  1. I think this article has very strong views on sexual assault, I think women should not put men down and pin point and say they are the reason so many young women get sexually assaulted because it’s not just girls who are the victim it’s the men out there too. But yet all the men get the blame on the worse and I think we need to start not looking at all men as a whole but an individual to start seeing change of what’s happening to the way society has changed and in the way we think of things being. These things have happened to us because we are in a vulnerable state of being and we get forced into doing things we don’t want to do which this all needs to stop we need to be aware of these things happening and wake up and realize that these things are not okay and that it’s okay to feel embarrassed.

    • Fortunately, the vast majority of men do not commit rape and sexual assault. Yet the vast majority of those who do commit such crimes are men. Which ends up hurting other men. So yes, sexual assault harms both women and men.

      So glad that so many men are against violence against women. See these, for instance, this organization: Men Against Violence Against Women https://mavaw.org
