Default GOP still doesn't get rape

During the hearings regarding sex assaults in the military, leading GOP light Saxby Chambliss (R-GA) said this:

Quote:
The young folks that are coming into each of your services are anywhere from 17 to 22-23. Gee whiz -- the hormone level created by nature sets in place the possibility for these types of things to occur. So we've got to be very careful on how we address it on our side, but guys, we're not doing our job. You're not doing yours, and we're not doing ours with the rates that we are seeing on sexual assaults. As I said to start with, you recognize it. We recognize it, and we got to figure this thing out because we simply can't tolerate it."
He agrees that it's intolerable, but the ol' "horny boys can't help themselves" is just plain BS.

Even given a chance to clarify and apologize, he didn't.

What an idiot.

sure they can, its called keeping it your pants on not sexually assaulting someone who is not consenting.... I am unsure where the confusion is..... put in a zero tolerance policy for SA and all of the sudden occurances go down.

The other issue with this argument is that he fails to recognize that the majority of rape victims in the military are men.

Yep, boys will be boys. They rape each other. It happens!

Rape is more about exerting power over someone. It's not about "horny boys will be horny boys"....

Rape can be about power or sexual desire. Like W*GS said, the guy agrees that it's intolerable, so what's the point of this thread? Are we not supposed to talk about the motivation for rape? Other species rape too.

Well, we could pull up that thread that W*gs posted about how the unarmed grandma was raped, and how he was proud her gun misfired.

I see you still can't read worth a damn.

Right-wingers like yourself never can.

Even when they move their lips and trace the words with a finger.

Like you.

You can't defend your fellow GOP troglodytes.

Go back under your rock, ya little proto-fascist roach.

Chambliss thinks rape comes from rampant hormones. It does not.

What does that have to do with anything? I don't think anybody is trying to justify rape.

Rape is abnormal. Most of us here discussing it are normal people speculating on the motivation. I've never been in the military or prison, but I'm guessing it makes you hornier if you have a strong sexual drive.

Your argument is disintegrating. I recommend stopping.
