A woman who was forced to have oral sex by her estranged husband bit off his penis. In the ensuing fight the husband, a senior official at the Ministry Of Defence, stabbed her in the arm, but she managed to grab the knife and stabbed him in the abdomen. He died from his injuries shortly afterwards.
But I do have a question that I think is worth putting out there (is anyone else asking this same question?)
Why doesn't this happen more often?
When oral sex is not consensual, a man shows his dominance by putting the very symbol of his masculinity into a potential chopping block. My question is simply, why don't more women (or men) take advantage of this opportunity to avenge the man who is forcing them into this situation? Is this the ultimate show of power - to give your subject the opportunity to do you serious harm knowing the subject won't take it?
Perhaps it happens more often than is reported, but if it gets to police reports, I'd expect it would get publicized, though hospital records wouldn't be as accessible.
Perhaps the mouth (I don't want to assume it's always a woman, or use the word victim, so unless someone comes up with a better word I'll leave it at this) is simply too afraid of retribution.
Perhaps the mouth is revolted by the idea of biting down.
Perhaps the mouth doesn't believe it will succeed.
Perhaps the mouth has been socialized to not bite.
Would this happen more often if women had penises and men supplied the mouths?
I'm guessing that men and women react differently to this sort of story, but I'm not sure what those reactions are. Is there one main reaction for each gender or are there several main reactions for each gender?
If the facts in the story prove true, should she be charged with anything or just let go? Will men answer this question differently then women?
Am I kidding myself that I'm asking serious questions here? If you think I am, how would one have a serious discussion of something like this? What are the relevant issues?
