I decided to be honest on the MFO Facebook page about what happened to me

A couple of guys very quickly reposted their photos to keep it from being on top of the feed. No comments, no likes. Exactly what I expected. My heart is still pounding. Can't believe how scary it was to tell the truth of the rape. I'm glad I did it though. Maybe more females who served there will come forward too.

+1, beautiful post...there is so much rage and

As a woman it frightens me how strong the movement to put us women "in our places" has become.

I remember an Air Force Major General (now retired) forcing his staff to read an article talking about how not enough white babies are being born and how we must fight against that by eliminating contraception for females. It went on to point out the relationship between education of women and low birth rates and suggested we should eliminate education for women, similar to the way it was once illegal to teach black people to read.

The fact that this stuff is so open and so very popular, chills my blood. I hope we can fight against it but look at some of the posts even here and you will understand why I am so pessimistic.

I remember when I first learned about prejudism.

I was in 3rd grade in Alexandria Virginia. The teacher told us about how some people thought other people with darker skin weren't as good. I actually burst out laughing because the idea of that was so ridiculous to me that I thought the teacher was pulling our legs and joking.

I didn't get it because white privilege protected me from knowing about racism.

I wonder how many, many things I don't get even to this day and probably wont ever get because I have white privilege. I suck. I don't want to suck but I do.

I probably shouldn't even be posting because what could I possibly say of any value?

To say the least. Disheartening is a word I'd use to describe it.

I've fought all my life for justice, for less harm, for a better world.

Still waiting to hear if I have NMO (fatal disease) or "just" MS.

Thinking, I might be dying now....and all my struggles to try to make a better world were nothing but a fart in a hurricane. How useless my life has been.

My eyes were opened to just how many men like kiddy porn...

Political ads in Virginia talking about how many tens of thousands of computers identified with child porn on them. Too many to prosecute really.

Friend coming back from Afghanistan saying his biggest duty, most time used up, was removing kiddy porn from the computers of our military.

I read a few years ago, kiddy porn is the fastest growing sector of porn on Internet.

So, so many things like this. I see what are coy little apologies for child rape even on DU and I know what it is when I see it. Even if there is plausible deniability.

And it occurs to me, they are trying to shut us up mainly because we are threatening their fun. We are trying to take their preferred type of sex away from them.

1 in 3 females sexually abused before 18. It's not just a few men doing all that raping. It is pandemic. Even here on DU.

Morning Joe criticizing IRS for silly training videos.

Methinks this will be the start of a movement to get rid of the IRS. Hey, no IRS, much easier for billionaires to avoid paying taxes!

Jesus they aren't hiding it at all anymore. Fascism all the way, all the time....hope we can fight back more effectively than the Polish did when they threw rocks against the invading Wehrmacht's tanks.

Oh, no, it was another article she wrote, one of three she has had published.

She talked about her earliest memories being her father using her for sex (age 4) and then concluded, "I guess it's true that you never forget your first lover."

Ps her other article was about her awesome boobs.

PPS I think being raped as a child really does cause harm, and changes a person. I wrote a thread about it a few lines up, talking about an old friend of mine named Jennifer. For me, and for many if not most of us if you believe the studies, it sets a person up to think of themselves as an object to be used. Kind of teaches us our place in life, if you will. When I read that article I thought I recognized that training in her, too.

My friend Jennifer told me a story when we were both 13.

She told me this story while we were waiting for the older boys to arrive, with their friends along with them. We provided sex for whoever showed up. No matter if we were having our period and not feeling well...we knew the rules. We had to put out to any man who asked us. We knew our roles by heart. I certainly never entertained the idea, at 13, that I had the right to say "no." That's what child sexual abuse did to me.

Jennifer told me about her first time. She said she was ten and her 19 year old brother invited her up to the remote cabin the family owned, for the weekend.

Her brother and a bunch of his friends got her drunk then spent the rest of that weekend taking turns raping her.

"I was really scared and it hurt and I was crying but I am glad now it happened because now I'm not afraid to have sex."

I nodded. I understood exactly what she was saying. Then we serviced a half dozen older boys in the snow of a Montana winter night.

We both thought what happened to us was okay and normal. We thought servicing young men without regard for our own health and well being was normal and okay too.

FEELING something is okay and not a big deal does not necessarily make it so.

That was what was going through my head when I read her account of the events in the park.

And you were born female...

Those of us born with the disgusting gash instead of the glorious godpenis deserve whatever happens to us don'tcha know....

Turns out I have Multiple Sclerosis, not GBS or CIDP. Well, at least I have a diagnosis now.

It sure does explain a whole lot of symptoms I've been having over the years. Even now I can't hardly walk from the numbness in my legs and I have other weird symptoms too.

Neuro just called me with the results. Multiple lesions on the brain and some on the thoraxic area too (not sure I spelled that right.)

Guess I'd better learn some things about MS.

I have an appointment with my neuro at Bethesda on Thursday.
