When women's bodies are ravaged, violently, against their will, then
something is _taken_ from them. The sense of control over ones own life _and_ body,
self-respect, a sense of security etc. etc.
When people have non-rape sex they are both "giving" their consent.

I think by the nature of the word seduction the men were quite willing.
If anyone gets another in the right mood, then they are in the right mood!
This means agreement on both sides. There is no "no" at that time. Are
you confusing "seduction" with "rape"?

Have you had a bad experience? How do you know if someone is saying no
just to reassert ones rights and when she really means no? It's not clear
to you? It doesn't matter. No is no. Yes one really shouldn't play
around with another like that, but it is not "at least equally
contemptible" by any stretch of the imagination!

The rape that I am talking about is forcing sex upon someone against
their will, and yes men have been raped too (mostly by other men)!
Another definition of rape is "outrageous violation". If you think that
someone who says no after turning the other person is an "outrageous
violation", that is your perogative.

Guess what? A woman's body and consent is her personal property. She can at any time say no. It takes 2 to tango and if one does not want to, you don't tango.
