I take it personally whenever you compare your situation to rape. It doesn't make your situation any clearer to me. It just makes me wince, & it makes me feel that you aren't sensitive at all to this issue. You know very well that I'm sensitive to this. So, just humor me, if that's the way that you want to treat me, & please stop comparing what happened to you to a rape. There is an element of physical violence in a rape that is not present in slander, though both rape & slander are violent events.
I ALREADY know that you've been treated disgracefully & attrociously by certain people in your community. But, please don't take your frustrations about a certain woman out on me because I may say some silly/sarcastic things on the board, & please also stop inferring that I'm like that woman or a "hysterical shemale," a stereotype from the last millenium.
Every action could have a million different causes. Because one person seems to act like another, it does NOT necessarily mean that they both have the same reasons for their actions or that their actions are exactly the same.
