Is rape really that bad?

MFP & co. Published December 14, 2014

The following is repeated with such frequency and conviction that– like everybody else– I unquestioningly came to accept it as fact:

There is nothing lower than a rapist.

Is that actually true, or is it propaganda intended to modify behavior (spoilers, it’s the latter)??

Because Rome dominated the western world for some 1,200 years– during which, its soldiers regularly raped and pillaged as a perk of the job. Whereas employers today might offer dental or vision benefits– Roman legions offered the promise of raping helpless villagers.

In fact, a seminal legend in Roman mythology celebrates lots and lots of rape:

The Rape of the Sabine Women took place after Romulus and his men founded the city of Rome. Lacking women to create families, they tried to talk their neighbors, the Sabines, into letting them marry some of their women. But the Sabines, fearing the Romans would soon outnumber them, refused. So the Romans decided to abduct their brides. Romulus invited the Sabines to a feast in honor of Neptune, and on a signal from Romulus, his men grabbed the women and fought off the outraged Sabine men.

Is Ancient Rome a lesser civilization than, say…Canada?? After all, Canada has much less rape than did Pax Romana.

And then there was Genghis Khan.

Genghis Khan and his sons raped sooo many chicks that 16 million people living today are his descendants!

An international group of 23 geneticists…found that nearly 8% of the men living in the region of the former Mongol empire carried nearly identical Y-chromosomes. The Y chromosome is passed down from father to son to grandson, and so on. Extrapolating the data a bit further, the researchers estimated that nearly 16 million descendants…Khan often got the first pick of women whom he frequently raped, and some of Khan’s sons were noted as having as many as 40 children.

Is Genghis Khan a lesser man than, say…Bernie Sanders, who presumably has never raped??

Set aside your preconceived notions for a moment and consider:

  • Rome and Genghis Khan are universally regarded as great.
  • Rome and Genghis Khan loved rape.
  • Canada and Bernie Sanders are universally regarded as less great.
  • Canada and Bernie Sanders hate rape.

The statement “there is nothing lower than a rapist” (or variations thereof) seems kinda sorta categorically false.
