I am absolutely baffled by the idea that a husband who truly loves and respects his wife could want to have sex with her when she doesn't want it. Stranger, acquaintance rape, and marital rape between people who don't mutually love and respect each other despite being married are all possible for me to conceptualize because I can understand that it's not about sex, it's about having the power to intimately violate. But if husband's motivation is actually just wanting to have sex with his wife...how in the world could he think pressuring or forcing his partner would result in sexual pleasure? How in the world can a person expect to have satisfying sex with an unwilling or disinterested partner? Isn't the whole point of having sex to have *good* which means *mutually satisfying* sex? It's weird to me that a person could be happy with sex that makes their partner unhappy.

As for the case that Schlafly refers to, there doesn’t seem to be anything online about it from trustworthy sources, so I lack enough information to comment. But as Scott points out, it’s clearly not the case that our judicial system automatically believes women - and sometimes,unjustly.

"At one point, Schlafly also contended that married women cannot be sexually assaulted by their husbands."

That's a preposterous statement that I believe a large percentage of men (and women?) would agree with. While I doubt it would be easy to convict a man of raping his wife that does not make forcing yourself on someone sexually any less heinous.

As if the outrage wouldn't be potent enough had she been a grown woman who may, indeed, have put out rape-vibes. The responses to my observation about society at large as embodied in that one statement were off-the-wall frightening,
