Scenario:
There is male and female person who think that rape is as a result of women who dress indecently or who would have wanted to have sex with a person, but who may change their mind at the last minute. This then forces the male to force sex on the female. These two people are against the idea of people carrying out demonstrations against rape, since they believe that the reason why men rape is due to the provocations way in which ladies dress or portray themselves.
Response
Given the above situation where I have to respond, I would come up with varying points which I think cause men to rape women. The first thing I have to emphasize is ...view middle of the document...

If a certain mother is believed to be a bad person some people may rape her daughter so that the lady gets a lot of traumatic experience. In my local community such cases are on the increase. Raping young children may be perpetrated to cause trauma to the parents. This can take place if there had been bad blood between these people. Some people rape to revenge for the bad things which they think might have been done by the victim or the victim’s parents. So...
