‘Rape is a disease’

Mehwish Qamas .



If short dresses and skirts cause rape, how does it explain the rape of those in sarees and burqas?
If rapes happen because of influence from western culture, how does that explain rapes in villages as punishments?
If rapes happen because girls roam around with guys freely, how does that explain rapes by relatives within the family?
If rapes happen because some girls are dressed provocatively, how does that explain the rape of toddlers and really old women?
The first task of the guilty is to blame the innocent. It’s an almost perfect inversion of culpability. This is also how nonsense like Not All Men starts floating around. These have to be the silliest people on the planet, to make even an issue of women oppression about them. ‘Yeah, you never molested a woman, here’s your gold medal.’
We don’t want to address the elephant in the room, which is “How…

  1. Thank you for this article, it really is a powerful piece. As a victim of rape healing though sharing my story it is wonderful reading post as powerful as this


  2. Simple but strong! This post is really powerful. Rape is certainly a disease and the most scary and sad fact is that rape is a crime that is increasing every year. I feel like the stories we hear about rape are also getting worse and it really makes me question today’s essence of humanity. I love how this post addresses how people tend to make any excuse to put the blame on the rape victim, when really we should condemn those who rape. We should teach people to not rape from the beginning rather than protecting ourselves from getting raped or blaming the victim. A growing problem nowadays is also male rape where victims don’t even come forward because they think people won’t believe them. That’s what my page is all about and I’d love for you to visit it! Thanks for sharing 🙂


    1. Great comment, I thank you for taking of your time to stop in and read the article and to comment on it. I agree with you rape is a moral and a mental sickness, there is no excuse for it. As soon as I click the reply button I am going to go straight to your site to check it out.


  3. You are right. It is a disease. It is truly heart crushing to hear about toddlers getting raped. It saddens me the most. Barbarism has a new category apart from killing. I think it’s the exposure few men can’t handle and as consumers, they absorb every filth they could find on the internet. People have lost control over themselves. It’s not just about people living in villages, but it’s very hard for women to work at a place where men start gawking like an eagle for a pound of flesh. What a girl wears is her choice and totally understandable. What men do reflects their upbringing and mindset which needs to change.
