Wow! Those are some harsh blows you've had to endure.
I think a lot of people are just too darn naive by the meanings of words. If you say to someone you know how much pain you feel when you accidently have the hammer hit your thumb instead of the nail, people who have experience that, can identify with the pain. But when you mention rape, many dont understand because they haven't had the horrible opportunity of experiencing something you have no control of. That's why i say they are naive, they don't have an understanding what words really mean and what they can cause in damage, because they dont understand and haven't experienced it. And are too darn fixated in their little care-free, unsympathetic lifestyles that they will never see, cause they are too darn naive and stupid. But we have to be greatful that we are so much more than those people, we are intellegent, empathetic and knowledgeable and we have to have people in the world like them to make us realise how much we have and how little they see in life. But still they are idiots and there's not much hope for people like that.
Thanks for sharing with us....
