Thanks for the reaching out. I have actually been so busy researching to write a 20-page paper that I have not really taken advantage at all of She Writes.
I found the place because I was looking for information on a woman who is a member--Ayda Erbal.
I am replying to you quickly since the paper I am writing is one of three I am writing this semester for my PhD in Philosophy. All three are on rape. The first which I already wrote and submitted was for my Philosophy of Race class and it was on black women and rape. It was called "Double-Oppression and the Double-Bind: The Rape of Black Women."
The one I am writing right now is for my History of Ethics: Radical Good and Radical Evil class. This one is going to be on rape, anger, and forgiveness (I think).
The last will be for my Feminist Epistemology class and will be on the perceived "naturalness" of rape.
I see that you have written on sex crimes, so I wanted to let you know what I got myself into as far as subject matter and more than that how it makes you feel dirty and unsure in the world.
Luckily, I have never been raped, but I am always interested in making a better world. There is no way we can have a kind world with such a high amount of pervasive coercion.
Thanks again for reaching out. Hopefully, I will become active soon in the group.
Thank you Jill, I am honored to be called your friend. You do wonderful work, very necessary in today's world. Children are precious gifts and the future, if only people were educated from an early ageto respect the feelings of all humans and animals, what a great world it would be.Unfortunately, we are not living in an ideal world, and can only do what is within our power, by word and deed to encourage this and to grow a society of caring humans. Our children are our arrows which we send into the world, carrying our hopes and our dreams, our aspirations, for which we remembered for through them, be gentle with their hopes, dreams and their futures. And arm them with love, hope, charity and caring in this life so each life achieves the purpose it was created for. Look forward to hearing from you again.
This is something that harks back to The Old Country of Broads, no matter our ethnicity or class. Don't kid yourself. A woman with an engagement ring so large it can only be looked at through a pinhole in a shoe box will, yes, register for a silicon…See More
