The art and the idea behind the story is awesome. But why ignore that some rapists are women and that there are men who survived rape?

I'm not sure about religious part, seemed a bit odd that the gods didn't notice/care about injustice & violence before.

Evelyn "But why ignore that some rapists are women and that there are men who survived rape?" Because it affects a far, far greater number of women. Do you recall the woman who was gang raped and assaulted with an iron bar on a bus in India? Her rapists are unrepentent because they thought she deserved it for being out after 9pm. Have you ever heard anyone say that about a man? You might be interested in this documentary on rape and violence against women in India http://nymag.com/thecut/2015/03/power...

I've seen that documentary. And it's such a shame that Indian government banned it before even seeing it.

Her rapists are unrepentent because they thought she deserved it for being out after 9pm. Have you ever heard anyone say that about a man?

I was more outraged by two lawyers who agreed with that rapists comments, to be honest.

No, I haven't heard that about a man. However I've heard that a man can't be raped by a woman, it's not rape if a man got an erection or that if a gay man was raped he must have enjoyed it anyway. And similar awful statements.

And while it could never happen with a man - Afghan woman raped, impregnated and jailed for 'adultery by force' marries her attacker this could happen only with a man Alleged Statutory Rape Victim Ordered To Pay $15,000 In Child Support

I was handed my original, and soon noted each of the three persons in the office prior to my entry-also held copy; jokes began almost right away…

Steelwhisper It's a heartbreaking blog, his. I read it quite some time ago, but I never forgot.
