• Annika, dear friend,
    You have truly inspired me with such graceful words. I didn’t realize how much goes into beautiful writing. Stretching before writing, who would have thought? Your paragraph was very

    I agree with what you’re saying. Medical marijuana also doesn’t give people the high, they take out that part of the drug. Knowing that, it seems silly not to legalize. The benefits outweigh the harms in

    • I agree with your post. I liked how you brought in a real life court case which showed how a majority of rape victims are treated. We need more people in the world to advocate for victims who can’t speak up for themselves.

      I do agree on your stance that society as a whole is being desensitized to rape, however I don’t think your post serves well in supporting your claim. While the statistics are important to know, it doesn’t prove that we are desensitized, just that there’s a rise in this specific crime. The anecdotal evidence you bring up is relevant to the point, but it leaves the reader wondering, “Is this a trend or one isolated incident?”

      I appreciate your willingness to talk about this subject, and I hope to be able to read more of your work in the future.
