Hmm. I haven't noticed this. Murder is all the rage these days, what with Furguson and the rest. Do you have any stats that compare the number of media stories on them? I've noticed in myself that when I have something on my mind, I tend to notice it a lot more and ignore things that aren't related to it. Selection bias, it's called.
Oh, were you referring to A2K in particular? I thought you meant more broadly in society.
Seems to me that we as a culture have been fascinated by murder stories for centuries. "Lizzie Borden took an axe and gave her mother 40 whacks..." Jack the Ripper, Sherlock Holmes and other fictional detectives that always seem to be investigating murder masterminds, not rape masterminds. Not saying that rape doesn't have its own following, but looking at the bigger picture, I think I see more attention paid to murder, which seems to suggest that it's the bigger atrocity. Henry Lee Lucas and Ottis (what's his name, Smith?), for example. The media were ate up over the number of people they killed more than what they did with the bodies.
This is a typical fallacious ploy, a loaded question. It's a "have you stopped beating your wife" question. One cannot answer it without accepting the premise--other than to just deny the premise.
I'm just wondering aloud why rape gets so much more discussion. Why does it get so much more discussion from all angles?...
Is there something inherently more appalling to human beings about having sex with someone against their will then taking that person's life? If so, what is that particular facet?
I'd need some evidence to show that to be a fact.
Considering the number of people who rape compared to the number of people who murder, I'd think that most people find it more acceptable. How many rapes go unreported compared to the number of murders that go unreported?
That was a straight-forward description of a logical fallacy. If you can't understand that, there is no reason to believe that you'll get if i waste my time in expatiation.
However, it's hard to deny that rape is discussed more passionately by people on all sides than murder is.
Oh no, you're wrong--i deny it
More specifically, that you are obsessed with rape is not evidence that all of society is.
Well, you might want to tell that to the media, and the rest of the internet ...and the rest of the world
Your conceit is hilarious--you can't be wrong, because you said you aren't.
Ah-hahahahahahahahahaha . . .
