Some very rare case of people who rape wouldn't be total worthless jerk. but in the most case it is fair to say, rapist can go shoot themselves.
But for this minority, we have a law system.
To those who say that rape is bad, yet still providing justifications for it, I must ask... why? You've admitted that it's wrong. You've said that certain people just aren't right in the head. You're basically saying the same thing that every other person in this thread in this thread has said which is that rapists aren't right in the head and that it's an atrocious act, so why keep trying to supply justifications and excuses for the act?
English technically isn't my first language, sometimes I misuse terminology I think is right because in my original tongue it has a certain meaning that works but in english it does not. Anyways, truth I simply shouldn't be writing anymore because I'm too tired to pay attention to detail and that detracts from I'm trying to convey with mistakes like Godwin and apparently this.
I've seen some posts (and my own) saying *This is why it happens* just to later be accused of condoning such actions simply because one recognizes the reason why such actions happen.

Just that people are trying to clarify the thought process of a would be rapist and it is being misconstrued as justification of rape.
I mean, I don't really care either way. By some people's definition of the word rapist, I'm a rapist because I let the pizza boy freeze for a few minutes.
It is better to be hated for who you are than to be loved for who you are not.
And what the rest of us are saying is "no". Rape occurs in those situations because that particular man has a lack of concern/care for the woman he's with, and decides that getting off is more important than what she wants. So he rapes her. The justifications and motivations are, at their heart, irrelevant. Those same "justifications and motivations" exist for other guys, too, who somehow DON'T choose to rape the girl.
Because the issues leading to rape aren't those justifications and motivations, as expressed. They're the individual man, who chooses to rape the girl. Those "justifications and motivations" are not causes, they're excuses. They're what he tells himself so that he doesn't see himself for the monster he is. It's no different than a guy saying "my girl said she was gonna leave me, so I killed her". That doesn't mean breaking up with someone is a motivation or justification for murder. It means that particular guy is a violent psycho.
That's the difference. It doesn't matter to me what their justifications or motivations may be, because they're not valid. They do not justify rape. As such, they're merely excuses, and to be ignored.
I'm a pretty shy guy and I would hate for people to make it harder for me to be friendly because they're running away. It really doesn't do anyone any favours when if you're being paranoid for no reason or having such strong negative preconceptions about 50% of the world's population.
It makes guys feel awkward and like they've done something horribly offensive. It enforces the stereotype that women are helpless and vulnerable to everything.
To people who were onboard with this whole "better safe than sorry" mentality about avoiding men (Tiili specifically). Do you feel the same towards other women? Are you just nervous around other people in general or does it have to specifically be a man. What about lesbians? What about feminine guys?
I'm genuinely curious, not trying to be an asshole.
Yes, now we have proper Godwin's in here! xD
Maybe if 1 in 5 men in the U.S. were going to end up the victims of sexual assault, you might feel differently, OP.
Maybe the reason women are fearful of men being rapists is because they live in a world where being sexually assaulted is a very real possibility...
