Comments on: Shocking news http://www.jbj.wordherders.net/2008/05/08/shocking-news/ "A man needn't go far to find a subject, if he's ready with his salt-box."--Uncle Pumblechook Wed, 14 May 2014 19:32:14 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.9.4 By: tbrock http://www.jbj.wordherders.net/2008/05/08/shocking-news/comment-page-1/#comment-10047 Thu, 08 May 2008 23:29:44 +0000 http://www.jbj.wordherders.net/2008/05/08/shocking-news/#comment-10047 there are some things in this article that are pretty surprising to a lot of people, however. First, I work in college sexual assault prevention, so it’s not a surprise to me. But, the fact that men are victims is typically not considered. Also, the fact that 25% of women were sexually assaulted is a pretty shockingly high percentage to a lot of people. 1 in 4. Think of four women you know, and then pick one. Sexually Assaulted. Also, the fact that this typically occurs between acquaintances is surprising to a lot of people as well, and is most important for students to be aware of.

My one criticism of this article is the fact that the words “Sexual Assault” and “Rape” were never used. “Unwanted sexual contact” sounds barely like anything. But the fact is, if you are kissed against your will, you’ve been sexually assaulted, and “unwanted intercourse” is Rape. Pure and simple. Let’s not make such a horribly criminal, disgusting, psychologically traumatizing thing seem less then it really is.It’s called Rape. Use the word.
