A viscious crime
in which somebody forces somebody else into having sex
, entirely without the other person's consent
Rape is not erotic
at all and it is not about sexual pleasure
; rape is about power
Usually, rape is reported as a man raping a woman; men who rape often have sex quite often and/or have a sexual dysfunction
. In the case of the dysfunction, he could be taking out his frustration
Other times, men feel threatened by women and their rising status and want women back where they were, so they attack women, wanting to hurt
them, and frighten
them. This case is especially true in places where traditional gender role
s are rigid and where the "ideal
" male is aggressive, unfeeling, and strong.
Women, on the other hand, are totally capable of raping men. A common way that they do so is to blackmail
men into sex with them.
And men can rape other men and women can rape other women just as easily as heterosexual
s can rape the opposite gender
s often threaten their victims too if they try to report the rape, so many rapes are not not mentioned until much later. And who knows where the rapist has been? The victim could become infected with an STI
or become pregnant
because of the attack.
Rape is not all right. Rape is not erotic; it's terrifying
! Sexual assault
takes a lifetime
with; such severe things are not anything that one can just "get over". And the sentence for rapists is too short! Two years in the slammer
and then they're free (to rape) again?!
Oh, and when a lady
!", she means "No!"
Do your best to escape rape if you can: scream for help, bite them, scratch them, punch them, hit her in the breasts, kick him in the crotch
, stomp on their feet, punch them in the gut
, kick them in the shins, do whatever you can to get away from them. Take a self-defense
class if you don't feel that you can fight.
Remember: rape is not the victim
's fault; it's the rapist's fault and the rapist's problem. They're the ones who need punishment. The victim did not "ask for it".
