We've been told that rape and sexual assault/harassment is about CONTROL & POWER.  I have known and read about some women, usually the same ones over and over, revealing their countless tales about being raped, sexually assaulted, and/or harassed many times. Yet other women in the work place have never been such. Why is that?

Wrong place, wrong time.

Explained by Hunkie...

Why do some women, usually the same ones, have never ending tales of being raped or sexually assaulted on nearly a daily basis, and many other women have never been subject to it? Seems strange, since rape and sexual assault is about control and power, thus nearly everyone should be included. Or is it because some women think they are so hot, they can't be denied? A staggering contradiction. Someone please explain.

I think it usually is about control and power. I doubt if the numerous elderly women who have been sexually assaulted, thought they were "hot".

Some women say they have been attacked many many many times. Many others have never been attacked. That's not about "control".

Do some encourage it? Maybe fairy tales to garner sexual attention? (hmm)

My analogy stands because it is true that people who project confidence rather than fear tend to be left alone rather than victimized. That holds true in many situations and for both women and men.

There are also many men who have been falsely accused by women. While there is certainly no excuse for sexual assault or rape, neither does every flirtation qualify as such, nor is there any excuse for false accusations. And false allegations belittle the true victims of rape, and ruin reputations and sometimes the lives of those falsely accused. I do not automatically believe every allegation made and I do not/will not apologize for that because many women flat out lie, while others try to blow minor encounters, albeit wrong, into major events, which, again, belittles those who truly are victims.

As always... JMHO

"Most" women are not, but many are. I do believe you are simplifying this very real issue. Yeah, some women make a very big out of something that others would not, and claim to be 'traumatized' over it. So do men, I'm sure.

I'm unaware of any usual suspects claiming to have been raped "numerous" times. I've seen women mentioning online that they've being raped or sexually harassed when the subject comes up.

My link is just one of countless instances, when a woman has been sexually assaulted in some way without inviting or "encouraging" it in any imaginable manner.

Rape and sexual assaults IS about power and control for those in POWER who sexually harass/sexually assault their prey ..... AND they as sexual predators do figure out/KNOW who they CAN intimidate and those they CAN NOT intimidate.
With all this #metoo going on..... looking back being a young "working woman of the 80's" working at a big corporation, apparently I too was sexually harassed by my male co-workers and bosses 35 years ago when I was 19, I just didn't know I was.....BECAUSE I as a truly STRONG minded woman back then at just freakin' 19 years old would tell those sleaze bag men(no matter their HIGH POWERED positions at that company) to basically F off.....thus becoming KNOWN as that "pretty woman" working in Building 2 you shouldn't hit on or mess with.

Eh now in the USA in 2017, we have young women and minorities being INDOCTRINATED by the far left, our Public Schools and our msm(all leftists) to believe that they're actually being "oppressed" living in the USA, smh.

Back in freakin' 1975 my sister and I were overwhelming elected by our peers to become our school's President and Vice President as GIRLS, never ever feeling "oppressed" as girls while growing up....eh now in 2017 our liberal media and Dem politicians are trying like HELL to convince young women and minorities to BELIEVE/FEEL that they're oppressed and will further be "oppressed" under a Trump Administration.
When IN FACT it's the policies and mindset of the left that oppresses women and minorities.

In the work place it seems exactly about power in my opinion, you're the all high and mighty boss and the woman is under you and unless she puts out she will get fired?

Is the base desire behind the power, procreation? I wondered at that then thought that if it were the case then the perpetrator would choose strong victims (?) rather than what is being suggested here.

So there is a definite fear motivation at work in here someplace. Fear in others gives people power, they then gain this power that is illusionary anyway. Hmmmm, I am sure this ties into money someplace.

I am far too scatterbrained this night to be of any real value to this conversation.

There are many different reasons why men rape women. FBI pro-filer's talk about the history of some of these men. As an example, a man goes through life hating women because maybe his mother abused him, or his mother was a prostitute, making him rape women as payback.

It can be empowerment, hatred towards women, control etc. There are mnay unknown reasons,

But one thing is for sure, they are weak, self indulging, low life human beings that need to be punished in the cruelest way possible and as well, Pedophiles are in that same category.
