So, the story written by deadpoetssociety9 was actually written by me. I wasn’t ready for anyone to know it was me yet, but know the situation has become more complicated, and I’m sitting at my computer trying to write a 7 page essay midterm that is due tomorrow, and I feel like throwing up. My professor emailed me early this morning wanting to talk to me. He claimed that he thought I was showing interest, romantic interest, and that he thought we were “two adults” implying consent. Implying that there was no power dynamic. He assumed I was showing him all this attention and that he was so flattered and blah blah blah. I was just trying to get to know him as a person because, like I said before, I was close to a lot of mentors in undergrad and I was just trying to make a name for myself as a 1st year student. I was in no way portraying any romantic interest. I would never want that. I just feel so sick, I feel like I have felt every time I have been raped or sexually harassed. When will this end? Men assume because I am interested to hear about their life that that means I want something sexual, and I don’t understand why. This is not the first time this has happened to me. I am a nice person, I just care about other people and hear what they have to say. Why can’t I get away from this? No matter where I live, no matter who I meet. I get raped. I do not know if I should respond and tell him all of this, I don’t know what to do.
