SPEAKS OF PREJUDICES
RESPONSE TO RASA'S AUTOBIOGRAPHICAL WRITING:
You make a very good point about double standards, false fronts and people seeing only what they EXPECT to see. Expectations have made these savage idiots believe that they can swoop down on you and you will just let it happen. Many people have been put into this world to give injustice and illusions a rapid burial.
RASA: THANK GOD FOR THAT!
It matters not to them, that you have withstood strife or temptation, or what meaningful relationships you may have had in your life (your friend, the Green Beret). It's the same old eternal patriarchal DELIBERATE self-overestimation that leads them to believe they can stake the claim, "we have thwarted this bitch" (pure drivel) and conveniently shove you into a neat little category of their own perception and artifice.
RASA: THIS LETTER IS VERY GOOD FOR DISCUSSION OF THE ISSUES AND IT IS EXACTLY WHAT I WAS HOPING FOR. BUT EXCEPT FOR MY PERSONAL FRIENDS, YOU ARE THE FIRST ONE TO REACT TO IT. THANK YOU! WRITING IT MEANT SO MUCH TO ME!
Well, lo and behold, heck... she's got a shitload more stamina then we could have imagined and she refuses to go down! Actually, she keeps coming back up...woah.
RASA: THOMAS, THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON SINCE I WAS TEN YEARS OLD. MY MOM AND FAMILY TORTURED ME SO BADLY, I COULD HAVE DIED FROM IT AND BEEN AN EMOTIONAL CRIPPLE. BUT GOD GAVE ME STRENGTH. THESE ARE DEEP SCARS, MANY LAYERS, SCARS ON SCARS OF HUMAN EMOTIONAL, MENTAL PAIN. BUT I HAVE TO BE LIKE THAT TO CARRY THIS MISSION, TO HELP OTHERS. GOD USES ME AS THE CLAY PIGEON.
The problem is once one has persevered against this type of onslaught, one immediately becomes a "bad woman who won't fit" or similar adjectives (you probably have a list as large as mine, so I won't go into detail). That's where the fantasizing really starts to set in, "why won't she fit category xyz".
RASA: A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE CRITICAL OF HOW I FOUGHT BACK, I SHOULD BE MILD, A LADY, I SHOULD PULL MY PUNCHES, YADDA YADDA. THAT IS NOT HOW IT WORKS. WHEN GOD TELLS ME WE WILL WAR, WAR IT IS.
BUT AFTER ALL, IT IS ALL WORDS, WORDS WORDS. NO ONE GOT PHYSICALLY HURT, NEITHER MYSELF NOR THEY.
LOOK WHAT HAPPENS IN A REAL WAR. THE TORTURE, THE HORROR. THE REAL RAPE AND MUTILATION. 98% OF THE VICTIMS IN WAR ARE CIVILIANS, AND THERE IS ALWAYS CARNAGE AGAINST WOMEN AND CHILDREN. THIS HERE IS MILD STUFF. DID YOU EVER READ 'MEN, WOMEN AND RAPE' BY SUSAN BROWNMILLER?
This division, i've noticed occurs at what I would call, "the male locker-room level", where a hell of a lot of men start putting stipulated categories up, like "she's compliant" or "she's a bitch" and all else seems to get phased out in a blinding backwash of misogyny, with women being put into distinct physical/sexual or psychological categories. It boils down to "what level of servitude can be expected from THAT woman".
RASA: BOY, HAVE YOU SAID IT!
When a women who is psychologically discerned as fitting their construct of being "whore" refuses compliancy, protects the weak, the innocent and the unfortunate, also has the audacity to be proud of it and claim anointment by god, that's when myths are blasted and the testosterone level of "manhood" rises.
RASA: WHEN I WAS DOING TV SHOWS AS A 'FEMALE SUPREMACIST ' IN THE 90'S THE MALE AUDIENCE AND GUESTS GOT HYSTERICAL. APE-SHIT HYSTERICAL WITH CONFUSION, RAGE, DISBELIEF AND BEWILDERMENT. NO WOMAN HAD EVER STOOD LIKE THAT AND DECLARED WOMEN WERE SUPERIOR AND MEN WERE INFERIOR! THEY WENT NUTS ON ME! I THEN SAW THE RESULT OF SUCH A STANCE, BUT CERTAINLY DID NOT QUIT.
It shocks the hell out of them that you are simply there. You persist, resist and have rock solid principles, and they are mudraking. They begin to smell funny, appear as scoundrels or boisterous dregs (which they've probably been all along). Their objective was never actually to help or protect anyone, but simply to point the finger. It is easier to sit there stoic like Zeus on Mount Olympus and judge the world from lofty heights.
RASA: SO TRUE. AND THE ONES JUDGING ARE NOT JESUS, THEY ARE SINNERS. AND THE ONES THEY ARE JUDGING ARE NOT ALWAYS THE BAD ONES. USUALLY POOR, INNOCENT, MEAK LITTLE LAMBS WHO HAD NO OTHER WAY.
"The patriarchs have spoken, may the firmament resound with the peals of thunder".
Hahaha...These bozos see only "stripper", the "whore" and lose 70% of their field of view; reminiscent of pheasants during mating season. Everything else becomes secondary to them. It wouldn't matter if you had a PHD, were a brain surgeon or had scaled Mount Everest. (or were Superwoman, pass the kryptonite!)
She's a "stripper", aggghhh!!!
RASA: PREJUDICE IS BLINDNESS. REMEMBER 'GUESS WHOSE COMING TO DINNER'? THE GUEST WAS BLACK AND HE HAD A LIST OF CREDITS A MILE LONG, BUT HIS SKIN PUT HIM UNDER SUSPICION. BLACK PEOPLE TODAY CANNOT BE MADE FUN OF, BUT SEX TRADE WOMEN CAN. IT IS POLITICALLY CORRECT TO BEAT UP ON US. NO ONE WILL STOP YOU. NO ONE WILL CENSOR YOU - IT IS EXPECTED THE SLUT WILL FOLD UP AND LEAVE TOWN WHEN ASSAULTED. NOT THIS SLUT!
The wounded grow stronger!

RASA: I SAW THIS MOVIE A DOZEN TIMES! ONE OF MY FAVES! ISN'T GOD GOOD! HOW DID YOU EVER RECALL THE QUOTE VERBATIM?!
"Salieri: From now on we are enemies, You and I. Because You choose for Your instrument a boastful, lustful, smutty, infantile boy and give me only the ability to recognize the incarnation. Because You are unjust, unfair, unkind I will block You, I swear it. I will hinder and harm Your creature on Earth as far as I am able. I will ruin Your incarnation."
RASA: THANK YOU THOMAS! YOU ARE A GENTLEMAN AND A SCHOLAR!
