A strong word used to describe a person who undergoes physical force or duress to have sexual intercourse.
It is a sensitive word, especially to the female population. Not to say that the opposite gender does not suffer as victims of this vicious act, but it definitely rings a bell to the rest of us women, simply due to the injustice that we have received on our end whenever such a tragedy happens. It is deeply unfortunate, infuriating and saddening for us.
So, why is it so bad for us to hate or dislike the word? Say whenever someone takes the word in vain and use it to define some other concept that has NO CONNECTION WHATSOEVER to what that person wishes to deliver. For example:
- insta-rape : used to describe whenever a person's Instagram is hijacked
- "Germany raped Brazil in last night's match!"
