Natural History of Rape: Biological Bases of Sexual Coercion
Randy Thornhill (au); Craig T. Palmer (au). Uses evolutionary biology to explain the causes of rape & to recommend new approaches to its prevention. Evolved adaptation of some sort gives rise to rape; the main question is whether rape is an adaptation itself or a byproduct of other adaptations. Rape circumvents a central feature of women’s reproductive strategy: mate choice. This is why rape is devastating to its victims, esp. young women. Makes recomm. for rape prevention including teaching young males not to rape, punishing rape more severely, & studying “chemical castration.” Young women should consider the biological causes of rape when making decisions about dress, appearance, & social activities. Includes a useful summary of evolutionary theory.
