Response to geek tragedy (Reply #78)

83. I didn't say it trumped theirs...

I just get tired of the one upmanship that goes on here. Why can't someone just say damn that was some fucked up shit. Why; when it's a story about a man do you have to compare it to a woman. I am a woman. I am a rape survivor. I lived in a home with God awful domestic violence. I saw my mom shot in the face. I know all about PTSD. I don't feel the need to constantly do that. I'm secure enough in my womanhood that I don't need minimize something a man might have gone through by bringing up how difficult something has been for me or another woman.

You don't need to prove to me that women have had it hard/have it hard. I've lived that shit. Can a person just tell a story without having to fucking defend it. Jesus.

My personal experience is just that mine. Mine to tell. I wasn't trying to diminish anyone else's. I wasn't making light of anyone else's. I'd fucking appreciate if it wasn't done to me.

I will re-phrase my claim on custody to this. It's gotten easier for men to get custody of their children. Especially joint custody.
