Some people find themselves asking what exactly is rape and molestation? Aren't they the same thing? Well, from someone who personally experienced both, I can personally say, no, they are not. They may have some similarities, but they are two totally different things. Rape is another term for sexual assault and is usually done by a man to a woman, but some women rape men, too. Statics show that one in five women and one in seventy-one men are raped at least once in their lives. Molestation is also sexual assault, but it can also be abuse of a person towards women and most of all children. Statistics show that every 98 seconds, an American is sexually assaulted. And every eight minutes, that victim is a child. I am a rape and molestation survivor and this is my story.
