Sexual Abuse (Rape)

Sexual Abuse is a really tough topic. Rape is more common than jus movies. I personally knew someone who had been raped at a party. Its scary and serious.
Dictionary.com: any act of sexual intercourse that is forced upon a person.
Urban Dictionary: A crime. Quite terrible in nature. Often causes sever phycological damage to victim. Forced sexual intercourse. Often very violent in more then just a sexual way. And To force someone to ingage in unwanted sexual activities.

I have read many books about Sex abuse. Speak is one that really stands out. A girl becomes an outcast for calling the cops at a party after being raped by a popular guy.

Impulse is not only abuse but suicide as well. One boy's at the treatment facility for attempting to kill himself because he was raped. His mothers boyfriend raped him so he tried to beat the guy up. That only got him sent to jail.

Living Dead Girl also explores this. A girl was kidnapped as a young child and is forced to have sex with her kidnapper.

Speak is awesome. I also remember When She Hollers--I read it, but years and years ago. I do remember it being quite good, Laina.
