"Mystery bores me. It chores me. I know what happens and so do you. It's the machinations that wheel us there that aggravate, perplex, interest, and astound me. There are many things to think of. There is much story.”

Topic: #MeToo on Lush
Posted: 20 Oct 2017 16:11

#me too
I've talked about this in project semicolon and will share with you here. I talk about what happened to me to anyone that wants to listen because I want them to know I will listen and i will believe them.
The first time I can remember I was about 7 years old and I had no clue what was going on. I had a blind fold on and was "playing a game" what I know now is I was giving this person a blow job and in between he would put pepperoni in my mouth and tell me to bite down. I had no idea what was going on I trusted this person. This abuse went on until I was 18. When I was about 12 years old I told my mom and as he said my mom didn't believe me. This was my stepdad and I trusted him and loved him. He took my virginity when I was about 10. At that time I had to move out and live with a friend for awhile. Everyone made me feel like it was my fault. I lived with him until I joined the navy and then again when I came home.
His father started his abuse a bit different. He would play porn when I would sleep at his house. I was so young and he would play it when no-one was around. Later he would stand in Windows and jerk off while I was playing on the jungle gym in the yard coming out of the shadows when he knew i could see him. He would touch me and play with my breasts then later take me to toys r is to buy a new Barbie. If I told everyone would fight and no-one would talk to me. He died when I was 12 I was physically free from him but the emotional scars last forever.
I was an over developed teen as in when I was 10 I could pass for 21. I was one of those girls who went from training bra to a c-cup. guys would whistle, honk, stop me on the street every time I walked past. I would hate having to walk to the store for my mom because these guys would sit on their porch and watch. I stopped telling my mom things when she didn't believe me.
My first consensual sex was with a guy who only wanted to use me. After that I would look for me and ask me for a blow job when I refused he called me a slut and whore.
My husband thinks it's foreplay to grab my chest in front of people. He does it in front of my kids and friends. I don't say a word anymore. My silence doesn't mean I like it just that I've been beaten down by everyone I've ever trusted in my life. I've been to counseling as well as tried to take my own life to forget this but it doesn't go away. I don't think about it but it pops up when I least expect it. A smell, a sound, a touch I can be right back there. I hope speaking out, telling people about it let's them know don't stop telling find someone who will listen. I wish I did.

You do not deserve this. You deserve so much better.

People who would prey on a child deserve a special place in hell. You entered adulthood with a deficit and people took advantage of that. Your story is heartbreaking. Thank you so much for having the courage to share it.

Topic: #MeToo on Lush
Posted: 20 Oct 2017 16:02

Me too :(

This is also going around facebook. I haven't been brave enough to own up on there because of family members, especially my Uncle who I've recently connected with will ask me about it, and I don't like to talk about any of that, especially not with him, so I've kept quiet on there.

I was raped by someone who was supposed to love and protect me.

There are different stakes for different people with #MeToo. Thank you so much for sharing here.

Bernie is in that club now, too. He made enough money last year that he's joined the 1%. Which I imagine is pretty odd for him.

Topic: Quoting two different posts in your response
Posted: 20 Oct 2017 09:52

I know how to quote someone's post and respond to it. Could someone please explain to me how to quote two different posts in that one response. Thanks in advance.

I do know how to do this one!

It's all in the code. So, you can quote one person, open another window, quote the second person, and then copy and paste that into your first response. It will notify both people that they have been quoted.

The other way is to copy and paste the thing you want to quote then put the [quote=username (then close the bracket) at the beginning and end with [/quote (then close the bracket)

Does anyone know how to do a quote within a quote? That's one I haven't figured out yet.

Topic: Harvey Weinstein
Posted: 20 Oct 2017 09:41

Then read the words I wrote. I did not suggest that labeling them as predators and rapist was victim shaming. What I did write was "Are we victim shaming there?", and that was a rhetorical question, to which the obvious answer was "no". My initial post about this was generalising too much, I'm not afraid to admit that, but in my later posts I repeatedly clarified than I wasn't talking about the victims in general but about people for whom money was the main and possibly only motivation to remain silent about Weinstein.

