Usually I hate things like this that are all about donating to a cause. I don't like people pushing their causes in my face. Unlike most things, this did make me sit up and take notice. Maybe it's because it's a personal situation (for her, not for me), and not just some abstract "stop world hunger" charity.

It's ridiculous how uneven our legal system is when it comes to the issue of rape. It's unbelievable how few rapists actually end up in prison (where they belong, for the rest of their lives). Personally I think rape is as bad as murder, if not worse, because a rape victim has to live with the memory of it for the rest of his or her life.

Usually I feel like grand injustices are useless to fight against because really, what can one person do? But this injustice has gone on too long, and someone needs to stop it.

Do I think this woman will be able to do it? I don't know. But if she succeeds, it may give hope to women and men suffering in silence, and I honestly think that makes it worth it.

(Sorry for soap-boxing.)
