My boyfriend 'sort-of' raped me. But I didn't break up with him - Monica Tan

(Oh, how I wish I could bring the whole article over. The entire thing is such an insight into the mind of the modern liberated western woman.)

The man and I had been fighting. We fought and then we made love, and as we did he said, “I want to come inside of you.” This was not dirty talk – it was a proposal. I told him not to, I didn’t want him to.

Translation: He provided the drama that I craved and I got wet. So rather than protect myself, I was more than willing to raw-dog him.

When he finished he said, “I did it, I came inside of you!” Then added, “fuck you” sticking his middle finger up at me. His face, pink with a slick of sweat, was full of fury and glee.

This is the behavior she puts up with, ladies and gentleman.

I don’t know how to write what happened next without sounding pathetic. All I will say is that it was an automatic reaction. It came on without consideration. I burst into tears. I ran into the shower, crying and said over and over again, “get it out of me”.

Which seems to beg the question again, why weren't you insisting on a condom? Would it have been any better if it had been an accident and he apologized profusely? No, it wouldn't have. You didn't even break up with him. The fact is that you liked the drama, and it only became "rapey" after he broke up with you.

Everything else is messy. I didn’t even break up with him afterwards. Even though we’d only been dating for a couple of months and fought all the time. He drank a bottle of wine a day, talked about how much he loved my vagina in public, and was plagued with mental ghosts that tortured him but, apparently, also bestowed him the ability to change people’s energies.

Just in case anybody thinks she didn't like his game, maybe he also "Chakra-raped" Ms. Tan...

A former slave's opinion on confederate monuments

When you see a Confederate flag, remember a former slave by the name of John F. Harris. In 1890, twenty-five years after the war, Mr. Harris was serving as a Mississippi representative in the House of Representatives. During his term, a bill came before the house to erect a monument to the Confederate soldiers of
Mississippi. Mr. Harris could have remained silent and coasted along the easy road of “political correctness,” but his burning bravery wouldn’t allow such cowardice. Here’s what he said when he took the floor:

“Mr. Speaker! I have risen here in my place to offer a few words on the bill. I have come from a sick bed . . . perhaps it was not prudent for me to come. But, sir, I could not rest quietly in my room without . . . contributing . . . a few remarks of my own. I was sorry to hear the speech of the young gentleman from Marshall County. I am sorry that any son of a soldier should go on record as opposed to the erection of a monument in honor of the brave dead.
And, sir, I am convinced that had he seen what I saw at Seven Pines and in the Seven Days’ fighting around Richmond, the battlefield covered with the mangled forms of those who fought for their country and for their country’s honor, he would not have made that speech. . . . When the news came that the South had
been invaded, those men went forth to fight for what they believed, and they made no requests for monuments . . . But they died, and their virtues should be remembered. Sir, I went with them. I too wore the gray, the same color my master wore. We stayed four long years, and if that war had gone on till now I
would have been there yet . . . I want to honor those brave men who died for their convictions. When my mother died I was a boy. Who, Sir, then acted the part of a mother to an orphaned slave boy, but my old missus? Were she living now, or could speak to me from those high realms where are gathered the sainted
dead, she would tell me to vote for this bill. And, Sir, I shall vote for it. I want it known to all the world that my voice is given in favor of the bill to erect a monument in honor of the Confederate dead.”


(Though there is no official record of the speech there was a John F Harris listed as an elected official from Washington county, Mississippi at that time, and the Clarion, a local newspaper, credited him with having given a rousing speech in favor of the monument that day before the bill was voted on and passed, the other items mentioned, such as he served alongside his master, the details attributed to the speech are accurate as far as can be told.)

Escambia County, FL...you can't spell Escambia without scam in the middle.

Escambia County commissioners come in two varieties. The ones that have been indicted and the ones that will be. In case you are wondering how much of a joke I'm telling, Jeb Bush had to step in and dissolve the county commission for blatant corruption a few years back.

While it is, as always, fun to point out a democrat being a total jackass, I do have ulterior motives. Escambia County tends to be one of those places the Democrats decry. It is the poorest county in the state and couldn't be more reliably republican...it is difficult to find a job that pays more than $10/hr. If the place were democratic, it would be basically the same men, just with Ds behind their name, some of them were Democrats in the recent past. Nothing of any significance would be changed.
