I really dislike the rape concept in stories. No matter how good the story may be, rapes are a turn off for me and I'll instantly stop reading. But I not only hate rapes in fiction but in real life too. Today a friend of my mom tolds us about two cases of sodomia in a school of our town. That school is famous for it; everyday boys and girls that study there are raped by older students and even teachers. However, everyone always pretends it never happened. The school staff tries to keep it for themselves while the victims feel too much ashamed to talk, and it seems like the parents too. People in town know what happens but without testimonies no one can do anything. Whatever, it was the first time someone actually talked and that's how everyone heard about the two cases. I felt so bad for the kids and for their mothers who are really suffering. That was when I started thinking: "how is it that there are people who love getting their characters raped or even think about getting them raped?" I know authors that even enjoy it. I don't understand it. So I wanted to know what you guys think about this concept, in fiction and in real life. How you feel about it and about people that you know have been raped? Have you ever gotten a character raped? If yes, how did you feel about it? Do you really think it was a good idea to write that? And most importantly, do you really think it was necessary for the plot?
