Scott walker NOT running for office in Wisconsin. He will be based out of the state.

Rage quit.

I was playing chinese checkers with my 8 year old grandson yesterday. It had been years, so I looked up the rules. He did not like the rules, got angry and went into the bedroom to have a snit. When he came out I asked him why he left.

Booma, he says as that is what he calls me, I had to rage quit. The way things are going, I think I would like to do that as well.

Trigger warning - rape

I have never been raped or sexually assaulted. I consider myself very lucky. Because I know a whole lot of women who have been.

A roommate by her uncle. A friend by her father. A fellow manager. My doctor. A girl who worked for me by someone else who worked for me. My exes daughter by a friend of his. They all talked to me about it. I don't know if this is normal. The first person who opened up to me when we were 22.

I asked my husband how many women have told him about being raped. He said one.

I am reading about the girls these rich men have been raping, everyone wondering why no one stopped them. My friend who was raped by her father had told her mother. Her mother did not believe her. My roommate never told anyone. Who would she tell? She said her family would not believe her.

I read the ops about Epstein. Kavanaugh. Border guards. Trump.

I read about judges letting young men off rape charges. I read about politicians shaming women. Professors claiming the female body will not allow her to be raped.

The other day I heard a female reporter ask the doj about the women who were raped by Epstein. Taking about 14 to 15 year olds. These were girls, not women. I have seen ops in du where men still think it is ok to talk about women and what they wear.

So, for those who are reading this and have been raped or assaulted.

I am so so so sorry that you have to relive it.

The rest of us need to be aware and be careful what we are writing.

And it needs to stop. Rape is always bad. Rape of children is beyond bad. And it needs to be stopped. Not only are churches and justices not stopping it, they are enabling it.
We, as a society, will have to figure it out.

Think about your friends. Know that some have been raped. Also know that some may have been the rapists. It's time to stop it.
