The identifying element of rape is sex. Force is used to achieve sex. If violence was the focus, there would be no need for sex. That is simple truth that exposes your claim as utter stupidity.
YOU said rape had nothing to do with sex. Now you admit you were wrong.<quoted text>
Rape is an act of anger, violence, power, and control.
Instead of just saying "assault," things must be categorized into levels of extremity. Usually, when one is raped, they are left more emotionally damaged than someone who was physically assaulted.
It's only meant to make the issue a higher priority than the other types of assault that do damage, yes, but less so.
See, rape is a form of sexual assault, it's still an assault, but "sexual" is the word that categorizes it. Assault in general is an act of anger, violence, power, and control, therefore by being a type of assault, rape is an act of anger, violence, power, and control.
Saying a sexual assault is not an act of anger, violence, power, and control, is saying that physical and mental assaults are neither of those as well.
Do you honestly think that just because someone is horny, they'd go out and just rape someone? If so, you are MUCH dumber than we all originally thought.
I find it less confusing to avoid politically correct BS. Then reality doesn't make you look so foolish.
Rape is the act of someone so horny, they force an unwilling partner to participate.
Why do you think it is necessary to remove the element of sex from rape?
