I’m immediately reminded of the image of the rapist Brock Turner. It’s like the idea of a guy named Brock Turner raping an unconscious girl behind a dumpster and then getting a slap on the wrist because he was a promising athlete is burned into my mind. So yeah, when I hear rapist I think Brock Turner the rapist.
