let's talk about rape for a few minutes

ok...so i just need to get this off of my chest...

it doesn't matter who you are, what you do for a living, how you dress, what race or ethnicity you are, where you go to school, how many kids you have, how old you are, how you were acting, how much alcohol/drugs you have had...you do not deserve nor did you ask to be raped.

it also doesn't or shouldn't matter who you are, how much money you have, what sports you play, or where you go to school...you cannot expect to rape a woman or a man for that matter and get away with it.

who knows if the boys they arrested are really the ones that raped her...someone did, and someone should be held responsible.

this rape will probably be added to the thousands that go unreported, unprosecuted, and unpunished. it is estimated that 50-90% of all rapes go unreported. i can't say that i blame the women...look what they have to go through.

just so you know...every 2 minutes, somewhere in america, someone is raped...that means 30 are raped in an hour, 720 are raped in an average 24 hour day, 21,6000 are raped in an average month, and 259,200 are raped in an average year. and these are just american statistics.

don't you think we have a problem on our hands?

Love your writing.
In my febuary Archive I posted about being raped. It was pretty tough but needed to get it out.

Thank you for writing on such an awful subject!
