Missy Ensler needs to stop thinking with her c**t. To irresponsibly suggest (as she did in this article) that the rape epidemic in the Congo is on par with: "...anywhere in the United States, South Africa, Britain, Egypt, India, Philippines, most college campuses in America..." is like comparing the Holocaust to Abu Ghraib! and all this from a woman who -in her one hit wonder the V monologues- sanctions the rape of a minor (as long as the abuse is committed by an adult female via a young girl)!...She has also rocked rough and stuff by referring to her puff as a firearm...it's amazing how this delusional fact bender is still shooting blanks after all these years!
Sorry this had to be a quickie Eve, but it's really all you are worth old gal.
So in closing (although I do understand that you are not a fan of closure) Here is another fruit from the tree of life that you can gnaw on: While most of us get the concept that ALL rape is violent, there are levels. I now ask you to imagine for instance, a lesbian "date" rape committed by a senior anthropology major against a confused freshman in some college dorm somewhere in Britain as compared to the gang rape of an infant committed by a group of ape-like, pseudo-militants in the Congo that involves cutting off the victim's genitals in front of her family! In your naive assessment of rape (in which all is equal) there then should be no elevated level of punishment in the far more severe cases of rape that involve say torture or dismemberment.
Boy! They must LOVE you over there in the The Democratic Republic of the Congo...keep it simple.
