    NO - NEVER.

    Whether or not you bring that argument, and the fact that animals also 'rape' to justify rape, you cannot get away from the fact that part of being human is the ability to 'think' and know what right and wrong is, and also humans also have a social conscience. Therefore, you cannot convince the civilized world that rape is instinctive - the urge to rape may be instinctive (I won't argue that point), but going beyond the urge and actually raping someone is a conscious decision by the rapist.

    At no time is this conscious decision driven by instinct.

    No, not in our enlightened age.  Even though it has occurred regularly throughout history for as long as there have been humans fighting for land, hunting grounds, or their religion.

    It has nothing to do with sex other than for the rapsit to assert his control over another human being. Rape is the psychological and spiritual MURDER of another human being.
