If anything, the people I work with take great offense by your arrogance in including them in my mispeakings. Also, I explained I was wrong after doing some serious thinking both in how I wrote it and in how I felt. It does make sense and now you're just one more person on a long list of people who won't be helping me get things done to help all of us. Surprise, surprise. Someone on the forum is not going to be helpful.
Please list the businesses that support your statements about rape victims asking for it. I'm sure everyone in the forum who knows someone who was raped would just love to know.
In all seriousness, I apologize (and apologized) for the way I wrote that, but you really need to understand that it's unfair of you to group organizations I work in with some random quotes like it means something. If Bill Gates said he hates clowns, would you say Microsoft is anti-circus? I'm confident you can find a quote in history for any human being that would put them in a bad light, even you. Is that reason for hanging them without inquiry?
You didn't say you hate clowns. You say rape victims share the blame. How dare you attempt to trivialize such an issue. I suspect that if Bill Gates made the public statement you
made Microsoft's checkbook would absolutely feel it and very, very quickly.
I encourage more of this as I need more reason to leave this forum for the ones that are actually productive and honest.
Don't let the door hit you in your unbelievably insensitive and unwelcome ass on the way out.
It's the best thing for someone like me who has way too much energy, way too many good ideas, and is being stifled by nit pickers.
I read your viewpoints on rape. I know what passes for a good idea to you. If that's the kind of idea you come up with, then please, do get lost. I can't see anyone with common decency mourning the loss of your "intellect."
Another thing-- since when did civilization retard itself to the point that even when someone makes a statement, judgement comes before education? I've spoken with many people who had misrepresented themselves, asked if they really meant it and explained how it looked it others, and had them gasp at how they didn't realize they were coming across. I mean. Come on. Is there really that little love and forgiveness on this forum? Am I really just a satanist blogger on a church website or what?
Spend six months taking care of your eighty year old landlady who is in a wheelchair like I did because of a sex crime. Then we'll talk.
Spend two weeks in the hospital and two years on mobility assistance devices because you tried to stop your next door neighbor's ex-boyfriend from raping her on her front lawn when you were on the way home from the store. Then we'll talk.
Spend the entire rest of your life trying to get over the loss of the first person you fell in love with after they committed suicide because they were drugged and raped, and the rapist convinced a jury the drug use was the victim's idea. Then we'll talk.
I can assure you none of those people were "asking for it."
