3 Quote Challenge. Day 2


I was chatting to http://patternsofsouldevelopment.com/  (unfortunately, I don’t know her name)  yesterday, about the traditional assumption that a woman who is raped must have been asking for it – yes, that old chestnut. I suggested that a woman who contrives to dress provocatively is generally looking for love in the only way she knows how – although I should have added that often she has such low self-esteem that she doesn’t believe herself worthy of love and is looking for the closest alternative she can get. But I didn’t say that because my comments were already a bit wordy. I find any excuse to rant.
In response, she said something very simple and very astute, and this is my quote for the day:

<<>> <<>> <<>>

We are all asking for love, in all our doings and undoings.


<<>> <<>> <<>>

Again I would like to thank Fimnora at Quantum Hermit for inviting me to take part in this 3 quote challenge.

For the challenge, the rules are:
I – Post your favorite quotes or your own quotes for three (3) posts in a row.
II – Thank the person who nominated you.
III – Pass it on to three (3) other bloggers per quote, each time you post them.
IIIb – Or pass it to nine (9) bloggers if you choose to post all the quotes together, in the same post.

These are the three bloggers who I’m inviting to run with the torch today:
Deanne at Deane’s World
Janni at Janniestyles1
Michelle at Random Michelle

    1. I was pleased with it. It dropped into my lap at just the right moment. I wish I had put a name to it, but it was late by the time I wrote the post last night, and realised I didn’t know the name of the author of patterns of soul development.


  1. A very good, apt quote. And absolutely true. Don’t get me started on the issue of women ‘asking for it’ through their dress or flirty behaviour, or I’LL go off on one, and we’ll be ranting again.

        1. I remember the way I was viewed, and when I got into trouble people probably thought it was my own fault. They couldn’t see inside my head. – to me the world was a confusing place. I was only safe when I was up a tree.

          1. Amen to that. The world is a confusing and utterly terrifying place. We only survive it through the bonds we make with others and discovering our own coping strategies. Being up a tree sounds like a sensible response to me
