    SNIP:


    By Robin of Berkeley
    When I was in college, I read a book that changed my life. It was Susan Brownmiller's tome, Against Our Will: Men, Women, and Rape, which explained rape as an act of power instead of just lust. What I found particularly chilling was the chapter on war -- how rape is used to terrorize a population and destroy the enemy's spirit.


    While edifying, the book magnified the vulnerability I already felt as a female. Fear of rape became a constant dread, and I sought a solution that would help shield me from danger.


    The answer: seek safe harbor within the Democratic Party. I even became an activist for feminist causes, including violence against women. Liberalism would protect me from the big, bad conservatives who wished me harm.

    I remember the book well - but was never able to accept a lot of the goings on back during the 60s - apparently all the protests, marches, bra burning, etc. scared the crap out of me more than it enlightened me.

    Funny...if the author of the OP thinks "sexism" is a one party fault she's an idiot.
