I think it's common fact that 1 in 5 female college students are sexually assualted each year. Then you might think, well this doesn't apply to me. No this is a frightening number. Whether you are male or female, you have had someone in your life sexually assualted at one point in their life.
And you know whats scary, guys don't even realize what can be considered as sexual assualt. Even scarier that high school girls don't even realize somethings as sexual assualt until later in life.
Let me put my experience to let help us really understand. I went to a high school with a very over sexual student body and had a bad rep for teen pregnancies and violence. So condoms in strange places, butt and titty grabs were usual. I as well as ton of the girls saw it as minor harrassment and a part of life. Then during my sophmore homecoming, I remember dancing with a guy that I didn't know. I was wearing a somewhat poofy short dress and many guys had attempted to lift up that dress while dancing. This guy succeeded and literally grabbed be my crouch and forced me to keep dancing. It took a while for me to get out of that but I shook that off as an "Over the top Dancer". That was what we were taught to think when people did certain inappropiate things. That they were just overdoing things.
I first came to recognize sexual assualt as an actual thing when I had a drunk friend tackle me to the floor in order to grope my boobs. Even when sober, he thought he did nothing wrong. I remember hysterically crying that night because I thought he was going to rape me. He told me, I was being dramatic. He never realized how 3 years later, that shit still fucks me up late at night.
It sucks that now that I am a college student, I can't go to parties without guys trying to finger me, fondle me inappropiately, and a bunch of other things that fall into the category of molestation. It sucks that I can't even get too drunk even around my close aguy friends without them taking some type of advantage. It sucks that I can't walk down a street without being stared at or catcalled. It sucks that every night after work, I have to have pepper spray ready and be prepared to run if worst things come to worst. Am I not a woman? Am I not a human being that is due respect? If a ugly bitch grabbed a guy by his balls, he would be mad. Why can't I be mad if an ugly nigga touches me inappropiately.
But you know what sucks the most? These men think they are self-entitled to pussy. So when they can't get it by conviential means, they think they can just take it anyway. Men will do almost anything for pussy and front on girls that won't give it to them easily. And you know why men think this way? We teach girls to protect themselves yet we don't teach boys not to rape.
Thats why Sexual Assualt is so normalized. It keeps creeping up, it keeps being headlined in the news. If you are so sexually frustrated and misogynistic feeling you need two things: a therapist and a prostitute. If you have a son or daughter, please talk to them and let them be aware of whats wrong with fricken society.
