This Rape Victim's Viral Letter To Her Rapist Is Heartbreaking

Being a rape victim is something that no one ever wants to be. Yet every single day, many people are raped, both men and women. Worse, they are blamed for these incidents. They are told that their behavior or what they were wearing suggested that they were inviting rapists. This is far from the truth, and it reeks of ignorance regarding the fallacies of victim-blaming.

So when this woman was sexually assaulted behind a dumpster by a Stanford student, she felt as if life had given up on her. Not only was she physically abused, but she was also hurt emotionally. She did not want her family and friends to feel so bad for her. But her attacker did not want to admit to his wrongdoings, so she had to do something about it.

Find out what she said to him below.

Brock Allen Turner seemed to be on the way to having a good and comfortable life, but what he allegedly did to the woman back in January 2015 was too much for him to get away with it.

Last Thursday, the judge ordered him to serve in jail for six months.

However, many people were outraged at the sentence. They claim that if he was not a promising athlete in a prestigious university, he would have been there for more than 10 years.

Brock was charged with three sexual assault convictions.

The former Stanford student was told to register as a sex offender for three convictions sexual penetration with a foreign object of an unconscious person, sexual penetration with a foreign object of an intoxicated person, and assault with the intent to commit rape.

In fact, the letter notes that Emily Doe does not want the incident to ruin both her life and Brock's life. However, Emily wants him to face the punishment so that the both of them can move on. She said that they had a choice to either face the pain and the punishment to go on, or let the issue destroy them.

Brock's father is also being criticized for his remarks.

The father said that the sexual assault issue has made his son's life miserable, that he is now depressed and does not eat properly. He said that what he is facing is too much for "20 minutes of action." In turn, people said that Emily Doe has also been destroyed by Brock's 20 minutes of action on Emily's intoxicated and unconscious body.

Likewise, Emily said that his swimming capabilities should not matter.

In the letter, Emily Doe noted how his promising sports career should not affect his sentence.  Even if he was a good swimmer or if he was a poor, it does not change the fact that she was sexually assaulted.

Finally, Emily is thankful for the two Swedish bikers who saved her.

As Brock was sexually assaulting Emily behind a dumpster, two Swedish guys saw him. Brock immediately ran, but the bikers caught up with him and prevented him from going anywhere until the police arrived. 

It looks like the issue will not end until the judge recognizes how light six months is for someone who committed sexual assault, even if he is an athlete.
