Create rough draft by converting the full-sentence outline into the body of your paper. Visuals should be present in the paper. Paragraphs should be complete with topic sentences, and should reveal the counter arguments as well as support for the main arguments.  Transitions between paragraphs are smooth.  Includes a fully formatted APA reference list


I Introduction A. Thesis: Even if rape is biologically programmed in men's brains, both cultural and direct education should be the universal strategy employed to prevent its occurrence. B. There are two contrasting arguments--one by Thornhill and Palmer in their book A Natural History of Rape, and another by Michael Kimmel, Evolution, Gender, and Rape. II Thornhill/Palmer Argument A. The argument made by the two authors in their book is that men are biologically programmed to rape. B. They further argue that there are several motivations for rape, and add that desire for sex by the rapist is one of them. C. The authors state that rape occurs in all cultures. D. The authors state that "There is no connection. . .between what is . . . naturally selected and what is morally right or wrong." E. They insist, however, that "refusal to refrain from damaging behavior. . . could be seen as a ground for holding irresponsible individuals more culpable, not less so." They further argue that punishment is a good idea for rape. F. Women should be educated also so they can avoid rape. III Kimmel Argument A. Michael Kimmel states that Thornhill and Palmer say that rape "is only about sex." B. Kimmel states that "Rape is a multidimensional phenomenon," and that "Thornhill and aPalmer's view of rape is monochromatic and embraces only a small fraction of its remarkable variety." C. According to Kimmel, Thornhill and Palmer use "bad history" in their book as well. D. Kimmel writes, "I believe that rape rates are lower today because women have more power. . . " E. He admits that "virtually all of us are 'failed attempted date rapists.'" F. Thornhill and Palmer use bad politics: "Women must be informed about men's . . . predisposition to rape because it does matter how they dress and which parties they. . . go to." G. Thornhill and Palmer are "anti-male" and "hate men." IV Compare/Contrast Both Arguments A. Compare/Contrast "rape is only about sex." B. Compare/Contrast "biologically inclined to rape." C. Compare/Contrast "rape rates." D. Compare/Contrast changing mores of Western society re rape. V. Conclusion There should be a massive campaign in our culture and in our schools to educate males and females about rape in order to prevent it. Where did you place the most effective arguments in your paper? Explain your reasoning. The most effective would be toward the end of the paper, you work up to these so that they stand out sounding more important.
