The politics of rape:

Rape is one violent form of oppression and is a mechanism by which individuals or groups gain, express and maintain their dominance and power over others. This is evident when rape is used as a tool of war, when men are raped in jail, or when rape occurs on the basis of someone's race, age, ability or sexuality. Rape is about the use and abuse of power to intimidate, degrade or control others with less status. The fact that women and children are raped more often than men is a manifestation of lesser power and inferior status in society.

Structural and institutional powers and societal beliefs maintain a culture where women have less power and status. Power imbalance or discrimination is also practised on the grounds of race, class, sexuality, age and ability. Sexual violence for women then, is not only an extension of sexism, but often exists in conjunction with these other forms of oppression.

your post sent me off on a wild tangent.
rape is not violent sex.
it is sexual violence.


WARNING!
EXTREME TRIGGERS!

rape is a weapon.
it is an instrument of power and domination.
it is used to control and degrade.
men make up the vast majority of prison rape victims and have a hard time getting anybody to take them seriously when reporting their own rapes.
there are plenty of prison rape jokes to add to their humiliation.

http://www.prisonabuselawyer.com/prisoner-neglect-abuse/prison-rape.html

Over 300,000 instances of prison rape occur each year;
196,000 are estimated to happen to men in prison;
123,000 are estimated to happen to men in county jail;
40,000 are estimated to be committed against boys in either adult prisons or while in juvenile facilities or lock ups;
and 5,000 women are estimated to be raped in prison.


prison/warrior/military cultures are based on the exercise and execution of the practical application of force and violence:
traditional macho/masculine/male societies often develop a subculture of intimidation/domination in which the victims are often the young new recruits.
the completely powerless candidates are ripe for for rape and sexploitation as they are groomed and weeded,
the humiliation becomes ritualized and institutionalized as a twisted form of initiation and bonding.
it promotes dependency, secrecy, obedience, submission.

an estimated 26,000 sex crimes took place in 2012 in the US Military.

A 2010 Time magazine article paints a bleak picture

"a female soldier in Iraq is more likely to be raped by a fellow soldier than killed by enemy fire."

Of course, females are not the only victims of military sex crimes;
13,900 of last year's cases were reported by men.

The article also notes that the "Pentagon estimates that 80 percent to 90 percent of sexual assaults go unreported".

Most likely, my attention to Law and Public Policy, social culture and human nature, is driven by how those factors effected my silence, the perps' leverage and ample complacency displayed by the adults around me.

Many of us see actual poli-social components today that lead to injustices and abuse back in "our day." I see the blind compliance and complacency today that was so readily adopted in the 1930s Deutschland, and it does tend to greatly concern me.

Just recently, a small boy was taken from his crack-head mom by the police, to deliver him safely to the bio-dad (who was no prize either). But the video on this went viral, and the percentage of hate-speech driven toward the protesting mother and neighbors was horrendous!

Commenters by the score were calling for horrible things to be done to the boy (who was fighting the extraction), the neighbors who were freaked by the heavy-handed extraction methods, and "all white trash" in general. "kill them all" Those people need to shut up." "Those people need to be bull-dozed out of there." "listen to these animals and the language they use (in the video)." "That boy needs to learn some discipline...a year in juvie will straighten him right up, he he he." "So what if the cop slapped him...he should have tazed him."

So quick are we to reduce our fellow man to "animal meat." Hitler parlayed that human trait into an entire citizenry ready willing and eager to Jew-hunt. His people were licensed to commit crime on the vilified, the marginalized and the "wrong."

Today; its Christians, Conservatives, constitutionalists, etc who have been vilified and marginalized with the same comedic belittlement, with an after-taste of hate.

"Oh he's a nut-case!" "Where did you get that info?"

If you take the time, and value your fellow survivor in real terms, you'll soon discover that Victor's sources and cites are of real things, people and plans...but its much easier to join the rock-throwers and laugh that laugh of evil and hate.

the UN recognizes rape as a political weapon,
a tool of oppression and a war crime.

https://www.un.org/News/Press/docs/2012/sc10555.doc.htm
http://www.un.org/News/Press/docs/2008/sc9364.doc.htm
http://www.ohchr.org/en/newsevents/pages/rapeweaponwar.aspx
http://www.un.org/Docs/journal/asp/ws.asp?m=S/RES/1820(2008)

the United Nations Security Council on 19 June 2008 unanimously adopted resolution 1820, which noted that “rape and other forms of sexual violence can constitute war crimes, crimes against humanity or a constitutive act with respect to genocide”.
The resolution noted that targeted use of sexual violence was “a tactic of war to humiliate, dominate, instill fear in, disperse and/or forcibly relocate civilian members of a community or ethnic group”.

the most powerful ally of evil is silence.
beware the gospel of indifference.

Culture influences politics. Politics shape a great deal of culture.
Culture influences the evil and lunacy found among some of our society's leaders! Read this #$%&.

Teachers in MI stand behind a colleague convicted of rape – Glenn speaks to the victim’s father
Monday, Aug 19, 2013 at 2:41 PM EDT
Glenn Beck

"On radio this morning, Glenn shared the story of John Janczewski, a resident of Rose City, Michigan whose son was molested by a teacher, Neal Erickson, at Rose City Middle School. The sexual abuse happened on several occasions when Janczewski’s son was in 8th grade. The boy is now a sophomore in college.

Erickson was convicted of statutory rape after a picture surfaced of the boy in a compromising position with the teacher. On July 10, 2013, the judge sentenced Erickson to 15-30 years in prison, but six educators and one school board member came out in support of the teacher and asked for leniency. According to The Detriot News:

Before the sentencing, six teachers and two retired ones wrote letters to the judge asking for leniency.

None of the teachers condoned what Erickson did. Instead, their letters focused on his 17 years of teaching, describing his popularity with students and teachers, how hard he worked and how often he volunteered for school functions.

Parents in the town have since called for the firing of the teachers and board member who have defended. The town has balked at the requests claiming the firings would result in expensive litigation that would drive the city into bankruptcy. Tonight at the Ogemaw Heights High School auditorium at 7pm, there will be a meeting to decide the fate of the administrators.

Glenn spoke with Janczewski this morning about the impact this ordeal has had on his family, who have endured a string of vandalism and threats since the verdict was handed down."

No place for Politics on this board? Really????

the etymology and meaning of 'POLITICS':
The singular 'politic' first attested in English 1430 and comes from Middle French 'politique', in turn from Latin 'politicus', which comes from the Greek 'politikos', meaning "of, for, or relating to citizens", "civil", "civic".
as a citizen, i have a duty to remain civil, and maintain my civic pride.

as i raise my awareness,
i raise my level of alertness.
as i raise my consciousness,
i also raise my voice in protest against the sexual violence and political silence.
we can speak up for those who can't.

LIBER VOX POPULI!
