He understands why someone would rape?

Anonymous
Me and my boyfriend were talking and I don't know how but came into a controversial argument and he basically could understand why someone would rape.
This bothers me because i think rape is overall wrong and shouldn’t be understood to begin with.
He says people argue that we evolved from animals and it’s animal like behavior to rape so that’s where he can understand it.
This bothers me so much because him understanding is showing sympathy towards something that’s just so gross and wrong. And In my argument for someone to stoop down to the level of an animal to excuse the reason why rape is ok to them is so stupid because aside from dolphins we are basically the most intelligent species if this was even a discussion about animals and what not.
I just really don’t know how to take this in about my s/o excusing rape in a sense..
am i wrong to do so? Am i taking it too personally, or am i taking the argument in the right direction
I’m providing screenshots so this argument isn’t at all one sided. I just don’t know how to express to him rape is bad other than “rape is bad” because i feel there’s no in between with it, he is viewing a grey area.

Thank you to everyone and their inputs, let’s try to stray away from our emotions on this as i am trying myself. I feel like the answers are going both ways on the spectrum whether I’m completely over reacting or I should just leave him. Name calling me or him isn't going to give me answers. Thank you for your time
