    Hello Rober,

    That is an interesting name, I have never seen it before and I sure hope it is correct!

    That said, thank you for your interest in joining the largest women’s organization in the world.

    Most-all girl raypes go unreported to police. Even after girls who were rayped when too young to have the power to alert police, even when they reach that age they keep it a secret.
    Men, on the otherhand, crow like roosters about it. Many only coming to grips with it after many hours of arduous therapy...painful memories to be sure. But HUNDREDS of fond childhood memories dredged-up too. I regret my abusive upbringing not one bit. The abuse I suffered is my own and can only be shared with true victims. Volunteers and enablers have always rubbed me the wrong way and always will.

    To quote Sam Roberts, where have all the good people gone? I suppose I could chat with Philip for a while, but I just had some dental work done and I'm not up for a similar experience.

    Seems someone has forgotten about a little bit of history about me, so I'll just leave it at that...
    That being said, as one who loves to tell people about google, google THESE keywords: priest abusing girls.
    Then one cannot say "when was the last time someone heard about a priest ra ping a girl?" as is it never happens.
    The word VICTIM is gender neutral.
    I do not know of ONE person, ever, who has volunteered to be ra ped, but if that is how one wants to look at it to help themselves heal, that's all right by me, however wrong it is in that rationalization.
    As for those who enable another to be victimized: take that up with whoever enabled that to happen; and NOT the victims.
    That's almost as disgusting as the act of ra pe itself.

    Helloooo @ kenney, & youre so right, only a self centered person feels the need 2 remind someone continuously about a personal tragic experience that way! I know its something i dont care 2 be reminded of daily when ive spent most of my life tryin 2 4get!

    And again lmao @ BOMBO, comparing that to dental work sounds pretty appropriate. And yes @ Philip, its a pretty sure bet that we could all testify that you have repeatedly crowed about it like a rooster! I would think you would have a sore throat by now!

  12. Ne real @banasy

    While a 12 yr. old girl might not have the moxy to report her uncle or her holy man for raypeing her, by the age of 24 she might. But even then it goes without the police ever knowing. (do not look for loopholes in the law to get around this, you will only look desperate)
    The fact is, most females hide their raypes and most men tell of them, even if just eventually. I reported mine to the police when I was 15. (my parents were dead-set on having doctors drug me)
    I'm not putting females down as you hope. I'm pointing out that nothing good ever came of boy raype. Girl raype can produce a president.

    • Desperate?

      When you extrapoliate on something as grim as ra pe and you minimalize one half of the segment of people who are ra ped (that's the female half, in case you were not aware that's what you're doing) you are dehumanizing them. To say "hey, they can have a kid" as a reason that it's not as bad is really, really flawed reasoning, and if you do not get that you logic is flawed, you are not getting the help to see that every person who is ra ped is deserving of dignity, grace, and understanding. I feel sorry for you as a human. Ra pe isn't a competi tive sport. The victims will never win, and stop with the "boys have it so much worse" garbage. This has got to be the worst series of posts I have ever seen from you, and I have seen plenty. Just stop it. You appear devoid of any sort of sympathy except for yourself.
