Date Rape

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

          Unfortunately, date rape has been around for a very long time but many young naive teenagers may not be aware of it’s existence. Sharon was date raped by a young punk who pretended they were going to the movies. As soon as they turned the corner his two friends hopped in the car, Sharon’s heart sank. After being degraded/dehumanized by all three punks she felt so ashamed, she didn’t even share it with her mother who would have called the police and caused all scums to go to jail for a very long time. What made matters worse is that they destroyed her reputation all over the school campus in addition to her neighborhood. They told everyone everything except the fact that it was by force and not by choice.

 

Date Rape is a form of acquaintance rape. The two expressions are frequently used interchangeably, but date rape distinctively refers to a rape in which there has been some kind of romantic or potentially sexual relationship between two individuals. Acquaintance rape also includes rapes in which the victim and perpetrator have been in a non-romantic, non-sexual relationship, for example as neighbors, associates, casual college acquaintances. Date rape is particularly common on college campuses but has been known to happen during high school years as well, where in more cases than not, the girl ALWAYS gets blamed. Alcohol or other date rape drugs, can be used by the perpetrator to execute his agenda.

…..***Young ladies please be careful and mindful of your surroundings behind closed doors and don’t be so trusting of the opposite sex, especially if you don’t know him well.***

~ Date Rape ~

My first sex encounter unfortunately was rape
By a friend who came for a dinner date
In the midst of eating he said come lets dance
…..Abruptly he threw me and tore off my pants

…..I tried everything I could to get him to stop
he ignored me and climbed right on top
I was very angry at having been betrayed
…..he acted as if everything was O.K.

Causally he said “well how was I?”
This despite tears coming down my eyes
I yelled at him to get out of my home
…..The whole rotten experience won’t leave me alone
