Ian Boudreau wrote about this on twitter: "You don't hear a lot of jokes trivializing the experiences of soldiers with PTSD. The point is we're conditioned to respect vets. Not so sex assault victims."

I'd go into a rant because, you know, I'm obsessive on the subject of violence against women and the people who joke about it and don't have a clue about flashbacks, but I STILL have a migraine so I'm going to cuddle up with an ice pack. Fortunately it's a hot day so I can enjoy it. It's just lovely to use ice packs in the winter. I can't tell you how much.
