There is a word that we really need removed from our normal conversations which is “raped” people throw the word raped around too casually. Have you ever played video games online & listened to the way people talk to each other? “Aw dude you just shot me in the back. you raped me.” I’m pretty sure if I sat down with a woman who has been through that horrific situation & said “can you describe what that was like going through this?” she’s not gonna look at me & go “Have you ever played Halo? It’s like getting hit in the face with a gravity hammer by a camper” or “you ever get an estimate on a automobile repair & you go to pick up your car & it’s double, it’s just like that.”
