    you were speaking for yourself.thats why l said that.empathy doesnt already mean agreeing.

    you get lost in details lizzie there is an other option as you see which l put in the poll for you all to make your own explanations

    Your question was EXTREMELY vague...lizzie's questions were both logical and more or less exactly what mine would be.

    Or they stay silent because they aren't really victims of anything, but claiming rape is a nicer story than "oh I got drunk and hooked up with this guy who won't call me, and now I regret it so I'm just going to say I was raped."

    Yep. If a man got raped by a woman they'd be calling up their buddies, "Guess what the hell just happened to me, dawg?"

    thanks for voting.
    If a woman takes money for sex, doesn't that make her a hooker? And if a guy takes money for someone to have sex with his woman, doesn't that make him a pimp?

    Since I don't believe in prostitution, I voted "no."

    Are you referring to a legal issue, or a private and personal one?

    She means.... if you were raped and your rapist offered to pay you to shut up about it, would you take the money or not?

    That was her question.

    l dont know but many of you pretend to misunderstand simple questions.

    am I supposed to ask whether you would sell your honor or not.would it be more clear but offensive ?

    I could care less how many voted. I have often been bored and just voted for something when I was not sure (or really cared much) what the poll was.

    Plus, you have had eight responses so far and at least 2 people who read the poll did not know what you meant...which is about 25%. So your poll question could not have been THAT clear.


    Whatever, the fact is your question was incredibly vague.

    You don't agree...so be it.
