I wonder in reality which country has the higher rate of rape?
But it's ok if it the husband you've been forced to marry, or the woman is too scared to come forward in case she is the one that gets convicted.

One of the things that really bugs me, is that I don't think this guy, and others like him, truly recognize that women are "human". I mean, they might recognize that women are "human", but are NOT QUITE as human as men. Or not AS HUMAN quite in the same way that men are. If that makes sense.
(I've known American men like that too, though.)
It absolutely burns me up!

Can someone explain what driving has to do with rape?
It's actually just the opposite. They love their women and think they're precious. So valuable and so beautiful that they need to be hidden away and hoarded like a pile of treasure

If this historian really believes that women are in so much more danger of being raped in his country, that keeping ladies from driving is the only way to protect them, then does that not suggest that he has a very low opinion of his fellow countrymen?
