I apologize if I am sometimes late in posting a response, but I really do try to read your posts and respond to your comments. This year my main focus will be on drawing awareness to the ‘Abuse of Women‘ worldwide.
Rape and Abuse
The rape and subsequent death of a twenty-three year old-young woman in India last December was a real eye-opener which drew the attention of the world. This incident however is just a tip of the iceberg. The callous and inhumane treatment of women around the world must be addressed. The stories of rape and other forms of abuse need to be told. The way men think about and view women need to change.
I use the term, men loosely, because real men protect and defend women. I think it is time to find another name for those who rape and abuse women. I have racked by brains for a word, but all I could come up with is slime-balls, so slime-balls it is. We seem to have too many of these slime-balls roaming the earth, preying on defenseless women. These slime-balls are physically, morally and intellectually inadequate. They obviously lack self-esteem and confidence in themselves to be able to get a woman, so to makeup for their inadequacies they rape and abuse defenseless women. When six men see nothing wrong in raping a young woman, inserting rods in her to the point where it damages her internal organs, then something is seriously wrong.
The time has come for us to start taking out the garbage. The clean up campaign must begin. Heads of governments need to get their act together. It is time for more action and less talk. We must begin to rid our societies of slime-balls and put them behind bars where they belong.
