Convicted Rapist Supporter Hold Event For V-Day

According to VDAY.org: "V-Day is a global movement to stop violence against women and girls. V-Day is a catalyst that promotes creative events to increase awareness, raise money and revitalize the spirit of existing anti-violence organizations. V-Day generates broader attention for the fight to stop violence against women and girls, including rape, battery, incest, female genital mutilation (FGM) and sexual slavery."

Now that is a nobel cause, however, in my situation there is a great hypocrisy.........

A local theatre company is putting on " The Vagina Monologues" and donating the proceeds to a an organization that fights violence against women...........

That also seems like a nobel cause, however, the group has decided to hold it at the establishment that I and my convicted rapist used to spend a large amount of time together at, now does that really mean anything? Not Really.........but wait!!!

The theatre company is holding this event at this establishment that has my convicted rapist on there MySpace website as a friend................NOW DOES ANYONE SEE ANYTHING WRONG WITH THAT? BUT WAIT......................

I spoke to the executive director of the organization that the funds are going to and let her know that my convicted rapist is on the website of where they are going to hold the play. NOW SHOULD THAT MAKE A DIFFERENCE TO AN "EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR" ........YES..........BUT WAIT.................

After I spoke with her, her response was I understand that the location might be upsetting to you......well yes it is..........BUT THAT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH IT!

She also said that unfortunately her organization has no choice where the production was going to be and if they choose to support the convicted rapist, it is out out her hands. NOW DOES ANYONE SEE WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE?

If not let me sum it up............... A theatre company is holding "The Vagina Monologues" for an organization that fights violence against women, at an establishment that has a convicted rapist on the site for VDAY, and they know about it!!! NOW DOES ANYONE THINK THAT IS A PROBLEM?

On a last note, that same "organization" that fights violence against women was suppose to show up an be there for me in the hospital during the rape kit....................NO ONE CAME!!!!!!!


NOW IS THERE A PROBLEM? YOU TELL ME? AND IF YES, WHAT DO YOU SUGGEST I DO?

And, by the way, this is a bad "executive" decision in my opinion, I would not want this person running a business!
