Statutory rape laws are sought to protect the child or victim and punish the adult or perpetrator. These crimes are based upon the premise that until a person reaches a certain age, they cannot legally consent to sexual intercourse. Many states do not refer to statutory rape directly in their laws, but use designations such as sexual abuse or sexual assault to identify the prohibited act. Consent laws have defined parameters based upon the age of the child, (Broomfield, Ding, Iverson & Kandakai, 2013). Statutory rape laws differ from state to state, but exist in all fifty states in America.
The word “dangerous” could have a different meaning to people. The word can have many different contexts according to different people. When I read Steven Pinker’s list on dangerous ideas it made me wonder how most of these topics on this list can be quite difficult to talk about with others. The nature of these questions can cause uproar among people who all have different experiences or opinions. One of the questions that stood out to me in Pinker’s essay was “Do men have an innate tendency to rape?” This question caught my eye considering I do know women who have been raped by a man.
Sexual Assault and Rape Sexual assault can take many different forms, but one thing remains the same, it’s never the victims fault. The term sexual assault refers to sexual contact or behavior that occurs without consent of the victim. Rape is a form of sexual assault, but not all sexual assault is rape. Approximately 4 out of 5 of sexual assaults are committed by someone the victim knows, such as intimate partner sexual violence or acquaintance rape. There are some cases where the victim does not know their attacker.
There have yet to be controlled trials for the treatment of PTSD among male veterans who have experienced sexual assault.

Inadvertent recklessness Recklessness in the context of sexual assault could also be inadvertent recklessness. Inadvertent recklessness is when the accused failed to give any thought to whether the person may or may not be consenting. An example would be the case R v Tolmie , the appellant was convicted of sexual assault. The appellant and the complainant met at a club and they bonded. The appellant had intercourse with the complainant.
It’s mostly known and thought out to think that date rape is usually forced and not consensual, but is it really? Date rape is thought to be with a stranger or someone the victim just met but also usually is someone that the victim knows or just met. Date rape is forced and or without warning to the victim.The victim is often drugged and there state of mind is altered to not know what is occurring around them. Statistics show that date rape is the most common form of rape which is about 78 percent of all rapes. Rape is very common, 1 out of 4 girls fall victim to an attempt before they are 25 years old.
Particularly disturbing, there are no laws prohibiting child prostitution in Sudan. The term exploitation is not legally defined. Sudan has punishments of imprisonment for 3-10 for trafficking, 10-20 for aggravated trafficking, and capital punishment when victims dies as a result. Although Sudan does not acknowledge sex trafficking, reform has been made recently in the area of rape law in Sudan. The amendments to Article 149 (rape) to the 1991 Criminal Act expanded the range of acts deemed to constitute rape.
Even so, they have taken two other events relevant to the individuals involved in the case to spawn more interest. One, about the Intel the officer had on drug dealing, which held the victim’s involvement. The other one is of officer’s sexual assault charge in an unrelated lawsuit. In the Philando Castile incident, the channel has a one-sided story to tell. It goes on to explain about the officer Yanez’s events, rather than describing events happened on both sides.
The outcome following a sexual assault is sometimes referred to as being worse than the actual assault itself (The Hunting Grounds, 2015). Following the assault, the college campus, police, criminal justice system, media, and various other forms of institutions are known to re-victimize these individuals whom have already been previously assaulted. These numerous institutions are suppose to help, and report fairly and justly. Unfortunately that’s not the case in Liz Seccuro’s book, Crash Into Me, or in the film The Hunting Ground. Every single victim experienced a form of revictimization whether that is through false reports in the media, or the college campuses’ failure to report or help sexual assault victims.
