Could you date someone (male or female) who was raped or sexually assaulted?

I haven't been, just FYI, but there are people who I am close to who have experienced sexual assault during periods of their lives and I'd be lying if I didn't feel bad for them. I could only imagine their experience, so I did, and it inspired me to beg the question: "Would it scare someone away if I told them I was sexually assaulted?"

Note, I would never do such a thing, but I can only imagine how many assault survivors have to ask themselves this question, and how many don't speak up out of fear of scaring someone off. So my question for you today is: could you date someone of your preferred gender even if they had been sexually assaulted/raped? Why or why not?
