ANDREA, WHAT ARE YOU THINKING?

"Marriage as an institution developed from rape as a practice. Rape, originally defined as abduction, became marriage by capture. Marriage meant the taking was to extend in time, to be not only use of but possession of, or ownership. "

That is the biggest piece of bullshit. Ever. Andrea is focusing on the wrong thing. Marriage isn't the problem, people.

Shouldn't the problem be access to medical information? Contraception? Saying that marriage is rape is such a primitive statements, and brings down feminism...because people then think ALL feminists think like that, and take us less seriosuly.

Maybe if people weren't so radical about feminism, we wouldn't be so ridiculed as a group. Marriage is a good thing. Abuse and rape are separate issues. Marriage, when equal is a good thing.
MARRIAGE DOES NOT EQUAL RAPE, AND AS A SURVIVOR OF RAPE, THIS OFFENDS ME!!!!
