how true it sounds Anna... I don't think it has ever changed since the beginning of man, except most men have become more respectful of women on a whole.
Sex is an animal instinct, rape is taking it when you want it against the persons will. I don't think any woman deserves to be raped BUT in saying that there are some women whom carry on in such a manner it could be seen as deserving.
I had a dear friend who went to prison for 7 years for rape! (out in 3 years) I can tell you it was NOT rape. I was at the party this took place, the guy was a very popular man and the young woman involved was old enough to know how to conduct herself. They were partying together and having a wow of a time, she was all over him like a rash! She wanted him as much as he wanted her and it was clearly obvious.. When did it turn into rape? Not that night .... It turned into rape the next day!
This guys life was turned upside down and to this day myself and others will never agree that he came close to raping this woman. Those kind of events are just not on...
Rape is about power, control, domination. Rape is not about sex. Even a castrated man is capable of sexual assault (he cannot complete the deed of course).
If that’s true then why isn’t domestic violence that is about power, control, domination not called rape.
Rape is non consented sex and that’s it
SJP so you do agree that a woman having sex with a man against his will is rape as well
It may be, but it is very difficult to do, I donít see how it can be managed. The sexual act does not need active cooperation from a woman, but it does need active cooperation from a man.
I suppose a woman could assume a Ďmaleí role (I have to be circumspect here, I donít know what is allowed in the forum and what isnít) and rape the man in the anus. But as to conventional sex act, I donít see how a woman can force that on a man.
If she forces the man to eat viagra then it's possible
I hope you are not saying that rape belongs to women only
I suppose if she forces the man to take Viagra (or dissolves it in his drink), over powers him, ties him down then it may be possible. But the whole thing sounds very far fetched. While it may happen it is probably lot rarer than a male raping a female.
Besides, males are conditioned from birth to dominate, to be in control of their surroundings. So when they lose control they want to lash out, they must establish the control over the surroundings somehow. And one of those ways is rape.
Females are conditioned from birth not to be in control. So if they feel that they have no control over their surroundings, it is no big deal to them. And when they do act out, it is usually self abusive behavior (sexual promiscuity, drug abuse etc.), rather than raping a man.
"females are conditioned from birth not to be in control."- you're right if you are comparing sheer numbers, but i've known some very controlling women and the ones who are, are generally a lot worse than controlling men.
Hogwash. Some people are, but only by design and to the insistence of weak minded and weak of spirit men. Fear drives this mandatory role modeling by gender and if anything it will fade out like an old flashlight.
The races a mingling, the roles are failing their traditional assignments and the God fable is in rigor mortis. What's more the traditional methods of putting fear into people so they obey without question is failing as well.
I welcome that.
Thank you juan
it's okay. I was there, I was using a good example of what can happen, often does happen to the guys and I am a woman, I protect women and I am somewhat of a feminist *smiles*
I agree with Gerry that when a woman says NO it is NO and should always be NO but sometimes that doesn't apply and sometimes it is not always the man's fault.
That's all I have to say on said topic. Most of things Anna has mentioned in the stats have happened to me and I agree to most women. Some women should say no ... some find it too late ...
Kiwi now throws much ***loving calm dust*** around the room....
bye de byes..
Fancy juan thinking I was a man.. Better change me profile pic (lol)
When facts are so easily checked these days, I have a hard time understanding why so many are so intent on putting forth myth as fact. Is it because they are lazy or so stuck on themselves that they don't feel that anything they post could be anything but fact.
Myths vs. Reality sexual assault against men - SARP Center - 805.545.8888 (external - login to view)
Myth: Men can't be sexually assaulted.
Reality: Men are sexually assaulted. Any man can be sexually assaulted regardless of size, strength, appearance, or sexual orientation.
Myth: Men cannot be sexually assaulted by women.
Reality: Although the majority of perpetrators are male, men can also be sexually assaulted by women.
Myth: Erection or *********** during a sexual assault means you "really wanted it" or consented to it.
Reality: Erection and *********** are physiological responses that may result from mere physical contact or even extreme stress. These responses do not imply that you wanted or enjoyed the assault and do not indicate anything about your sexual orientation. Some rapists are aware how erection and *********** can confuse a victim of sexual assault- this motivates them to manipulate their victims to the point of erection or *********** to increase their feelings of control and to discourage reporting of the crime.
