This Signed Showed Up In North Carolina

Whatever!!! Sexism at it’s best. Let’s see a REAL MAN DOES NOT RAPE. A REAL MAN STANDS UP FOR THOSE THAT HAVE BEEN RAPED. A REAL MAN STANDS UP FOR CHILDREN WHO ARE RAPED. A REAL MAN STANDS UP FOR THOSE THAT ARE RAPED AT UNIVERSITY. A REAL MAN STANDS UP FOR THOSE IN THE MILITARY WHO ARE RAPED, RETALIATED AGAINST, BETRAYED, KICKED OUT WHILE RAPISTS KEEPS HIS DAMN CAREER. A REAL MAN STANDS UP TO DOMESTIC VIOLENCE. A REAL MAN STANDS UP TO HUMAN TRAFFICKING. A REAL MAN DOES SOMETHING ABOUT PORN, GENTLEMEN BARS, AND ETC. A REAL MAN KICKS ABUSERS BUTTS. A REAL MAN WOULD MAKE SURE RAPE LEGISLATION IS PASSED. A REAL MAN WOULD STOP THE VICTIM BLAMING. A REAL MAN WOULD NOT TELL A WOMAN THAT HER WORTH ONLY COMES FROM HAVING DAMN BABIES AND BEING SUBMISSIVE TO HIS ASS. A REAL MAN IS NOT AFRAID TO COOK FOR HIS FAMILY. A REAL MAN WOULD LET A WOMAN BE WHO SHE WANTS TO BE AND NOT TELL HER THAT HER JOB IS TO STAY AT HOME.

I do not need a man. I do not need a man telling me that I am only here to have his babies, being used for sex, and that a woman’s job is to have babies, clean his damn house and not have a damn career.

SCREW MEN. IF I WANT TO LIVE MY LIFE WITHOUT A DAMN MAN THEN THAT IS MY CHOICE. NO DAMN GOVERNMENT IS GOING TO TELL ME TO MARRY. NO DAMN MAN IS GOING TO DEGRADE ME!! NO DAMN CHURCH IS GOING TO TELL ME THAT MY WORTH ONLY COMES FROM BEING SUBMISSIVE TO A DAMN MAN.

TO ME AND FOREVER, MEN ARE NOTHING BUT ABUSERS AND I WILL NEVER TRUST THERE ASSES EVER!!!!

 

Born a Girl


Born With a Vagina,
I was given the label of girl,
I was taught to dress a certain,
I was taught to follow what my mom did,
I was told that I was supposed to wear dresses,
That I was supposed to do house work,
That I was supposed to be skinny,
That I was supposed to wear makeup,
That I was supposed to play with certain toys
Such as Barbie dolls, house, care bears, girl toys,
And that I was only to be interested in girl things,
That I was not supposed to be good at science or math,
Once I became I tomboy I no longer fit into what
Society wanted me to be since I was born with a Vagina,
I wanted to climb trees, play basketball, football, baseball,
Ride bikes, get dirty, and play war there was something
wrong with me and I had to be shown where
I belonged in society,
I had to be taught a lesson that is when Ryan
showed me what porn was, what violence was,
And raped me,
Then I was threatened that I would be killed if I told anyone,
My friend told his mom and his mom called my mom,
I was then grounded to the yard and told to just
Forget about what happened to me

I was told that since I had been born with a Vagina that
I was only here to be raped and that the laws do not apply
To girls that have been raped.
As I grew up, I still did not fit into what society wanted
Me to be because I wanted nothing to do with being a woman
I wanted nothing to do with wearing dresses,
I wanted nothing to do with wearing makeup and having long hair,
I wanted nothing to do with sex or my sexuality
Then two black men raped me when I was intoxicated and could
Not consent,
Then I was once again told by Female Police Officer that I deserved
What they did to me because I was drinking underage and that
Entitled two black me to rape me.
Then the University of Cincinnati sent me to be evaluated for a mental
Health disorder instead of doing anything to the two black
Men that raped me,
I became suicidal and wanted to die and I tried to kill myself
Once again I was told that since I have a Vagina that I am some how
Weaker and do not matter as much as men.
That is was perfectly fine to be raped by two men,
After all that was what I was born for since
I was born with a Vagina and men were entitled to rape me
And the laws do not apply to me.
Then when I was 23, I was raped again and did not bother
To make a police report,
I knew that no one would do a damn thing
Then when I was 25 I was raped by a third class petty officer
Twice in the same day,
I did not say anything until the next day when a friend
Asked me what was wrong
She went and told the chain of command
They took me to have rape exam done at Wilford ER,
OSI came and talked to me,
The chain of command blamed me for being raped,
Master Chief said, “We believe you but there is not a damn thing
We can do about it. Here’s your orders to your next command. Promise
Me that you will go to counseling.
Then the retaliation started,
I was not allowed to go to counseling at rape crisis center,
I was told that I was lying,
I was told that I was fat,
I was told that I was nothing more than a walking mattress
That deserved to be raped
My career was ruined and I was given code of JFT erroneous enlistment
Then in 2013 when he straight up admitted to raping me they still did
Nothing.
I was told that, “We have to investigate you. We have to know who
All you have slept with. About any other reports that you
Have made. We do not care what he said in his email to you.
So once again I was told that since I was born with a VAGINA
That I am nothing
That rape is fine and we do not give a damn about you
That rape is not against the law and we only protect rapists.

Feeling Unheard, A poem from The Journey Back to Myself: A Book of Healing Poetry

Feeling unheard,

Feeling unseen,

Feeling disrespected,

Was at counseling appointment,

Therapist looked at me and told me to

Stop writing my poetry and not to talk about

Being raped.

Writing my poetry is the way

I get out what I am feeling,

I am not good at talking about what happened,

I immediately left my body and shutdown,

I came home, got my blanket, turned on calming music

And started crying.

When therapist said that to me, I immediately heard

What Ryan said to me,

What my mom said to me,

What the two guys at UC said to me,

What the police officer said to me,

What Josh said to me,

What Damon said to me,

What chain of command said to me,

What NCIS said to me,

I went to bed early,

Used aromatherapy,

Cried myself to sleep.

I am still feeling distant, detached from myself,

I do not trust anyone.

Afraid to say anything anymore.

Will not be reaching out anymore.
