Okay,this isn't the answer your looking for I'm sure,but rape is with us as part of the human condition.Its unfortunate but true. As long as there
are people we will have rape.
I say this due to Jane Goodall's finding that even chimps that commit war on other chimps of neighboring groups,not only attacked and killed those
male chimps,but also went on to rape the females that had been with that group.
This is something that goes waaaay back in the human species. It had several purposes,one to quickly subjugate the female population into submission.
And two to breed with the other group,thus starting to breed them out as a separate group.
Please do not misunderstand what I'm saying here,I do not under ANY circumstances condone nor agree with this type of behavior.I'm merely pointing
out that you can see this type of behavior throughout the animal kingdom.And we truly are animals whether we want to admit it or not.
Therefore I'm saying that no matter what punishment has been used in the past to prevent it,rape will always be with us.The only way to prevent it,is
for sons to be raised up to respect they're mothers and sisters,and for both male and female children to understand their right to their own bodies
and who is and isn't allowed to touch them. Females need to understand that mind games are never alright to play, teasing is never an option.They
should respect the boys they are with enough to be forthright with them,and when the guy crosses over the line,they should say no and mean it!
Boys need to be taught similar,have respect for their bodies and to not get involved with little girls that want to play mind games.Then if a girl
says no to them,its done,they don't touch her again.
Even with all that,you will never be able to abolish rape,there will always be someone who thinks its okay.They will have all kinds of excuses as to
why.These people need to be put down.If the conviction is upright and the evidence is there,then bye bye.They won't get anymore chances to hurt more
