”If at any time you meet with a prudent woman, that man that offers to meddle with her, without her consent, shall suffer present death.”
The Pirate Code

"I mean, c'mon, rape! It's rape! Rape's number two. It's murder, then rape! It's number two, like, like the United States, we wanna capture Osama bin Laden, and murder him. We're not gonna rape him. That would be barbaric!"
Chris Rock, on the Jay Leno show, discussing Roman Polanski

"You should have had her before. When she was innocent."
Renard to Bond concerning Elektra King, The World is Not Enough

"Uniform Code of Brotherhood Justice Section 2, Line 27: 'any form of sexual assault of any kind by a member of the Brotherhood is considered a Class 1 Offense against the Messiah, punishable by summary execution.'"
Brother-Captain Allen note , Tiberium Wars

"He talked about rape for a while, and explained how rape is much worse than murder. With murder, the victim is gone, and not forced to deal with what happened to her. The family must deal with it, but not the victim. But rape is much worse. The victim has a lifetime of coping, of trying to understand, of asking questions, and, the worst part, of knowing the rapist is still alive and may someday escape or be released. Every hour of every day, the victim thinks of the rape and asks herself a thousand questions. She relives it, step by step, minute by minute, and it hurts just as bad."
— John Grisham's A Time to Kill, from Jake Brigances's closing statement.

Cyrus: I despise rapists. For me, you're somewhere between a cockroach and that white stuff that accumulates at the corner of your mouth when you're really thirsty. But, in your case, I'll make an exception.
Cyrus: Can you fly, Johnny?
Johnny 23: No.
Cyrus: You keep that in mind when you look at her, because if your dick jumps out of your pants, you jump out of this plane!

Cameron Poe, as he beats the living shit out of Johnny for trying to rape the female guard, Con Air

"If you miss the quick-time event to fight off the attempted rapist—which I did 'cause the timing is really annoying on those things—then it turns out he only wanted to throttle her to death! PHEW! Maybe we shouldn't be so quick to misjudge these hairy cultist murderers."

"By its very nature, rape displays a "total contempt for the personal integrity and autonomy" of the victim; 'short of homicide, [it is] the "ultimate violation of self.'"
Coker v. Georgia, 433 U.S. 584, 597, 603 (1977)

"Along with other forms of sexual assault, it belongs to that class of indignities against the person that cannot ever be fully righted, and that diminishes all humanity"
Mary M. v. City of Los Angeles, 54 Cal.3d 202,222 (1991)

"Rape is an abhorrent crime that taints the purity and dignity of its victims, especially children, often reducing them to mere shells of what used to be their happy and spirited selves. The man who rapes his own child strips himself of the love and respect due him as a father and a human being. Being thus a slave of his prurient desire, he is reduced to a level lower than beasts. He is no more than a soulless husk and deserves to forfeit his place in human society."

"I have little doubt that, in the eyes of ordinary Americans, the very worst child rapists — predators who seek out and inflict serious physical and emotional injury on defenseless young children — are the epitome of moral depravity."
Kennedy v. Louisiana, Alito's dissenting opinion

"Last year, a girl was raped by two wastes of sperm and eggs while they sang the lyrics to our song "Polly". I have a hard time carrying on knowing there are plankton like that in our audience."
Kurt Cobain, liner notes for Insecticide

"[The Judge] said they should not be classed with common murderers. It would be an insult to these men who had at last [sic] a stark of manhood in their hardened souls, to have such brutes as these put in their class"
"Other prisoners loudly aproved [sic] the verdict"
Judge Ralph H. Latshaw and convicts of Missouri in this 1910 article about Georges Reynolds and John Williams being sentenced to hang for rape.

"If you take sexual advantage of her, you're going to burn in a very special level of hell. A level they reserve for child molesters and people who talk at the theater."
Shepard Book, Firefly

Yeah, bragging about taking advantage of a drunk woman on a song is wrong. But bragging for four albums straight about running an illegal drug cartel and blowing people's brains out with automatic weapons, that's ok?
The Rap Critic on Reebok's sponsorship of Rick Ross.

"As much as I love violence… I absolutely fucking hate sexual violence. It's… unseemly."

Joan: (Referring to a secret her mother doesn't want to talk about) What happened to her?
Businessman God: (Silence)
Joan: Is that why she's so weird about me dating?
Businessman God: (Silence)
Joan: (Slowly realizing that her mother was raped) …how bad was it?
Businessman God: …it was evil. And I don't throw that word around.

"In America, there's a burglary every 11 seconds, an armed robbery every 65 seconds, a violent crime every 25 seconds, a murder every 24 minutes and 250 rapes a day."
Marion Cobretti, Cobra

Diodora: Don't worry, I've forgiven you... After all, being part of your club is the reason why she's gotten her hopes up so high! She'll drop into the deepest despair imaginable once I've killed her friends in front of her very eyes... Asia is still a virgin, isn't she? I don't want the Red Dragon Emperor's sloppy seconds.
Issei: Shut your mouth.
Diodora: I do like the idea of stealing her away from you, though. Our own custom version of prima nocta!
Issei: Shut up...
Diodora: I must say that the mere thought of raping Asia as she calls out your name is absolutely delicious!

Nothing, or no one, was sacred. The victims included newborn infants and toddlers. The mentally retarded, both young and old were victimized. There were also physically handicapped people, the elderly, and of course the dead, for the necrofeliacs. Those numerous victims were sodomized and forced to perform fellatio. They were tortured into performing unnatural acts, leaving them all physically and emotionally scarred for life. Others, perhaps the fortunate ones, had died.
Steven Herberts, The Correctional Officer Inside Prisons (page 94)
