Rape victims are:
3 times more likely to suffer from depression.
4 times more likely to consider suicide.
6 times more likely to suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder.
13 times more likely to abuse alcohol.
26 times more likely to abuse drugs.
It is NOT a joke
It is NOT funny
And if you think it is I would love to hear you say that to one of the many men and women who are raped each year. I bet they would think it was really funny.
I don't think that someone being hurt, beat up, traumatized, abused, taken advantage of, and possibly robbed of their childhood is funny. So please, excuse my apparently lacking sense of humor.
Thank you to everyone for the faves and comments. Also I have been getting some questions so I hope this might answer a few of the most common ones:
I do know that not only women are raped. It just happens to be a woman that I wrote about in the poem.
Also, I know that many victims get past the state mentioned in my poem and go on to thrive in life. I wrote this poem because many people around this site seem to take rape as a joke. I wanted to show them that it was not funny in the least.
