Famous Quotes & Quotations About Rape:
Forcing smoke down my lungs is pulmonary rape. It invades my body against my will, and it's not fair.
~ Patty Young.
I feel what they feel: man-hating, that volatile admixture of pity, contempt, disgust, envy, alienation, fear, and rage at men. It is hatred not only for the anonymous man who makes sucking noises on the street, not only for the rapist or the judge who acquits him, but for what the Greeks called philo-aphilos, 'hate in love,' for the men women share their lives with husbands, lovers, friends, fathers, brothers, sons, coworkers.
~ Judith Levine, My Enemy, My love.

Rape's not something where you just go, "Well, get over it" or "Believe in love and peace, my child, and it'll all be over." Well, fuck you, that isn't the answer. It's a great thought, OK, but you can go and stick crystals up your butt and get on with it. I'm all for love and peace, but that's not the side I work on. If somebody would talk about it, or worse, joke about it, I would be ready to kill. That's not healing. It was a very long time after that before I was able to be with anyone again. And it has never been the same as it was before.
~ Tori Amos.
The good writers touch life often. The mediocre ones run a quick hand over her. The bad ones rape her and leave her for the flies.

The media treat male assaults on women like rape, beating, and murder of wives and female lovers, or male incest with children, as individual aberrations... obscuring the fact that all male violence toward women is part of a concerted campaign.
~ Marilyn French.
There is an element of anger among women who've been raped. There's certainly a major element of humiliation. But it really does seem like a medical condition of shock and horror.
~ Nicholas D. Kristof.
War. Rape. Murder. Poverty. Equal rights for gays. Guess which one the Southern Baptist Convention is protesting?
