  •  She is NOT trivializing rape.... (10+ / 0-)

    ....any more than someone saying, "I've been hit by a bus and survived, so I can handle a minor accident."

    Or "I've beaten cancer twice, so I'm not worried about the cosmetic surgery."

    No way does that trivialize getting hit by a bus or beating cancer. It trivializes the minor accident and the cosmetic surgery.

    Get it?

      again, I don't think it trivializes it, but it must compare a political campaign to rape for your comparisons to be apt.

      I see what you did there.

    •  A campaign is voluntary, rape is involuntary... (0+ / 0-)

      so no, I don't get it.  Rape should never be tolerated and comparing a voluntary act to an involuntary act is just wrong.  
      She has taken on a very big fight against organized rape in African countries and for that I have the utmost respect and admiration for her.  She will make a great Senator and I look forward to supporting her during her campaign as much as possible.

      The more you learn the less you know.
