The soul shrinks From all that it is about to remember, From the punctual rape of every blesse' d day
What can I tell you, son of mine? I could tell you of heartbreak, hatred blind, I could tell of crimes that shame mankind, Of brutal wrong and deeds malign, Of rape and murder, son of mine; But I'll tell instead of brave and fine When lives of black and white entwine, And men in brotherhood combine This would I tell you, son of mine.Kathleen Jean Mary Ruska
The history of biology is littered with horrifying examples of the misuse of genetics (and evolutionary theory) to justify power and inequality: evolutionary justifications for slavery and colonialism, scientific explanations for rape and patriarchy, and genetic explanations for the inherent superiority of the ruling elite.Pankaj Mehta, There's a gene for that, Jacobin, February 2014
Feminists are often asked whether pornography causes rape. The fact is that rape and prostitution caused and continue to cause pornography. Politically, culturally, socially, sexually, and economically, rape and prostitution generated pornography; and pornography depends for its continued existence on the rape and prostitution of women.Andrea Dworkin
There are many ways in which a woman experiences a greater sense of powerlessness than her male counterpart: the fears of pregnancy, aging, rape, date rape, and being physically overpowered; less socialization to take a career that pays enough to support a husband and children[...] Fortunately, almost all industrialized nations have acknowledged these female experiences. Unfortunately, they have acknowledged only the female experience.warren farrell
If I could wave a magic wand and get rid of either rape or religion , I would not hesitate to get rid of religion. I think more people are dying as a result of our religious myths than as a result of any other ideology . I would not say that all human conflict is born of religion or religious differences, but for the human community to be fractured on the basis of religious doctrines that are fundamentally incompatible, in an age when nuclear weapons are proliferating, is a terrifying scenario.sam harris
Then the big white whale, Clinton . What about someone who is a war criminal, a taker of bribes from foreign dictatorships , almost certainly a rapist (plausibly accused, anyway, by three believable women, of rape), executed a black man (Ricky Ray Rector) who was so mentally retarded that he was unable to plead or to understand the charges You're against all that, right? But you're for it when it's someone who you think is a "New Democrat".christopher hitchens
For a decade, feminists have drilled their disciples to say, “rape is a crime of violence but not of sex.” This sugar-coated Shirley Temple nonsense has exposed young women to disaster. Misled by feminism, they do not expect rape from the nice boys from good homes who sit next to them in class.camille paglia
In no state can a man be accused of raping his wife. How can any man steal what already belongs to him? It is in the sense of rape as theft of another man's property that Kate Millett writes, "Traditionally rape has been viewed as an offense one male commits against another a matter of abusing his woman."Susan Griffin, Ramparts, Volume 10 (September 1971).
History, sacred and profane, and the common experience of mankind teach that women of the character shown in this case are prone to make false accusations both of rape and of insult upon the slightest provocation for ulterior purposes.James E. Horton, Memorandum Order granting a new trial in the case of the Scottsboro Boys (June 22, 1933).
Men may buy pornography but women pay for it – in terms of exploitation, rape, violence, and a society that sees them as disposable sexual objects. *Rosalie Maggio The Dictionary of Bias-Free Usage (1991)Charles Manson during an interview with Penny Daniels (1989)
Pornography is the theory, and rape is the practice.Robin Morgan "Theory and Practice: Pornography and Rape", 1974 in Going Too Far: The Personal Chronicle of a Feminist (1977)
rape is like bad weather: if it's inevitable, you might as well relax and enjoy it.Clayton Williams, Texas gubernatorial candidate, March 24, 1990.
