It’s not entirely clear how copyright infringement is metaphorically analagous to rape. Please explain. They seem like very different things to me.
Also, I am not entirely convinced that your quale of feeling worse after being plagiarised than after being molested axiomatically acquits you of charges of melodrama. I don’t doubt your veracity when you claim to have experienced these things, I am just pointing out that just because you happen to feel this way, this is not necessarily an outlook and, as such, is not a supporting argument to your proposition that many others would share.
