I was raped when I was 17 and the man who raped me made me scared to turn him in for it. I wish I had you strength.

rape is a crime no matter where the person violates another. saying no is not enough, from experience, rapists don't listen.

The recidivism rate for those who rape others is close to 95%. Which means, a person who rapes another human being will continue to do so until their caught. There is NO rehabilitation that can "correct" a rapist behavior. This is why we need to have all rapists castrated (males only). If that doesn't feel right to you, than we can just save all of us the headache and trauma and just send the bastard to the electric chair.

rape is rape weather it is anal, vaginal or oral , ppl this has never happened to never fully understand.it happened to me years ago, the hell I went through during exam etc, they sent 2 male officers cute huh, these two acted like it was a joke, it effected me so much, their demeanor and way they acted , we loose all dignity and self respect during these exams , my heart goes out to you all, these rapists one day will stand before god and be accountable, when so many women are willing, my question is why.
us?
