  •  Another interesting statistic is that (6+ / 0-)

    99% of alcoholic women have a history of early sexual abuse.  The number is probably the same with alcoholic men, but the reporting is far lower.  

    There are also analyses of people suffering from bi-polar disorder, depression, and anxiety disorders that show extremely high numbers of sexual assault victims.  The earlier the assault/rape, the more severe the mental illness.

    Imagine a world without sexual predators, and you'd see a world with far less addiction, far less violence, far less child neglect, far fewer people needing psychiatric and medication support.  Mental health and addiction issues are major causes of homelessness.

    Think about what it costs humanity in dollars, time, lost creativity, lost functionality.  This seems to be a price we're willing to pay in order to live in the comfort of ignoring the problem.  Pretty sick IMO.

    I'm not looking for a love that will lift me up and carry me away. A love that will stroll alongside and make a few amusing comments will suffice.
