I really can't take much more this week.
I would assume my therapy, after I was raped, was that different from many others. I had one on one session and I had group therapy. And I remember everyone of the faces from the group and I remember this one woman who felt like her court room appearance was just as bad as her rape because she had her name dragged through the mud.
I think about what happened to me and what happened to so many other women and I keep seeing this crap pouring out from our supposed friends on the left. I'm so sick of it. I'm so sick of it all.
Thank you to C.I. who has covered this seriously and in depth in four of the five snapshots this week. She picked it up Tuesday when Naomi Wolf published her column mocking the victims of rape, implying women lied for attention.
I appreciate all the strong women who've spoken out. I've tried to be strong myself.
But it's been really rough. And I had really lucky in terms of my case. My rapist got sent to prison. That's lucky, talk to any survivors group, you'll find how few rapists ever go to jail and how much it costs a woman to speak out about what happened.
They're so desperate that it's okay with them that they're doing everything that we've called out for years, it's okay with them that they're undoing the work of feminists on this issue, this issue no one talked about once upon a time.
It doesn't matter to them. Women don't matter to them. All that matters to them is saving Julian Assange.
Note that I've never attacked Julian Assange. I've never had the need to.
But maybe these trashy disgusting Dave Lindorffs trash the women because, deep down, they're really afraid it's true.
