    We are all socialized into believing what constitutes rape, and often it's twisted towards the misogynist, paternalistic view of women as slutty temptresses and men being sex animals with no self-control and therefore not responsible for their own actions.

    The only way to end this is to develop healthier attitudes on sex and sexuality, and not the Puritanical ones that conservatives like to ram down our throats.
