Rape is a form of sexual assault that is against a woman 's will, which can result in unwanted pregnancy. Therefore, rape is a condition that justifies abortion. Surely, scars caused by physical abuse can slowly heal, but a scar that is unseen to the eyes of men is hard to heal. In this case, it is an emotional wound, which can be caused by trauma, abandonment, neglect and abuse. Rape is a horrible and traumatic event that brings great suffering to the raped women.
These women see it as a shameful act to the entire sex and criticize adulterers heavily. Men, on the other hand, offer more forgiveness toward women for adultery. In The Scarlet Letter, the Boston women reproach Hester and the men are more merciful towards her. This novel depicted seventeenth century women’s views of adulterous women as well as accurately describing how women in the twenty-first century see adulterous
This displays the need for better testing of these rape kits, because if they do not get tested within a timely fashion, many others could become victim to the same rapist just like in the newspaper. One of the victims of Jones’s rapist is also a male showing that both men and women can be raped. Throughout the US thousands of rape kits are left untested. Each one represents a victim of sexual assault waiting for justice, and by leaving the kits untested the criminal is able to walk free and hurt others like in Ms. Jones’s case. After Jones was raped several others were raped after her, but those rapes could have been
Anne McClintock wrote her essay “Gonad the Barbarian and the Venus Flytrap: Portraying the female and male orgasm” to examine pornography and how it has changed throughout history and its effects on how women perform as sexual beings. McClintock focuses on the various roles of pornography such as its emphasis on voyeurism, pleasure, and the male ego. She wants her readers to know that women are still not represented in pornography to satisfy their own desires, but they are there to cater to men and their subconscious. I will analyze how McClintock argues that due to the history of sexism towards women, the roles that men and women have in pornography are inherently different because of the societal belief that women are only seen as objects of sexual desire and are solely there to satisfy the male audience.
In her article, ‘On Date Rape,’ she discusses the dangers of women being raped due to mixed signals given out from both parties. However, she discusses it with a double standard that the rapist may be looked upon as the victim and the female can be put to blame, because some will say that only herself could have prevented it. Camille Paglia expresses her opinion as an anti-feminist who not only feels but actually believes that feminists have mislead women by telling them that they can do anything they want without any long-term consequences. In her article, she makes use of many fallacies including false analogies, hasty generalizations, and personal attacks, while trying to argue her personal stance on today’s woman
“Thousands of men and women are demonstrating to fight the idea that what women wear, what they drink or how they behave can make them a target for rape.” This quote by feminist writer Jessica Valenti perfectly explains the main idea of the SlutWalk movement. Rape is an exceedingly common crime in America, and unfortunately, one in which the victim is most found responsible. Society repeatedly tells women throughout their lifetimes that not leaving a drink unattended, wearing modest clothing, not walking the streets alone at night, and much more will keep them safe from assault. Sadly, however, these things don’t prevent rape. We live in a world where rape is accepted as a part of life; where what the victim was wearing determines whether or not the assault took place.
According to Coates and Wade (2004) attributing the assault to a psychological disorder to naturalize his behaviour. However, this testimony leads to the idea that it is okay to rape young girls to help men get over the sexual anxiety issues. His responses do not indicate the details of the events on hand, nor the girls’ reactions to the assault. He also conceals his violence by using the word “vice”. On two occasions he said that he uses “sex as a vice” and “loved sex because of the vice at the time”.
Novelist, Roxane Gay, in her essay “The careless Language of Sexual Violence”, voices her concerns about rape culture and how it is perpetuated in today’s society. She uses anaphora, imagery, and rhetorical questions in order to demonstrate how society “carelessly” (131) normalizes rape. In her essay, Gay uses rhetorical questions and anaphora to further stress her concerns and talk about how writers are gratuitous when talking about rape. She opens her essay using anaphora comparing “crimes” to “atrocities.”(128) Gay uses anaphora in order to emphasize important words and concerns she has. Another effective technique she uses is rhetorical questions.
Is human trafficking a gender issue? If indeed so, anti-trafficking and gender-related initiatives need occur that help eradicate the gender-based consequences of human trafficking. This draws attention to the people targeted by human trafficking and anti-trafficking parties of the government to look closely at the gender aspects of human trafficking in globalization. Sex slavery is the main area of gender-based issues. It is common knowledge that women are more likely to become sex slaves among men.
Analyzing an Extended Essay: On Date Rape We live in a society that is filled with dangerous crimes such as rape and date rape, where one cannot simply trust another. Date rape is a little different from rape in terms that the rapist is someone the victim knows or had some kind of romantic connection between them. Date rape happens most commonly to young girls and in colleges. In “On Date Rape”, Paglia argues that women should be responsible for their actions and its consequences in a case of a date rape. However, the author fails to present a valid argument as she includes fallacies such as double standard, appeal to fear, and false analogy.
