    But my point of view was that rape was seen as "corrective" not  of women standing out, but of denying sexual access.

    Those who support banning cocaine are no better than those who support banning cheeseburgers

      but to stand out is to implicitly advertise one's strengths.

      Replace the word TOO, with the word Strong or strongly.

      A strong woman is a competitor and must be weakened through an act of dominance.

      Slut shaming and rape are two common forms.
