    that suggest that the inclination to rape is natural in any way shape or form. Healthy men and boys do not want to have sexual encounters without consent.

    •  ??? Seems to me there are few things MORE natural (0+ / 0-)

      than a man wanting sex and believing he can get it by force. We're wired to want sex, all the time, and to believe that might makes right. Only society can get men to snap out of the latter, especially in application to the former.

        It would seem to me that the inclination to take things by force isn't from Nature but rather Nurture.
          society has this message about how men are supposed to be aggressive about everything and it's pretty much force-fed down our kids' throats from a very young age.
         Ie, Boys aren't supposed to like baking even though it gives them the sweet yummies that they love so much. instead they're supposed to be into aggressive sports, etc.

         My young nephew came to love baking cookies, etc because it gave him the instant gratification of getting sweets that he loved very much, not to mention that making things with his hands were very fun for him. It was one of the reasons why he often wanted to come over to my home. the other reason being that I have a lot of video games that he plays with... most games being  rated safe for everyone, of course.

         yet, I've run into neighbors who seemed to think that he was going to grow up to be a "fag" just simply because I was teaching him how to make his favorite cookies and food. apparently that sort of thing is for women-folk only.
