I'm a lesbian but i had a dream about being sexualy assaulted by a man?

I felt the need to say I was gay mostly because i was wondering if this was a normal type of dream for a gay woman, other than that there are a few details to the dream i would like to mention 1. it started off where i had just left home and was walking down a street when i turned a corner and found myself in a... show more I felt the need to say I was gay mostly because i was wondering if this was a normal type of dream for a gay woman, other than that there are a few details to the dream i would like to mention

1. it started off where i had just left home and was walking down a street when i turned a corner and found myself in a very small unknown place with a man who i didnt recognise staring at me with a gun in hand. he then told me to take off my clothes. i could of ran but for some reason i didnt and all i did was start crying and started taking my clothes off

2. i dont remember the sex/assault actually happening but i remember appearing back at home fully clothed on the verge of tears when i told my mother i was sexually assulted.

3. many events happened after. i remember someone saying a keyword that i cant remember which caused me to cry and then i admitted something like "thats where it happened" or "thats where it was." im very confused about this particular part of the dream

4. in the dream i started questioning if it even happened. this wasnt after the dream it was in it. i started thinking if it was even real or if i had a dream about it and it didnt actually happen all while still in the dream

5. in the dream i became scared of men, even to the point of locking my own father out of the house until my mother showed up

6. i have not been raped before, some say rape dreams happen when you've been raped before but i havent.

what does this mean?
