Do You Think Rape Victims Still Have Their Virginity?

I think so. You lose your virginity during sex. And last time i checked, rape isn't sex.

Yes

No

If you are going to call me a dumb a, please don't be a grown man because it looks bad on your part in my eyes. But i respect your opinion.

I see sex as something consensual. Rape isn't a consensual act. And you lose your virginity through sex. I guess in other words, i see sex and rape different. However, in some cases, they are the same.

So now i understand that by society's view rape is forced sex. However, im writing on this side because 1. i want to, and 2. some parts of me support that there is a difference; that victims do have their virginity.

Side: yes

How did you reach the conclusion that 'sometimes' rape is sex, but not always? In which case is it sex, in which case is it not?

Virginity is lost through intercourse. Rape and consensual sex are both intercourse. How do you have to define virginity in order to have it preserved after intercourse?

Side: No

Edit. Again.

You are right. I basically did say that sometimes rape is sex but not always. I didn't mean that though.

I saw two perspectives on rape and sex. I said they were the same because i thought sex implies consensuality. I was wrong.

I now realize that rape is sex. And sex is sex. It is really confusing for me to say that because when one person says that "she had sex." It is not the same when she says "I was rape." So saying that alone confuses me and tells me that rape and sex is not the same. But they are. lol

Actually... Rape is forced sex. Just pointing that out.

Click the link and read the definition of rape.

Supporting Evidence: Rape: Definition (dictionary.reference.com)
Side: No

Rape is sex you dumb-ass! The very definition of rape is forced "sex".

Side: No

Actually we were both wrong. Microsoft word's spell check/grammar check says its spelled dumb-ass. Good try though.

Rape is sex, and although it's not by choice, a rape victim loses their virginity if they hadn't already.

I beleive Saurbaby08 is 100% correct. If it wasn't a violation of the person's body and emotions, then it wouldn't be sex and wouldn't be rape. But, I am afraid the two need to be seen as the same thing. Here is a good way to look at it. If you call someone a name...a really really bad name, did you hurt them? Yes, emotionally you did, but physically you didn't. Therefore, the police won't come to your house and arrest you for physically hurting the person. If you rape someone, you have broken a law and will be arrested. This is taking something from someone. It is like theft, if you take all of someone's personal momentos (photos etc.) and they don't have copies, you have taken it from them permanently. Rapeis definitely takin someone's virginity if they still had it.

Technically no.

Despite the horror they went through, scientifically they have lost their virginity.

Though, since sex is a consensual thing, they may mentally consider themselves a virgin.

Side: No

Unfortuently they technically are not for the fact that the definition of a virgin is someone who is "the state or condition of being pure, fresh, or unused" when you are raped you are no longer pure, fresh, and/or unused.

Side: yes
