“Why is much of men’s aggression against women sexual in nature?

…If the superiority of the penis over the vagina is being established through male sexual violence against females, then males benefit from this violence in their everyday interactions with females if they remind females that they, males, have a penis, and the women have a vagina. The more frequently females (and males) are reminded of the dominance of the penis over the vagina, the more rewards all men reap from some men’s sexual violence against women…

By compulsively sexualizing their interactions with females, males remind both themselves and females that males are dominant.”
