One aspect of 1 compared to 2 and 3 that hasn't been mentioned is that Example 1 will probably cause you to lose a significant proportion of your friends, including some who will verbally attack and smear you for suggesting that the lovely trustworthy person assaulted you.

I find it difficult to rank these scenarios without feeling I am suggesting certain victims suffer less. I have never been assaulted but I have friends who have. One of the common, heartbreaking features I have noticed is that the victim often feels that the term rape doesn't apply to their experience, it only applies to other, more 'serious' rapes.
