I Guess I Missed The DU Rapist Genesis... But...

My sister, one of three, was kicked out of her boyfriend's Corvette because she was trying to break her relationship off.

He circled her twice saying, "I love you, baby."

And then ran his Corvette into the stadium wall at Sac City College... killing himself, right in front of her.

Two years later... same sister... was asked by a guy if she wanted to dance...

She politely said no, and thanked the guy.

30 minutes later... as she was walking to her VW, thinking her friends were right behind her...

This same guy tells her to open the car door and get in there with him.

She refuses (going against the advice of law enforcement) and he slices her arm with a swith-blade to show how serious he is. When he does that, she screams bloody murder. And then he stabs her three time in the back... puncturing her lung.

She survives still... and is one AWESOME and forgiving person.

The reason I tell these rather personal tales...

Is twofold.

1) Try to distinguish between the various forms of rape... in order to keep RAPE un-muddled as a crime.


2) Remember... (not letting anybody off the hook here) but... many of us here at DU actually lived through the sexual revolution. And many did it with differing consequences.

But, as I remember, the challenge was, once you turned 18, you own your own body, and your own decisions.

I never took advantage of a sleeping woman because my philosophy is...

"I don't want to attend a party I ain't invited to."

And twice in my young sexual revolutionary life... I was in mid... well ... you know...

and as soon as I knew the rules had changed, I backed away,and put it all away, and hugged them, and exited as friends.

The Sexual Revolution WAS a lot about stuff like that. It was about learning new realities and social mores.

Don't know if this makes any sense, but... my 2 cents.

Excuse Me... But In Many Ways... This ENTIRE SITE Was Founded Over A STOLEN ELECTION

Now 2012 was not stolen, in part because thousands of people voted early, by mail, and those that did not, refused to budge from the lines they were in.

To me... the ONLY elections that can be stolen, are ones that are razor thin. But... because of increased awareness, because of 2000, 2004, and the obvious attempt to disenfranchise DEMOCRATS in several states this time around... people got pissed, came out in droves, and stood their ground.

AND... made it unstealable.

I really have no idea what the reality of the Rove/Anonymous story is. But I am enjoying the fallout never the less.

But for some posters who've just arrived, and are hectoring the rest of us...

We who survived Bev Harris, and Black Box Voting, and loved Andy Stephenson, and on, and on, and on...

It is more than a tad insulting to be told to shut up.

We discuss things on this here discussion board... and I for one do not normally care if my petty-coat is showing.

I have this nasty habit... I tend to think for myself.

And I leave symbols... to the symbol minded. (Thank you George Carlin!)
