Okay: just my two cents here...<br />
In my opinion, it has NOTHING to do with the availability/unavailability of willing sexual partners. People will commit rape even when they have a normal, active sex-life. I also don't think rapists are created simply by exposure to sexist or violent **** (although they possibly gravitate towards it of their own free will). Rapists exist in sexist and non-sexist cultures alike - which would also tend to indicate that this is not something which is created by any sort of emasculating force in society. This isn't a state of mind that normal men will come to if they are simply socially awkward and unable to get sex.<br />
From my experience, rape is about trying to quench some sort of internal insecurity within the rapist. They wish to frighten, possess and control someone because they are afraid themselves - and they blame others for their own fears as well as their subsequent actions. Rapists tend to lack any sense of personal responsibility (or feelings of guilt) about their crimes. They blame the victim. They blame society. They're often incredibly narcissistic - and therefore they don't believe that there's anything wrong in taking out their sense of (forgive me) impotent anger on other people. The world revolves around them anyway. They can lack any genuine sense of empathy. Nobody else is really human to them.<br />
Could you take an infant and (through a strict regime of psychological torture) turn them into a rapist? Undoubtedly. Plenty of "normal" people have gone in that direction after a prolonged de-sensitization to violence.<br />
But does saying "no" to a man mean that he will feel the need to rape you?... No.<br />
At least, I hope not... :/
If he rapes someone.
Nothing makes them become a rapists, they love what they do. I was raped a year ago ,I wanted to be with him, you have no idea they will do this until it too late. they is no way a 107 pd woman can get a 6 foot man off her, it is like dead weight. most rapes are "CONSENUAL", that means you cant prosecute. That is how they trick you in the first place. very few are strangers. they get you alone, and "force "there organ into yours. they just love to hurt people and want to pass there anger and power into there victims. they are usually good looking men who are so full of themselves, The athlete who everyone looks up to,the smart *** who pushes people around.
My theory is that when a man is denied sex by more than one ortwo women, he begins to become a misogonist and it escalats into a desire to cause pain to someone. but I only lack 12 years of college to be a real doctor so "grain of salt' applies
I don't think availability of sex has to do with it, not simply. There are casual rapists who live on college campuses and feel entitled to sex because the culture has taught them that they are so entitled; and there are violent predators out there who stalk women and have the need to dominate, if not injure, them. You can't separate the violence from the sex; obviously, the go together in this crime. But I think that the serial rapist who attacks strangers has deep psychological and emotional issues that he acts out in this way, even though he may have a regular girlfriend. (I'd have to research the "regular girlfriend" part, but I think that is accurate.) The vast majority of men who don't have healthy sexual outlets or relationships do not rape. I think it has to do with deeply rooted feelings of powerlessness.
A hatred of women, a lack of emotions,psychological reasons I would guess.
I tend to agree with OldGroupiesNeverDie It's not about society etc there is something very wrong with thease people. I"m not sure if a normal person would become a rapeist if desensitized to violence though I lean in the direction that they were ****** in the head before they were desensitized.
Men, especially young men, whose libidos are at the higher end on the 'bell curve' find considerable difficulty at controlling their sexual urges and are constantly plagued by them and well into late life. If they also happen to be dominant and physically muscular some women will find the experience overwhelming while others welcome it. Many rapists have no other criminal record but there are a few criminal types who also happen to be rapist. Until recently only males could be indicted for rape but society has become wiser. Some women seek sex for vindictiveness (mainly to other females) or for compensatory reasons connected to their damaged self-esteem.
someone who didnt have a present father or healthy relationship causing him to form a close bond with mother that escalated into repressed sexual desire, who later in life craves but is unable to attain female companionship/intimacy causing him to develop hatred toward women which makes him want to hurt them(take by force).......well this is what alot of psychiartists beleive
desperation caused by lack of satisfactory sex (if any)<br />
most are unable to deal with a woman face to face, see the women as too strong (psychically) so the only way they see is to overcome them physically.
IMHO men don't become rapists. When boys don't learn to respect girls/women as equals and even worse when they are taught that cruelty is acceptable, these same boys grow up to do bad things like rape women.
