Why do men rape?

on Apr 22, 2013 , 05:31 pm
What makes a man rape a woman? What makes a man become and act like an animal? Is it because he has low self esteem, or because he is brought up to believe that he is superior than a woman? Is it because his mother has been abused by his father and that's why he grows up not respecting women? Is it because he has been treated differently from his sisters? Is it because he is not comfortable around a woman?

A man can rape a woman for many reasons. Primarily for satisfying his sexual needs. Sexual addiction and an uncontrollable sexual drive due to sexual addiction can be behind this. 80% men are sexual addicts but with time this addiction leaves most men. However the others may find it difficult to deal with it and may even not know that they are addicted. These men then start looking for easy targets to prey upon. The easy targets are usually the women around them like housemaids, neighbors, a woman walking on a deserted stretch and in some extreme cases their own family members like daughters, in-laws, nieces etc. The Government should stop negative sexuality being promoted through movies TV & internet and also help deal with sexual addiction. There is high amounts sexual education promoted but this actually adds to the problem and not solves it.

They rape because they have no respect for women and consider themselves superior. To fulfill their sexual desires is also one of the main reasons to rape as they know they can flee without any severe punishment.

it is because a man finds it as a way of fulfilling his sexual gratification and many of his hidden taboos which in normal case he wudn't do with his wife or gf it have pretty less to do with dominiance ...as a man would still rape if he have fantasies like having sex under femdom.... its his instinct who compelles him to rape not his active mind. these instincts can be backed up by poor law and execution system of one's country and the level of punishment assigned for the act all people have more or less same tendencies....the point is how much a man knows he needs to control. this self control can be inflicted by 1) education 2) making aware of the probable victim's suffering(i.e sensitivity) 3) (THE MOST IMPORTANT) fear!! yes...if one wud have sufficient fear of the concequences or of the punishments he myt get afterwards...it wud help suppressing his instincts aginst the logical grounds.. these instincts are backed up by visuals or hearing of the provoking factors which are otherwise banned or taboo in d society as like revealing dresses of opposite sex showing parts which d to-be-culprit won't see easily in d society or some voices can olso do d job. as far as instincts are concerned....they can only be confronted not b elemineted cuz human body is ENGINEERED tht way to feel those instincts....however , what and how to react is purely art of d active mind n logics developed by individual.

the fact is that men take advantage because they believe they can get away with it. Our judiciary takes ages to close a case, our police always arrive after the event, govt hospitals are as unhelpful as an empty pen and the media despite displaying the trauma of the victim and her family and the anguish of the common people is always judged wrongly. Every problem that our country faces has propelled men to do heinous crimes. Rape, I believe is the lowest point to which a man can go. 14 yrs to life imprisonment is not punishment enough for their crime. They destroy a woman's entire life in a single stroke and they practically are given 3 free meals everyday. What they do is a life long torture for that hapless woman and they must be served the same. They should be castrated, barred from business and employment sectors and they should be brought to streets wher they deserve the brutal miseries of life.

Wrong Question! Ask what to do with men who rape? Answer: Cut off their assets in public places. This is the only viable option.

This is a social problem This country consist men from every trend and they see women from different prospective One of the biggest reason for so many rapes in India is that MEN know that women would not complaint to anyone including her family This gives them a High Women MUST start reporting all cases and a special Police Cell be maintained for Rapes Cases which will only deal with such mens