And why would you assume that this is true for even one of the eleven women who got a monetary settlement? That they weren't actually traumatized, but used this as an excuse to take money from a rich man. And they gave zero fucks for the women who came after. Why go there, when there isn't even a hint from anyone that this is what's happened?

Topic: Harvey Weinstein
Posted: 20 Oct 2017 08:31



You and Trinket need to own your words. You wrote them in black and white. I am not the only person who understood them as I did. You have been shown at best to be not just misinformed and wrong in your views, but at worst blaming the victims rather than the perpetrators and attaching venal motivations to them. You should read your comments carefully and edit them before you post them because they will be read and taken at their face value. No one has misunderstood you or twisted your words. You wrote them. We read them. You have no basis for complaining.

I agree with this.

Topic: Writing mistakes and how to fix 'em
Posted: 20 Oct 2017 06:33

You can tell this guy writes thrillers.

"Threat of death" hanging over every scene? Maybe in some genres, but I don't think that is universal. And expanding the definition of "death" the way he does is stretching. In a thriller, you need this for sure. I'm just not sure you need this in, say, an erotic romance. Will they or won't they is not "threat of death" in any sense, IMHO.

Something unexpected in every scene? Not sure that's realistic. And sometimes predictibility has its place in moving things along. Again, a must in a thriller but I'm not sure it's as universal as he says.

The stuff on marshmallow dialogue and lost love is bang on, though. I wrestle with both.




I think "threat of death" is an overstatement. I think the author is trying to make the point that you need to have tension throughout the story.

So, for example... the first Fifty Shades of Gray book is better than the other two because of tension. Will she/won't she works there. In books two and three she took away that tension and tried to fill it with contrived plots (ambushed helicopters, crazy ex-submissives, a truly perplexing ex-lover) and it just didn't work for me. The tension had been released and we weren't getting it back.

I think I would replace "something unexpected" with "something interesting". Then I could agree with the statement for writing in general.


Topic: Harvey Weinstein
Posted: 20 Oct 2017 06:02

I'm not suggesting that any victim is complicit in their own abuse. Like I said before (on another thread): becoming a victim if sexual abuse or assault is NEVER your fault. It should not happen, whatever the circumstances and whatever you did.

But that should not stop us from acknowledging that victims can do wrongful things too. Again, I'm not talking about those victims who cannot or dare not open up about their abuse. I'm talking about those who can, but choose instead to use that ability to gain financially rather than stop the predator. That was the premise of Trinket's post, wasn't it; she spoke of victims who went to their lawyers with the intention to make a financial deal with their abuser. If that was true for any of the eleven she mentioned, I don't know, none of us probably do, but if it was, they are who I am talking about.

Over the past two weeks more than forty women have come forward who claim to be Weinstein's victims. It probably is just the tip of the iceberg but consider this, assuming the number eleven is correct:
If it was Weinstein's MO to pay off women for their silence one would expect many more financial deals than just the eleven mentioned. It is not unlikely that the initiative for at least some of those deals came from the victims rather than from Weinstein.

Weinstein probably wasn't one of them, but many sex offenders started out as victims of abuse themselves, and their behaviour is often the result of their traumas. In spite of that we do not hesitate to condemn them and to call them rapists, predators or abusers. Are we victim shaming there? If not. then why is it victim shaming to call out someone who made a conscious choice to hide someone's criminal behaviour in exchange for money. How doesn't that choice make them accomplice to the crimes it allows the offender to commit in the future?

I don't understand this mentality. At all.

Weinstein, I'm guessing, didn't pay off women unless they came forward in some way. Since the entire culture of Hollywood told them not to do that, I don't think eleven brave souls is hard to believe.

The premise of Trinket's post was that these women went to their lawyers rather than the police. And then she judged them for it, saying they "took the money and ran". God forbid that a woman go to a place where her conversation is confidential and the consequences of her actions can be reviewed before she does them.

And no, when a person who was raped spreads that evil, it isn't victim shaming. There's a new victim, now.
