    the cultural underpinning of learned social behavior. It exists in the warnings to females and the blaming of females for being a victim. It exists in jokes about rape like it is just about sex when it is really about dominance. I read recently that most rapes are by someone the victim knows... Which means somewhere a male has learned that No doesn't really mean anything to a real man.  

    This is VERY GOOD. Together with the anti-rape in prisons this has been a couple of good weeks in reducing using the act that should be about love and caring as  a weapon of humiliation for the victim and a shoring up of psychological weakness on the perps part.

    I am stunned that I never did this with my son though I gave him very explicit books on sex starting at puberty and he read them until they fell to pieces. It is amazing how kids get into sex without knowing much about it.
