In this life we all have been down different paths, our journey though may have similarites to another's life. Most women will not admit being raped. It is never the fault of the woman, it is the fault of society. women have to go thru the mill once they report it to authorities so this is often avoided. Suffering at the hands of another person is agonizing. For the women on CM who have the strength to admit this on this forum have been given a new life from God. Witnessing is a special gift and each of you have been blessed with it. You are helping other women who read your posts and I admire you for having the courage to post your life experiences here.
I understand where Dawn is coming from with her stalkers. People who are narrow minded will stalk when they see you as the enemy, by not going with the majority of posters views. By stalking you are sinning even though you may not see it this way right now.
everyone is entitled to their opinions and should never be attacked for expressing them. One day it may be your turn to be on the opposite end of the totem pole. remember, how you treat other people will come back to you one day.
Whether we live our lives as homemakers or business women we are all women. Remember ladies, we are all in this world together and we need to respect each other and love one another.
I believe each of us knows someone who has been raped whether it was you, a loved one or a friend. Personally, when I was a teenager I knew a 20 year old who was raped by her stepfather. Her mother forced her to get an abortion yet the mother kept her baby by this man. Months after the abortion, severe depression overcame her and she committed suicide a few years later. I also knew a teen who was raped by a neighbor who also had an abortion that her mother approved of. I still remember hearing on the news accounts of deaths due to coathanger abortions. My closest friend told me she was date raped as a teenager. She never married and has no plans on ever marrying. So, the rapist gets away with murdering a woman's life for the rest of her life....these are my comments from reading your posts
