It sounds odd, but we live in a rape culture. We have for a long time. It's taboo to talk about -- not to do, but to talk about. Raped? Shut up. Molested as a kid? Never speak of it, not in this family! Harassed at school? Get over it, and stop overreacting; you should be glad they're paying attention to you. (LOL, Irony is fun). It's a mad, mad world!
And while males seem all bad, how about we point some of that wagging finger at the other half, too, the contributors, enablers, colluders? If kids get mad for being molested, they seem to get much madder that their "protectors" kept silent or turned a blind eye -- betrayal, betrayal!

It's not just the force, there's plenty of coercion, intimidation, and shaming when it comes to sex. Oh, the shame of it all! We've normalized graphic, violent porno, so much so that that seems like "sex" to US, not just to perpetrators but to enjoyers of sex.
