Last Sunday I was getting ready for bed after a long day of un-packing and organizing. Kira (my kitty) always gets a few treats at bedtime. I reached over to grab her treat bag on my nightstand when my cell phone buzzed with a new message. Generally I turn my phone off at night so the new message alerts don’t wake me, I hadn’t done so yet. I grabbed my phone and saw there was a new comment on my blog. The message was from a person by the name of “Tim” , he commented on the blog post I wrote back in November 21, 2013. You can find that post under my archives for November titled “The Rape Story” , along with his full comment that I am going to approve.
I read his comment and was shocked, how can someone be so cruel? He took the time to read through the entire post and leave a sick comment. He lives in Fort Collins Colorado which would be 2:30am his time. He probably is one of those freaks that enjoys reading articles on the internet about women being raped. When I originally decided to share that horrible attack, I knew the story would attract sicko’s that delight in reading about rape. Rapists actually get aroused by such stories. My intention by sharing that part of my life that few knew about, was to empower women. I wanted to reach out to other rape survivors, let them know they are not alone. Women that are raped never can completely get over the horrific attack, but we can move on and reach out to others once we begin to heal. Many of us that have been raped stuff the trauma, and try to forget when we were attacked. Eventually for most, the attack will re-surface and haunt us if not dealt with and talked about. I can only speak for myself, all of us survivors have different coping mechanisms.
The jerk that left the comment not only probably delights in reading rape stories, but he is a racist. As soon as I read his comment on my blog , that was “pending approval” I visualized a angry white man that was clothed in white with a pointy white dunce cap. You get the picture, and yes I am talking KKK, white supremacist, ignorant, simple, uneducated, angry and heartless and quite possibly a rapist. Why would this ignorant man be reading a woman’s blog on WordPress at 2:30am? Only after reading to leave a hateful comment.
Right now you may be asking yourself, ” Why am I acknowledging this jerk and wasting my time writing about him and his nasty comment.” The reason is because the world is not rainbows and unicorns, these cruel people still exist, we all need to be aware of them. Racism is ever present and exists all around us. I have experienced racism in all of it’s ugly forms. In the work place, especially at my former place of employment back in Oregon.
I can’t tell you how many times I have heard the comment when someone has met my husband or child they would say, ” I have a black friend.” How completely stupid is that !! Awesome for you !! That’s like me meeting someone’s white husband and saying. ” I have a white friend.” Just plain dumb. That exact comment was made to me by one of the owners of the company I last worked for in Oregon.
So to the ignorant man that left the comment, it is very easy to hide behind your computer screen at XXXX Hidden Springs Road in Fort Collins, Colorado at 2:30am. I seriously doubt you would have the courage to sling your nasty words and hate to my face. Because you are a coward just like the rest of the KKK and white supremacists, back in the 60’s they didn’t have a computer to hide behind. But they hid themselves with sheets and did their dirty work at night, and they never stood alone they always made sure they had a couple other dunce’s with them. But God loves us all even you Tim.
Below is the message from this coward and yes I am going to approve it under my post from November and respond to him.
