      If you think this:

      Is this the behaviour toward women, toward relationships, that you are okay with?

      is an even remotely appropriate response to what I've said, you are either badly in need of a reading comprehension course, or you are deliberately setting up a strawman so that you can feel righteous.

      Does it feel good? I bet it feels awesome, doesn't it? Mmmm... sweet righteousness.

      Let's get something crystal clear here:
      I AM one of the victim's Black Max is trying to protect. If you'd read what I wrote for comprehension rather than righteous indignation, you'd know that. I object to the trivialization of the real brutalization of rape by characterizing a god damn piece of paper, no matter how (WOOT! WOOT! SIREN ALERT! IMPORTANT WORD APPROACHING!) horrific (WOOT! WOOT! WOOT!), as "brutalizing" someone. You'd know what, too, if you were reading for comprehension instead of righteous indignation.

      But, I know, righteous indignation is tasty.

      •  Not righteous indignation. I'm one of the (0+ / 0-)

        survivors. I asked you a question, I wanted to learn what you think. I don't agree with you, am trying to understand why you feel that way.

        Horrific is my response to the sellers wares. It's a word. My opinion. I'm entitled to my opinion. Did I treat your opinion that way?

        I'm trying to read to understand you. Not set up a strawman or be righteous. I have stated we have differing views.

        How does your response further the discussion? Stating I have righteous indignation, objecting to my use of a word, questioning my reading comprehension, overreacting, does not prove your point, increase my knowledge of your reasoning, or encourage me to discuss further.
