Psychological projection is a theory in psychology in which humans defend themselves against their own unconscious impulses or qualities (both positive and negative) by denying their existence in themselves while attributing them to others. For example, a person who is habitually rude may constantly accuse other people of being rude. It incorporates blame shifting.
How a rape happens? The man loses control of his sexual desires and reverts to animal instincts (apes do it all the time, both chimps and orangutans).
Why do women think men are likely to be rapists? Because they themselves have lost control over their sexual desires. They know perfectly well that Chad No.8 will dump her the morning after just the same way Chad No.7 did, but they still go for it. They know they should find themselves a good man and get married, but they still go out partying and having ONS. They simply can't control themselves.
When they project their own lack of control on men, they see rapists everywhere. Remember this as a red flag: the more slutty a woman is, the more scared of rape she is.
PS: it works both ways. All of us here see women as cheating ho's, because we, ourselves, are advocates of cheating (we just call it plating).
