This is an odd thing to discuss. Have you thought a lot about prison rape?
I first learned that it exists in 2013 when a certain girl I been talking to on facebook told me that her ex-boyfriend, who is sexual offender, will probably get raped in prison. Up until that time I was assuming that prison rape is just a joke, but then when I been talking to her I realized no its not a joke, and thats why I was surprised.
As far as this being an odd thing to discuss, is it because you are so used to it that you don't even notice that it makes no logical sense (due to what I said in OP)? Also look at the replies of the form "it doesn't work that way". Well thats no answer. But yeah I remember other social things that seem counterintuitive yet all people have to say is "it doesn't work that way". For example: why do nice guys finish last? Because "thats how it works". Why people judge on first impressions instead of taking time to learn about the person? "Because thats how it works". You see, in those cases it is also counterintuitive, yet people don't see that it is, to them it simply "works that way" because they are used to it. The same goes for prison rape.
One way in which I differ from most people is that most people follow the crowd: when they see that something is commonly accepted, they don't question it. But in my case I operate in just the opposite way: if something that makes no sense is commonly accepted, that makes me question it all the more. Apart from the fact that it makes no sense as is, it ALSO makes no sense why no one else besides me asked that question!
Here is an example: when I been taking quantum mechanics course, right in the beginning of the course professor warned us about all the specific things about quantum mechanics that make no sense. So I was okay with it: since other people noticed those questions and admitted they are paradoxes, I can postpone trying to solve them and just focus on the course. But then, when I took quantum field theory course, there were new set of things that make no sense, but this time no one warned me about it. So because they didn't tell me that field thoery isn't supposed to make sense, I was thinking that I am really missing something since no one asks the same questions that I do. Hence, instead of studying quantum field theory I was stuck at tryin g to answer those questions, which ultimately screwed me up academically.
Well, prison rape is analogous to quantum field theory since no one else besides me ever asks or acknowleges those questions, which makes me really wonder why not.
