Rape to me is when you push a women down on the ground/dragging away and pushing her down while being violent about it (using enough force so she can't escape).

I've also always thought that accusations of rape when married is impossible. If you married somebody then you should know what you gotted yourself into. And you've probably done it with him lots of times so it can't compare at all to a standard rape.


And a man that gets dominated by his women cannot feel like a man anymore. If he's normal he would be so full of shame he would be an archslipper.



That's absolutely absurd...Rape is sex against someone's own will, it doesn't matter if you're married, or you had sex with the person just last week. True, it's less likely to occur in marriage, but that doesn't mean it won't happen... Plenty of abusive husbands and wives rape their spouses, and are able to get away with it because of viewpoints like that..

There is sexual exploitation and there is rape. In marriage (or engaged for that matter) I can agree to some cases being sexual explotation but not rape.

lol! They get away with it because of other reasons. Like wanting to keep the family together or for the children.

Of course, that'd be the number 1 reason...But also, because, many people wouldn't care or believe that it happened...


It all depends on your viewpoint...But I'd rather talk about centaurs than rape though...

Ahem, about the centaurs! Centaurs! (no rape, but centaurs :rolleyes:)

I always thought that, regardless their mythological origins or whatever, centaurs were kindly integrated with their faction in Heroes games. I really liked them in Heroes 2 (mysterious), in Heroes 3 (they looked almost like a mix between elves and horses - valiant and pure), in Heroes 4 (rustic) and now, in Heroes 5 (bestial, fearless). As long as they are fitting with their castle, I find accetable.

Although, for my like, they should be Inferno or Dungeon.

If I recall correctly, only one centaur in Greek mytology was wise, good and honorable.


That would be Chiron. He is also known as the mentor of several heroes from Greek mythology.

I'm not sure but, once in a time in my childhood, I've heard that a centaur, like Cérberus, guarded a part of the hell, impaling souls and guarding a gate to another place. I don't remember well, but, just a childhood tale, that's the main idea I have from centaurs: hell creatures, austere, mysterious, abiding a lord's laws.

Just throwing in this link

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spousal_rape

which leads to a short, but nonetheless interesting short summary regarding the aforementioned problem.

I guess I should expect centaur references in the rape thread? :devious:
