No line for the men's room
No lines cut
And I hit his face as he pushed me,
pulling my jeans down.
Its hard to scream with someone's
dick in your mouth.

UGLY! Statistical Truths Are Even Uglier!
This conveys an ugly experience in so few words. Your writing is without exception: exceptional!

I hope this isn't based on your real experience. I know this is a real experienced for a lot of unfortunate women. I heard the statistics:


* Every two and a half minutes, somewhere in America, someone is sexually assaulted.
* One in six American women has been the victim of an attempted or completed rape, and 10% of sexual assault victims are men.
* In 2003-2004, there were an average annual 204,370 victims of rape, attempted rape or sexual assault.
* About 44% of rape victims are under age 18, and 80% are under age 30.
* Since 1993, rape/sexual assault has fallen by over 64%.

2004 Statistics
In 2004, there were 209,880 victims of rape, attempted rape or sexual assaults according to the 2004 National Crime Victimization Survey (pdf).

Of the average annual 204,370 victims in 2003-2004, about 65,510 were victims of completed rape, 43,440 were victims of attempted rape, and 95,420 were victims of sexual assault.

Because of the methodology of the National Crime Victimization Survey, these figures do not include victims 12 or younger. While there are no reliable annual surveys of sexual assaults on children, (pdf) the Justice Department has estimated that one of six victims are under age 12.

It's Not Always a Stranger Hiding in the Bushes

Contrary to the belief that rapists are hiding in the bushes or in the shadows of the parking garage, almost two-thirds of all rapes were committed by someone who is known to the victim. 67% of sexual assaults were perpetrated by a non-stranger – 47% of perpetrators were a friend or acquaintance of the victim, 17% were an intimate and 3% were another relative.
