Here is something I never thought I’d see — my name in an article with Roseanne Barr’s. Who would ever have ever thought we had anything in common?(Click on this link for the article: Roseanne Barr, Sandra Fluke, Margaret Cho & Folks Around The World, Join To ‘Unite Against Rape’ My name is in the paragraph below Margaret Cho’s photo.)
When I thanked the woman who got me listed in the story as one of the A-listers, she responded: “You’re welcome. 🙂 Happy to do it! Any time I can promote someone who deserves it, I try to do so! And you, my friend, are very deserving.”
It was very sweet of her to say so, but the truth is, what’s really deserving is the cause. We should all be united against rape. It’s an unwarranted violence against girls and women (against boys and men, too, for that matter), and it has no place in the world of today. Nor should being a victim of rape carry any stigma. We’re better than that.
If you would like to join Roseanne Barr, Margaret Cho, and me in this campaign, you only need to send a photo and brief statement (“I stand united against rape because…”) to: firstname.lastname@example.org or visit: UniteWomen.org: (www.facebook/UniteWomen)
