It’s funny how Adams treats these violent and hurtful behaviors as though they’d be experienced emotionlessly for humans, as well as animals, without the influence of society. If an animal hurts another animal, the animal being hurt obviously will not respond well, and that reaction will not be based on social conditioning and societal norms. Animals can also be very territorial. If an animal invades another animal’s space or body in a way that makes the invaded animal feel threatened, there will most likely be consequences. These consequences, again, will not be a result of what society tells the animals is okay and not okay. If the actions of another being cause one pain or fear, it is natural for that behavior to be considered unacceptable. There’s a reason our brains can interpret pain signals; it means, “stop whatever you’re doing or whatever someone else is doing to you!”
In reading some of Scott Adams other blog postings, I think he is used to tossing subjects out there that invoke controversy. He uses humor and satire on many different subjects. Rape is something that cannot be looked at humorously at all. Obviously no one closely related to Mr. Adams has been involved with rape or he would not look at it so lightly. He must be one of the fortunate few.
I know several people that have been victims of rape, two of which are very close to me. The feelings they have experienced range from terror, extreme helplessness, and rage, just to name a few. Rape is a subject that knows no humor.
Men are more known to yes, rape and be offensive to girls and all of that. but i dont necessarily think it’s in their nature. because of the fact that there are plenty of men who are actually decent and who have families who have no history of offense harrasment towards women or rape. Some people just problems or have weird ideas for things that get them sexually turned on. it might also depend on the culture and area where women are most likely to be raped or assaulted. Most apparenly get raped in africa or in the middle east because they have different rules and beliefs.
