    I don't agree that a chump (man taken advantage of by a woman into spending money on her) is equivalent to rape.

    But then again, I don't think a man manipulating a woman into having sex with him is rape either.

    Manipulation is a big word. There are some means through which someone can be manipulated that could probably be considered worse than 'just rape'. :P

    The unifying factor is that one person is dehumanizing, objectifying, and using the other to satisfy a personal desire, regardless of the other person's feelings on the matter. That's what ends up hurting the other person the most; not the particular means of doing so per se.

    I say rape is all that and more.

    but doesn't that broad criteria cover a lot of the human condition in general?
    I redact everything I have written or will write on this forum prior to, subsequent with and or after the fact of its writing. For entertainment purposes only and not to be taken seriously nor literally.

    Yeah. We're pretty much assholes to one another, if we don't know you personally.

    That's the answer to the question "why is there so much evil in the world?" BTW

    Yes, but I'd say one is about exploitation of someone else's resources and the other one is about violation of someone else's body and possibly subjugation by violent means... Apples and oranges, methinks.

    Only if you consider physical harm to be "worse" than psychological harm. I do not.
