So, as many of you may or may not know, I am Daddywho. Yes, the poor, hapless, meat popsicle married to the always too smart for her own good Mamawho. Like many of you, I was here for the beginning of OS, and I too for a time was elevated into Made status in the Mafia. But, this week I am in phucking hell.
In an odd chance of fate, I somehow get paid to write but suck at it, while Mamawho, who can turn a phrase that makes rocks cry, does not. Even after much coaching, I still feel like those chain smoking chimps in the Ives play, clanging away at the keyboard in a feeble attempt to create Hamlet, but end up just flinging poop.
This week, I corrected my latest bad habit/mistake (hedging, i.e. writing around the problem, which is also called making shit up and avoiding the truth) only to have it chopped, or rather planted before national release. I gave them the Sahara, and the returned to me a rain forest. There's so many hedges, I don't even remember what the story was about in the first place. Oh yeah, RAPE. Because we don't say that, it's a dirty word, and that doesn't happen. Okay campers, soap box time:
1. When a guy gets shot in war, he is never questioned what the hell he was doing some place like that. If a woman is raped, they always question. Like she fing asked for it!
2. When a guy gets shot, he has a 10% chance of getting PTSD, when a woman is raped, she has a 56% of getting PTSD.
3. When a guy gets shot, he's a hero, gets a medal, and is looked up to. When a woman gets raped, she gets punished, questioned, and cast and eventually aside or out all together.
Last but not least, we just put a guy down. Slam dunk on all counts. Rape, sodimy, etc.etc. He was a good friend of the victim, got her drunk, and assaulted her. And yes, he had tried it before only with a different girl. The court gave him 4 MONTHS. That's 120 DAYS for RAPE. The following case, dude gets popped for dope (enough for maybe a dozen joints or so) and gets 6 MONTHS.
Welcome to my Hell...and how is your day?
Oh my god. Just witnessing all of that is fucking traumatic FF. I hope you're taking care of yourself.
