Rape Denial: Law of Supply And Demand

The first problem with any talk of supply (women willing to let men have sex with them) and demand (men wanting to have sex) related to rape is that it figurately detaches women from their bodies.

The second problem is that it turns sex into something that is as necessary as air and water. I haven't seen a single person who used this analogy who also talked about this demand in terms of repopulating the earth. Usually this analogy is used in relation to one-night stands. Raping a woman becomes the equivilent of looting for food and water during a flood. Very handy for those who want to be able to take the girl or woman they want, willing or not.

Men go to bars filled with men and then complain that there aren't enough women. Go figure.

For those who use this analogy, sex is a male need but not such a need that men should actually get to know women and have real respectful relationships with them. Nope, for these men, women you have sex with are nothing more than a commodity.

No wonder with that attitude that these men face a shortage of willing women.

Some guys actually think that way don't they? That is a really scary thought. Sex is certainly nice but it is certainly not needed like food or water.

Hopefully all of these horrible men will just end up with each other complaining about how "unfair" life is to them.
