You know, we actually have plenty of eivdence throughout history to make clear that the "civilized" world has always been this way when it comes to these things.

In fact, it has gotten better -- bear in mind that rape and child abuse did not used to be crimes until pretty recently in history. rape, in fact, was laargely popularized during wars, as it was common practice to rape women during battles.

And children have long been abused. Thankfully, it is now the minority who call child abuse "discipline."

I really did not Know that I always knew rape & abuse have always been around but now that I think about it I can see how alot of it did not get reported since I did not tell what happened to me until a couple of weeks ago.


Thanks Miz scarlet
