Of course I donít want to trivialize rape. It remains a violent, ugly and degrading act. It has the potential to destroy lives. But only if we allow it to.

What I'm doing, condemning myself for falling when I tried to reach for hope and happiness, not knowing any better, well, thatís not any less despicable. It's as violent and ugly and degrading as any of the many sins perpetrated against human beings.

Worse: I am not allowing myself any reprieve from the experience. I am my own victim and my own perpetrator.

I am daily raping myself.
