    are guarantees of rape behavior.

    Until we deal with the fact that we, here in the USA, just like in the Middle Ages,  like corporate hierarchies in business, government, religion and interpersonal groups, we will have those people, mostly men and their imitators, boys, committing rape when it serves their purposes of entitlement to privileges.

    The extent of rape in any culture completely depends on the extent of hierarchical entitlements. And that is the hardest problem to root out here. It has been since 1776, 1865, and 1945. The problem continues.
