If she is fighting you at the time and crying? Definitely. Sadly, they are so common that many people just don't see them any more. You can't see any crime drama without seeing a rape reported (or indeed depicted.) Right. Most people don't. They sorta do. The Simpsons, as dumb as it often is, is part of our culture. So is fast food, because it's commonplace. So are cars. So are traffic jams. So, sadly, is rape. "Built" around it? Agreed; it's not built around rape (just as it isn't built around any one concept.) Is it a part of our culture? The awareness that women being raped is a common - and indeed even likely under some conditions - outcome for women who are alone? Almost certainly. Teen girls get lectures about getting into a car alone with a boy, or going somewhere with a stranger, lectures that teen boys almost never get. This isn't because of some conspiracy to make girls afraid. It's because parents are part of this culture as well, and in this culture, the threat of rape is very real.
