And there are plenty of rape scenes in movies too.
Nobody said there wasn't. Nor is anyone trying to fill a quota here.

Again, the question is whether a scene like that belongs in an X-Men movie.
This I won't venture an answer for, except shoehorning something awful like that in there just to explain who Kurt's parent are is a pretty terrible idea. Like Chuck Austen-level terrible, coincidentally.
