This is so inappropriate that I don't know where to begin. I feel  
certain that you don't know how it feels to be murdered. It certainly  
is, by most people's lights, nowhere near the equivalent.

I don't know if you are a rape survivor (I hope not, of course), but  
the survivors I know would be offended at best by this analogy.

So don't make such analogies.
