Yeah, ’cause when we die, all that’s left of us here on this planet besides whatever physical remains their are are the stories people tell.
If your life story is summed up as “Raped.” well… that’s not the best story to leave behind I suppose.
I’d take rape over death as well. There’s therapy. There’s medicine. There’s drinking, drugs, entertainment and all sorts of coping mechanisms. But when you’re dead, well, you’re dead.
Oh absolutely. I’m not justifying rape. Anything that leads to PTSD/shell-shock/anything that gives you flashbacks whenever you close your eyes, is in the category of “A Very Bad Thing”.
They’re in the realm of “a fate worse than death”.
I’m sympathetic to all people who are traumatized for whatever reason.
I was just speaking for myself regarding rape/vs/death. Some people chose suicide after being rape or other traumas like surviving war – and I’m sympathetic. I just like ife and have gone through a lot to get _here_ and I want to continue as long as possible smile emoticon But I can’t speak for other people.
