Ah, before I write this, let me say I may be apt to use vulgar/obsense language. It's intent is to get my point across.
One thing feminists love to propagandize is that rape is about control not sex. In other words, that a man rapes a woman not for the orgasmic pleasure of it, but because he has a fundamental desire to control and hurt that woman (some feminists will go so far as to say men do it because they are jealous of women or some other nonsense).
I've yet to see what research they did to prove this. Most people believe it's true - because their teacher told them it's true - whose teacher told them it's true - whose step sister who is a raging feminist told them it's true - and on and on.
Here is my theory on 1) Why they spread this lie and 2) Why it remains popular. The latter explains the former.
First of all, I think it has psychological appeal to women. Here is the reason.
Most if not all women need sex to be about something more than just sex (when done right, it is). I'm not here to debate that though. I'm just making note of the fact that women want sex to be about more than just a dick in a vagina.
This applies to all sex. So when it comes to rape - if a woman is raped, and the sole reason she gets raped is for nothing but a man who wants to stick his penis in her vagina - any vagina, it wouldn't have mattered to him - not only is this woman being raped, she is being reduced to the level of nothingness, worse than a prostitute, nothing but a warm cunt for him.
But if he is raping her because he wants to "control" her - an element of that "more" comes in. There is something distinct to *her* that he wants.
Now here is why feminists keep this lie alive.
First of all, their lie has massive popular appeal not because of fact but because of the psychological appeal the lie has to women.
But the reason they have a vested interest in keeping this lie popular is this lie makes rape seem *less evil*.
Let me put it this way: if a woman knows she is being raped for nothing other than she is a pussy for a man to stick his dick in, she'll run like hell from it. She will be damn sure to never be raped (do whatever she can to stop it), and she also will not glorify it AT ALL after the fact. It will leave a feeling of pure and utter disgust in the pit of her stomach.
Ah, but if it's about "control" it's a whole other ball game. All of a sudden it's a matter of .... "Women are so great, that men have this uncontrollable urge to control us..." ... she becomes a victim because of her virtues, in a sick twisted way.
Feminists do this to take the sting out of rape, and in fact, glorify it.
If there is one thing about femininsts: they do NOT want to end rape. If you ever watch a feminist, when studies find there is MORE rape in society, they actually get HAPPY.
So in fact this lie about rape being about control, it, in a way, not only does not make women run like hell from the thought of being raped, it actually makes them want to be raped. Rape becomes a massive power source this way. A rape victim can get up on her soapbox and never actually feel humiliated about the whole incident but rather will feel completely empowered.
It's all a part of setting up a rape culture.
