Demystify AbuseCampaignRape is NOT synonymous with the use of physical force.⁣
A lot of people say rape happens when a rapist FORCEFULLY takes sexual advantage of a victim.⁣
But that is a HALF TRUTH.⁣
Rape is SEX WITHOUT CONSENT.⁣
Sex without consent may not ALWAYS be carried out with or by force or by the use of physical force.⁣
It could be cajoled, manipulative, or even by the use of treat and or blackmail.⁣
It could also be without the victim’s knowledge: drugging a victim.⁣
So, if we define rape as synonymous with physical force, we are saying, all these other forms are okay and that’s not okay.⁣
If you remember nothing from this post, I desperately need you to quickly remember three things:⁣
1. RAPE IS SEX WITHOUT CONSENT.⁣
2. FORCED CONSENT IS NOT CONSENT.⁣
3. RAPE IS NOT SYNONYMOUS WITH THE USE OF PHYSICAL FORCE.
