Why? Do you think depictions of rape should just be buried and not seen at all? Do you think they're okay in some mediums but not others? Kids have access to comic books, television and most have the wit to tune into movies online or via television. Rape can be and is depicted in all of these mediums.
Rape is a real issue in society, and the way to fight it is through awareness. What things like this do is create awareness, they create provocative imagery that forces thought on the subject. By being forced to acknowledge the issue, we are reinforced in our views on the matter, particularly since this is usually such a graphic subject.
Now look at the diorama. And I mean take a good damn look at it. Every panel from all the angles shown. We have three guardsmen there whose intentions are obvious. They have a prisoner, they have no high opinion of her and they are fully intending to use her for their own gratification. Look at the eldar. Her armour is being removed. She is alone. She is defenseless. This is what rape is, the victim has no hope and no way to be saved. That is the horrifying reality of the situation and this piece conveys that.
For the people who think this is some sick hobbyist's fap fest material, look at the man in the tank, scroll down to the last pov image in the set. See the look on that man's face? That is doubt. The desire to stop this heinous act weighed against the fear of what will happen to him if he does. The desire to just wish the whole situation away. That man is the part of humanity that knows that this is wrong but is too damn scared to try and stop it.
That man, my friends, is YOU
. That man is US.
Rape has to be acknowledged. Rape has to be stopped. No matter who the victim is.
To think otherwise is nothing but the selfish and cowardly opinion of the ignorant.
