  •  sensitivity to OTHER PEOPLE (0+ / 0-)

    i'm not talking about being sensitive about abuse.  i'm talking about being sensitive to people who are abused and not using abuse as a metaphor for fucking politics.

    and i believe that you were abused if you say so.  i'm sorry i said i didn't.

    but it is still an asshole thing to do to use abuse as a way to make a political point.

    as for my personal abuse.  let me just say that my brother and i were abused in a way that took him 10 years to speak after.  he was older.  i was younger.  i recovered faster.  mostly.  i still have ptsd.  even 36 years later.

    •  apology noted. d0nut removed... (2+ / 0-)

      ...coming from someone like me, a fellow victim of sexual predator abuse myself. The pain of my own abuse still lingers on. Even 54 years later. But I don't lash out at anyone for what that monster did to me. That would make me no less an abuser than he was. I take full responsibility for my life.
