Why I can’t go on cnn.com any longer
Biologically, to some degree or another, I’ve decided, women are at the mercy of men. Especially if you revisit a sort of Hobbesian State of Nature sort of ideal. We walk around, open.
Every day, we are open. We can be mentally closed as much as our hearts please. But. Generally speaking, our physical strength is not on par with that of men. Our sexual organ is a straight path of access, as soon as we are naked. Thus. We are always open.
I am frustrated for the women of the world. Do we all walk around with some level of sexual risk at all time? Yes. I’d go so far as to say we abuse ourseves to some degree. But it’s nothing like Africa. It’s nothing like the Middle East. Cue my bleeding heart intensity on this issue, but, sometimes I can’t even sleep thinking about women being absolutely torn apart. Gang raped. Mutilated. Humiliated. Force-raped in front of their chilren. Drugged 8 year old sex slaves. And every other sick thing you could possibly think about. I don’t even consider myself a feminist by modern standards. Really, I don’t. This issue is separate for me.
Now you’ll want to ask me, what about men that are killed all over the world? Tortured? Captured? Hm? Etc.
Sorry, but it’s different for me. Sexual abuse is different. Show me a man who has been sexually abused and I will offer the same sympathy. It’s not gender-specific in principle, but it just happens to women way more. I see sexual abuse as the pinnacle human rights violation. Your sexuality, your insides, have a pathway to your existential self. The soul, if you will.
By sexual abusing someone, you kill them worse than if you pulled out each fingernail and shot them in the face ten times.
You kill them from the inside, and then torture them with life.
