virginitiphobia~ the fear of rape

by Carlin

virginitiphobia is the fear of rape. As a rape victim, I have started getting anxious around the topic. Thinking about what happened to me triggers panic attacks and sometimes make it so I cant leave the house or attend my classes. My main way of coping for a while was avoiding the topic but I have come to realise talking about it is the way I've learnt to cope. while hiding from the situation made me feel safe it also made my feel worse when I was in a situation that I couldn't avoid.
