Rape 2009, John B. Pryor, Ph.D. Illinois State University Rape Poem by Marge Piercy There is no difference between being raped and being pushed down a flight of stairs except that the wounds inside also bleed. There is no difference between being raped and being run over by a truck except that afterward men ask if you enjoyed it. There is no difference between being raped and

going head first through a windshield except that afterward you are afraid not of cars, but half the human race. Brownmillers typical definition ...The perpetration of an act of sexual intercourse with a female, not ones wife, against her will and consent, whether her will is overcome by force or fear resulting from the threat of force, or by drugs or intoxicants, or

when because of mental deficiency, she is incapable of rational judgment, or when she is below an arbitrary age of consent. Criminal Sexual Assault in Illinois The accused commits criminal sexual assault if he or she: (1) commits an act of sexual penetration by the use of force or threat of force; or (2) commits an act of sexual penetration and the accused knew that the victim was unable to understand the nature of the act or was unable to give knowing consent; or

(3) commits an act of sexual penetration with a victim who was under 18 years of age when the act was committed and the accused was a family member; or (4) commits an act of sexual penetration with a victim who was at least 13 years of age but under 18 years of age when the act was committed and the accused was 17 years of age or over and held a position of trust, authority or supervision in relation to the victim.

Conclusions Women who felt stronger bonds to their sorority sisters were more likely to conform to the groups prevailing views about rape myths. Those in sororities where beliefs in rape myths were prevalent came to endorse rape myths over time. Those in sororities where doubts about rape myths were prevalent came to doubt rape myths over time.

You see a Trick waltzin down the strip and think to yourself, Where did it all go so wrong?" You almost feel a disillusioned sense of pity for them. What you don't realize is that almost all girls are whores in their own ways, at least the common street hooker has made the realization to cut out all the bullshit and demand exactly what she wants. Whores come in all shapes and sizes; they are The Social Status Whore : Most commonly known as jersey chasers or letter sluts. These girls seek out any and all guys that will improve their social standing in society. They crave any dick that can show them a Good Time," wanting to only fuck dudes that have huge parties to go to or that have a wide array of friends. The Relationship Whore : Watch out for these ones, they prey on dudes that have been, or already are in a long-term relationship. The relationship whores are usually easy to spot. They are most likely to want to: hold hands, cry (a lot), make you earn your blow jobs, display their affection publicly (to claim your dick as conquered), say I love you (expecting a positive response), and lastly always want to know where you are and what you are doing. WARNING, do not fuck around with these chicks if you want to have promiscuous sex, once a relationship whore has attached herself to

your dick it is very hard to get her off of it, she will always want to "work things out . The Dick Whore: Almost always unattractive in some way or another, the dick whore is most likely the best sex you will have. These girls are quite literally addicted to dick. You have probably seen thousands of them at parties. They stick out like a sore thumb; the dick whore will be one of the last girls to leave a party. They will milk their one to two beers all night just to get a shot at crunch time. You see crunch time happens around 2:30 to 3:30 depending on whom you hang out with. It is the only time that a man rationalizes in his head Am I going to fuck that ugly bitch over there, or am I going to go home and carve one out." The dick whore's biggest competition is your hand, so if you don't want to end up fucking around with a nasty ass slut take some preemptive measures and slice one off before you go out. CAUTION. Always wrap it up with these girls, STD's are not fun, and dick whores are almost guaranteed to have at least one. Drug Whores : You can break drug whores on college campuses into two broad groups. - Weed whores : On a college level a weed whore stems from the prissy church girl trying to go wild. You will get them high for the first time and they realize that they like it and they want to get high every day. Then they also come to the

conclusion that 50 dollars for a bag of good dope is ridiculous. So what do they do? They call you to hang out." At first you do just get high, but soon she will realize that she needs to start pulling her weight. So she can either start packing it up or start sucking it down. Most girls will make the right decision. Always make sure to lose these girls after like a month because all those late night smoking sessions will lead to one obese and pale woman. - Coke whores : This is by far the bottom of the barrel. Having sex with a coke whore is as easy as saying "Would ya fuck me for blow?" If you have ever wondered why that extremely hot chick is with that dork ass dude, cocaine is probably the answer. Watch out though, although nose candy may seem like the easy answer, that shit is expensive. The coke whore will fo sho suck your penis dry, but your wallet will get sucked dry even faster. But if you're looking for some quick ass, throw down the 50 bucks because having sex with girls for drugs is cool. Now I know that there are exceptions to these rules, but much like stereotypes these are for the most part true. I also realize that I left out money grubbin hoes, but aren't they all looking for money??????

From ISUSkanks.com The donkey punch Social Dynamics of Date Rape Shotlands 3 Types of Date Rape Beginning Date Rape Early Date Rape Relational Date Rape The Couple

is the Unit of Analysis Reasons for Sexual Miscommunication between Men and Women Many men and women do not discuss their sexual intentions openly and frankly. Men perceive people as having more sexual interest than women do. Women sometimes engage in token resistance. (40% in 1 study)

There are differing expectations concerning the course of the relationship when sexual intercourse is appropriate. (50% of men by the 5th date, only 25% of women) Psychological Responses of Rape Victims Rape Trauma Syndrome - A variety of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder Three Phases:

Acute Phase - usually about a month Long-Term Reorganization Phase may last a year or longer Resolution Stage - rape is no longer a central focus of her life Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Can result from rape, child abuse, and other traumatic experiences General pattern for trauma survivors

About 1/3 seem to recover spontaneously. About 1/3 develop symptoms that remit after about 2-3 months. About 1/3 have symptoms that persist for 6 months or longer. Similar pattern is seen in rape survivors. Psychological distress is not affected by stranger vs. acquaintance rape. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Avoidance Symptoms Try not to think about it

Avoid people/places that are reminders Re-Experiencing Symptoms nightmares flashbacks Physiological symptoms easily startled/jumpy difficulty concentrating panic attacks (increased autonomic arousal) Treatment of PTSD

Challenge cognitive distortions (examples: it was my fault or all men are dangerous or I cant sleep in my bedroom anymore) Relaxation training to cope with anxiety Re-telling the story of what happened to help with cognitive & emotional processing What would happen if you reported a sexual assault to campus police?

Talk with police officer Written account of what happened Medical attention (for treatment and evidence collection) What happens to the perpetrator depends in part on what the victim wants: Record in perpetrators file If perpetrator is ISU student, campus judicial system may be involved Criminal prosecution (through states attorney)