I think almost all men are perfectly normal creatures - I don't think if a woman made it known the answer was no, that many would actually persue the sexual experience.<br />
If a man does pursue, when the woman (or man) has said no, or has indicated no in her responses, then that means the man has raped, he is now a rapist, and as he has such disregard of that other person's wishes, he could rape again.
There are six different types of rapists. There are rapists who crave a certain type of sex they can't get elsewhere. They may seek sadistic sex. The may seek D/s sex. They may get turned on from non-consensual sex just like some females get turned on from non-consensual sex. They may hate females for some personal reason and wish to hurt females and use sex as a means to humiliate and hurt them. Or most often is the case they simply can't control themselves just like people who are obese might not want to eat a meal but can't stop themselves from eating it or like a drug addict, an alcoholic, or a gambler who can't stop using crack cocaine, drinking alcohol, or gambling. Sex is a drug. The female body is heroin. Males are drawn to have sex with females with a greater craving than heroin addicts are drawn to using heroin. Suppose you put heroin in the hands of a heroin addict who was "jonesing"? Or you but the most tasty looking food in the hands of a person who is obese but hasn't eaten in a day? How much self-control will they be able to exert? When males don't have sex with females, they suffer depression, their energy levels fall, their confidence falls, their mood sours, they experience the kind of withdrawal symptoms a drug addict experiences. Nature made it torture for males not to be have sex with females. This torture is not relieved by cold showers or ************. The craving for sex, for intimacy, to touch female flesh, to touch a female breast is primal craving like the human need to eat or drink. People need to eat and drink to live. Males need to have sex for their DNA to live. The whole biological purpose males were placed on Earth was to **** females. That is their sole biological mission. That is what millions of years of evolution programmed them to do. If they don't do that in their teenage years, there is a good chance they will never do it, and there is a good chance they will never have children and never procreate. Therefore, nature made the sex drive in males very strong. It made it very difficult for them to pass up an opportunity to impregnate a fertile female. You look at all these sex scandals involving males. All the males in these sex scandals are not psychopaths or sociopaths. Most are honest, fair, and moral in their dealings in every aspect of their life except for sex. This would not be the case if they were really sociopaths. The fact is the sex drive in males is often overwhelming. How overwhelming is it? Well gay males in the 1980s could not stop themselves from having sex even though they knew by doing so there was a very high chance they would catch an incurable deadly disease that would lead to a horrible, painfully slow, agonizing, humiliating death, that would destroy their reputation, humiliate them in front of the entire world, and cause them to suffer the most horrible death you can possibly imagine. Even this did not stop them from engaging in what otherwise would be considered really disgusting, sickening, revolting behavior. All drug addictions use the part of the brain that evolved to drive male mammals to engage in sex. Illegal drugs trigger endorphins and dopamine. Endorphins and dopamine evolved to get drive male mammals and human males to have sex.
The human gene pool contains every combination and permutation of DNA and genetic code. This variability is necessary for the survival of the human species. This means humans span the gamut. You will find humans at every extreme. You will find humans with a weak sex drive, great self-discipline, not driving by impulse, who are completely controlled by their intellect and their mental faculties. And you will find humans who have an extremely strong sex drive, who were genetically born with little self-discipline and little impulse control, who live in the moment.
And then there is the role of environment. Some children grow up in an environment that exacerbates their genetic "weaknesses" and some children grow up in an environment that counter these weaknesses.
Some people may condemn teenagers who have lots of children, and teenage males who impregnate lots of females. This is bad from a societal standpoint. But these humans are doing what evolution programed them to do. Evolution rewards humans that produce the most amount of offspring by multiplying their DNA. That is how evolution works. So all those children who sexually mature quickly, who quickly start having children, who have low impulse control, low self-discipline, and a high out of control sex drive are evolutionary winners.
Rapists who rape strange females are also evolutionary winners. They might go to jail. They might be killed. But when the women they impegnate have their babies, their DNA is matched with DNA of women that is far superior to the DNA of any woman who would have consented to have sex with them.
That is why evolution programed females to feel bad about rape. Because generally speaking when females are raped their DNA gets paired with DNA that is lower quality than the DNA of a male they would have chosen for themselves.
Because they want to fulfil their selfish lust.
