What Drives Men to Rape?

I found this really interesting. I don’t however, believe that the drive to rape is due to a mere disparity in emotional training. Some of this is actually the result of nature as well as nurture.

I think we make a mistake when we assume that we can teach those people who are just not naturally emotional about sex to suddenly be emotional about it. Their misunderstanding is that they believe that everyone else is as unemotional about sex as they are. Our misunderstanding is that we think we can get them to understand what we feel and feel it too. In both cases, we are projecting and therefore not capable of truly seeing things from the opposite perspective.

Also, it is a grave mistake to believe that everyone who rapes even calls it rape. Case in point:

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
