Oh, so by THAT logic, you weren't actually disagreeing with me!
 ;D


This is getting stupid.

I don't disagree with you, that's the silly part. :D  I'm just saying that there's no need for this argument to continue in the way that it has, especially since we're well aware of everyone's intentions at this moment.

Heh. I actually agree with that, even if I fail at showing it.

Are we honestly arguing about an internet hug? Five characters in a thread post?

ohhh, it's not just about the hug, believe me.

Sorry...

Well it wouldn't help anyway...I didn't even find out until last month.
That doesn't necessarily mean it wouldn't help. If you've only admitted to yourself for about a month that you've been raped, then chances are there's quite a lot of this matter you're still dealing with.

It might be good to write about that. Just, you know, write without fear of criticism (you don't even have to post it here) and just say what you need to say.

I'm sorry if I'm not helping...

Okay. Let's channel all of this energy into essays, short stories, and woeful poetry. Alright? Alright.
I'll start.

I don't like when people fight
Even when it's online
Everytime they start to bite
I run around and around
"Hold the presses"
I scream
Please do not be mean
We're all people, we're all human
Unless you're not

I suppose by that I just mean "write with the knowledge that nobody's opinion matters (in this instance) but your own".

Oh, me next!

Alright, alright, I'll start
This negative energy breaks my heart
Because when the problem is resolved
A latecomer is the catalyst and it evolves
Into nonsensical and insensitive
Faux-witticism that lacks the analytical
Root of the true problem
And the surface gets goes higher
Until the foundation is forever hidden
And no one can remember
Who shot the shot
And no one can remember
Who yelled first
So everyone forgets and pretends to forgive

Alyss, have you ever read Alice Sebold's Lucky? It's basically a book detailing her own rape and her subsequent troubles and how she basically came back from it. It's not at all a textbook on the matter, but it's interesting. She didn't want to publish it for a while because she felt that therapeutic writing should not be sold for profit... But I'm glad she did. It's an intensely good book. It actually made me cry, which was something that I hadn't done in years (because of the meds I was on). If you feel like writing on your own bad experiences would be a bad idea, look to Ms Sebold. It's painful, but it helps in the long run.

I think I've read the beginning of it, back when I was 14. The problem is that I really have no proper memories of the rape at all. Like I said, I didn't even know it had happened until last month. When my doctor showed me the police report I had no idea what she was talking about.
