Wow! What a lot of comments in the past few days!
Firstly, I want to thank you all for your fabulous support in regards to the medication issue, and for sharing your experiences with the issue. To my friends who read on Facebook, and those who read here: your advice, thoughts and experiences are truly invaluable. I start them tomorrow: wish me luck!
As for the comments on my post "NO means NO...and other abuse truths"... I appreciate Melissa, JM, and Shadowspring coming forward your support, stories etc in this matter. I would also like to give a shout out to the fantastic Free Jingerians... ;-) you guys rock!!
To Anna: you want my readers to see a true representation of Rebekah's views, gained through a thorough reading of her blog and comments? I gave the direct link so that my readers could do just that: and I believe, many, if not all, read through her post and comments. And ALL agreed with my conclusions, as brief and generalised as they were.
I will give full credit to Rebekah for opening up her comments to naysayers and opposite views. But does that make her humble? No. Her words speak louder than her actions here in the virtual universe. And her words say things which I find reprehensible, particularly about her fellow women. By even partially blaming them for the actions of rapists (like Ted Bundy), she feeds a society that blames the victims, and thus postpones and minimises the just sentences these abusive characters deserve. I found her post (and replies) to be so triggering (I have a major increase in panic attacks/night terrors/mood swings) that I cannot comment on her actual blog any longer after today. I am not the only person to feel this way: and I won't be the last.
