My dad raped me when he was drunk, because he thought I was my mother, now my parents are getting a divorce?
My name's Carl, I'm a 17 year old African American and my father raped me 3 days ago because of his alcoholism.
I love my father despite everything he's done to me, he came home drunk and bust down my door, and smacked me in the side of the head with a beer bottle and the next thing you know I was being raped, apparently he thought it was my mother, I'm not sure how, but my mother found out about this and now she wants a divorce.
My dad drinks about 4 bottles of beer a day, and is 160lb, so he can't handle alchohol that well, I don't want my parents to get divorced, should I lie and say that I made the whole thing up to protect my dad?
If he mistook you for your mother, then he has been treating your mother this way(?). Perhaps your mother was willing to put up with this treatment, but now that it has been extended to you, she is rethinking things and deciding that she wants her children to have more dignity than that.
I think this is not an excuse to rape anyone. Today he misunderstood you as your mother, next time it could be a friend of her of a sister of yours. I am not saying that he should be divorced. You must help her by sending him to a rehabilitation center.
The least you can do for your parents is to get your father rid of this root problem, which is apparently alcohol.
