r. k.--
Why all the uproar about the buggery scene in PULP FICTION (many people have
mentioned it)?  Yes, it was unpleasant but (I must climb upon the feminist
soapbox for a brief moment) how many scenes of rape/violence against women
are depicted each year in many, many films with little or no comment.
 However, when a man is raped in a movie, it's the source of much discussion.
 Is sexual violence more disturbing to the viewer when it's inflicted upon a
man, or is it just that people notice it more because viewers are less
accustomed to seeing it?  Comments, anyone?
