People are affected by what they see.
Young people, having access to this material will be affected by it.
When they see that the portrayal of rape is acceptable, as you demand it is, then that implies that rape, if you can get away with it is acceptable.
This is a complete no-brainer.
OK, I agree as to affect, but we're not arguing about 'being affected,' we're arguing about 'any particular effect' one might experience. Everything that everyone experiences affects them, but in what way and to what extent is the question. I'd say that it varies from individual to individual, and that actually it shall always depend upon ones current state of mind during the exposure, such that the psyche that's already present shall dictate what they take away from it. And I still say that the parent is 100% responsible for both the childs exposure, and what it is that they finally take away from it. If one is truly a good parent, their child shall not seek it, and if accidentally exposed shall know how to responsibly handle it. Again, there is no such thing as a bad child, only bad parents. With anything that your child becomes, you only have to look into the mirror to find out why.
Don't you dare put words into my mouth, due to either your thick headedness, or your purposeful attempt at deception, not once have I alluded to violence as being acceptable. Remember I was once a victim, of something similar, but it wasn't a movie, it was real life. Also I have viewed depictions of human sexuality, however I have yet to rape, or otherwise sexually abuse anyone. If you use my example for either side, then you loose, as it supports my side of the argument completely, why do you think I have come to this conclusion?. Because I lived it. And anyone that has not experienced it first hand, has no right to comment on it, because they cannot possibly know, and in fact are merely projecting an image of their own guilt onto another's experience, so as to seemingly make sense of it.
