They see and hear things that make them have psychological issues. Later many rapists express themselves by raping victims to get back at their childhood. Rapists are brought up in an environment where their control does not have any meaning. A psychological approach that affects rapist minds is the behavioral approach. The behavioral approach is “based on the concept of explaining behavior through observation, and the belief that our environment is what causes us to behave differently or suffer illnesses.
Some people, like Simon, understand this concept and he says: ‘Maybe there is a beast... maybe it’s only us.’ Other people, like Ralph, do not want to believe that there is a dark side to humanity and in Chapter 2 he constantly shouts: ‘but there isn’t a beast!’ Golding successfully gets across his message that there’s ‘darkness in man’s heart’ by the frightening way he describes several events in the book. The killing of the mother sow is an extremely shocking event in the novel. When it describes that ‘the great bladder of her belly was fringed with a row of piglets’ it shows how savage the boys have become and how much they have changed, especially Jack, because at the beginning of the novel he had difficulty killing the piglet because of ‘the enormity of the knife descending and cutting in to living flesh’ and now ‘practice had made Jack silent as the shadows.’ The quote ‘wedded to her in lust’ shows us that they specifically want the female pig and won’t rest until they have her. The scene is extremely graphic and the notion of what they are doing is terrifying. The fact that the pig went from being ‘in maternal bliss’ to ‘dim-eyed and grinning faintly’ is also terrifying, because they took something innocent and turned it into something wicked, which is essentially what happened to them.
The first evidence we see of Hooper’s bullying is the note that he drops from a window when Kingshaw first arrives, ‘I didn’t want you to come here’. This immediately sets the tone and strikes conflict between the two boys, sparking fear and insecurity within Kingshaw, knowing that he already isn’t wanted and hasn’t even spoken to Hooper yet. Through the use of flashbacks we gain insight into Kingshaw’s past which reveals how insecure he is which due to lack of love from his mother. This fear and insecurity is what Hooper thrives on, targeting on these weaknesses. To get away from Hooper and his torment, Kingshaw runs away to Hangwood.
The average psychologists will state that a rapist is a man who had childhood experiences that were relatively difficult to deal with and now they cannot relate to women in a successful manner which ultimately is a defect called sexual inadequacy. This theory however, only applies to very few cases of rape. According to some sociologists, it is sexual permissiveness that causes rape. In societies that are more sexually permissive, men take rejection from women personally which results in severe frustration which forces them to rape women. Other sociologists refer to the feminist theory of gender inequality when discussing rape.

It has been said that a person who rapes someone is a control freak of sorts. I can recall my ex being a controlling person, but never expected he was one who could rape a child.
Even though there is statistical data available from statistical surveys we are still stuck with stereotypical conclusions and misconceptions about men who rape. Part of the reason is because behavioral scientists have not studied such individuals. Rapists are not known to self-refer themselves to clinics, hospitals, or private services. Also, those who are identified to the result of imprisonment and conviction either do not appreciate that their behavior is inappropriate or fear that revealing their concerns to someone will lead to them being locked up in prison or a mental hospital. Because of the absence of such knowledge of the offender, the nature of their behavior is misconstrued and misinterpreted.
