Is it true that rape was used as a weapon against conquered Muslim women by the crusaders?
>>
>>669073
>used as a weapon
What does that even mean?
>>
>>669073
Given that it was a war, and that's what conquering armies tend to do then yes it's most likely true.
>>
>>669073
Probably not since Knights followed the Chivalric code.

Whats with the Muslim/Crusaders Threads going on on /his/ lately?

Not that I mind, it's fairly interesting. It just smells like the work of /pol/
>>
>>669073
No, it's unlikely that they used rape as a weapon. They probably raped women though.
>>
>>669073
No otherwise blue eyes would be a lot more common in the middle east
>>
>>669073

Why would you rape people you see as dirty and beneath you?
>>
>>669073
it wasn't a weapon, they did it for their amusement
>>
>>669120
Because you find them hot. Either that or for the UNLIMITED POOWAAAH!
>>
Maybe to shame them and try to get rid of their modesty but more than anything I think it would be rape just for pleasure like all conquering armies ever have done
>>
>>669086
The vast majority of crusaders were not knights.

Power

>>669219
But amongst equals there's no need to exercise power. Only if you believe there's no such equality will you feel the sense to exercise and show this power.
>>
>>669073
>Rape in war

They were dumb enough to do that.
>>
Not by knights. The Templars only ate three meals a week as a devotion to Christ, it seems unlikely they would be raping women.
>>
>>669233
>But amongst equals there's no need to exercise power

the other way around
>>
>>669073
A large leading part of the Crusade was inspired by racism and rpae was used in an adtempt to destroy the darker races
>>
>>669399
Not every Knight was a Templar.
>>
>>669709
I'm pretty sure the Crusades weren't racially motivated.

At all.

Sure,
If you are a liberal, cuckold, tumblrfag, piece of shit, faggot.

Friendly reminder its not rape when they want it

I was a crusader and I indeed dicked plenty of girls but now I'm in hell so it wasn't really worth it despite the memes it's cold as fuck in here.

Rape has been used as a weapon, demoralizing factor, subjuctation tool since the dawn of men. Heck even chimps rape, once they conquer the land of a neighbouring "tribe"
>>
>>669709

There's that word again, no, the crusades were not based around racism.

Serbs did the same thing in the 90s.

Its probably fair to say rape happened in the past. No army is immune to it.

Well, we're asking if rape was used as a weapon. It might have happened, but rape as some sort demoralization weapon certainly wasn't employed, since the Crusades were lead by the Church.

They weren't really targeting Muslims outside one or two massaraces in Jerusalem. Quite the opposite actually, lower taxes made the crusader states a place many Muslims from Seljuk lands settled which is lamented by said Seljuks in their memoirs and letters of state.

Denying the the face rape hate rape was used on the hated dark skins by Europeans is just ridiculous.

>"greatest phenomenon of massrapein history", and has concluded that at least 1.4 million women were raped in East Prussia, Pomerania and Silesia alone. According to Natalya Gesse, Russian soldiers raped German females from eight to eighty years old. Russian women were not spared either.

I thought the Germans had it worse.

And these dumb fucks chose to wage war. I'm certain some Templar lives could have been saved, or even battles won, if the Knight actually had regular caloric intake.

race was not at all a factor in the crusades. Most Christian drawing from the crusades depict the Saracens exactly like Franks
>>
>>669109
It's actually Muslims and people who are associated with Islamic cultures. I've asked several of them. There are a surprising number of Turks browsing this board and they've all got a bone to pick with Europe.

Indulgences meant crusaders could do whatever they wanted.

People used rape as a means to pacifi conquered people it's psychological warfare
>>

what
>>
>>669073

What is that supposed to mean? Like they had a policy in place to rape women specifically to demoralize? I think it's a lot more likely they did it because they were horny/for the lulz. If you wanted to use rape to pacify and demoralize troublemakers, you would rape the men.

You have a basic misunderstanding of the nature of man and violence if you think that rape is abnormal in times of war, my friend.

no anon, weapons were used as weapons against conquered muslim women by the crusaders

like pic related

rape, torture, piullage etc... is just what conquering armies do to people, theres was no distinct weaponisation of it in the crusades specificaly, shit just got done as usual

not that there arent historical examples of such things being used systematicaly, but i doubt crusaders were systematic enough to think of that, or to prevent it in any case

its all just humans being... human
