How do I get people to take male rape victims seriously?

Trigger warning: rape


When I was 25. I had a girlfriend that I broke up with. I continued sleeping with her as friends with benefits's for awhile. We both agreed that it was best because we were good in bed, but bad as a couple. She still had feelings for months and months, cried sometimes. I didn't know how to support her, and she didn't want to stop what we were doing. Then I started dating a new girlfriend and decided to just stay friends. New girlfriend was fine with it. Ex came over to visit my mom and I. My mom left and my ex started begging me for sex. I kept telling her "no I have a girlfriend now." She kept saying "what she doesn't know won't hurt her." Then she randomly shoved me on the bed and straddled me. She was very heavy and I couldn't get her off of me. She was also strong. I struggled and yelled "rape" but she just slapped me across the face and said "shut up you know you like it." She somehow got my clothes off and proceeded to rape me. I only got her off by pretending I had a change of heart and she let me "get on top." I used the opportunity to escape. She started crying and I ran to the other room. Any time I mention this I am dismissed and told "shut up you are a guy, guys like that." Or that "you should have fought back men are stronger." Or "guys can't be raped if they like it. If you were hard then you liked it." They ignore that your body getting excited for sex does not mean you want the sex in your mind. You can be turned on when being raped and still not be happy its happening.
