Rape and Sex: Two Sides of the Same Coin

“While we know rape is not-sex to the victim, rape is sex to the rapistThat arousal that rapists experience when raping? Yeah, that’s sexual arousal. You know, lust.

  1. This is also a super-important point when it comes to teaching people to not rape in the first place.

    Kids tend to learn the “…and penis inside vagina counts as sex” definition of sex (when Mom and Dad explain where babies come from, etc.) years before they learn the “…and it’s not sex at all if it’s not consensual” definition (not able to think abstractly enough until their mid-teens, not able to take Gender Studies classes until their late teens and 20s, etc.).

    In that meantime, some of them go on dates and could commit date rape (for example).

    These kids need to be taught what rape is and why to not do that *ahead of time*. Waiting until they’re old enough to grok the second definition could be waiting until it’s too late. 😡
