Quote# 89266

Girls are literally owned by their rapist fathers. Families exist in order for men to be served by females — domestically, emotionally, and sexually. A lot of us haven’t realized until recently that such sexual service is required of daughters as well as wives, and that the rapists include all male family members as well as fathers. Combining the numbers of reported assaults with the many more unreported ones (especially knowing that many victims of rape by male relatives forget the attack, and others lack information to name it for what it is), we believe over 90% of all girls are victims of family rape. Of the many females we know who were raped as girls, none reported it to the authorities. The majority don’t tell what they know won’t be believed. And they’re also in fear for their lives. Most who did tell their mothers were not protected. Instead, the mothers defended and protected their husbands, sons, and other male relatives, and the attacks continued. The horror of living with rapists, sadists, and their collaborators — usually without the support of one person –means many little girls survive by forgetting the attacks and ultimately forgetting much of our/their own girlhoods. This mental and psychic colonization is even more powerful than males’ ownership of our bodies.

Just because your father was a piece of shit doesn't mean that every father that has ever lived is a rapist. These radical feminists are just as delusional and out of touch with logic as any religious fundie.

I'm amazed by such an incredible amount of total bullshit. It's equal to the amount that religious fundamentalists can pile up.

Well done.

"Radical"? More like "Farcical".

Repressed memories? Is this the 80's again? Come on, Bev Jo, catch up with reality.

It must be frightening, living in that nightmare-world inside your head.

In fairness, I have to point out she didn't actually claim to have the equivalent of five phd's. It was another lunatic, SheliaG, who said that in the comments. Bev Jo is still fucking crazy though.

I believe your "statistic" is a load of sexist horsecrap.

Yeah, family rape does happen, and yeah a lot of it goes unreported but it's nowhere near that common. And it happens to a lot of boys too, not just girls.

Also, the whole "repressed memories" thing is basically bullshit.
