Confidence. Skills. Mind-Set. No Fear

“… (he) chose to make unwanted advances, sexual innuendos and other inappropriate comments.”
Cheryl Chapman in “30,000 Secrets”. Skills. No Fear

“…(He) rushed her from behind, pushing her up against the bulkhead (wall) and began groping her, running his hand up and down her bare leg. Expecting Chapman to respond as most women would with aggression to escape, he met a very calm female who quietly encouraged him, whispering in his ear that his touch was enjoyable.”

Chapman had finished her speech to the G-8 representatives and was relaxing in a Vancouver bar waiting for her dinner table. She was drinking Jack Daniels, watching the evening news.

“We are here at the Naval Academy covering an assault which is not an assault, but in this reporter’s opinion, retribution. The unidentified Second Lieutenant has been taken to the hospital for observation but First Responders noted that he was unconscious when they arrived, his pants and underwear were cut off and the word, No, was carved into his abdomen above his genitals. NCIS is on the scene but are not providing this reporter with any information, sighting the event is, An on-going investigation.”

“It would appear from this journalist’s perspective that this man is not a victim but an assailant who received an unwelcome response to his attack. More news at seven.”

Chapman smiled to herself, raised her JD glass toward the screen, took a deep swallow and thought, one down and thousands to go.

One Response to Confidence. Skills. Mind-Set. No Fear

  1. Women really need to read this. It is all in the mind-set. When I was in junior high, a 9th grader grabbed my ass in the hall. I punched him so hard, he went unconscious. I was suspended but my parents were very supportive that I stood up for myself.

    You can too.
