Rape: a discussion on Face Book~

Image
The act of rape is not only serious, intrusive, violating, victimizing, terrorizing and traumatizing,  it is also an act that remains without reason or rhyme for so many. We read and hear,  that it is about an act of a type of control and power. When I speak/write about the act of rape, it is about when the word NO, bears no meaning. It is about when one person goes beyond what is right and what is acceptable. It is also about when a person has no control over their own thoughts and/or actions, yet takes control over another’s through physical and/or mental actions in a sexual manner of sorts.
I ran into this discussion on Face Book in which I felt compelled to share with you as it deals with a subject matter that can affect each and everyone to some degree.
The discussion deals with reactions towards the perpetrators of rape.

Rape Is..

Rape
It is:
-forced
-unwanted
-horrifying
-traumatic
-shameful
-dirty
-forbidden
-sinful
-damaging
-ugly
-scarring
-not the victims fault
Rape is about power and control,  it is not necessarily about the sex.
Rape is the use of a threat or actual force and violence to take control over another person against their free-will.
Some rapists will use drugs to take away a person’s ability to resist.  This is known as coercion or intimidation, which is a type of manipulation of ones free-will and/or compliance.

A rapist deserves no favors nor excuses. This victimizer knows right from wrong. When a person says ‘ NO’ ….they mean ‘NO’.  Excuses such as…she was saying  ‘NO’, but I know she was really saying  ‘YES’  are as shallow and as disgusting as the rapist themselves…..
