I'm sorry...

I hope I didn’t offend anyone with my previous post. I felt I had to address this, because it was bothering me that because girls are giving in to pressures (from either friends, teachers, men, etc.) we automatically blame the other parties. I’ve been naïve and succumbed to flattery, and I assumed it. I still do.

I’m not saying rape doesn’t occur. I know it does. I’m not saying older men don’t charm young girls. I know they do. I’m only saying that sometimes, things aren’t what they seem.

If I offended anyone, please accept my apologies, it really wasn’t my intention.

I love blog posts that make me think! Keep 'em coming!

Your post are very thought provoking and you don't have anything to apologize for. Hey, if I don't have the nerve to leave a comment here, I'll email it to you, like yesterday.

Please don't feel sorry for your post. We all blog for our own reasons.

Love ya!
Tracey

Please don't take my silence on this as having taken offense. This is a very weighty issue, and I agree with you in some ways, but it's been a crazy week and I wanted to post when I had time to ponder a bit.

Your blog, your posts. If someone doesn't like it, the X is in the upper right-hand corner. :-)

No need to apologize. I wasn't offended, but, unlike Monkey, I hate thinking. As you know, when it comes to blogging my motto is: meerkat!

grumpy said...

Agreed - no need to apologise - I think you discussed the matter in an open minded and well thought out way. As a teacher, I see teens act in ways in that area that show they know very much what they are doing and what they want - if they get it with someone of their own age it is 'fine' but when it is with someone who 'should know better' well....whole can of worms!

Monkey: Will do!

GEM: I guess my need to please overtook me! ;-)

Marius: No rush!

Barb: Oh yeah, I remember that X - thanks! ;-)

flurrious: Yeah meerkat, I know...

grumpy: First, let me welcome you to my world - happy to see you here. Second, thank you. Hope to see you around again!

Well I'm sure you've noticed that I'm pretty hardcore on the issue of rape. But nevertheless, I'm not at all offended at you writing that post. You tend to write things in a spirit of enquiry, so if I disagree or have a different perspective (which I kind of do and kind of don't on this one) I'll just say so. As Barbara said, your blog, your post!
I only just saw it now though and I haven't responded yet, but I will.

Hey Stinky,

I am writing as anonymous for obvious reasons.

I was in no way offended and in fact agreed with most of what you wrote. The line gets fuzzy sometimes, a 16 year old with a 22 year old for instance.

As a parent, you have to be vigilant even when it is not the popular thing or easy thing to do.

I am a vigilant parent, I check cell phones and email accounts and always try to know where my kids are, however that doesn't always help.

Right now, we are dealing with something like this, except it is an adult woman and my 13 year old son. She has been arrested and we are dealing not only with the legal issues but also with the sterotypes of what a predator is. We are also dealing with the guilt he feels, because he liked her and didn't "feel" forced.

I like posts that make me think as well! Flurrious made me laugh with the meerkat!

Stinkypaw said...

cinn: I sure do know how you feel about rape, and I respect that. Like I do the fact that you express yourself, I actually really enjoy this.

Annon: Sorry to read you're going thru this, I'm sure it's not easy. BTW, I do understand what your son is going thru, believe me, it's not easy to cope with those feelings. Best of luck.

greenduckies: Flurrious is funny!
