Steve Carell

Hollywood’s famous faces are joining forces with President Obama to end sexual assault.

On Tuesday, a new PSA about sexual assault at college universities, the second from the Obama administration’s 1 is 2 Many campaign, was debuted and starred some of Hollywood’s leading men, including Daniel Craig, Benicio del Toro, Steve Carell, Seth Meyers and Dulé Hill. President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden even made cameos to support this incredibly important cause. The last PSA for the campaign featured famous athletes, including Eli Manning, Jeremy Lin and David Beckham.

Biden has demonstrated his passion for ending violence against women for the last two decades, and in a speech on Tuesday, he said,  “College and Universities can no longer turn a blind eye and pretend rape and sexual assault doesn’t occur on their campuses. I understand that the good guys in the report, they may feel like they’re damaging the reputations of their schools, I get it. But it doesn’t matter.”

Biden’s passion for the PSA had him making phone calls to its stars to get them on board. We, as well as the White House Administration, hope this campaign will inspire men everywhere to care about and get involved in ending sexual violence against women everywhere.

    Read a book by Randy Thornhill & Craig T. Palmer surrounding rape. Professor Thornhill is an evolutionary biologist while C.T. Palmer is an anthropologist. The fact is that rape is a crime motivated by sex. Any1 who says that rapists don’t do it for sexual motives is talking rubbish-either they don’t know what they’re talking about or they’re lying-esp. if they’re a pscychologist. Here are some facts surrounding rape.

    1. Rapes are found in the animal world. They’re found amongst insects such as crickets, waterstriders, scorpion flies, etc. They’re found amongst birds such as mallard ducks & red jungle fowl. They’re also found amongst primates such as Orangutans. Males rape females for reproductive reasons in the animal world. A male who has problem getting females (such as males who lose mate fights) rape females so as to reproduce.

    2. Rapists mainly target young women. Before starting, it must be said that homosexual rapes are also sexually motivated with young men & boys mainly being the victims which the authors briefly touched. Though the professors didn’t discuss this, if a boy is homosexually raped, the likelihood is greater that he’ll turn out homosexual-engage in homosexual activities in adulthood vs. if he wasn’t- 30% of homosexuals report being homosexually raped in their youths so yes, homosexual rapes in youths can impact adult sexuality for some. Some women say that they believe they turned out lesbians because being raped by men when they were little girls caused them to hate men & this is why some lesbians believe they turned out lesbian. I’ve never heard straights blame childhood sex abuse for being married with kids, yet homosexuals & lesbians sometimes blame childhood sex abuse for their adult homosexuality.

    Since it’s about men raping women, while rapists can attack women of all ages, most rapists go after women who are girls to 35 years old. 75% of women who are raped are under 30 years old, 10 to 12% of women raped are 30 to 35 years old, 7 to 9% 36 to 39 year old, with 5 to 8% of women rape victims being 40 or older with most in this group in their 40s, the last years of prettiest. Menopausal women, those 50 & older make up 1 to 2% of rape victims. After 40, the woman’s chances of getting raped starts going down significantly. If a man robs a 45 year old woman, he’ll take her money. But if the same man robs a 25 year old woman, then he is more likely to commit rape in addition to robbery. This is true in wars. Soldiers who win a war steal, loot & rape young women. Men rape young women because the woman has something which the man wants & that is sex-which he takes by force or by threatening force.

    3. Most rapists don’t do added violence. This is esp. true of acquaintance rapes-date & marital. If a man rapes a woman, he’ll use the force or threat of this to get sex. It’s like a bank robber. Most bank robbers will only use the needed force or threat to get the $ & then leave. Another reason most rapists don’t use added violence is because of biology related to reproductive success. In the animal world, if a male kills a female in addition to sex, then his reproductive success has failed. Yes, some rapists do kill their victims just as some robbers kill their victims, but these are in the minority & the most likely reason is to kill any witnesses.

    4. Poor men are more likely to commit rape. Yes, rich men sometimes commit rape if they lack sex restraint. However the reason poor men are more likely to commit rape (with most of their victims poor women) is because poor men are more likely to have problems getting women. Women are drawn to men based on the man’s phoenotype (good genes) & resources that a man has. Poor men are more likely to have problems getting women who are interested in them & they may not even be willing to pay a prostitute. So they resort to rape for their sexual motives. In the animal world, males have to impress females such as win mate fights, provide nuptial gifts such as food to impress the females. If the females aren’t impressed, then some males rape so as to reproduce.

    Anyhow, if any of you have read the 2000 book by Thornhill & Palmer, the fact is that rape is a crime motivated by sex. Rapists motives are sexual & to say that rape is about power but not sex is rubbish. 84% of rapists say that sex is a main motive. Power which is force or threat of force is a means to get sex. Rapists mainly go after fertile women because this is who they want to have sex with & are attracted to. Though Thornill & Palmer briefly touched this, it must be said that most sex abuse cases are men touching a woman’s boobs or butt against her will (frottage such as in elevator) & almost all the victims are women between 18 to 35 years old.

    Rape cases are almost always he says she says such as date & marital rapes, with the woman saying that the man forced her to have sex while the man says that the woman agreed, doing the acts that she agreed to while not doing what she or he said no to. It’s possible for a woman or man to 1st agree to have sex but then change mind & say no. It’s also possible for a woman or man to 1st say no but then voluntarily change mind & decide to have sex. & it’s possible for a woman or man to say no to 1 sex act but agree to another. Not to be graphic, but if a woman were to ask a man if he could do oral on her, there are many men who would say ‘no, just normal activities’. In this case, the man wants to have penis/vaginal sex with her but he does not want to do oral sex. Rape cases must be judged by juries in deciding which story is creible.
