And that’s not all. 43% of college men will admit to using “coercive behavior” to have sex with a woman… which of course is also rape.
Rape culture trains sociopaths.
this is good to have. I always want these studies and I always have trouble finding them via google.
This is very informative and super interesting. These men obviously know that rape is wrong—if you use the word rape, they freak out, because they know rape is wrong. But the problem is, they don’t seem to know what rape IS…because what they’ve admitted to is definitely rape.

If this happens to you please fin a friend, RA or trusted adult to help you report the crime and support you. I know this can be vary scary for multitude of reasons, including but not limited to the way society blames victims, not wanting to mess up someone’s life, feeling like you led the guy on etc. If you were harassed or assaulted, if you did not consent verbally, enthusiastically and physically, if you weren’t sober please try to accept that you were not at fault, that what happened to you was wrong. If you report what happened you may prevent the same thing from happening to other girls. It’s a brave and good thing to do.
