no…words from a rape victim…me

no i do not
but
yes you do
my body is mine
it does not belong
to you.
my soul and spirit
are not for the taking
what is this horror
that you are making
yes you hurt me
perhaps i will heal
but for the rest of my
life,
this rape will be
all too real.

    Thanks for sharing this. The analogy is very clear to us vegans. I hope non-vegans will get the message too.

      Objectifying any living being for the justification of their exploitation is violation of the worst sort,

    It is terrible to hear this dialogue… this world is so painfully screwed. Actually, I didn’t know that “rape” is legally OK… I always thought that is persecuted by law. There’s so much wrong going on, and it seems a utopian desire to wish great changes, but I’m a dreamer and I pray for it.
