Unfortunately, that argument doesn't make much sense and seems rather cavalier and dissasociated with how violent and powerful an actual rape is. Also, it's the sense that your body was violated without your consent and used as a vessel for someone elses sick pleasure. That's a pretty disempowering and traumatic experience in my mind.
It is not the event that causes trauma, it is how the person perceives said trauma. The activating event does not create a cause and effect relationship.
Yet, is not "violation" in the mind of the beholder?
Femicrits want all to believe - especialy women - that rape is THE MOST DEVASTATING event that a women could possibly face. How this diminishes the emotional and spritiual strenght of a woman! Make victims of them all!
The foregoing is only offered as (subjective) proof that the global statement "all rape is tramautic" is inherently false. ****But to state that the act is not capable of inducing tramatic effect is equally absurd.
