GUEST,Lavengro BS: The culture of RAPE (13) RE: BS: The culture of RAPE 06 Jun 13

I must admit that I have not watched the links above so I am only chipping in on some of the general comments by other posters.

I think it is dangerous to narrow the field of view in regard to rape. It is not in the preserve of certain countries (India), religions (Islam) or cultures (the military). You could (for example) pick out some equally horrific stories of rape from the UK, US or South and Central America where the Christian religion predominates.

Speaking as ex-military with overseas experience, soldiers do not rape. If you commit that crime you cease to be a soldier and should not(IMO)have the "protection" or option of a military custody. You should be in a civilian prison.

Rape is not a feminist issue, it is a human being issue. Violence against women is everyones problem; there is no cultural or religious "excuse" for it. A society that doesn't value its women doesn't value a whole lot, and that needs to be remembered and made self evident to our young people.
