Week 4 Part 1
A quote from Telling says, “ Eighty percent of marriages don’t survive a rape… we note our amazement that our sexual relationship has not been disrupted.” (pg. 113). Patricia Francisco is talking about although she was raped she still maintains a healthy sexual life with her husband. This seems weird because most women are very traumatized by the experience and take a long to get comfortable sexually.Another quote says, “ I love some men. I love them dearly and deeply and passionately and madly. But I have no room for the artists, writers, directors, animators, and account executives who use women in their products as sexual object.” (pg. 116). Although she has began to get through what has happened to her Patricia still cannot stand people who degrade women and treat them with disrespect.
