stories like these are so scary,
but they are so needed.
it’s a shame that someone like demarco majors,
who came out as a gay basket baller wolf,
would be coming out as the main character to something else.
he is a warning for all of us to be careful out in these forests.
demarco majors not only is a rape victim,
but he also has hiv because of it.
he shared his story with “hiv plus magazine”.
this is a snippet of how it happened…
“…Then came a night Majors doesn’t remember, other than some guy telling him he was a doctor. When he woke up Majors discovered he had been drugged, sexually assaulted, and abandoned. Like a lot of survivors, he’s replayed the night over a hundred times in his head, wondering if he could have done something different.
“Just because you’re curious and you go off … and want to hook up with somebody … you never ask for someone to put something extra into your drink. People are hitting on you, you feel good, and every answer is ‘yes.’ You say ‘Yes’ to everything when you’re high. I didn’t say ‘No.’ But when you know that something has happened because you wake up somewhere and you’re looking around and you have no idea where you are — that’s the most terrifying feeling ever. And following that came the shame.”
i told the foxhole before how my parents were serious about watching my drinks.
it even went as far as watching my drink being made.
the life is all about the parties and the sex,
but with anything,
there is always a dark side.
even telling someone “no” can still be a “yes” in their own head.
it seems like this happens a lot in the life.
and some having contracted a disease because of it.
i’m glad demarco is sharing his story.
it’s important for those to speak out so others can know they are not alone.
