Top 10 Stupidest Comments
Posted 31 January 2003 - 01:32 PM
My hubby, when I told him I thought they had probably raped me but I wasn't sure (I'm a repressor):
"I doubt it -- people don't actually do things like that when they're young."
-- how stupid is that?
My mother, when I told her about their abuse:
"Don't tell me you got yourself ruined"
-- yeah, I'm completely garbage now, Mom, thanks for reminding me.
My hubby again, a few months ago, when I was feeling down about what happened:
"I guess we'll be going without dinner tonight"
-- you could always eat sh*t and die, dear.

My 47yo coworker when I mentioned I had been raped "Oh, luckily that hasn't happened to me YET"
I was like wtf??? and had to try really hard not to giggle...it just made no sense even coming from someone who is more stupid than a bag of potatoes

1. Thing that annoys me most is when your around people who feel they need to inform you of the brave kick-ass things THEY would have done in your situation(kick them in the balls, scream so loud someone would HAVE to hear them, bite them) . Get a clue people!
2. A friend of mine when I first told him: "Well, your not the only rape victim I know." Good to know, thanks.
3. Counceler: "I've never actually been raped, but i speak to so many young women like yourself I know what your going through." Well, I for one will sleep easier knowing I'm in your capable understanding hands.
4. This is the one that makes me laugh. Someone once told me that just because I was raped that doesn't mean I should feel like a trollop. Yes, they actually used the word TROLLOP. The things people say.

My husband's mother: "Isn't it time you stopped living in the past and found something better to do? The local tech offers Chinese Cookery courses, you know".
Oh! Okaaaaaay....Chow-mein and soy sauce as a cure for ptsd?

WTF is that?!?! I cannot believe how stupid, & insensitive people can be.
Or...how about this pearl of wisdom from a normally compassionate friend who apparently lost her brain...I hope to God it's temporary... I told her awhile back that my b/f & I had been having problems because of my inability to communicate with him & give him the things he needs in a relationship.
Her response? Ummm...forgive me, this may not be an exact quote, but she said something like "You need to just tell him that you're ready, get over it & do it." IT being sex. And I really wasn't talking about sex in the first place, but more about emotional intimacy.
Well...now I know...if I just sleep with him, my issues will cease to exist. Thanks for reminding me just how easy it actually is!!
So, now, I'm off to have meaningless sex (just to get rid of my issues you know), whip up a nice stir-fry, & knit someone a lovely sweater...I'm sure I'll be all healed once I'm done...

(big fat trigger warning)
"next time cut up and down not side to side. Just die and save us the time."
Thanks, pal. You give me such hope in humanity.

Boss: "I think you'll be okay and get throught this. Your strong and I think you'll be one of the people who can cope with this"
I was quiet
Boss: "I think you're like me. I'm strong and I think that if someone drugged me and f*cked me up the ass, I'd be able to cope"
I was quiet
Boss:"In time you might even see a funny side"
Needless to say the WANKER is no longer my boss or friend, and the only funny thing is how pathetic he is!!!
-Sorry its not that funny, but I think you'll all agree it's pretty inappropriate. If I'd carried on working there I reckon he might have suggested I take up knitting!

"I hope you're not here to talk about that, (meaning the abuse) because your father doesn't remember any of it happening, but, I'm not saying I don't believe you, because I know YOU believe what you're saying".
Essentially she believes me to be a big fat liar, and my father to be wrongly accused by her psychotic daughter.
I haven't spoken directly to her since.
