Alyssa Milano Comes Forward with Her Own #WhyIDidntReport Story of Sexual Assault

Alyssa Milano is joining the #WhyIDidntReport movement to relay her story about why she personally did not report her sexual assault.

“When I was sexually assaulted, I wasn’t that much older than Christine Blasey Ford — now a PhD in psychology — was when she was allegedly assaulted by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh (Kavanaugh denies the incident occurred). I’ve watched, horrified as politicians and pundits refused to believe or take seriously these allegations,” Alyssa wrote in an essay for Vox.

Alyssa continued, “It took me years after my assault to voice the experience to my closest friends. It took me three decades to tell my parents that the assault had even happened. I never filed a police report. I never told officials. I never tried to find justice for my pain because justice was never an option.”

“For me, speaking up meant reliving one of the worst moments of my life. It meant recognizing my attacker’s existence when I wanted nothing more than to forget that he was allowed to walk on this Earth at all. This is what every survivor goes through. Telling our stories means being vulnerable to public attacks and ridicule when our only crime was to be assaulted in the first place,” she added.

If you don’t know, the #WhyIDidntReport movement started after President Donald Trump asked on Twitter why Christine didn’t report the assault.

    is this the first time she’s talking about this? if so, she’s lying.

    When there has been nothing…in all six FBI background checks that speaks to the sort of behavior he is accused of…when not one of the people she claims were in attendance at a party corroborate her story…when she told no one over 30+ years…when she can provide very little detail of the evening…why SHOULD we believe her? Because she is a woman and says so? I think not. And, since Milano has not detailed her experiences, there is no way to conclude whether or not to believe they actually happened.

    Milano looks like someone who should be in prison.
    Something is wrong with this rich, pampered noisemaker.
    I wonder if we will ever learn her problem.

    This woman is so desperate for attention and to be relevant that she would literally say anything at this point to get a headline. Go away, you has been!

    People don’t understand how malleable memory is specially repressed ones. It’s like hypnosis and subconscious suggestion.
