Rape is forced, unwanted sexual intercourse.
Rape is about power, not sex. A rapist uses actual force or violence — or the threat of it — to take control over another human being. Some rapists use drugs to take away a person's ability to fight back. Rape is a crime, whether the person committing it is a stranger, a date, an acquaintance, or a family member.
No matter how it happened, rape is frightening and traumatizing. People who have been raped need care, comfort, and a way to heal.Sometimes a rapist will try to exert even more power by making the person who's been raped feel like it was actually his or her fault. A rapist may say stuff like, "You asked for it" or "You wanted it." This is just another way for the rapist to take control. The truth is that what a person wears, what a person says, or how a person acts is never a justification for rape.
These are non-domestic rapes committed by someone who knows the victim. They include rapes of co-workers, schoolmates, friends, and other acquaintances, including "date rapes."The vast majority of rapes are committed by people who already know the victim. Date Rape also called acquintance rape is rape that occurs between two people who know one another and usually happens in social situations.It can happen between people who are dating as a couple and have had consesual sex in the past. It can happen between two people who are starting to date . It can happen between people who are just friends and it can happen between people who are friends or friends a.k.a. acquaintances
Myth: Only "bad" girls get raped and they "ask for it."
Fact: The first problem with this myth is that it shifts the responsibility for the crime from the rapist to the victim. No woman asks to be victimized, threatened, violated, frightened, humiliated, or degraded. No woman asks to be so threatened and violated that for the rest of her life she vividly remembers the trauma of the experience. No woman asks to fear for her life. No woman deserves to be raped. The second problem with this myth is that it ignores the fact that anyone, anywhere, at any time can be raped. Women, children, and even men have been victimized by rape!
This exception states that, “Sexual intercourse by a man with his own wife by a marriage which is valid under any written law for the time being in force, or is recognised in the Federation as valid, is not rape.”
Sometimes i feel sympathy when the victim tell her friends and even her family but they cant trust her.. some of them make assumptions that the victim herself seduced the rapist!what if you were the victim, and you decided to tell this to your friends and family, their response was :" what? there's no point to argue this, you yourself wanted to get involve in this!you cant blame anybody!".. i felt furious when i heard some of my stupid friends made assumptions that the victim deserve the sexual assault, i really wanted to say that"who are you to judge this?"ya... the victim might be bitchy..but nobody deserved it! whatever the circumstance is, the girl has the rights not to have sex... well, if i were that victim perhaps i could raise up defamation against my stupid friends..hahaha..
