I am sorry to hear that firstly you had the experience of being raped and also that you haven't been believed. I cannot know why people haven't believed you. How does it make you feel that no one believes you?
Did you find this post helpful?

Unfortunately, victim-blaming is still a huge problem worldwide. Rape is a serious issue, but it's not really thought to be. The police think that the victim asked for it (and so does society as a whole most often) by pushing it onto their clothing, behavior, or substance use. The reality is, if you were raped, you were raped, and no one asks for it. It's a reflection of society's need to blame victims, and I'm sorry your dealing with this, but it's a painful truth of living in the world right now. Hopefully, you can find someone who believes you and validates your feelings.
I have been in your shoes. I was raped about 4 years ago and it was to the point where I didn't even go t any type of law enforcement because even my own family didn't believe me. I was 17 at the time and the guy was I believe like 30 at the time. I'm 20 years old now and people still make comments about it as if I consented to this man. Honestly if you know what happened nobody else's opinions matter. As for trying to get this guy put away for doing this to you.. I would suggest that you get a lawyer. There are even some lawyers out there that you don't have to pay unless you win the case.
