Feeling much better today! Barely any pain in the morning but I went to see World War Z and now I'm back to feeling pain again. Darn.


And before you ask, no I'm not raped. (Phew, thank god). The reason I want to write a few lines (which might turn into several paragraphs) about rape is because of the book I just read (and I haven't finished it yet.) it's called Enslave by Cathy Yardley.

The book is a modern retelling of Beauty and the Beast. In this book beauty takes the name Nadia and the beast is called Dominic. Beauty is a children of a father of three daughters, who is also-- pardon my language-- an asshole. At the age of sixty, he managed to land on a second wife half his age and get her pregnant. Well, okay. Big deal? you'd say? The problem is, he CANNOT afford to pay for his family expenses. So how know what he'd do? He arranged his first two daughter's marriages to some rich ass for a certain sum of money, which is equivalent to SELLING them. Nadia is the youngest of all and also his favorite. So he loved her and didn't arrange her a marriage. Why? Because he TRADED her to some assholes for several days for money! YES! YOU READ IT RIGHT! HE SOLD HER TO SOME ASSHOLES FOR SEX FOR A CERTAIN PERIOD. Like a sex slave.

I was utterly and irrevocably enraged when I read about this. Trust me, I don't enjoy reading these books but I felt like I had to because this is how some of us, some less fortunate of us, have to live. Her first time was with some F***ed up doctor. A goddamn DOCTOR. He treated her like a rag. But she endured and never complained. She was willing because it was the only goddamn way they can survive. And oh, did I mention the fact that his father stole car for money? What kind of PERSON is he? Selling his daughter for money and stole cars? It's his stealing that got Nadia into trouble because he happened to steal the Beast's car and he came to take it back. Obviously Nadia striked a bargain with him that she would stay with him and he could do whatever he wants to her until the car is returned. And that's when the fairy tale begins.

I'd say that the book is great. But there's not a lot of plot to it. I've read through half of the book and all I could recall is the sex. I'm sure there are more than a handful of sex scences there. The plot moved every slowly and there are lots of foul language in there. Again, I want to finish this book because I want know Nadia has a happy ending.

The one thing that's twisted and "messed up" about this book is that the sex is very wild. It involves the use of toys and-- above all-- lesbian sex. I skipped that part. Couldn't bare to read it. I grossed me out. But I have to say that it's relevant to the plot.

I'm not going to rate this book. It's not something I'd like to recommend.

The reason why I mentioned it is because it made me question what will happen when a girl is raped? In Nadia's case, it's not really rape but she's unwilling. She didn't want it to happen. To me, raping should be a felony. The rapist should be tortured before being shot in public at the area where he commited the crime. NO ONE has the right to touch a woman in that violent manner. NO ONE. So girls, I am on your side. I know it is horrible but hang in there. I just want to let you know that somewhere out there, someone actually cares. Let me know if there's anything I can do for you. Just leave a comment and I'll get back to you. For now here's the hot line for you to contact:

Remember, suicide is never the answer. You need to stay strong. You need to reveal that beast to the world. I am with you, my friends.
