That rape is a crime of violence, not sex.
Rape has always been about the violence, the domination, the humiliation, and the shaming of another; it has never been about anything else.

Speaking as an owner/operator of a penis, there is absolutely no validity to the meme that an erect penis lowers the ability to think or made good judgments. And as an owner/operator, I am sorry you had to go through that shit.
