are his sister.
