Do you think that rape is considered a hate crime?
The definition of a hate crime is "a crime, usually violent, motivated by prejudice or intolerance toward a member of a gender, racial, religious, or social group."
So what do you think?
Yes and No.
Obviously many rapes can fit into the definition of 'hate crime', but even those that don't are still acts of hatred and are unacceptable and vile.
No-one who loves themselves or another, or understands respect can commit such an act.
