Today I sent a message out to a support group to get and give support following a sexual assault, the person who responded and was giving advice was the person who assaulted me. FML

Give his info to the police. Stay tough, OP. You're a fighter.

I don't know what to say. that is heartbreaking. I am so sorry. It might be worth finding about other support groups, so message because I'm sure there will be one. It is amazing that you are reaching out and really really important. if you message a different group, it won't be the same person there it will hopefully be someone that you can talk to and who will help. thinking of you OP

This person obviously didn't understand that what they did was assault...

Or maybe they did and working with victims is part of their "they can't possibly be bad, they help people" defence

Interesting theory. I thought they might be one of those guys who's like "she's looking at me she wants me to grope her"

Also you have to remember some people troll places like that in order to gain some kind of sick thrill. Ted Bundy worked at a suicide hotline and BTK worked in home security installation. Some people are sick and I hope OP reports this person and gets the help they need.

She did say the person was trying to give her advice etc though.

He might be working there to find vulnerable people to assault. It in no way implies he didn’t understand what he was doing, and I’m sure that if anything he’d be more aware of his actions since he hears the accounts of victims. But your comment ended with an ellipsis - are you implying something?

It just sounded like he needed to be told what he did was inapropriate.

Well that’s messed up on a number of levels. Sorry OP

You call the police if you are sexually assaulted and tell them who did it!

She better have evidence.

Report the SOB - to the police and to whoever organized the support group.

I am so sorry. I hope they get this person and that they're brought to justice. I also pray you find healing.

I also hope that they get this guy with evidence and not someone's word alone

I can’t believe 12 reacted to this by laughing. Shameful

I'm actually curious if they were ALSO a victim of sexual assault, and that's why they are that way. Apparently it's not unusual for those who commit assault to have been victims at one point themselves.

Oh no. Don't say stuff like that. You'll make the feminists go "REEE" and they'll accuse you of defending a rapist.

Ohhh My broken heart Im soo sorry OP
