This iReport is part of an assignment:
Surviving sexual assault: Your testimonies
- sarahbrowngb, CNN iReport producer
Like the vast majority of people who have been abused, we don't talk about it.
So if you don't mind...I'm going to keep that part to myself.
I'm getting highly offended by people from both political parties who are using a traumatic experience like rape to further their own agendas.
Yes, I know that Akin made the stupid comment. And he's Republican.
But just a few years back some equally as stupid liberals tried to pin a rape and murder charge of a FOXNews host Glenn Beck.
Both are beyond the pale and detestable.
Rape is a horrifying experience.
To use it to gain political favor is disgusting and offensive to those of us who've experienced an assault.
