Rape Should Be History in this Age


As I parade this new thoughts of mine. I hope you join me in raising the flag campaign ‘IF YOU CANNOT MAKE HER, DON’T RAPE HER’. Let’s hop on this horse and make the world a better place for all.

About 1 in 5 women report having experienced rape or attempted rape at some point in their lives, according to a 2011 Centers of Disease Control and Prevention survey. Yet rape remains one of the most significantly underreported crimes; only about three out of every 100 rapists serve time, according to the Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network

This piece represents the final chapter on the topic I have been ruminating these past few weeks. I have once imagined a world where our girls and children, our wife and mother, our boys and men would walk and live freely and secured in their neighborhoods without the fear or possibility of sexual violence or rape. Can we get there? Hmnnn… Yes, may be! Only if we were in Jupiter, some will say. All human vices can be tamed and control, only if there are more dis-incentives then incentives to commit those grievous crime against humanity. Where do we stand? Let’s ask Ms. Pepples (to get full idea of Ms. Pepples, please read part-1 and part-2)

As I have written in Part 1 and Part 2 of the series, and exposed how government takes leaner approach to sexual violence, I am impressed to see that President Barack Obama of USA is taking the plunge. “Sexual violence is more than just a crime against individuals,” Obama said, announcing the task force at the White House recently. “It threatens our families; it threatens our communities. Ultimately, it threatens the entire country. It tears apart the fabric of our communities. And that’s why we’re here today – because we have the power to do something about it as a government, as a nation.” The President in his new budget proposal sets aside more than $400 million to combat violence against women.

Mrs Pepples may not have all the answers but she can enforce the rule of law that can shape cosmic perspective to sexuality and consequences to err. When a consequence is so grave for a crime, people tend to adjust. ‘Where there is no sin, there is no law’ and ‘where there is a weak law, sin still finds its way’. What should be the damnation of culprits? Before then let’s still take a little pinch on this topic; and get to the top of the matter. But first, there are some facts that just don’t hold waters
