“The extent of the damage runs deep.” Yes, it does.
YouTube commentator Modern Primate has eloquently summed up the deep, societal issues surrounding the horrific rape of a teenage girl in Steubenville, Ohio and has a message for parents:
“Sure, we condemn rape (at least some of the time), but then as a society we go ahead and keep defending all of these behaviors that normalize the situations where rape is more likely to happen in the first place.”
Moms and dads, teachers and coaches to talk to their children about what really is. Teach them that being drunk does not imply consent, and engaging in any sort of sexual contact or penetration without consent is rape, that they are responsible for their own actions, and that nobody exists for anyone else’s use, pleasure, or amusement.
