    enrages me and makes me so deeply sad at the same time.

    Because females don't generally commit violence, they are not paid attention to and the quiet desperation of so many who abuse drugs, damage themselves in other ways, or commit suicide is not talked about.

    If girls were out beating, killing and taking out their anger the way boys do...it would be a whole different focus.

    And when they do try to defend themselves, they get f#$ked over by the court system (not to mention many end up in prison with sentences 10-30 times longer than a rapist which average 2 yrs on the 1% chance of the 1% that ever go to trial--all for just defending themselves.)

    Martha Stewart said of the people she met in prison that so many (the majority) of the women were sexually imprisoned were abused -- the majority.

    My heart goes out to you and your daughter's spirit wherever she may be.
