You are free to have your take on rape and make statements about your take on rape. I never said anything in my response about rape itself. I never even said I had received negative responses to anything I said about rape. I analyze and conduct research for a living as such can make comments within capacity of a disinterested commentator.

Some women are beginning to address the serious analyses that needs to be done to address the rape situation in the United States. But if men were to say the things these women are saying people, most especially women and men like yourself would call for their heads.

I am a good guy. You can choose not to believe it, that is your choice. When candidates for President say they are right for the job nobody says that they are being proud. I was a monogamously faithful man for 19 years of married life, 13 post wedding, with four beautiful children to show for it. I dated one woman only prior to my first marriage, the same woman I allude to in the marriage I just enunciated in the preceding sentence. Within context of the matter under discussion, that is objective evidence of a good guy.

The first step to being good is to believe in goodness and declare you aim to be good then make the effort to be good. When your efforts are successful, you can state you are good.

You can disagree, that is entirely within your purview.

An “I am judging your declaration in my words even though I do not know you” attitude simply is misuse of opportunities for building community within context of social media.

The slogan in a movie I recently watched is relevant, which is

When it lies within your power, why make enemies when you can make friends?
