*Hugs Kristen323* You're awesome!! and it is so true, people think that rape isn`t a common thing when so many people I know have been raped or sexually assaulted, it`s sad what this world has come to.

(Reviving Ophelia, page 219) There`s a million pieces of evidence pointing to how messed up this world`s view of sex and sexual things are- "Teens were asked to respond to questions about circumstances under which a man `has the right to have sexual intercourse with a woman without her consent.` Righty percent said the man had the right to use force if the couple were married, and 70 percent if the couple planned to marry.
