But that just repeats the original problem: the removal of the word

But that just repeats the original problem: the removal of the word \"rape culture\" in its entirety. Which this ENTIRE thread was about.

In fact, the entire issue detractors have with rape culture is placing focus on society\", while they believe focus should be on the PERSON. Rape culture is the word used for larger issues (done by innocent or well-meaning people) which contribute to a rapist\'s actions, how people react to their actions, and how victims are screwed by their actions before, during and after the action in question. Focusing specifically on the rapist is, in function, denying the point of \"rape culture\" as a term.

In other words, your current write-up doesn\'t have anything \"allegorical\" about it. Kilgrave isn\'t an \"allegory of a rapist\" because he IS a rapist. That\'s like saying {{Superman}} is an allegory of a {{superhero}}.

Kilgrave has to be an allegory for some sort of concept or event, not the literal thing he is.
