Let us know topic suggestions you would like to see covered in our weekly meetings.
Suggestion to discuss rape, what it is, what it isn’t, and why it could possibly exist.
To be clear, it is not to my knowledge that anyone here endorses rape, or has engaged in such behaviour. From what I believe, we all share firm knowlege of why rape is troublesome (it is directly against the liberty of another). The desire of this suggestion is to discuss such concerns, and exercise our positions on it. As a dragon cannot be be tamed, if its nature is not understood.
Interesting topic! I have to recommend the book A Natural History of Rape by Randy Thornhill and Craig Palmer (I know I mention this book all the time). The first three or four chapters are the most relevant. I can think of many interesting angles.
Great! I’ve added the book as the recommended reading for this session. We definitely want to be going into these sessions more knowledgable than speculative!
