Marsha Singer, it's predictable but still sad to see such nasty comments here in response to your essay. Greg starts out with an ad hominem (ad feminem?) attack. (Greg, Marcia's essay was not "mind numbing". Your mind was numb long before you read it.) Suzanne Smith's manifestly black-and-white thinking leads her to attack you for presenting a nuanced view. LAD's accusing you of defending rape shows how thoroughly her/his emotional response has distorted his/her understanding of what you really said.
While I disagree with your condemning and shaming of "condemning and shaming" (and encourage you to examine the irony of that), I otherwise appreciate your nuanced view, and I appreciate even more your willingness to state it publicly, knowing that you'd be attacked for it. As a frequently outspoken independent thinker (and recent Open Mic writer) myself, I can empathize!
