Sometimes I wonder what women make of this... when we males (the collective perpetrator) "contemplate" the act of rape. Can we really talk about beauty destroyed (whatever that means) when rather shouldn't we berate the defilement of the aggressed individual, that person within us all (female or male)? Is rape just another manifestation of this, or only woman can truly (and exclusively) answer the question?
