    "The Invisible War"

    I've just watched the documentary "The Invisible War", a Netflix rental. It's about rape in the U.S. armed forces, and it's really hard to watch at times. 20% of women and 1% of men in the armed forces are sexually assaulted at some point in their careers, and the offenders are...

    Accountability

    I don't care how much any woman teases a man, she does not deserve to be raped. Even though she may ask for it, 'no means no'. That is what ************ is all about. It relieves sexual tension. If the death penalty was to include rapists, I think this topic would be almost non...

    Not Sure

    I don't know if this is considered rape or not, maybe just sexual assault. I am 17, and I have to ride the bus home from school every day. My ex-boyfriend was angry with me for breaking up with him, and he pinned my arms down and kept touching me inappropriately. I was too...

    Absolutely

    Despite my ******-up fantasies, that in no way means I condone rape. The things I wish on myself I do not wish on other people. I am a messed person and I believe that is partly due to repressed abuse from ages 2-6. I can tell from the feelings I have about that time. But there...

    rape is always wrong.

    to make someone feel helpless and insignificant for amy reason is wrong. the only thing worse are the people who make the victims relive and feel guilty for such an act. it is despicable. a rape victim goes through so much more than being attacked by a rapist. the attacks...

    No Exceptions

    It disturbs me when I see groups about people who have rape fantasies. OK, so maybe you dream of controlling, or being controlled by, your partner. Maybe you'd do a little role playing.But that isn't rape.Rape is someone violating your intimacy, your body. Sex is something...

    Recently in India, two girls were raped

    and found dead, hanging in a mango tree. I wonder what clothes they had to wear to provoke that. Rape apologists could at least ******* admit that they just hate women, and can't stand the idea of their empowerment. Rape culture disgusts me.

    Rape is 100% preventable.

    The perpetrator always has the option not to rape, and even if the perpetrator decides to commit the crime, the victim might have a can of mace or a gun readily available for these situations. If the victim forgot the can of mace, or the gun, and was still raped, s/he should...
