What's Rape Got to Do With It?

I guess some people don't understand what rape/sexual assualt really is, why people do it and how important an issue it is.

First there's the story of Wagatwe Wanjuki: she was sexually assaulted when she was a student at Tuffs University. Instead of tracking her assailant down, the school told her that she should leave. By peer coincidence, the Dean involved advised her attacker.   Then George "I switch to talking about baseball when I stick my foot in my mouth about politics" Will decided to get involved and claimed Wanjuki just wanted some sympathy.What a hero!

If things couldn't get worse, there's Lawrence Lockman. Let's just go to the quote:

“If a woman has (the right to an abortion), why shouldn’t a man be free to use his superior strength to force himself on a woman? At least the rapist’s pursuit of sexual freedom doesn’t (in most cases) result in anyone’s death.”

So in the political "Fair Exchange is no Robbery" realm, a woman who aborts pretty much deserves to be raped. Equality at last!

In a world where rape and sexual assault is looked at as "the woman's fault" still, in 2014, it's no wonder there are so many victims who decide to not come forward.
