All Life Is Sacred
This is an uncomfortable topic for most, with roots in ignorance and control, perpetuated by religious doctrines, tribal beliefs and that probably goes back to human's emergence on this planet.
It goes back to animalistic behavior where the female of the species goes into estrus and the males come to mate. It was and it is survival of the species.
The difference between humans and other species is that humans have the ability to think, discern and expect more than just a mating encounter for perpetuation of the species.
Mostly, but not always.
Somehow the illusion that to "win" the female the male must exert dominance and sometimes violence over her, and the concept perpetuated by many societies that females must submit to the male to be accepted created the myth that if a woman is forcibly violated, sexually attacked and raped it must be the woman's fault. That she didn't cover herself properly and didn't dress modestly makes no difference here.
It is just a sick excuse to act like animals with no respect for one another. Very few species, spiders and praying mantis come to mind, will kill and eat the male after mating. But they are mating, not just ejaculating to relieve themselves of pent up stress.
As a woman, I won't entertain you here with all that I witnessed and endured when it comes to this topic. All i wanted to say is that violence against another living being is unacceptable to me and hopefully to you.
