    Definition of RAPE

    1 : an act or instance of robbing or despoiling or carrying away a person by force

    2 : unlawful sexual activity and usually sexual intercourse carried out forcibly or under threat of injury against the will usually of a female or with a person who is beneath a certain age or incapable of valid consent — compare sexual assault, statutory rape

    3 : an outrageous violation

    Anyone remember the scene from the 1977 movie, "Demon Seed"?

    The woman is raped by a supercomputer that uses a probe to inseminate her with its off-spring.

    The question is this, "Why is the GOP fixated on the RAPING of woman?"

    Why are we not using the word, "RAPE" when the GOP tries to make it a law to "RAPE" a woman like this?

      and makes it harder for other people to use it properly without being blown off.

        to use it for rape. And it is not making it harder for other people to use "properly" (as in, actual rape? is that what you mean?). The state requiring an unnecessary penetrating procedure for no reason is rape.

        I'm amazed by people's courage and kindness in the face of everything and life.
