Was Jace really 'Crazy' for her, or did he just want to hurt her?


When Jace tried to come on to Caitlin, he said that Ethan wasn't interested, but he on the other hand was "crazy" about her. Is this true, or did he just want to sleep with her?

i think he didnt like 'losing' to ethan. he didnt like that caitlin thought ethan was more attractive and wasnt giving him a chance. so that made him act out.. in an 'i want i cant have' kind of way.

.xoxo.

He was clearly just insane.

Jace was definitely not crazy about her in that sense. He found her attractive and therefore he wanted to have sex with her. When he saw that she preferred his friend Ethan it made him angry and he decided he would have her anyway and ended up raping her to punish her and exert power over her. He was clearly sadisitic and sociopathic. Men like that will continue raping.

But I feel there are far more men like Jace in this world than we think. Men who act entitled to women's bodies, who refuse to accept rejection and who resent and slut-shame women who are sleeping with others but not with them.
This is very common behavior.

You are exactly right. Many rapist feel entitled to have sex with who they want and if rejected they take it very personal and rape the woman. They need that control. Many don't see what they did as wrong either. I'm a survivor of rape and heard one rapist speak to a support group. He had turned his life around and was sharing his story. He flat out believed that once a woman showed what he thought was even the smallest amount of interest such as a smile that he was entitled to have sex with her. He said "She can't say no. She just can't do that. No woman can." He said it with such sincere belief. He had twisted thinking which is no excise but my point is he fully believed he did no wrong. It actually made him mad and confused when the woman fought back, turned away or said no. He couldn't understand it and it made him angry.

Rape is a horrible crime and as a survivor of it I've wanted to understand why it's done but even with all I've tried to learn about it I will never fully understand. I've got to accept that.
