Being raped is as close to being murdered or tortured as it gets. Being physically forced into the most private and intimate act, reserved solely for the person you're in love with, by someone you don't even want touching you is unimaginably humiliating and degrading, and damages you beyond belief. You lose your ability to trust anyone, and it's severely limits your ability to openly feel love for other humans, sometimes for life. It forces you to see monsters in the faces of all men, even if you don't want to. It's closely akin to murder because it does kill a part of you that you can never resurrect.
