A man saved me from drowning, but now I am suing him for rape because he touched me.


20-year old feminist Cassidy Boon speaks of a traumatic experience involving #SaveRape

A week ago I was close to dying from drowning. Here’s what happened…

 I was at this lake, having my first swim for the summer and although it was cold in the water it was quite pleasant and I finally got to try on my new super cute bikini. So anyway there’s this ten feet high, floating jumping tower out in the middle of the lake and I swam there to go practice my jumps. So I swatted away some annoying kids who were looking inappropriately at my body, and climbed the ladder up to the top platform, (there were three all in all, at different heights), and jumped.

There was a BANG, an explosion of pain, and then it all went black.

 The next thing I knew I was being dragged through the water, by a man, and blood was running down my face and into my mouth. I didn’t have any idea what had happened, my head was spinning and throbbing and I felt like I was going to throw up. The man who was dragging me was like 40 or something and towed me towards the floating platform. I didn’t like this situation at all – at all. I asked him what had happened (in a very slurred tone) and he told me I had hit my head on the way down from the jumping platform, that I had been knocked unconscious and that I had been under water for at least two minutes. He said that he had been lucky to have felt my hand in the depths and that I was nearly at the bottom when he pulled me up. He carried me up the little ladder and laid me down on the wooden boards of the floating platform. People were gathering around us, gasping, screaming, crying. I was astonished, I couldn’t believe it, I couldn’t believe I was alive. I was feeling like shit though, I was woozy, I was in pain, but most of all, most of all, I was disgusted.

I was disgusted at this hairy man having felt it appropriate to touch my body like that. To grab me forcefully and pull me in what ever direction HE wanted to go. He took control of my body down there in the cold water, when I was unconscious and unable to look out for myself, he touched my all-but-bikini bare body when I was KNOCKED out and unable to struggle. Him, being a white man, felt he had the right to possess my milky body – to put his rough hands on my innocent flesh and command my body to come with him to the surface. I did NOT give him consent, in fact I was UNABLE to give consent and yet he grabbed me around my waist and gripped my hand and pressed my body against his like we he wanted to engage in aquatic sex.

I am now charging or suing or whatever this man for rape – because what he did is literally the definition of rape – he exerted his Patriarchal power over me and did stuff to my body without my consent. Sure, he saved me from drowning, but if we start excusing rape just because our rapists did a nice thing to us, we’re really just excusing rape culture. I know a lot of misogynists and anti-feminists are going to be all like “hurr durr, you should thank that man for saving you, you wouldn’t be there without him, he only touched you because he needed to save you from downing” Oh yeah and by that shoddy logic we should excuse serial killers for being nice to hitchhikers and picking them up before killing them. The truth is HE RAPED ME, HE PUT HIS HANDS ON ME WITHOUT MY CONSENT, and regardless of saving my life or not, he needs his due punishment for violating me in that disgusting way. If you don’t see anything wrong with what he did, you’re a rape apologist. Sure it was kind of a nice thing to do to save me and all, but that doesn’t excuse him raping me.

The guy, my rapist, who’s name I later learned was Jim, is due before courts soon, charged with rape. When I told him I was pressing charges, he was shocked, then he got angry and then he even began to cry when he thought about what his family would have to go through. Seeing my rapist break down that way was nothing less than empowering and I am glad I am able to put him before the justice system and have him punished for what he put me through. There is no way I am losing this fight. Jim will get at least ten years in prison – my lawyers will make sure of that and maybe this will set an example for other men who think they have the right to touch women without consent.

I hope to start a revolution now. I hope to shed some light on a very rare, but very damaging form of rape that doesn’t get enough attention. It’s called “Save rape” and it’s what I was subjected too, deep, deep down in that filthy lakewater and I know – I KNOW – many hundred girls are subjected to the same thing every year from strange men who grab their chance to cop a feel.

I’m starting this hashtag #SaveRape right now to spread awareness about this issue and you all should totally tweet under it. Let’s go people, let’s take down the Patriarchy, one tweet at a time.

    BAHAHAHAHAHA!!! This is a joke, right? What an idiot.

  2. Should have let the bitch drown. Sounds like an egotistical cunt who is racist, bigoted twat. Hope the bitch goes swimming again and does the same thing again and no one saves her. ?

  3. Ungrateful little girl is she now encouraging the opposite sex to let them die from drowning he should of left her. Maybe then she would be happy.

  4. Luckily there is a law called good Samaritans that protects against things like this as long as acted with good intentions.

  5. It’s a joke people!

    Sounds to me like a suicide attempt that went wrong so now she has to make everybody as miserable as herself!

  7. Girl stop it.well he should have let you die

  8. Your a fucking bitch girl!

  9. I believe this is a joke, but if not how else was he supposed to help her, call the star ship Enterprise and have her beamed to safety or telepathically move her with his mind. If one day she really gets raped she would know the difference, what she is doing is an insult to people that have genually been raped.

  10. Absolutely astonishing. She has no realisation of the actual damage that could have been caused to herself and her family if she had not made it. That man was a saviour to her. Ungrateful and selfish. Let’s see whag would happen if for example it happened to her own daughter, would she let her drown? Or would she let a man with good intentions save her life even if it meant touching her daughter to save her from drowning.

  11. You sad young lady, I am a trained lifeguard and unfortunately when someone is drowning you do what you have to in order to save that life. As a lifeguard you cannot think about other things when you are saving someones life the victim is the number one priority and getting them to safety, nothing else counts. Lifeguards are passionate about what they do and you are a very sad individual who should be thanking this champion not suing him. The problem with what you are doing will stop other passionate lifeguards saving lives due to the risk of being sued. I suggest you grow up and get a life, you are sick in the head, you need help. You weren’t raped, your life was saved start by saying ‘THANK YOU’ you ungrateful little girl.

  12. Someone should take this bitch back to the lake hit her head on something and throw her back in, fucking stupid bitch you probably give blow jobs behind shops for the attention.

  13. That guy should of left her the evil little bitch ,like this is just horrible she was lucky to be alive and this is how she treats him I think all this she is saying is a load of crap what a sad low life of a girl some people are not lucky to be alive still so they can see their family and that ,so their is that girl wanting to get that man for apprently save rape,How does that work the man put his life at risk to save her is their someone wrong with this girl or something ?,makes me so mad get over your self you horrible girl the pain you causing that man because he thought he was helping you its disgusting and everything that the mans gonna lose cause of you grow up !

  14. O yeah spelling mistake lool *something I mean not someone *

  15. What a sick joke!
    This has got o be fake,
    But what a sick joke to write!
    Rape and death are not thing to be taken lightly as joked about!

  16. I think she needs to check the sexual offences act. That does not constitute rape in any shape or form and wouldn’t actually constitute sexual assault either unless she can prove the man did it for his own sexual gratification. Which I’m sure he did not! Way to go girl -_-

  17. Ergh messed up little slut! Pissed me right off, some people actually do and have been raped!! Isn’t anything to joke about you sad little girl! I hope karma hits you hard you cunt! When it does thousands will be celebrating it the cunt, ergh it really gets me angry this do? hang it, hang the bastard! Go get attention where else, low life??????

  18. What a complete twat , you ruin a man’s life for saving yours , you realise by your actions how many people will die now because people will be to affraid to help them. If he gets charged for this then you should be charged for the manslaughter of every man woman and child that this has a ripple effect on when someone has to take a second from now on to weigh up the odds wether it is worth saving a life and risking the chance of prosecution. I honestly hope next time you are in need of help the person thinks twice because you honestly fucking deserve nothing from no body.

    This man deserves a fucking medal not a court case you sadistic twisted excuse for a human being.
