I retweeted this because I want all my followers (and non-following individuals) to see that this is a real GOP supporter who believes that “not all rape is violent.” Hmm.. let’s see the definition of rape is shall we?
the unlawful compelling of a person through physical force or duress to have sexual intercourse. 2. any act of sexual intercourse that is forced upon a person.
Intercourse through physical force? That sounds like violence to me.
Just because drugging a victim isn’t seen as “violent”, as chaining someone down or the like, one is still using a substance to make a rape-attack easier on a victim. So yes, rape IS an act of violence.
This twitter scenario started because I commented to the GOP Youth that they are “pro-life”, when that truly isn’t the case, because they just care about the pregnant woman until she delivers, they don’t say much about the conditions in which the newborn is growing up in: poverty, violence, drug-using parents, cruel foster homes, etc. (I don’t think women should be told what to do with their bodies, ANYWAY.) They are not pro-life, they are pro-birth. There is a difference.
