The President of the United States made a comment which gives me hope that maybe, just maybe, things are slowly starting to turn around. He said:
” … if you give a woman, or a man, for that matter, without his or her knowledge a drug and then have sex with that person without consent, that’s rape.”
He is right but so often some people have double standards when it comes to men and women. They see the woman as being sexually assaulted but the man as being “lucky.” This is one reason why female sex offenders can get away with doing just this kind of behavior and no one, often including themselves, see this as being wrong.
A man gets a lady drunk and takes advantage of the situation and it is seen as wrong, however a lady gets a man drunk and takes advantage of the situation and it is seen as fine. These type of double standards need to go.
